Lakeland Power Blender 5 "very happy!" sue 19 March 2012 I bought this a couple of weeks ago and I love it, I've made soups, breadcrumbs and mixed ingredients together. I have no problems with it. I understand some might find it heavy but whilst in the shop buying in the sales assistant insisted that we tried lifting it so we knew what to expect. Cleaning it is easy. All in all I think it will be much used in out house. Oh yes and the children love the smoothies!
