Summary: Awful purchase! These are the problems I have: 1. The blender gives off a pungent chemical smell. You can see gas seeping out the base. 2. The food/drink tastes contaminated afterwards, like plastic. 3. The blender leaks from the top even when properly secured.
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. Doesn't come with any attachments, very basic for the price.
Summary: The blender worked well and did crush about 6-8 ice cubes at a time - but - there is a strong chemically smell from the jug which in the photo appears to be fairly clear, mine is a blue/purple colour. I thought the smell was because the product was new and so have used it a few times. The smell has not gone and so for this reason only I am disappointed.
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. This smell cannot be got rid of, have put in dishwasher numerous times and also cleaned it by hand many times but it still stinks!
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: after making my first frappucino it tasted vile!! the plastic smell thats on the jug you can smell and taste it in the smoothie and frappucino i was nearly sick!!! washed it numerous times and still you can taste and smell it its very overpowering! wish id have never bought it especially from this buyer as you cant even contact them! absolute disgrace!
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.
