Do not buy

  • Summary: Shocking product. Wouldn't blend with ice and the Blades broke within the first 3 weeks of using it and I only used it for fruit smoothies. Would not recommend!!

Good when it works!!

Mat, Amazon
30 March 2014
  • 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. Still not a year old and I only use it once a day - clearly not made to last.

Disappointing product

Sarahmc27, Debenhams
23 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to make smoothies with but on the three occasions I've tried to use it, it's taken a good 5 minutes and several shakes and stirs by hand to get it to blend all the ingredients. The pulse doesn't shake things up at all and its really quite hard work to make a blended drink, which should be easy. If I hadn't chucked out the box I'd send it back. Really disappointed in it.

Awful

Alex, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • 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.

Ice crushing very poor

Helenbee, Argos
24 September 2013
  • 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.

Smelly plastic jug

disappointed customer, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • 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.

Plastic smell

cjmurphy, Amazon
3 July 2013
  • 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!
