Powerful blender that ticks all the boxes.
on 23 June 2013
This is my first ever blender so it's difficult to compare to others. However, this one has easily dealt with everything I've thrown at it.
The blender feel like it's made of real quality. It's SO easy to clean, we always clean it under hot water after every use (we use it everyday), and it takes no more than 1 minute to completely clean.
The blender has 4 different modes:
1) You just twist the dial and it varies the speed to your choice.
2) Ice crush - this pulses the blades on and off every second or so until you either switch it off or it will time out after a specified time (maybe 30 sec).
3) Smoothie maker - This starts slowly and gradually increases the speed of the blades up to it's maximum and will time out after 60 seconds.
4) Pulsed mode - This will run continuously for as long as you hold the button. As soon as you let go, it will stop. Apparently this can also be used for cleaning when filled with water but I find it much quicker to rinse it under the hot tap.
The blender has blend everything I've thrown at it into tiny tiny tiny bits that make a smooth drink every time. I love the ice crush function and the smoothie maker function, as I tend to use these the most. It does come with a spatula to push things down, while it's running I presume. The spatula has been designed so that it cannot reach the rotating blades, so there's no fear of going to far. However, I practically never use the spatula because the off-center blades with their special shape/design (as described in the manual) always ensue the contents is thoroughly mixed and nothing is missed.
I chose this product because it was the newer model of a Which? best buy product and I'm over the moon with it. I'd definitely recommend this blender, you won't be disappointed.
