Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chaz1958 My second purchase of this item as a gift
The blades are extremely sharp so be very careful while handling this section of the blender. The only downside to my experience with this item is the lid itself. Two small, L-shaped pin, are attached to the locking mechanism to lifts up and down. Both of my eventually just fell out and I could not figure out how to re-engage these very small items back where they belonged. Once both pins fell out, the lever that lifts up and down (on the lid itself) complete detached. I am still able to use the product (by placing the lever back in place to lock the lid down for use) but it is no longer attached. This seems to be a recurring problem with this design and really needs to be improved when one is looking at the retail price of this blender.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by frednaz Great Blender but does not hold up
Owned for about 3 1/2 months, use almost everyday.
Excellent motor and multi-blades blend frozen drinks fast.
Problem is with pitcher & lid: lid is not made well... gaskets, locking latch and spout cover have all excessive wear or broke. Pitcher is clear plastic and is clouding and rim is warping. Manual says dishwasher safe, but 90% of time I wash by hand with mild soap & sponge.... this should hold up better!
PRO: Called manufacturer and they agreed to send me a new pitcher & lid. However, even with proper use & care I don't see them as long-lasting. Therefore, not a good value even with the excellent blades & motor.
