Amazon.com Review

This appealing blender looks great, with a rounded triangularshape that marries form and function. It pours perfectly and cleansbeautifully, but what we noticed first was the terrific grip on thehandle: firm and comfortable, like a great handshake. The lid is alsowell designed, sealing easily and snugly, with tiny rubber tipsattached on three sides to facilitate a smooth release and opening.This blender packs a lot of power, puréeing in seconds andturning eggs and oil into mayonnaise in fewer than two minutes. Fivespeeds let you whip up everything from chunky salsa to velvety soups;there's also a pulse mode when you need an extra surge to add solids orgive something one last stir. As a bonus, this blender looks great onthe counter or stores easily in two parts in the cupboard. --C.Whitney-Ward

Editor's Choice:Braun's PowerMax blender is an ideal firstblender--not too expensive and still heavy-duty enough for manyblending tasks--and is our pick for best blender under $50. It has fivespeed settings and a pulse feature. The blades are made of stainlesssteel, which makes them strong enough to crush ice (don't pack the icetoo tight, though), and they remove easily for cleaning. The blades,jug, and lid go in the dishwasher, while you wipe the base by hand witha damp towel. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Rated the Number One Blender by Consumer Reports
I bought this blender because of the review it got in Consumers Reports Magazine, an unbiased point of view. We use it everyday to make smoothies and baby food and couldn't be happier with the product. I received the product without the lid when I ordered from Amazon so I contacted Braun as Amazon suggested and the lid was delivered that week.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent blender
I know there are others out there like me: when I want to buy something, I want to buy the best. Naturally, I go for the top of the line. That usually means paying more for better quality. My reasoning is to spend a little more and I won't have to buy another one for years to come.

I'd been meaning to buy a blender for sometime now. After some hunting through the most well-known "consumer reporting" magazine, I discovered that this $50 blender, mixed, chopped and crushed ice better than models that were EIGHT times as much. This model is the best I've ever used.

Ice crushing was the key factor in the purchase. This baby crushes it in a few quick pulses. Frozen drinks are ready in less than 30 seconds. I use mine for protein shakes and it's a snap to clean. The key is cleaning it immediately.

I must stress that you can't find a better value for your money. This blender is amazing!

1-0 out of 5 stars So many problems!!!!
I know I can always rely on Amazon reviews to be correct and concise. I wish i'd read reviews on this blender before we bought it at Sam's club. Within weeks of buying the blender all the plastic pieces broke off! There was much blame going on in my home....now I see that quite a few people who bought the Power Max had the SAME exact problem!!!! I called Braun today and I expect to receive my free replacement part within 2 weeks. I hope that the blender works though I have my doubts. I will think twice before buying another Braun product!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Customer Service?
I do not own this blender.

A few weeks ago, I sent an email to Braun asking if the blade gear teeth issue had been remedied, as I was interested in the blender only if so. I forgot about it, not receiving a reply. Today a box is on my doorstep, and what is inside? A blade assembly! To a blender I do not own! lol

Still no answer to my email.

2-0 out of 5 stars Excellent blender... for 4 months ONLY
I can't deny that the blender was very good WHILE IT WORKED. However, after 4 months using it the motor burned!! Smoke came from the bottom of the blender. I send it straight to the trash. Not recommended. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

This multipurpose tool created a stir in the kitchen when it came out, as the food processor did a generation earlier. In order to blend, whip, and chop smaller amounts of ingredients, it's no longer necessary to wrestle with bulky appliances. Immerse the 7-1/2-inch blender shaft, with its little blade on the end, into a pot where vegetables have been simmering, press the switch, and in seconds a creamy soup appears--with no need to dump everything into a big blender. Blend sauces and baby foods in their cooking pots, too. Blend a milk shake or juice drink right in its drinking container, or in the 2-1/2-cup beaker included in this set. Whipping cream and egg whites is just as convenient: a 5-inch whisk attaches to the motor when the blender is removed. For chopping nuts, herbs, garlic, or onions, there's a 2-cup chopper bowl with a special blade. The motor with the attached blender shaft can be mounted on a wall (mount included). Everything but the motor and the chopper-bowl top (both should be wiped with a damp cloth) can go into the dishwasher. This tool is more than handy, it's a revolution. The instruction sheet, unfortunately, is harder to comprehend than the tool is to use. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars What a Godsend!
No, I'm not kidding. This handy little guy has saved me counter space, time and cleaning up. I am able to make cakes, muffins, great tasting pure fruit juices in an instant. I thought that this little gadget wouldn't be able to live up to its promise, but it's proved me wrong. I bought it out of desperation, after my Moulinex broke down. The first thought in my head was "what about counter space?" Well, Mr. Braun made sure he left nothing out. Because of his great mind, the device comes with a wall mounting so you don't have to clutter your counter with clumsy top-heavy things.

I read in a review for this product that it doesn't last. What could possibly be wrong with this when you need to chop something really fast? Like any normal person, I use the device, clean it and put it away. Simple as that! You can even go as far as using it and putting it back in the box. That is what I did up til the time the wall mount was set up.

Now I can watch my weight, drink homemade milkshakes, and chop away at those tear jerking onions without shedding a single tear.
And, when I'm done, I just rinse everything in the sink and clip it back onto the wall til the next time.
No more fuss having to make the perfect omelet either. With the handy wire whisk, you'll have a nice fluffy omelet in no time.

Watch out for how much pressure you apply to the speed accelerator button, because you may find your cake mix blending in pretty well with the paint on your wall. In that case, avoid using a shallow bowl. Use a deeper mixing bowl, bigger than the size recommended for your ingredients.

Happy cooking! Hope my review helped you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Powerful gadget with no Mess!
These days it's hard to really brag about a product, especially something as silly as a blender. Well, here I am, ready to brag about it. Just received it today, and I was very impressed with its performance. I work out almost every day, and I need to be consuming about 3 large shakes a day. I use to stir about 2 cups of powder and milk for about 3-4 minutes each time I had to make a shake. Every single time, since the shake had to be super thick, I'd get nasty big CLUMPS all over, it was a disaster and something I never looked forward to. This gadget, however, is a gift sent from god I tell ya! Less than 10 seconds ( no exaggeration) and the thing just turned into liquid, CLUMPFREE, it tasted so damn good. BUT, yes there's a BUT... the BEST part was that it only took another fifteen seconds to clean!... Cleaning blenders three times a day everyday could be a nightmare, but with this gadget it's a beautiful thing. If you need a blender everyday this is for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Detachable system works the best
I've had a Braun one-piece hand blender for about 12-15 years that has worked very well. My wife saw this model somewhere and bought it for me for one simple reason: I was always complaining about the non-detachable model being dangerous if you left it pluged in.

Since the blades are exposed, any pressing of the button will chop anything in its path, and that includes fingers. Now, with the new model, it can stay pluged in and safe, since it stays detached until use (at least in my case). Of course, none of this speaks to this thing being much easier to clean than the previous one. I detach after use, run under hot water, then place on a paper towel to dry. If I'm in a hurry, I just drop in a water-filled glass in the sink and deal with it later. It doesn't stain, even with blueberries, so there isn't a need to deal with it immediately. However, I would not recommend putting this in the dishwasher. There's no need to and the prolonged heat might damage it. That's just my suspicion. At any rate, cleaning the old one required attention to it immediately after use.

Anyway, I use this thing almost daily for protein shakes (smoothies). I'm considering a smoothie maker since I want something to make in the morning and have made for several more shakes during the day. However, even with a smoothie maker, I'll still use this Braun blender on stuff that would create a mess in the smoothie machine. For example, one shake I make with protein powder, milk, a few small ice cubes and peanut butter. I swear that tastes just like a melted Blizzard from Dairy Queen, for those of you that have had them. You would NOT want to make anything with Peanut butter in a smoothie maker or blender. With the Braun, its a snap!

2-0 out of 5 stars Trust me, it's not worth it.
I was initially very happy with this blender. I probably used it no more than twice a week for fairly low-powered jobs like making pesto and blending soup. 14 months after purchase, the motor just died, literally in mid-blend. I thought it had gotten overheated and left it for a couple of days. No luck. It was fully dead, and so was the 1-year warranty.

So I called Braun. I admit I was hoping they would offer to give me a replacement motor unit. Nope. I asked about repair, but apparently, nobody fixes things anymore. Nor do they offer recycling. What they do offer is a heavy pitch to buy a whole new Braun blender set, even if all the attachments for your old one is perfectly fine. I had to argue with them for 15 minutes before they decided that they would just let me buy a new motor unit off of them for $20.

A week later I got a box from Braun with... a whole new set of attachments. Not the motor unit. Needless to say, I'm never buying another Braun product again. If somebody wants the used attachments (whisk, chopper, blender, smoothie container), they're yours.

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT!
At a friend's suggestion I recently bought the Braun Multiquick Professional Hand Blender. I wasn't sure about spending so much on a piece of kitchen equipment I had always lived without... but I finally decided to take the leap of faith. I couldn't be happier with the product! It's easy to use and easy to clean. It makes fantastic creamed soups. Because of the metal blending shaft, you can use this hand blender right in the pot of whatever you're cooking (thus saving you from the chore of cleaning another container!). I recently made a very inexpensive and delicious soup with onions, zucchini, eggplant, water, Thai curry paste and a can of coconut milk. I blended it with my hand blender and created a very rich-tasting, filling soup for pennies! Now that Autumn has arrived, I'm looking forward to making pumpkin soup with my hand blender! If you're considering the purchase, just go for it! I don't think you will be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Design Ever
Our old stick blender died and though I didn't use it very often, it was indispensible for certain tasks such as smoothing tomato sauces. When I went searching for a replacement, I was lucky enough to find and choose this one.

Now I'm using it every single day because the interchangable design makes it so easy to clean. The motor stays dry and plugged into the wall while the business end detaches and goes to the sink for a quick and easy rinse.

No fumbling with the cord. No gymnastics at the sink with a stick that's too long to get under the faucet. No worrying about getting the wrong parts wet. No tomato stains on white plastic - this wand is stainless steel. Ten seconds and it's done and ready to go again. Contrast this with my traditional Kitchen-Aid blender which has a 3-part lid, glass body, 2 rubber gaskets, a plastic base, and the blender teeth to clean. It's no contest. In addition, the shape of the wand head does effectively cut down on the spalshing. When it's running there is a strong suction effect which holds it down to the bottom of the container you are mixing in.

Is it perfect? No. The head at the end of the wand is a little too broad for many containers. I doubt I'll ever have use for the ice crusher. The anti-splash design does sometimes prevent the full quantity of food from cycling through, so you need to either tilt it slightly or simply move it around instead of leaving it in one spot. The metal wand might cause scratches in non-stick cookware if not used gingerly. Some of the attachments collect water if you try to clean them in the dishwasher. But these complaints are nitpicky. It does its core job very well.

The bottom line is that here is an appliance that doesn't cause you more work in cleaning than it saves you in doing its job. It's a joy to be able to mix up a mocha malt frappuccino in under a minute, not have to pay $tarbuck$ an arm and a leg for it, and have the blender clean before you even start to drink it. On that basis alone, it has almost paid for itself already.

5-0 out of 5 stars Why did I wait so long to buy this?
I love to cook but am not enamoured of "gadgets". Indeed, I gave a way a food processor after less than a year because I actually prefer using a first class knife and doing things the hard way! But, I make all of my own soups and for years went through the messy process of using an old Sunbeam blender, transferring the hot liquid from saucepan to blender and back again - yuck! No more! What a delight to use this machine is - easy, clean and simple to operate and excellent results for my soups. Soup on the table in 25 minutes! Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Machine
I saw this machine at amazon.com because I was searching for a hand held blender to mash up my fruit to make my jams with. I saw this particular model and thought it would be great to have. The price was a bit high and I fought with myself for a few days on if I should buy it or not. My father had bought me a hand held blender for a house warming present when I moved into my first apartment and I used it till it died. I was looking for a good replacement. I finally after a few days ordered it. I had it delivered 2nd day and it came on the 2nd day. I opened the box and immediatley started to use it. I have to say that I have used it to mash strawberries, apricots, bananas, grapes, apples and many other fruits right in the pan and in a few seconds. I have used all the accessories for many different things. I use the large container for making drinks, shakes, and for large portions of nuts to be chopped. The smaller one is great for a cup or so of ingredients. Both the small and large containers have a rubber base that double as a lid when you want to cover the container (I am having a slight problem with the base staying on the large container bottom though, once I lift the container the base will stay on the counter). I used the wisk and beaker for homemade mayo, and salsa and they turned out great. I thought for sure that the ice crusher wouldnt work that great but I was wrong it did work and crushed quite a bit of ice about 3 cups or so. The stand was great too. I installed it on the wall and when I am done using the blender I place it back into the stand. I keep it plugged in at all times and it is just hanging there ready to be used. I have only had this machine for about a month now so I am sure I will be using it for other things as well. It is a great buy and I am very happy with this purchase. The machine is very powerful, easy to clean, and all parts are dishwasher safe. I strongly recommend this product to others.

5-0 out of 5 stars No kitchen complete without one
This is hands-down the handiest machine you'll ever have in the kitchen. I've had for more than 10 years and it's still going strong. I use it weekly at minimum. It's small,light and easy to handle, Cleans in seconds and ready for the next use.

You'll use this for everything. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Equipped with an exceptionally powerful 280-watt motor, this versatile appliance is a combination hand mixer and hand blender. For mixing, beating, and whipping, there are two cunningly designed beaters that produce volume while reducing splashing. For kneading, there's a strong dough hook, and for blending, there's an attachment that can be used in the accompanying 2-cup container (or any container) for small jobs like salad dressings. For chopping, the power unit attaches to another container with its own blades to make quick work of nuts, onions, hard cheeses, herbs, garlic, and meats. (The container's base serves as a snap-on plastic lid for storage.) The mixer/blender has three speeds and a power-pulse button for working through tough jobs. It stands upright on a nonskid base, and its power cord pivots to stay out of the way or can be locked in place. This appliance carries a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have in any kitchen!
My former roommate had this mixer when we lived together, and we used it all the time, especially for making salsa and smoothies. This unit takes the place of about 5 other appliances! I was in the market for a mini food processor, but after rediscovering this now I don't need one! It is also extremely easy to clean, and you should keep the box for storage-makes it a lot easier to put away. I can't say enough about this Braun Multimix!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome product!
I had a Black & Decker hand mixer, which was underpowered and tended to splatter. I also ha a Black & Decker food processor, where cleanup was messy and food tended to stick to the sides of the bowl, resulting in a lot of waste.
The Braun M880 mixer attachments feature a unique design which eliminates or minimizes splatter. An onion did not stick to the bowl of the chopper attachment and came out very uniform and finely chopped. I was able to knead dough for a pizza with ease. The amount of power in the blender attachment surprised me at first, tending to create a suction effect and drew the blender toward the bottom of the pot when I blended some tomatoes. The tomatoes also came out very uniform and nicely pureed.
I've replaced two tools with one and have added functionality.
Overall, this is an excellent product with a very clever design.

4-0 out of 5 stars Multiple Attachments Make This A Winner
I've used this little mixer more in the past couple of weeks than I ever used my stand mixer in ten years. It is so convenient to use, and it's small enough for easy storage.

The chopper attachment is powerful and the cleanup is easy. I've used it for all sorts of veggies, and even minced fresh ginger in it. Fresh salsa was a breeze and SO much better than store bought.

The stick blender works great. The motor is so powerful that you actually get a suction effect on the bottom of the bowl. The mixer is also powerful--it handled a cake mix with ease.

I would have given it five stars, but I thought (from reading another review) that it came with a wall mount to hang it. This does not come with a wall mount, so storage isn't quite as convenient as I had hoped.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this multimixer
I have had my braun multimixer for about 8 years. I received it as a wedding gift and I have worked this thing very hard. I make these fabulous cookies twice a year that have destroyed my stand mixer and yet this little braun multimix has done the job for the last 5 years. Finally the motor gave out, but after what I put it through for the last 8 years, it deserves retirement and I'm buying another one just like it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works so great I bought a second one as a backup...
I do not understand the bad reviews...I read this was the quietest mixer and boy it is! I works great and the design is real handy. The drink mixer tool works great for hot choclate, mixing and grinding items for salad dressing and puree of soup. I have had none of the problems others with low reviews give. This is top notch and I find when I locate a great product at a great price I buy a backup because one day I may wear out the one I have. ... Read more

Braun's Multiquick Professional improves on an appliance that's already highly convenient. With a 400-watt motor, this updated hand blender has increased power for faster and better results. A dial on the top of the handle allows you to select from five different blending speeds, giving you more control over the consistency of your purées. A turbo button on the front of the handle lets you immediately switch up to the highest blending speed. The hand-blender attachment has a unique blade that offers smoother and more even blending, making it ideal for puréeing fruit shakes, soups, or homemade baby food. In addition, the hand-blender shaft has an innovative antisplashing design that prevents food from splattering on your kitchen walls during blending. Other included attachments are a minifood processor with an antislip bottom for chopping foods such as herbs, onions, or meats and a whisk for whipping egg whites, cake batter, or cream. The set also comes with a tall lidded beaker that is a convenient shape for blending smoothies and for storing leftovers, and a wall holder for storage. The hand blender, chopper, whisk, and beaker are all dishwasher-safe, and the unit is covered by a one-year limited warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth its weight in gold.... no platinum
I have been using an older version of this Braun for more than a year, and I can say that it is the best money I have ever spent on a kitchen item, and perhaps the best under [$$$] I have ever spent on anything. I have all the kitchen tools, most professional level, and all the garage tools that anyone could want, but for my money this is the real deal. Spend the extra for this professional model and you will not be disappointed. The extra power is well worth the extra $$. It is amazing. Clean up is so quick and easy and it does about everything. I even started using mine as a juicer when my old juicer broke. In a tall container, throw in some chopped carrots, a banana, protein powder, and some Silk soy milk, and 2 mins. later you have ecstasy. I have done away with my blender, chopper, etc. And for whipping, I no longer create the big clean up mess with my KitchenAid. I even take this item with me when I travel since I wind up cooking wherever I visit. That is how much I love this product. I have no affiliation with the company, by the way.

4-0 out of 5 stars Powerful gadget
I am very impressed with the heftiness and solid build of this stick blender. I have another Braun, much smaller, which now feels like a toy compared to this one. Time to retire the little, less powerful one. I also like the size of the food chopper - it is much bigger than the mini choppers that are in the market. You can easily put in all the ingredients for salsa or guacamole, and chop it all in one chopping session, rather than chop little portions as you would in a mini chopper. Much easier than hauling down the food processor. Great in-between size.

The ONLY reason I give this item 4 stars (would have given it 4.5, if I could have) is that it is much bigger than I had expected, and as another reviewer mentioned, the "base" of the stick blender is quite wide (2-7/8 inches in diameter) and therefore, does not fit most drinking glasses. Solution to this: use the included beaker then pour into the glasses. On the other hand, it is really nice to have the wider base for puree'ing soups - makes your job much faster, especially with its power. The whisk I really don't have a use for, much faster and less clumsy to use a hand whisk. But hey, it is still an added bonus.

the blender performs flawlessly. as a stick blender, it draws the soup down into the pot allowing the user to move it up and down without splatters. I'm all done with putting bowls and beaters into the freezer for whipped cream..just pour the cream,sugar and vanilla into the included container and it's one minute to stiff peaks. Chopper works well on spices,nuts, and cheese and everything cleans right up

2-0 out of 5 stars Good, not great
This boat motor does the job, but takes forever to get it done. Its limited power of 200 watts is a severe hindrance. Merely pureeing carrots in chix stock (quart total volume) left quite a few chunks after nearly 30 seconds of blending. It is however, easy to clean and quieter than your average blender or food processor. Do yourself a favor and get the Braun 430, with 50% more power and only a minor price difference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must-have kitchen gadget!
I bought this product in order to prepare my special butternut squash soup this Thanksgiving. In the past, I've had to transfer the soup to a blender in order to liquify it to the proper consistency. This year preparation was SO much easier thanks to this Braun handheld blender. It works like a charm on smoothies, too. The best part is the easy cleanup--you just pull the attachment off the end and throw it in the dishwasher. It stores easily, too...as one who has grown weary of numerous large appliances taking up cabinet space, I appreciate that. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Convenience, convenience....Did I mention convenience?
This has become one of my favorite kitchen appliances. It saves alot of time because now you can mix/blend whatever you want, wherever the food is, whether it's in a cup, pan or bowl. It doesn't matter! The variable speed knob gives you the freedom to blend how you please. Cleaning this couldn't be easier. You just snap off the bottom section and rinse it. It also comes with a chopper attachment to chop practically anything. The attachment wire wisk comes in very handy as well to mix things. When I used to make shakes just for myself, it was such a hassle using a regular blender and CLEAN IT! Now all I do is blend in the cup I will be drinking from, snap off the bottom part and rinse. Highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars Versatile and very easy to clean
I bought this hand blender to replace our old Braun 4166 hand blender which is 13 years old (still working fine, although the blades have dulled). The biggest advantage of this unit is cleanup. The plastic shaft on our old unit has gotten somewhat yellow from blending curried soups. The MR550MCA has a stainless steel shaft that is, well, stainless. Better yet, it easily detaches and pops into the dishwasher for painless cleanup! The motor is also more powerful and less noisy. There's every reason to believe that this unit will also last 13+ years. I haven't tested the chopper and wisk attachements -- that's not why I bought it. The chopper looks pretty good, though. This makes a great gift. (I gave it to my wife for Mother's day.)

If you don't already own a hand blender, you don't know what you're missing. We use ours almost daily to make smoothies. It's especially good for pureed soups. No need to transfer the soup to a blender, just pop the hand blender into the cooking pot! Hand blenders may not replace regular blenders all blending jobs, but for many tasks they're easier to use and reduce cleanup.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid, versatile and affordable
I purchased this hand blender a few weeks ago, and have been quite happy with it. The chopper attachment is perfect for small dicing jobs, like an onion or a few cloves of garlic, but it doesn't work as well as many food processors for thoroughness and evenness of chopping. The whisk is brilliant, and can turn regular milk into a lo-cal dessert topping. The variable speed is very handy, and necessary for a handblender with 280 watts of power, or everything would fly everywhere. (Most handblenders have a maximum of 200 watts of power by comparison.) I used the regular blender attachment to puree a butternut squash soup in the pot, and was generally pleased with the results, although the soup was not as smooth (it was slightly gritty) as with a regular blender. The stainless steel shaft is the first I've been comfortable using in a steaming pot, but make sure you watch out for splashes! All in all, certainly best of class, and the chopper and whisk attachments are well worth the extra cost of this item. Recommended for small and "in the pot" jobs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Kitchen Appliance I Own!
This is the best hand blender I have ever used! I bought this blender after reading the reviews and I have not been disappointed. I use it 2-3 times a day to mix my protein shakes with crushed ice and it has held up wonderfully. When the crushed iced function on my fridge temporarily went out, I had to use ice cubes and the blender didn't miss a beat. My husband loves to use it to puree soups and sauces. Because the bottom part is metal it can be used in hot liquids directly on the stovetop. If you need a good, reliable hand blender, spend the extra money for this one! You won't regret it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the Multimix!
It's great, works perfectly, but I need that hand mixer function. That's what's missing from it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Blender for the money!
My fiance and I run a small daiquiris business during the summer months. We purchased 3 of these blenders for our first event which was one full year ago. The blenders are still holding up fine after 2000 + daiquiris. We purchased a few commercial grade blenders and had to take them back, because they could not hold out. We wanted a few more of these blenders and could not find them anywhere. It doesn't appear like they are in the stores or they sell out real fast. If you are looking for an inexpensive blender that can stand the test of 1,000 of frozen daiquiris....and I'm talking about ice crushing power...This is the one for the job!

5-0 out of 5 stars Cuts ice like butter
Wow!

I bought this blender based on all the other 5-star ratings on Amazon and I'm glad I did!

I was looking at blenders closer to $100 and ran across this one with it's 100% 5-star reviews. Only problem was that Amazon showed it as 'discontinued'. Fortunately a 'refurb' was available through an Amazon seller so I snagged it. The 'refurb' turned out to be a factory-new unit.

All we've made in it is drinks - daquiris and smoothies - and from the first daquiri I knew it was exceptional. No stray chunks of ice - couldn't get any smoother - and blended the monster jug (mostly full of ice) in like 4 seconds.

I love the power and capacity and would recommend it to anyone. I was a little wary about having a $40-ish plastic jug blender out on my counter, but I'm already showing it off to friends - so not big on style, but the performance more than makes up for it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not recommended.
I had bought this blender for my wife's birthday on 07/03.

Pros: It looks nice on the counter. It has a crush feature, that can crush frozen fruit and ice cubes (our last blender turned the ice cubes into hard, smooth ovals).

Cons: When the blender runs, it can consume just about anything. However, it creates an air pocket around the blade and one has to open the lid and poke the contents to reset them around the blade. This must be done numerous times. I found the best way is to pick the blender container up and shake it each time. While this was annoying we quickly got over it as the blender was much better than our last. But a few days ago on 11/03, she was crushing frozen fruit and a piece near the base of the plastic container punched through. So now we have a crude 1"x1" hole in the lower section of the plastic container. I don't know if I'll be able to find a replacement container for the blender.

Moral of the story: a good base isn't good unless you have an equally good container.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tough, Powerful and Inexpensive
After one too many burned out blenders, I needed something with bags of power, a tough plastic jug (not glass!) and inexpensive.

This blender is all that. It destroys in seconds just about anything placed in the jug, is easy to clean and easy to handle. The speed variation available is small, but doesn't affect the excellent results.

It is essential to place a hand on the jug while operating, and more than half a kW of power is slightly noisy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Refurbished Great for Smoothies
I got a refurbished model and it came like new. I got this exclusively for smoothies. It chops ice cubes like they were butter. Now, the only question is whether it will last a year or two. I'll check back in next year. -- UPDATE TEN MONTHS LATER: heavy usage and still working great -- If it ever breaks, I'll get another Braun. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars You'll be lucky to get 20 uses
My problem was not the rubber gasket(washer that goes between the jar and the plastic ring with blade assembly, that keeps the jar from leaking), but the rubber drive (the groved ring that grips the underside of the blade asembly and makes it spin. When I first used the machine and noticed this part was made of rubber I was surprised and queried its durability. However I dismissed that concern because I thought a company like Krups would not use a flimsy material on such an important part. I was wrong! After maybe 15 uses, the gripping ridges of this rubber drive have completely ground down(turned to rubber dust), so that when it spins when the machine is on, the blade assembly can no longer spin. It has basically become a round peg in a star shaped hole. You may not understand what I mean until you examine one for yourself. I have since looked at this part on other brands of blenders and all the ones I've looked at, from the cheapest to the most expensive, use a hard plastic material for this part. All except Krups, that is! I am very disappointed that this machine has met my early fears, because I did like it during my initial use. I would also like to point out that although this machine has an ice crushing feature I only used it once and the wear that occurred happened while blending mainly sorf, run of the mill items, soups etc.; nothing taxing, yet it couldn't survive even that. The 1 star is mainly for styling and initial use, otherwise it deserves 0 for its absurd lack of durability, which was very obvious to me on my first examination of it. I cannot imagine why Krups' designers would use soft rubber for this part. It's a nobrainer!

1-0 out of 5 stars You guessed it ... Gasket woes
Received it as a wedding gift. After 5 months of making mixed drinks the gasket became part of one of the drinks and I'm on the search for a replacement. Seemed good for drinks although the blades don't always create a good mixing vortex.(mixes just the bottom contents of the carafe on some drinks)

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS BLENDER
I have three extra gaskets for the previous reviewers. My problem is the blade in my blender has stopped spinning even though the motor works. I paid $100 dollars for this blender not two years ago and used it maybe once a week to make smoothies. (It worked great -- much better than the Kitchen Aid which I returned.) Customer service is completely unapologetic and unhelpful. I can't find a replacement of the plastic ring with blade that fits in the bottom of the jar. It was a beautiful blender and the thought of tossing it makes me want to cry. Future blender buyers, beware!

3-0 out of 5 stars For want of a gasket
I love the blender. But after six months, I misplaced the gasket and have spent about three hours on the phone over the last two weeks trying to track down a replacement. No service center has it; the Krups parts department doesn't have it. I was just told my request needs to be forwarded to the national office. I won't buy a Krups blender again.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad Gasket and Poor Customer Service
After 2 uses, the rubber gasket tore in half. Their response has been that the parts are not available because it is a new product. After 5 calls to their customer service, I have a brand new blender with a bad gasket 8 months later. I also called and left a voicemail message in the office of the Krups CEO with no response. ...
