Absolutely Amazed! My wife and I bought this thing a week ago. We have run multiple programs already, and are absolutely amazed! We have already recommended this blender to multiple people who are experiencing the same results! If you are willing to read the short instruction manual that's full of illustrations, you will not be disappointed and will have found an amazing new appliance for your kitchen. This started with us shopping for a new blender. My wife and I are using smoothies to get more nutrition into our diets. We have collected a number of personal sized blenders over the years that are clearly passed their prime. As I began searching the web for the best blenders, I was surprised and very interested when I learned that Instant Pot had a blender that was getting some good nods. We have an Instant Pot Ultra cooker that has changed our lives! We use it most days of every week for a variety of things and it has been amazing. I therefore thought that if Instant Pot could make a blender that was half as great as their cooker, it would be worth it to try. As I researched the blender, I was sold when I saw all of the smart functions it could do, including a dedicated smoothie program, as well as 'hot' programs to cook soups and a self-cleaning feature to boot! We therefore ordered online for same-day pick up and have been using the Ace-60 multiple times of every single day since with amazing results! We have so far made smoothies, two incredibly perfect creamy soups, all kinds of fresh non-dairy milks (almond milk, nut milk, rice milk), and we use the cleaning feature frequently all by just a touch of a button! Just like our Instant Pot Ultra cooker, this Ace-60 blender has opened new horizons for us with food and all the great things we can make that we never thought of before thanks to the incredible power and convenience. For the record, my wife and I like to get the most out of our purchases; we read the manuals. Before you discount this, let me just say that this manual is super short, full of illustrations, and is very easy to understand. By doing this simple step to understand the machine, you will consistently get the results you expect. One perfect example is making smoothies. The truth is that all smoothies should be stacked the same regardless of blender - start with liquids, then powders, and work your way up to the hardest solids (usually frozen fruit and ice being last - as in at the very top). By doing this, you don't start frozen hard chunks right by the blades which causes pre-mature wear to the motor and the blades dull faster. If this is not something you feel you want to remember or comply with, then maybe a $500 blender that can make your favorite iron-rich drink out of a box of nails is more for you. If, however, you are willing to just understand the machine by zipping through the manual, this is by FAR the greater value. Perfect smoothies, hot creamy soups, your own fresh non-dairy milks are now so easy and literally a button's push away after dumping in the ingredients and that's it! Once again, Instant Pot comes out with a giant winner that has earned our family's ringing endorsement! *The photo below is 48 oz of perfect Almond Milk from one cup of almonds and some water. We did the same with oats for Oat milk and are looking forward to using the Rice milk setting to make our own Horchata!
