1. Crush Ice with out being helped
2. Turn Skim milk into a thick drink, but not a shake
3. Make a perfect smoothie every time!
Some of the features I really like are:
1. The pour spout
2. The locking addition lid
3. The option to make it a regular blender or a smoothie blender
4. The stir stick - never had to use yet though!
5. POWER - and this baby is packing it!
This is not just an ordinary smoothie blender, this is a does it all blender- I have finally found a blender I am happy with! I only have one complaint - the base of the smoothie pitcher does not come off for cleaning without a screw driver! Other than taht cleanup is easy!
The other thing is right now I cannot unscrew the glass pitcher from the housing. I stil think it is a value, because the motor is big and heavy and powerful.
The Price, The Price, The Price (That's why it's 4 Stars!)
Powerful Motor, I only need to pulse on High for a few seconds then I switch it to low
The stir stick is nice, I used cubed frozen food and this just allows the blender to have everything pushed toward the blades. But make sure you keep the top of the stir stick flush to the lid when pulsing on high or you will get splatter.
The pour spout. Easy pouring--would be great for families to all help themselves to smoothies, etc. I leave a spare glass under when it is down to the dregs and open the spout up and let it slowly drain the pitcher so I don't miss a bit before I wash it out. (see my caveat under cons)
You can place the parts (except for the valve ring) in the dishwasher.
The first thing I noticed was when assembled with the glass pitcher with the lid on, it won't fit under my kitchen cabinets.Read more ›
However, I don't think it's worth the eighty dollars I just spent!!!!

I used to have one of those $20 smoothie makers from Target/Walmart and it could never chop ice very well. One drink would take 5-10 mins to make since it had to crush ice. Read morePublished on October 2, 2009 by Elizabeth
This thing is horrible.
The first time I used it, I had to constantly stir it with the provided stir stick for it to blend properly. Read more
From the moment I opened the box, this blender was useless. I used it about 5 times and the motor burned out. Cuisinart replaced the base under warranty. Read morePublished on July 5, 2009 by S. Ritland
We were disappointed in this blender and returned it. The blender is not, as the description says, "brushed chrome" - it's plastic. The "stainless" accents are plastic, as well. Read morePublished on August 17, 2008 by FourMohr
