Rated 4 out of 5 by Titus Excellent service
This is the second identical model we have bought so we clearly like it. It is inexpensive and does all we require.
The second one developed a split in the jug. When I phoned Philips to check whether it was still under guarantee the operator not only confirmed it was (due to its serial number) but immediately arranged for a replacement jug to be sent. One can't expect better service than that.
(Unfortunatly the story hasn't a happy ending. When my wife went to use the new jug she discovered that the jug and the blades in its base are two separate parts and by that time she had thrown away the old jug complete with blades!)

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jules54321 Badly designed handle.
I have this blender that my sister bought me for Christmas and It has only been used about 30 times so far. Then the handle came off the jug and the jug smashed to the floor and the contents went everywhere. So at 10 o'clock at night I end up mopping the Kitchen floor, no fun. When I looked at the jug it was almost as if it was designed to break. The handle slots down not up onto the jug at the top so all the weight is supported at the bottom. The bottom is held in by a tiny screw through a small bit of plastic and this small bit of plastic broke. I don't understand why its constructed this way and I am very disappointed that a company with such a good name would cut corners like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CD2001 Great blender
I could not imagine going for a normal unit that does not have the storage design of this one again. As for blending the soups and smoothies so far have been great :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by Carl16 Don't use frozen fruits.
I tried putting a frozen banana in it and a plastic piece that spins the blades shattered instantly. It was completely useless after that and I had to return it and get a better blender.

Bought for making Soups. It does exactly what it is advertised to do. Speedy and reasonably quiet.. Easy to use.Storage with inverted lid ideal for limited space. Nice large jug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vish Convenient Compact Blender
Easy to use, sturdy, easy to store. Would be nice to have at least one other blade - a bigger one - for tougher grinding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by smurfnorfolk good product, well built
great design, stores well with it's space saving designs, but still convenient to use. A
more powerful motor might be useful, although I've had no concern so far
