I like this blender a lot, however the only problem I have with any blender I have ever used is that they are just too noisy (which is why I do not like to use them in the first place). Outside of the noise this BarTec Blender BTC-229 makes the ice into a very nice crushed pattern that is perfect for drinking any kind of frozen drink (such as a margarita, daiquiri, protein shake, etc). Definitely buy one of these monsters if you make frozen drinks or shakes often because this gets the job done in short order. Highly recommended.
