    • I’ve used this blender three times and it BROKE
    • It lack any power and smelled like it was overheating the first time I used it
    • It has a hard time blending the frozen fruit
    • you welcomed the challenge the first time you guffawed at those higher priced machines designed to lay waste anything less than a 9 on the Mohs scale
    • Update hamilton beach is giving me a hard time returning it.
    • This time the whole bottom started smelling like burnt rubber and smoking!!!
    • It has a hard time blending frozen fruit, which is annoying since that’s what I bought it for
    • but it takes very little time to blend ingredients and shouldn't bother the neighbors.
    • I rinse it in the sink and put in the dish washer and it's like new every time
    • The blending power could be a little better for some things, as sometimes solid chunks have a hard time getting sucked into the blades, but a little shake usually works that out.
    • First time I used it, the blade broke off from the bottom of the blender, spilling my protein shake everywhere
    • The blending power could be a little better for some things, as sometimes solid chunks have a hard time getting sucked into the blades, but a little shake usually works that out.
    • This blender has a really hard time blending anything with ice
    • I also had a hard time getting pieces of food that became constantly caught in the crack surrounding the blade section
    • I noticed the motor starting to have a hard time about 4 months
    • I gave three tries and it leaked every single time I used it, regardless if I were making fruit smoothie or protein shakes
    • It has already quit working use it one time you can hear the motor running thats it
    • you welcomed the challenge the first time you guffawed at those higher priced machines designed to lay waste anything less than a 9 on the Mohs scale
    • I have to take the pitcher off the base several times, shake it, and put it back several times before my smoothie is drinkable
    • It lack any power and smelled like it was overheating the first time I used it
    • My daughter is the one who cooks and she's thanked me a million times for purchasing this blender cos it blends so well and is so easy to clean
    • I attached a picture where you can see the “blended oats”.I know whoever is considering this blender is looking for a cheaper alternative to the expensive ones, but don’t waste your time or money
    • and I only used it 4 times and each time had the issue
    • You can smell the rubber burning and the inside of the machine every time you use it
    • if you didn’t mind half-mixed powder, a strong odor of burning plastic every time you use it and frozen
    • The blender had a hard time even chopping small chunks of ice.
    • I've used it a total of 6 times so far and it only worked great 1 out of the 6 (blended liquids), it worked just ok 1 other time (made a smoothie with fruit and ice) and it sucked all 4 other times (smoothie, herbs and seasoning blend, pureed pumpkin, can't remember)
    • Especially this time around we have been VERY gentle with it, knowing of the previous issue (lasted about a year this time vs. 3-4 moths the first time arounf)
    • It came at the right time
    • It also has a hard time with ice and frozen fruits/veggies
    • n’t be too bad and longevity will hopefully compensate
    • I was so angry and disgusted with this item which bearing in mind was a replacement which had the same problem as a previous one I
    • must go to an e-waste dump.
