The jug is not heatproof - failed after 8 months

Mark, Argos
1 week ago
  • Excerpt: 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.

Not good for frozen veg

Benzo, Amazon
7 September 2014
  • Summary: Not up to blending up frozen veg so wouldn't buy if you do this like me to make a vegetable smoothie. Fine for softer produce but no good for too many frozen goods as blades break.

Would not buy

inflames, Amazon
1 September 2014
  • Summary: It stinks of burnt plastic and it seems to only blend for 10seconds (when making puréed food) and then as soon as there's an air hole it stops completely and can't get it to work again. It's a nightmare. Worst buy ever. You would expect a blender to blend. This does not. Annoyed beyond belief.

  • 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.

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.

Makes food taste of plastic

Nikki, Amazon
30 November 2013
  • Summary: Using this to blend baby food, and it makes every portion taste of plastic. Not just a bit; to the point that it smells and tastes more of chemicals than the food and is totally inedible.

Ice crushing very poor

Helenbee, Argos
24 September 2013
  • Excerpt: 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.
