  • Waring PBB Top Blender and Why You Should Purchase this Blender

    Jul 3, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solidly constructed, works well, good looking machine, will have it for decades
    Cons: None that I have found

    Summary: One of the best gifts we received from our wedding registery was a blender. I cannot tell you how many times we have thought about margarita's and other things that involve blending something and were unable because we did not have a blender. Alas, we ... read more

  • Waring PBB --- Built like it should be!

    Apr 4, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Durable, functional, simple and heavy.
    Cons: More expensive, simple and heavy.

    Summary: I've read about how great the Professional Bar Blender (PBB) that Waring makes, but I'll share my experience. In the 20-30's Fred Waring was a very successful musician and big band leader. Had been a Architecture/Engineering student at Penn State. ... read more

  • Outstanding blender

    Dec 20, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Simple, strong, sturdy, easy cleaning, blends thick frozen food well
    Cons: No safety switch

    Summary: I have been using a blender for the past 15 years or so that I bought for mixing drinks in college. It was a low-end model, but performed adequately for the occasional tasks for which I used it. Recently, however, I have begun drinking fruit smoothies ... read more

  • Fred Waring and his blender

    Apr 10, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy, fast, powerful, smart design
    Cons: Initially, not the prettiest thing I've ever seen, but it grows on you.

    Summary: Our 1 year old blender died and my husband and I began looking around for a replacement. After reading many reviews, honey surprised me with a Chili Red Waring blender. Though I had wanted something sturdy that would last and be worth the money ... read more

  • Returned the PBB209 for a Waring Pro MegaMix HPB300

    Sep 11, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Attractive. Glass jar that's not too big. Heavy-duty base.
    Cons: Not powerful enough to make a super-thick smoothie. Emits bad odor. Plastic lid stiff.

    Summary: This is the second blender I've purchased after reading positive Epinions.com reviews about them. I've been disappointed with both. I make a smoothie every morning for breakfast, with soy milk, flavor extracts, protein and cocoa powders, stevia, ... read more

  • Retro Style And Powerful Performance

    Mar 31, 2004 by

    Pros: Commercial grade construction and components. Self-cleaning blade assembly. Relatively quiet operation. Great retro looks.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: The first time we saw the Retro Green Waring Pro PBB Blender we knew what a beautiful addition it would make to our refreshment center. Not only did we purchase this Waring Classic product, but followed it up purchasing what we felt was an ideal ... read more

  • Is it wrong to love a blender?

    Dec 16, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great looking, solid, performs well, easy to clean.
    Cons: 3 prong plug - this small inconvenience is easily resolved with an adapter.

    Summary: I’m in agreement with other Epinion reviewers who have given The Waring PBB and the Waring MBB an enthusiastic thumbs up. I believe the only difference between the two models is that the MBB has a metal finish and the PBB has an enameled finish. ... read more

  • terrible blender

    Rated Show
    Pros: None
    Cons: It made a mess of my whole kitchen.

    Summary: I attempted to make some squash soup in this blender and it sprayed all over my kitchen. I tried a second and third time with both of my hands clamped on the lid with the same results. I had it turned on low. The soup ingredients were cooked to soft so ... read more

  • Leaks, not powerful enough, expensive...

    Aug 5, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Looks nice.
    Cons: Leaks. Insufficient power. Blade often spins freely and doesn't mash stuff up.

    Summary: This blender is supposed to be of 'professional' caliber, but if you subjected this to the kind of work load a blender receives at e.g. Jugo Juice, etc, it would break down after a few hours, in my opinion. We've had ours for a few years, and it's ... read more
