Bought this blender last Saturday even when dear wife was not very pleased with the amount of money being spent. Convinced her, brought the blender home, opened the box and put it on the kitchen slab with great pride.
Opened the book, flip to page 109, Put some all purpose flour, poured some water, turned it on, startled the baby and SMOKED THE MOTOR.
End of the story, taking it back on the next trip.
Moral: Wife is so pleased with 'I told you so' expression on her face. I am again on prowl for a Blender better than equals!
Should've swapped for another one. You won't find a better blender. Don't know why the first thing you'd do is try taxing the motor, anyway. I'd never rev my car to 6K RPM right off the lot. But what do I know...
