Rated 1 out of 5Â by Nightstar17 Broke during second use...
I bought this blender after my Ninja plastic food chopper broke. I was looking for something more sturdy so the glass and steel blades appealed to me, not to mention the red color. After the first use, I was pleased at how it crushed ice, but when yogurt and fresh fruit were added, I had to keep taking the lid off to get the blender to work the upper part of the glass container, which was only half full. It just wouldn't turn and produce my smoothie as I expected from a brand like Oster. Day two...I guess the motor just quit! I emptied the container and put water in it to see if it would work...Nope. So disappointed. Can't live without my smoothies and now I know that you get what you pay for!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by calmelb blender looks good but...
It is a very nice looking blender but I find the buttons hard to work and when blending smoothies - which is the main reason I purchased it- it tends to clump frozen things around the blade and I have to stop it and move stuff around to get it to blend like it needs to . And , yes, I do put liquid in first but it still does that. Like a piece of frozen banana will get lodged at the bottom and then it just keeps blending the bottom area but won't move the other stuff at the top. I got a great price on it and will use it unless it breaks ...

I purchased this blender when my 8 year old Vitamix stopped working; I purchased this to "hold me over" until I could afford to purchase a new Vitamix. This little blender has been great, very hard to beat for the price. I love the glass container. I use it mostly for frozen smoothies so it gets a good workout. I have been using this on a regular basis for over a year now, am very happy with this blender, so much so, I purchased one for my Mom.
