I don't use a blender very often so I decided to purchase this blender because it was quite affordable. It is a fairly decent blender compared to most that are in the very low price range that it falls in. It has always blended everything to the perfect consistency that I've needed to use it for. The few things that I dislike about this blender is that it is unstable while it is blending so you cannot just turn it on and walk away. Also, the product that I do blend tends to gradually get thrown and usually stuck to the sides so the product needs to be pushed back down quite a bit. Overall, as I mentioned in the beginning, it is of great quality for the price that I paid for it.
