Summary: The first B&D blender lasted 3 uses and then quit. The motor just quit. The seller replaced it with the same model and it died after 3 uses too. Same problem. Granted, these are heavy duty uses. I blend up about 5 quarts of fruits, vegetables, and nuts once a week.
Summary: I have had this blender for 5 years and use it probably once a week for smoothies. I have had no problems except that it does get stuck once in a while with larger or hard items (like frozen fiberous fruit) but it does a decent job with clear ice. It is, however, loud.
Summary: like another user, the plastic "teeth" or whatever you want to call them, the plastic pieces that are on the bottom of the glass part and the base of the unit that end up spinning the blade, broke after about 10 uses, never blending ice or anything more than milk shakes. pathetic.
Summary: After less than a dozen uses the blender stopped working. We only used the blender to make milk shakes! I still have respect for other Black & Decker products, but this blender is a lemon. Larry Scott Walnut Creek, CA
Summary: I bought this blender specifically to make smoothies and frozen drinks. I assumed from "Crush Master" and the Ice Crush button that it would work well for this. The manual says no more than 6 ice cubes at a time. This won't even crush two cubes and one of the blades has bent.
Summary: I wish I would have read the reviews here BEFORE I purchased this piece of junk. Granted, mine lasted longer than some of the others (almost 18 months), but the end result is the same... a funny smell and then it just stops working.
Excerpt: I have got this blender for more than three years and it is still working in perfect condition. However, I am not a regular user, only once or twice a month. The blender was accidentally cracked by putting hot liquid in so now I try not to use it to blend ice.
