We've just had our second die on us. They have never had more than moderate use either and the most recent one only lasted a few months. The gears disintegrate. I love the bottles though and still use them.
Great reply mate. Thanks for that! Think I'll get it just for the convenience!
I have a salter one, more or less equivalent to a ninja one, it's looooooads more powerful. This is the same but different. If stuff is mainly liquid it does mix it, and surprisingly well. Lumpy stuff it has to catch, mush up then it swirls into its vortex and mixes. My morning concoction is one or two bananas, a heap of frozen red berry mixture, ice cream and protein powder. And generally a bit of water to help it mix (unless ice-cream has defrosted quite a bit) it mixes it thickly and it's a lovely gloopy red mess. But, I have to put the ingredients in, in an order. And generally take it the bottle off and bang it about a bit to physically move stuff to where the little blades can catch em at the bottom. Once mixed, flip it over, rinse blade bit, pop on green drinking cap, and I'm away. It's really good, quick and convenient like that. I put the bottle in the bottle holder of my rucksack and no leaks or issues as it clicks shut nicely. For £20, it has a small footprint, it ridiculously easy to keep clean, once you get the knack it's quick easy and simple. Buy it! If you like a 'smoothie' it's ace :) Ps, I heart mine!
Can anyone compare this to the nutribullet? I know that has a more powerful motor but leaning towards this due to price! (y)

I've had one about a year, use it daily. Unfortunately the accesories pack has been discountinued.
Thanks for sharing your experience with this product. I’ll probably end up buying something with a larger jug as my smoothies and shakes end up huge
For a single smoothie, sure. I usually blend up 3 ice cubes and half a frozen banana, along with protein powder and water/milk. It done the job fine everyday for the past ~3 years I've had it, but I'm sure other blenders are quicker / can manage more ice.
Depends what you are blending. For most people this is likely more than enough
Last time I had one of those it lasted us around a year of daily use, then the plastic parts had worn out. If you are into buying cheap and often... I guess it's a good option. I am personally not a fan of disposable electronics, just adding to the waste problem so I bought a Ninja blender instead and the quality of that is not even comparable to anything Breville.
