Breville IBL044 Review
Member Name: mwella
Advantages: Light weight, easy to clean
Disadvantages: cord is short, a bit noisy at high speeds
You do not use a blender very frequently at home but when the need arrives you should have the best. With dimensions 37.5 x 31.6 x 19.6 this particular model falls into medium size blender. Being both the base and the jug are plastic the blender comes as a lightweight kitchen appliance. Maximum capacity of the plastic jug is 5 litres. You get appropriate measurement markings on the jug. The base has a pulse function button and a black speed dial on the front.
However I notice that the plugging wire of the blender is quite short. Cord storage at the back of the base is a nice feature as it is handy when you want to carry it. You don't have to drag the cord. There are three blending speeds available and has an ice crushing feature too. One problem is that the working noise increases as you go up the speeds. It's easy to clean the blender. The stainless steel blades (they have a double action - cuts horizontally as well as vertically) can easily be removed, cleaned and put back. It is a good blender that is recommended for a small family.
Summary: Good product for a small family
