Really a fast blender!

Excerpt: I was a bit skeptical to buy this blender because of its rather high price tag. finally, I was able to buy this one thanks to a coupon I got. Blending PowerIt crushes everything you put into it with gusto. It has an amazing blending speed that will leave you awestruck.
Summary: Like other reviewers, after limited light use the blade gasket had a complete meltdown. You can no longer buy a new blade assembly, so had to buy a whole new jar / blade together. Now, after just more than a year of light use, the second blade gasket has had a complete meltdown.
Excerpt: I absolutely love this blender. At first, I wasn't sure if I should purchase this blender since the price is higher than I would normally pay. I found a coupon and purchased this blender.Blending PowerI would say this blender has very high blending power.
Excerpt: This is the best blender on the market in my opinion. I was hesitant to purchase it because of the price, but we used a coupon and decided to give it a try. It is perfect. My husband uses it for smoothies and it crushes the ice perfectly and evenly.

Excerpt: This blender is perfect for all of our kitchen needs. We use it for smoothies, to make baby food, or adult beverages. We love it and would recommend it to anyone because of it's versatility in the kitchen and durability. It is super easy to clean which is a plus for a busy mom.
Summary: I bought this blender at a grocery store (BB550XL) not knowing it had been discontinued. We were happy with it though we'd only had a few months when I broke the blender jar. I spent hours on the internet looking for a replacement jar but could not find one.
Excerpt: Breville makes great products! I have never had an issue with any of their products! I highly recommend them!DurabilityI accidently dropped my friends Breville Blender once and it was a hard hit but when I picked it up it had a few scratches but nothing was broken and it still worked great!
Summary: I purchased this blender after my Kitchenaid died leaking black oooze. I have used this blender less than 50 times. I was making a smoothie with ice, milk and mocha syrup. I have always carefully used the auto pulse to start crushing the ice so I would be gentle on the blender.
