The Braun PureMix Power Countertop Blender is good on paper. It comes with good specifications overall. So, you\u2019d think that it can be a top contender for the best blender with glass jar throne. But, in reality, it\u2019s not really well liked among users.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Braun PureMix Power Blender\r\nThe Braun PureMix Power Blender is a countertop blender, and it does have a few good elements. When it works, it does work well enough to not be a problem\/bottleneck in the kitchen. The programmed automatic modes also work very well for beginners.\r\n\r\nPower\r\nIt is a powerful blender, and it sports a 1000 Watt countertop base. But the problem is, a lot of blenders come with even more powerful motors at much lower prices. For example, the cheaper Ninja Foodi Blender has a 1400 Watt motor inside.\r\nSpeed\r\nThere are only three speeds that you get to choose from. And thankfully, it at least has three automated programs, which consist of Smoothie, Ice Crush, and Chop. There\u2019s also a Pulse button on the control panel for controlling the pulse speeds. If you like having more options, the Instant Ace Blender would be a much better and cheaper alternative.\r\nDurability\r\nThis is the part where everything kinda falls apart for this blender. The black stainless steel blades are indeed well made in order to achieve a perfect blend, but everything surrounding it and the pitcher is not good at all. Gear engagement points are poorly designed, making the contents of the jar either leak easily, or getting the stinky odor of smoke and motor oil inside the food contents.\r\nVersatility & Attachments\r\nOther than the thermal resistant glass jug and the countertop base, this blender doesn\u2019t really come with much else inside the box. We can\u2019t really fault the Braun PureMix Power Countertop Blender in this aspect, as other related products in this range also don\u2019t come included with many different accessories (e.g., the Oster Reverse Crush Blender) either. But it does look stylish and modern overall.\r\nValue\r\nWell, at almost $150, the value proposition of the Braun PureMix Power Blender doesn\u2019t look very good at all. It is plagued by many different design flaws, and the specifications are lackluster compared to the price. Braun\u2019s customer service doesn\u2019t fare well either and is actively hated by most users in the review. Only the automated modes and the free shipping saves its face. So, we can\u2019t really recommend it to everyone in good conscience. However, it can be a good option if you find a steller deal on it.\r\nBraun PureMix Power Blender Wrap Up\r\nSo overall, the Braun PureMix Power Blender is not that great for a countertop blender. Still, if you really need automated blending modes in the countertop blender space, it is one of the only options you have at this price.
