Good points

  • Excellent results in our soup-pureeing test.
  • Controls are OK to use.
  • Blades are removable.

But

  • Poor results in our ice-crushing test.
  • Poor results in our carrot-chopping test.
  • 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).
  • Blade housing sits too high in jug so food can become trapped.
  • Not dishwasher safe.

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.
