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.
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.
Worth of money
Blending ability of machine is like ice crushing. Really good to make smoothies .only problem occurs is crushing the small amount of products it stucks on surface of blender. Overall better than other blenders i had used before.
Purchased in January 2018.
I bought Kmart to blend fruit juice in the morning before my gym training. It's easy to clean and with very reasonable price. I even blend carrot which is a little hard but have no problem.
Purchased in August 2018.
Waste of money, this is the 4th blender i have bought from Kmart south hedland and theyre all terrible, you have to hold the lid down otherwise it will pop open and spray all over yourself and the kitchen, it leaks out the bottom leaving a big mess every time.
i was actually looking for the company to email through a complaint so if anyone knows thatd be great.
Dont buy it!!!
Terrible product...extremely noisy and heavy machine.everytime i tried making a smoothie, it has leaked... didnt blend frozen fruits well at all.. and now its stopped working all together...definitely waste of money
Purchased in October 2018 for $50.00.
Wish I didn’t waste my money
This is the noisiest blender I have ever come across. I can’t even use it as it makes my baby cry from the noise. I also don’t find that it blends frozen fruit very well. Waste of money.
Atrocious! Lasted 3 blends
I’ve now purchased three different types of blenders from Kmart and they are all terrible. The rubber seals don’t even last up to 5 times. I bought this blender last week. Used it twice and noticed leaking on the second time, this morning I tried to make a milkshake and it all poured out the bottom upon starting to blend and throughout the entire motor. Should have paid an extra $20 for literally anything else. Honestly better off throwing your ingredients in a zip lock bag and vigorously shaking for the good this pathetic excuse for a blender does you. I’ll never buy another electronic anything from Kmart. Can’t even take back as it’s been used. So annoying.
So far, so good. I've had this for 2 weeks and it has changed the way I eat breakfast. It's a great way to get my daily vegetable serving and the smoothies give me much needed energy in the morning. I wish I could say it is enough to replace my morning coffee but that would be crazy talk. I was a little hesitant to purchase this since it had mixed reviews. But like most appliances, much of the durability depends on how you care for it. The instructions say not to blend for minutes at a time. Just short bursts of blending. But it's so powerful there really is no need to blend for a long period of time.
After my other expensive blender died, i bought this one basically from seeing two of my children owning one and happy with their purchase. So far it is way quieter that my previous blender and the price was one third the price for an item which does the same job as last one. So if I get a few years out if it I will be happy
Good Blender for less price
I am loving this blender bought this more than 2 years ago, and thew my receipt and later realised I should have kept it to use the warranty, however in this time the blender is working perfectly. Good quality material is used, does the job like any other expensive blender.
Really Liquifies Fruit
Very happy with this blender. It has sharp and strong blades that really get stuck in and liquify fruit - not just squash it like our old one. Its quite powerful and I'll be doing granitas in it come summer. I think it will handle ice just fine. Good deal
