What I liked about the product

I love the fact that this can do so many things! Kitchens get cluttered so easily – plus appliances are expensive. Something that can do so many things presses my buttons!

I’ve used it to chop stuff like peppers and onions for pasta sauces, and also to mix cake ingredients. I’ve also made a milkshake with some overripe raspberries and the kids loved it. It apparently grinds salt, pepper and nuts too, which I’ve yet to try. Everything I’ve done has come out exactly as I wanted.

It’s ideal for hiding fruit and veggies in recipes – from pizza toppings to muffins. Perfect if you have veggie-fearing fussy eaters!

It’s really easy to use: you just push down to turn on. There are rather a lot of parts which took a while to work out, but I love the fact that I can stick them in the dishwasher when I’m done.

I just wish I’d got this when our children were babies. It’s well-thought out too, with sealable lids so you can save what you don’t use. It would have saved getting that hand-held whisk that I used to make baby food – it’s completely redundant now!

What I didn’t like

I felt I had to make sure it’s closed properly or it comes loose. It also would have been nice to have more speed settings.

Is it good value for money?

I thought it was expensive compared to many of the others on the market. But considering it does so many things, I actually think it’s a bargain compared to having several appliances.

Where to purchase this product

Quite a lot of places, even Argos, are selling this for just under £45 which is rather steep. But Tesco Direct have it for £35, and currently on offer for just under £27. Now that’s well worth it.
