Rated 5 out of 5 by jeanpfaz If you like smoothies/shakes, you will LOVE this! Before I say anything, if you're interested in this blender, I recommend purchasing it from Walmart ASAP! Amazon currently is offering it from an outside vendor at $74.99 with $8.22 shipping (10-25-2012).At first I was very disappointed, because after I placed my site-to-store order, I got a message from Walmart: "Unfortunately, we've had to cancel the items listed below because they were not available in your selected store... We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you are still interested in these items, they may be available for pickup at another Walmart store, or they may be available for home delivery." I opted to have it shipped, which cost an additional $4.97. Well, it was worth the wait and the extra postage!PROSThis is a powerful blender, and it has features I hadn't even noticed when I was researching it. The first thing I made in it was a smoothie for my husband and myself. There is actually a "smoothies" button, and pressing it causes the unit to alternately pulse and rest numerous times and then do a little more lengthy blend. Anyway, the smoothie turned out just perfect: http://www.keyingredient.com/recipes/8004043/smoothie-blueberry-sunrise-smoothie/ (I microwaved the egg in a 1-cup measuring cup).PRO and CON: The lid fits very snuggly (a good thing, right?). In order to get enough leverage to get it off, I have to take the bowl off the base and set it directly on the countertop, take the little center lid off, and then it's still a little challenging to get it off. Maybe it will get easier with time.CONS1. The short cord Jack mentions in the video is not a factor for me, since I place it right in front of an outlet. The cord actually measures 28 inches plus the plug.2. I actually purchased this blender to replace a kitchen aid blender that I had been using to make potato pancakes (a blender takes up less counter space and looks better than my 20-year-old Cuisinart food processor--which is more efficient for chopping vegetables), but the manual says: DO NOT place any of the following in the blender:* Dry foods, such as bread, cheese, nuts and coffee beans.* Large pieces of frozen foods* Tough foods such as raw turnips, sweet potatoes and potatoes* Bones3. As you can see in the video, it is not efficient at chopping LARGE quantities of ice. Even if he had added liquid, he still would have had to take the lid off and stir it a few times--a lesson I learned from experience.I highly recommend this video if you're interested in this blender:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnQpNIpT0-k 10/25/2012

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tinka63136 Do not buy this I bought this blender thinking that I was going to get a product that worked great. I was sadly mistaken. The blender does not come with a tamper, first so you will have to stop the blender to move the food around. Then I attempted to crush ice and that did not work. I did how ever made a smoothie and it did come out well. I believe if this blender had a tamper it would be a better product. 07/22/2012
