It’s A Juicy Summer

The temperature’s rising and it’s time to dust off your smoothie and juicing skills. Create fresh and healthy treats to enjoy on the go, to cool down after a workout or as an afternoon treat. If you’re in need of a new blender or juicer, you’re in luck! Sunbeam and Breville have some great blenders and juicers that will delight no matter your needs and lifestyle.

Sunbeam’s NutriSeal™ Vacuum Blender
The powerful NutriSeal™ vacuum technology releases air before blending so that flavours are retained and your drink stays fresh for up to 24 hours. As air is removed, smoothies and juices are consistently blended, preserving textures without any separation as you would see with traditional blenders.

The NutriSeal™ Vacuum Blender is a time-saver, as you can blend the night before and enjoy the next day with the same flavours and freshness.

Breville’s The 3x Bluicer Juicer Pro
Juice ingredients and then blend your creations with the one appliance with Breville’s The 3x Blucier Juicer Pro. This versatile, convenient and space saving unit lets you blend, juice and bluice, so you can whip up fresh fruit juices, smoothies or icy frozen drinks and cocktails for entertaining.

Five pre-set functions makes it a breeze to quickly make your treats. Powerfully crush ice with the
Pulse/Ice Crush setting while Auto Clean ensures cleaning up is simple.
