With 'Triple'Ax' technology for extreme blending, the 'Blendforce Maxi' blender from Tefal makes light work of all food types, with two upward serrated blades that act as a cyclone booster so no pieces are left behind, two sharpened downward blades to ensure no chunks are left behind and two sharpened and serrated horizontal blades for optimum blending. It features five speed settings with an added pulse action and has removable stainless steel blades for easy cleaning.

Tefal Maxi Blender, a report on the product by an Engineer & consumer.This blender is ideal for smoothies, however the blender failed on the second use. I was about to return when I discovered a design weakness, which means I have to check the components regularly to be able to use the blender. On the second use blender would not switch on, I traced the fault to the bottom plastic drive wheel on the jug being loose, in fact it completely disconnected. The nut in the wheel is held captive but there is no locking washer holding this wheel firmly to the blade shaft, unfortunately this means the blender will not work with slightly loose fittings. I suspect the safety switch is not being correctly deactivated due to clearances. The jug is extremely heavy (glass) my dainty misses struggles with weight., the blender is very top heavy when loaded. Motor housing (base) is very light, the switch on front is a rotary type but has a cheap feel to it. speeds 4-6 are really irrelevant as there is no significant difference in rotational speed. This blender will however fly through frozen fruit and ice due to strong 600W motor. This is a large blender and does sit quite tall. Overall it does blend well but does not live up to Tefal quality. Quick release for jug and removable blades is a good feature. I would recommend as nicely priced but be ready to periodically inspect fittings.

Poor quality noisy unreliable productI have avoided making any snap judgement on this liquidiser; but the final straw is where tonight it just won't work at all. This about the third or fourth time I've used it in about two months since new. I've used it to liquidise soup, and to make liquidised marinades.The jug and the blade holder detach for cleaning. I was careful to make sure the lugs of the blade holder fitted the jug putting it all back together. At first the machine was very noisy in use (& still was till it wouldn't work at all) Moving the jug over the motor sometimes achieved a quieter spot. Then on separate occasions the dial control wouldn't work at control numbers 1 to 4 but would burst into life at 5 or max (can't recall how many total settings there were) Yet the pulse setting would still work. Then tonight nothing at all. Diddly squat. I've checked the red button clicks properly into the motor receptor; swapped the plug across electrical sockets. Bar taking the plug apart and checking the fuse, I'm really beyond that exploratory stage, Its just been a long long day. It's now 9.15pm, and I spent 45 mins earlier carefully making some pea & mint soup for my tea (health kick!). It's just a messy option contemplating taking it all apart just in case its not quite right & refitting it together - but it all looks OK from the outisde? Well it's just sat there now in the jug, full of petit pois peas swimming in the hot stock like BB pellets. Bah humbug. No stick blender, no nothing. Its easier just to give in and never get this make again!!! I wouldn't buy this make again. PS Also be aware that Tefal advertise the spice grinder working with this base model in the instruction booklet, but it is not available to people in the UK!! I don't know if anyone else has had this problem, but will be returning the product as soon as I get some time free to do so.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Legislation
From 1st July 2007, all retailers of electrical goods must comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) legislation.
This is a scheme to prevent all such waste being disposed of in general landfill sites and to promote recycling of components and materials. The legislation aims to minimise the impact of electrical and electronic equipment on the environment by creating products with recycling in mind and encouraging reuse, recycling, and recovery of WEEE.
How do I know what product is "WEEE"? The definition of a WEEE product is one whose primary function is dependent on electrical currents to carry out the main function, e.g. a toaster. However, some product, such as a child’s soft toy with an electric circuit, is not classed as WEEE as its primary function is a toy. For further details on product definitions, please click here.
You may also take the item(s) to your local authority Civic Amenity Site if this is more convenient.
