This Kenmore Elite 1.3 horse power blender with single serve cup is great. I recently got this a few months ago and wanted something that came with it's own single serve cup. I love the addition with the cup because I can make a perfect serving size and dont have any dishes to clean up afterwards. It's very quick, efficient and easy to clean and use. The power of the single serve is very good compared to to blender container. It blends up my smoothies very well in the single serve and the blender container. It is also versatile because you can make many different things with both of them. I love the design because it easily fits under my counter top and has been very durable for me thus far. It is also easy to clean and I love that it only takes minutes to clean and make a smoothie. I would say this is an intermediate blender and you could always upgrade but this is great for everything and lasts for a long time.
