I swore I would never buy a blender again since I had just broken the third one in a two month span. It was quite the punishment to myself because I use a blender for smoothies and juices almost every day. Well, my fiancee's mother brought one over for me as a gift. I was so happy, but nervous to see how it would stand up to my daily use, and my clumbsyness.
Well, this blender does it all! It has so many functions. It can grate, blend, shred, grind, mash liquify and frappe. It can easy clean, stir, beat, puree, chop, whip and mix. It's amazing. The cap has a removeable center so you can slowly add ingredients as you blend, which is a great option if you are making a puree or a soup.
The jar part is glass, and dishwasher safe. It can hold up to 5 cups of liquid. For the clumbsy, the lid is leak-proof. The motor is an exclusive all metal drive that operates with a 450 watt motor. I also like the color being black because it matches everything. I am so happy for my new blender.
