Summary: Bad choice on my part. I needed a blender for a recycling paper art project & this was at the local discount store. I thought the stronger motor would be better for my purposes & my B&D toaster oven is still going strong after many years. Not so for this item. The base is cheap plastic & will probably crack. But the threading & locking design flunks. It should be recalled before someone accidentally unscrews the jar of liquid (they unlock/unscrew in the same direction!
Summary: I purchased this item recently by seeing 650 Wats, 10 button option. In first day when we put plug somg come from inside and it put any quantity more then 1/2 LB it won't give proper results nor it's work blends. We have spend lot of time to base with this Item.
Summary: Sorry to give it a bad review, but two problems I did not expect with the blender: it is VERY heavy and I have had surgery__not successful-- on both my shoulders, and find it almost impossible to lift. Also it is VERY noisy.
Summary: 1st day the rubber gears wore out, the brace to keep the gears engage broke. The gears are made out of rubber and they say you can crush ice??? (so there is your main problem) ... Black and Decker usually makes good to great products ... on this one they saved a lot of money by buying cheap parts.
