This is a great little blender. It is very powerful and can chop anything you want.It is also called a fitness blender.You can make all kinds of drinks,smoothies,low calorie drinks,whatever you prefer.I like the convience of fixing and carrying out the door with you in the same mug you prepared it in. Just flip over,remove the bottom cap and put on your lid and its ready to go. I have had mine for about 2years now.Since then,they have bright new colors. Extra mugs are available.I use my blender for fruit drinks mostly.You have a line to indicate frozen food and liquid. It could not be more simple. It is good to mix fiber drinks in it too.It is quick and easy.It chops up ice like magic.This smart and small personal blender is all you need for a small family.Everyone can get a mug of their own.The blender also comes with some recipes to get you started.Once you see how well it works,you'll find plenty of recipes out there on the web for free by doing a search like I did. It is just the tool you need especially if you are watching your weight and are health concious.It is a 5 star product.
