Verified Purchase
First one I received suffered from two defects:

1) The plastic "stirring rod" has a small void in the mold of the handle. This manufacturing defect indicates that the handle is (potentially significantly) weakened and risks breaking/shattering when subjected to the forces exerted upon it from the user's grip and the blender during use. This is dangerous.

2) The heavy-gauge power cord has been *cut* during the manufacturing process, splitting the insulation and exposing live wires to moisture and/or human contact. This is of course HIGHLY DANGEROUS.

It is shocking (no pun intended) that the second (or really both of them) could have passed even a cursory QA inspection during manufacturing. But, I assumed this may have been an anomaly, and allowed Amazon to ship me a replacement. Also, I emailed pictures of the damage to the Customer Service dept but also two manager/director employees within the Customer Service heirarchy at the MVP Group, the company that produces this Axis line/brand. I asked them if this was as disturbing to them as it was to me, or indicative of the build quality.

None of the three contacts at the company replied to my email, and when the replacement arrived from Amazon I was disappointed (but not altogether surprised) to find that while it didn't have the same defects, the rubber lid did not seal fully against the blender jar/jug, and while the "on/off" mode worked (the variable speed control did too, though it smelled of burning rubber, esp at higher speeds), the "Pulse" mode was COMPLETELY BROKEN. I don't know if the relay was bad, the switch was bad, etc. - and I have no intention of troubleshooting what at this point is clearly a worthless product line.

Amazon is taking back the replacement, I'm taking a full refund, and you might be advised to take your business elsewhere too.
