Great but flawed.
on 24 May 2017
Well it works great. It's very neat and tidy. It doesn't make much noise. It's stylish and doesn't take up much room. However, there's a design flaw which has meant we're now on the second unit and this one has failed too. 2 units failing within 6 months...not great.
The flaw is that the nut which holds the cutting blade to the cutter base, cuts into the plastic under the stress of cutting frozen fruit. It continues to do this until it's stripped it completely. The blade then doesn't work because it spins in the base rather than being driven by it. If Breville put a metal nut shaped insert into the base rather than a plastic one, it would fix the problem completely.
So, it's a great product if you only want to blend mushy food. If you want to blend frozen fruit at all, forget it.
