Blenders Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of blender would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
For the price it's perfect
I love making icy drinks at home but have never found a satisfactory blender in my price range until now.
This thing is well priced, easy to use and suits my purposes perfectly. I'm a huge fan of the way this thing crushes ice, which is what I've been looking for. Most blenders I've used diminish the ice so much it's no longer there. If you like a frappe-like consistency, that's no good but this one achieves that consistency very well.
Purchased in April 2018.
Love Using This!!
I’ve had this for a few years now! I was amazed at the price and even more pleased how easy it is to use! It’s light weight, not bulky and simple to use & we even take it on holidays with us!!
For those reviewing & stating their disappointment that this doesn’t stack up as a food processor...ITS NOT ONE, its a MIX & GO! When I need a quick breakfast smoothie or cocunut water blend, this hasn’t failed me! After years of use, it’s still going strong. It does have a slight burning/rubber smell now, but for what I paid and the fact it’s still going...
George packs a punch
This item just keeps going and going and going. I mix shakes to help with my diet. I put in bananas but I like it cold so I also put in a glass worth of ice cubes. Sounds like the machine is going to break , but it never has.
Perfect drink blender
I am 100% satisfied with this product and the way it blends with ease.
Crushes and blends anything I put inside the tube.
everything blends up perfectly with ease and leaves no lumps.
I like the tall cylinder shape and the fact it has hard connection disk to the mixer not like the others with rubber that shreds after a while.
- Mix & Go with Chill Sticks (GFBL3002CS)
- Verified purchase
Highly recommend this product. The blending ability is good. I love using this blending machine to make milk shake and juice! Also, the idea of chill stick is pretty awesome!
The stick blender is great
I use the stick blender for shakes it works really well I am really happy with it I told a friend about it then she went and bought one I like every thing about the blender
Purchased in February 2019 for $135.00.
This is good value but a silly design
There are some fundamentally design flaws with this product, given that you have to tip the smoothie cup upside down to blend and it can sometimes get stuck - quite silly as you could end up with liquid everywhere.
However, for the cheap price, it’s not a bad purchase. I’ve also had mine for several years now so I’ve definitely got my money’s worth.
Purchased in January 2017 for $35.00.
Great blender for the price, actually, can't expect more even if I paid double
Perfectly blends my smoothies, or occasionally my pumpkin soup. Every now and then there's an escaped small chunk of banana but apart from that it's fairly smooth blending. I love the chill sticks, perfect to bring to the gym or to work, keeping the smoothies cool for ages! So simple to use and clean too.
Much cheaper than a nutribullet and much better. It is small and sleek and easy to use and clean. It even blends apples. Love this blender and highly recommend it. BRILLIANT!
Does not last long
It was a good size and comes with two bottles and chills. First use was ok and everything went first. Then when I tried to make a drink the date after, it went dead. There were burning smell so I think motor overheat and burn out.
So it only last one use and went dead. Doesn't last long at all. Disappointing.
This is an excellent blender for soft fruits and vegetable powders. Best used for simple smoothies, perhaps with easy blend additions such as rolled oats or protein powder, but not the harder ingredients like nuts and seeds
I can’t live without this.
When I first brought this product I wasn’t sure if it could do what I needed it to do. I was mistaken and it has been my best purchase. I have used this blender every morning with a variety of different fruit, vegetable and ice and have had no problems with it blending everything up. Highly recommend this product.
Great value for money, Easy to use
I got this product for under $30. This product is great value for money. Mix and go bottles make it super easy to prepare a smoothie and save time. Highly recommended.
Exceptional value for money
So, we are in the hunt for a decent smoothie maker but everything was around the $100 mark. At first I was skeptical to buy this product for around ~$30 and after 4 weeks I can tell you that it is exceptional value for money. It mixes really well, crushes the ice really well and the container size is pretty decent.
What sucks is the noise it makes...its like drilling into a wall..
Plastic Cups seem thicker and more durable compared to my last ones
Blends Very Well: I questioned the strange shape of the cups until I started blending. It has bladed shaping on the bottom and sides to create a vortex that swallows everything you put in it. The blades look scarier than my last blender.
Good infact perfect
I absolutely love this bullet of an item blends fast made with great material no rusting absolute steal i got it for 50 dollars as second hand boy this is an amazing deal
Great for Liquid Substances
I got this blender a little while ago, and I use it all the time! Sometimes it has a bit of a problem blending frozen berries, it’ll freeze up the blades and get stuck, so I’ll have to hit the bottle a few times to manoeuvre the fruit into a blendable position. The blades aren’t very sharp which is good for safety, but not so good for blending. It certainly gets the job done though, and it’s a lot more affordable than some others. It definitely works better for room temperature foods and cold liquids, than frozen foods and icy liquids.
Cheaply made but works well
This is quite light weight but it spins up really fast and is an excellent smoothie and shake maker. I haven't used the chill sticks but I just throw some ice cubes in and its teh same effect. Its pretty effective and makes lovely drinks. Cleans up easily too
Quick and easy to use
The machine blends all fruit items very well. Great for breakfast smoothy. After using for awhile, the actual bottle seem to have a leak and some of the smoothy goes unto the machine when blending. I have to clean thoroughly afterwards. Still using it though. It's affordable enough to bear through one inconvenience.
So good and easy to use
Blends really well and was super convenient to blend and take my drink with me during the day. 10/10 recommend to anyone wanting to blend healthy smoothies. Loved the big blender too for making drinks for the whole family.

Questions & Answers
How do i reset George Forman Mix & Go, as the LED light keeps blinking? in the instructions it says if it over heats wait for 20 mins. I however have wated for an hours and when i turn it back on the led lights still blinks.
GFBL300. Blade attachment is stuck in Base. Tried turning it tight then wiggle it as I turned the opposite way.
Worked first time but now it has happened again and refuses to budge. As well as that, liquid leaked into Base and now it is rotting and smelly. How on earth do I get it all apart and then clean inside the Base. There doesn't appear to be a way to pull it apart for cleaning.
I have just bought a George Foreman mix & go how on earth do I remove the rubber gasket in the blade assembly for cleaning.
You really don't have any info on this in the instruction book.
