Hello, A blender bought at Leclerc in October. A month later, failure of plastic gear training knives. Back Leclerc service that refers to Lagrange: Product refunded. In November new purchase at Amazon. In December of the same failure even plastic gear. Amazon repays me. The product is very effective, but when he walks. Could it be a manufacturing defect or design? Damage to Lagrange (French Buy ;-)) that manufacture its products in China me it seems. Unless I am mistaken. A denial would satisfy me. Sincerely.
