About 6 months ago i started having a lot of problems with leakage in the base. apparently the cheap plastic in the base cracked when i unscrewed it to wash it.

I don't like how the spout stick out, which I KNOW will eventually be knocked off and broken when I try to hand wash it.

This blender is amazing! I had a KitchenAid blender before which I thought was pretty good! Well was I ever wrong, this blender is powerful enough to:

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!

Second Update: Now less than a year after purchasing this d*&# blender has another problem! The seal is worthless and as I blend my smoothies the blueberry juice comes seeping out of the blender housing onto the motor auger. Update: I've now owned this blender about one month and as I feared (see below) due to the cheap plastic of the pouring spout tap it has broken ALREADY! Thankfully, I can still use the blender with the spout cap but no longer can I conveniently pour from the tap! Also the plastic housing around the blades is cheap looking and already has a stain on it from the dishwasher (yes I put it on the top rack as the manual says is fine to do)
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.

Pros:

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.

Cons:

The first thing I noticed was when assembled with the glass pitcher with the lid on, it won't fit under my kitchen cabinets.

This is kinda deceptive. It's really rated at 600W. The 1500W only apply to "pulses." Therefore, only quick bursts is it's rated at 1500W, while the usual running is still 600W like any other blender. I don't like how the spout stick out, which I KNOW will eventually be knocked off and broken when I try to hand wash it. The blade is noisy, and not smooth, but overall it's okay.

However, I don't think it's worth the eighty dollars I just spent!!!!

This smoothie maker is incredibly strong and breaks up ice in seconds. I had one of those "Back to Basics" smoothie makers before that ended up breaking and this one is much more powerful and the glass and chrome is much stronger than the plastic!

This item broke the very first time I used it. When I pushed the spigot back to release the drink the handle broke off, and you could see it was attached by a very cheap, weak piece of plastic.

I wanted a new blender that could make a good smoothie - my old one that I've had forever didnt have the power to do it. The Cuisinart looks great, delivers the power, and makes a fabulous smoothie. It powered through frozen fruit with no issues. The dispenser tap is a nice touch, but it's one more thing to clean. It's easier to just pour out the top. I'd use the dispenser if I was making margaritas for a crowd, but just for me, its easier to pour it out. The bottom unscrews for cleaning, and there is a silicone ring to clean, along with the pitcher and lid. Fairly simple to do. The glass pitcher is thick walled and sturdy. I'd highly recommend this product!

The "brushed chrome" is plastic. The spout leaks, and the motor burned out in one week. On top of that the store where I purchased it, Kitchen Kapers wouldn't let me return it saying it wasn't designed for drinks that require crushing ice. Why then do some of the recipes in the manual call for ice cubes?

I use it almost every day! It is fantastic and has saved me a fortune! Jamba Juice can get $$$$.
