Excerpt: I can only give the Rival 5-Speed Blender a 7 out of 10. It does good when trying to make a milkshake or something very simple, but other than that don't try to use it for more complex things.Blending PowerIt does good with very simple soft items such as icecream, milk, yogurt and things like this.
