About this deal

I have it only 6 weeks and have used it about 25-30 times probably, but always with liquid, nothing hard.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I have been using it for almost 2 years now- mainly for milkshakes and smoothies but also for grinding nuts and spices- and this blender does a great job. Both of the blades work well, however I have found that nuts do not grind very well, I was left with a stodge, the blade is not sharp enough to cope with oily nuts. Secondly I can't find any replacement seals and having used all the original spares one of my attachments is now sitting in-used until I can.My first one broke in a couple of days, blending ONLY smoothies, it suddenly went insane, and blended the little rubber seal on the top of the blade, INTO MY DRINK. I also use this for smoothies and mixing up protein shakes which taste much better (really nice and smooth and creamy) than using one of those hand shakers. It also doesn't tend to work for anything thick, I tried to blend fondant icing and it refusing, outright, to do so, so really it only works with drinkable things and some thin sauces.

The other day I tried the chopping blade with cashews and yoghurt and all I heard was a bunch of horrible grinding noises and then the blade stopped. The filter in the juicer jug is a fine mesh but is not very good at separating the juice from the mulch, so instead of a nice smooth juice drink I get a wet mulch.Compact, lightweight and dishwasher-safe, with microwave-safe cups, it makes cooking quick and easy, and can peel, chop, grind, mix, blend and whip! To serve this I pour the now 'beautifully smooth' porridge into a breakfast bowl, sprinkle some further oatbran on the top and finish the ensemble with a drizzle of delicious honey. The reasons being that now I can stir my porridge into the lukewarm milk in the saucepan, add some organic oatbran, transfer the whole lot to my 'Genie' and with just three short bursts of blending everything has worked wonderfully and there isn't a sign of any lumps or bumps at all. I've enjoyed my 'Genie' every day since it arrived and would be pleased to recommend it to anyone considering purchasing a blender for a single person or perhaps a couple. Sadly I am constantly checking whether the seal is still present before I drink anything - no blended rubber for me!

After transferring everything back to the saucepan, replacing on the hob and bringing to the boil (stirring 'gently' all the time) breakfast is ready to be served. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). I bought this because I've seen the TV ads for the magic bullet but couldn't justify the cost for something I wasn't sure I'd use, so was delighted to see this budget version. This was until I bought my Hinari 'Genie' blender, after which thankfully my breakfast scenario changed forever. Some reviewers have noticed the rubber seals breaking up but I have had no problems, the original seal is still in good condition and I have had no leaks.Overall I think it's okay, but if you expect more than what I have written above, you might want to invest in a more expensive blender with various attachments, especially if you plan to use it daily - this one would last you a month tops then.

As a result, we recommend that you always read the label carefully before using or consuming any products. I don't think it would be ideal for a large family but if you're on your own and would like to spoil yourself you could always try the above recipe - go on, treat yourself . This clever appliance comprised of 15 pieces is all you need for a number of everyday food preparation processes. Other smashing recipes include delicious smoothies and beautifully scrambled eggs, all prepared in just seconds. Under the blades are hard rubber notches that fit with plastic notches on the machine to spin the blade.It does its job, but when you are making fruit or veg smoothies you really have to make sure to precut them or you WILL get lumps. With a high torque 250W motor and 2 stainless steel blades, the Kitchen Genie 8-in-1 Blender can blend just about anything in a matter of seconds. I love this little appliance, it is perfect for making smoothies and drinking them right from the cup. I am writing this review months after purchase; during this time I have used the Hinari blender numerous times.
