I cannot say enough about this. Before buying it, I saw quite a few demonstration videos but kept an air of scepticism. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how accurately they depicted this product! I love cooking, and this Blender has shed hours off of my time in the kitchen. I've used it AT LEAST once a day since i purchased it.
It is a steep price on Amazon though, and apparently you can get it cheaper at Costco, pay for it in instalments, or wait for a Groupon deal to surface (that's how my mom got hers, it was more than half off!). I really recommend it for soups, sauces, ICE CREAM (my love), green smoothies and juices, protein shakes, veggie shredding, I even chopped almonds with it in seconds for my salad. Can't say enough, as I mentioned before. LOVE IT!
