piece of junk

Tomassio22, Amazon
31 August 2012
  • 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. then you read about motors burning out. give me a break. avoid. i'll never buy another black and decker product ever again.

awful and black decker won't back it up

Somo, Amazon
17 July 2012
  • 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...I called black and decker and they refused to back up their product. I should have checked the rating before even wasting a bit of money....I told B&D that the review sucks on this product but no back up....

Do not buy this blender

Larry Scott, Amazon
30 May 2012
  • 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.

Had it five years and still working

B. Moores, Amazon
10 June 2011
  • 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. I was a bit shocked with all the negative reviews here. I don't pay a lot for blenders and this is the best one I've had for the price.

ok

Azuleelan "Azu", Amazon
19 February 2011
  • 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. Now I'm on my smoothie period and this thing handles frozen fruit very well. It takes me about 5 seconds to get a perfect smoothie (two pints actually) using a cup and a half of frozen fruit and veggies.

Lasted less than 6 uses - then motor died

Cara Hackett, Amazon
26 June 2010
  • 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. In the blender there were: 3 ice cubes, 2 handfuls of spinach leaves, 1 banana, 1 cup of raspberries, and some almond milk. Yep, a smoothie.

Useless

Mali, Amazon
9 December 2009
  • 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. Also, the motor is so very loud, it's painful.

Cheap plastic "teeth" on the base broke off in multiple places

ElizabethB, Amazon
12 October 2009
  • Summary: The black plastic "teeth" that connect the base to the blade assembly broke in several places during use, made a terrible noise, and the pieces fell all over the counter when I removed the jar. Despite the name, and the claim, that this blender can crush ice, I've never used it for that purpose. I make smoothies, blend pesto sauce, and puree cooked vegetable and blackbean soups. Any blender should be able to easily handle such tasks.
