    Comments about Breville Hemisphere Control Blender:

    I really do love this blender. I are used his blender at work to make things for my coworkers in myself. It has five speeds. I like that it is very easy to clean. It is made very durable materials and seems that it will last a long time maybe even a few years. The blades are very sharp although they are well-placed and I'm not afraid of ever getting cut while cleaning it. This blender is indispensable for cooking and making or preparing mini mini food and cocktails. I love the features of measurement which seems the paint will never wear off as well as the paint on the buttons. The controls are very simple and elegantly placed. this blender will make any kitchen look good while being a work course for any cook. This blender is very easily programmable you just set it and forget it it turns off out of medically for things like crushed ice and smoothies. The colors of this blender makes a complement any kitchen the muted monochromatic tones are very complementary to my kitchen and I can see it in any high-end kitchen as well.

              What A Blender!

              By 

              from Undisclosed

              Comments about Breville Hemisphere Control Blender:

              This is such a great blender!!! Anyone who likes to make smoothies or crush ice or nuts or whatever really needs to get their hands on this little machine. You won't regret that decision one bit.

              Blending Power
              This blender makes short work of whatever it is you put into it. It does a great job blending up fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts and ice. It gets the job done so quickly that you just won't believe it.

              Versatility
              This is such a versatile blender. It doesn't matter what you put in to blend. This blender will make very short work of whatever kind of food you want to blend up.

              Ease of Cleaning
              This is a very easy blender to clean. I just pop the parts off with incredible ease and rinse it off under the sink. It doesn't take more than a couple of minutes to clean it completely. No fuss, no muss.

              Ease of Use
              I had no problem figuring out how to use this blender. It is pretty self explanatory.

              Design
              Sleek design that will look good in any kitchen with any style.

              Durability
              The blades are just as sharp as they were when I first bought it. You won't have to buy replacement blades for a very long time.

              Very strong!

              By 

              from USA

              Comments about Breville Hemisphere Control Blender:

              I received this amazing blender as a sample from my work a few months ago, and am final ready to give a review on it. I use this powerful blender about once a week, this is what I call my smoothie blender. I put an assortment of frozen fruits, frozen yogurt, a liquid, and some ice and this blends it down almost just as good as one you would buy at a fast food joint. I really love how powerful this blender is, I press smoothie and can walk away, come back to a perfectly crushed up snack. I was very surprised at how easy it was to use as well, I never imagined that it would be so simple. I will definitely be recommending this to my friends and family for smoothies.

              Blending Power
              One of the most powerful blenders I've used.

              Versatility
              The reason I gave this a 7 is because it's really not unique, it works, but it had buttons and a blade like everything else.

              Ease of Cleaning
              Dishwasher safe, just set it in the sink then transfer to the dishwasher

              Ease of Use
              Press start and go!

              Design
              I like the child safety blade they thought about in the design.

              Durability
              Had lasted great for the 3 months I've had it

              Breville Hemisphere Control Blender is super strong and fast

              By 

              from USA

              Comments about Breville Hemisphere Control Blender:

              I need a blender to work quickly in the morning, blending ingredients without turning them all to unrecognizable mush. This unit has varied settings ands lets you pulse, chop, grate, etc. for different recipes and blended food items

              Blending Power
              This unit has a very powerful motor. I suggest starting at the lowest setting and then slowly going up from there. The higher settings can totally pulverize your ingredients into a paste or cream. So for salsa and the like you want to start low and pulse slowly

              Versatility
              I use the blender for almost anything. I find it easier to clean than a food processor and it can crush, liquefy, blend, chop, as well as any other more expensive and larger unit.

              Ease of Cleaning
              All blenders and choppers are a pain to clean. There is no escaping that. But as compared to other units or models that do similar things I rate it as fairly easy to maintain and to clean.

              Ease of Use
              There is nothing complicated about the unit. There will be nothing that is not self explanatory. A blender is a simple machine. This is no exception. Does the job well.

              Design
              This unit is quite attractive and does not take up a lot of space. Vertically sits under any cupboard and can rest easy in a corner. Not at all unsightly. Can leave it out on the counter without it being an eyesore.

              Durability
              I use the blender all the time and do not treat it with kid gloves. A blender needs to be durable. This one is touch. I also put in hard items like ginger root, ice (obviously) seeds like cumin and cardamom that need dashing into sauces and the like. I have never has any problem with it kicking back or stopping. Never had the dreaded smoking smell that occasionally plagued the motors of my last blender.

              Should be named the Smoothie Machine

              By 

              from USA

              Comments about Breville Hemisphere Control Blender:

              My husband bought this for me to replace an oldy but goldy blender. The main thing I use this for is to make smoothies. It does a great job of blending frozen fruit and ice into a smoothe consistency. I love the added feature where it stops and pulses to help get the liquid and fruit still at the bottom back up to the top. I never find chunks or large pieces--very even consistency every time. I love that I can set it to go and walk away, then come back to find my drink ready to go. It's very sturdy and easy to clean.

              Blending Power
              This blender seems pretty powerful. There isn't anything it hasn't worked well on.

              Versatility
              I really don't use it for much else other than smoothies, so I can't really comment on how well it does other things.

              Ease of Cleaning
              Super easy to clean.

              Ease of Use
              Self-explanatory buttons, easy to operate.

              Design
              Great design. Pieces set together well.

              Durability
              I've only had mine for a short time, but the construction seems much more durable than most other blenders I've come across in this price range.

              Great Blender

              By 

              from USA

              Comments about Breville Hemisphere Control Blender:

              I purchased this blender after much research in to blenders in general. Since purchasing it I have been extremely pleased with it. I find that it tackles most all blending jobs with ease. It is very nice to finally have a blender that will actually blend ice and frozen fruits for smoothies.

              I find that the blend is smooth and not chunky. I do wish it did not have the auto shut off feature but that is not too much of a big deal to figure out. I don't find the blender to be too loud; and it does not jump around on the countertop. The jar is very easy to clean and the front display is as well. Since the buttons aren't raised like my last blender, I don't have to get food out of crevaces. This is just great!

              What can you blend? Anything. I have give up my food processor and my immersion blender now. I don't need those items any longer. I can use my breville for any of those type jobs now.
