I'm so disappointed when I received this item, look!! the food processor screw.
Good blender, but watch the lid ...
This is a replacement blender for an old one. On the plus side, it has a heavy glass jar (not thin plastic!), and definitely seems to have enough power. It also has a "wave" design feature, which is a raised portion of the jar's interior, that gravity-feeds the contents down into the blades, which reduces, if not eliminates, stopping the blender to scrape down the sides. The one negative is, the lid is constructed from smooth plastic and is press-fit into the jar -- not screwed or snapped in. Because it's so slick, it tends to work its way out of the jar as the blender is running. Putting a small weight, such as a can of soup, on top of the lid helps to keep it in place, but if you need to add ingredients through the lid, this method is rather inconvenient. One other cosmetic issue: The "stainless steel" on the sides of the blender are plastic plates. I haven't yet needed to use the extra food processor jar, but with only a 3-cup capacity, I'll probably end up just chopping the ingredients by hand. However, because of the well-made glass jar and the amount of power, I would still recommend this blender.
Great powerful blender & food chopper
I compared this product with many other blenders and many other web-sites and ended up with Wal-mart site because the price is cheaper than the buy.com (Rakuten or whatever that weird new name). It's $ 4-7 cheaper with free shipping here (if you buy $49 or more) Anyway you can't beat this price !!! It came with glass blender and a food chopper (plastic) but the motor is 700 watts !!! Majority of the blenders are only 230 - 350 watts so with this blender, I'm sure it will last and I can keep on chopping the ice for my smoothies !!!!
Great blender and food processor
This blender is great it has the needed power to crush ice and make smoothies as well as the power to be a good food processor. So far no complaints. It also comes apart for easy cleaning and the glass part can go in the dishwasher. I have used this blender a lot almost everyday and have had no issues. It has exceeded my expectations.
Great Product for the Money
I cannot really rate durability yet. I bought it to make smoothies, new diet craze, and it works great. To clean you just put in some detergent and run it. I have not used the chopper yet but all pieces are sturdy and made well. Not flimsy at all. I love the shorter shape of the container, it seems to work better than the old blenders. I highly recommend.
