Summary: I received my bender very promptly. I am currently using it and it works as expected. My only disappointment is that the plastic part of the handle is separating slightly on the grip. Though hand washing it, it is separating slightly more with each use/wash. If I wasn't using it so much, I would consider sending the glass jar back for replacement.
Cuisinart Blenders are very good, this is my third one.

Summary: It is a nice blender but when it arrived at my home the glass was all broken. The motor was the only part that was salvageable. I am using the blender as I had to go out and buy a new glass part. I love the blender. This blender works great now that I have a new glass to blend things with.
Summary: Product work great, and has a very stylish look, easy to clean, and easier to pour. No job is to big. Also I enjoy the fact that I dont have to keep making more because the jar is to small, but it not to big either just perfect
Summary: I am happy overall with my purchase of the Cuisinart refurbished CB-600 Blender. It's pretty good at mixing up drinks or milk shakes. I haven't tried crushing ice with it. I am very happy with the glass pitcher that it comes with because the prior blenders I have used had platic pitchers and they very quickly become discolored with very dark ingredients and they also take on a cloudy appearance when citrus drinks were mixed in them.
