A great piece of equipment!
on 8 January 2015
I Love my new machine! Great bargain. Bought it just before xmas as my Bosh mini hand blender broke down after only 18 months (750W)... and I needed an aid with xmas preparations. I've chosen #Philips as I trust the brand (I already have a juicer -I'm using it regularly for 6-7yrs, the kettle and a toaster), and it was very reasonably priced.
I've used most of the options so far. I'm so happy with the blades, my hummus is creamier than ever. I make lot of salads so shredding the vegetables it takes only seconds now :) Oh and that little grinder is a star! used it to grind coffee beans and to make my curry paste from fresh spices like ginger, garlic, chillies etc. I don't have a dishwasher but everything is so easy to clean and store. Good material quality and it doesn't take too much space on the work top, which was important for my tiny kitchen.
I've noticed the comments about poor manual but who needs to read instructions these days anyway? All those appliances are bit like smart phones, very intuitive. And if you used something similar before, you don't need to read any instructions. The colour coding is very helpful... just be careful when handling the blades, I got 3 cuts on first day of using it. Maybe just because I was too excited about the whole thing ;)
