Powerful but not popular in our house”
This is definitely a powerful blender but the menfolk in my household cannot get to grips with the controls. In addition the base of the (very heavy) glass goblet is too large in diameter for me to unscrew and my husband has to put a cloth around it to stop it hurting his hand. Having said that, it blends and crushes well.

WORST BLENDER EVER!”
I purchased this blender over 1 week ago, the 1st blender stopped working after 1 week, I then exchanged it for another thinking I was just unlucky only to have the new blender stop working after 1 day!!! Same thing the blue light kept turning on and off and then eventually died.

Good but one frustrating thing”
by Mrs Vaughan
I've had this product for almost a year. We make smoothies successfully every time. My only criticism is thay you can't dismantle/unscrew the blade section for washing up. It's suggested that you whizz it with soapy water to clean it but I'd still rather unscrew as with old blenders I've had in order to clean blades well. Still giving it good rating though.

I am a smoothie veteran, Ive had a number of blenders ranging from great to bad. After moving to the UK I did a lot of research as to the best blender for me and thought Lakeland's Power Blender was the best wattage to price blender for me. I have been wrong and extremely disappointed. I KNOW how to make smoothies and I've followed the blender's instructions to the 't' and every single time I get: 1. Mealy smoothies 2. Lumpy smoothies 3. Poorly crushed ice I've had worse blenders that at least removed all the chunks. I've had this for 4 months and used it few times because I am so disappointed

Received my blender this week as I wanted a free standing one that could also crush ice, so far so great, have been making lovely cold drinks with ice, also hope to get lots of use with soups etc, very pleased overall, best blender I've had. The blue light is also a great idea and the separate functions very handy.

Lakeland power blender”
Blender delivered today so gave it a test run. Blended smoothly and quickly and compared to our previous one,was quieter. So far then 4 stars all round and if the reliability holds up when I edit this review in 3 months time, then I'll happily give it 5 stars. So it looks good, sounder good and does the job; what more can one ask for?

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.
