I love this product and use it daily for smoothies! I will blend anything you put in it to a nice smooth consistency which is a bonus for me since I have texture issues!!! I can't live without it! It is simple and easy to operate. Blades are easy to clean. Only down side is that it is really noisy but that is not a deal breaker! The motor is cery dependable and log lasting. I love it! I also use it to make baby food!
