Brentwood Blenders Should Only Be Used Once In A While

Whenever you purchase a blender cheaper is not always better, as we soon found out. We purchased this blender from Macy's in our local shopping mall. It looked simple enough and the price was only thirty dollars. So that is why we decided to get this, but sometimes you are just spinning your wheels and you know that old saying if it is too good to be true then is probably is not a good deal.

Description
This unit stands only 14" tall and has a 48ounce shatterproof container that has a removable lid. There are markings on both sides that will tell your cups, ounces, and milliters. The total weight of this unit  is about 6 pounds .You can plug this into any household outlet within three feet of the appliance. This has 350 watts of power and has 7 different speeds. On the top container it has a shaped grip to allow your hand to fit comfortably.

Inside the bottom houses the motor which has removable blades that are made of stainless steel to help them stay sharper longer. The top container and blades are dishwasher safe, and the bottom has four rubber buttons to help keep the bottom from skidding all over the counter. You cannot submerge the bottom in water use only a damp cloth to clean the bottom off.

Experience
We have had this for several months now, but this blender has yet to impress us. There is only enough power inside of this blender to let you make slushies for your kids. If you have to chop up a bunch of hard fruit or hard nuts it takes a while to do this. Also this a lot noisier than other ones that we have heard. The only reason that we purchased this was because of the price.

Now that we know that this does not live up to our expectations, we usually leave it inside of the cabinet and let is collect dust. The only time that we bring this out is when we want the kids to have a little fun in the summertime. The plus about this unit is the fact that we are not out a lot of money. This was supposed to be able to handle anything that we could throw inside of it. Yes it will work but is lacking power that other brand names have. If you spend a little more money you will be a lot happier with the results and spend a lot less time listening to this giant noise maker.

Conclusion
This would make a good gift for someone that is just starting out in life as a housewife. A regular housewife will probably like this one, but if you have a wife like mine and she is an above average cook then she will probably want a better blender, such as the one made by Cuisinart. This type will probably cost you about sixty to one hundred dollars for a good one. So, if you do not mind and you are only going to use this once in a great while then go ahead and get this one. But, if you plan on needing one for a business or wanting to use it several times a day then by all means get the better one.

As an experienced kitchen user, I recommend that you research and buy the best for your kitchen. Decide what is the most important and purchase that, doing without less important tools until you can afford the next high quality item. I had blenders that were inadequate for the job and they ended uo unused. Once I bought or received as a gift a better quality blender, I found that I found more uses for it. Cheap for yourself, or for a gift is not the best idea.
