Summary: I've always had excellent service and products from Cuisinart. This blender is the best I have ever owned. I use it daily to make smoothies for breakfast. The only thing I don't like is the alarm it makes when a programmed cycle is done. It is as LOUD and PIERCING as a smoke alarm.
Summary: So far so good. It seems to handle smoothies and ice well. The only fault is that the lid is really tight and makes it difficult to get off and on. I guess that is better than it flying off, but it is annoying. It seems well made and the container washes up well.

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.
