Summary: If you used a the old, solid, and fairly quiet Cuisinarts, this unit seems cheap at first. The old CBTs had glass jars that were easy to 'read' and clean. This 1000MR has a plastic jar that make it hard to read the graduations under the 16 ounce line.
Summary: I considered returning this blender, just because if you put too much ice or frozen fruit into a smoothie, the mixture just doesn't move, you have to stop the blender and swirl with a spoon! Sort of a nuisance. I tried doing the shave ice feature, and that worked extremely well.
