Yes, it is considerably more expensive than your average blender, but if you want to be able to blend raw ingredients until they're silky smooth, you need to invest in a premium blender like this. If you like smoothies or soups, and enjoy experimenting with different ingredients, this blender offers nutrition, enjoyment, and delicious outcomes. The quality is impressive - I really like the 3-qt jug with the straight sides which makes it easy to scoop out thick contents. I've had a lot of fun making nutritious smoothies in the morning (almost every day), and using leftover vegetables to make tasty soups. If you are looking for a blender that can handle anything, this is the one for you.
I have used this practically daily in the month I've owned it. It is making a big difference in the intake of fresh fruits and vegetables for my household. So many of my active friends are into juicing and smoothies now and it's a great idea for anyone. I knew that I really needed to enjoy the equipment to keep up on this new habit so I decided to buy the best. Overstock had the lowest price on this and their service is great. I'm glad I splurged. I've been making sauces and dips, soups and smoothies, grinding nuts and beans. Some apples, asparagus, and cantaloupe that we're not looking too appetizing got made into various delicious dishes. Over the very long term I will find this to be economical because it saves me from having to throw away slightly expired produce This has really changed the way we eat, for the healthier!

We first saw this blender at a demo on costco and bought one. We were timid of the high price, but it has more than proven itselt. After 20 yrear and marriage and as many juicers and blenders , we wish we would have gotten on of these sooner. we use it everyday. We are buying this one for friend as a gift.
