Cuisinart Hurricane REVIEW
Colleen Logan says in her review of the Cuisinart Hurricane – “While using the Cuisinart Hurricane, the liquid escapes the jar at the top, between the transparent part and the rest of the lid. This happened while using the blender filled way below the maximum line, the lids properly closed, and turned out as a mess in my kitchen”.
Alexandra Miller mentions in her Cuisinart Hurricane review-“After a couple of months of occasional use it is dull and weak and will no longer crush ice. I have learned my lesson and will count the months until I can justify and enjoy throwing this poor excuse for a blender away”.
Another user Ginger Barton who tried the Cuisinart Hurricane says in her review of it-“In 2 months the jar has started leaking. I’m very disappointed with the Cuisinart Hurricane especially since it comes with such high promise and potential”.
Natasha Stevens who purchased the Cuisinart Hurricane says in her review-“The blender works, more or less, but there is very little control options. You have Low and High, that’s it. Then you can Pulse or Smoothie. It does make good smoothies, but the blender is loud! No amount of all caps can get across how loud this thing is, and they have the nerve to advertise it as being quiet, she adds.
Crystal Payne states in her review of the Cuisinart Hurricane-“The low setting is really fast, it causes the smoothie to splash out. The smoothie setting pulverizes anything in there, the top must be on. I agree with other reviewers, the unit is way louder than prior Cuisinart blender we had”.
Patty Bryant in her review of the Cuisinart Hurricane says that the base is too wide and the blade is too high. She says it cannot grind or puree small things and things get flung to the side and stick there. She’s returning it she adds.
Erica Ward claims in her Cuisinart Hurricane review-“Blade housing came loose after the second week of use. Tightened and it is okay now, but disappointed that this is happening”.
Vitamix Pro 750 REVIEW
Mercedes Blake states in her Vitamix Pro 750 review-“Tried blending some water in and then poured some of it into a white bowl… I saw lots of little black flecks floating around, I tried cleaning it thoroughly (even ran the cleaning cycle a few times) and repeated the water test several times with the same results.
Marta Vargas says in her review of Vitamix Pro 750-“Started using it for ice creams but discovered its struggling to process ice cubes or pieces of frozen fruit. I can sense the motor struggling before it completely stalls. Pity because the partially completed ice creams I created had all the signs of one of the favorite functions for me”.
Rachel Wallace claims in her review of Vitamix Pro 750-“Came to my home dirty. It had water stains like it had been washed and also had food crusted on the lid. The blade also had scratches”.
Becky Harvey complains in her Vitamix Pro 750 review that it broke in just 2 months and the motor burnt out. She also says that the seal of the mixer gave off flecks of black material. It did make funny noises prior to that she says but she didn’t know whether that was normal or not.
Lisa Sutton says in her Vitamix review- “It was sent without a manual and without a CD”.
Another user, Rosa Smith, says in her review of Vitamix-“The on- off button got loose and stopped sitting flush in its housing. While trying to gently move it back into position the button broke apart into about 5 pieces”.
Amy Marsh, in her review of Vitamix says that the black particles actually smear onto the low profile container and is pretty difficult to clean off. The blade design is poor for many things and does a surprisingly bad job of anything that isn’t soft – handles frozen stuff in particular in smoothies is actually worse she adds. She further adds that the Teflon black particle water test fails:
– Plastic carafe (BPA free claim by manufacture of plastic, not by independent testers)
– BPB in plastic
– No Stainless Steel carafe (Some claim Waring 64oz stainless steel will fit and work, may as well just get a Waring Blender)
Tonya Howell complains in her review of Vitamix Pro 750– “The blades just whir above the product and you’ll continually be scrapping the sides and still never get a smooth product. The engine emits burning rubber smell during first runs, she adds.
Oster Performance Pro REVIEW
Angie Martin who bought the Oster Performance Pro says in her review of it-“The bottom of the jar began to leak machine oil, and it seemed to be “trying harder.” It was still blending produce like a pro, so I thought maybe it was still in its ‘break-in’ period”.
Samantha Morris says in her Oster Performance Pro review that she blended something she shouldn’t have. She ran over to pick up the jar and a bunch of tiny metal fragments, metal dust, and ball bearings fell from the bottom of the jar. The only things inside the pitcher were frozen mango, banana, and coconut water she says. And that was the last smoothie she ever made.
Mattie Ramos who purchased the Oster Performance Pro says in her review-“The rubber around the sealed roller bearing for the blade mechanism started falling apart and scattering rubber fakes around the bottom of the blender jar.
One day I made hummus, nothing but oil, lemon juice, some tahini, water, and chickpeas. The blade began to mix it well, then suddenly stopped spinning while the motor was still running making an awful grinding noise. I’m pretty sure hummus, something the consistency of watered down peanut butter, broke this machine”.
Melissa Green complains in her review of the Oster Performance Pro– “It cracked, but it had to have been just due to normal usage, maybe due to the ice in the smoothies?
In her review of the Oster Performance Pro, Jeanne Johnston says-“Does not blend frozen fruit as efficiently or effectively, and it overheats relatively easily.
The design flaw is the C ring keeps cracking. The new one leaked within 3 months. Now the motor is smoking. The motor has started making an awful noise after only one year of use”.
Joann Phillips states in her Oster Performance Pro review-“This blender could not blend kale. Failed completely! Can do milkshakes but not tiny seeds in raspberries which is disappointing she says”.
Gertrude Gordon says in her review of Oster Performance Pro-“Wouldn’t even start when I tried to blend. Red light kept flashing. The plunger was missing. Set it up on the countertop and found out that the blender didn’t sit flat on all 4 legs so it rocked back and fourth”.
Lee Garcia complains in her Oster Performance Pro review-“It has a difficult time blending frozen fruit especially frozen bananas. There are always chunks no matter how long it blends. Second, the stirring stick was too long and when we turned on the blender the stirring stick was getting chopped up. Third, water gets stuck between the container and the metal which the blade is attached to. Fourth, it is really difficult for the blender to dry after washing it. There are not holes in the container for water to drain. The water will just sit if it’s just drying short and wide container”.
Rosemary Black who purchased the Oster Performance Pro writes in her review-“The blender put out an offensive odor when it operated. I assumed it was motor oil burning and it would stop but the odor has not gone away. It leaves a black powder under the blender on my counter top. It must be a result of metal parts being ground as the motor turns”.
Sheila Kelley mentions in her Oster Performance Pro review-“The lid is made from some kind of plastic or vinyl that off gasses really strongly. My smoothies tasted like chemicals. The things I tried to get the smell to go away: I hand washed it; let it air out; put in through the dishwasher. None of it worked”.
In her review of the Oster Performance Pro, Katie Garrett complains that it is huge and too big to fit under any counter or cabinet. It also doesn’t crush ice well – it leaves clumps and doesn’t make nut butter or ice cream she says.
Shelia Wade says in her Oster Performance Pro review-“The blade spins at high speed while the stuff sits at the top, motionless. The base is huge and loud. I tried to make hazelnut butter in it and the nut pieces all flew to the sides of the blender and stuck there, and the blade was just spinning like a fan”, she adds.
Another user, Carmen Robbins, says in her review of the Oster Performance Pro-“The pitcher does not lock into place, which becomes a problem when using the tamper. I bought the blender to make fruit smoothies.
My smoothies consist of frozen berries, mango chunks, bananas and water. The Versa struggled even when I used the tamper”.
Della Ross complains in her review of the Oster Performance Pro– “It is not considered dishwasher safe by the manufacturer and the blade cannot be removed…at least not very easily”. She further adds that
– The rubber seal on the lid comes off easily.
– It can be a bit tricky to get the pitcher to sit on the base properly.
– The entire unit is very large. The base alone is heavy and stands fairly high.
– The manufacturer recommends wrapping the cord underneath the base and around the motor. This is just not practical when you use the blender daily.
