Seal on blade attachment broke after 1 month. Disappointing.
on 29 May 2016
I bought this Genie Multi-Attachment blender on 4th April 2016. I read the reviews and although I was a little concerned that there were a few negative reviews about it breaking quite quickly after purchase, however, I thought at the cheaper price, it would be worth the risk. I often think that some people like to complain about anything and sometimes they don't look after the things they buy, therefore I took their reviews with a pinch of salt. I wanted a Nutri-bullet type blender but it seemed quite expensive and if you can get the same sort of thing, much cheaper...why spend the extra money, right?
Just over a month after buying this device - using almost every morning - the seal on the blade attachment broke. While blending, the rubber seal must have fallen out of position and into the cup and was blended along with the fruit and veg in my morning smoothie.
Until then I would've given it 4 stars but now I am obviously very disappointed. As it is over the 30 day returns window I am unable to get my money back. Looking at the 'frequently asked questions' it looks like the company doesn't provide a spare blade attachment (I would be willing to pay a reasonable price - although I think they should provide a new one for free as it is clearly shoddy workmanship). I would have to buy a whole new Hinari blender and (despite what my friends think) I'm not that stupid.
I wouldn't waste my money on one of these products to save money - it's a false economy. This is unless you're only wanting to have smoothies for a month, in which case I highly recommend this product.
