IELTS Speaking Answer | Something you bought that you are pleased to have
I bought it online from a website that specialized in kitchen equipment and supplies - and they delivered it to my home - I think it was like 4 days later, maybe.
I bought it online because the price was considerably cheaper than the ones I had seen in the local stores when I went to look, but it was the same brand and had all the same features so I thought it was a bargain.
I had to pay a little extra to get it shipped but even so it was still cheaper than buying it from the store – so I was really happy about that.
The day I got it I unpacked it and cleaned it before using it for the first time – and I made one of my favorite smoothies, which is a blend of bananas, apples and peanut butter.
Maybe it doesn’t sound so great - but when you blend it all together using frozen bananas instead of ice, and add some almond milk and some cinnamon – it’s really delicious – I’d almost forgotten just how good they were.
I hadn’t had one for a couple of months, so I made a big batch of it and what was left I stored in the refrigerator for later.
The particular model of blender I bought has some nice features like a really big jug, or bowl, and a powerful motor so it can slice and dice up even solid vegetables and juice them easily.
One of the reasons I bought it was because it was recommended on various consumer websites as being ‘the best buy’ at the moment - it also came with a 12 month warranty, which I thought was good, too. So I was really pleased with it.
