Simply Her (Singapore) - - Smartshopper Road Test -

$65 (comes with a 600ml jar, two 350ml tum­blers, a lid, an ex­tra chop­ping blade and a recipe book), from ma­jor depart­ment and elec­tri­cal stores US­ING IT It has two speeds – low, for soft fruits (which worked well for my smoothie) and high, for denser fruit like av­o­ca­dos. It took me a while to fig­ure out how to at­tach the blade, and de­tach­ing it was scary as I had to fit my fin­gers into a nook at the back of the blade holder to un­screw it. It’s the only one with an ex­tra chop­ping blade for minc­ing gar­lic and onions.

STA­BIL­ITY With no suc­tion pads on the base, the blender jumped a bit while in use. TUM­BLER DE­SIGN The lids go on and off eas­ily but aren’t spill­proof. The mouths are wide enough to eas­ily take half a ba­nana and whole straw­ber­ries. Un­like the oth­ers, which have flip-top lids, I had to re­move the press-down lid to drink from them. NOISE The qui­etest of the lot. CLEAN­ING UP The wide mouths made clean­ing up a cinch. VER­DICT Quiet, easy to clean and dou­bles as a chop­per too, al­though the blend­ing blades took some ef­fort to at­tach and de­tach.
