Very poor design,
This review is from: Kenwood SB 256 Smoothie Concert Liquidiser (Kitchen & Home)
I did manage to make some great smoothies with it, but it was mechanically very unreliable and seemed poorly designed. A safety switch in a slot at the back of the base unit, which is supposed to engage with the jug before you can turn the motor on, just did not work. The switch moved sideways, disappearing into the housing, rather than being pushed into the 'on' position by the jug. Once that happened the only way to convince the switch to come out of its hiding place was by poking a knife into the slot to release it - hardly safe !! The machine was very noisy, the drink dispensing tap very hard to clean, it and looked 'cheap', too, so I binned it.
