Doesn't blend smoothies

So this review is more about the general trend towards crappy design and performance of manufacturing. We bought this blender because the last Breville blender we had was made of glass and rock solid but we broke the glass jug and breville weren't making them anymore. That thing had balls and would blend anything.

This thing is plastic and takes forever to blend ice smoothies. It seems most appliances these days have gone down the path of flashy looks but poor performance and longevity. I don't know if it is deliberate so we upgrade every few years or because our manufacturing has all been outsourced to places like China but I won't buy breville again in the future. Show details

Didn't do the job it was supposed to

Bought it for blending green smoothies. I add banana, carrot, celery, spinach and pear and a few cups of water. I was blending for quite some time and pulsating as well and used various settings of which none seemed to blend smoothly without lots of bits still floating and a couple of larger chunks that looked like a conglomerate of fruit fur balls. I was really disappointed in the lack of smoothness especially after such a long time blending. I had an old Phillips blender that suddenly died and it was over twenty years old that did a better job than this one. Maybe better used for smoother items like bananas or berries. Show details

Great blender with excellent capacity

I really like this blender. Coming from having a glass jug blender, this one is so much lighter and the jug is 100 times easier to clean. It easily and quickly makes smoothies with the smoothie button. I even make my pancake mix in it which turns out light fluffy pancakes with minimal mess. The only drawback, although it is not an issue for me, is that it is loud but realistically what blender that works isn’t loud? Show details

Excellent blender for my smoothies

Amazing blander with lot of functions, specially like dedicated smoothie function. Jug quality is great though not glass, but its tough, vey satisfied the other functions of this blender and the price is very economical, handling and cleaning is very easy. Bit noisy. Show details

Very happy with this fantastic blender

Love this blender and particularly its well thought out design. Bought to replace a Nutribullet which was too fiddly and small and this does the job easily with its powerful motor and makes an awesome smoothie. Looks good, easy to clean, great design, great performance, and at a good price - well done Breville. Show details

Perfect blender

I am very happy with this purchase.

Pros: Powerful Motor. it as presetting that are helpful. Has an automatic cleaning presetting. I like that it doesn't have to many parts, so its simple.

Cons: Loud, need a better lid design, pretty heavy compared to nutribullet.

I have owned nutribullet before but this blender is much better in quality and performance for similar price

Can’t get the job done !

This Blender just doesn’t have what it takes. All I make is fruit smoothies and this hunk can’t liquifie my fruit without me constsnatly removing the top to shake the contents around or adding extra water. Food needs to be cut up extra small to prevent it all sitting above the blades as they spin.

Would defiantly shop around.

Very Happy With This

This replaced an old Breville that was way past its good days. - what a difference! ThIs is so powerful in comparison and really liquifies fruit as opposed to mushifying. Very effective machine and easy to clean once it has done its work - good choice

Perfect item for price tag

Have been using this blender/mixer for a month now and we are quite happy with it. For the price tag it does what is expected. It is a bit loud but not annoying.

The chop option is not quite what we expected. It can't be used for chopping things.

Overall happy with the purchase.

Ok

It’s ok, not the sturdiest thing, really not the best with blending things, things really need to be broken down already for it to just finish the job. Buy some thing better, unless u just want to blend soup.

We’re looking for a blender to make smoothies using fruits straight from the freezer ie. frozen berries, mango, nanas etc. How does this blender perform? Any feedback appreciated.

Hi Amy, I have always used fresh or thawed fruits and the smoothie function. The manual does say " When blending drinks with ice cubes or frozen fruits, use PULSE in short bursts". Hope this helps.
