I bought this blender about a month ago and I have to say, it is AMAZING! It has replaced my juicer, my blender, and my food processor! I use it every single day for everything from smoothies, juicing, ice cream, and soups! It grates, chops, blends, mixes, and purees. No need to peel and core vegetables or fruits anymore because this blender liquefies the peeling, the piths and all! Juice comes out smooth and silky! And clean up is a breeze! You just put water in the pitcher, turn it on for a few seconds, and in 15 seconds it's clean and ready to go again! I can't say enough positive about this blender... LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
