Blends everything I throw at it

Excerpt: I am so surprised this blender does not get better reviews! I have had this guy for about 4 or 5 years now and it is still running strong. I love the sleek design of this blender, the stainless steel bottom section looks great left on my countertop. And I was so excited to find a blender with a glass carafe as the lightweight cheap plastic carafes drive me nuts.
Excerpt: I have owned this blender for 3 years now. Have to replace. This blender was great at first, then the blades started to become dull and would not blend as well as when first used all within a year of use. The part where the blades are unscrewed cracked in the first year of use and it leaks every time i use it so i don't. It just collects dust. I would have to buy from company and pay shipping to replace blade part.
Excerpt: Pretty versatile and got a lot of use. Was really good for making sauces and pastes (pesto, tapenade, pesto, etc) but had trouble with frozen items and ice. After about a year or so of use the blade just stopped working and that was that.
Excerpt: Although we don't use our blender excessively or even daily, this blender never fails to get the job done when we do use it. I love to use it for crushing ice as well as making milkshakes and smoothies. All of the options are great too. I would recommend this blender to anyone looking.
Excerpt: I'm currently using the Black & Decker 5-speed Blender BL 1900 and I'm not terribly impressed with its performance. I admit that I did not really research blenders before purchasing this one and I'm sorry I didn't. I bought this one based on appearance, since it's nice and sleek and matches my other appliances. This blender is not very powerful. The foods get stuck on the bottom and don't blend easily. The blades are not all that sharp.
Excerpt: My husband and I received this blender as a wedding gift. It sat in our basement for quite some time before I finally grabbed it one day and started usingit. I wish I would have tried it out much sooner because I love it. I'd been using a smaller hand held blender orthe bullet for my mixing needs which didn't always cut it. While making my own baby food I found that many of the smaller blenders didn't chop through many of the items I needed them to.
Excerpt: Bought this for my husband to use -- he makes smoothies every morning. Didn't need a blender that had a lot of options. Did need a blender that could crush ice. The first time we used it, it wasn't so successful as the ice ended up in big chips. But we tried it again, and it came out perfect. The blender is a good weight, glass and feels substantial. It's a good looking machine and fits in well on the counter top with my other stainless steel kitchen appliances.
Excerpt: This blender works pretty darn well. My husband has used it to make salsa several times. I have also used it to make smoothies with lots of frozen fruit, yogurt and milk and it works excellently. You have to give it time, or make sure you have enough liquid in it to get eerythign processed down to the blades. But once you've mastered that, you'll have an awesomely blended product.

Excerpt: Its almost three years now that I bought this blender as I cook a lot and was in need of a good blender. It was cheap so it attracted me as I like other Black & Decker products too. Its solver the basic purpose of a blender however it is not great. I am planning to buy a food processor and will keep this for my basic use. The looks are good and it it not too heavy so its easy to handle and it doesn't consume a lot of space too.
Excerpt: I love this blender, I hate this blender. This blender and I have a crazy relationship. On the one hand, I love it. It is sleek and looks good. The blender isn't too heavy and is very easy to use. It makes a mean smoothie even though I use a lot of whole frozen strawberries and large frozen peach slices. It also cleans up very well. On the other hand, I hate this blender. I have purchased it twice and thrown it away twice because it broke.
