Very good - if yours overheats, leave it alone for 30 mins...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips Viva Collection HR1617/01 Metal Bar Hand Blender with Whisk, Jug and Chopper (Kitchen & Home)
Purchased for chopping and pulsing primarily. Comes in very handy as it's quick and easy. Have chopped veggies quickly and pulsed ingredients to make up burgers/meatballs/sauces.
The unit did stop working while pulsing but, reading on the Phillips website, there is an overheat cut-off inside the unit that should activate if the unit is over-working. The advice is to leave the unit alone for 15 mins, I left it alone for 30 mins (as it still felt warm to touch after 15 mins), replaced the fuse in the plug as a precaution and it's working fine again.
