i decided to treat myself to this blender as it was in the sale for £50 last year in currys. my first impressions of this product were well branded, with jamie oliver covering the whole of the box using the blender in the photo. it was very well damaged so i was confident it wouldnt have been damaged during travel at any time, it was packed will with polystyrene and covered with a plastic bag to keep it from getting dirty or ducty. the blender itself is very solid and quite on the heavy side but this does not really matter as you would not be carrying it around all the time, being heavy is also a bonus as this makes it very stable when blending as it stands firm. the blender looks very stylish with a brushed stinless steel finish on the base of the unit and a think glass jug. it is very easy to use with one simple dial to select all the differnet options.
i like making smoothies and this is perfect for this, i buy the frozen mmixtures so obviously when putting them into the blender they are rock solid and clumped together, withint a few blasts on the slow setting this breaks them up and started to blend them together and creates the smoothie within a few seconds on full blend.
the liquid stays in side the jog at all times even when filling to the max level, it is very well sealed with a rubber bung and i have never had any leakages.
the cleaning of this product is slightly fidderly due to the blades, however i have started to take these out (very simply and easy to do, just twist and pull) and put them into the dishwasher which seems to work fine and makes it alot easier than spending time trying to get every last bit out of the cracks your self.
overall the blender is brilliant and blends effortlessly through any type of food, liquid or solid alike.
Summary: excellent gadget for the kitchen, a must buy!!!
