I purchased this product for my brother and his family for Christmas. Upon receipt, his wife opened the package, read the instructions and began using it immedieately. She now depends on this Blender/ processor for preparing her fabulous dishes and each night whe quickly mixes a smothie so smooth that they have to have at least two each day.
My brother has a stomach problem and this product has helped him to digest his food easily. In just two weeks, he began to see a weight gain and his doctor is very pleased. Thanks to Overstock.com's sending me a "selection Just For Me" one day and I immediately put it on my Christmas shopping list to help my brother beat his stomach problems and help his wife cut down her chopping and pureeing time in the kitchen. We all love it!

I bought one of these last Christmas and have used it almost every day since. It has certainly held up well for me! It is definitely more of a blender, not a chopper. I use mine for my daily breakfast smoothie, various drinks and salad dressings. Pretty much anything with some liquid will work. This machine handles ice with ease! The flat blade and small cup also come in very handy for grinding coffee beans and would probably work with hard cheeses as well. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that it can be difficult to twist into the locking position in order to turn it on. I don't know if this problem is unique to my machine, but I suspect not. People with limited hand strength may not be able to use this.
I should have spent the extra dollars on the Magic Bullet. This "processor" is shabby and you have to hold in the button for it to work. It only pulses and the blade isn't very strong. Not very well put together.

This item lasted 2 weeks. I used it 2-3 times and should have put more merit in the negative reviews. I have owned a Magic Bullet. I felt I spent too much money on the bullet in comparison, but it has lasted me 4 years. It is currently in my storage unit as I am between addresses and needed something inexpensive for my daily green drinks. This couldn't even handle that. The blades didn't chop the ice well and I was not thrilled having to pulse the button. I loved the cups and lids...but it should be built to last at least 2 years for the price comparison to Magic Bullet! If you buy this GET THE WARRANTY!
Works great for my protein shakes and the nicely designed glasses make it easy to go, opposed to having to pour the mixed shake into a drinker! I also use the small one (8 ox) for making my amino acid drink that I sip on during my workout.
This is a big selling item as its value priced by Overstock and thy ship quickly and answer all questions promptly.
Lots of other places are sod out of this but Overstock quickly refills this item when it is sold out.
I gave this a AVERAGE rating because it does the job it was intended for which is basic blending...that's all. I've had it for months now and soon after I started using it, the big cup cracked. I need it for my diet shakes so I duct taped it and kept using it. Motor works fine. I since discovered other juicers and blenders actually throw in a mini blender as a bonus as part of their package so I've put aside this one.
