This is a great price for the family set with excellent reviews across the board.

The Breville Blend-active is a small, simple to use blender for all the family. I own this and a NutriBullet and have to say this generally gets more use. It's certainly not as powerful and that makes some tasks a bit too much for the Blend-Active but as a general day-to-day smoothie maker this is my go to appliance due to it's size & ease of use.

***** Advantages *****
-Very minimal design means it is very unobtrusive on the worktop (or equally easy to move in and out of the cupboard)
-The bottles are great (definitely prefer these to the NutriBullet). They come in small (300ml) & large (600ml) sizes - they are really strong and I've never experienced a leak, so I can confidently throw one in the bag. It's also more conveniently shaped to hold and drink than the NutriBullet cups.
-The bottles are BPA-free, durable, shatterproof and odour, taste and stain resistant.
-The kids seem to love it and can operate it (with supervision of course) easily (1 button operation). It's a great way to "sneak" some exta fruit (and some vegetables into their diet).
-It crushes ice easily enough
-The blades are easy to clean
-Great price
-Comes with a recipe booklet to get you started
-Reliable - user reviews across the board are excellent
Amazon 4.7/5 (1,849 reviews)
Revoo - 9.1 out of 10 based on 342 reviews
Argos - 4.8/5 (711 reviews)

***** Disadvantages *****
-300W motor is fine for fruits and soft vegetables (e.g. avocado) but doesn't work all that well on tough vegetables such as kale, it blends it partly but not smooth enough to enjoy.
-The larger bottles can be tricky to reach down to the bottom to clean it if you don't have a suitable cleaning brush).
-Extra bottles not readily available to purchase.

***** Delivery Options *****
Amazon - Free Next day delivery with Prime
Amazon - £1 Digital store credit for Standard delivery with Prime
Amazon - Free Standard delivery without Prime
Argos - Free store collection (depending on stock)
Argos - £3.95 named day delivery (including same day)

***** Box Contains *****
1 x Breville Blend-Active Family motor unit
2 x 600ml blending bottles with lids
2 x 300ml blending bottles with lids
1 x Instruction booklet with recipe ideas

***** Warranty *****
1 year manufacturer warranty

***** Summary *****
Overall I would definitely recommend this blender as an everyday blender for smoothies/shakes due to it's price, reliability and good design. If you are looking for something to blend vegetables mainly I would recommend getting something more powerful (Blend-active is 300W - I would recommend something 600W or above). I would also recommend the family pack over the personal version (only £3.99 more at the time of posting) as the extra bottles are very handy (as spares) and are not sold separately (they can be ordered directly from Breville but are expensive - £10 each not including delivery).

Thanks updated the title to let others know.
Also vouch for this, although I make milkshakes not smoothies. And rarely. But it's well built and the bottles are very good and useful.
Well worth the price, heat!
not the best quality but the milkshake this guy makes is so nice i've made it so many times since watching it......

This is really good for the price. It's nice to look at and it's compact, so doesn't take up much space at all

Quite funny, take a gadget which makes 'healthy' drinks, add 3 scoops of ice cream and 3 Oreos and milk....

Looks nice though
Great Product.
Been using this since October 3-4 times a week.
Heat!
I have this. Is pretty good but could do with a mesh as it doesn't make things smooth. Still a few bits in it
Thanks ideal for the summer months ordered and its even cheaper for NUS members heat added
Had it for 2 years and it made great smoothies
but the motor broke and now I'm smoothieless

I will buy another smoothie machine, but probably not this one. Worried about the quality

I don't think any of these smaller type kitchen gadgets are made to last these days. Tbh, if mine lasts 2 years, I'll be happy enough for £24 I think.

I have one of these and love it. Use it all the time. My only qualm is the colour. Bright green doesn't go with the rest of my kitchen!
If anyone wants to sell me a couple of the 300ml bottles with lids please message me.
Just a recap now remove ice cream from your sweatshirt hairs and all and just mix together, youtube lol
Hmm pretty tempted by this. The pro version is only a couple pounds more, worth the extra spend?
It's cheaper to buy a new unit than buy bottles individually from this set. Crazy.
