Excerpt: Be aware before you buy its all plastic including the jug. Initially i thought this may be an issue but so far after a months use the blender has done all i asked of it which is mainly smoothies. Having an "ice" mode on the blender seems pointless as it does nothing different to the ice than any of the other speed settings do, dont see the point of advertising it as a function or feature.
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.
Excerpt: 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.
