I have had the best time using this blender! First thing you notice is the strong, powerful base. It does not move, you can easily go hands free. I've never had a triple blade blender before, now it is a must for us!! You can easily blend fruits, vegetables for green smoothies, and it crushes ice in no time flat. The cover stays on tight, and an opening to either pour or add
more liquid as needed. I have pureed fall vegetables into super creamy soup. Also made some great salsa and in 30 seconds. It's really versatile, have used it as a food processor. This powerhouse came in very handy with this yrs Thanksgiving meal.
I also like the ease of clean up. With the higher blades as opposed to a food processor blade being on the bottom. Looking very much forward to making frozen drinks with this machine as it's ice crushing ability is top notch. Awesome, powerful blender with multiple uses!
