Breville ikon Hemisphere Blender BBL550XL
Until Breville’s revolutionary new design, the blender had remained virtually unchanged for over 70 years. In the old system, inconsistent cutting angles around the blade often created food traps and left lumps. Breville’s new Hemisphere™ blade hugs the bowl to eliminate food traps and offers smoother and lump free results. The patented Hemisphere™ bowl/blade system ensures a 100% efficient blending experience. The secret to the Hemisphere™ Blade System is the continuous movement created inside the pitcher. It allows the ikon™ 550 blender to combine the functions of a blender with a mini-food processor for the ultimate in versatility. This stainless steel base adds a stylish, elegant touch to any kitchen.

Breville ikon Hemisphere Blender BBL550XL Reviews
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.
This time, I decided to spend more on a better blender and the Breville 550XL has exceeded my expectations. It's not their most expensive blender, but it's right for my use.
Make sure to read the instruction booklet first! I learned how to avoid some of the problems reported in other reviews.
I don't use the blender daily, but when I do, it performs flawlessly. I love the rich texture it gives to margaritas.
I've had no problems with the blender leaking. Mainly because the way the blades are engineered in the stainless steel bowl of the blender, it really doesn't need to be removed for cleaning after every use. I blend some warm water with a drop of dish detergent and rinse it out.
Six months later and the Breville is still kickin'! It makes such smooth ice and friends always comment how my margaritas are like you'd get from a commercial freezer. I love it!
We ended up with a KitchenAid Chef's Blender. I have only used it three times but no leaks.
Unfortunately, function is not equal to form with this blender.
Blade assembly is separated from base with a wussy rubber gasket that collects food and is difficult to position. Blade assembly/gasket takes some skill and torque to align and twist on. Top is difficult to wedge on and remove.
These problems could be overlooked, if not for major overheating that goes on when the machine is in use. The machine has timed settings, most of them lasting no more than 60 seconds. I can't help thinking that the time limits are less for convenience and more about saving the blender from overheating.
Next time out, I'll look for a less expensive blender, that may not have the Breville's looks, but will do what blenders were made to to without the extra effort.
