Product Description

Consistent Blending, Every Time

Breville Hemisphere Blending System
The unique Hemisphere blade system is designed to circulate ingredients through the blender, making blending more even.
Breville easy-clean base
Easy-to-clean back-lit interface

Breville’s IKON Blender is designed to minimize food traps and blend all ingredients evenly. Don’t worry any longer about lumps at the top of the blending jug or over-blended ingredients at the bottom; the BBL600XL’s Hemisphere blade system has central blades to draw ingredients on the top down and wider blades to push ingredients on the bottom up. The motor has a 750 watt capacity, and there are five speed settings including mix, chop, blend, liquefy and puree. Preset programs for smoothies and crushed ice use pulsing at varied speeds to ensure optimum results. Make more than smoothies; the Breville IKON Blender can also prepare pesto, soup, and sauces.

Breville's IKON Blender has a sturdy die-cast aluminum base with a back-lit, single-wipe-clean control pad with no crevices for easy cleaning. A Breville assist plug and assist lid make getting the IKON Blender set up easy; simply insert your finger through the loop and pull. The 51 oz. (1.5 L) glass blending jug is scratch-resistant. Make sure to fit the jug and the blade together and lock them into place tightly before blending to prevent messes.

I have since found out that many people are experiencing the same problem with this blender.

There is a small black seal under the blades, not the large seal which seals the cutter assembly to the glass jar.

Don't waste your money on this nice looking piece of junk, buy a vitamix if you really want a blender that works.

I initially had a great experience with the Breville BBL600XL blender. It did everything that I wanted, and did it very well. Smoothies, frappes, fruits, veggies, all that I wanted it to do. I didn't have any problems with the frequently discussed leaking large seal.

But the problem with my unit, and after much internet research, I believe others are having the same problem as well, but just haven't disassembled and diagnosed the problem. I have done exactly that, and here is what I have found.

There is a small black seal under the blades, not the large seal which seals the cutter assembly to the glass jar. Here is what I believe is occurring: The liquid from the ingredients, which are blended, eventually leak under this black seal (which is underneath the 3 blades inside the jar), and into a bearing which is part of the blade assembly. This bearing should be a high quality food quality sealed bearing, but this particular bearing is not either, a)high quality, or b)not sealed as it should be.

The liquid leaks into the bearing, eventually causing internal failure of the bearing, and in which case the bearing seizes (no longer rotates, or does not rotate freely).

Two things then happen: 1)the black rubber seal underneath the blades will disintegrate, and you will only find this out when you notice a burnt smell (produced from the black rubber seal) and bits of black rubber seal in your drink. You will also discover that your drink doesn't taste quite right. You will then wonder what the small black bits are in your drink, as you don't remember putting anything like that in the blender. You will then know the the bearing, of which I speak, has failed.

After owning two inferior blenders, I wanted one for our family that was powerful, sturdy, relatively quiet, easy to clean and good-looking. This blender is simply the best blender we have ever owned.

First, it is very powerful. You should have no problem using it for everything blenders are usually used for, including crushing ice, which it does amazingly well. It has a separate smoothie button that is fantastic: it varies the speed during the blending process and helps you create perfect smoothies, with no effort on your part. The blender shuts off automatically after using the smoothie or other preset functions, and has a digital display that counts down and tells you how long it will take to finish blending.

Perhaps most importantly, the curved blades and concave container are designed in such a way as to reduce or eliminate the amount of food that gets stuck in the bottom of the blender. In fact, after using it a few times, I was pleasantly surprised to find NO unblended pieces of food at the bottom of the blender. Everything was blended.

Regarding noise, this is by far the quietest blender I have ever encountered. With such a powerful motor, I'm not sure how they did it. I am a professional composer and have very sensitive ears, and the relative low volume of this blender is something I definitely appreciate. Don't get me wrong: it's a blender, so it still makes noise, but it is definitely NOT as loud as inferior blenders priced less than $100.

The base and container are quite heavy and will stay put when you are blending. It giggles a little when blending on a high setting (there are sturdy rubber feet that help to reduce noise), but it won't move on your counter.

Key things to notice:

1. You just press one button, then you can leave the room.
2. Results are very smooth.
3. Much less noice, no squealing particularly.

There has been a lot of press recently about how commercial smoothies are rarely nutritious because they use juice and have no fat and protein. Add your own nuts and seeds, and us things like guava pulp (high in fiber and lycopene), and you can turn that all around. With this blender, even with things added, the results are smooth.

Not sure what is up w/the price here. I found this thing @ Macy's no sale for $149. Maybe it's an older model. This thing is also great for making sauces and dressings, which regular blenders are generally awful at.

After you use one of these, you'll never go back to a whimpy blender. It's relatively QUIET, but most importantly, its POWERFUL. I bought this becasue Porular Mechanics rated it the best, and I'm convinced they were correct. It will start right up under a heavy load of solid friut or vegetables. Try that with the standard blenders most folks use. This feature is important if you're making healthy shakes or smooties. Lesser blenders will wear out out soon with steady use of these heavy loads. When it's done the smoothies are truly smooth. That's also a great feature this unit offers over most of the competition. The ability of the Ikon 750 to crush ice is almost beyond belief. You get what you pay for with this high priced blender. Hat tip to Glenn Reynolds on the Popular Mechanics review.
