Summary: The plastic jug and fittings have a noticeable smell of "plastic" and it taints the liquidated juice. Have tried washing several times in the intensive cycle of the dishwasher, but the jug it still has a plastic smell.
Excerpt: I bought this machine to blend my babies food in when he moved onto purees. I thought it would be quite robust with it having the ability to crush ice and the pulse option. It seemed to take forever to work and was so noisey I thought it would wake the baby !
Summary: Bought July 2013 and now needs replacing Jan 2015, just 18 months later. It has solely been used very lightly to blend raw vegetables with hot water to make a purée to which is added chopped raw lamb heart (for part of our lurcher's raw diet), only about 300ml in total.
Summary: I have had two of the exact same blender. The first broke mid-blending with spinach juice, and went all over the kitchen wall, and the replacement has just done the same, only five months after it was sent out. This time chocolate protein shake went everywhere.
Summary: I've had this blender for nearly 3 years and the plastic has warped out of shape. It's at the bottom around the blender so now it leaks every time I use it. There's no way to fix it so sadly it has to be binned. For the price of this blender I would have expected it to last longer.
Pretty great at first but broke in less than 3 months!!

Summary: My husband bought this for me after we did extensive research on a good blender that wasn't a bunch of money. We just moved to the UK from the US and had to leave our beloved Ninja back in the states since it wouldn't work here.
