I make quite a lot of things with this - I was so surprised at how well it works, and how many things it does, that I leave it out on my counter. Actually it is the only appliance - except for a large convection/toaster oven that does live on the counter, everything else gets put away. I like clear counters.
I do this one everyday - put 4-oz of thick Greek yogurt - I usually use with honey kind (80 cal) - and cut up 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries (25 cal) or splurge and use a whole cup (50 cal) Put into the blender container and pump the stick up and down a few times - instant strawberry ice cream. Any frozen fruit will work. It is delicious!
In the big blender - Chop an onion - and I mean fine chop NOT liquify or tear to pieces - in the main blender and it takes just a couple of seconds. Since it has that stack of blades, it all gets chopped instead of only what is on the bottom. Also true of chopping things like squash to sneak into salmon croquets. Or adding fine chopped broccoli to a rice dish, that even a three year old can't pick out.
I wish they had a big cookbook to go with it. They do have some recipes on their website but not enough.
