Summary: If I can put zero starts, I would, but I wanted to share with you all my review on this p.o.s. I wanted to make smoothies and with my second time using it, it took a poop on me. I put in spinach, bananas, 5 frozen cut up strawberries and water.
Summary: I have had this blender for about 4 years. Use it about a handful of times a year. Nothing hard, just milkshakes and smoothies. Put the pitcher on the other day to make a milkshake for my husband and pushed on. Black pieces flew and it would not work. The black coupler broke.
my experience seems to be 180 degrees from other revews

Summary: Got this at an outlet mall at deep discount, so not expecting miracles. We use it 1-2 times per weeks to crush ice for smoothies and other drinks. Have had for appx 2 years. Have not noticed any de-coupling of the blades to the connector. No rubber seals failing. Everything works very well.
Summary: I've owned this blender for many years. The glass jar broke once (while in use) & I replaced it. Then I had it refurbished in 2003. From 2003 to 2009 it worked OK. Recently it became difficult to crush more than 4 ice cubes at once, and the rubber coupler attached to the power base came off...
Summary: This blender cannot make a smoothie containing ice. An air pocket forms every single time. One spends a lot of time opening it and trying to push down the contents so the blade will make contact, which it then does for about 2 seconds.
Summary: Pros: Feels high quality Easy to clean controls Glass beaker Cons: Poor design doesn't deal with ice well Coupling is unreliable and needs regular replacing (every 30 uses or so). Who should buy this blender? Avoid this blender as it is a poor design.
Summary: The plastic coupling between the motor and the blades broke when trying to blend a frozen banana and milk. Seems to be a consistent design flaw. Overall, I'm not impressed with this blender. I prefer the Oster blenders.
Summary: If I had read the reviews before I purchased this blender I wouldn't have bought it. My coupler broke - the rubber part just doesn't seem well made especially when it connects into a metal piece.
Summary: I have owned one of the Kitchenaid 3-speed blender model KSB3WH for the last 17 years!!! This has far out lasted any other blender. We do a lot of entertaining and use this blender only for Frozen Margarita or other frozen type cocktail. I love fact that it crushes I on all three speed.
