Equipped with a powerful 550-watt motor and durable stainless-steel blades, this countertop blender works great for everything from whipping up creamy smoothies or pureeing lentil soup, to mixing salsa and frozen margaritas. Its soft-touch control panel offers 5-speed settings, pulse for an extra burst of power, and an ice-crush function for making frozen drinks in seconds. Furthermore, the included 48-ounce glass blending jar provides a generous, easy-grip handle, measuring marks up the side, a tight-fitting lid with a removable measuring-cup insert, and a non-drip perfect-pour spout. The blender also features a blue LED power indicator light, a sturdy die-cast base, 4-feet for stability, and dishwasher-safe parts that make cleanup a snap. Great for parties, or everyday use, the blender measures approximately 10-1/2 by 8 by 14-1/2 inches.
