Summary: After a while of usage the gear melted!! the plastic part attached to the glass melted and when I wanted to go and buy that specific part I almost cry because of its price, with a little more I could buy a new one instead of just the part melted.

Summary: We have a 13 year old Hamilton Beach blender that we purchased from a restaurant supply company as we were selling our restaurant. It is still going. We had a need for a second blender and thought we would stick with what served us so well. This is a completely different animal.

Summary: Very disappointed in this product. I still have the older Hamilton Beach model #1C909 MADE IN THE U.S.A., which is so much more efficient then this new one I ordered. I can not understand why you call it a COMMERCIAL BLENDER.
Summary: I got a more expensive blender and ended up taking it back after my sister-in-law told me she had the Hamilton Beach Commercial Bar blender for 14 years and she still loves hers. I bought it, and I am sure I will enjoy this blender for a long time as well!
