I really needed to upgrade my blender, and now that I have, I don't know how I lived without this!!! For the longest time I had a small one serving blender by Bella Cucina. It was good and all, but it would break after a few months, and I never had enough room for all of the ingredients I wanted to use, and I would have to blend and stir, then blend again. It was too much work! I started using this guy, and within less than 1 minute everything is blended to perfection in the large container. This one came with a single serving cup with a blender top, and I have never seen anything blend quite like that, wow! So much power in this little guy. I use it everyday and so far no complaints. Definitely recommend anyone buys this.
