The Rolls Royce of blenders, it is so powerful and efficient, it's not hard to see why so many pay its top-shelf price.

You can also turn it on and walk away as it turns off once the program is completed. Plus it features a digital timer so you can blend to absolute perfection.

The durable plastic jug is dishwasher safe, but can also self-clean in no time at all by whizzing a little warm water with a few drops of dishwashing liquid.
