As others have said, Black & Decker can't make a blender. When it did work (for about a year of light use) it demonstrated that it can't blend ice at all. You end up with ground ice that resembles rock salt.

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.

A friend of mine was getting rid of this blender and offered it to me. It only needed a new lid, so I figured since it was such a well-known brand, it would be worth the cost of replacement. Unfortunately, that was a complete waste of money. This product was not worth keeping in the first place! It's okay for say ice cream and milk, but anything even slightly more heavy-duty, and this thing is useless. It leaves ice in giant chunks, makes goo out of fruit, and leaks at the base. You end up with a watery, mushy mixture full of chunks, a burning smell from the overworked motor, and a sticky kitchen counter. I recommend that no one waste their money on this product.

I bought this product last year in target, and now it doesn't work anymore. Most of the time it got a burning smell from the overworked motor. I used it 2 times a week for basic mixtures. Most of the time I got a mess when I turned on the blender. I had to put the cover, my hands, anything to avoid a spill, but no matter what I do, always poured. Finally, the jar ring base broke and the plastic that cover the blades melted, so I can't use anymore. I had a very bad experience with this product. I don't recommend it. If I could, I put ZERO stars.

My son used this blender at another house and liked it. He drinks protein smoothies almost daily. Within a few days of use, he said he felt it was losing power. After 3 weeks, it gave out. We put in crushed ice, frozen fruit and fruit juice - he knows he has to add enough juice to not overwhelm the blender. Our last one (Oster) lasted over a year, so it wasn't a problem with technique. Amazon didn't have reviews but once it broke down, I found lots of poor reviews on other websites. Best to avoid this blender, IMO.

We bought this thinking BD was a decent brand. Well it turned out to be a cheaply engineered POS. After a few months of very infrequent use, maybe 5 times total, we started using it to make fruit smoothies, no ice. Just fruit, and it couldn't handle it. The lights come on and there is a click, but nothing else happens. Also as other have said there is a really strong burnt rubber smell when using it. We couldn't find the receipt so I decided to tear it apart and maybe find a fuse or something. No such luck. I did find the source of the burnt rubber smell, a rubber piece that sits at the top around the shaft. Its made of that really super cheap rubber that smells awful, you find alot of it used in Harbor Freight products. Well thats it, DO NOT buy this blender. I will not be buying ANY BD products after seeing how cheaply their products are being made now a days. My Hamilton Beach (cheap also) blender lasted years with heavy abuse, ice and making peanut butter. We gave that to a sister in law, big mistake.

After using for a few days, motor stops and smells slightly burnt when blending a typical fruit-ice smoothie.

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.
