Fantastic Blender, great price
on June 27, 2014
Paid $59.99 for the blender which came with a food processor attachment.
I bought this blender mostly so my wife could make (fruit smoothies. Let me describe what that means. She fills the blender to the rim with everything including spinach, cucumbers, kale, grapefruit, bananas, lemons, and always topped with a bunch of frozen like a rock strawberries. She then blends them until smooth. The darn blender handles it with ease. I'm up here writing this review minutes after watching the process, and hearing her happily exclaim "Wow it's so nice and smooth, no chunks, I love this blender!". She never had to remove the lid to stir or anything. Just filled it up ( did I mention to the rim) pulsed it a couple times, then pressed smoothie, a minute later done!
I like the blender because the blades detach from the cup for a truly thorough cleaning. My last blender from a different maker kept getting mold like material at the bottom in the crevices where the cup met the blades. Couldn't clean it no matter what.
GET THIS YOU"LL LOVE IT!
As for the other review complaints:
I see a bunch of reviews complaining about to things. They complain that;
1) the blender is not stable - Sure it is. But anyone who doesn't gently rest their hand on top of a blender chopping ice cubes into flakes really isn't that swift to begin with.
2) It has a hard time making milkshakes - Come on, did you get the milkshake attachment if it's that critical for you to make milkshakes without having to push down on the ice cream? No then do so, it's about $9. Otherwise don't be surprised that the blender doesn't instantly suck floating densely packed ice cream down to the blades and turn it into a smooth creamy taste of heaven....expect to give it a helping hand(or preferably spoon) to stir it.
