"Poorly constructed."1.0 starson by danjv
Pros: Lots of power, good looks.
Cons: Poor quality
Summary: After a year of making a couple of smoothies a week the blade assembly bearings have failed. this is due to liquid leaking into them because of a cheap seal under the cutter blades allowing liquid into the bearings. When turning the blades by hand they make a grinding sound and everything is very loose. Now if I use it i will get a bunch of black powder on top of the base unit from the loose bearings wobbling around. My cheap old black and decker outlasted this piece of junk by ten years.
