1.It's a color- did we not learn anything from the green and gold 1970's? color can come back to haunt you! We don't keep any appliances out on the counter so I really wouldn't enjoy it's luscious redness very often- but still I figured it would cheer my pureeing when it ventured out of the appliance parking lot cupboard.
2. It's heavier-- and no lugging it around the kitchen wouldn't quite count as weight bearing exercise for warding off osteoporosis.
3. It holds less. As family of 5, three of those being boys, lets remember the role quantity plays in my life especially when it comes to food)
4. It cost more- okay no good counter arguments in favor of paying more.
5. Then there are the Braun "good design principles"- well science is the sexiest of all so you guessed it- Braun won.
