Summary: Awesome performance on smoothies and malts. Base is plastic with stainless like coating, don't let it fool you. Motor is the primary working part here and the motor has plenty of power to perform household needs.
Summary: excellent product. love rthis blender. great for smoothies. crushes ice very well. grerat addition to my kitchen. extra wide/large container can be filled extra full. a little tough with smaller volumes however.
Summary: this blender is awsome! i use it EVERYDAY from morning till night....great product. i am seriously considering giving this item as my template christmas gift, there are some special people in my life that i think deserve of the caliber...
Summary: Needed new blender to crush ice for smoothies/margaritas - my other blender could not handle the ice cubes. Saw this blender which was had great price and Love it - chops/crushed ice with no problem. Also like that the container is glass instead of plastic...very happy with purchase, it's getting a lot of summer use.
Summary: I have not yet received the item. It is currently in Gustine which means it should be here Monday. As soon as I get the item, I will update. I never purchased this model, I purchased the duet with the food processor included. I can't tell you anything about this model.
Summary: Not recommend. Very disappointed.
Pro- Good quality by Cuisinart. Durabilaty is good. liked glass jar and stainless steel blade.
Con- the bottom of a jar leaked at the first time I used it, yet the exchange process was fast but inconvinent beacuse I had to go to the post office with three kids to ship the old one back. Also, it leaks side of a jar when you pour any blended drink with ice. The pitcher is very heavy.
Summary: We had a cuisinart which I liked, but it died after 3 years. This one seems solid, nice looking and very powerful. Did everything we wanted with ease (smoothies / margaritas, etc). I recommend it!
