Rated 1 out of 5Â by Shopper738282 Product broke within a week of purchase
I do not recommend buying this product. The gasket broke within a week, oil began to leak out. I figured if it still worked I might as well keep using it but it smelled like it was going to catch on fire every time it was used. After 3 weeks the blade unit completely stopped working even the the base would turn on fine and spin. Do not waste your money on this product- there are much better personal blenders out there for around the same price or less.
On a good note. Kohl's was amazing when we went to return the unit. We didn't have the box or anything and they didn't question taking it back at all.

For starters: this product won't crush ice. So thinking that you could use this in a hurry
(as it would imply as a grab and go type of thing)...I couldn't (because I needed to crush ice in another appliance first). The design is a bit odd...the cap/travel lid handle doesn't move....but, the annoying flip spout (which kept falling into my nose!) did. I guess if you just want for easy mix contents it would be o.k. I don't think I'll use it much. On the plus side,,,it has semi-useful suction cup feet...and is small to pack away.

Bought 2 as Christmas presents and received a call from both people w/in a week of each other saying they did not work! Used them 1-2x that's it and when they used them black plastic would be on their counter after they were done using it...when they called me they both said that the motor blew out on both of them....UNEXCEPTABLE!!!! Now I get to return them and purchase something else for each one :(
Very disappointed, will never buy another BELLA product again!!!

Don't buy this blender. It was incapable of blending ice cubes. I attempted to make a smoothie with frozen strawberries, bananas, soy milk, ice and yogurt. The blender could not mix the ingredients. No matter how long I kept blending, and adding more milk, even taking the cup off the base and shaking, there was always chucks of ice and fruit in it. There was also an odor of burning metal when using the blender. I would suggest paying a little more money for a reputable brand.
