I was using this blender to make smoothies, not realizing that the ice and frozen fruit was doing a number on the plastic piece that secures the blade assembly to the base. I bought a Nutribullet for the smoothies and have this available for less strenuous blending in the future. It's a nice heavy blender with glass container so thought it was worth the few dollars to preserve it. This blade fits perfectly and I used the original gasket with it.
This part has a fatal design flaw, the white plastic coupling on the bottom of the blade assembly is quite prone to break, which is why you are looking at this item in the first place. Our OEM blade lasted about a year of infrequent use, the almost identical non OEM replacement (not this one from this seller) lasted about 25 uses before self destructing. Since the price of this is a significant fraction of the highly rated, low priced Ninja Master Prep blenders and others, you're better off cutting your losses and getting a better overall product. No offense or criticism of this seller, just some good advice for everyone. Sad because Braun usually makes good stuff, and the one design flaw in this single part impugns their reputation unfairly.
Even though this was supposed to replace my original blades, for some reason it made my Braun blender vibrate and walk across the countertop. Even if we kept a hand on the blender after running it with these blades in, the motor smelled "hot" when we would shut it off. They just didn't work out for us. The seller did give us a full refund, however.
