Rated 4 out of 5Â by Annie148 This blender is a great value.
This blender does a great job. The blade is sharper/faster than my old blender. I have used it to make smoothies and onion salad dressing, among other things. Chunky foods are well-blended and pureed. The pitcher is plastic, with a tight-fitting lid. The base is rather large, though, making the unit high - it barely fits under my cabinet, but does. Sometimes, when I seat the pitcher into the base, it doesn't line up easily and the motor burns out for a second until I turn it off and readjust. I wish it was a little easier to seat correctly every time. The blade unscrews easily for easy cleaning. It is a great blender for the price.

I was looking forward to my new blender as I had still been using one from the 50's. Unfortunately what I bought was a poor substitute. The jar is made out of plastic and it not very sturdy. The top that goes on it fits inside so snug I practically need a he-man to pry it out. It has marks around like it screws in but there is nothing to screw it into. I also tried to make a smoothie with frozen yogurt, ice and some espresso. It would not and could not break up the ice or the yogurt. This was a total waste of money, going to try and return it.

Great value for the price. I use to make smoothies and it blends and crushes ice for a very smooth drink.
