With sleek modern styling and a powerful 450-watt motor, this efficient countertop blender works great for whipping up fruit smoothies, mixing frozen margaritas, blending pureed soups, stirring up zesty salsas, and more. Simply add ingredients to the large 5-cup scratch-resistant glass jar, secure the lid, and make a speed selection from the user-friendly push-button control panel. Choose between low power and high power and 16 speed settings including grate, blend, shred, grind, mash, liquefy, frappe, stir, beat, puree, chop, whip, pulse, ice crush, and more. The appliance features sharp ice-crushing stainless-steel blades to ensure smooth results and an exclusive all-metal drive system where the two connecting pieces, from motor to blade, are made of metal (instead of plastic) for enhanced durability and long-lasting performance. Best of all, the glass jar can safely go in the dishwasher for effortless cleanup. From one breakfast smoothie or party drink to the next, the blender, which measures approximately 8-3/5 by 10-1/5 by 14 inches, might be best left out on the counter for quick, easy, everyday access.
