A very useful tool and convenient tool, requires concentration, and cleaning. You need to be careful because of the power and heating/cooking capability, bit it does work well. Strong motor, but you again need to understand the unit's characteristics, and cooking capability. Measurements and amounts need to be gauged carefully. Definitely not a device for little children to be around or use. Also its a more sophisticated tool for the kitchen. You can always pour the soup afterwards in a pot, and tweak it. The recipes are pretty good in the instructions, not necessarily optimal nutrition. The materials are reasonably good, plastic base, strong motor, glass container I really like. Don't overfill, it can splatter hot liquids. I would rather see a real metal or stainless base. This is an economy of scale, cost manufacturing decision. 20 years from now, with the right interface, our robots can use this. Would make a great device for hospitals making home made tube feeding formulas or home care for geriatric patients. Compared to our old Waring Blender , its somewhat Surreal but great for Geeks. Needs an iPhone or IPad interface, maybe an HDMI adaper or multimedia entertainment screen. :) I have yet to try it, but ought to be a great machine for making Mango Lassi. Definitely an evolved product from the Industrial Revolution for the sophisticated buyer. Of course I wonder what the kitchen must be like from the blender's designer ? Likely designed in the US, made in the PRC. Also a nice evolution to the hotplate, with cross cultural appeal. We bought because of the handle for its blending capability for hot liquids. This is the product for an archeologist to find 10,00 years from now, along with Google glasses and an iPhone.

Any recipe that calls for a blender is a breeze with this hand blender. No need to lug out another piece of equipment - with this hand blender you can plug it in and blend right in the bowl or pot. Great for making soups. You can also use the cup to blend dressings or whip up cream or to make the creamiest scrambled eggs ever! Best kitchen investment I've made in the past several years.

Went shopping for a new blender at local retailers, and found this one at Bed Bath and Beyond, I decided to browse for it online really quick to see if anyone else had it cheaper and I found this refurb for 50% of the retail at BB&B. recieved it SUPER quick, and I had no reservations about purchasing a refurb- I bought a Dyson refurb from overstock and you'd never know it was a refurb! The Blender delivers excellent results! I worked for smoothie place in college and got WAY spoiled with great quality blenders, and this one lives up to my expectations unlike every other blender I've had in the past 4 years

Very nice blender -- large container. Strong motor. It has a nice look to it and couldn't be easier to operate. Very happy with this purchase.

Blender has a lot of safety features. It is also easy to use, assemble and clean. It does take up some counter space but it is worth every inch.

I purchased this blender for my cousin for Christmas since hers died around Thanksgiving. I also have a Hamilton Beach blender with the wave action tech and I love it. She also loves her gift. She says it does more than her old one did. Not just mixing, but she used it to make guacamole. Loved how well it blended the avocado. The spout part annoyed her a bit, but it is useful for some things, hence the 4* instead of 5.

We wanted the ability to make smoothies every day and initially were intrigued by the VitaMix... but, not by its price. So researched others online via different reviews from common/major sites that most folks would use. In the end, we decided on this one and have not been disappointed. The 'positive' reviews for it have been spot-on, especially those that called-out to pick this one over the other Ninja that does "not" have the Single Server Cups. We use these primarily and they are perfect for a quick smoothie/blended drink. In fact, we would like to get more of them but it seems that may be a challenge. It is definitely worth getting this model w/ the single serve cups. My parents have the Vita Mix and I've had smoothies before with it, but honestly, I don't see any major difference here. This does everything I want (and more, i.e. soups/other types of blending, etc) and it is very easy to use. Clean-up is super easy, especially w/ the single-serve cups. Wash the blender blade attachment and the cup - takes a minute to do. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a high-quality blender, especially if you want to make smoothies.

Very please so far with the blender. I have purchase refurbished products before from Overstock.com and have not been disappointed. This is no exception. Delivery was prompt and the blender looks like it is brand new. I wasn't sure about a polycarbonate jar as I had always had glass before; but, it seems to be a quality item. Could not beat the price. Makes one terrific smoothie very quickly with no ice chunks. Think I will go make a smoothie.......

I was pleased to open the package with this blender. I have gone through several in my adult life, and this one is far sturdier and seems higher quality then the others i've owned. You will be surprised at how heavy this is. I have stainless appliances, so this was an obvious color choice and matches the other countertop appliances I have. I had not purchased a refurbished item before; this one came iwth the owners manual, although it was in an overstock box, and not the original packaging. I was slightly concerned about what went wrong the first time that it had to be refurbished, but in the end, it seems to operate perfectly. I am very pleased with my purchase.

This blender could grind up concrete and still be in good shape. I use it for everything I want to blend and the finished product is smooth and creamy.

I was a little worried about buying a refurbished blender, but I should not have been. The blender arrived within 4 days and was packaged exceptionally well. When I opened the inside box, I was surprised to find a blender that looked brand new. Mainly, I need a blender for frozen fruit smoothies. I have tested the blender on its ability to handle frozen raspberries (small) and frozen strawberries (large). The blender quickly and successfully clopped and blended the fruit with juice and yogurt without leaving chunks. I did have to scrape once to push back some yogurt that had worked its way up the side and was not getting incorporated. But that was all. With my previous blender (an Oster) I had to stop and scrape all the time and was still left with frozen/unblended bits in the smoothie. What I like best about this blender, though, is that the jar/carafe is one piece on the bottom so there's no cracking, loosening and leaking of separate parts and seals (which was the reason I had to throw away my last blender after only a year). This also makes the (Kitchen Aid) blender jar easier to wash by hand or in the dishwasher.

"Pro" is the correct word for this blender. I would recommend this to everyone who uses a blender for smoothies ,food processing and entertaining friends with beverages.

I was so excited to open this present from my husband for my birthday. My old one needed replaced badly and he spent a lot of time and energy looking for the best blenders because I use mine often for smoothies and canning (tomatoes, esp). I love the flat button surface that wipes clean because canning tomatoes is messy and juice/seeds used to get in between the old buttons, which was hard to clean on my oster. Loved my oster, but this kitchen aid model knocks it out of the park with excellent power, super fast blending, ease of use, ice crushing, and quick clean up. Would highly recommend!

Super blender, crusher, smasher!!! The motor is a little awkward to place on the top. I was going to give it as a gift but decided to keep it because it has many uses.

I love this blender. Mostly have made smoothies. It is not noisy like the last blender I had. It works very well for ice. Easy to use and easy to clean. Was a little disappointed that the literature said the blender pitcher and the lid could go in the dishwasher as I put the lid in the dishwasher, on the top shelf and it disformed it a small bit. Otherwise very happy with the product.
Making smoothies and milkshakes is easy with the right blender to mix everything together into a smooth consistency. A juicer, on the other hand, separates juice from fruit and vegetables by squeezing it. If you want the pure vegetable or fruit juice of a vegetable or fruit, you will probably need to buy a juicer, such as an orange juicer, rather than a kitchen blender. For thicker smoothies and drinks that still contain fruit pulp, however, blenders will work well. Read on for tips on using your food blender as a juicer for a variety of fruits.
