I want to buy a blender


#1

I thought it would be easy but Amazon has made it complicated. My budget is £40 and I would like it to be able to do ice. Can you guys recommend anything half good that you have used?


#2

Can you stretch past £40 at all?


#3

Get yourself a Kenwood mate


#4

I thought it might be good to stick to a good brand but my flat mate got a no brand one that was really good and cheap that I used all the time but now he has moved out.


#5

@discobot recommended the same one! Probably mates though.


#6

Hi! To find out what I can do, say @discobot display help.


#7

what do you want to use it for? We had this lad and never had any complaints-

(I binned the sharp bits when I was having post-natal anxiety, so we no longer have a working version.)

I’m not sure how this differs from nutribullets > twice the price.
(and would genuinely like to know as I do need to buy a replacement blender soon).

I’ve got one of these which I find very useful:

That one looks great, did cope with ice? I dot think I will put ice in very often but wouldn’t mind having the option.


#10

Yes it did, although at many,many decibels as it ground through the hard matter, which kind of set my teeth on edge.


#11

Another vote for Breville Blend Active Personal Blender Cool Water


#12

(I think this is true however of any blender grinding ice).


#13

Got a Nutribullet last week from a HOT UK DEAL, I’m sure some penoids will say it’s not really a blender but it certainly seems like one to me.

#15

I’m not sure this is a NutriBullet…


#16

All the same innit


#17

I have this and it’s great and it can handle ice like nobody’s business


#18

Erm…hate to break it to you but they’re not. I’ve had the cheap fake nutribullet and it’s rubs and breaks after a while. The real one has a shit load more power.


#19

Oh, I have a real Nutribullet. I don’t know what this Amazon one is. It says it’s from the makers of Nutribullet? No idea.


#20

I thought you had that one from Amazon. The “Magic Bullet”.

Nutribullets are usually about £80-£100 so i’d be surprised if they were down to £40!
