Very powerful — does the job. . I have had blenders that i paid much more money for that did not have the power that this on has. I use this primarily for smoothies. It does frozen fruit well as long as there is enough liquid in there. Really like the performance, not too loud. Looks nice on my counter but i prefer white appliances. My only complaint is that the top is too hard to remove if you put in on all the way. It is not necessary to push the top in all the way. Nothing leaks out unless you have filled it too high.
Just what i needed, fast delivery, thanks.
Big chunks of ice but otherwise the blender is great. . Gets a little stuck on big chunks of ice but otherwise the blender is great.

Best blender ever, crushes ice great, makes great summer icy’s.
So far it has worked great to crush ice and blend drinks/smoothies. Bought this to bring to a music festival as we made frozen drinks while camping. I’ve used it about 6 times since i bought it three weeks ago. So far it has worked great to crush ice and blend drinks/smoothies.
Very loud and needs a lot of liquid in order. Very loud and needs a lot of liquid in order to blend. Tried chopping some simple cauliflower in it, wouldn’t work. Doesn’t completely blend ice. Fruit has to be cut in small pieces in order for them to blend (including bananas).
Use it every day for smoothies. A little bit loud, but it works great. I recommend this product for anyone looking for a blender.
Better than blenders that cost triple this one. I’ve tried many blenders and this one does a fantastic job for sooo much less money. I bought it for a vacation home and liked it so much i bought another one to replace ours at home. I’m actually buying this again after having it over 2 years and leaving a spoon in it by mistake which stripped the gears. So yes, the gears are plastic and you can’t blend spoons. But i blended ice every morning for 2 years without a problem, and let’s face it, buying a blender with metal gears will cost a ton more, and the “metal” gears are made of zinc which is actually a softer metal than high-end plastics. I’m not saying these gears are high-end plastic, i have no idea, but i can replace this every time i leave a spoon in it and still save money. Also, i blend my smoothies very thick. So thick they usually won’t come out of the blender without the help of a spoon or at least a lot of shaking.
This baby to the test and it has performed better than i could ever have imagined. I have really put this baby to the test and it has performed better than i could ever have imagined. Great price, shipped fast, will buy again.
You could spend a lot more on a blender but i doubt you would get any better performance. Highly satisfied and would recommend to anyone looking for a blender.
Heavy duty construction, built well.
Works pretty well but doesn’t do a good job at making smoothies. Very thick glass bottle which is nice.
Should indicate we mostly use it for making smoothies, so we do not put a lot of “hard to chop” items in it. However, it does chop ice to our satisfaction. The manufacturer must have worked on the “hard to remove lid” issue because with just a light tug we are able to remove the lid. We hope this item is around for a long time.
Pretty decent for the price. Works fine for what i need it to.
No problems, works flawlessly as advertised.
Outstanding blender for a great value.
Indeed, it really is loud but it really does the job.
Fantastic measurement for my counter. Nervous to mix do-it-yourself soup this winter season.
Excellent for smoothie drinking household.
It’s a very good blender, quite versitle, am delighted with it.
