Works great for a couple of years - until the gears started grinding
on December 7, 2013
This was a wonderful blender container. I had upgraded it from the 4 sided one on my old K-tec blender, I loved the extra capacity, and with my larger family, I invested in 2 of them.
However, only after a couple of years, the gears started grinding. There was smoke, and my smoothie had a horribly oily/rubbery taste to it. I kept burping up the taste all morning. Fortunately I figured it out before the rest of the family had any, but it wasted several bananas, a bag of frozen pineapple and several handfuls of spinach, down the drain. I'm sure it is non-toxic but I'm feeling a bit queasy. Have contacted Blendtec in hopes that they will offer to repair it, because for $95 you'd think the container would last a good 5 or more years.
