I'm an ex-barista & I wanted to make iced coffee drinks, slushees & smoothies at home. I went through 5 different blenders (from elsewhere) in a month before trying Lakeland. They broke, wouldn't switch on, were downright useless. This one is absolutely perfect. Sturdy jug but not too heavy. So easy to place in the hub. The lid isn't fiddly. Crushes ice with ease. Smoothies are perfectly smooth. Even down to the wire fitting tidily round inside the bottom. You feel safe with it. My new best friend in the kitchen. Oh & on a shallow note it looks cool on my counter.
