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
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!
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.
Summary: Very nice blender. I had a little trouble when I tried to puree some white beans in it, but it worked. However, it is not a food processor. It has a heavy duty glass container, which I like. Great for liquids or a milkshake. It was easy to take apart and put together the blades and bottom to clean it thoroughly. It is nice looking black and stainless that goes well on the counter if you want to leave it out.
Summary: This is a sharp-looking blender with its modern, stainless steel base (not sure if it's real stainless but looks it) and genuine glass container. It only has low, high and pulse choices but that's enough choices for us. We primarily make smoothies and shakes in it. Looks great on the countertop and the price is right, especially compared to some of the other brand names I looked at.
Summary: If a simple blender is all you're looking for this one is OK, but the lid is made of chintzy plastic and is hard to get on and off without making a mess. The controls are simple, but do the job for making smoothies or frozen drinks. All in all a decent value. Would probably buy again, since I just need it for simple blending.
Pros: easy to use controls
Cons: lid was made of chintzy plastic and hard to get on
Summary: Saw this blender review in Consumer Reports. We have been very pleased with this purchase. The blender is no frills, plenty of power, easy to clean, and looks good on our counter top. We have used to make smoothies, blend berries, and general cooking purposes. No complaints. Very reasonable cost for a great blender.
Summary: I ordered this product because my daughter likes to make healthy protein smoothies. My husband tasted one the second day after we received the bkender, and asked me to make one for him. The ingredients spa shed out of the bottom of the container and black soot like material was left on my white counter. I quickly went to Kohls and exchanged this one for another, which is working fine.
