Summary: I have been using this for 6 months now to make smoothies, sauces, gravies, nut milk, ect. Extremely strong, has never bogged down. Low speed works well for most jobs. Starts slow and then ramps up. Less noisy than my smaller Oster.
Summary: Just what I was looking for -- and at a fraction of the Vitamix blenders. I've done soups, smoothies, granola bars, salsa, homemade tamale sauce, made almond butter, shredded ice (makes beautiful fluffy shaved ice). It is very loud (but not louder than my breville juicer, so we'll call that a win).
Summary: We have looked at many blenders and we were looking for something that will stand up to a couple of smoothies daily. We were looking for a lifetime purchase. So I bought one for my wife about three years ago, I was reluctant at the time about spending that much.
when it worked it was great. . . yet another paddle defect strikes.

Summary: Ive only had my blender since march 2013 and it seems I too am cursed with paddle issues. The on/off paddle turns the motor on but now refuses to turn it off. This forces me to unplug it to get it to stop. I went with waring because they USED to make quality products.
Summary: I used this at least once a day. I bought it for the sole purpose of protein smoothies and green drinks. I will give some examples of how I use it. I'll take whole ginger, a couple whole limes, zest of citrus, flax seed, protein powder, frozen strawberries, and liquid and it will turn the whole mess...

Summary: Eight years later the Waring Pro is still roaring. As noted elsewhere this is not your dainty high-fashion kitchen blender. This is a serious machine . . . that does any job. When you hit the switch everyone in the building knows you are making a blend. ((It's loud . .
Summary: I went through two of these. On my first one I thought maybe I just got a bad one because it was a refurbish one so I sent it back' I ordered a new one and it did the same thing the first did.
