Breville ikon Hemisphere Blender BBL550XL
- Product Review (submitted on November 21, 2011):
This blender leaks around the base into the mechanism. It started leaking after a few uses. Adjusting it a little this way and a little that way (not too tight, very tight) did not help. I've found that lubricating the threads where the bottom screws on and lubricating the gasket has helped. Vegetable oil works as the lubricant until it gives out.
It is quiet for a blender, and easy to clean with good automatic cycles.
I run a batch of water in it before every use to see if it is leaking.
It took a week to reach Breville's customer service. Instead of sending me a new seal, they sent me a brand new blender. I was impressed. Well — it immediately leaked. The leak workaround works for this one too.
