This blender worked as well as everyone says... for 4 months. Then it died. It screeches horribly when you turn it on. It's warranted for one year, so we went to Breville's website & called them on the phone. We spent a whole day trying to call, we used their "callback service" but never heard back, we waited on hold for several hours. Then at exactly 5:00pm after all that holding on the phone, a voice abruptly stated: "We have closed for the day (period)." Breville bills itself as a premium company. We might well never buy a Breville product again.
UPDATE 1/27/09: Well, after a few more days of trying to reach Customer Service, they finally called us back, admitting how busy - or understaffed - they were. They asked only one question: "What number is scratched into the bottom plastic of the blender." That must have been a production batch number, and immediately they said "We'll send a label for shipping it back. Pack it up, ship it, and we'll send you a new blender." That was good news. So we found a box, padded the glass jar, and took it to FedEx Ground. Finally, today, after six weeks without it, we have received a new blender. We'll give an update when we see how this one holds up.
UPDATE 3/3/09: After 5 weeks of use, the replacement blender is holding up. We hope that the first motor was from a bad production run. If we consider buying a Breville product again we will first call customer service to see if it is easier to get through to them.
UPDATE 7/7/09: Our replacement blender is still working, but one belonging to a friend died a week after his warranty expired. This is not a very encouraging record.
UPDATE 8/15/2011: We used our replacement blender sparingly for two years (about once every other week at most, & only to make simple smoothies).

When our 10 year old blender broke, we decided to buy another blender. Our previous blender was somewhat loud and always seem to have a problem with ice and other hard foods.

So many blenders have a problem because they create a pocket of air, therefore you must stop the machine every now and then to force the material back down. Most are loud, and most importantly... most do not have enough power to blend and chop ice.

My wife wanted to buy a professional blender like the smoothie and coffee shops have, however the costs involved quickly dispelled any thought of obtaining one.

I found a few publications/editorials that rated the Breville blenders a "cut above" most other blenders.

Since we love ice cream and shakes, chopping ice is one of the most important features that a blender can have for us. In fact this is the crucial test that really makes a good blender... it's motor and how it tackles this job.

We purchased the Breville blender and received it in the mail. Upon opening the box, I immediately liked the design and well crafted parts. Even the electrical plug had a unique design that made plugging into the wall a little easier (which came with a plug cover). All the parts seem solid and thick. The top cover, had a solid rubber seal with a nice round finger hold to open the cover after you've finished. This part is also VERY NICELY designed and crafted.

It seems to be made like the old 1950-60's blenders and my wife was happy about that too.

I got it out, plugged it in and turned it on to test it.

Some have stated that the Breville are extremely quiet and powerful. It is true that the blender has plenty of power, for I tested it with big ice "chunks" and didn't have much of a problem with the ice.

My husband wanted a new blender for Christmas and after researching blenders on Cook's Illustrated and Amazon, I decided to take a chance with the Breville. I am so glad I did. This is a GREAT blender. It's incredibly quiet compared to our old blender. It's powerful. It's super easy to clean. I have only one complaint about it. Taking out the top can be challenging. That said, my husband has no problem with it. I find it easier if I push in the lid half-way. No mess is created and I can pull out the top without spilling. All in all, we are very satisfied with the Breville Ikon 610-watt blender.

This blender looks great on the counter. Sexy stainless styling, red and blue backlit buttons, a fearsome looking set of blades.

So what's the beef?

Form does not follow function in this machine.

Blade assembly is separated from base with a ridged, whimpy rubber gasket, that inevitably collects food and is difficult to position. Blade assembly/gasket takes some skill and torque to align and twist on. Top is difficult to wedge on and remove.

These problems could be overlooked, if not for major overheating that goes on when the machine is run. The machine has timed settings, most of them lasting no more than 60 seconds. My thoughts here, that the 60 seconds is less for convenience and more about 60 seconds being the outer limit that this appliance can be run, before it implodes from overheating. The knob that sticks down into the base gets hot enuf to burn.

I've used mine mostly for smoothies.
When its in the mood, it does a nice job, only leaving chunks of some of the larger pieces of fruit. My thoughts here are that the broader base design, does not adequetly funnel food towards the blades.

My trophy wife blender divorced me yesterday in a cloud of gray smoke and what looked like black rubber coffee grounds left between the motor and the upper assembly. The brew I had been mixing, was full of a foul plastic taste, presumably from the same rubber that was found in its nether parts and perfuming the air with its stench.

Next time out, I'll be looking for a less expensive blender, that may not have the good looks of the Breville, but will do what blenders were made to to with less drama.
