4.0 out of 5 stars Nice product for the price, 7 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips Avance Glass Jar Blender with Spatula, 800 Watt (Kitchen & Home)
I am happy with all aspects of this product except from the fact that the motor struggles with the more demanding blends.
I use frozen fruit for my summer smoothies. When those are mixed with enough fresh juice (apple, orange) then all is good. Reduce the juice quantity and you are stuck.
Having read quite a few reviews for domestic blenders which mentioned dying motors (to be fair these were reviews for competing machines and not the Philips) a stuck struggling motor just adds unnecessary stress in what should be a fun experience.
I am assuming that this would not be the case if you went with one of the prosumer machines like the vitamix or the blendtec. Having said all that, those machines cost two or three times more.

Pros:
Build quality
Easy to clean
Consistent results
Useful controls
Nice looks
Reasonably priced

Cons:
Motor struggles during tougher blends (frozen fruit)

The Blendtec leaks at he base , I have seen it with my own eyes, and it costs about 6x the price of this one, so don't feel so bad.

I don't think there is a perfect blender !
