BlendTec Mix and Blend II - Combination Mixer Blender - 65-601-BHM
- Product Review (submitted on December 10, 2012):
- I bought a regular Blendtec blender and then realized there was a mixer blender combo for about the same price and I was really excited. I read a lot of reviews, some of them not very good, but I decided to try it out. When I got the machine, the buttons didn't work, so Blendtec promptly sent me a new one. I was just about decided that I would keep the machine and return the blender when we made a double batch of pancakes. We heard a grinding sound and noticed that the drive shaft was grinding and spinning a bit.. not a good sign. I remembered that earlier in my use of it I had wiped up a mysterious grey dust from around the shaft and realized that it was grinding then too. The Mixer itself is really all plastic and I am not sure it is worth the price. In the end I am returning the mixer and keeping the blender. Still don't know if I made the right decision. (I REALLY wanted a mixer.) I guess I will never know. But one thing can be mentioned, I wasn't really disappointed by the blender compared to its more powerful and solo counterpart. its a really good blender.
