I bought this product for the kids to use, instead of our large blender, which they always used, then rinsed but left in the sink... flying out the door. We love fruit smoothies and juices. My son moved out of state and took it with him. My daughter had a fit, so bought another with additional container. She claimed ownership and away to college it went. Our youngest daughter also wanted one, so I purchased a third one along with extra go container. She is now in college as well. They are used regularly, and cleaned well after each use. We have loved the product and some family and friends have also purchased them.
