Cons: poor quality, Noisy
"Pros: Good build quality, looks good, powerful motor, sharp blades
Cons: Lack of clarity in the instruction booklet
This appliance has a solid, secure base and is heavy-duty which makes blending and crushing much easier.
It can be used either as an ordinary blender, or a steamer, or both.
It can also be used for making and blending soups, purees, desserts, and even crushed ice, i.e. anything a blender is required to do.
What makes this appliance unique is the steamer function which makes it easier to prepare healthy meal and preserve the nutrients.
The appliance comes with a removable stainless steel wire basket for placing food for steaming. It has a good 2l capacity to feed a family of 4 and contribute to healthy eating. Making nutritious homemade meals has never been made so easy and fun..
Whilst it does not come with step by step instructions, it’s very easy to use once you figure it out. I was unsure as to how to remove the jug after cooking. I realised that there was no release mechanism and you simply have to pull straight up whilst firmly gripping the handle.
The steamer and the blender make some loud weird sounding noises which may take getting used to.
The steam generation function has a separate control switch from the blending function and allows to switch from one function to another. The steam generator has a LED digital timer which can be set from 1 to 30 minutes and switches off automatically.
The blender has 4 speed settings, going from slow to very fast, as well as a pulse speed which lasts as long as you keep a finger on the knob.
The blender has six very sharp blades set at different angles for quick thorough cutting action. The only downside is that they are set and fixed in the jug base unit which make them difficult to clean.
The heat resistant glass jug, fits into a plastic base unit, made of a special non-stick material. However it doesn’t have a bottom and seals via a soft nylon ring, unscrews from the plastic base unit which makes making the cleaning much easier.
The overall impression is that this blender is very well built, has adequate power, and is likely to last for quite a few years."
