Bandleader and inventor Fred Warring introduced the first blender in 1936, and this model pays tribute to that early version in its retro styling. A tall, old-fashioned-looking blender, it will crush ice and blend frozen fruit beautifully in a few seconds. This blender feels sturdy: the lid, with a cap that doubles as a 1-ounce measurer, fits securely, and the pitcher, made of thick, ridged glass, won't wobble. Many chefs prefer a blender rather than a food processor for soups and creamy sauces--the blades of a good blender whirl more quickly than those of a food processor and will refine a thin liquid such as cream of tomato soup to an incomparably silky texture. This blender is definitely up to that task. The fixed, self-cleaning stainless-steel blades on the base of the pitcher mean the lid is the only separate part to wash.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Now, it won't even turn on.
To recap, the blade had two problems and now the motor burned out. In less then a year-and-a-half of light use this thing has had three problems and is now totally dead.
I bought this because it's made in the USA and looked good quality. I've been really disappointed with the quality.
It has never worked great for making smoothies, but I was willing to live with that. But it also keeps failing.
After a few months it stopped blending. It turned out the bolt holding the blade had come loose. I tightened it back up and it worked again.
Now, it's 18 months old and the blade assembly is frozen. It looks like the bearing in the blade assembly has seized.
Avoid this. Don't be fooled into thinking it's quality because it's made in the USA.
The blade assembly in the glass pitcher makes HUGE noise. Grinding sounds, though I can't see a problem that would cause it. Just crazy loud!
My bartender friend chuckled and said take it to the curb.
UPDATE: I am replacing the blender. After dealing with tightening that nut weekly and listening to the roar of this daily, I think I owe it to myself to take this to the curb like by bartender friend said.
While it worked, the motor had a decent amount of power. It certainly wasn't earth shattering, but it got the job done.
The five year warranty should fix the burned out motor, but you have to pay to ship it to Warring. I'm kind of wondering if I should even bother. I regret not shelling out for a higher quality blender, such as a Vitamix. Perhaps I should just bite the bullet and stop chasing bad money with good.
Update: I have left multiple emails and voicemail messages for Warring's customer service group in order to get warranty service information. They haven't responded to a single one. So I guess that settles the question on whether I should have this one fixed or just bit the bullet and buy a Vitamix or Blendtec.
Summary: Save yourself the headache and skip Waring. Get yourself a Vitamix or Blendtec instead.
Love the way it looks, love the control (one switch, off / low / high).
Warranty on this is one year, five years on the motor.
I opened it up to see what's going on, and the motor was sparking when I rotated it by hand. I think the motor windings may be burned out, but it's not fixable. Unfortunately I didn't realize that the motor itself does have a five year warranty, so I made the mistake of throwing it away, when it could have been fixed.
I bought a Vitamix which has a seven year warranty and gets great reviews.
Not sure how this compares with a Vitamix for making smoothies b/c I've never tried one, and it's probably not as good, because my smoothies are somewhat chunky, but it's good enough for me, I like the style, the steel, the size, and the price. But I'd be hesitant to recommend as an alternative to something like Vitamix that has reputation for pulverizing anything.
