This product is easy to use, set up is just plugging it in and filling cups with whatever you are blending up and then putting the blade lid on top. You insert the cup into the machine and start to turn- it can pulse or chop or blend the foods. This product is powerful and has fast speeds. It takes about 90 seconds to blend fruits and veggies which is super fast! I use it for smoothies and it blends everything so quickly together. The product also comes with a smoothie recipe book so it gives you tips on how to make smoothies.
