Summary: I was slightly cautious purchasing the item, as my previous blender of a different brand gave up very quickly. However, this blender is ideal, it does everything that's expected. The only downside is the fact that you cannot achieve completely smooth smoothies, but that's expected with 600 Watt power. I do recommend it.
Excerpt: This is a great product , it's nice and simple, does the job. Very easy to understand with an easy dial in the middle. I paid around 25 pounds for this item and I have been really happy with it, I have had it for around a year now and havent had an issue with it so far. It is also easy to wash up with not many parts because I know that's an issue for some people where others are difficult to get to the small parts.
Summary: Had it for £35, working more than fine. Easy to use, however make sure to put only small pieces, otherwise the blender will have trouble to process fruits/veg... Once you're done with it you can store jug in fridge with no issue. Can make about 2L of drinks/soups...
Summary: Have used it to make soups a couple of times. Had a little trouble fitting the jug on to base at first but once I found the knack it works perfectly. Would have preferred glass jug but for the money quite good value.
