The blender arrived quickly and in good condtion. I like the fact that it has a glass jar, but am a little concerned about the base - it seems lightweight. I bought it for our beach house, so I've only gotten to use it once, and it worked fine. It will be interesting to see how well it holds up with our renters, but I won't know that until the end of next summer's rental season. Overall, though, so far, so good.
