Summary: I use this most days in order to make smoothies for my family. It purée's most vegetables and fruit with easy, I did try using coconut in my smoothie, but it was still fairly thick and had the standard coconut texture.
I use it every day for smoothies and it is also great for chopping herbs & making breadcrumbs

Summary: This is my third smoothie 2 go. I have now got it in black to match the new kettle & toaster. There is nothing wrong with the other machines - I just keep dropping the jugs and on a stone floor they don't fare too well.
Summary: This smoothie maker is just what i needed. He came the next day after order well packed. It is so convenient as you can drink it on the go & extra handy that you have 2 travel mugs, where in Argos they only do the 1 travel mug & it is more expensive.
Summary: Great unit works very well and maKes great smoothies even with ice cubes included. Suggestion be careful fitting the unit together the retaining lugs look a bit easy to bend or break. I have not had this problem but I have treated it with respect. Just a feeling about it. Great Unit recommended.
Summary: A fantastic smoothie maker. I had an older Kenwood Smoothie maker for about 10 years, which worked fine. I replaced it with this one for the following reasons: 1) Stylish compact design - looks great in my kitchen 2) Much easier to clean.
Summary: As others have mentioned, don't try to run it at high speed for more than 20 seconds or so or the smell of overheating motor windings will become apparent. The switch as also mentioned is a bit flimsy and cheap/plasticy looking.
Summary: My wife and I have been making smoothies for many years now. We've used several different products over this time and nothing beats this model!! (Not even close). Very fast, absolutely no mess, no cleaning necessary. I have read other reviews about the product not being very robust.
