We purchased the juice master quite a while ago but didn't use it so I gave it to my son he tried to use it and the dam thing wouldn't work at all. I tried to tell my husband it was a high priced piece of junk but he didn't listen. I see that Montez is big on advertising for things that rip people off like the high priced loans . I know anything he puts his name on I won't go near. I guess it's the only work he can get because his talk show stunk. He's really stooping low now dats.

Machine motor burned up, customer service says they discontinued this model but never asked for the model number. Was put on hold for the longest time and when I called back this time he said he would transfer me to corporate and I'm still on hold waiting. Even the customer number you call asked if you want to place an order. How can they still ask if you want to place an order for a discontinued item. Nothing but a scam.

I bought this crappy blender/processor on behalf of Montel Williams.. After using the blender for about 3 months it started leaking a dark colored liquid; as well as my juice.. I contacted the company and was informed that I had to purchase another caraffe for about 80 dollars.. They would not honor there own warranty.. The spokes person informed me that the 80 dollars was a bargain!!! I will join anyone in a class action suit..

The health master is a piece of junk, and when it breaks which it will. The life time warranty is a bigger piece of sh*t. I have been waiting for my replacement blender for 5 months. They are still on back log. 5 months everytime i call it should ship within 4- 6 more weeks. Still waiting!!

Good news. I just completed my call regarding my healthmaster. After one year of making smoothies my healthmaster began to leak a dark liquid. When I called their customer service line, today, I was told that they could not replace the jar because the unit has been discontinued, however, I could buy a refurvished one for $74.00 or I could buy a new one for $149.00 which comes with a six year new replacement warranty for the entire unit. Sounds great, however, thanks to these reviews I decided not to trust them again. My thanks to all of you that wrote the reviews.
PS - Sorry, this is my review resubmitted, the first review I submitted did not have the proper title and required come spelling corrections.

First of all, everyone should be told that Jack LaLane originally endorsed this product, but only for a short time, because even he admitted it was a piece of crap, and he didn't want his name connected to it, now Montel Williams took over the endorsement, full well knowing this product was junk, he should be charged with fraud and a class action lawsuit against the company that makes them! I never bought one of these units because my mother did, and it was no good, ended up in trash, then I bought her a Vitamaster, which works great!

I am so sad....I made this purchase in good faith....Montel, you have let a lot of people down....not only are you a smooth talker....what you had to back you up is that you are famous...and have money....I have my machine sitting in the bottom of my closet...hoping some day there will be a civil law suit and I would be able to get my money back.....You have betrayed me.

I was reading the reviews and this piece of crap just wasted my time. I nearly bought it until I saw these reviews (Thank the lord!).

Ditto! Ditto! Ditto! I used to think Montel was the greatest person years ago when I watched his program on TV. Now I wonder how much of that was a farce, because that is just what I have sitting on my kitchen counter now, while I wonder what to do with it. I have all the same problems with it that others have had. Black stuff comes out the bottom. The last time I used it the paint underneath the pitcher, on the base melted and there were slivers of metal. I have the large extra powerful motor. I don't dare use it again. It makes a lot of weird noises. A machinest told me that the bearing is going out and it is going to burn up. I used it only about 15 times.
I feel so ripped off.Why does the BBB allow this product to be sold. As far as I am concerned, this is theft! This crappy piece of junk is going in storage, just in case there is a class action law suit against this manufacturer and it's inventor. Apparently, Montel is not paying attention to business!

I love Montels health master. I hate vegies and cooking so I sneak them in every day with fruit in the health master. Plus it is simple to clean. Add a little ice and water and you have a healthy smoothie. I bought mine used and if anything ever happened to it I would buy another one immediately.

My mother purchased 4 of these. One for herself and 3 more for each of her daughters. My mother replaced her leaking pitcher, my youngest sister's blew up and dosent work at all, mine leaks the ick/rust/slime and is extremely loud, and the 4th one still works well though it may have had a total of 5 or 6 uses. Also.. it is a huge PLASTIC monstrosity requiring a lot of space. If you use it on a regular basis it will leak or blow up or both. Save yourself some money, time, and drama...DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

I have had this product for a little over a year and spend over 200 dollars. I use it about every two weeks to make smoothies. That's about it and today oil spied out the bottom of the blender. I bought it to save money by making my own smoothie, I guess it would have been cheaper to just keep buying the smoothies. It works out to about 10 dollars a smoothie. This product sucks . Hope montel is enjoying all the wasted money that people have wasted on his crap product. WhAt a rip off. Don't waste your money.

The motor is powerful enough, but the pitcher being plastic can not take the side thrust of breaking up ice in the blender.
THe blade shaft at the bottom of the picture develops play and it leaks brown rusty looking bactieria water into your drink It also oozes out the bottom while making a drink.
Almost $100.00 with shipping to replace the plastic pitcher.
My last blender from target with a glass picture never leakied even after 15 years of use.

Have no problems with it for a year other then that it does not juice....Well it does if you strain out the pulp...It is so filling on one drink cannot do another one, and also a huge waste for one person.....I bought another juicer at costco an get the right amount of juice for one person. Over priced for what it does......

My healthmaster started leaking oil fom the base, too. Not sure if the oil is getting inside the pitcher,as well. The inside of the pitcher has a strong burnt oil smell.

I had this blender for a year before I got time to take it out of the box and use it. I was excited trying to get healthy thinking I paid over $400 for it with supposedly the more upgraded motor and 3 year extra warranty and I used it once and it did not do as the infomercial showed I had to use the tamper everytime I used it. The ingredients do not blend down and I don't see how this would even work to make soup or ice cream when I didn't even use it over a minute of blending and it overheated and I did as it said and unplugged the unit and reset the button and it worked two more times for me but not any better I had to put the ingredients into my Ninja to finish blending the ingredients to avoid overheating the Healthmaster and it turned off again on my third use and I did again exactly what it said to do and it won't reset now no matter what!! I can't get it to come back on or reset the button won't come down to reset and I didn't even use it but a total of 4 times. To have paid this much and see what the reviews say about the customer service scares me and I see now Montel Williams is a rip off artist!!! I am so pissed off that I got screwed and ripped off for over $400!!! I wished I had seen the reviews before purchasing and I wish I had used it right away and not waited so long to even try it out but looks like it wouldn't have mattered. Do Not buy this unit only buy a Vitamix with a better reputation than these stars that are only out to steal and lie to get money from us common folk!

I got my healthmaster elite on April 19 and after that infomercial was so excited. I made smoothies, nothing my 30.00 blender couldnt make. April 22nd it began to smoke, and I dont mean a little. I called in, I fought, I waited. A week later came a new base. Now the first one to Canada was 200.00 plus 45.00 shipping, plus 57.00 brokerage fees, no one told me that, plus another 11.00 for the second brokerage fee on the replacement. I open the box, the whole front chrome piece is mashed, very poorly packed. Back on the phone, now its a month from the first order. They tell me to prepay the unit back for a refund, I said are you joking, do you realize how mad I am and how I will tell every person in the world what a piece of junk this is.Were sorry sir, thats all we can do. I come unglued. I finally after 30mins, convince them that I will make 2 blenders out of one and they can refund my credit card half, they agreed although to date I have no money yet.I wish I would have read reviews before I bought. Junk is about all I can say. I took it apart to make one blender from 2, you would laugh your guts out if you saw the inside of this, there is nothing there. I have now ordered a blendtec, dont have it yet but cant wait to use a quality item. Montel should be sued and have to make a public TV apology for this criminal activity. You have been warned. Stay away from this garbage, I got screwed. As for the warranty, forget the 6 years, Montel wont be in business with this unit by then but hopefully he has scammed enough people to retire. Disgusting.

I used the product a few times. Didn't really have any issues with it but just didn't have time to use it enough. I decided to return the product and was surprised about having to pay the shipping and handling to return the product. But it was okay not a problem. I have been waiting for a refund for almost 15 days. Customer service is very poor. When I call all I get is that my refund is pending. Each time has been a different answer. At first it was supposed to take 5 business days. Then it was the banks fault. Now it should only be a few more days. What? I hate poor customer service and this has been the worst i've seen in a long time.

The motor has a 100 year warranty. You wont have to worry about it. The bearing in the blender pitcher wont last more than a few months. Then they will want $80 to replace it. This is a really BAD product.

I too had a leaky pitcher from the classic health master. I did just call to see if the problem was fixed. They told me they are discontinuing the classic version and that they would send me an elite (the new version) for like $30 with state tax. In my opinion since they are taking notice that this is a problem, they should have sent me the new one for free. At least I got something from them at all though. They told me there have been no issues so far with the elite model. I hope not. Anyone reading this should call in and get the newer version. I had ordered online and they were able to pull up my info quickly.

This is the worst product I have ever bought on TV especially for the high dollar amount. The pitcher started leaking rusty liquid after just a fiew uses. The company said they would send me a new one for $54.95 and that it is very uncommon, they lied. I now see this is how they continue to make more money off their customers. I do not believe Montel Williams anymore he also will put his name on any product just to make a dollar.

After numerous customer service calls the first time and a replaced unit because the motor died, the 2nd one actually had the pitcher leak within 15 uses. Junk, absolute junk and the worst part is he is still advertising this crap all the time on TV and duping these poor people that are looking for something that works. I am going to report this to the BBB and hope against hope that more people will start reading the reviews before purchasing. It should be in consumer reports as a " definitely don't buy!" Not mention the amount of space it takes up on my counter and the runaround I got from customer service

I only used Montel's Health Master 3 times and it I wouldn't even turn it on when I tried the 4th time. I still had to strain the pulp when I made juice. It was so loud. Someone asked "Why all the bad reviews?" Why not? What are we supposed to do lie and pretend something worked well when it didn't? My mistake was not checking reviews first. If anyone has to send the unit back, you need to get a RA (Return authorization #) from customer service and write that on the outside of the box.

As a business owner myself, advertising is expensive, but a BAD word is more costly than advertising! Rude customer service, my pitcher leaked only months after owning it, had to buy a new one @ $50, as that was not covered by warranty, (read the tiny print), then the motor went out. Total hrs on this unit was maybe 5, and it fell apart. Don't buy it!!!! Because if you pay the huge money for it, you won't get it back, it will break after 90 days. I wish this product & company was off the market!!!

I am disgusted that Montel Williams has disgraced himself and ruined his reputation by selling this product. What a rip off. So dishonest; is this criminal? People work hard for their money and this is sad that he is willing to steal folks money. When I opened the box and the blender was plastic, I knew it was a rip off. I expected a hefty glass container. I gave it a shot and like many other comments, I have to agree that the juicer I have now, which costs me 30 dollars is a much better piece of equipment. I just hope I don't have all the problems getting my refund that I'm seeing other people had. Shame, shame.

After buying the product and it being shipped late, we attempted to make some of the recipes. The soup tasted raw and was awful. We attempted to use it only 3 times over a couple of months and the motor burned up. Now they want to charge me to send me a replacement motor. This is the worst product I have ever seen. I have gotten better results from a dollar store blender for under $20. Save your money and your sanity!
