Not powerful enough.

Excerpt: I received this blender as a house warming gift. Luckily, I received more than one blender at the time because this one quickly lost its power and I had to throw it away. This device is simple enough, it has clearly marked buttons depending on what pulse setting you want it on.
Mixes great but motor not intended for heavy duty!

Summary: The blender works great for juicing, crushing ice, and any type of mixing or blending you may want to do. I had to replace mine because I tried mixing a heavy batter in it. (4-stars because the motor quit with no signs it was over-loaded.
Excerpt: This was one of the more disappointing purchases I've ever made. Now, I may have just gotten a dud or I may have had my expectations set too high, but I really wouldn't recommend purchasing this blender. From day one it never worked the greatest.
Excerpt: I make smoothies just about everyday and I use this blender. For the price, under $20, it works great and does the job. I like to freeze my bananas (I cut in half then freeze) or berries for my shakes and it takes a bit longer than I'd like for the blender mix up the frozen bananas/fruit.
Excerpt: I like the blender for the blending action. It doesn't make smoothies as "smooth" as I want them, but I have another machine for that. I should have purchased a bigger one since I like to cook "ahead" and freeze soups and things for lunches, Excellent value for the money you spend on this blender, I...
Excerpt: This blender is a no go for me. While the price is reasonable, it doesn't survive long enough and doesn't do well enough for you to bother purchasing it.VersatilityIt does have options for blending down to ice crushing.
Excerpt: Okay blender that is hard to keep clean. It does not chop ice well and seems to overheat when trying to chop ice. Works well with Bacardi Mixer drinks and fruit smoothies that do not have ice. Blades will rust if not completely dryed off with a towel.
Excerpt: Decent blender but its a pain to take apart and clean. It it weren't dishwasher safe, we would never use it. The husband likes it for smoothies. I've used it for cocktails. It doesn't blend ice very well, maybe the blade isn't strong enough.
Excerpt: This blender is amazing. The power it has is excellent, it crushes ice to make the perfect margarita. The power of "smoothing" out the fruits for a smoothie, makes for a delish one. I have not experienced any problems in "chunks of ice or fruit" in my drinks. It blends all so delicately and evenly.
Excerpt: One of these blenders were give to me and my fiance as a gift from our room mate, and I was kind of skeptical , every other blender I've owned has been, well, a piece of crap. The first night I got it I made chocolate banana smoothies, they came out better than any other smoothies I've ever made.
