Summary: I've been using this blender for years to make my morning protein smoothies. Only problem with the one I just ordered is that the O ring id allowing the drink to leak out, otherwise it works great!
Summary: We use this after a run to blend up some smoothies (ice, fruit, etc.) and it is stronger than old standard pitcher blender, and quieter (I think because there is no opening at the top when blending like traditional blenders). The convenience of the moving from blending to drinking in the same container is strong plus.
Summary: I bought this blender about 10 or more years ago and it finally went out on me. I did not even consider buying another type of personal blender. I really like the pulse function along along with the lid that allows you to drink from straight from the mug itself. This blender is very well constructed with a lot of power and I ordered another one and It came quickly.
Summary: I purchased this to make smoothies for my kids who are runners. I make my smoothies with frozen fruit and juice - that's all. During the fall - cross country season I use this blender every weekend, we don't use it as much the rest of the year, maybe once a month. The motor sometimes sounds like it's about to die and has done so for the last few years, but it keeps on working. The blender base leaks a small amount but it hasn't hurt it. I think it was a great value.
Summary: The blender stopped turning on after a few minutes of use. In the few minutes of actual functional blending, I smelled something burning, and there were strange, loud, whining noises. I have since returned this product for a full refund.
Summary: Truly I love this blender. Simple yet does a better job than the more fancy blenders. My only problem with it is I am unable to find parts. I broke the top but the motorized bottom still worked fine but I had to buy a whole new blender set.
Summary: I use this to make my daily protein shake that I like thick - made with lots of ice. I have another brand of blender at home and I bought this one for work. This blender has serious power crushing ability....absolutely love this blender and would highly recommend it. I've only had it for about a month but it has been great so far!
