    Not the cheapest of blenders, but certainly feels well built, with the base heavy enough to sit stably on the worktop, and the lid fitting securely enough that I dare to leave the thing running by itself without carefully holding the lid down.

    I was skeptical of the "intelligent blender" moniker and assortment of buttons, but after trying it out, it does actually do as it says on the tin. It's rather nice to be able to shove some fruit etc in there, hit the "Smoothie" button, and walk away to do something else as it starts, stops, varies the speed etc appropriately, and finally stops of its own accord, leaving an excellent result.

    Decent powerful motor, too, capable of blending thick substances without getting bogged down.

    I even used it to make batter, simply dumping in flour, eggs, milk etc, switching it on, and ending up with a good result.

    So, not cheap, but a good solid performer, and worth considering if you do (or plan to do) a lot of blending / smoothie making etc.

    The attached movie gives a feel for how the blender looks in action and how the programs work, making a smoothie. See below for some more comments.

    This blender is a very solid, good-looking piec of kit with a high capacity jug and a snug fitting rubber lid with a hole to add additional ingredients. It has a powerful and high torque motor in its base which makes lightwork for the chopping side of things but even when running at full pelt it sits firmly and steadily on a worktop.

    It can be used as a "normal" blender with buttons controlling the speed of the blades (on/off and plus and minus to set power) but its main selling point is that it comes with eight programs for different tasks - this is not just a blender the packaging cries, this is an *intelligent* blender.

    What this means is that it comes with a set of named programs which run the blender for specified periods of time, changing the power and adding pauses as neccesary holding out the promise that you can just drop you ingredients into the jug and with the press of a button produce professional chef results.

    This *just* falls the right side of being a gimmick. As you can see from the smoothie video, some of the programs do have multiple stages and I was interested to see how long the blender ran for on this setting - I would not have left it so long - so this does have some value.

    Other programs were effective too.

    I have to admit I was a little bit hesitant about using this blender. I've always wanted a blender because I've seen them used on cooking shows etc and the idea appealed to me. I'm very impressed with this blender. It's easy to assemble out of the box but it does have simple instructions included in the box which are worth reading. The blender comes in 4 main parts, the base, the jug, the lid and the plastic plug for the filling hole in the lid. I was initially slightly concerned about the suction rubber lid fitting but after using the blender I can the benefit of that design. Before I used the blender I washed all the usable parts in hot water as instructed in the manual. The first dish I tried was banana smoothie. There are recipes included in the booklet to try but I didn't have the ingredients so I made mine up. I fixed the lid on and poured the ingredients through the hole. I broke the bananas in half and shoved them in with yogurt and orange juice and honey. Then I switched the blender on and hit the pre-programmed "smoothie" button and the blender did all the work! Very very clever. I waited for the programme to end (the blending was very noisy and shakey so make sure it's secure on a flat surface) and after a couple of minutes it was finished. I switched off the power and removed the jug whic is really easy to take on and off. Et voila! A perfect glass of banana smoothie. I'm really impressed. It handled the whole banana well and the smoothie was delicious - much better than when I do it with a hand blender. I was also worried about the cleaning but I rinsed the components out with hot water and left the jug with hot water to soak and it is very easy to clean. I can see me using this blender for a lot more uses like gravy and dips. There is also a button for "cake" which I'm about to try next using the griddled ricotta cakes recipe in the booklet. I'm going to test how easy it is to clean after doing batter in the jug. Overall, this gets a huge thumbs up from me.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    In the past this might have been referred to as a liquidiser. Breville call it a Blender. I think it's best regarded as a Smoothie Maker. The product exceeds the standard blender in that it has a high powered motor (at 800w), a number of pre-programmed blending options, and a good build quality.

    It could be better though. The blender will not fit under a standard work surface with cupboards above - a problem if you use it frequently and have limited storage space as it won't fit assembled in a standard kitchen cupboard either. That said, although the build quality is good it could be better and more attractive. I'd have preferred the base to be made of chrome rather than silver-coloured plastic. Perhaps surprisingly the recipe book with this Antony Worrall Thompson branded product is not very good. Only one smoothie recipe is given and it appears that generally there is one recipe for each of the pre-programmed modes. Worrall Thompson's recipes do little to sell the product however. Finally, as this is not described as a smoothie maker it lacks a tap from the blender to take blended drinks directly from the blender. You have to detach the blender jug for the base and pour the drink. However for cleaning - and most parts can be put into a dishwasher - the jug has to be detached anyway.

    Luckily a friend lent be a smoothie recipe book as this is where the product excels. It quickly makes a wide range of both fruit juice based and yogurt based smoothies. However, to work well the blender needs a fair amount of liquid added. Otherwise fruit becomes trapped and can only be moved towards the blending blades by turning the machine off and using a spatula to hand mix the content and move unblended fruit closer to the blades.
