Aura Hand BlenderWas so pleased on opening the box how easy this product was to assemble. The white body is quite sturdy but feels comfy in your hand the settings on top of the blender is useful to. The 0.5 jug is just the size to make your smoothie or purees or even babies first meals lump free .When finished it's easy to clean with it's stainless steel leg and blade or you can just put it in the dishwasher for ease. I do feel this product is value for money and would recommend it.

Variable Speed is the future!I have had a number of stick blenders over the years and I find the ease of using them to make soup or smoothie, for example, a real benefit. However, they have all had 1 or 2 speeds. This product tempted me with the variable speed, it was not something I had seen before.
As someone who is always on a diet, or at least that is how it feels (!) I have always found stick blenders to be a great kitchen aid for healthier food. Soups make for a great meal, quick to make especially when you can whip out your stick blender. Having said that, how many times have I been too eager to blend and I have ended up creating a vortex of boiling liquid that is propelled over the sides of the jug and I end up burning myself?! The option of variable speed allows me to blend without causing bodily harm while still blending well.
When making a smoothie however, sometimes you need more power, especially if you add a cube or two of ice to really wake you up of a morning, it handles the ice no problem.
The cable is a good length and being able to pop the detachable whisk in the dishwasher is a boon.
The jug the blender comes with is a good size of easy storage.
Would recommend this blender to all

Handy BlenderThis is a very handy blender to have in the kitchen cupboard. It is in two parts which fit together easily. It has a stainless steel blade and looks very professional. The speed control is on the top of the handle. It comes with a 500 ml beaker which is extremely handy for making sauces, soups and baby foods. The only drawback for me is that it is quite heavy. On the whole I would definitely recommend this product.
