Don't be fooled by good looks,
This review is from: Bodum BISTRO Blender (BPA-Free Plastic, Rubber Handle, Adjustable speed, 1.25 L/42 oz) - Black (Kitchen & Home)
I bought the blender in July 2012 - I've had Bodum products in the past and as well as being really reliable they just look good! The blender has been used 3/4 times a week mainly to make smoothies for breakfast. Everyday performance was disappointing. The jug is really light and so when the motor is on it doesn't sit quite square on the base. This causes the motor to strain unless you steady the jug with your hand. in addition the design of the jug meant that no matter how I pulsed or blended there was always some unblended fruit at the bottom. To top it all the blender motor gave up last week - only 7 months old. I've replaced it with the Kenwood KMix - a bit more expensive but the quality and performance is way superior.
