If it "jumps/moves around" then that is a danger issue. Because if a blender can MOVE on a counter, it could technically move to the edge of the counter, fall off, and kill a child. I have never seen a single incident where a blendtec blender jumps or moves around. Can you find a video online showing this?deal_king wrote: ↑Feb 14th, 2018 5:38 pmThere seem to be 6 different posters in that thread that mentioned an issue, not 2. That's a good portion of all the posters in the thread. Go and read it yourself. The model number seems to be exactly the same. The issue is not danger- the issue is that it jumps/moves around, which is irritating to a user who is expecting a Mercedes level blender. If you can tolerate the risk in return for paying $200 less than a different Blendtec model without this problem, then this blender is for you. There is also the possibility that they fixed the issue in later manufacturing runs.
And by the way, Costco doesn't own these units, Blendtec does. Costco.ca orders are usually dropshipped from the distributor/manufacturer and the cost of returns is always bourne by the manufacturer, not Costco. Costco.ca makes money regardless of whether the product is good or not. (But I get what you're saying- Costco members usually expect a higher quality of product/service)
The reason I say this is because everyone has a different level of "comfortable" when it comes to blenders. Yes, blenders do shake/make loud noise/vibrate, and that may lead some people to become confused, but the blender should not actually be moving on the counter.
Besides, I highly double adding 2lbs extra to a blender does anything. Imagine applying 2lbs pressure with your pinky finger to the top of the lid. And who wants that heavy of a blender anyways? Would rather have a lighter blender.
