Breville Ikon Hemisphere Blender - BBL550XL
Living in Houston means that in summer blender stays on my counter 24/7. For many years I've been using Braun blender, which I loved, even though it broke down once a year and every year I purchased a new one. This time, when it broke and I couldn't find it, I spent a lot of time researching other blenders looking to get value for my money and honestly, I did not intend on spending more than $100. However, after many hours of research I found this to be the blender I was going to purchase. Honestly , I'm so glad I did. It's sleek design, functionality, and the best part...it delivers with power. Fill it with ice and it will pulverize it into snow with ease. The construction quality and design are excellent -- solid, sturdy, with a cool industrial look. It is slightly different and it takes some time to get used to different speeds, but I love it and would recommend it to my best friend.
