Works well, but the bowl doesn't clean completely.
on 16 January 2017
I bought this in 2014, so it had lasted 2 years and I used it everyday. It was still working well mechanically, but I had to throw it away because there was a smell that would not go away. I bleached it, I used Milton tablets, nothing worked. I don't know how long the smell was there because I didn't notice it until I stored it overnight with the lid on it. When I took the lid off, the smell was horrible. After that, I realized that it smelled if you smelled inside it, up close. It appears it was coming from under the metal post in the middle of the bowl. The post is what the blade mechanism fits onto. It seems that the bit that holds the post in is not sealed and so food/liquids leak into it. After trying everything I could think of to disinfect it, the smell just wouldn't go away, so I had to throw it away. I just don't know when it started to smell because I always stored it with the lid off, so I can't say how long it takes for that to happen. For that reason, I won't buy this again.
