4/5 The attachments are a twist-on solution with no distinct clicked locked position. At first it bothered me, I had visions of the attachment loosining during operation, but it has not happened yet.
4/5 The on-button need a fair pressure to start the unit, it does not bother me, but those with weak hands may take that into consideration.
5/5 The chopping bowl worked a charm. Used once only though.
5/5 The blender shaft works well, really easy to clean. Though at one time the blender blade came off while mixing a smoothie with frozen berries. I am not sure whether I was sloppy attaching the blade or it pulled off itself. If it happens again I will update this review.
4/5 If you are concerned about your pots, do not blend in a pot, there is no plastic protection on the stainless steel end of the blender shaft, so there will probably be scratches.
5/5 The puree blade makes pancake batter in a blink of an eye, no lumps!
Wanting to upgrade our old Moulinex (which still works) I opted for a more powerful motor and corresponding higher price point assuming that would mean higher quality, faster blending as well as less strain on the unit. WRONG!
This unit is pretty much totally plastic and after 7 uses (I repeat 7 uses in less than 3 months - hardly high intensity usage!) the attachment head that spins the accessories is totally worn/melted - check out the attached picture.
Maybe the motor is too powerful for the plastic build quality of the parts, maybe I was unlucky with the unit, maybe there is life on Mars. What is for sure is that I am now the proud owner of the ugliest paperweight you can buy.
Benefit from cost of my experience and AVOID this product.

I've had this one for about a month, and it shows every sign of going the distance. I haven't been gentle with mine.
Its two best features are the 550 watt motor which hardly even gets warm during the heaviest lengthiest chores, and the highly convenient speed control. The changable four bladed cutter is also very nice. Even the mini food processor which I initially took to be a throw-away, has turned out to be well-designed and useful.
I recommend that when you first try it out, that you run it on the speed control at a setting of 2. In the highest setting of 5 or Turbo mode, it will tug on your hand so strongly while blending that it may be hard to resist. It is not excessively noisy. Timid people may even find it a little scary at its highest setting due to its ability to tug on its handle during heavy blending.
Due to its ability to blend thick mixtures at maximum speed, you may find that it blends familiar items so that they are smoother than you have ever experienced. It can definately make quick work of just about any blending task.
Like most other small home appliances this one is made in China. It's a little odd to me that it is marketed by a company that seems to be headquartered in Venezuela. It appears from some other comments that they stand behind their products and do have a viable US presence. 15 months is a pretty warranty for a product like this. The portion of the instructions that are in English are a lot skinnier than the ones in Spanish, but what does it take to run a blender and food processor?
Just an update to say that its getting to be a year later, and my blender is still working great. I just did a small job with the food processor acessory and it worked like a charm. It is still crushing big ice cubes and blending thick smoothies without complaints or smells.
I read the problems and took the time to try to understand what could be going wrong with breaking and anything that could result in the problems I read in the reviews posted here. The clamps are plastic but i can't see how metal would make them last longer. The most important part is you must align the arrows and just push down to attach. The top arrow that points down must be in the middle of the bottom arrows pointing towards each other. It easily pushed down and clamps together when you align the arrows. Taking it apart is just a matter of twisting them apart like you would open a jar and i think with doing both of those correctly as I listed, the clamps will never snap off.
It's a very high end product for 1/2 the price or less of comparable wands. The "food processor" attachment is twice the size of the other brands and that makes it nice. Only time that would be a problem would be if you used it specifically for smaller amounts (i.e. grinding coffee beans for 1 cup of coffee) but you could easily get the smaller chopper from Cuisinart if you absolutely need that 2-3 tablespoons of food grounded or chopped.
Switching out the blades isn't hard either. The only thing i see that would make a person think they are not easily done is you are working with very sharp blades. That isn't a problem, you just understand how it slides off and on then you can do it easily without any fear of cutting yourself. The lever is awkward to use but there doesn't seem to be an easier way I can think of and it does work and take seconds to do.
This is the best one i have seen by far for the price. I just hope it lasts as long as i think it will. I think all the negative things i read were just people doing things wrong because of the lack of specific instructions but anyone with decent intelligence can figure out how to work the wand assuming this is not the very first time operating one. If it is then, if you have any simple ability to think problems through it should be simple enough to work out. You might even be able to find their web site and use a translator to understand what you can't read (i didn't look but that is possible alternate way to understand the wand)
I was nervous about buying a brand with no reviews, however I checked out their website and they have a 15 month warranty and their other products got good reviews. All the labels on it are in spanish with a small user guide in english. I compared it to the $100 Kitchenaid and I like this one better, especially at only $40. All the components seem well made and are stainless steel.
First, there has been a change in the product that is not covered properly in the photo or instructions. On the older units the blender shaft was pressed onto the motor housing after the arrows were aligned. The unit I received has padlock symbols on the blender shaft and a dot on the motor housing. To attach the shaft, you line up the open padlock with the dot and twist to the left until the closed padlock is aligned with the dot. Reverse the procedure to remove the shaft. Simple and easy.
Second, there have been a number of complaints concerning removing the blades. Yes, this is a bit inconvenient, but is more than compensated by the versatility. The instructions are misleading and I believe they are wrong; the notch in the tool straddles the blender's shaft, not the blade sleeve, and applying pressure beneath the blades themselves (as shown in the instructions) will apply force to the blades and may damage them.
This is how I believe the blades should be removed: 1) Remove the shaft from the housing. 2) Push the end of the shaft that attaches to the housing. This will open a small space at the bottom of the shaft sleeve (the end farthest from the blades). 3) Slip the notched end of the blade removal tool into this space under the sleeve. 4) Apply a firm steady pressure to the tool and the blade will slide off. At first this is clumsy, but after a few tries it becomes straightforward.
This unit is solidly built. The quality of the motor is excellent, no burn smell or laboring like some units. The selection of blades is excellent as well as changing them. The cup they use on the end is a excellent design. One may not think this to be a factor however, after using a number of different blenders I find it is.
The placement and depth of the switch is poor. I would think if the manufacturer did not want the user to run the motor for more than 5 - 15 seconds at a time they succeeded. It is difficult to hold the unit and keep the switch pressed, you really have to concentrate on doing so as well as keeping a tight grip. You also have to use the tip of your finger to turn the unit on because the switch is quite deep in the socket. The switch is covered with a rubber, or like, membrane and now has a hole starting in it because if the forgoing mentioned design.
If you do not need the unit to run for more then a few seconds at a time this is the unit to by. If you need to keep the unit running for more than a few seconds your hand will get tired and your grip will slip. The same is true if you will need to move the unit around while holding the switch down. Excellent quality overall.
