Portable green smoothie maker,
This review is from: Kenwood HB723 Triblade Hand Blender (Kitchen & Home)I bought this blender for one reason only - so that I could make green smoothies while on holiday (it is wonderful to be addicted to something so good for me!), and I am glad to say it works perfectly! I made daily smoothies in my hotel room, stored them in the jug, sealed with the excellent lid, and was delighted. The smoothies were not as silky smooth as if I had made them with the big blender at home, but they were delicious, and definitely smooth enough.
The fact that it is 700 watts is important, also that it has the jug and lid. I am very pleased with the detachable blade section (easier washing up)and the metal blender head (I once melted a plastic one using it touching the bottom of a hot pan).
The unexpected success has been the masher head. It is marvellous. I used it for the first time this evening on a pan full of 7 parsnips, a medium turnip and several carrots. The resulting mash was delicious, and a perfect texture - so much easier than pounding away with that hand masher.
Not sure I will ever use the beater, or the second plastic blender head, but you never know...
All in all, an excellent buy. I would recommend this to anyone who wanted more action out of their hand blender than just the odd sauce or soup.
