Magimix Le Blender
Finally a blender that makes my smoothies with ease and has no problem with ice or frozen fruit. It is also really easy to clean which is very handy.
Definitely recommend investing in this if you use a blender regularly.

Perfect for juicing and smoothies
I really wanted one appliance to replace my Jack la Lane Juicer and Kenwood smoothie maker. The two were bulky and took up too much surface space in our tiny kitchen, not to mention the juicer was a pain to keep clean.
My requirements; a blender that could blitz "greens" such as Kale and hard veggies like carrots, crush ice for Margaritas, make soups and other smoothies, is small enough so as not to take up too much room and easy to clean, handle and operate.
After two or so months of contemplation I decided on the Magimix Le Blender. I am so glad I did. This beauty is fantastic. It takes cares of greens no problem and makes the most delicious iced drinks.
So far we have have had kale, spinach, kiwi & apple. Beetroot, carrot, apple and ginger (I did strain this one but we drank the kale smoothie straight), banana smoothies and peach and strawberry ices. I have yet to make soup but I cannot see how this will be any less easy to make.
For the price I do not think you can get better than this. Highly recommended!

Good, but don't expect magic
It is indeed a good blender. Chops fast, and powerful. Looks great in your kitchen.
However, it is not as good as I expected. The price is more than double than my old one, I could not say it is much better. A bit better, though.
It also blends really loudly at higher speed. However, on the other hand, you can not operate more than 10 seconds on the higher speed. Otherwise, you would smell burning. Therefore, I generally am forced to operate at speed level one, although they actually offer four speeds.
All in all, I would say this is a very good blender, probably the best one I have used so far, but also the most expensive one. If you are not on a tight budget, I would definitely recommend this.

The Best Blender Ever for the Money
I am so pleased with this Blender. I would go so far as to say it is the best one I have ever owned. I am in my seventies. I make a lot of soup and it liquidises perfectly in seconds. As yet that is all I have used it for. Would reiterate other peoples comments that it is very easy to clean again only takes seconds. The other thing I love about it is that it just stands unobtrusively on my worktop so is always ready for use. In the past my blenders were an attachment to my food mixer which was always heavy to get out of the cupboard to use. Some people say the jug on this blender is heavy, that is because it is thick glass but I don't find it too bad at all. Certainly better than keep lifting a heavy food mixer. I would certainly recommend this product.

Good value for money
This blender is well built, looks good and blends really well. It has a really powerful motor on it, so compared to more expensive models you are getting a lot of blender power.

This is the best blender I have ever bought. It makes smoothies and soups so easily and feels sturdy and reliable. The jug is glass which may be a bit heavy for some people but it is heat resistant which is brilliant when making soups. The lid is a snug fit but I didn't have a problem removing it. It is a pleasure to use.

A kitchen gadget that makes me smile
An excellent piece of kit. This takes smoothies and soups to a new level of smoothness. This blender can also make good ice cream and sorbets, so has removed another item from my wish list. I leave this machine on my work top as it more than earns its modest footprint. A powerful machine can seem noisy, but for a very short time as it does a brilliant job in only a few seconds. I am glad I put the time in to research the higher end blenders, I feel I have saved myself a couple of hundred pounds and still have a high quality machine.

Brilliant, a big thumbs up.
I have used this blender every day for a month and it is amazing. The quality and smoothness of the smoothies is better than some I've had which have been professionally made and it blends them very fast. It is extremely easy to clean. It's a little loud but it's so quick the noise is over almost as soon as it's begun. I strongly recommend this product!
