Summary: I love this blender because it works! It is powerful, easy to use, easy to disassemble and clean. The top seals so there are no blender explosions. I leave it out on the counter, because it looks good, plus because our children use it a lot to make smoothies.
Summary: I was excited to purchase this blender because our last Cuisinart blender just died after almost 8 years of vigorous usage. Our previous model is no longer sold. This one appeared similar with a few more bells and whistles. I was, however, thoroughly disappointed with this model. I was expecting at least the same amount of power and quality. This was not the case. Our first use was to make smoothies. I used the smoothie button. It was useless.
Summary: blender works great and truly mixes ingredients; it is a little heavier than expected. I purchased this product because the glass to my first blender broke and rather than purchasing a nother unit, all I needed was a replacement.
Summary: I am very happy with this blender - it does a great job at blending smoothies. Just throw in fruit, yogurt, raw carrots - whatever you like, and they come out great every time. I have used the blender to crush ice with great results also. I would purchase this model again.
Great Features, but noisy...not noise you'd expect

Summary: I have the Cuisenart food processor that is in the same series as this blender. I needed a new blender and based on the performance of the food processor bought this blender. I like the performance of this blender and its features, but the hard plastic base and hard plastic bottom for the glass jar make terrible noise when you use this product. I find this to be a design flaw and an annoying one for the price.
Summary: The product is stylist and has many great features and options for different speeds. I purchased it for smoothies and it has a timed pulse to mix and then smooth the contents. Very impressed with the operation of this blender. Hands down best blending over any other blender I have owned.
Summary: I purchased this model a few months ago after my older Cuisinart blender died on me. This blender has been the best!! It's pricey, but reliable and durable. It's easy to clean and piece of cake to store!
Summary: Having worn out one average-quality blender, we decided to get a unit with more heft. One can easily compare a unit with a 400-watt motor to those with 500 and 600 watts. So when this Cuisinart blender came on sale with a 700-watt motor, it was a decision to hopefully have this blender for the long term. Like an automobile with a bigger engine, one feels secure that no regular use will strain the blender.
