Bandleader and inventor Fred Waring introduced the first blender in 1936, and this model pays tribute to that early version in its retro styling. A tall, old-fashioned-looking blender, it will crush ice and blend frozen fruit beautifully in a few seconds. This blender feels sturdy: the lid, with a cap that doubles as a 1-ounce measurer, fits securely, and the pitcher, made of thick, ridged glass, won't wobble. Many chefs prefer a blender rather than a food processor for soups and creamy sauces--the blades of a good blender whirl more quickly than those of a food processor and will refine a thin liquid such as cream of tomato soup to an incomparably silky texture. This blender is definitely up to that task. The fixed, self-cleaning stainless-steel blades on the base of the pitcher mean the lid is the only separate part to wash. --Maria Dolan

I've long been interested in having a really great blender. Something that will crush ice, puree soup, make smoothies for breakfast or snacks and of course blend up a nice margarita. :)
I looked at dozens of blenders, and finally chose the Waring bar model in stainless based on design, other reviews and power. The metal jar was also very important. I have always been afraid of breaking the glass on other blenders I have owned, and in fact have broken one.
This blender is just lovely. It is loud, but because it is so powerful and simply *works*, you don't have to run it very long anyway. There are no plastic buttons to get sticky and goopy. One *metal* switch and two settings are plenty.
Rather than the "turn to lock the jar in" method that most blenders use, this one drops in. You can't do it "wrong" -- it just won't go in if you have the canister turned the wrong way. The jar, which does need to be held steady with one hand, never kicks or bucks when crushing ice. You never feel like the machine is going to burn up or fly off the counter. And when you're done, you just grab the handle and lift it off, without fighting the locking mechanism -- because it doesn't have one.
The simplicity of design and use is a very big part of why I love this blender, but the fact that it's metal is a huge plus. It keeps the drinks cold, it washes out *very* easily, even when doing hot stuff that would instantly stick to the glass jars of most blenders.
My blender has never failed, never struggled, never even broken a sweat while performing any task I ask it to. It looks good, cleans easily and is easy to use. What more does anyone need in a blender? I can't think of a thing.

A name you can trust and have trusted for years. This blender does it all. weather you need 1 drink or 10 drinks. Problems crushing ice with your old blender? Not this one. I go through pounds upon pounds of ice a night and this blender doesn't even slow up.

This blender has been completely satisfying. It crushes ice consistantly and thoroughly. My smoothies alwalys come out like silk. I use the blender several times a day, and the motor hasn't burned out. The steel adds a unique touch while leaving me fearless of broken glass. And, the warrenty that comes with it is a comfort in the event I have problems with the unit. I highly recommend this product for it's quality, distinctiveness, and dependability.

I decided I needed to change my original review of this blender, as I ended up having to send it back. First the blade broke after having it a short time; then the motor began acting up. I elected not to get another like it, since it didn't hold up very well. I was terribly disappointed, especially because of the price and the fact that it was supposed to be professional grade. It could be that I just got a "lemon," but as you can imagine, I'm soured on this particular model now and don't want another one like it. Note that Waring told me they do NOT recommend using frozen fruit in this blender (and I didn't) -- so if you want to use it for smoothies (I didn't), then get a smoothie maker instead. Waring needs to do a redesign on the blades. I was surprised at how thin and tiny they are. This is supposed to be a professional bar blender, which should hold up to a lot of abuse. Well, after using it 10 times daily for two months, low and behold one of the blades broke clean off. Luckily, I happened to look in the bottom of the carafe before serving the drink to my husband, or he would have swallowed the broken blade! After paying ...for this blender, I was not amused, as you can imagine. When I called Waring, the best they could offer me was a new blade, which they did send out to me at no charge. They said they would install it for us if we wanted to send the blender in, but said that we could easily install it ourselves. Well, we got it on there, but I don't know about "easy." It's tough to get your hand down inside the carafe to reach it. I do use ice in the shakes I make, but have been very careful about adding one at a time. In fact, I even bought a special ice tray that makes really small cubes, just so it would be easier on the blender -- and the blade still broke. I really don't feel I can recommend this blender after my experience with it.

With family visiting for the holiday season and a burning desire for smoothies all round, I needed a good solid blender that would deal with ice, lots of fruit, Dacquiri-making and even soup blending without fuss. I ordered the Waring after a positive experience with one of their juicers, and seeing the good reviews here at Amazon. I wasn't disappointed - this blender is very well-made, easy to set up and use and has just the right features. Two speeds really is all you need! Ice and heavy fruit chunks are blended quickly and without overloading the powerful motor.
I am glad I ordered the glass jug version over the stainless steel - I prefer to see how the blending is going - and the capacity of the jug is slightly larger too.
I highly recommend this machine. I'm sure it will get a lot of use from me over the next few years!

This is the most powerful blender I've ever owned. Every morning I make a protein drink with frozen strawberries. I can only process this mixture a few seconds so the berries remain in small pieces and the drink isn't completely smooth.Any past blenders I've used had to work hard to incorporate the frozen berries,and I've had to blend the mixture repeatedly. Also I've been known to break glass carafes. There is no danger of this with the stainless steel container. I am extremely happy with the blender and recommend this product to anyone wanting to blend ice with their drinks, make smoothies, etc. I believe this blender will be with me for along time.
