Makes nice hummus
on April 2, 2015
I have only used this 3 times to date - to make hummus. It definitely gets bogged down easily when the beans are dry (before i add liquid) so i have to use short bursts and let it unclog in between. Often it will jam and i quickly pull the plug, though i am learning now how to avoid that.
In general this seems like quite a powerful blender and it is fine for hummus once i have some oil, lemon juice and water in the mix.
The stainless steel blade enclosure is nice.
I'm still cautious about this blender because the last time i used it there was quite a loud squeal every time it would start or stop. However, after a while the noise went away. At first i thought it was dying, but maybe not. I'll give it some time.
The 3 stars is because i may have a defective one - not sure yet. In general i would recommend it.
