I am currently in the process of replacing my old Breville Stainless Classic Blend Master blender which has been discontinued. I broke the bottom of the base and cannot find a replacement part. I was never all that satisfied with it in general for various reasons and am looking for an upgrade.
I've narrowed it down to the Breville BBL550XL and the KitchenAid KSB580. I've read good and bad reviews on both products, Any information or opinions on either would be appreciated before I take the the plunge and buy one. If you can suggest better blender in the general price range of these two, I'd be interested to hear your views.
