Amazing blender!
This is by far the best blender I've ever owned. I can't talk about the longevity yet since I've only had it for a weekend but it really is an amazing blender. There is a ""snow"" button that actually chops ice so small it's smaller ice chunks than any snowcone I've ever had. The motor didn't even hesitate on just putting in the ice w/o any liquid to chop it up. We made smoothies that were absolutely perfect by pushing the ""smoothie"" button and the digital display counted down while it transformed the frozen fruit into the best smoothies ever. We blended up a green drink with veggies and without having a juicer machine remove the beneficial fiber. The blade is built in and the bottom doesn't come off at all but it was extremely easy to clean. No leaks at all. The top fit on nice and tight and the pour spout poured smoothly. I think I've found my last brand of blender for life

Awesome Smoothie Blender
After hours of reading reviews, I decided to try the Breville Hemisphere given the good things reported by America's Test Kitchen. Honestly could not afford a Vitamix which is the de facto blender of choice but very costly. Prompt delivery by Sur la Table and I carefully unpackaged this in the event of it not performing as promised. Two weeks later, I have no remorse over the decision. This affordable blender works extremely well and is used at least twice daily for enjoyable smoothies. The warranty is not that of a Vitamix but the results are remarkably equal. Instead of spending time saving for the king of blenders, take the plunge at $199 and start enjoying the smoothie revolution

America's Test Kitchen scored another hit with this recommendation. It is of high quality materials, appears durable and is good value. We have had this unit only a couple of weeks but I am sold on the brand. It is everything Cook's says it is

Overall excellent blender and good value
We bought this blender to replace a cheap model that Consumer Reports rated a ""Best Buy"" but that broke after only a couple of years of very light use.

What a difference. This one is very well designed, solidly built, easy to clean, and has a well-chosen feature set. The quality of the $500+ Vita-Mix models at less than half the price. Overall a great value. We are now finding new ways to use a blender in our cooking routines

A great blender

Best Blender ever
This is just what I was looking for. VERY easy to use and keep clean. Crushes ice beautifully. Wish I'd had this long ago.
June 18, 2013
love this blender!
I bought this blender because it was recommended by America's Test Kitchen, and I agree. It makes perfect smoothies, crushes ice without a problem, Easy program choices including my favorite, self-clean. Its also easy to keep the base clean. Read the booklet because its good to know what you're doing before you start. I'm really happy with it.

My 20 year old Hamilton Beach Blender finally cracked it's plastic base, so I went to Cooks Illustrated for reviews of good blenders. This one was very highly reviewed, and in my price range! Plus I love Sur La Table, so it all worked out.

EDITH E on Sep 30, 2015
I wanted an excellent quality blender with plenty of power for my needs and the bonus of a quiet motor. I was not willing to spend 3 times as much on another big name brand blender that had way more power (and noise) than I need in my kitchen. This Breville blender does not disappoint either in design features or power to get the job done. The finger loop on the power plug to help pull it from the outlet is a special bonus. It saves counter space in my crowded kitchen, too. Got to love that.

Almond butter

Can this blender handle making almond butter?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this blender can be used to make almond butter
Does this product come with a warranty? If so, what are its details

If not, can one be purchased through the store? If so, for how much
A shopper on Jun 5, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Breville has a one year warranty of their products, however all products purchased from Sur La Table carry a 100% Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee. If you are ever disatisfied with your purchase for any reason you can return it for an exchange or refund. Just be sure to retain your proof of purchase for verification purposes
What is the model number of this blender?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2012
How noisy is the Breville model? Can't find db specifications in the description and have a noise-sensitive family member.
A shopper on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know and can't find specifics in the booklets provided with it, but you could try contacting the manufacturer.
Are these red $149 blenders refurbished?
Jack C on Dec 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. We don't sell refurbished products.
Is the pitcher glass or plastic?
jodi s on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's BPA free plastic.
What is the Horse power of this ?Manufacturer: Breville
?Model: BBL605XL
and is this more powerful than Vitamix S30 in making crush ice and almond butter?
Marsha W on Jun 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Breville does not provide the horsepower for this blender. It is comparable to Vitamix in terms of crushing ice, but it I don't see any mention in the manual of making nut butters, so I'm not sure it's powerful enough to do so.
Can this blender make soup?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It doesn't heat up, but if you are asking if it can blend ingredients to make a pureed soup, it most certainly can! I like to use mine to partially blend some legumes to thicken up lentil soup or navy bean soup. I love this blender! it does just about anything!
Is the blade integrated in the pitcher? Do you have to remove it for cleaning?
A shopper on Feb 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It can't be removed.
