... had this for about 9 months now and I love it! I use it mainly to make smoothies

Dawna B, Amazon
27 January 2015
  • Summary: I have had this for about 9 months now and I love it! I use it mainly to make smoothies. I don't use ice as I use frozen fruit but it doesn't seem to have a problem chopping them up. The reason it got 4 stars rather than 5 is that I do have to stop the blending and push the fruit down to the bottom to make sure everything gets blended and I don't think I should need to do that. But, that's a small inconvenience and it works wonderfully well in all other aspects.

I would avoid this brand simply because of the poor parts support

  • Summary: I have the predessesor to this model, the BL 16909 purchased in 2009. The blade assembly is leaking and they no offer the parts. This would not happen with an Oster, for which parts for a 5 year old or even 10 year old blender are readily available. I would avoid this brand simply because of the poor parts support. I have what could be a perfectly serviceable blender that really is not that old and I will likely have to throw in the trash. Frustrating.

  • Summary: if you don't need all of the buttons and bells and whistles on most blenders, and you're just looking for a powerful blender to make smoothies this is your guy.

it smells like burning metal

Sarah Winter, Amazon
25 August 2014
  • Summary: Don't buy this blender!! Mine started leaking after a couple months (and I only use it about once/week). Every time I use it, it smells like burning metal. It sounds as if a jet engine is taking off from your kitchen. Not worth the money-- I wish I could give mine back.

Six blades are great.

MDRReview, Amazon

  • Summary: The top is hard to get seated. The measurements on the side of the jar start out too large (e.g. ml starts at 250ml) and increment too large (again by 250ml). Otherwise it is a fine unit. Looks nice on the counter top also.

Cheap, Low Quality all for a high price!

  • Summary: The lid is flimsy thin plastic and doesn't fit on properly. The opening at the bottom of the blender glass is the wrong size for the hardware which means that its hard to put the blender on the base AND the liquid spills out of the blender because it doesn't seal. I am shocked at the ridiculously poor quality of this item - it is an "online exclusive" because if you actually saw in before you bought it you would NEVER buy it!
  • Cons: cheap low quality, parts do not fit together properly, leaks all over

Simple and perfect!

  • Summary: I laugh at myself every time I use this, because I can't believe how many decades I put off buying a new, modern blender! We make fruit smoothies every morning and have been using a 20-year-old blender for much too long. The Kalorik blender is modern, fun, and simple! It does the job right without all the fancy bells and whistles, and in half the time as our old blender. Great price too!

Material not as expected

ellbell, Kohls.de
12 August 2012
  • Summary: Thought the price indicated better quality in material used. Found the connecting part that turns the blades to be made of plastic. Questioned ability to crush ice adequately. Returned to store.
