Now I realize this is, again, a somewhat special item, BUT I think it may be worth it. Aldi has a high powered blender on sale - online now, in store on the 8th of September, which should do a fairly good job if you're into green smoothies and the likes.

Why do I think this is interesting? A blender with the identical specs is offered on ebay and amazon for around £100 with a "charles jacobs" label and quite decent reviews, however the aldi version is cheaper and comes with 3 years of warranty.

And why not just get 30 quid bog standard model? Well if you like putting spinach, kale or raspberries into your smoothie the difference in texture between a high powered blender and a "simple" one is night and day in my experience, but if you just want to crush some ice or make banana milk, don't waste your money on this.

That is if the mechanism will survive the power of the motor below. I have had to throw two three blenders with perfect motors because the locking mechanism in between the jar and motor breaks after some use and difficult to get spares . You can buy this but Aldi won't sell any spares in UK unlike in Germany so if the mechanism breaks you have to throw away the whole thing.

Their warranties are pretty good - make sure you keep the receipt.

I know they're expensive, but a Vitamix is amazing, it's worth saving up for one.
They will last a lifetime.

I am sorry for digging up the old thread. I am considering getting this blender but have a question regarding it's operation. Is it true that it needs to be pressed down to start blending? This is what a reviewer mentioned on Aldi's web site:

"I bought one - placed all the ingredients ready for blending but doesn't … "I bought one - placed all the ingredients ready for blending but doesn't even switch on. Had it exchanged but the second one was exactly the same! - In order for the switch to come on you need to place all your body weight on it! Ridiculous! Got a refund and bought one from it's competitor which worked perfectly!!!"



Thanks

Somebody said this about my magimix and dualit but sadly not nowadays.

You get 2 extra rubber drive couplings with this so no worries there. Also if what you call the 'locking mechanism' (i.e. the drive coupling) starts wear quickly, it actually indicates the bearings around the blade in the jug are creating excessive friction and are on the way out. Once they fail (because at 36,000 RPM they are usually the most stressed part) usually it's cheaper to buy a new 2L jug. You can buy proper engineered dual bearing rings rated at 40,000 RPM to fit like what a vitamix uses for under £15, but you have to know how to fit them (youtube vids etc...).
