Then one day the spinning blade shaft welded itself to the plastic blade body, cracked it and now I have no blender. According to other reviewers, the base ring likes to crack as well.
It's a nice looking blender with a stainless steel look...other than that it is a boat anchor. Pity to have to throw it out because of the poor blade and ring design.
Thanks B & D...you've really given yourself a black eye and wasted the consumer's money. Not that corporate America gives a crap anymore.
After reading multiple reviews around the internet, from Cons*mer R*ports to Yaho* Reviews, if you want a real blender, bite the bullet and by a Vitamix. Or don't, and plan to burn out a cheap blender every year...just when you need it most.
Blue LED blinks and machine shuts down as soon as motor overload occurs when blending ice or prunes (without pits) to make a smoothie within the first 20 seconds of operation!! Machine will not restart even if you unplug it and wait for 30 seconds like what the instructions say. Motor must cool down to room temperature before machine will start again which could be 10 minutes or more.
The two cutting blades come riveted at right angles to each other for optimum blending performance but after blending ice, one of the blades got twisted off its axis so the two blades are no longer at 90 degrees to each other.
After blending a citrus smoothie, I left some of the smoothie in the bottom of the jar for a few hours. After drinking all the smoothie and started to take apart the base for cleaning, I noticed that the initially shiny polished metal shaft(which I initially thought was stainless steel) holding the blades was dark grey. When I rubbed it with my finger, to my utter disgust, I observed harmful metal grey oxide coming off the shaft and staining my finger. This oxide may contain lead, zinc or other toxic heavy metals.
The instant corrosion of the metal in contact with your drink is so atrocious and disgusting, you have to wonder why the US government doesn't shut down Applica Consumer Inc. in Florida (sellers of the Black and Decker brand).
I have now decided to contact the relevant government authories in Canada to report this issue as Black Decker may be poisoning their customers with a product containing lead and other harmful materials. I hope USA citizens do the same.
Product is stamped "Made in Mexico" but it may also contain parts made in China. With the lawlessness and chaos in Mexico, quality control and quality standards in Mexico is no better than or probably worst than that in China.

We used it three times and then it just stopped working. It's hard throw a "brand new" blender in the trash, but that is precisely what I just did. What a waste!Published 3 months ago by Debra W. Davis
