Good points

  • OK overall.
  • OK for performance.
  • Easy to use.
  • OK result for green smoothie.
  • Very good result for crushing ice using the pulverising blade.
  • Very good for frozen fruit smoothie.
  • Easy to assemble.
  • All parts dishwasher safe except blade assembly.
  • Includes a jug.

But

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