Needed to replace my old blender. Did a little research and this one meets my needs for functionality and price. The fact that it has a separate ice crush button is great for fun drinks and the usual speeds work well too. It is very easy to clean ! I am very happy I bought it

I am a very frequent user of blenders and have had several different makes and models over the years. This is one of the very best values I have purchased. I make smoothies several times per week and this does a great job. Marinades and pesto are processed easily without binding up and excessive stirring.
