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: i had bought two of them because they were a deal purchase, thinking I can keep one and let my college child have one....guess what? both of them died in the first use..I opened the boxes after the first year of purchase, obviously it was a future use..
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 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.
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.
Excerpt: I have to admit that I didn't use my blender much until this past summer. My daughter had stopped gaining weight and they were concerned that she was growing as tall either. Her doctor suggested we start supplementing her meals with shakes and that's when we realized how handy this blender really...
Summary: This is a smoking piece of crap (literally, mine just died and there is smoke coming from the motor area). Today was to be my 5th time using it, and only the 2nd time using the ice crush function (3 ice cubes). But it made a funny noise and then died.
Summary: I've had this for about five years, and just came here to see how people rated it... Not very well I see. I got this blender on a buy two for $10 promotion, so it cost me all of $5. I don't use it all the time, I actually rarely blend anything but I have my periods.
