General Comments
I thought the Breville HB4 was a nice hand blender. The blades can be removed for cleaning, the speed of the motor is adjustable etc etc. just what I was looking for in a hand blender. Unfortunately after about 8 months use the motor stopped working. I suspect that the brushes on the motor have worn down (Motor stuttered a few times and then stopped - never to restart) but in order to confirm I would have to break the unit open. While it was running it was fine and I thought I had actually bought a quality appliance for once. Pity. I had also (of course!) lost the blasted receipt from Currys so can't even take it back to exchange.



I would suggest that Breville redesign this unit with a more durable motor and instead of glueing it, use screws to put it together so that it can be repaired.



Until they do that I cannot recommend anyone to buy this product.



PS: I'll hang on to it for the time being and search for the receipt. IF I find it, and IF they exchange it I'll let y'all know.
