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

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.

Reviews suggest it'is a great buy for the money compared with models twice as expensive (Vitamix, etc.)

Reviews were very good for the price of the product, coming in second to Vitamix. Plus, with a gift certificate, it was now within my price range.

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 didn't find anything specific to decibels either, but it is described as slightly noisier than the Vitamix 5200.

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!
