Summary: After wearing out a couple of your typical dept store blenders, I wanted one that would last with daily use. My wife and I started a diet (body for life) which involved making multiple protein shakes every day. I stayed on the diet for a number of years and we still have this blender and it still works just as well as when we bought it.
Summary: The blender you see in the picture is not the actual one that you receive. The HBB908 is the correct name but the blender pictured is the HB04-0032. The 908 is made out of plastic as opposed to the one in the picture which is stainless steal as the description states. I have owned the blender in the picture for many years and was buying another one for my other house. I was very dissapointed to open the box and find the cheap plastic blender.
Summary: I have tried so many blenders and they either don't last, or they are not powerful enough or they are too loud, but this blender is great in every regard. It is powerful, relatively quiet, durable and it looks great! I would highly recommend this blender!
Summary: I bought two of these-one for a gift and one for me. The red color is gorgeous, even though my kitchen is blue. It really chops the ice up so there isn't any chunks which is the problem I had with the last one I owned. I highly recommend it!
