Taking It Back For A Refund - Before First Use I'm not looking for a fancy blender. I just need something inexpensive that I can use two or three times a month. The Hamilton Beach White 10 Speed blender (Model # 50161N) fit both my needs and my budgetary considerations perfectly. I bought it, took it home, got it out of the box, and looked it over as I was getting ready to clean it before using it. I noticed the cutouts in the lid which allow you to pour or strain liquids without having to remove the lid. I thought, "hey, that's a neat touch". For more than 20 years I've cleaned my blenders the same way - I fill the jar about a third of the way up with warm to hot water, put a couple drops of dish soap in it, put the jar on the base, and turn it on for a few seconds. The blender essentially cleans itself. I take it off the base, shake it a couple of times, take off the lid, pour the soapy water down the drain (or into the sink to wash more dishes with), rinse the jar, dry it, and it's ready to go. NOT with the the Hamilton Beach White 10 Speed Model # 50161N. Those cutouts I thought were so neat? They allowed water to squirt out. Out between the lid and the jar, down the jar, onto the base (hello electricity), and onto the counter. No electrocution (whew) as the water ran down the sides and missed the buttons. In the two or three seconds it was running about two tablespoons squirted out. I pressed down on the lid to make sure I put it on correctly and tried again. Same result. A couple more tablespoons of liquid squirted out. I dumped the soapy water down the drain, rinsed it out, dried it off, put it back in the box, and created a Bed Bath and Beyond account specifically to offer my opinion. Now I'm going to finish up, log off, get back in the car, and return it to the store for a refund. Bye. April 5, 2013
Don't Buy I HATE this blender. I am thinking about just throwing it out. the good just sits in the middle-nothing moves-with yogurt and fruit, for instance. you can stir yourself and keep changing position of food, but it doesn't help...just splatters all over the inside. January 10, 2013
It doesn't grind well. Everytime I try to prepare a smooth, for example, there are pieces of fruit. It's also very instable; it seems like it will fall down. It's not a good product at all! October 11, 2012
Good value It definitely fits my purpose of mixing milk with various fruits couple times a week. I am satisfied with my purchase - it is easy to use and easy to clean. September 16, 2012
