Excerpt: I bought this blender as a replacement for the James Martin glass blender and I'm so happy I did! This design is much more ergonomic. I don't mind plastic over glass as I can actually lock and unlock the jug from the base. The lid clicks in and does not open when pouring.
Excerpt: I snapped the handle off my previous blender so looked for new one this one is not too bulky doesn't take up loads of space looks great and very simple to use is not too noisy and quick to clean great item def recommend I looked at all the reviews and was a little put off by some but decided it was...
Summary: Brilliant....so far...I have had troubles with blenders, they do not seem to last long, I have no idea why, maybe its because they only get intermittent use and when in use they get a pounding but this unit works well, its powerful, reasonably quiet is dishwasher safe, if you choose to be that lazy.
Excerpt: This is a very strong sturdy blender..... I have tried at least five different ones and have always taken them back being faulty within the year guarantee. Fingers crossed with this Phillips one I haven't ....... I am very pleased with this blender and use it most days.
Philips customer service were super friendly and helpful

Summary: I'm a shake junky and use this blender daily sometimes more for salad dressings and pasta sauces. two really key things that make this a 5* purchase; 1. The jug is plastic so far less likely to break.
