Rated 5 out of 5 by studapples Start with superb and work upwards
I bought this item on impulse as I've been looking for a liquidiser for some time and for the price, that part of it alone was excellent value compared to others I've seen.
Unpacking it I couldn't believe the uses it could be put to. Pulling them from the box there seemed to be an endless stream of apparatus converting it into a kitchen utility unsurpassed in my limited experience.
Copious amounts of spare containers with accompanying lids were also supplied for storage for future use as well.
I know this sounds like a very cheesey advert but I genuinely think it'd still be excellent value at double the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by philtaylorphoto An extra 9th bonus feature.
Bought this to blend ingredients for lamb kebabs. It survived making a puree of a 1 inch cube of ginger half a green pepper, a handful of coriander and two teaspoons of spice. The addition of a small quantity of lamb mince revealed a 9th function in addition to the 8 mentioned on the box, it can double duty as a smoke generator.. Not having a disco or heavy metal concert planned for my kitchen that evening I unplugged it, and returned it to the store for a full refund. The lack of an on off switch, and the lack of a safety feature that prevents you putting a hand inside whilst the blades are turning is dangerous. Save your money, and potentially your fingers and buy something better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katastrophe An excellent blender for the price
Bought this after the last blender literally went up in flames. Am a smoothie addict, so couldn't go too long without one! The fact that you can make a few different ones and store them in the little glasses you make them in is excellent! I also like the fact that there is less washing up- make it in the same container you drink it out of. The juicer isn't as good, but I must admit I only bought it for blending, and that was an added extra. The two different blades work for all combos. I am very happy with this purchase, and ordering it via the 'pick up in store' it was there very quickly too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SmoothieGirl Does what is says!
This is an occasional use gadget when I don't need the size of and can't pack my Vitamix, but need to know I can make healthy green protein smoothies for myself
Ie when away / in hospital probably about 5 - 6 days a month or more!!
I totally agree with reviewer saying to use in short bursts, it also makes it much more difficult to open which is not great in hospital
Never use as a juicer it's a disaster not a blender !
I just take both blades and two "cups"
Make smoothies and "puddings" to all around me amusement
If you need more durability go look at more expensive JML magic bullet and Tribest hand blender
If you need to randomly get the job done do it with a Genie! Not 5/5 because I don't use enough!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Froggy1 Great value for money
For the incredibly low price you get a lot in this package. Have used for making smoothies, pesto, breadcrumbs, chopping onions and juicing apples, kiwi and other fruit. The juicer didn't work terribly well as it didn't catch the pulp so it was more like blended apple and kiwi and had to be watered down. Having said that, it is still fantastic value for money. I love the fact that it sits unobtrusively on my worktop matching the kitchen decor. My daughter makes smoothies regularly now as it's so easy and quick. Very powerful too. I only hope it lasts a decent amount of time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GCRT Worth more than what we payed
Just bought this all in one blender for our tiny apartment. Probably one of the best purcheses we've made so far. We've used it almost everyday since we've had it for one thing or another. Makes great smoothies and blends different herbs and spices for dinner. Totally worth every penny. We didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for a blender because we're moving out in December, and might not be able to take the blender with us. I would only use it to pulse things, but it only takes you an extra minute rather than burning out the motor. Very happy customer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by birdy1980 A good product
Dont be put off by the brand. Its a very good product at a smart price. Lots of attachments as well. I have ground hard stuff,made pastes,smoothies etc in it.
The only thing to be aware of is not run it for more than a minute in one go. 10 second breaks in between are sufficient for cooling down. Please ensure the lid is tightly screwed before use else it can leak.Also sometimes the smell of burnt rubber accompanies the grinding operation but seems to be a trivial issue.
Not found anything wrong with it yet and for the price, you wont get something better.

I use this nearly everyday. It makes juice, soup, pasta sauce, salsa and that's just for starters. It's super sleek and comes with a tonne of accessories for the price.
