Advantages: Good looks and settings/controls.
Disadvantages: Poor performance, pulsation only useful function.
Blenders are very useful kitchen appliances and can be used to chop up a variety of soft and medium resistant ingredients for cooking or eating straight away. They are commonly used to make 'smoothies' and other fruit related drinks, as the juices and soft texture of certain fruits break down quickly into a thick liquid substance of strong flavour. There are many different models of blender on the crowded market it exists, and this one by Sabichi can be bought for around £25.00 (www.argos.co.uk) and is therefore at the bottom end of the price-range for the product type. The '94414 1.5 Litre Table Blender' is a simple device with a few simple functions for the blendering of ingredients.
The technical and functional specification of the Sabichi model is moderate - A 500 Watt motor, Variable speed settings, stainless steel blades, 1.5 litre detachable jug, and accessory: herb gripper. The machine also has the ability to perform a 'pulse' action for the chopping up of specific ingredients or to achieve a specific consistency required. Everyone has a different end product in mind when using the device, and this machine helps you to achieve that reality in a decent manner. However, there are more technically gifted products on the market which perform the blending function with a greater level of ability.
This device doesn't perform as well as it should given the specification and the looks of the product. I like how it looks to be honest, it looks as though it would fit into most kitchen settings, and it certainly fits into mine. A dile on the front can be twisted to change the device between its four settings. I like the look of the controls and feel they work well. The fact is however, the stainless steel blades within don't chop up food as well as they should and you have to activate the machine for longer than normal. The pulsation setting works best out of all the settings, and to be honest the slowest functions aren't needed at all, I've never used them or needed to use them when preparing food.
Overall I believe this blender should perform better than it does, and I've heard similar opinions from other un-bias people. If you want to spend 20-30 quid on a blender, look around and I'm sure you'll find something better than this for sure! Not a recommended product !
Summary: Look around before you flash your cash!
