I searched for quite a while to find a blender that would crush ice for smoothies. This product claims to "crush ice into snow". Well, not for me it didn't. I was left with LARGE chunks of ice everytime I tried. I tried several times with varying sized ice cubes and even the very smallest ones were not crushed. Extremely disappointing. Don't waste your money.
