Love love love it! I got given some Amazon vouchers at work in April and I bought this blender, I've used it everyday since without fail. It's so handy and I love that you can make your drink and just drink it straight away with no washing up until you're done!
I have two issues with it, one is that it's annoying if you want to make more than one bottle - but then I have a larger blender for that, and secondly, on occasion I'll put everything in, and the button won't work to start the blender. I've looked at reviews online and some people say they've had to return their blenders due to this, but I haven't yet, it's usually been fine a couple of hours later which I find completely bizarre!
I've found that the best way to clean the bottles is to add water and washing up liquid at the end of the drink and blend it again, gets right into the bottom and only requires rinsing out at the end.
I honestly would be lost without this blender, however weird that sounds, it's also made me more willing to exercise because it's a handy size to take a smoothie with me (Water is not nearly as exciting!) and 3 friends have bought one since using mine. Unfortunately it's only useful for one person at a time but with it's price and convenience I don't think this is too big of an issue. It's also quieter than my large blender which is a plus!
I've had this blender for a few weeks and I absolutely love it. To begin with, it's compact. As a 'mini-blender' it fits nicely on the work surface (bigger blenders take up too much space)and leaves lots of space for other appliances. The only slight problem with this is the bottles - mine came with 4 and I have to keep them in the cupboard because they would take up too much room. The bottles are an excellent idea. Not only do you save on washing up because you can use the same one to blend in as to drink (and just chuck them in the dishwasher when you've finished with it), but the come with secure lids so you can make smoothies in advance and take them with you if you're on the move or won't have time later. The bottles are a good size as well, because you can half fill them for one portion or make a larger (or multiple at once) - it's up to you.
In terms of blending materials, this can cope with all fruit and veg, and even ice (if in smallish pieces). I'd like to use mine to make almond butter as well, but I don't think its quite strong enough for that. However its absolutely perfect for a simple daily smoothie.
The only slight issue I could have with it is the slight smell of hot plastic I sometimes get when using it. I know others have noticed this, but so far aside from an interesting aroma it has caused me no problems.
Other than this, it's brilliant and makes delicious and smooth drinks!
This blender is particularly great for making smoothies and juices as the plastic container converts into a bottle. The product looks classy, is safe to use and is well worth the money.
My only criticism of this product is that it is sometimes difficult to clean inside the bottle.
Since buying this revile blender I have used it every morning to make a delicious energising smoothie/milkshake for breakfast (and sometime a cheeky chocolate ice-cream milkshake on an evening!). It blends quickly and easily handles ice and frozen berries/fruit chunks.
A huge benefit is the limited washing up to do- just the blade and the bottle. I rinse the blade immediately under the tap to clean it and then either rinse the bottle out immediately after using, or put it in the dishwasher if I haven't been able to.
I have always drunk straight out of the bottle both when I have drank the smoothie at home or taken it with me on the go.
It does not take up too much space on the counter and I leave it out since I used it once and sometimes twice a day!
You simply place the fruit and liquid in the bottle, attach the blades to the top, place on the blender, then press the button, after less than a minute untwist and remove the bottle/blades, swap the blade attachment for a bottle lid and you're ready to go!
I bought mine from Tesco and used the clubcard exchange promotion so mine was only a few pounds! (Also make sure you click and collect to save money on the delivery- I hate paying for that!).
I wholeheartedly recommend this product to you if you are interested in having smoothies/milkshakes and getting more vitamins in to your diet. Also there is no doubt that I will be treating my family and friends to this at Christmas!
This blender is great for making smoothies and other blended drinks. To use you simply feel the bottle with whatever ingredients you like screw the blade on, place on blender and hold button down for approximately 30seconds. You then take the bottle off and swap the blade for a lid and that is it, you have a perfectly blended drink perfect to drink on the go or from the comfort of your home! Because the drink is made inside the bottle it means there is minimal cleaning required. The only downside to this bottle is I have found when blending certain seedy fruits such as raspberries and strawberries I have had difficulties removing them all from the bottle. One method I have been using to get round this is to use a toothbrush as its thin enough to get inside the bottle. Another great feature of this blender is that it has no issues with blending ice and can also be used as a normal blender to blend other products such as onions etc. as I am a student I find this particularly useful as I don't want to have to purchase to muck kitchen essentials. This blender is reasonably priced at around £24.99 and Is useful in many other circumstances other than just making smoothies. It is also relatively lightweight and compact so can be easily stored in the cupboard. At the same time the blender also has a sleek and modern look to it so is also suitable to be left on the side in the kitchen.
Great item, just chuck everything in and blend. Easy to use and less cleaning involved! very cheap considering you get two bottles included. I live in a flat and I always worried that my old blender would wake up half the building but this one is very quite.
We just bought this blender in our flat at uni and we love it!! It does the same job as the nutribullet but for a mere fraction of the price! We haven't yet found anything you cannot put in it or that it will not blend with ease. We mainly use it for blending fruits for juices and smoothies and it fills this purpose excellently. It's very small and lightweight and therefore does not take up a load of bench space and the fact that you can use the bottle you blend it in to drink it from too is brilliant and efficient. Practically every part of it including both the bottles and blades can go in the dishwasher meaning it is easy to clean however cleaning by hand can be difficult. Can also be used to blend things to make soup, milkshake a etc. doing a great job of all. Very user friendly, simply place blade lid onto bottle, twist onto blender, blend using the one and only button, them replace blades with bottle top and off you go! Never had it leak yet and although it has a very powerful moter it does not make that much noise. Very robust device perfect for anyone on diets including lots of smoothies, shakes, or soups or simerlally someone who is big on the gym to make their protein shakes tastier. Would make a great and not too expensive gift, especially for a health nut and when ordered off amazon came in great quick time!
