Planned Obsolescence

J. Knight, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: Most blenders have a nylon sleeve beneath the cutting blade which, depending on what's being ground/blended, will get hot and melt, requiring a replacement blade. And the blades for this are TWENTY FIVE POUNDS. :-O Yes, thats £25; 36.76 Mars Bars. It's cheaper to get a fifteen quid blender from Asda - three years old, used every day and still going strong.

bit disappointed

  • Summary: This works fine but there must be a way of removing the blade section for cleaning which I haven't found yet. The jug itself seems flimsy. I think my friends Kenwood blender is more efficient, sturdier & easy to clean, so I am a bit disappointed.

A competent blender

Pensioner John, Argos
17 January 2013
  • Summary: A replacement for an elderly failed blender. This was bought with limited research. The removable chopper blade makes cleaning dramatically quicker and more effective. However do make sure that it is fitted tightly when replacing as I did have a leak, which is obviously planned for as there is a channel to carry spilt liquid away! Slightly noisy but is effective at blending smoothies as long as you chop the ingredients fairly finely. Also has been used for soups.

Smelly

K. Rodgerson, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: Please Amazon, take one of these out of it's box and smell it. It smells of burnt eletrical wiring inside the jug and all round the motor. This is the second one you've sent me as the first had the same issue. It smells as though it's going to catch fire. all they all like this? Please report it to Philips, I would like to send it back as it's obviously not right.

not what we wanted

tiga, Argos
17 April 2012
  • Summary: we wanted a blender to replace the blender associated with our kenwood chef as we only use the chef for blending.The phillips was too big for our needs & not of comparable quality to the blender with our kenwood chef which we will continue using.We returned it without trying it.
