The Braun PureMix Power Countertop Blender is good on paper. It comes with good specifications overall. So, you’d think that it can be a top contender for the best blender with glass jar throne. But, in reality, it’s not really well liked among users.
The 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.
It 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. And if you want a more powerful blender for commercial purposes, read our Blendtec Professional 800 review.
There 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’s 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.
This 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. As such, we urge you to go through our Breville Bbl620 Fresh Furious Blender review to find a better option.
Other than the thermal resistant glass jug and the countertop base, this blender doesn’t really come with much else inside the box. We can’t really fault the Braun PureMix Power Countertop Blender in this aspect, as other related products in this range also don’t come included with many different accessories (e.g., the Oster Reverse Crush Blender) either. But it does look stylish and modern overall.
Well, at almost $150, the value proposition of the Braun PureMix Power Blender doesn’t look very good at all. It is plagued by many different design flaws, and the specifications are lackluster compared to the price. Braun’s customer service doesn’t 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’t really recommend it to everyone in good conscience. However, it can be a good option if you find a steller deal on it.
So 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.
