I read other members reviews and bought this blender based upon their suggestions - don't do it! The blender had ample container room and the spout feature and stainless steel blades are appealing, but we used it 3 times. The first time worked fine, but the blender piece on the bottom loosened and the 2nd time the smoothie began to leak while using the blender and the third time it worsened. Long story short I am returning the blender and get the privileage of paying $8 to ship this blender back. This is my first bad experience with Overstock so I will continue to shop here, but don't buy this blender!
