After about a dozen delicious smoothies this machine stopped working and the Back to Basics company was not helpful in addressing the problem. There were many phone calls and unanswered e-mails. We sent it back for repair twice and it still doesn't work. In fact, the company sent it back missing a part. From our experience this machine is a piece of junk put out by an unresponsive company. But those first few smoothies were wonderful. They need to rethink this product. In the meantime, don't waste your money.

Powerful (but very, very loud), this Smoothie Pro 600 worked like a charm, but after a few dozen uses and cleanings, the smoothies start to leak through the rubber sealing at the bottom of the canister. Also, the plastic twist-off blade does not lock into place very well, and because of the powerful motor, it sometimes comes undone while blending causing a large mess. Just recently the smoothies are also starting to leak through the ready-to-pour nozzle, as well.

I purchased the Smoothie Pro 600 a couple weeks ago and am fully satisfied. It makes great smoothies without making a huge mess in the kitchen. I've been using it almost every morning since I've had it. The best thing about this smoothie maker is that the spout makes it very convenient to pour your smoothies without making a huge mess. There are also lines on the glass container part that let you know just how much liquid to pour and how much solid ingredients to put in so you don't have to measure it separately. The price isn't bad at all, either. I haven't had any problems with any leakage or the top flying off. The only way I see that the top will fly off is if you don't twist it closed properly. The blades on the machine are just strong enough to crush ice and frozen fruits, which is fine for smoothies. If you want something that'll crush rocks, then opt for a stronger, more expensive blender. But if all you need is something that'll conveniently make smoothies, this is perfect.

I received a Smoothie Pro 600 as a gift. It worked great for this first couple of months, then I noticed that the gear wheels on the base motor and the container were wearing down. They are so worn down, contact is not being made between them, so the smoothie maker is useless. Poor quality.

I received this for my birthday as I was looking for a good smoothie and iced coffee machine. I was very dissapointed. It has great difficulty crushing ice and is extremely loud and noisy. It takes a long time to mix up anything in it. It also has to be washed by hand and not in the dish washer. I wish I'd picked a different machine.

The blade unit broke twice within six months of purchasing this blender. The handle for the spout broke within four months. This machine is always leaking. I bought a higher end blender model from back to basics as I do love the spout for pouring drinks. Same results, now I have 1 machine made up of the two, and a broken handle for the spout, and a machine that leaks, I had to wrap pipe threading tape to keep it from leaking. Completely disappointed on the cheap quality of these products. On the bright side Back to Basics ships the replacement parts quickly. This company will never get another cent from me.

I bought mine 2 months ago. First time was okay...and next time I thought it was screwed on tightly..but it did come off also ...a BIG MESS. Not to mention all the ingredients - fruits, yogurt, $$$ down the drain...literally...and all over the counter...and dripping on floor....
AND one time I noticed the leaking of the ball where it dispenses from also. I messed around with the lever and assumed that it was just sticking. Just not made very well I think.
I've only used it about 5 times. This last time the jar came unscrewed AGAIN - (and I did check that it was on as tight as possible), and I will probably not bother to use it again. Too frustrating, too costly. Back to a blender for me!

I have this smoothie machine. After I used it about 5 times the spout started to leak. About the 7th time it started to leak around the rubber ring right into the bottom of the machine. It also spray out of the top where the plunger is. I was very disappointed in this item.

It lasted about 2 months of somewhat regular use. It's not easy to disassemble, but that's just the beginning. It's loud and created a burning smell almost right away. The bottom of the container starts to spin off during use after a few times of near-quality performance. This means you'll spill anything you don't manage to get out the spout, and before you know it, the motor will burn out.

Separately, I purchased one model, and received a different one which was about $10 cheaper, and didn't realize it (since they don't look too different) until after it broke, and I couldn't return it anymore. Check the other reviews though: buying Back To Basics products means you'll be forced to do everything by hand soon enough.....

They made the screw-on bottom go the same way as the motor so it screws itself off and when you lift it out of the base the bottom falls off and your smoothie runs all over the place.
HORRIBLE!
