Comment:
I bought this Blender because of great ratings and price. I was VERY disappointed!!! I made a smoothie and it was not at all smooth like I was used to with my other blender. The ice didn't crush all the way and the almonds were still evident in the texture.. A smoothie shouldn't have TEXTURE. I even ran it extra long to make sure I wasn't just hurrying. I dislike this and will return it to the store.

It is a great blended except for the fact that the top will not come off it anymore rendering it useless. I researched this problem online and found that it is not uncommon.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I've had mine about 7 years, and it is HANDS DOWN the best blender ever. It has been a sturdy workhorse, and SO EASY TO CLEAN! (If you put it in the dishwasher quite a lot, in about five years, you'll start to see some micro-cracks.) <br /><br />Smoothie? Puree? Chop? YES! and quickly, too! You have to be careful to only pulse when chopping ice or you'll get snow before you know it. I've even used it to break up whole wheat grains.<br /><br />This morning, I used it to puree ham & bean soup. It pulverized those big chunks of country ham in no time. I was actually looking up reviews for a new stick blender so I can puree in the pot next time, but I had to review this faithful friend and super-sharp sidekick.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
