My husband loves to make smoothies, so i got this blender especially for him, and it’s perfect. He calls it his ‘guy blender’ because it has a powerful (and loud) motor without a lot of fussy settings like ‘chop’ or ‘puree. ‘ it does just one thing but does it really well. Also, my guy is not into details like ‘add liquids first,’ and he has little patience for things that are hard to clean. So the fact that he’s been using it for months without burning the motor out or getting anything stuck to the blades says a lot about how solidly built and easy to use this blender is.
This blender seems to be working well so far. My only complaint, and i don’t know if it is just the blender we received, is that the twist for the cap is actually backwards (so left does not twist off and right does not tighten instead it’s the other way around). This leads to a lot of confusion when trying to take it apart to clean.
This blender is kind of cheap and does not have the power i was expecting. Will not recommend this item.
I been using mine since i got it 4 yrs ago. Only issue is that over time it starts leaking in the bottom and it makes a bit of a mess.
This is an excellent product. We use it all the time and it works great.
Only problem is that i did not read that it came with plastic jar. Other than that its a great deal.
- Great Value, Great Blender
- Lives up to my expectations for a Waring.
- This is by far the best blender that I have ever owned
This warpro is great for families who make smoothies a whole lot. I like that its pretty heavy duty and we haven’t burnt it out.
I had a different waring blender for more years than i can remember. It had a plastic body and membrane buttons with an ice crushing mode. That blender made me believe that i would prefer waring for a very long time. It died only because the plastic body eventually gave up the ghost (we’re talking >10 years) and the motor mounts broke. That ended up messing with the bearings and stuff. With no hesitation i went to get another one. I was a bit skeptical about the two mode switch, but then on the other model we mostly used the pulse and didn’t really care that much about having a lot of speed choices. I see others do not care for the plastic container, but i have no issues with it, and the shape is a key part of why it works so well.
This is–in my opinion–the best inexpensive blender on the market. I eat mostly fruit and it makes the creamiest, dreamiest smoothies. For breakfast i blend bananas, oranges, water and a touch of vit c—for a dreamcicle tasting delight. I am very hard on it too–three to four uses a day–and with a squaretrade warranty added—all is covered.
To be clear, i bought this blender from target, which had the glass container version. As of this review, there isn’t an equivalent item on amazon, so i am putting my review here. The biggest performance concern is typically the motor, blades, and assembly, so i hope others don’t mind this review. After three months of use, it’s still great. I mainly make green tea smoothies using matcha, soy milk, and many half oval-shaped ice. Each piece of ice is about 2 inches long. This blender works great for that purpose. In the beginning, i had the safety (clutch?) mechanism kick in and disconnect the motor from the blade fairly often. This wasn’t inconvenient, though, since it let me know when to shake the contents to get more of the ice to sink to the bottom. After about 2 months of use (i.
I was hesitant to purchase this model based upon some previous reviews, but finally chose it after researching many different models and other companies, mainly because the blender jar is made of plastic and the power level produced by this blender model. Some reviews stated that the blender jar does not sit on the blender correctly and may be unstable, i have not found that to be the case. This is by far the best blender that i have ever owned, i’m sure that there are better blenders out there, but for the price, this blender suited my needs perfectly. I utilize my blender to make fruit smoothies and blended ice drinks.

Flimsy lid and jar difficult to keep in place in use, have to hold it at the top.
The liquid holder is plastic, not glass as i thought it was. The plastic is a harder plastic so it should hold up. Mixed up a drink which included some ice and frozen banana with no problem. Just wished the container part was glass.
This blender proves there is no need to have 14 different speeds to achieve great results. The simple switch operates the blender at one of two speeds. Primary use at this time is to create smoothies, but i am confident it would perform equally well for other purposes. I purchased this blender because it is made in the usa and also because it had good reviews. Consider this another two thumbs up.
Great blender simple to use.
This blender is mostly used for smoothies and it has no trouble powering through ice, carrots, frozen fruit, fresh apples, etc. Brand (we also have their professional waffle maker) because their products are simple and easy to use (no frills) and they work well. For instance, most blenders would have a billion settings like ‘puree’, ‘crush’, etc. And have 5 different speeds. This blender has three settings: ‘hi’, ‘lo’, and ‘off’ and that’s enough to do the job wonderfully. The only thing i would change about this blender is to make the pitcher glass vs. Plastic, but really, it’s not a big deal in the larger scheme of things.
The need:i was looking for a blender to replace a basic kitchen blender that i had owned for 15 or so years. The primary use of the blender is to make protein shakes that contain some frozen ingredients. Features that attracted me:• power• simplicity• warranty• pricelet’s blend:the blender is loud but not annoyingly so. Because it can power through frozen ingredients very quickly the motor noise is more like loud white noise (consistent) than my old blender was when it struggled with those ingredients. You have to hold the jar from the top when blending, which i don’t mind so much. Also, it means that i can feel it when the blender is done chopping through the more solid items in a given mix. My old blender needed 3 to 4 minutes for a good smoothie. In this one 30 seconds on low and another 20 on high does the trick – awesomethe instructions are really clear as to, for example, the order in which to add ingredients. Since this is designed for bars there is very detailed information about ice. You should know:the instructions say not to place the plastic jar in the dishwasher.
500-watt professional-quality bar blender with a heavy-duty metal base
This does a fantastic job of blending ice for drinks etc. My main concern is that the container base secures tightly to the motor but not the the container itsself. Twice now resulting in spills. I wouldn’t particularly encourage anyone to buy this item. I got mine free through a rewards program at work and i kinda regret using my points balance on this.
Great product this was purchased for my son loves it. I have had one for 20 years in yellow love itdoes everything great.
Heavy duty and made in the good ol usa. Hard to find anything made here anymore.
Very pretty, but lightweight. . I thought the container would be glass, but it’s plastic. Sent it back as the inside had something loose that rattled.
This is my 5th blender in 10 years. I had actually given up on blenders since they always burned up after a few frozen drinks. A friend suggested a waring i am impressed. I have made frozen drinks several times and it works great. Only 1 complaint, it works a little too good, if you use level 2 for more than a few seconds your ice will be gone.
