Great blending action. Really fine consistency on smoothies and drinks. Easy pouring and maintenance with one piece jar.
When set in ice crushing mode (pulsed) the lid came loose and danced around in 360 degree orbit.
Used primarily for smoothies, and the motor is not adequate for this use. Worked good for about 2 weeks, then slowed down and died.
Very disappointing service life from an blender in this price range. Jar had a lot of vibration when blending milk shake consistency material. Might be OK for light and infrequent use, but daily smoothie was just too much for the motor.
