Breville Blend Active Review
Rach and I usually struggle to have breakfast on weekdays as we both leave early in the morning for work. The downside to that is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, going on a health kick we wanted to find a way to get breakfast into our daily routine.
As well as wanting to get breakfast into our routine, we also wanted to try and increase the amount of fruit and vegetables in our diet. We do have a lot of vegetables in our evening meal and some fruit, however it cannot hurt to add more into our diet.
This is when we thought about having breakfast smoothies, they are healthy as well as quick to make.
I have not been asked or paid to do this Blend Active Review, I have purchased the blender and use it on a daily basis. This review is based on my own personal experience with the blender and what I personally think about it.
What Made Me Pick Breville Blend Active?
There are so many options on smoothie blenders, it is important to make sure you pick a good blender though. I have had a couple in the past that just didn’t blend everything or was a complete pain to clean. I even used a food processor…that was a mistake as it didn’t blend very well at all 🙂
When I was looking for a smoothie maker/blender I was debating over 3 different smoothie blenders. The 3 were NutriBullet, Nutri Ninja and Breville Blend Active, I spent some time reviewing them to see which would be more suitable for what I was after.
One of the main reasons I chose the Breville Blend Active was because of the price. I have only recently gotten into drinking smoothies and felt that the price of NutriBullet and Nutri Ninja was a bit high for something that I didn’t know if I would stick to.
The Breville Blend Active that I purchased was only £19.99, which I think is a really good deal for a smoothie blender that is actually really good quality. The other two are also great brands and have had some excellent reviews, however I have not used them myself.
What Comes with Breville Blend Active?
There are two Blend Actives that can be purchased, the personal one and then the family blender. Both actual smoothie blenders are the same the main difference is the family one you get some smaller bottles.
As it’s just Rach and I that will be using it, the cheaper of the two is enough as you get enough bottles for 2 people to use it.
Included in this package is;
The Smoothie Blender with the removeable blade section
2 Smoothie Bottles
2 Smoothie Bottle Lids
Pros To Breville Blend Active
- Great quality product that is low in cost
- Very easy to clean
- Quickly blends frozen fruit
- User friendly
- Blends directly into the bottle
Cons To Breville Blend Active
- Bits can get stuck so may need to remove from the blender and shake
What’s my personal views of the Breville Blend Active Smoothie Blender?
After using it for several months now, I can say that I am more than happy with my purchase. The blender itself is actually really good quality for the price and getting two bottles included is really nice.
The smoothie blender is really easy to clean, I simply unscrew the blades from the base and put under the tap and it clears the smoothie right off, give it a quick dry and place it back on the blender.
I also like the fact that you blend the smoothie straight into the bottle, this saves you having to blend it into a container, transfer it and then wash the surface (I always used to spill some!!) The Breville Blend Active is also very simple to use, it has one button “blend” (pretty simple hey!!)
Another feature I like is the safety aspect of it, if the blades are not in place and the bottle is not locked in place then the blend button doesn’t work – protecting you from any potential accidents!
My Final Conclusion….
This is an excellent smoothie blender that is not only powerful but very user friendly, for the price I don’t think you can really go wrong with this. If you are looking to add smoothies into your diet or looking for a new blender, I would recommend this one.
