Bandleader and inventor Fred Waring introduced the first blender in 1936; more than 60 years later the Waring blender remains the standard for the field. This one, a hardworking blender with a durable glass pitcher and a sturdy metal base, can quickly pulverize ice or purée a vichyssoise to creamy smoothness. The stainless-steel blade is removable on this model, and the plastic ring that attaches the blade to the pitcher feels a little light for such a heavy blender. Those in doubt might go with one of Waring's fixed-blade blenders. With a one-year appliance warranty, though, there's plenty of time to test this one out. --Maria Dolan

My Grandmother had a Waring Blendor. My Mother had a Waring Blendor. Why did I have to BUY one instead of "borrowing" one of theirs? Because they gave them away to get "lighter", i.e., cheap, plastic blenders, back in the early eighties. Big mistake. My grandmother died before she had to replace hers, but my mother is on her third cheap blender now. I expect my Waring Blendor to last the rest of my life. Fortunately, I was able to get my grandmother's Waring Blendor Cookbook from the forties. The current model still has the powerful motor, heavy glass container, super-duper cord and top-quality switch that my grandmother's had, sixty-odd years ago.
I also picked up one at Goodwill to have an extra pitcher to make two kinds of frozen drinks when I have a party. It is about forty years old but still works great, and it was obviously used quite a bit. (I only wish I had found it before I bought a new one!) The container still fits the base on the current model.
Makes fruit juice like a juicer, makes the best milk shakes, daquiries, gazpacho; it can even whip cream for dessert or froth milk for fancy coffee drinks! You can make a thick, creamy milkshake with milk, a frozen banana, a couple of ice cubes, and a little chocolate powder. You can even pre-chill the container in the freezer to make sorbet.
The secret difference: this Blendor creates a tornado in the center of the container, ensuring that everything gets evenly mixed. According to my Waring Blendor Cookbook, this is because of the unique four-leaf clover shape of the container, the shape of the no-rust stainless blades, and the high-powered motor.
You can use a wooden spoon through the hole in the top to make sure ice cubes get properly mixed if you find that to be a problem.

I'm not sure what's going on here, cuz half these reviews seem to say it works great. I decided to make a daquiri using the simple recipe of a Bacardi mixer, rum and ice. I've done this in an el cheapo Osterizer by pre-crushing the ice with an ice crusher. The selling point for this was that I could just put in the ice cubes and skip the extra step.

I heard the same loud noise, and the same funky smells, as other reviewers. Further, looking at the rubber-covered wheel on the base which is supposed to drive the blades, the rubber was peeled and disintegrated, and moreover, there were small chips of metal all over the place. After one use.

I have difficulty believing that this is just a fluke, especially with these other reviews.

I wouldn't call this product "Professional" at all, and I'm surprised that Waring is still trying to sell it.

We're a small restaurant (16 seats), serving dinner 4 nights a week, and we use the blender for soups, Caesar dressing, etc., once or twice a week, but never use ice in it or anything like that. We've had two of this same model now, and had the same problem with both of them. The black collar, the part of the base where you set the container, is plastic, and on both blenders has broken. The first time it lasted almost a year, and we figured that wasn't too bad -- especially when you compare the cost to a true commercial/professional blender, which are $300+. Also, we really like the blender in terms of function, so we picked up another one. This time, the exact same thing happene, except that the collar cracked within 2 weeks!!

My other complaint is that I found Waring Customer Service to be disinterested & unhelpful -- especially because I contacted them about buying a new model, not about problems with the one we had. I saw a model on their website but no purchasing info was listed; I emailed to find out where to purchase, and the rep seemed almost inconvenienced by my inquiry.

My husband and I received this blender as a wedding gift. After only a few weeks, it stopped working completely, so we exchanged it for a new one. We've had the second blender for less than a year now and lately we've noticed the same "burning motor" smell that preceded the breakdown of the first one. I don't expect this blender to last for much longer.

As a blender, it works well, with the celebrated two speeds, which are more than adequate for my blending and pureeing needs. The design is pleasing, the base is well weighted and the container is easy to lift off and put back on the base. Having been exposed to the "twist and lock" Osterizers in the past, just plunking it down and clicking on the switch took a little getting used to, but I think I like it. The handle is the only thing that isn't up to the standard of the rest of the blender, it's slippery and not very ergonomic. I have held other, much more secure feeling and slipless handles, but on the upside, glass is easy to clean. It's also part of the whole "look" of this blender, so I don't expect the handle to improve anytime soon.
Take a look at it in the store before buying it, it's expensive, and you might get a better deal for your money with another brand. But if you would like something on the pretty boy side as well as functional, consider this model. If you're in this price range anyway, maybe the self-cleaning models without the whole blade/rubber gasket combo (as easy as it might be, this gets to be a pain for just a smoothie in the morning) might be worth a serious look.
