Goodimmersion blender, unsafe chopping attachment
on February 23, 2013
We love Breville products - we have the juicer, kettle, and now the immersion blender. The blender is fine, works as it should; HOWEVER, the chopping bowl developed a crack across the bottom, which led to a very serious problem. I thought it would be fine, as it still had a solid rim, but one day I was using the chopping bowl attachment, and the whole thing cracked, sending the blade flying across the kitchen (luckily, no kids around at the point and it flew away from me!)
Customer service was excellent - we were sent a replacement (did take a couple of weeks though). The second bowl has again developed the same crack across the bottom. I'm only ever chopping greens with this attachment....we also had a small plastic part crack and break out of the immersion blender piece, and the plastic ended up in my toddler's serving of hummus. Again, customer service had it repaired (and again, this took a few weeks). I don't know if this is a design flaw, or cheap plastic?
