it makes a poor quality smoothie unless you like lumps of un-blended fruit ...
on 11 June 2016
BARELY FIT FOR PURPOSE
1.) Firstly, if you only intend to make smoothies using soft fruit then this may work for you. If you intend to use frozen fruit, there is no chance it is going to work. Ice is completely out of the question.
2.) Anything harder than bananas/berries is impossible for this blender. It is incapable of blending apples/carrots/pears despite the description saying it is able to so beware.
3.) Even for soft fruit, it makes a poor quality smoothie unless you like lumps of un-blended fruit in yours.
4.) This is stated in the manual but not on the product description on Amazon (intentionally?) - NONE of the parts are dishwasher safe
5.) I am unsure if this affects other units but my blender's base has twice become loose whilst being use. This has caused liquid to leak out form underneath the blades into the main unit itself. Whilst it has not yet short-circuited, this is REALLY DANGEROUS and may potentially electrocute you so beware!
In short, definitely would not recommend and would return mine for a refund first thing if I still could. Go for other brands!
