    Pros: Lasted 4 years, I wouldn't say daily use, but weekly.
    Cons: That big pitcher can adhere to the base like it's welded on.

    Summary: Update October 2013: I'm typing this while on live chat with KitchenAid... this morning the blender  "jar coupler is fused into the couple on the motor base" or simply stated - it's stuck. Really stuck, like the base suddenly welded itself to the ... read more

  • Blender Carafe Has Faulty Design

    Dec 28, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Strong motor, great at breaking up ice cubes into slush.
    Cons: The blender jar or carafe leaks and cannot be tightened.

    Summary: The motor is strong and as a blender is works pretty well, But it has a major design flaw. The polycarbonate carafe (jar) has a blade assembly that is permanently attached and when it loosens and leaks, as it inevitably will, there is no way to fix it. ... read more

    Pros: The base is metal and seems well constructed. Motor is stong.
    Cons: The pitcher design was poorly thought out.

    Summary: The all in one pitcher/blade assembly is a major flaw. The pitcher leaks and the blade assembly cannot be replaced. Instead of paying $12.00 for a blade assembly you have to pay over 1/2 what you paid for the blender to replace the pitcher.  Almost ... read more
