Great machine but
Does a really good job
Light jug, comfortable to hold. It is noisy but they all are. Rubber sucker feet sure hold it but require thought
LEAKED around the spindle
KMart refunded, I will try another when in stock

Honest 4 Stars but could be quieter.
If you're an aspiring alcoholic like me and blending out a Pina Colada at 3am helps you sleep at night, then by all means this is the blender for you. The functionality is great and the multiple options available do what they're supposed to! However I'm soon to be evicted as my neighbors have complained repeatedly about the noise, something about "wailing of a thousand trapped souls being stuffed down a garbage disposal at once" Not sure what they mean.
If you're a morning person who just wants a quiet juice smoothie at 7am, then look elsewhere.

Apart from the noise, I cant fault it
Replaced junky Nutribullet because their base/blade unit kept burning out bearing. Bad design due to dry bearings. Im pretty sure the Anko product does not have dry bearings which is preferable because these things scream.
BTW if you have retired a Nutribullet, yes you can use their cups; they screw into the Anko cup base; just make sure not to tighten with too much force, as the thread is not exactly the same.
Makes perfect smoothies and doesn't take up too much space.
Tip - for prewash after use, half fill with water and put on a short ...

overall pretty good
Its fairly noisy, but it does a good job. I like all the different options.
Its handy having the 2 sized cups.
We've had ours for a few months and today it decided not work. Lights on etc but motor not going. A couple of times we have not tightened up the bottom which allowed liquid out which had made the safety part not click down properly. I unplugged and used the handle of spoon to keep pushing them all down. Its now back in action.
great little machine for the money.

Come on feel the noise
Blends ok, not so great with frozen fruit though as it tends to get air pockets and just make noise (lots of noise). Should come with a family sized box of ear plugs.
My daughter loves making frappes with it, and it gets there eventually, usually at about 10pm. Dogs 4 houses away start to bark.
It has lots of buttons, all of which are equally good at getting the neighbourhood dogs going off.
Think I'll get my mother-in-law one.

Leaky and loud.
This blender is very loud and liquid leaks out of the bottom. This is the second Anko product I have had to return. I won't be buying this brand again.

Capable of almost everything
I love my blender and use it every single day for smoothies, it has no dramas blending ice. I blend pesto and more dry ingredients in there too which isn’t as successful as it needs a fair bit of liquid to blend or chop. So many different speed settings. It is quite noisy!

Has some cons but good for under $50
Very powerful it demolishes anything I put in it. Oh my gosh it is noisy though...I have to give the kids fair warning to evacuate kitchen lest be scared witless. I also have the issue a few times of the bottom detaching mid blend.... Perhaps I wasnt particularly strong those days. For under $50 I feel I can't complain but next time I possibly will spend a the extra for a brand name one.

Powerful and good value
The blender is excellent value and comes with a couple of attachments (the main blender and 2 cups). It is more powerful than I expected and has blended everything with ease.
Kitchen perfect, bit loud
Very satisfied with function.
Properly handles solid to liquid.
Works with many things since many options to choose.
I like its various options available to choose from chop to paste, low to medium.

Good blender, but quite LOUD
Overall, this blender does the job. But it's quite loud to the point it hurts my ears. I measured the decibels: Min 84, Average 85, Max 88. I think if the jug was made of glass it would have made a big difference.

Seals very poor quality so blender leaks
Unfortunately the seals are cheap plastic and have worn out within a year. Cannot find replacement seals online to fit so everything is now leaking out the bottom. Motor still working but without proper fitting seals the thing is useless. It is also very loud which is an issue using it early in the morning.

Exception Value for Money
We have been using this blender for last 4 years, we can make almost everything we like from smoothie to mixing lentils.
The only challenge we had is that we have to exchange/replace this three times in last four years due to fact that our first one had cracked blender body within four month so Kmart replaced that with new one without cost (we saved bill luckily !) and then second replacement had burning smell coming out of it within two months so kmart again replaced it with new one !!
third one last almost 2.5 years before it cracked the b...lender jar body and then we again placed our trust in kmart and got the same model again which is going strong for last 1.5 years ...! it is worth noting that you can either buy something worth $150 or $200 and then use it for 5 years or you buy $49 every two years ! choice is yours but we consider that paying low upfront is value for money for US ! Just note that if you happen to buy this then keep the receipt of purchase in case you need to replace it !

Very satisfied, it is super quick.
Love every thing about it, also very easy to clean, just be careful you
Attach properly when blending hot soup, as I ended up with it splattered everywhere.

1. Incredibly loud, like a tree mulcher
2 Couldn't blend a smoothie
3. Leaked out the bottom all over benchtop.
#3 I only realised that night when there was a thick sticky residue on the benchtop. This blender is complete crap.

I purchased this unit approximately 4 months ago and have been using it for smoothies. Hasn't missed a beat ... very happy with it . Easy to clean and light weight as it has a plastic jug

I have this Blender for some time and it's very good and uses less power consumption. Easy to clean and easy to use. This is the much need for summer buying.
Purchased in April 2018 at Kmart for $50.00.
Sadly on the first use the xj-12412 will be heading for the bin. The processing liquid just came right through to the base mechanism , which has now well and truly made the machine . ( yes checks were done to make sure it was all tight and good to go)
$50 down the drain. Worst purchase consudering choice gave it a decent report.
I used this blender for the first time this evening. Not only can I fault the motor being extremely noisy but suddenly, within 10 seconds of using ‘blend’, smoke started pouring out from the bottom! I immediately turned it off from the power point. Smoke continued to pour out from the motor for a duration of half an hour or so. This potentially could have caused a house fire! Overall, I’d consider spending more money elsewhere for safety purposes.

Questions & Answers
I switched on the blender , added some water in the blender jar and pushed the power on button. Red lights flashed and when i push the other buttons, all of them have the white lights flashing and then switch off. What could be the issue?
