As a smoothie and soup lover i have always struggled to find the perfect blender (within my budget ) my friend recommended me this one as you can put hot liquids in it so i thought i would try it for myself . I was lucky enough to find one on offer and reserve one at my local Argos store.
when my blender arrived i was surprised by the good quality and finish of this item - With a decent 2 litre sized glass jug , and plastic high gloss black body ( but i think its good quality ) with silver variable speed controls (12 from min to max ),also there is smoothie , pulse and ice crushing option as an added bonus it comes with a fruit filter for clear juice without seeds and pips ( that i haven't used as yet) .also it has an integrated cord storage section at the bottom of the base itself and "suckers" - so it wont move from your worktop. The blades appear to be good quality there are 4 of them. The blender comes with an instruction manual that is clear and easy to follow .
To put it to the test i put loads of ice in it to crush it into tiny pieces for my milkshake - The blender crushed the ice in a matter of seconds ,next it was time for the milkshake - and this came out beautifully , same with soups - it blends hot liquids nice without problems . It is very easy to attach and remove the glass jug from its base.
I find the controls very easy to use,The smoothie option is an added bonus and the blender can cope with frozen fruit ,as well as fresh, and what's more important the jug washes easily . The base of the jug unscrews so you can wash the blades and rubber seal separately, although it cleans pretty well without taking it apart anyway. The high gloss body is finger mark resistant.
Noise wise - i would say it isn't disturbing ,and is comparable to other brands on the market (all depends what you are crushing ) . I use this product on a daily basis and i don't have any problems with it . i like the fact that it comes with a 2 year warranty All in all, a quality product for a good price.
