Pros power, looks, ease of use
Cons too tall, turns off after only 2 minutes (on purpose)
Recommended it? Yes

I first saw this Breville Ikon Hemisphere blender demonstrated on HSN.  Much like the Brother PC 420 sewing machine that I also saw on HSN first, I knew I had to have it.  I cook and bake a lot, but have a small apartment so got by for years with just a hand blender (first Hamilton Beach,...

Pros See other reviews.
Cons See other reviews.
Recommended it? Yes

I have been looking for a blender and have read all the reviews on the Breville both the 550XL and the 600XL. I found the reviews are either very very good or very very bad. Finally my wife bought the 600XL at Future Shop because it is on sale for CDN199.99. But when I open the box, I found the one... Read full review »


Avoid this blender

Pros Looks good on the counter.
Cons Poorly engineered. Should have a locking mechanism for the blade assembly.
Recommended it? No

I have a Breville Ikon and it's the worst blender I've ever owned. It's frustrating and aggravating. Whenever you have any frozen ingredients, the bottom of the blender twists loose and the liquid ingredients flow out all over the blender and the counter. Even if you try to retighten the assembly...

I beg to differ

Pros Attractive, (relatively) quiet, presumably durable
Cons Flimsy and awkward cannister gasket; poor blending performance
Recommended it? No

Our venerable KitchenAid blender gave up the ghost shortly after my wife plunged into a regimen of twice-daily smoothie making. Fired up with missionary zeal about the benefits of these frozen concoctions, she felt compelled to replace the still-smoking hulk with something more powerful. Naturally... Read full review »

Pros This blender will do what you want. It is exceptional.
Cons It is at the high end of the blender price range.
Recommended it? Yes

My oldest daughter and I like to make smoothies. However, we were never satisfied with our final product. First of all, our smoothies always had ice chunks. We also noticed that other ingredients never fully mixed up. We started closely watching the blender to see what we were doing wrong. We would... Read full review »


Awesome blender!

Pros Easy to use, blends well, looks good
Cons More expensive than some, but worth it
Recommended it? Yes

This blender is great, by far the best I've ever used. The last blender I had (a cheaper brand) was basically useless. Unless I just wanted to blend liquids, I was basically out of luck. I wanted to start making smoothies (blending ice) and my blender was definitely out of the question.

Pros Heavy Duty feel. Stainless Steel. 610 watts of power. Hemisphere Technology. Cord keeper.
Cons Lid is hard to put on.
Recommended it? Yes

I initially purchased this due to a commercial I saw. I also really liked how the blender looked. When I actually saw one in person, I was amazed on the feel of the product. It was heavy duty! The blades were very different than any of the other blenders. It does a folding motion which is really... Read full review »
