I purchased this blender in order to make fruit smoothies for my family. It has not performed very well in that it has a difficult time blending ice (crushed) and frozen fruit. Even when I stop the blender and mix the concoction, adding juice, it doesn't have the power to blend the ingredients. It takes at least 3-5 minutes before the ingredients even start to move around. I've even tried fresh fruit and thawing frozen fruit before blending. Also, the seal isn't very tight and sometimes leaks. Cannot recommend this product.
