Kmart basic blender
Blender is affordable you get what you paid for.
It can handle liquids easily you might have some problems with solids.
The machine doesn’t have much options.
Its very basic compared to other blenders
Purchased for $29.00.
Did the job
Did the job, however with thicker blends it tends to leave the top unstirred. Went to wash it one morning and the hot water made it explode. Probably my own error but just a warning

Not Bad for its Price
Pros: Nothing could go wrong for a $30 for a Blender!!! Cheap and doable. It could make you a smoothie.
Cons: It could not blend a very frozen fruits and Ice.
I had a frozen banana & berries, after blending it for 30secs-60secs. I could still free bits of banana and berries. So before making a smoothie, make it sure that the fruits are a bit thawed
Ok blender. Had one fail when I overloaded it, but it's so cheap it doesn't matter.
Ok blender. Had one fail when I overloaded it, but it's so cheap it doesn't matter. Now I have two blender container things (one from the old one).
I bought it to pulverize vegetables to make juice, but I use it more to cook. It's good for spag bolognaise and other things like that.
It's pretty loud.
Not bad for the price. Does the job, but nothing amazing!
This blender works well, and does a good job at blending a variety of foods, including nuts/ fruit for smoothies or tomato/ other veg for sauces or pesto. However, you do need to dice up the required vegs into smaller pieces otherwise the blade gets stuck and it takes a while to blend, and the consistency is quite lumpy. The blade is also quite small and the pulse settings vary slightly.
It is decent for its purpose/price but I would opt for spilling a few extra coins to buy a better blender that will hopefully last longer and wont make much sound.
Mediocre at best.
In all honesty, it does the job for easy things like bananas, ice cream, and pineapple for example, but realistically it should be worth $20. It's quite large yet if you are blending multiple things like orange juice with apple slices and orange slices, you will have to let it blend then turn it over with a spoon as it is unable to reach the top to blend it, then once turning it over a few times, it will then be of a drinking consistency. Okay for its purpose but I would rather pay more for a better long-term blender.
Cheap and does the job
I got this blender because I wanted to start making smoothies and sauces. Honestly, I don't see the real need for a more pricey blender as of yet as my creations are relatively simple (just smoothies and sauces). It does what I want it to do and can make a variety of smoothies. I usually put fruit, yoghurt, milk and ice and blend it up and out comes delicious goodness!
Blends things with a slight smoky smell
The blender is very useful and simple to use. Great for only $30 - there are three settings, 1 and 2 speed and pulse. Pulse works but is a little sporadic. The pulsing is regular but doesn't do much more than the regular blend mode, if I have a banana I just put the setting on 1 then off and back on again to ensure it works. There is also a slight bending petrol smell but this is very normal for the lower quality blenders according to science!
