Good points

  • Very good overall.
  • Very good for performance.
  • Easy to use.
  • Good for green smoothie.
  • Excellent result for crushing ice using the pulverising blade.
  • Good result for blending kale.
  • Excellent for frozen fruit smoothie.
  • Easy to assemble.
  • All parts dishwasher safe except blade assembly.
  • Has small jar for chopping.

But

  • Food can become jammed at the top during processing and needs to be manipulated.
  • Can be difficult to remove blade assembly from cup as it becomes tighter after processing. There's limited grip on the blade assembly to remove it so it's difficult for people with weak wrists and fingers.
  • No suction feet and top heavy so can be knocked over.
