Not sure about the reviewers that think this heavy gizmo is powerful. I have been using a Braun corded immersion blender for over a year and it is far more powerful and cost $30 when I bought it new last year. Bought this Breville for the cordless convenience, but it stalls out often, even on full charge. The built in rechargeable batteries are only replaceable by sending it back to the manufacturer, and the cordless unit is much heavier than a corded unit so this probably won't be cheap when the time comes. As mentioned in other reviews, the power and speed switches are inconvenient and would probably not be recommended for anyone with arthritis or anyone lacking in manual dexterity. The "smoothie" attachment is made of cheap plastic, including the "blade" so if you like your smoothies with frozen fruit or ice, forget about using this attachment. For ice crushing you must use another attachment, but if you are a bodybuilder trying make a drink by mixing protein powders, supplement powders and ice cubes, you better get one of the many other immersions blenders on the market that sell for a third of the price, because this Breville just isn't powerful enough to do it without stalling unless you add more liquid than you probably care to drink. The cordless feature is nice, and for that it gets a star. It gets another for looking adequately attractive and for coming with all the attachments mentioned in the manual (i.e., nothing extra to buy). If you don't need the cordless feature, you might want to save your money and buy a more powerful, versatile version of this product for a fraction of the price.

I am now on my second Breville mixer since March (six months). I use the thing twice a day to blend one half cup cottage cheese with three tablespoons of fish oil & a little milk. After a month or two, the mixer will stall out. At first I thought I was relaxing the pressure on the buttons but don't think that's it. I'll be returning this second one to Williams Sonoma for store credit. I'm here on amazon to find a different brand. The Breville does clean up very easily -- perhaps with less intensive use it would be a fine machine -- not for me.

I purchased one of these immersion blenders a few years ago. I wanted the cordless functionality for making cream soups, sauces, etc.. I had the same problem that 90% of the Amazon reviewers had. I have an A. of Engineering degree, so I knew that the problem of stalling, lack of power, etc. had something to do with the "drive train", so I started checking. I did find the problem: The company that made power packs for these units simply used cheap/defective NiMH cells in their packs. I contacted Breville and they reluctantly sent me a new pack which I installed myself and NOW the unit is EXCELLENT! No stalling, no power loss problems, long use between charges. They had to have known about this, but a "recall" would have been impossible. I will rebuild the pack when the time comes (8 AA cells with tabs) and will use higher capacity NiMH cells. As for the controll buttons I hate them, but they are necessary due to safety regulations (when kids are in the house). They are the same as the scheme used by other companies, so what can I say? I am single so I may just override the safety button, but then you never know when a kid will show up! Better safe than sorry.

This was a terrible waste of money. It is a very atractive device that just doesn't work. It never will run longer than 20 seconds at a time. The battery has plenty of juice because if you wait 30 seconds it will run for another 20 seconds. It works great for 20 seconds.

I'm not sure if the bad reviews are written by people that have read the instructions, but it seems clear to me that they are not using this product correctly. First of all, if you are making a drink that has ice included, you always use the stainless steel blender. If it was just a milkshake with ice cream, then you can use the smoothie attachment. Personally, my breakfast drink in the morning always has some ice mixed with soymilk, soyogurt, flax meal, soy protein powder, stevia and flavoring (I use Frontier). The Breville works perfectly every time. The "stalling out" occurs to protect the motor--not a problem, though. The mixing jug is polycarbonate--I prefer glass, but that is simple enough to change. The polycarbonate jug is pretty tough, though. The Breville BCS500XL is heavier than the corded models, but I much prefer the extra weight to the cord. When I use it to puree soups (which is SOOOO much better than trying to use a regular blender) I prefer not to have a cord hanging across the counter and stovetop. I really love this product!! If you question anything about it, just buy it from a good dealer that accepts returns without hassles.

In summary, this unit takes up little space on the countertop, is light enough for a wimp like me, is easy to use (two buttons have to be pushed at once--can you handle that?), is actually a 9.6 volt and works like a dream! Did I mention that I love this product?!!

I purchased this Breville Cordless Immersion Blender a year ago and have been satisfied with my purchase. I bought it because I frequently make smoothies (at least 3-4 times per week) and puree soups and wanted something more convenient than lugging down my full-sized blender. Because I have a small galley kitchen I also wanted something that could sit on my countertop while taking up minimal space.This has fit the bill for me.

When I first received this blender I found it a bit tricky to use as for safety purposes you have two hold down two buttons simultaneously, the Power button and Speed button. At first it was very awkward and I found myself using two hands, but over time I have become more comfortable with this arrangement and can do it mindlessly with one hand.

From a power standpoint, this blender meets my needs. I use it to blend thick dips and smoothies with frozen fruit and it does so efficiently. I use it so often infact that my regular blender no longer gets much use. As another reviewer mentioned it does stall out periodically to protect the motor (and does so more frequently with thick mixtures or ones containing ice), but this hasn't caused me a problem. It is functional again within seconds so it does not really slow down my preparation. I would agree it would be much better if this wasn't necessary, but haven't found it to be too annoying. I have also never had a problem with it running out of a charge when I am using it. I always keep it in the charging base between uses and as a result have always found it has enough power for what I need.

I have also found the product to be very durable despite using it 4+ times per week.
