Cook's Illustrated needs to run a retraction!

Amy L, Amazon
18 January 2015
  • Summary: Horrible construction. The top of the base got a crack in it, and the blade assembly is loose (which seems like a bad injury waiting to happen), so the contents of the pitcher leak down thru the machine onto the counter (electrical hazard much?!), and they also get whirred all over the place.

  • Summary: Replaced the same model which had made years of smoothies. Works as well as our old one. Would recommend to others.

Don't Buy!

Brian Nicolucci, Amazon
13 June 2014
  • Summary: Want to add my voice to the list of people saying this blender should be avoided until Kalorik fixes the cheap plastic bearing issue. You won't be sure when it will break and make your blender useless, but it will happen.

Don't do it...

DOUGLAS WEEKE, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: As mentioned before...I bought this based on a Cooks Illustrated recommendation but it sux. The blade assembly broke and left pieces of plastic in my smoothie. I came looking for new blade but after reading all the other sour reviews I'll put the money towards another blender.

Why CI rated so well?

SHO, Amazon
2 March 2014
  • Summary: I took Cooks Illustrated advice and bought this blender. OK, it is it a mediocre machine, but a mediocre price. At the time, it was all I could pay for a blender. Performance: If you are blending very soft ingredients, then it is fine.

  • Summary: Loudest mixer I've ever heard. Does mix as well as any. Cleaning is easy, comes completely apart. Looks nice on the counter.

Good performance, lacks build quality.

TNT, Amazon
10 November 2013
  • Summary: Blender itself did a great job… motor was plenty powerful however the bearings in the blades went out after only a few months of use. This caused the bowl to leak out of the bottom making an awful mess that you don't know is there until you lift the bowl from the motor.

LOUD!!

Maureen Kevlahan, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: Way too loud and not much difference between settings. It works fine if all you want to do is whip everything at a very high speed. And did I mention how loud it was?

Avoid this model - two failures before giving up

S. Trent, Amazon
1 August 2013
  • Summary: Purchased because of Cook's Illustrated recommendation (I believe they have since updated and no longer recommend this model). Blade assembly failed rather soon but replacement was only $7 so I bought two. Now the drive gear that spins the blades has failed. Time for a new blender.
