Good points

  • Excellent results in our soup-pureeing test.
  • Excellent results in our ice-crushing test.
  • Excellent results in our carrot-chopping test.
  • Controls are very easy to use with indicator light.
  • Blades are removable.
  • Has pre-programmed smoothie function.
  • Comes with single serve plastic bottle (blend and drink in same bottle).
  • Dishwasher safe (top shelf only).

But

  • Poor results in our green smoothie test.
  • Extremely poor results in our kale test.
  • Heavy glass jug.
  • Jug is large (so can be difficult to wash in a domestic sink).
  • Unit can jolt on the bench.
  • Blade housing sits too high in jug so food can become trapped.

How we test

Overall score includes:

Pureeing, crushing, chopping, green smoothie, blending kale (60%) – regular blenders.
Pureeing, crushing, chopping, green smoothie, blending kale, nut butter, sorbet (60%) – super blenders.
Ease of use (40%)

For our tests we pureed soft frozen fruit (some older models pureed soup), crushed ice and chopped carrots. We made a green smoothie (a combination of English spinach, pear, kiwifruit, cucumber, mint, celery and water) and blended kale. For super blenders we also made nut butter, sorbet from frozen fruit, dough and almond meal, and grated parmesan. In the latest batch of super blenders we made hot soup from raw ingredients. The dough, parmesan, dry milling and soup scores don’t contribute to the overall score. We measured noise blending kale on the highest setting.
