Summary: I had a bigger one, that also had turbo. Maybe I did not realize enough that this one was a lot smaller and did not have the speed I was used to. I can easily blend all kind of things, only not the whole batch. That's why I gave this 3 stars, but the quality is perfect.
Summary: I still couldn`t try the blender out because it`s meant for my country house where I still have to go, but all peaces arrived perfectly. Since it`s voltage is meant for this country house, and doesn`t fit the voltage here, I will have to wait to go there first to see if the blender is working.
Summary: I went with Braun for its good reputation but was very disappointed with the product design , when it worked it worked well but to assemble the handle to the various parts was cumbersome and the connection spot was plastic (on the handle portion where the lower parts attached for blending, whipping etc) which cracked after 2-3 uses and would not work any more. This was a 220 appliance and I had bought it for use overseas left me handicapped for the rest of the stay.
