Works very well - but it leaks.
on 8 May 2014
I have been using this for a month now and am very pleased with it with the exception that the smoothie leaks under the blade attachment and around the motor. Nothing has blown up yet but I am tired of having to clean up around the motor and all the bits there that are difficult to clean. On several occasions, the smoothie has actually leaked right through and out through the base. I have checked and it doesn't appear to be coming out anywhere near the cord which is in a closed 'tunnel' so I do continue to use it.
I contacted Breville who said that they would send another blade part. I am still waiting so will take the whole lot back to the shop I bought it from for an exchange with the hope that this is just a faulty blender.
The lid closes well, the stopper at the top snaps shut tightly and in general, I am very pleased with this. The only thing that is annoying is the shape of the bottle - it is difficult to scrape out the thicker smoothies from the sides of the bottles.
Hopefully, this is just a faulty blender.
