Summary: I bought this blender to make coconut milk using finely sliced coconut flesh and boiling water. The jug started developing fine fractures at it's base after 3 months and those fractures have become cracks that leak after a further 5 months.
Summary: Purchased this under a year ago. The jug keeps developing a leak at its connection point with the machine rendering it useless. When it first went, I purchased a replacement from a site and it didn't fit. Philips then replaced it for free and it has now gone again.
Summary: I bought this to crush ice for a cocktail party, but gave up almost immediately. It pulveristed some of the ice into a soft instantly melting mush and left the rest in big cubes. I had to use my old manual crusher. Seems alright as a standard blender but no good for ice crusing.
Summary: Wish I had read more reviews on this product before buying, but you expect a blender to work just like a blender should. Well in fact it does, it works great but there is a plastic smell coming from it that is so strong you can taste it in your food.
Summary: Avoid purchase ! It leaves smelling of plastic ! Just awful ! ... I expected much more from philips , but unfortunately this blender destroyed all my imaginations about this brand ! ... That's shame !
Summary: I had to take this blender back. The plastic jug smealt so strongly of plastic that when you made a smoothie in it the drink tasted funny. I tried all sorts of things to try and get rid of the smell but nothing worked.
