Good blender, absolutely stupid packaging
I have owned a few blenders, as a blender by itself, this is not bad at all. But the way they sell their blendcups is absolutely stupid, they expect you to disassemble your jug and fit it to the cups. Why can't they sell the whole assembly with the cups!?? Also design an assembly just for the cups that is one piece not 3, make live easier for people

I absolutely love my Magimix blender so much that I ordered one for my sister in England too. Makes great smoothies, soup and many other favourites. Can deal with any type of fruit & veg for green smoothies etc.
Excellent machine, powerful
Very happy with this blender. I purchased just shy of 2 years ago and it is still working perfectly. I bought it based on its positive reviews and because it's a glass blender that is powerful enough to blend ice and nuts. My blender gets regular use with ice and frozen fruit and does an excellent job of making frozen desserts and smoothies. I've only made nut butter a couple of times, as per the instructions, and it worked well - it needed a few goes to get everything smooth. It's a nice looking machine and easy to use, it is pretty loud (but I think that is to be expected?). I highly recommend this product, if you're looking for a powerful glass blender.
great blender, expensive replacement seals
We have had our Magimix 'Le Blender' for almost five years and use it every day. It is a very good blender, but about every 2 years the blade seal has to be replaced. Considering that it's just a tiny silicone rubber seal, it is rather expensive (current price $15). This wouldn't be so bad if you could buy a pack of 5 or 10 at a discount, but you can't -- you can only buy them individually.
The blending ability is great it handles solids and liquids beautifully.
If solids want mix well add a little liquid and it just whips it up.
Love it is glass no toxic plastic fumes

Works as good as it looks!
I wanted a new blender with enough power to make smoothies with ice and avocado, and this one is great! I mostly use the smoothie function which will alternate between higher and lower speeds so the ingredients are dropped onto the blades more efficiently throughout the blending. The jug is a breeze to clean too. The blades can be removed to clean the base too.
I real whizz (excuse the pun)
I have used and used this blender. It’s easy to clean and always gives me the blend I need - dry or wet. A little expensive, but worth the money!
I have had this blender for a few day's now and I am so loving the easy to use functions. Best of all I also recieved the free promotion offer of the blend cups two in the pack and the Mill attachment as well. What a bonus promotion as well. Great value for $285
A Good No Nonsense Blender
We were after a blender with a glass jar at a reasonable price and after a bit of research we decided to purchase the Magimix Leblender. It has a good range of speeds and can be used both with manual speed selection or preset , like all blenders it is noisy but that is what you would expect from a high speed appliance that it spinning at 15000 rpm. The glass jar with handle is very well made as is the motor base with the whole appliance having a well made appearance to it. I have only made smoothies in it so far and have been very pleased with...the result, it also can be easily disassembled for cleaning. The selling point for us was the glass jar and the clean modern appearance with minimal controls. The service from Kitchen Warehouse was 2nd to none.
Great, sturdy, powerful blender. The pulse function is good for getting bites and pieces that aren’t captured initially. Cleaning is easy, you just have to be mindful that food can become packed into the rim around the blade. The blender is loud, but not particularly more than others I’ve tried.

Blend, mix, grind - this is the one.
This blender is great for smoothies and crushes ice really well. We got bonus tumblers and you can blend a smoothie straight from the tumbler. Awesome product and would recommend.
Not bad for the price
Very good for soups and blending very soft items. Often not the best for tougher types of goods such as beef chicken and lamb. The blender itself is very well priced and is very solid in built. It works really well for the amount of times I've used it. Good over a'll.
Many years of service completed, many more to go
A great blender. I've had mine for several years and it still works as well as it did day 1. It does most things well including most nuts. My main uses are milkshakes, smoothies and soups. It makes about 2 people worth of drink at a time.
The jug itself is glass which is wonderful. Whilst it would be recommended to drop said glass from any height I have banged it around a couple times by accident. I have also moved house at least 12 times since buying her since i rent and she has held up against those odds.
To keep her going as long as ...possible (despite myself above) I clean her immediately after every use. I also insist housemates go through a how to use lesson before gaining access to use her and revoke access if she isnt treated properly. I have never personally put the base in the dish washer as I have always assumed that the dishwasher safe bit was in respect to the other components. I no longer have my manual for the machine but have read from other reviews this is a thing some owners have done. I recommend not doing that. I may be wrong, but it seems unlikely that putting an electric portion of a device in water is a good idea. The item has open areas at the bottom to allow the motor to cool itself down whilst in use. It is likely if the machine is put in water the water will enter the motor and corrode the system. I wash the bse by dipping a cloth into the soapy sink, wringing the cloth then using with as minimal water as possible on the outside then wiping down with a paper towel immediately. So far so good. TLDR; is quality made, will last a long time, and does most things. Don't immerse base in water.
Shonky, has failed twice in 2.5 years
The machine smoked after 12 months. Was told that it was my fault as it had been put in the dishwasher, and the powder corrodes the spinner (the manual clearly states that it is dishwasher safe). After a battle, Magimix repaired the item. 18 months later, same issue again. No dishwasher use, yet they told me that the Earth's Choice Liquid is corrosive! Can you believe it? Don't buy it.
I love this blender
I love the the fact that it is a strong glass jug as oppose to many other blender out there with plastic jug.
Very powerful, easy to clean.
Back up purchase.
Had one for for several years. No problems, used at least twice daily. Considered it may be an advantage to have a reserve. Kitchenware-superstore provided a prompt service, sent same day, well packed, at an excellent price
Great! No issues. Much quieter than my previous blender. Looks great on my bench too
I have never had anything but great experiences when using this blender. I love the different settings i.e soup, smoothie. It makes the smoothest pumpkin soup I have ever eaten. I also use it to make tasty frappes and icy cocktails. It is the bomb!
I use this regularly for making smoothies, soups and frozen drinks.
The pre-programmed modes (crushed ice, smoothies/drinks, soups, frozen desserts) are very convenient.
If using frozen ingredients, make sure they are in ice-cube sized chunks. e.g. Frozen spinach: look for ones in individual "portions". (I bought a "brick" by mistake; partly defrosting it in the fridge makes dividing it up easier and safer.)
"Auto-clean" (1L warm water, a drop of detergent and blend on 3 for 30s) is best treated as a pre-wash only; it's easy to disassemble and clean the blender properly
Bought the Vitamin 6 weeks ago and after only 4 weeks use discovered there was a chip in the base of the glass jug. I have no knowledge of how this happened as I am the only one who uses it. I have owed and used glass jug blenders for the past 30 years and never had any problems before. I was prepared to buy another glass jug as I thought it must have been me, but when the rubber seal at the base of the blender broke (after only six weeks) , I have now started to have doubts about the durability of this product.I really don't feel like spending more money if there will be further issues with this product.
I've contacted the company who have been less than helpful.
Questions & Answers
We love our new blender but wonder if there is an attachment so that the smoothies don't dribble down the side when pouring into a glass? Are we doing something wrong?
3rd time using blender - smoothie function in smoothie cup. I smelt a “Bakelite smell” and then smoke exuded! Stopped blender immediately! Is this normal? Concerned to continue use! ? Please advise!
