The Panasonic MX-ZX1800 Blender is not just any old blender it is a super duper high speed blender…
I’ve been putting Panasonic kitchen appliances through their paces for the last few months as part of the #ExperienceFresh blogger advocacy and this month I’ve had the chance to get my hands on the Panasonic MX-ZX1800 Blender. The Panasonic blender is a high-speed machine which can crush ice, chop vegetables and puree whole fruits, making cold drinks, soups, dips, nut butters and desserts with six pre-programmed menus. It comes with an ice jacket to help keep cold drinks and frozen desserts as cold as possible until you’re ready to serve them.
The Panasonic MX-ZX1800 Blender is not only a good looking appliance it feels extremely solid and durable with a heavy-duty die-cast aluminum base which is not going to jump around whilst it’s blending away. The jug has a huge 1800ml capacity making it perfect for making larger quantities if required. It has a stainless steel 6 blade system which makes light work of hard fruits and vegetables, ice and frozen ingredients.
The instructions were a little vague when it comes to knowing where to start when using the pre-programmed menus but after a little playing around I gave it a good go, making an amazing salted caramel frappuccino (recipe coming up so stand by), a hot soup in literally 7 minutes and a really healthy and tasty sugar free frozen dessert.
Healthy soups can be made with minimal fuss by literally throwing chopped vegetables into the jug (nothing that can’t be eaten raw though), add some stock and then leave the Panasonic MX-ZX1800 Blender to do it’s ‘thing’. In just over 7 minutes you have a delicious hot soup ready to serve.
Parts of the blender can be cleaned in the dishwasher but as I don’t have one I found the most effective way of getting the blades and jug clean was to put a little washing up liquid and warm water in the jug and pulse it for a few seconds.
The blender comes with a tamper tool which is really handy when blending without liquids, such as when making frozen desserts, it helps push the ingredients on to the blades.
Probably because of its high powered blending capacity the Panasonic MX-ZX1800 Blender is extremely loud when in use but at least with the pre programmed options you can for the most part leave it to do it’s magic while you get on with something else.
The Panasonic MX-ZX1800 Blender isn’t cheap with a RRP of £399, but it has a lot of really useful functions meaning it will probably be used every single day, and I think the look and capabilities justify the cost.
