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 ...
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Anahata Works great so far
I have only used this a few times but so far it seems to be well made and does a great job even with blending up frozen fruit when we make smoothies. The feature I really love is that you can take the thing apart to wash it. I don't have a dish washer and with my old blender you couldn't remove the blades so I would end up getting stabbed trying to clean the darn thing. This one you can take the blades out and wash them and the glass part separately. Also the blue one is really lovely and brightens up our kitchen.

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 5 out of 5Â by gtboysmom Love it!
I never expected to get such a high quality blender at this price! It is solid, easy to clean, and does everything I want it for including smoothies with ice and frozen fruit! All the parts come apart easily and you can put everything in the dishwasher, except the base of course. The only piece I am hesitant to throw in the dishwasher is a rubber seal that might bounce around and get damaged, so I wash it by hand. Overall, I am more than happy with this blender!
