Breville BBL620 is the most excellent smoothie blender in the world. Within a few years, this new installment has outranked the giants of blenders. This is the updated version of discontinued BBL 605XL. If we could see ten years back, BBL 605 was as famous as BBL 620 due to its technology functions and other advanced features.
This blender has given a tough competition to bigger players such as Blendtec and others.
Its efficiency, power performance and blending capabilities have given a new boost and sales are on the highest numbers. I am not saying this is equal to the Blendtec and Vitamix; you get the same level of performance in almost half of the price. The major difference between Breville BBL220 is the warranty. Breville offers one year warranty on the others hand, Blendtec backs at least five years.

In my opinion, Breville BBL620 is the finest offering to blend smooth consistency drinks only from the soft ingredients. Like, I am not saying this cannot blend the hard substances such as Pear and Apple, it will leave chunks and grains and not obliterate them like the way Blendtec and Vitamix do.
For preparing smoothies from the soft drinks, you can have this product completely, and the functions will make you fall in love with it.
You cannot trust on this in blending even green smoothies, here as well it leaves the chunks, and you have to repeat the blending process 2-3 times.
I would suggest you not to get the machine on board for preparing juices; this may not suit your needs in case of whole juices.
Design and features:
The machine has a good built. You see the exterior of BBL620 has a heavy duty die-cast metal base and looks very solid. It has an 1100 watts motor and BPA free plastic base. One can have this for dishwashing without any damage to melting or anything.
The weak side would only be its warranty card. Breville does not support more than one years to the machine and offers a limited warranty to the specific components such as motors and blades.
The blades are semi-permanently attached and assembled. You can remove them with a special wrench; the blades are stainless steel made and offer longer longevity. The blades are quite sharp, so do not pull them off without wearing proper protections.
I have mentioned it earlier; the machine is not designed to process hot ingredients. You need to cool down the liquid before liquefying those making soups, etc. The machine does not have inbuilt features of friction to process hot soups like the way we deal in Blendtec and Vitamix.
Yes, with a high to little effort, you can mash boiled water. Processing the thick texture material leads the machine overheating and can trigger the system shut off. You need to go through the user manual before blending and processing materials about which you are not sure.
I have mentioned this too earlier, the processing of hard substances such as nut butter. The blending of such ingredients requires more power than this blending watt featured by the machine. Yes, you can try it out and within a few repetitions; you will be able to get the desired job taken.
The control panel of the BBL620 designed well. You see it comes with on/off button, five-speed options and four preset programs.
The blades housed by the machine are semi-permanent and cannot be manually removed. They are very easy to operate and clean.
The Lid consists of two pads the lid and the removable cup what allows to add extra ingredients. You need to remove the air pockets remained in the machine using the pulse function; it cannot operate it.
The machine without any doubt is a noise blender, and it makes us feel more like a diesel truck is passing one.
