Chris Freytag 40 oz. 350 Watt Smoothie Maker w/ Pour Spout & Pulse Control
Not what I expected.
The smoothie maker mixed the ingredients pretty good. I did not like having to take the pour spout apart to clean it, too much trouble. I ordered two and was going to give one to my grandkids, but I'm afraid they would not clean the spout properly and possibly get sick.
I am really enjoying my smoothie maker. The kids use it for smoothies all the time. I love the spout so that you don't have to worry about spills when pouring. Well worth the money.
Had to get another one for a spare!
I don't understand some of the negative reviews. I use mine all the time. I put apples with skin, mini carrots, kale, frozen fruit - works like a dream. You do have to put enough liquid in - maybe some had that problem. I loved it so much, I just ordered another one on clearance with free shipping - I never want to be without one in the future.
One of the best purchases I have made on QVC. I have a difficult time getting enough fruits and vegetables every day, but with this machine, I can throw in all kinds of fruits and vegetables. I also put in some vanilla protein powder and soy milk. Just delicious and so good for me. I think it is a wonderful machine.
Donj't let the price fool you!
This is an excellent machine for making smoothies. I'd been using one that my husband purchased, but I was it's a pain to have to stop to stir and start it over again. This one takes much less time, and the I didn't have to take it off of the base to stir. Love this little machine.
Very cheap--overheated and smelled hot so I shut it off. Returned and won't buy anymore of her products.
Started Smoking the second time using it!
THIS IS MY FIRST EVER REVIEW WHICH GOES TO SHOW YOU HOW MUCH THIS PRODUCT DISAPPOINTED ME. I WENT TO THE STORE VERY EXCITED AND GATHERED UP ALL THE FRUITS AND DRINKS FOR A GREAT DRINK. IT'S INEXPENSIVE FOR A REASON. THE 2ND TIME USING IT, IT STARTED SMOKING. I DIDN'T EVEN PUT ANYTHING CRAZY IN IT, JUST SOME FRUIT AND ICE! SMOOTHIE WAS RUINED. MY IDEA OF "SMOOTHIE A DAY APRIL" IS NO LONGER. DON'T BUY UNLESS YOU LIKE THE SMELL OF A BURNT SMOOTHIE MAKER.
Don't recommend this one.
I receive this as a gift and I don't like the spout. It needs to have a handle on the jar for ease in pouring.
I would have bought another one but since my daughter gave it to me I will use it
but I really wanted a regular blender to use for smoothies and also to use to
make other things. It just doesn't work for me. Sorry.
I use it to make milk shakes and smoothies have't had a problem yet
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
I AM FROM FL AND THIS IS THE BEST ITEM FOR SUMMER ,IT COST AROUND $30 SO AFTER MAKING 6 SMOOTHIES IT'S PRETTY MUCH PAY FOR ,I LOVE THIS PRODUCT AND I LOVE LOVE LOVE QVC!!!!!!!!!THANK YOU SO MUCH.
Great Product and it is great for smoothies. I would order this product for my friends.
This is an amazing, amazing blender. I have had other blenders in the past with higher motor wattage and they have not blended as well as this one does. It blends ice, and frozen fruit very well. Occasionally, there will be small pieces of ice that have not been crushed, but that is rare and usually the result of my adding too much liquid to the blender. I haven't used the spout much, but from the times I have, it has no problem releasing thin smoothies but has some trouble with thicker ones. Although this is not a perfect blender, it is by far the best one I have ever owned. I was pleasantly surprised upon receiving and using it after reading the reviews. I give it a five stars and not a four because I simply love it so much and I don't expect any blender to work perfectly all the time. I highly recommend this blender to anyone who is in the market for a new blender but who don't want to spend a fortune. This is a GREAT value for minimal price.
I like the smoothie maker enjoy making healthy breakfast smoothies, but my only complaint it's shaky ,the blender doesn't sit tight on the base. For those who complain about it not chopping up ice try using frozen fruit.
