Product did become louder after using it for sometime but it delivers nonetheless. Blades are of good quality and plastic does not scratch easily. Have been using it for more than 6 months now and well satisfied with it.
Strong Sharp blades which does not dull easily. Powerful motor. Easy to clean blades, simple design but sturdy. The blades in the chopper container is removable. Good plastic container and juice mug. Don't use to crush ice.
I really don’t know if you this is an original item, cos I happened to have the Brain hand blender too and wanted to buy another German brand as well. This is absolute junk in comparison, like it was made in some cottage industry. It’s not handy and the finish is miserable.
