Breville 800BLXL Die-Cast Hemisphere 2-Speed Blender : I asked for something like a vitamix

When our lower-powered breville blender gave out after long service, we first replaced it with a vitamix, thinking that was the best of breed — wrong. We found the vitamix flimsy in feel and unstable during use, and returned it to get this breville instead. It is a delight – handles a wide variety tasks with great efficiency, and i love the automatic turn-off on the controls, so that you don’t have to stand there watching it.

Very pleased with the product. The jar is large, and easy to clean. Best of all, the machine is powerful, so making smoothies with frozen fruit is a breeze. Only strange feature is the smoothie function, that uses alternating blasts of power – to chop frozen fruit – but after 2nd time through the cycle, it ends up shooting the liquid up the jar, totally covering the inside of the lid.

My brother is a serious cook so we tend to buy heavy duty equipment for him. This was the sturdiest blender we could find and he loved it from the start. He has used it numerous times over the past four years and it still performs as good as new. One star ratings because of perceived ‘pockets of air’ seem off-base to me.

I got this blender approximately a year ago after doing research and deciding i didn’t want to spend the money on a vitamix. Overall, i am pretty satisfied with the product and am happy knowing breville will stand behind their product. On the other hand, as other reviewers have said, there is a very obnoxious ‘air bubble’ problem that requires me to stop the blender constantly then shake and stir the contents. This makes making a smoothie a longer process than i’d really prefer. I’d say over 50% of the time i just take out my little magic bullet blender that gets the job done a lot quicker (albeit not as quietly as the breville).

I got this blender as a christmas present 2 years ago. I asked for something like a vitamix. I liked it immediately because of the power, how easily it chopped frozen fruit as my plan was to make frozen smoothies daily. I immediately determined that it was not as good as the vitamix because it did not totally break down greens in my smoothie but i still liked it for the price. Over time i started to notice that liquids would leak from the bottom. Now 2 years after having this blender it has gotten to the point that at least 2-3 ounces of liquid pour from the bottom during each use. This is disappointing because of course i am outside the warranty. Some reviewers have mentioned only removing the blade a few times a year, if i dont take the blade off at least every other use it smells. I think its poorly designed. Overall its been ok for 2 years but for the money i’d expect it to last longer.

Breville 800BLXL Die-Cast Hemisphere 2-Speed Blender with 67-Ounce Polycarbonate Jar : I have used it for shakes and smoothies and it really is efficient.

I love the one touch snow cone :).

The best blender i’ve ever owned.

This blender kicks a**my wife and i use the blender for smoothies and protein shakes, at least 2x-3x/day. We’ve burned our way through a couple of cuisinarts, and a few other lesser brands. This machine is rock solid, and crushes ice perfectly. Very easy to clean, and more importantly, very easy to take apart and put back together. Was a bit skeptical at first, given some of the reviews; however, we’re about a month into it and love this machine.

Every bit as good as a the ‘big money’ models, at 1/3 the price.

I’d not expect that it’s so quiet but mine one has different color of jar and buttom.

I have had this blender for over two years, i have also had the vitamix 6300 during a 30 day trial period and i would have kept it if i could justify the price and considering my breville could do most of the stuff the vitamix could do with some patience and time. Below are pros and cons and my honest review. Powerful 1000w motorbacked by breville, a well known company with a great reputation. Programs do what they are supposed to do. Options for blend, smoothie or ice (auto pulsate)lightweight yet durable container. Purchased for less than $200, half the price of a basic vita-mix. Easy to disassemble for deep cleaning. Replacement jugs and blades are cheap and can be easily purchased from breville. Cons:metal plating tends to peel, would love to be able to restore it.

This literally crush ice to powder awesome blender.

I have been trying to find the perfect blender for smoothies and some lighter duty kitchen work. It’s the best blender i have ever used. I was concerned that it would be super noisy with such a powerful motor, but was pleasantly surprised that it made no more noise than a standard blender. It was a breeze to use, crushes ice easily and cleans up easily. Highly recommend this model. Few things in life are ever worth what you pay for them these days, but breville has made a wonderful product here.

I got this blender for christmas and i love it. Obvious good quality and performs flawlessly. I love the very simple settings, which are automatically programmed to pulse correctly. Much easier to use than standard blenders with a zillion small buttons. I don’t know what to think about the user who’s blender ‘blew up’ and the user whose blender motor failed; i will report back if that happens to me. I have read the entire instruction manual; it does warn not to process heavy loads longer than 10 seconds. Any blender motor will burn out eventually under those circumstances but it’s always possible a couple of lemons made it through the manufacturing process. I hope that isn’t the case with this product.

I am very satisfied with this blender. The motor is very powerfull. The sharp blades crushes ice in no time at all. However it is taller than expected. The pull hole on the top brings it to the hight of my upper cabinets. Love the fact my smoothies come out perfect every time. Make sure not to over fill the jar. To much capacity may cause the lid to blow or over heat your motor. Had to unplug the blender and pore some out before starting again. The controls all light up at once and begin to flash; letting you know there is a problem. Saftey button on the blender and the breville juicer are great features. Had to use it on my juicer to turn it back on after a few minutes. After an automatic shut down.

I bought this blender to make vegatable smoothies. I find i can blend everything i put in it. I guess maybe the vit-a-mix may be better for some things but this works very well for my needs and the cost wasn’t out of the ball park.

The lid was too difficult to remove for my wife. Did an ok job chopping ice, but not smooth enough for our tastes.

Looks good work fine so far.

You wont be disapointed with this blender. I have tryed many others over the years and will testity of its quality. It has blended dozens of fruit smoothies for a year now with no problems.

This blender, quite simply, exceeds all of my expectations. Admittedly, i didn’t purchase mine from amazon. Com because sur la table offers me a substantial discount on all my purchases which comes in below amazon’s price and i don’t have to wait for shipping. I use my breville hemisphere daily to blend a healthy protein shake for my family’s breakfast comprised of a variety of powdered supplements (no chemicals or artificial anything, things like protein powder, powdered peanut butter, powdered super-food, true cinnamon (not cassia), etc. ), uncooked organic oatmeal, raw eggs, and almond milk. My last blender, a just-ok cuisinart cbt-500 i bought years ago before i knew better, routinely left me with ice chunks, bits of oatmeal, and the like. This blender delivers a perfectly smooth and velvety shake with hardly a trace of oatmeal, nothing else distinguishable aside from great taste, and especially no ice chips. Although i haven’t yet used it to blend anything else (we use our breville sous chef for the bulk of our food ‘processing’), i am betting i’d be highly impressed. Oh, and this blender is *very* quiet.

I’m writing this review because of my dismay at what some negative reviewers wrote. I’m not confident they have this blender. I bought mine 3 years ago and love it. I use it five days a week to make a breakfast drink of various cut frozen fruit and milk and i make frozen cocktails a couple times a month. This is one of the most powerful blenders on the market. All blenders are loud, but the pitch of the ‘whir’ is deeper than other blenders i’ve owned. First: it is beautifully designed. Without any effort, you just set the jar on the base and push a button and that’s it. You have nothing to line up or twist to lock; just set it down on the base. No worries about it falling over or the bottom falling out and spilling everything. No particles get stuck under the blades and there are no places for particles to get stuck inside the jar/blade mechanism. It is heavy and sturdy on the counter with thick rubber feet. It doesn’t ‘migrate’ at all.

BLACK+DECKER & Decker 550 Peak Watt Blender – I bought this blender as a gift and the person told me it works awesome and she always wanted a black and decker product

Original review:we use our blender at least 3 times a day, 7 days a week and it has worked perfectly for almost a year now. I would have given it a 5 star rating, except finding a replacement part is turning out to be a nightmare. (the piece that attaches the blade to the container – melted at the bottom of the dishwasher last week. ) replacement part cost: $15, when i could find it. Better off buying a new blender. Advice on replacement parts, anyone?it’s as loud as you would expect an inexpensive blender to be. Edited/modified review:customer service for this blender has been outstanding. The handles broke, (granted the blender is only two years old, but it is in constant use,) and we were offered replacement containers.

Bought it as a ift – my dad loves it.

Love it for the price it does what it needs to do i’m very satisfied. Here are the specifications for the BLACK+DECKER & Decker 550 Peak Watt Blender:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Ice crush button perfectly prepares ice for frozen drinks.^Stainless steel 4-point blades conquer all ingredients.^Powerful 550-watt motor blends
  • purees and crushes.^Ten speeds and convenient pulse setting handle all foods.^Easy-pour spout makes transporting drinks a breeze.

So loud that my kids cover their ears when i use it. You get what you pay for, and i’m grateful it works.

Used black & decker over a year which i brought in walmart wit glass jar. This time order online & did not like the plastic jar.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Five Stars
  • Plastic jar hmm no

Impressed with the smoothie function on the blender, works quite well in blending up frozen berries & such. Seems to have just the power that is needed to blend frozen items.

Second time i purchase this product. Since i liked it so much, i gave it as a gift. I know it will be of great use for the new couple.

This blender does a great job. The blade is sharper/faster than my old blender. I have used it to make smoothies and onion salad dressing, among other things. Chunky foods are well-blended and pureed. The pitcher is plastic, with a tight-fitting lid. The base is rather large, though, making the unit high – it barely fits under my cabinet, but does. Sometimes, when i seat the pitcher into the base, it doesn’t line up easily and the motor burns out for a second until i turn it off and readjust. I wish it was a little easier to seat correctly every time. The blade unscrews easily for easy cleaning. It is a great blender for the price.

Ice crushing takes a bit longer then you would think, but it does the job.

This product for its very low price does allot more then i was hoping for, and when it eventually breaks down i will replace it with another.

Makes good smoothie’s and milk shakes.

This works well enough, not the smoothest blender, and not that strong. But for a smoothy or for blending other soft or a bit hard things, its not bad.

Made a slushi with the on the first night with just ice cubes and some kool – aid. Was just like the same at the gas stations. Planning on using it to make some almond milk and other goodies.

The blender is great i use it everyday when i can smoothies and shakes i love to blend up all kind.

Hope it could have a long performance life.

This blender is good for quick (30sec or less) and light jobs, such as a mostly liquid mix with a bit of fruit or something added. I used it for a while blending protein shakes and it worked fine. What killed it was trying to blend some thicker stuff–a mixture of chia seeds, corn meal, some frozen fruit, and water (sounds delicious right?). I blended one pitcher-full daily for about 2 weeks, which due to the thickness and graininess had to be blended or a solid minute or so. I started noticing a burning smell that was progressively getting worse each day. Finally i think it had had enough torture and refused to start again. Rip in peace 2013-2014 u will b missed. Also i don’t know how relevant this is to anyone else, but if you happen to have other b&d glass blender pitchers it will probably work with this blender, which unfortunately comes with a plastic one. I had an older b&d (that also burned out, hmm. ) with a sturdy glass pitcher.

I’ve had this blender for about a year. Very simple design but it has many blending modes for all kinds if stuff. I’ve made frozen alcoholic drinks, soups, smoothies, milkshakes. But mostly i use it to make hot sauce with vinegar, hot peppers, spices, etc. While peppers, big chunks of fruit. Totally awesomeuntil yesterday. I finish my usual hot sauce deal and i take the jar off the motor and notice that the grey spinner guy on the motor piece has snapped in half. I quickly google search ‘bl2012bp parts’ only to find that this piece is not a wear part and cannot be purchased by itself from black & decker or an appliance parts seller or wholesaler. So it’s a quick dead end for my trusted hot sauce machine. I will be buying a nicer, more expensive blender instead. I’ll likely go with the cuisinart.

Great blender, it does the job.

It is very loud and sometimes you need to help it do it’s job.

I bought this blender as a gift and the person told me it works awesome and she always wanted a black and decker product.

Vitamix Vita-Mix Vita-Prep 64 Oz 3 Speed Blender : I don’t understand the fuss

This thing is very powerful. I can’t say that it completely emulsifies, but it’s close. Great for smoothies & veggie soup.

I bought this machine from jl hufford but didn’t realize that it was listed at “market place” on amazon. The shipment was quick and the product was in new condition. However, i might be the 1% unlucky customer since the motor gave weird sound. I called vita-mix customer service and confirmed that i needed to return it. Jl hufford gave me 100% refund for the machine but i paid the shipment. The refund was processed 2 weeks after the machine arrived at the company. The experience was not bad except that i don’t think i should bear the return cost since the product is defective. I wrote to the company seeking an answer before sending the machine back, but got no reply. Perhaps they tried to pretend not hearing from me. Anyways, i did not want to argue with them over $20.

One of the strongest vitamix, it’s almost the same horse power what i have on my old vitamix 3600+ 3hp vs 4hp peak, but in new design, well money spent.

It may not have the fancy knobs and buttons of the other models, but of all the vitamix models this one has the most power (3 hp). 3-year warranty vs 7 with the consumer versions, but if you are just making smoothies in the morning for yourself this thing should last as long or longer than a consumer version. Like some of the other users i did notice the weird smell it puts off with initial use, after a day or two this went away and everything is fine. Nice long power cord that you can wrap around the base to pick up the slack. Don’t be fooled, this is a monster of a blender. Not even in the same ball park as any of the other competing brands. There’s a reason why 25 year old models are still getting $100 – $150 on ebay. These things last and their monsters. I turned 3 lbs of whole raw carrots into soup in less than 2 minutes – no joke. I did not receive any discounts, freebies, or other renumeration for my review.

Hands down this blender does it all. I have been using the vitaprep 3 non stop, every day for the last three weeks. I have made everything from smoothies, bisques, soups and even ice cream in this baby. I bought the grain blade and i now make my own flower for bread and my own hot cereal mix. This thing is freaking awesome. Its a lot cheaper at jlhufford. Compros: it will handle just any job you throw at it. Cons: just because you can doesn’t mean you should. I have made scrambled eggs and peanut butter in this thing. The food came out great but the egg and peanut butter is very hard to clean off the blades – although its not recommended – i recommend taking apart the blade and base during every cleaning and get a good hard tooth brush to clean the blades.

I don’t understand people and their silly expectations with products these days. No i haven’t been a vitamix user for over ten years as i’m not a dinosaur blah blah blah etc. . The moment i turned my prep 3 on i knew it was outstanding. No presets no extra buttons or lights just variable speed and high speed. It’s built like a tank and performs like a fined tuned race car. Can handle anything i throw at it without hesitation. What else do people want nowadays?. Do they want the blender to cook for them too?. If you want the top blender here it is.

My wife using thses in her cooking classes. Believe me they go through the paces, and they perform well. She has 2 and they both are wonderful.

I bought this in 2007 when they were pretty new. It had an ugly container but works great. I use it about 3 times a day and for a year of this unit’s life, i used it in a raw vegan lunch cafe that i opened in the back of a health food store. Store went out of business but the vp3 kept on going. During that year, i used it at least 20 times daily. I am still on first blade and my smoothies are very smooth but take a little longer to make. Customer service is also wonderful.

It’s one of the best products a kitchen can have.

I have had mine for 4 weeks now and have used it at least 4 times a day. So glad i went with the 3 hp motor on vita prep 3 over the home model with 2 hp. I did not buy it on amazon because it was not the cheapest price. Do your research to find this model cheaper. 00 cheaper with free shipping and 5 huge bags of big train coffee/smoothie mixes free with mail in rebate. That made all the difference in affording this blender over the home model.

If you only expect and will only accept the best thing in life then this is the blender for you. This isn’t just for the chefs or the restaurants but also a blender to have for body builders. I work out twice to three times a day and this blender helps me to prepare my protein meals and gain masseating 5 to 6 times per day is very hard and time consuming. I use this product to blend my protein and fruits together and i can skip 3 solid food meals because of this blender.

My first vitamix was the first model they ever built, with the motor used in saws, still have it but i thought i would get the prep 3 because i wanted a machine that would do more than the one i already had, vitamix was having a sale on this unit (many many years ago) got it, use it every day, i am amazed at the negative comments i read here, my unit looks an operates as well as the day i first got it, came with 2 sets of blades, have not used the second set, and forgot i had it until i went to look at the recipe book, the clear plastic container is not scratched and i put ice cubes in it every day, i couldn’t be happier with this machine, for me it was a wise choice, i just can’t believe what i read in other reviews.

Have had for over a year now. Every morning my wife and i blend various raw veggies and/or frozen fruits for yummy smoothies. Ample power to suck all foods to bottom of carafe for ease of blending. Far better process than juicing. Blends roughage into delicious drink. And super ease of clean up, simply put carafe in dishwasher.

The vita-prep is really a chef’s dream come true. We’ve had it for 2 years now, and it still works just like the day we bought it. Smoothies are a breeze, and it will chop up stuff so efficiently that you could make juice out of just about anything. Whole carrots = carrot juice. This thing grinds up anything – nuts into dust, ice into gelato.

This is a very strong machine. Can make ice cream with frozen strawberries within 60 secs, and it is perfect. Just wish it came with a smaller container as well. The one it comes with is huge, and slightly awkward for making small amounts.

Please dont waist money with the oders brands i been use that in a restaurants for 15 [email protected]@ its a maizing.

I worked in the same restaurant for 8 years. The vita prep 3 was used ferociously daily for anything from gallons of soup, to colored oils, to emulsifying sauces to making pasta, making pesto, and lots of other stuff i can’t think of right now. We abused it on a daily basis. I can’t tell you how many spoon and spatula handles were chewed up by hitting the blade when pushing stuff in towards the blades, and we never had to replace the blade. During that same time we had many commercial stick blenders, and even commercial ovens that did not last as long. In all that time, we only had to replace 1 $20 gear. No piece of equipment in that restaurant was more abused and lasted longer, other than a crazy old robot coupe processor. That said, for most people who use this at home for a smoothie everyday or an occasional soup puree, the 2 hp models are more than enough and you get a longer warranty. I finally bought my own vita prep 3 a couple of years ago and it’s as awesome as it was the day i bought it. If you want a seriously awesome product that will last a lifetime, do not hesitate to buy the vita prep 3.

It’s the best and what i expected.

My neighbor across the street has a vita prep that is a 1-2 hp bought from a big box store, which has an excellent return policy. She uses hers for her morning drink and has had to return it 2 times. With that said, we use ours for morning drinks and on occasion for blending veges for soups, etc. We have had ours for 4 years with no problems. Yes, the large hard plastic carafe it comes with is not very sound, however, we are still using ours despite the hair line cracks. And yes, hard plastic does scratch. And scratches will show on clear containers such as these. And i do wish vita mix produced a glass version; however, i would never go back to my pretty lime green oster blender, with glass carafe, to blend what we now blend, which includes nuts and ice, on a regular basis. In fact, i upgraded because that blender began its last leg when we started blending drinks with ice on a regular basis during the summer.

But i got my first vita mix in the late 1970’s — the 3600 (which they claim wasn’t made till early `80’s but i know where i lived when i had it — and i’m 98% certain it was 1979). It was a 3+ hp and it did smoke when i abused it (by kneading bread dough at the high setting — didn’t read the directions). I used it off and on for years, sometimes stored it in garages or basements for a few years and forgot about it. It was exposed to bugs, animals and the elements for long periods, but when i decided to use it, it always worked. This past year i used it a lot for green drinks, smoothies, and sorbets. I like sorbets a lot and the frozen fruit is hard on the machines if they don’t have enough horse power. The green drinks and sorbets became part of my daily diet (i liked the raw family’s ‘green for life’ program) so i needed another vita-mix at my boyfriend’s house. I bought the 5200 thinking it would be like my 3600. The 5200 is fine if it is your first vita-mix and you haven’t experienced the 3600’s higher hp, or if you don’t really need the hp. I liked the metal container of the 3600 better — i could toss it in the dishwasher anytime.

A little background is in order so that i can establish to prospective buyers’ satisfaction that i know what i’m talking about. I’ve been a vita-mix owner since 1988. My first machine was a new 4000 bought direct from vita-mix that was still working perfectly when i traded it up for a 5000 ~10 (give or take) years ago. I’ve been very happy with my 5000 but it started behaving in a quirky manner–i discovered that this was due to the blade assembly’s having become loose over time (i’m going to assume that this is in part due to the fact that my smoothies push the recommended percentage of frozen ingredients to the limit and i blame myself for not noticing it at once). Fortunately, i have the special wrench for tightening the assembly’s nut but it was clear that the bearings had become at least somewhat stripped. I was loath to spend $100 on a new assembly or container with assembly and since i like and often make use of the 5000-series’ very low variable speed and minimum blending amount, i was disinclined to trade in my 5000 on a next generation model, at least not at this time. I’d been aware of the vita-preps (there’s also a 2-peak hp model) for years and was initially curious about why the prep 3 had a 3-peak hp motor rather than the 2-peak of the 5000-series machines. I made it my business to find out and will not only share the reasons but will compare the performance of both the prep 3 and my 5000. I recently ran across a deal online on a new prep 3 that was much too good to pass up and i figured that i could jump on it and still use my 5000 as a trade-in towards the price of a next generation unit should any disposable income find itself in my wallet (i freely admit to being an appliance junky–there are worse character flaws). Besides, there’s still a possibility of helping to launch a smoothie division within a company here and it might be better to pitch with a demonstration using the commercial equipment i’d insist on using.

Oster 6803 Core 14-Speed Blender – Love this my grandmother wanted

Recently gotten into green smoothies. I very much enjoy them and people kept trying to recommend the vita mix and other 300+ dollar blenders. Well this one makes my green smoothies just fine. However i’m so into the blending smoothie game, i’m not against buying those blenders one day. Anyways this one blends fine, it’s plenty powerful enough, with a high and low speed setting, combined with the 7 blending options. I tend not to run at the super highest speed, cause it makes my drinks have a metal taste to them. If you want to make your blender last and run it high speeds, then pulse blend with the highest speed. Don’t run for a long with that speed.

Thankful for that so that i can make smoothies. This can do the frozen fruit which is easier to make the smoothies.

Bargain buy for the price i paid ($21)had the same one for 12 years.

I do not use this often and when i do it is for simple things. I have used this twice since purchasing it and have been satisfied with it function and ability. The product arrived on time and in good condition.

We got this blender because we needed to be able to blend small amount of liquid. Nothing we owned seemed to be able to do this. The oster totally does what we need. The only thing i do not love is that the blender is a little scary off the blender body. It seems very tippy, and i except one day we’ll have a big spill.

The blender i was using, a cheap hamilton beach that still worked fine, if slowly, but leaked around the blade bushing in the bottom. I tried this blender at my sister’s, and loved it. It’s quieter and blends my morning smoothies much more quickly than the old one. Very efficient, and i like the compromise of higher number of speeds and lower price.

  • Really Really Good Value
  • Very Rugged
  • Awesome . . .

I wanted a better blender after my last one (with a plastic jar) broke. I had it for two years, but never really used it, because it couldn’t chop ice at all. I’ve had my new oster for two months now, i used it all the time. Strawberry/banana smoothies for my daughter (one banana, one cup of cut strawberries, one cup milk, and 2tbs malt ovaltine) and homemade frappucinos (1 cup chopped ice, one cup milk, 2tbs rich chocolate ovaltine, and foldgers instant coffee to taste). Way cheaper and lower in calories anything i’m buying at starbucks or mcdonalds. I’m sure there are more uses, but it has already payed for itself with cheap healthy drinks. Ice is chopped, smoothies are smooth, my 7yr old loves this. (she chops the banana and pushes the button to turn it on)just wanted to update. I’ve had it for almost two years. I use it twice a day, and i’ve had no problems.

Works perfectly for making healthy drinks out of fruits, baby spinach, carrots, etc. I think it is not necessary to spend anymore on those ultra-expensive machines to do the same thing. Depending on what you put in it, your healthy drink might be very thick, or even a bit chewy. You just need to experiment with it. I found that putting in baby spinach, big purple grapes, fresh cranberries, some cranberry or orange juice, makes a wonderful drink. If you don’t mind the chewiness, put in some carrots (use the small ones, it is easier). You could also add peanut butter, banana, cuties, or yogurt.

I like the fact that the jar is glass. The blender does what it is supposed to.

My first blender when i got married was an oster. It lasted for over 10 years and was replaced by a kitchen aide blender that costed 5 times the price. I’ve disliked the kitchen aide since i took it out of the box. I can’t wait to make a smooth margaritas or smoothie without chunks of ice or frozen fruit left after blending with the oster. It’s a beautiful blender and exactly as described.

This blender is multi purpose and works very well. I would recommend this product to others.

This blender is too good and we are using it since 2 months. We are using it for making indian food.

We had an older oster blender. I bought as a gift for my husband. He likes it a lot and of course better than the old one we had.

Product: glass jar, 4 blade, rubber top, plastic access lid to stir or mix up with dual speed i call high or low. Workmanship: i have one at my house (2 years) 1 at my work (fire station) 1 month. I never seen any issues, all parts (except motor) easy disassemble for washing in sink by hand or dishwasher. Price: is right to insure oster will sell many of these. Shipping: was 100% top notch, it was protected with the original box boxed with a larger box protected and for some reason i got free shpping but it was fed ex’ed to me. I’m 100% recommending this oster and the seller also.

I’ve owned this blender for about 2 years with ‘rare use. In total, i think i used it less than 30 times honestly. The motor gave out and started smoking. I don’t recommend this product at all.

Have had this blender for 4 years now and it is still going strong. I use it almost every day for protein shakes and sometimes cocktails. This blends huge chunks of ice like nothing. I had a big party and it made frozen margaritas all night with no problem. If their were a downfall to it i would say its that there is no pulse option. Sometimes to mix all the protein you have to switch it off and on a couple times to get all the protein blended. Not a big deal to me at all because it adds maybe 5 seconds to my blend time.

Strong ABS houseing

I’ve owned this for several years and it still works great.

I bought this for my son and he loves it. He uses it for everything that can be blended; which is more than i ever imagined.

Excellent blender , works really well and extremely cheap price. It crushed ice like there is no tomorrow.

Im using it daily and it works great.

I use this for my morning berry and sspinach smoothies and it works great, it’s a good blender especially for the price.

The blender was amasing very voog electronic i am happy to buy this item.

High-performance blender with 450-watt motor

 if you’re wondering about this blender, check out my video oster 6803 core 14-speed blender with glass jar, white.

I use it to make smoothies and it blend everything.

The glass jar leaks some times. I’ve checked the assembly and made sure parts were in the right order and place and screwed back correctly, but it still some times leaks.

I borrowed my mom’s vitamix for over a year, until she decided to go raw and took it back. As a consolation prize she gave me her 20 year old oster, which was adequate until i needed a part. After some research, i found it was cheaper to just get a new blender than to replace the part i needed. I was a little worried that i had been spoiled by the vitamix, but as a poor grad student – i wanted to find a more cost effective alternative if at all possible. This definitely fit the bill. If you just want to make a strawberry banana smoothie once every couple of weeks, then i wouldn’t hesitate at all. The good: oster has a solid reputation and this blender (and the 2 decade old one i inherited from my mom) makes me certain that it’s with good reason. For a reasonable price you get a glass jar (which makes all the difference trust me) and a blender that will more than meet the average persons needs. I use this blender almost everyday and my concoctions usually include any combination of frozen fruit, fresh fruit, some light veggies like spinach, ice and protein powder. This blender handles all of those like a champ.

We use it to make my wife’s smoothies. Powerful, not too noisy and handles ice with ease.

Every once in awhile i enjoy a protein shake; so every once in awhile i need a dependable blender. That’s where the oster 14 speed blender comes in. Just put in your ingredients, replace the lid, hold on and mix. ’tis best to use the intermediate speeds; if you go up on the high end speeds the blender tends to get a little. This oster oozes convenience. Easy touch push button controls. A scratch-resistant ‘glass’ jar that you can toss in the dishwasher. The 450 watt motor is more than sufficient (who in the world will be trying to blend their ratchet set, for example?). And although i’ve never attempted to crush ice, this product does have the stainless steel ‘ice crusher’ blade. Maybe it would crush a rib eye, but i’m not going to find out (although i’ve been known to do wackier things). So osterize your shakes, your snacks, your fruit blends, your veggie smoothies, your milk of magnesia constitutionals, with the oster 14 speed blender. Being mixed up can taste good.

Bought this as a replacement for an oster i had for over twenty years. I have kept the old one as it still runs beautifully and has a food prossesimg bowl so i can use them at the same time if two different functions are necessary.

Pulse feature for precise blending

Excellent for making food with curry. You can choose the thickness of the gravy because of the 12 different option you can choose (6 options, each can be slow and fast). It bears hot food too, not too hot but a little hot works just fine. Very easy to clean and very convenient to use.

Ok, but not powerful enough.

Love this my grandmother wanted it.

Works well as blender but don’t be fooled by the grate and shred buttons. It does not replace a food processor. As a blender it works well, well made. I trust oster products over the years. Have always been durable and long lasting. Only gave three stars as it is misleading to think it can grate or chop. Everything gets stuck at bottom and no uniformity unless you do it 2 tb at a time.

Merchandise was just what i expected,arrived quickly and safely. Will do business with this merchant again.

We originally purchased this blender 4. My husband uses it daily for smoothies w/ frozen fruit. It does a fine job of blending those. I use it for the occasional margarita; it crushes ice fine when liquid is also in the jar. I can’t comment on just ice alone because i’ve never used it for that purpose. 5 years the gasket and blade needed to be replaced. Since the blender is so cheap, we purchased an entire new blender rather than replacement parts (we figured the blender motor has to go sometime, but at time of replacement it was still going strong). We are 6 months into using this one and no issues to report.

Breville BBL605XL Remanufactured Hemisphere Control Electric Blender : Excellent blender

After using the breville, i have no idea why i wasted all of my time with cheap blenders. This blender has all of the bells and whistles. We made smoothies and i love the fact that it has a timer and goes through the various speeds on it’s own. Our margaritas were also great with crushed ice that was perfect.

Rated top of the line by americas test kitchen. This blender is rated up there with the quality and durability of the high speed blenders costing over $500. I enjoy mine most every day. See test kitchens video review.

00 does and and you don’t have to use some kind of stick to be sure it all gets blended.

The first one i recd didn’t work right so i returned it and amazon sent the replacement before i even got the malfunctioning one in the mail. Thanks to amazon, the return was easy and i love the blender.

  • Great way to improve one’s diet
  • Maybe this one will make my husband happy!
  • Great Blender

My wife uses it every day where it breaks down ice and frozen fruit to make sports drinks. It works wonderfully for the task. The first one he had did break down after 4 years of daily use but i really feel like we got our money’s worth given the high number of hours we put on the device. So we bought another of the same type.

Highest ratings from cook’s illustrated. Its footprint is smaller than the vitamix and it’s not as noisy. Very well made with an elegant design. Since it’s “refurbished,” i also bought the square trade guarantee to protect my purchase. My husband hated the vitamix. It has only two speeds, is loud and finicky. The capacity of the container wasn’t large enough for him to make orange juice. The breville definitely has all the features he wants.

I highly recommend the remanufactured breville. It works great and has an excellent price. I have told family and friends to go and buy.

Does everything it should, from soup to nuts.

I bought this specifically for making smoothies, because the blender we had was cheap and doing a terrible job. After a lot of researching, this seemed to be the only viable candidate that wasn’t a blendtec or vitamix. I’m sure there are some advantages to the more expensive blenders, but this was has been great. The different settings and auto-blend modes work really well, the counter is handy, and the motor seems good enough to stand up to just about anything.

This refurbished breville blender arrived in like new condition and perfect working order. The only reason a previous owner might have returned it is the slight burnt insulation smell it produces after about 25 seconds at high speed. Others have mentioned this with this and other brands of power blenders. This smell does not concern me because the breville is putting out an intense amount of instant torque from a powerful electric motor. I bought the breville to produce green smoothies and it does a spectacular job at turning a big handful of greens, frozen fruit, protein powder, ginger root, ice, yogurt, and some fruit juice and water into the major component of a really fun meal. I have even used broccoli in the mix and the breville did a good job at pulverizing it although greens are a better choice. Rather than going on a diet, i am working to change my eating habits, which is easy with these great smoothies. The unit has only three components: the lid, the pitcher, and the base. With the rounded pitcher bottom, it blends every scrap and is easy to rinse after use. The blades are attached to the pitcher and are not removable.

With much hesitation, i finally replaced my oster blender with this one. I did a significant amount of research on blenders because, after 18 years of using an oster, things have changed a lot. I tried to limit the amount of computerized parts to my products as it tends to increase the potential for costly repairs or replacement. There is still something to be said about manual or analog items. I reviewed many different kinds of blenders before making a purchase, but my main purpose was for smoothies. I don’t really care about mixing drinks or crushing ice. My maiden voyage with the blender was not successful: i made my typical smoothie recipe too think for the blender to handle, and i needed to occasionally turn it off and stir it–something that i had to do with the oster. I adjusted the recipe a little the second time, and it was too runny, but i didn’t need to stir it. The motor is very powerful and quiet when i use it for just cleaning.

I’ve used this product on a daily basis for almost 2 month now. It has 6 month warranty, but not from breville though. Warranty is from a third-party company that performs the refurbishing (with a breville licence obviously).

Good and we daily use it very light weight. Better than the 600 model but priced little higher.

If you want to make a snowball in summer then just fill it will ice cubes and let it do the rest.

Wife loves the breville rm-bbl605xl. It has been a performance machine, and the family likes watching the way this machine breaks ice down. It has not been a problem, from set up and running the first time, to the 16th set of smoothies that we have made. I would have paid full price for it in a heartbeat had i know how great this machine would have been. The over-heat protection feature hasn’t even been needed yet, but we haven’t let our children touch it yet.

I bought this blender after watching an episode of “americas test kitchen” where they review blenders in their equipment corner. This blender was the second place winner after the vitamix with similar performance at half the price. Refurbished but still covered by manufactures warranty for one year i highly recommend this blender. Unique domed base of blender keeps ingredients flowing giving you smooth results every time. I use this blender 3 times a week for smoothies and less often for daiquiri’s and always impressed with the results. Many different settings and modes. I love the loop in the power plug it makes unplugging effortless, should be one on every plug. Also love cord wrap base that hides extra cord. Best blender at this price on amazon can’t go wrong. All other blenders at this price range don’t blend smooth all foods and will leave you chewing your smoothie, just read the reviews.

I own an older vitamix and use it regularly to blend kale, cucumbers and other fruits and vegetables for a green drink base which i freeze. I was using an oster blender to mix up this base with protein powder and other goodies for the actual drink. The oster was loud and lame. I bought the breville after reading some reviews and i am thrilled. I haven’t used it to grind vegetables though i’m sure it would. I just love the way it handles the mix i put in it. It is efficient, relatively quiet, very sturdy, easy to clean, attractive and i just like using it. It’s motor isn’t as powerful as the vitamix but it is quieter and compared to the oster it is fun to use. It is a well designed machine.

This blender does everything. It has a digital timer to which runs so you know exactly how long the machine has been running. Thats a feature i don’t think i have seen on any other blender. You can just press the ‘smoothie’ function button and it goes automatically through the different settings needed to give you a perfect smoothie. I highly recommend this product and getting one that is factory re-certified saved me about $60.

I’ve been using the blender since september. I’m not sure if this is normal, but the blender makes a high pitched squealing sound when it is under any kind of load (1c water,. 5c milk, 1c blueberries, 2c spinach). It otherwise blends well, but i’m afraid to blend anything with more consistency than a liquid. I’m under the impression that i will have to utilize the 6 month warranty period.

This is a refurbished unit but it looks or operates like a new product off the shelf. High quality all the way, it’s powerful, and does a fantastic job with whatever i have used it for. I’ve owned it for about 1 1/2 years now and have never had a problem with it. This was a great buy on an awesome blender.

This blender has abour 6 settings for every type of blending but what i use it for is smoothies and i like the pulse setting. It has 2 blades in the bottom, one for pulling what is on the top down to the bottom and the other is on the bottom to make sure your concoction is well blended with no chunks. I must say that i have never had a really nice blender and i thought that chunks were normal.

I purchased this blender in june, and i am really happy with my purchase. I’ve been making smoothies everyday, and i am very pleased with the blender’s ability to thoroughly blend kale, apples, oats, mangoes or whatever i put in to make a truly smooth smoothie. I purchased this after i saw the review of it on america’s test kitchen. The six blades and curved bottom of the blender are key to making this blender work as well as it does.

Oster 6608-14-Speed Glass Jar Blender – Good price & good value

0 out of 5 stars osterizers rule, may 14, 2009i’ve owned blenders for decades. I started with waring but tired of their motors burning out and bought an osterizer 10 speed with glass container some 25 years ago. That blender finally died this week, the motor burning out (what a smell). Now, it was only 120 watts, so i suppose i was fortunate it lasted for around 25 years considering the punishment it got — i often made peanut butter in it from oven roasted peanuts, and it died making peanut buttersoon after buying my 10 speed osterizer, i bought an oster food processor attachment for it for $10 at a local store, and i’ve used that exclusively for grinding meat. So, in replacing my burned out 10 speed i figured i’d get another osterizer so i can continue to use this food processor as well as the two glass containers i have (i picked up an extra somewhere). I was pleased to discover that the present osterizer line accommodates the old containers, etc. Yesterday i made the rounds at the local big box stores and picked up the 6694 14 speed. The glass container is wider than the ones i had already, and i figure that’s a very good thing.

Perfect product, perfect delivery.

After about 20 uses, the plastic bottom cap broke. Unfortunately, it broke off when the blender was full of hot onion cream that it took me an hour to make. So i almost killed myself and had to clean the kitchen for half hour. It’s a pity because everything else seems high quality, engine, blades, glass cup etc. Update (6/14/2017): the company has started shipping blenders with thicker bottom caps. I bought one as a spare part for maybe $5 or $10. I’m talking about like, already 5 years ago. So i’m raising my review to 5 stars. Meanwhile i forgot i had written this review and i was astonished to see that not only it’s still around after seven years, but that people have actually replied to it to tell me that i should not use the blender for hot things. I am going to use the blender for hot things. Otherwise how am i supposed to blend hot things?.Here are the specifications for the Oster 6608-14-Speed Glass Jar Blender:

My osterizer lasted about 7 years. I’ve used it almost daily for most of this time. I started out with frozen fruit smoothies, but the last several years have been making smoothies sans icy ingredients. It has been an ear-splitting machine. If i’m hard of hearing prematurely, this machine is probably the cause. After a couple of years, the screw-on base cracked. I bought a new no-brand one which is sturdier looking and has lasted longer. After about 5 years, the gear(s) for my most used speed wore out and the motor would just stop. I’ve limped along on the other speed settings for about six months now, with the motor suddenly stopping occassionally. Last week i finally chunked it and bought a new oster blender, the cheaper and quieter.

It has a strong odor coming from the motor which can be offensive upon using it. My old one (oster) which i had for 10 years never dispersed any kind of odor.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great Blender!
  • It has a strong odor coming from the motor which
  • Bottom cap breaks easily

. I’ve used this bender several times now and maybe it’s a bit early to review it but for $24. 00 at walmart you can’t go wrong. I think it’d be better if they used a low gear ratio for the low speeds but manufactures want to make money on the ‘bottom line’ so you don’t get everything. Anyway it works good with some help from the higher speed range to get things started, it’s easy to clean and it has a heavy glass jar. If i run into any problems i’ll update this review.

I have pretty much every modern appliance & gadget a kitchen princess could ever ask for. My only problem with my purchases is that colors change so i may not want to display them on the counter. Such was the problem with my original 10 speed osterizer circa 1969, a bridal shower gift from my mom, it is avocado green. I wanted to share the counter with my white cuisinart food processor, green kitchenaid mini processor, green kitcheaid stand mixer, & white mr. The scarry part is, that original is still working to this day, 36 yrs. Later, & still crushes ice to boot. It stopped on me last year & after i checked it out, it was just a little built up stickyness in the base. Cleaned it out —– good to go.Well, i bought this one in white & it’s just as wonderful as the original. I knew i could count on oster. There’s very few changes, & the one i love is the new shape—–wider glass jar—-no doubt they listened to the consumer—-that was the only thing i might have changed. This baby is a great machine—–but then ‘mom’ is still a good old gal too. Buy ‘the name’ in blenders, & i hope yours lasts 3 1/2 decades also.

Grinds up ice and everything.

I purchased this ‘used’ blender as an extra for our camper. It arrived on time and well packeged. It was in almost new condition, the original packaging just a little dented. I was amazed at how well it worked, it was clean and everything included. I liked it so much i kept it in my kitchen and put my original blender in the camperit makes great margaritas.

Oster BLSTMG-B 8 Speed Glass Jar Blender : Perfect Blender for Us!

So far this item has worked great and looked great. I use it to make smoothies and i haven’t had it for more than a few weeks so i don’t know how it is longevity wise but it seems fantastic for the price so far. Low price and great quality.

My wife and i got the cusinart blender ($100 version) for a wedding gift. We didn’t really use it for a few years and then she started making smoothies. After about a year of making smoothies (one a day) the mechanism that makes the blade turned was stripped. Needless to say that i was irritated that a 100 dollar blender was shot after a year. I tried to fix it but couldn’t. It was a stainless steel peice of junk. Point of the story is that after i did some research i decided to give this cheap blender a try (bought at walmart). It’s sad but this blender works better than the fancy cusinart. I have only owned mine for about 6 months now, but even if it goes out after a year, i could buy 3 more for the price of my last blender.

This machine is well worth the money -it is not too noisy -chops ice very easily -glad i purchased it.

I purchased this blender in green (with a plastic jar) from the big “w” for super inexpensive. This model replaces a 25 year old osterizer which was getting a bit weak. The old jar fits perfectly on the new blender. This model is rated at 450 watts and it is fairly powerful within its limits, it is not a vitamix.For what it is it is fabulous, i make 2-3 smoothies /day and this oster is perfect for the task. It crates a great vortex, it is no wonder why oster has stuck with the same blade design through the decades. It just works and you, as a consumer, know that it won’t be obsolete six months from now. Want an inexpensive blender that works?. Buy one of these with either the glass or plastic jar and be done with it.

  • It blends, but it’s not fantastic.
  • Loud, vibrates, but gets the job done
  • WOW! What a Great Blender!!

Oster BLSTMG-B 8 Speed Glass Jar Blender, 6-Cup, Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 8 Different Speed Settings
  • 6-Cup dishwasher safe Boroclass glass jar
  • 450-Watt of Ice Crushing Power
  • Stainless Steel “ice crusher” blade for perfectly crushed ice every time
  • All metal drive system for lasting durability

I use this product every day for a protein drink. Easy to clean and car for, also.

Crushes okay – speeds are good – easy to operate and clean – oster is known for good products – should last.

What do we really need a blender to do?. Crush ice, mix drinks, blend smoothies. With that in mind i bought this very reasonably-priced blender. It does everything a blender is supposed to do and does it well. It is sturdy and dependable. The jar is glass – no weird plastic chemicals to worry about. Don’t throw good money away on bells and whistles.

This blender is fairly good, but it is not the most consistent blender i’ve used. Sometimes it blends stuff quickly and other times i have to use a knife to move stuff around in it. For the most part, it’s good for the price.

Bought it to replace an older one i didn’t really like. I make fruit smoothies in the morning for breakfast, usually with frozen berries and bananas and it does a great job. It’s a little loud, and sometimes does dance around the counter a bit, but nothing too crazy. I just put a dishtowel under it and that takes care of it. My mom recently came to visit and tried it and loved it so much, she took it back with her and i am waiting on the replacement now.

I bought this blender in particular because i use the same one at work for processing quality samples. The little bugger gets used almost constantly, and has never overheated, burned out, or broken down. Most blenders at this price point rely on plastic gears to turn the blade, but this is all metal. As long as you make sure the jar is properly seated in the base, you really shouldn’t have a problem. And if, after making your third batch of daiquiris, you should happen to put it on a little crooked and round out the base, oster makes replacement parts. They also make a variety of blades to customize by usage. I use my home blender almost every day for veggie smoothies, and it has never failed me. It even grinds up raw carrots without a problem.

So glad i didn’t get an expensive blender. I make at least one smoothie a day with this baby and it works just as good as the expensive ones. Love this product and the price. If i need a new blade or ring i can order that off amazon for super cheap too.

I use it to blend cooked soups and to chop bread into crumbs. This blender replaces a 25 year old osterizer. I was disappointed that i cound not get as good a product as i had privious. Under $200, all were made in china and plastic.

I bought it not expecting much for the price but this blender works great. I çan’t complain of how it works crushing ice, it has enough power. Is a little light at the base for the heavy glass cup but is not a big problem for me. It looks modern and stylish but if you are someone looking for one to use frequently, you should look to expand your budget. This blender is made for light use, as it is common in my home, for sure not for commercial use or similar frequent use expectations.

This is a decent blender for the price. Jar is substantial glass, blade assembly is all metal. I use it mainly for protein smoothies. Tasked with something heavier, such as pureeing a soup seems to be difficult for it. It is extremely lightweight, so i find i have to keep substantial pressure on the top of the beast with my hand while it’s running or else it will hop off the counter. It does start to emit a burning smell after being run for a few minutes.

Our old blender was pretty worn out and couldn’t chop ice very well or mix up the drinks my wife wanted to make. This blender is fantastic and we got it for a good price. I like the heavy glass jar better than the plastic one on the old blender. It’s quite a bit heavier, but easy to clean.

Great blender, i use it for a personal blender when couples with a small mason jar. Much more powerful and sturdy than the little blenders you see sold for personal use, that “crush” ice until the blades quickly dull, or the motor burns out because you didn’t pulse the little blender motor just right. This is a real blender that will last, and is much cheaper.

Ill keep this short and sweet, i was looking at those $400 blenders wanting to finally get a blender that would crush ice for smoothies. After some research and not really having the money for a $400 blender i bought this oster on amazon. Ive made about 6 smoothies and 3 ice blended mochas, and it blends perfect.As good as the $400 blenders ive taste tested at the warehouse clubs. Im so glad i didnt waste the extra money, this is perfect. It comes with a large heavy duty glass jar, no leaking, sharp ice crushing blade, metal connector from the base to the jar, and a nice tight lid. If i have to say anything negative about this blender it would be the base control part. It has all the speeds you would ever need but it is made of plastic. When you push the buttons for different speeds it feels like its price.

If you want a product to crush ice this is it. Bought it for my roommate for christmas and it mixes drinks like no other. Great little machine for what we needed it for and it’s not expensive.

Probably not an every day, major use blender but it does the trick for making frozen drinks, etc.

Let me admit i am a little frightened of this blender. Some others have written of the noise it makes. While it is loud, it isn’t so much that as the sense that it’s getting ready for blast-off. I keep a hand on the lid because the blender vibrates and wants to travel, and i just get a bad mental visual of the whole thing blowing clean off the counter. This means two things: (1) evidently the blenders i’ve owned in the past were weak weanie-blenders and (2) this sucker blends – you can see it hurling the bottom ingredients upward immediately. Beyond that, i like the large glass jar, especially the wide mouth which makes it easier to pour out whatever you’ve just mixed and to get your hand in there to clean it if you wash by hand. Cons: the buttons are a little weird, very close together and kinda cheap-looking. They don’t satisfyingly ‘click’ into place, they sort of ‘mush’ down. Also, it’s hard to get the blade clean because of its design. I use a clean toothbrush to really get into the tight spaces on the blades, but even that’s not totally effective.

Does what i need it to do and like that it is glass. There does need to be a certain amount of liquid for it to blend right so i normally have to add a couple tablespoons water. You are not paying for a ninja when you buy this so don’t expect one.

Adequate for nutritious food preparation of pureed or blended fruits and vegetables.

Breville Premium Plastic Immersion Blender, The immersion blender works great! The ‘food processor’ attachment is only okay

Excellent, easy to use product with loads of features.

Hand grip is a little large for my hand but is working great.

Not much to say except it is a great blender. Strong and powerful, easy to use. In a home environment 280w blender is more than enough, no slowness and it’s blending everything what we throw under the blades.

Comments from buyers

, Good blender, but read the caveats first!
, Nice and sturdy with a no scratch bottom!

We haven’t used our blender or food processor since we bought this. We use it several times a week, works greats and is sooo much easier to clean than the blender–.

The blade section comes off for easier cleaning – a real chore on my last blender. I make a lot of soups and the lower speed works well to blend without pulverizing. And if you need something more blended, the higher speed works well. This is a small thing, but i really love the plug, which has a little hole in it — this lets you pull the plug so easily without yanking on the cord. I wish every appliance i have used this plug. The grip is nice and the blender is well balanced in my hand and it will stand up in a pan without tipping over, if i need to stop blending and reach for something. The attachments are very useful, also. I looked at a lot of blenders before deciding to try this one and i’m very pleased with my choice.

Someone posted a review on youtube about this immersion blender and how easy it was to use. That may be but if you have weak hands or arthritis in your hands, you will find it difficult to separate the body from the blade shaft. I returned it and got a cuisinart immersion blender. It only has one button to push to remove the blade assembly and is much easier to use. Sorry breville, these old hands need easy. The other design attributes – handle and plastic around the bottom of the blade assembly are nice touches. If you have strong hands, you’ll probably like this one.

This has been used a lot for the last month or so. I can reach for it instead of our vitamix-knockoff and the clean-up is easy. I appreciate the higher wattage and the adjustable speed. Well made and the pieces and parts are fine.

Got this blender for my lady and she totally loves it. Although the applications are limited for this kitchen tool, the tool is extremely useful. We used it to make a pineapple puree for a desert. I would totally recommend this product for the novice to expert kitchen foodie.

We use the chopper function most to speed through prep of garlic, ginger, onions, nuts, spices, tomato dicing, etc. Using speed control for less or more fineness in chop. Takes seconds and replaces graters, hand dicing. Throw each item into holder cup to keep counter clean. The ingenious wavy top goes on in seconds and off, and on and off so easily. The designed handle works great for my spouse with parkinson’s and grip difficulties. Immersion blender used mostly for quick smoothies.

I’ve used this for soups and to chop. The blade doesn’t contact or scratch my pans.

After killing my braun stick blender by running it longer than 1 minute continuously, (ahem), i decided to upgrade a bit. I couldn’t be happier – an extra $30 bought a highly superior model with two blending containers, solid constuction, super easy to use, with two blending speeds. Performs much better than the braun. Note to self: you cannot run any of these stick blenders continuously longer than 1 minute.

I am very happy with the breville immersion blender. This replaces my disappointing, broken, seldom used cuisinart mini chopper and almost-run-into-the-ground magic bullet. I use this blender almost every day for a smoothie or milkshake style protein shake. I did try chopping some sweet peppers in it. Next time i won’t put it on ‘high’ for that. I have no complaints at all with this product. I hope you get one, too, and enjoy it.

I use this product a lot in my kitchen for soups and chopping. I like the blending canisters (two) which come free with the product. I would have rated it 5 stars except this it is hard to detach the wand from the power bass.

I bought this 2 years ago and have been happy with it. Here are some thoughts:pros:- works very well when blending foods in a pot (eg. Soups)- make smoothies well- very versatile. It’s really not only 2-speeds (high and low). If you adjust the dial midway, it will adjust accordingly to a speed in the middlecons:- when i received it, there were black marks and scratches on a few of the pieces. I exchanged for a new one, the new one came with similar issues. It’s not a a cheap priced immersion blender, so it shouldn’t come with dings and marks on it. – does not work too well with ice, just tends to throw it around whenever it makes contact with the blade- sometimes when making smoothies and filling 3/4 of the container, starting on the high setting will make content flow out the top even though you’re pressing down to avoid this.

I had this for over a year and it is great. It’s working great and, the accessories are very helpful. I am using it every day and i am very satisfied.

Comfortable to use, does what it’s supposed to do. Seems well made and practical. I plan on using it frequently.

Works well, but wish it was longer to use in big pots.

Your only as good as your tools.

The immersion blender works great. The ‘food processor’ attachment is only okay. You can’t put too much in or else it will squirt out of the top and make a huge mess. It isn’t great when making salsa for this reason.Most of it ends up on the counter. I have a system worked out at this point.

After looking at several brands, lots of models, and scads of reviews, i decided to take the leap and order this immersion blender. I’m usually tempted to buy the most expensive version of a product, but this time decided that having stainless steel and more blender speed options just wasn’t important enough to justify additional cost. I knew i wanted a container for blending and storing, and the fact that this model came with a chopper attachment was an added bonus. And from what i gathered from my research, the plastic used is bpa free. (i could be wrong about this, but what i read indicated that this is the case. I’m totally happy with my purchase, and i’m known to be extremely picky. I have a vitamix blender that i love, but the breville bsb400xl makes blending soups in the pot so much easier. It’s also perfect for blending one-serving smoothies when i don’t feel like messing with the vitamix. It’s the perfect size, easy to use, and super easy to clean.

Love the extra length and power. Only difficulty is removing the blender from the wand – perhaps it will loosen up a little with use. Takes two strong fingers, which i don’t have. Would not hesitate to buy again or as a gift.

Just received this blender, and i love it. So far i have chopped onions in the chopper (it did a great job), and made a tomato puree and smoothies with frozen fruit. I am very happy with my purchase.

Works great fast friendly service and product looks like it will last longer then most immersion blenders that i have gotten in the past.

We needed a new immersion blender (mostly for protein shakes) and i love my breville espresso machine, so we thought we’d give them a chance on the blender. Overall (and so far) a very good product. Only complaint we have is the mixing pitcher. But the markings are unhelpful. Clearly someone who is used to the metric system (‘check out the big brain on bret’) created this pitcher. It has both ml and oz but the ounces are marked 10-15-20-25 etc. I have a hard time believing a company that has sold kitchen products this long in the us simply overlooked the fact that nothing in the us standard measuring system goes by fives or tens.

Blendtec Classic 575 Blender – FourSide Jar : Five Stars

Great blender my wife loves it.

We bought this at bed bath and beyond as a trade up from our fourth nutribullet. The blendtec seems to be a mechanically robust blender that is more powerful/runs at higher rpm than the vitamix (forget the nutribullet). We were leaning towards a vitamix, but bb&b no longer stocks them, so this was the best blender we could get on an in store trade-in. In general we like the blender, but there is room for improvement. The digital counter has recently passed 500 (suggesting 500 smoothies thus now under $1/smoothie), but the cleaning cycle counts, so it is really more like 250 smoothies (therefore still over $1/smoothie). Pulse doesn’t count, but if you manually step up the speed, each step counts. So, i would say the counter is an annoying gimmick. I am sure it is supposed to remind us how much use we get out of it and when it is in the thousands we may feel good about it. But for the first few hundred, it reminds us how expensive it was. The most annoying aspect is cleaning.

I had a ninja blender and this thing could blend that blender up into bits.

I brought the magic bullet and my husband brought this one. The first time i used the bullet it caught on fire and melted. The first time we used this one we got restaurant quality smoothies in seconds. It’s a little loud but they all are. My mother in law has a vitamex and it’s just as loud (or louder) than this one.

  • This thing is amazing! I had a ninja blender and this thing
  • Great Blender!

I know i wrote really honest review about this blender(not sure where it went) and how i only got 264 blends before it started leaking- it smelled of burning rubber with each use and rubber shaving we left on top of the blender— i got in touch with the company today and they are sending me a new jar-so things are looking up- i trust they will do what they say— update to follow.

Got it for the old lady and i use it just as much as she, if not more.

Great product and a great price.

Puts all other blenders to shame. Its all about the motor and this thing is a beast.

This blender has been amazing. I am writing this review a few months after we bought and we are still so happy with it. Works great for shakes which is why we purchased. No chucks and really isn’t that loud either.

This blender was worth every penny.

Great machine, really the best investment when it comes to a blender.

Love it so much, make delicious smoothies every morning for breakfast .

Makes a smoothie like no other, you can even make powered sugar with this thing.

It can pulverize anything i put it in, from vegetables to whole fruits like a lemon, peel and all.

Blendtec Professional Blender, Worth every penny

It took an new life for my family ,with dysphagia disorder and masticating function not good. Tom dickson, for designing so powerful thing.

I love it, but don’t get it too full. It launched a blender full all over my wall, table, coffee machine and toaster. My fault, of course, for not heeding all the warnings in the manual. This beauty is powerful and pre-programmed to plow through raw fruit and vegetables with ease, making wonderful drinks and smoothies. I haven’t tried it chopping nuts or kneading dough yet, but i have not doubt it’s strong enough to do it. The recipe book is a gold mine of information and how-to on difficult treatments. The recipes are fun to try, well written and obviously tested thoroghly.

I have not had this very long but so far so good. It makes a great smoothie and mixes well. I uses it on the counter-top and it makes as much noise as one would expect and as long as you use the directions to put ice on top and softer items on the bottom it is effortless.

“A great blender!
, Great Blender!
, outstanding

As good or better than advertised. It’s a bit pricy but i hope it will last longer than the regular $75 to $100 blenders.

Omg love this crazy machine, it blends better than latest ninja i have them both and wow what a difference and supper easy to wash no sharp blaids to be afraid of.

Its the strongest best blender i’ve ever owned. Had a mild funny smell in the beginning use, but went away. I know most electric have that in the beginning. Great product and i’ve been using it at least once a day since i got it. I don’t think i’m going to ever stop or slow down using it like other blender, it just works too good.

The best blender i ever had. I would have given it five stars if not for the noisy part when operating it.

The blender works pretty well, but it’s a bit noisy and expensive. Shop around and compare before you decide to purchase a blendtec.

I mulled this purchase over for weeks before i finally took the plunge. This blender puts my old one to shame. The clean up is a breeze, no taking it apart.Just a little warm water and soap; pulse for 10 seconds and rinse. The icon buttons make this goof proof, just select the icon (soup,smoothie,juice, etc. ) for what you’re making and the blender does the rest. No pushing food back down or scraping the sides. And compared to a standard blender, the processing time is cut by at least 75%.

I made a celery and carrot drink which turned out great. Get real healthy now with this baby .

My wife was interested in getting a new blender and we evaluated vitamix and blendtec. We are very happy with our choice of blendtec. It a powerful machine that runs smoothly and without fuss shreds the toughest fruits and vegetable. It makes the greatest juices and smoothies. We used the receipes that came with the machine but now we have created our own favorites. We have used it for many different nut butter, sauces. The pre-programmed buttons are great and cleaning up does not require any breakdown and is super quick. We rinse the blending jar and then run on machine with tiny bit of liquid soap. We bought the twister jar for nut butters and to make our own baby food.

Only press one key can do every thing same as vitamin’s blender. Easy to use and very good quality and good looking.

Easy to use and cleandefinitely not leaking nor any signs of leaking. Some people have mentioned it bounces around — i haven’t seen yet.

Hope it last for at least 10 years, for the price i paid for it. Have had bad luck with blenders ever since manufacturing has been done by dollar a day workers overseas.

I’ve purchased the previous version ten years ago, i hope it can last for more than ten years without maintenance.

Great!besides voice a bit。.

You cannot go wrong with this machine…awesome, amazing, wonderful, incrediblethe ‘program’ for smoothies is out of this world…. I wish my whole life was half as good as this machinebut caution…do not jump into the machine, in order to improve you life, while asking your wife to turn it on. She might and then, voila…you’re a smoothie, and really, life as a smoothie, not so wonderful, eh?just get the machine and enjoy the device.

This blender is a solid machine which has been well thought out. I remove the rind of an orange and pull apart the segments (which i would not really have to do) & toss it in the blender with the other ingredients for my smoothies, and there are no chunks or stringy pieces after the blending is done. The orange is blended ‘smooth’. I do not mind spending a hefty amount when the results and capabilities of the machine are superior. My only complaint thus far is that the spatula does not have a hole in the handle so that it cannot be suspended on a rack beside the blender.

We are making ‘phytochecmical’ smoothies. Smoothies with whole seeds, pits or peelings of fruits & veggies. This is an excellent blender and has performed as expected.

Use several time a day everyday for making smoothies and vegetable juices.

Its hard for a middle-aged guy to get excited about a kitchen tool but this is just a terrific addition to my kitchen. . It looks very sharp on the counter, has excellent (intuitive and well labeled) controls that provide programming options as well as manual control, two large capacity jars and most importantly does a super job in blending. While loud, i believe it is noise attenuated very well. A machine this powerful rotating blades at a very high speed has to be noisy. In fact it is quieter than expected. I have no idea if this was a better choice than the vitamix, which i also considered. I think it is like the ford/chevy argument — to each their own. But i am sure that anyone purchasing this blender will not be disappointed in their selection.

No kidding, i use this machine every day. I begin my day with a green smoothie of various ingredients to stay healthy. But i have also made soup, pizza dough, cake batter, ice-cream and cocktails. Actually the sky is the limit and i do not see how i lived without it for as long as i did. Oh, i also got the smaller jars to make my own butters (peanut and almond) as well as spices and dips.

My blender arrived in perfect condition and i have used it several times and it blends like a dream. It took amost two weeks too arrive but apart from that i finally have my dream blender.

Excellent blade for restaurants.
