3-0 out of 5 stars Can't contact customer service!
I got my blender, which does look very nice, and used it twice. Suddenly the blender would no longer work on level 2. Level 1 and Pulse both work fine. I found an 866 number on the back of the package, but when I called it I got no answer, it just rang and rang! Imagine my surprise! So I went to the website and filled out their web form about the problem. That was 3 days ago and I have yet to hear a response. I filled out the form again this morning. I guess I will have to wait and see if they respond. If they don't, I will defininetly start chargeback procedures. It's simply unbelieveable that I can't contact this company!

Update:
I gave the 866 number one more shot today (10 days after I intially tried to contact the company) and finally got through to a person. She told me they were having phone problems last week. I told her the problem I had and she promptly said she would issue a shipping label so that I could send the blender in and they would ship out a new one for me (have not actually received this yet). I never did receive a response from the web site customer feedback form though.

2nd Update:
I received a shipping label from the company that day. She said the replacement process takes about 2 weeks. As a result, I am right now changing my rating from the intial one star I gave it to 3 stars. If I get a blender back that works, will probably up it to 4 stars because it does work really well.

3-0 out of 5 stars Looks pretty, not very sturdy
I got this blender as a birthday present and immediately plugged it in to make some daiquiris. It's a very nice looking blender, the cord has the neat loop on it to make it easy to unplug, buttons are solid, easy to work with. The glass looks very sturdy and thick. So the instructions say, don't blend for more than 60 seconds at a time or you can blow out the motor. No problem, I put in my ice and daiquiri mix, following the directions, and get started blending. I spend the next 10 minutes trying to get this blender to blend all the ice. I keep having to open the lid to jiggle the ice around and blend some more. My old $9 blender worked better than this. I made 4 batches of daiquiris with less and less ice in the jug to see if maybe I had used too much. No such luck, this blender would not blend anything above the bottom quarter of the jug. So then comes the final straw. The heavy duty glass jug is sitting on the counter and I accidently drop a small plastic spice bottle inside. The glass shatters. So I have packaged this blender back up and returned it. I will have to continue my search for a sturdy blender.

5-0 out of 5 stars Trust the brand and go for it. An art piece in your kitchen
Shopping for a blender can get aggravating because of so many things to compare, and you may end up convincing yourself that you have to spend $150 or more to get something lasting. This blender will prove that philosophy wrong. Take advantage of the fact that this is a new company offering this incredible machine at such a low price...I guarantee that won't last long. I had to wait more than three months to get mine from Amazon (who were nice enough to upgrade my shipping to 2nd FedEx free of charge to compensate for the long wait).

To start, this is the quietest blender I have used so far. Then, the way the glass jug fits over the base is different and gives an added feeling of security. If you look closely at the picture, you will see two of the three metal, wide "prongs" that stick up from the base and kind of cradle the jug. It just FEELS good. Also, the six-blades have a unique design (in fact, I thought they were defective and bent in wierd directions), but you realize that they were especially made to crush ice. I have never been able to crush ice this easily. No more of those chunks that end up below the blades, because one arm of the blades actually aims DOWNWARDS. Even the top of the jug is nice; it is heavy and fits snugly. Believe it or not, even the electric plug is designed better than all else; it has a loop at the end that allows you to safely unplug it with wet hands.

To top it all off, the design and material makes this look like an expensive designer blender. The simple elegance of the switch is just the right touch.

In all, I love this blender. It has actually inspired me and I now want to blend everything, including my AM cereal. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Sleek and Stylish
This one's turned entertaining at my house from Budweiser and Chardonnay to Stawberry Daquiris and Margueritas. I've used glass and plastic blenders before that I used to hide under the kitchen counter but the sleek and stylish stainless steel design of this blender have made it a proud showpiece on my bar. It crushes berries and even ice with ease and the pitcher also makes a good cocktail shaker for more liquid drinks. The pitcher is made of thick stainless steel that looks like it's made to last. Looks great, works well - 5 stars! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

A gorgeous piece of workmanship and powerful to boot, the Breville Classic Blend Master makes blending sauces, smoothies, drinks, and soups a pleasurable snap. The unit starts with an incredibly sturdy base combining a 580-watt commercial-strength motor and gleaming metal die-cast housing. The 6-way blade system, patented by Breville, is smartly engineered to work with the upward vortex of the pitcher for optimal mixing and consistency. Made from sturdy thick glass with a broad glass handle, the pitcher holds 48 ounces (1.4 liters) and is clearly marked with both metric and imperial measurements. One of the best parts of Breville’s construction is the way the pitcher attaches without screwing on--just nestle it into four slots in the base, and it’s ready to go. A tight-fitting lid prevents splashes, while the removable inner lid allows for mid-blending additions. Leak-proof and handsome, the pitcher’s rubber-rimmed chrome base adds easy stability and makes it suitable for the table. Power settings include three distinct levels--with one specifically designed for ice--and a pulsing function. Perhaps on future versions, the power switch will be upgraded to metal, but its current plastic structure is sturdy enough. Outfitted with raised non-skid feet, the unit also comes with a one-year warranty and Breville’s signature safety plug, which is easy to insert and remove from sockets.--Emily Bedard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I was wrong--my previous review was useless
I tried the same thing with other blenders and water and ice does about the same thing. Ice gets pushed up and forms a solid mass and doesn't come down and the blades wind up spinning in water.

Just opened. Added Ice and water, in proportions one would use to make a margaretta. Here's what it does. It tosses the ice upward and the blades spin in the water. This is unbelievable but even after stopping and knocking the ice down MANY MANY MANY times here is what you get.
Layer #1: by the blades: Water (increasing each time)
Layer #2: above the blades: A 1-2 inch gap of AIR!!!
Layer #3: Ice, and after 10 minutes of stopping and knocking the ice back down, it is mostly complete ice cubes.

These were ice cubes from a automatic ice maker--nothing substantial--those half-moon units.

Add more water? Sorry, after 10 minutes it was half water/half ice--no dice. The more water the more it was inclined to eject the ice into that solid layer that NEVER CAME DOWN unless you knocked it down.

Again, any blender I've tried with just some water and ice, does the same thing. I have no real judgement about this blender.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best we've had yet
We decided to base our blender purchase on Amazon's customer reviews rather than Consumer Reports reviews (couldn't find this brand rated in CR), and are glad we did so. This blender is used daily for smoothies and once a week for frozen margaritas. It's quieter than others we've had in the past and is great at crushing ice....nice, smooth margaritas. It's very sturdy and looks good on the counter. It holds up in the dishwasher too. We had to wait over a month for it since it was on backorder, but are glad we did. After a few months of daily use, we're very happy with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars More than I expected
I should deduct 1 star since I paid 99.00 for mine but I like
this blender.
Easy to clean. Easy to use.
It is so powerful it will toss food all over your kitchen
even with the main lid on. It creates a vacuum. The blades
are supoer sharp.
I make a lot of smoothies. This blender does it very well.
I tried unpeeled apples and pears and voila!....you can't tell
the peels are in the smoothie.
I also used it for making super fine suger using regular
granulated sugar. If we did not turn it off it would have made
confection sugar. I also used it for grinding grahmam crackers
for a crust....it did it too well....I ended up with graham
cracker flour.
It gets all the nooks a cranies and leaves nothing behind. My
oster blender always needed some help.

At 79.99 this is a good deal and a great blender....I paid more
and I recommend it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Blender
We use this blender just about daily--I make protein shakes; my wife blends various spreads and dips. It works wonderfully both at grinding ice and for blending. The unique six blade system crushes ice in no time flat. The vortex system of the jar allows for excellent blending from top to bottom. A knowledgable chef had told me to look for a blender with a vortex jar, and this was one of the few that I found. This blender works much better than the KitchenAid that it replaces both for blending and ice grinding. I also prefer the three speeds to the two speeds offered by the Oster and Waring blenders. Seemingly well-built and durable. This Breville is highly recommend.

3-0 out of 5 stars High expectations were shattered!!
I think I may be missing something here...after reading all the good reviews, I tried this blender and was disappointed. It looks good, great actually. Blender container is a great size. BUT...I found speed level one to be too weak and speed level two to be too strong! I was merely pureeing cottage cheese and an egg together and it splattered all over the container and lid, rather than emusifying in the bottom of the container. (You lose a lot of your mixture when you're trying to scrape it out of the sides and lid of the container.) I tried two different methods and the results were the same. I think I will keep on walking and try some others. ... Read more
