Three months ago, I was browsing through my IG feeds and stumble at Lazada Supermoms’ giveaway post of this item. I rarely join a giveaway, but I cannot pass on this one because the mechanics are easy. Like the post, comment a name of a Fukuda brand appliance and then tag a friend. That time, we just bought a Buy 1 Take 1 Fukuda Electric Stand Fan on their website and so I commented about it. The day came that they announced the winner and this direct message is what I received when I check my IG.
I was really surprise because of all the comments in that post, mine was picked. I won! It was a very lucky pick as it was a random one. This is my third online giveaway winnings. The first one was a long long time ago, that was a gift check for a shoe store, a peep shoes (which is already in care of my sister) and the second one was on year 2014, a Rainbow Loom Bands from LaninaFashion store in IG (I won 5 packs of LE bands by picking from customers at random too!). And I must say it’s very very rare to happen.
My package was delivered to me about a month in waiting. Lazadamoms CS (Customer Service) just told me that they were fixing the shipment for the package and will update me ASAP about it. I didn’t complain as it was just a prize and not one of my online shopping. If it was my shopping, I would probably be pissed not getting it within the said 1 week notice if its a provincial delivery.
Fukuda Personal Blender or FPB-600 as its product code, is a powerful blender. It is great for smoothies, diet shakes and protein drinks. It’s a kind of shake and go type of blender because, the top cap can be replace with a lid after blending, so you can carry it anywhere. I got the blue one, even though the Lazadamoms post says, winner will get the violet. I would love to have the purple since its my favorite color. But I didn’t complain again! as it was only a prize. I didn’t even bother to tell their CS about it, probably because, my excitement is spoiled by too much time waiting for it to come.
Here is what’s inside the box.
Blender is sleek has a nice shape and sturdy looking. It has no button to press when blending. the blending containers will be the one to press it inside when you blend. To me, it’s a nice idea, because I have kids who you all know, kids like pressing on buttons they see. It will prevent them from doing it. The sort of handle at the top is also nice, because you can carry it there to transfer in different places in the house, it’s kind of handy.
These is the blender blade cap. I called it the blade cap because it act a cap lid on the container when blending. It is place upside down on the blender so the contents can be mixed. As you can see, the blades aren’t too sharp but thick. I believed it was made as it is to withstand the hardness of ice when you incorporate it on your mixing drinks. It somehow reminds me of the blades that were used in blending coffee beans on a regular blender. It was very effective as I have tried it with my rock hard ice cubes straight from the freezer.
Here is what the back of the cap blade looks like. The white part inside is the one pressing the button of the blender (inside the shaft) to spin the blade. The off-white part with four wedged is where the blade is attached. The blender uses AC 220V / Hz: 50-60 Hz / Watts: 300w of power. In my experience in blending fruits to smoothies, I just press 1-2 times and my fruits with ice becomes liquidy already. The rotation is very fast if its judging to my hearing senses.
Drinking/Blending containers and lids.
Capacity of the containers is 20 oz. It is BPA Free, reusable, dishwasher safe and easy to clean. It has a nice grip on the body with its curves that fits to your hand when you hold it. I was expecting one bottle could be open on the bottom, but both (including the spare bottle) are close, and the blade cap should be attached on the upper part of the container lid. Unlike the picture on the box which one container is upright with the lid and the blender cap blade is positioned at the bottom. It was misleading. I was also hoping this is unbreakable for when it breaks, I am not sure if there will be available containers to replace it.
Last but not the least, but still a very important part of the contents of this product is the lid. Which in this case very disappointing to me. I am not sure if all of these are the same on all products of this type, but both of the lids on what I got are all problematic. The cap are perfectly fitting the containers, except, the rubber type stopper on top of the lid where we supposedly sip doesn’t hold the contents from dripping when it is closed. It was too shallow and easily opened when you turn the container sideways and most importantly, upside down. It supposed to hold when they classify this as sports bottle right? But no, it doesn’t. It was way to weak, as you can see, the rubber doesn’t even fill the hole properly. And it is too narrow to fit though the holder on the lid is amazing, very handy and same design as the blender holder.
The overall performance of the blender is perfect. The only problem I see with this product is the lid. I cant even put it inside my freezer lying because I am afraid that it may leak, and it does (I tried it once). Maybe if they didn’t make it with holes and make it just a regular lid, I can give it a 5 star. But since this lid doesn’t work for me, that makes this product a less of a star for me. Yes I would recommend, but make sure you bought it on a physical store where you can check on the lids and avoid the hassle of returning it back when you decide to bought it online and get the same as the ones I got.
