There is a recurring fault with this Magimix. The central spindle jams and when I complained I was referred to Magimix agents who were unable to help. Finally, I have found instructions for agents of how to release the bowl and spindle using cloths, blocks of wood, and implements to prise the jammed articles off the base. Not the dream machine I thought I'd bought. Terrible waste of money.
These boots are toasty warm, but as other people have said, definitely order one size down from your normal size. The only minus about them is the sole is not really suitable for icy conditions, as they don't have much tread. However, for cold dry weather they are great.
