Can't make a smoothie for mother with stage IV lung cancer

This is my Cuisinart Sucks story:: I bought a Cuisinart 5 speed SmartPower blender from Sam's club just yesterday for $50. It is black with chrome colored plastic. It advertised a 500 watt motor and the ability to turn a blender full of ice into nice fluffy snow. I figured it could make quick work of smoothies, which I was committed to making for my very ill mother (stage IV lung cancer) each day while I am with her. Within the first few seconds of turning it the first time, the motor stripped the threading where the blade connects to the cheesy plastic drive mechanism. Completely faulty design. I cannot even believe that a company that once had a storied reputation like Cuisinart could manufacture a product with such an obvious design flaw. I'll take it back and get my money back, but I wanted to share my story.

You probabaly put the jar on incorrectly. Those parts only break like that when it is assembled wrong. Figure out how to use a blener before you blaim the product!

I show no empathy for someone who is broadcasting their mothers stage IV lung cancer ailment to get a point across about a defective machine, with every product made with any company their is room for failure, and thats what a warranty is for, common sense, next time dont go posting your mother business, very low and shameful for you to do....
