Sage The Kinetix Twist Blender BBL405UKM 2 "Doesn't live up to its claims and isn't very safe" Ms Bentley 06 May 2016 I use this blender for smoothies and it is not bad but some aspects are disappointing and I have some concerns about its safety. It is easy to use, nice to look at and doesn't take up much room . It can manage small amounts of soft ingredients but the 'kinetix action' doesn't work well. Its "immensely powerful" motor struggles even with avacado and I have to stop it to stir up the ingredients. It runs without the lid which is dangerous and hot soup will force the lid off spraying it everywhere. Jug looks shabby quickly. I would say much more, but there isn't room here - poor value for money. A note from the team Thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry you'd been a little disappointed with the blender. It does advise that it shouldn't be used with hot liquids,they should be allowed to cool down to warm before blending. I'll be in touch shortly.
