I admit, I fell in love with the looks of this blender at first, but also because it had a substantial glass jar, as I like to crush ice, and blend hot purees for soup and the plastic/polycarbonate ones just feel cheap. I research extensively as with all my kitchen appliances, as I am an avid, daily cook. Breville had a quality reputation and as with any product, it had some poor reviews, but more good than bad, so I crossed my fingers and made the *****purchase of this blender at *****. It has a powerful motor, runs suprisingly quiet compared to my past blenders but then the fun stopped. There is a design flaw in the jar where it meets the outer silver base. When you wash it, water seeps in and you can't get it out then it turns into gross crud. It is a huge production to unscrew to clean (they include a "plastic tool" to help with this job) as it is a pain! If you don't screw it on tight, it leaks, if you screw it on too tight, you can't get it off to clean! AUGH! I owned it and used it daily for about 2 months, then the motor died. Thank goodness I kept my receipt and Macy's has a 180 day satisfaction guarantee return policy. I returned the blender and went to look at others and funny thing was there were 3 Brevilles left on the shelf and they were all used, dirty and rusted! Guess I wasn't the only one disappointed. Move onto to another brand, I am....
