Summary: I purchased this blender for one purpose only - to grate potatoes for potato pancakes. What a disappointment! I had 2 large potatoes and finally had to cut them into minute pieces, and even then it didn't work.
Summary: This blender may look pretty nice, but it's not really anything special. I was more happy with my cheaper Hamilton beach plastic and generic blender. This blender is only okay for the power level, and many times I have to stop it and stir with a spoon (for my frozen fruit smoothies).
Summary: I would give this zero stars if I could. but I can't. So it gets one star that it doesn't deserve. It smelled horrible, like burnt plastic, EVERY time I used it. Finally, it gave out on me after a few months by smoking profusely, ugh! Didn't even blend things well while it did work.
As long as you add enough liquid, it will work great.

Summary: Great deal for the price. One of a very few models available with glass jar. As long as you add sufficient amount of liquid, it will work fine. Although the intention of the new lid was to make it better (no spill pouring), it is very difficult to open.
Summary: The jar started leaking on to the engine when I turned it on. And when I tried to tighten the black plastic to the glass jar it popped when it was just getting tight so I could not tighten it.
Summary: been loving my new blender for a few months now. I love making smoothies. This is a great deal considering some of the other ones I looked at were pricey and bragged about the ability to crush ice. Well fellows we got ya. Good price and crushes ice like a breeze.
Summary: Do not buy this blender!!!! I had it for one month and used it maybe 5 times and it broke!! Shut down completely!!! I only made smoothies in it. Nothing hard or unable to blend. It is cheap and not worth the aggregation!! Spend more money on a better brand and blender!!
Summary: For the price, this is a great blender. I use for smoothies each day. Others have written that they have some ice chunks, but I put in 4-5 good size cubes with about a cup of liquid and I get a smooth shake everytime. Only thing that bothers me is the lid.
Summary: The motor burned out on mine tonight after only using it 6 times. We used it 3 times to make milkshakes and made 2 batches of frozen drinks last night and that is when you could start to smell the motor burning.
