Summary: Great product after dealing with a clunker blender for years my wife is so happy I purchased this for the kitchen. Check the ratings, this blender comes in a close second to the Vita-Mix and for the money you can't go wrong.
A wonderful blender, that deserves it's top ratings by PBS TV cooking show!

Summary: This was a gift for my daughter. She loves it! She freezes fruit and adds a small amount of juice and in under 30 sec. she has a fantastic & healthy smoothy! When entertaining, she makes margaritas to order for her guests. She makes crepe batter, and even custards! She also chops onions and other veggies for cooking, and she purees vegetable soups...zucchini is a favorite!
Summary: I love this blender. I was looking for something that would really do the trick with smoothies. I wanted something that would crush ice effortlessly and efficiently and give a goo professional smoothie consistency without spending $500.00 on a blender. This one works great. It has a 30 second smoothie button that does an amazing job every time. It's also super easy to clean. Would definitely recommend.
Good for basic blending - not as powerful as I hoped

Summary: I heard this blender was a competitor for the Vitamix. Not at all true. It is not as powerful and doesnt blend veggies the way a Vitamix will. Of course it is much less expensive. If you only want to blend and crush ice - this is a great blender.
Not a professional model, but great for the price range

Summary: I have to run the smoothie setting at least twice to get everything as smooth as I like it, so it doesn't compare to the more expensive professional models like they claim. It does the job though, and quite well. I'm happy with it overall, especially for the price.
Summary: We started having smoothies 4-5 days a week, and I was worried about our blender burning up as the motor was struggling with frozen fruit. We have the Breville juicer and love it, so I checked out the reviews for the blender. Lots of blenders ranked up there at the top were over $400 and though they may be the best on the market, that's more than I can spend. This blender isn't inexpensive, either! It was the customer service reviews that helped make my decision.
Miraculous efficiency and ease of use at half the price of a Vitamix.

Summary: Purees heavy preparations such as hummus with impressive speed and flawless texture. I may not need my food precessor anymore except for slicing and shredding. At half the price of a Vitamix, I recommend the Breville as the best blender on the market today.
