This is our 3rd magic bullet since it first came out on TV several years ago. We wore out the first one and broke the base while moving the second one! We use it daily for coffee grinding, making gravies, scrambled eggs, salad dressings, etc. It is a required kitchen appliance in our household. I would have bought one of the newer, higher powered ones but this was an ad item at $20. Couldn't beat the price!
