Summary: Great power. I bought this for my wife because I saw that it was a 600 Watt Blender. The usual OSTER do not compare to this My only concern is that the push gel type controls tend to break down with time.
Summary: I decided to buy this blender since I have many cuisinart products. They all work really well so I expected just as much from this. Well, first time I used it. There was a smell like a burnt motor, but I got over it since it was new and needed breaking in. Second time I had my protein shake leaking out the bottom causing the blender to spin around on the base. This happened several times again.
Summary: The part that mounts to the blade is made of a plastic and does stay attached for long, we had this blender for a few months and then it broke. I went online to see if I could find a replacement part and there were none for this piece that broke. So it's 80 bucks down the drain! Who wants to mess with the warranty and mail this thing all over the place!
Summary: I don't know why people gave it such bad reviews. I love my blender. Maybe it's because the last blender I had was from circa 1993 and I'm grateful to have one that works really well. I would recommend this blender to anyone.
Summary: So far, so good. It works like a charm, and is super powerful. Only thing I'm a little concerned about is last week, the motor smelled like it was overheated on only the third use. Time will tell.
Pros: Super powerful, easy to use.
Cons: It smelled like the motor was burning a little on the third use... we shall see.
