Summary: I love this blender. It reminds me of the one we had growing up. It is sturdy and powerful and makes great smoothies and salad dressing too. I really like the 2 speeds, low and high, rather than 20 different buttons that one never knows which to choose.
Summary: This blender is a replacement for top of the line Waring Blender that lasted less than a year. I bought this blender years ago and it lasted about 10 years. Blender is used just about every day, easy to clean and re-assemble.

Summary: We received this on time as expected. but promptly re-packaged it for return. Why? 1. Pitcher is not secure on base and wobbles badly. HUGE potential for injury hazard. 2. Blades are encase in a flimsy plastic that I can bend by hand. Can't see how that would last for any length of time. 3.
Summary: I just realized I've had this blender for 8 years! It's still running perfectly, although I might need to put a little food grade lubricant into the blade stem because I've always just put everything in the dishwasher.
Summary: I'm a big fan of waring blenders, but this one does not deserve even one star. I bought it in March 2014 and it no longer works after a few uses. This blender looks great, but is not the waring quality you'd expect.
