Philips Viva Collection HR1617


Cheap, quick and easy to use and plenty powerful

Variable speed motor ; Up and down action of blade makes belnding quicker ; Easy to use even when messy

Excellent purchase


Looking for something that was not too big and bulky, with too many attatchments, and I found it with this. Looks good, works well, doesn't take up too much space. Exceptional quality and excellent price. . So glad I bought it. Makes great soups!

Of High quality and design


It's very practical as a product, of high quality, performance and beautiful design. The vertical blades considerably speed up the blending process but make it harder to properly clean it.
