Summary: I have lived abroad for many years and have had this blender for the last, approximately, six years. It has been reliable and I am happy with it. I have crushed ice for ice drinks and have used it to make soups.
Summary: I decided to give 2 starts because the blender does the job, but for the price I'd expect the product to be of a higher quality, it's kinda weird that the jug doesn't fit tight, the gears that connect engine to blade and jug are made of plastic.
... my Braun liquidiser over 10 years ago and was delighted to see that this blade was still available
12 January 2015
Summary: Bought my Braun liquidiser over 10 years ago and was delighted to see that this blade was still available. Very German! The plastic teeth which hold the blade in place on the machine get chipped if you are too quick to lift off the jug after shutting down the motor.
Summary: Its the sign of an excellent product to get 10 years life out of it and then still have spares available. In fact, Braun still sell the same model blender as its so good. The first eventually failed to seal on the shaft and dripped in use. The replacement matches exactly and got me blending again.

Summary: Very easy to fit this new blade to my liquidiser and made a tremendous improvement, much cheaper than taking the blender in somewhere to have the part fitted or buying the fitting directly from the manufacturer.
