AWESOME Blender, but short cord!
on January 18, 2011
This blender does everything it says it will do and thensome. I love this thing. I am replacing a Black and Decker that I have had for about 2 years now. I always had to stir, ice would freeze up and stick to the blades and nothign ever really got "mixed" unless I used a spoon to shove it down in the blender so it would all mix together. Who wants to do that? Isn't that why it is called a "blender"?? Anyway, my only reason for not giving this the full stars, is because it is a bit flimsy/plastic-y nad the cord is REALLY short. See if you can get measurements for it before you buy it and make sure it fits the outlet you are planning to use. Luckily for me, I have outlets all over my island, so it wasn't a real problem for me, but it does require that it sit close to the edge. It jumps a bit, so don't start it up and walk away from it or it could end up on the floor. These minor flaws, are nothing compared to the price I paid for this and for how well it grinds, blends and makes a wonderful smoothie in seconds flat. I love this blender AND the fact that replacement parts are CHEAP and can be found at WalMart or here on Amazon.com. I was floored at what the cost of the new glass container was for my Black and Decker! It was $4 more than what I had paid for the stinkin' thing! Again, the cord is short, the buttons / casing are a bit flimsy (but makes it very light for getting into and out of high cabinets) and it vibrates itself off the cabinet if you aren't careful. But it works like a high end blender and is possibly the best blender I have ever owned!
