I bought this blender about a year ago before a party. I wanted it to make Margaritas and honestly, it was so cheap that I didnt have any great expectations for its performance or longevity. I thought of it as basically disposable and crossed my fingers that it made it through the party without breaking or spraying margarita all over my kitchen. I was delighted to be proven wrongthe blender keeps on kicking (a year later) and works at least as well as my moms snooty blender which was four times the price. Granted, its not exactly a showpiece for the kitchen, and I usually keep it out of sight in a cabinet when its not actively blending something.

The blender effectively, though not quietly, crushes ice and doesnt leave any annoying chunks behind when making drinks or smoothies. I usually use the highest setting and the pulse feature to get things totally smooth. Occasionally, I have to take a spatula to a lingering piece of banana at the top, but overall, the crushing/blending actions are satisfactory. The glass canister is pretty heavy and generally keeps drinks cold for a little bit. I used it to chop nuts once, and it also stood up nicely to that task.
It breaks up pretty easily and runs well in the dishwasher, so clean-up is really simple. This cheap little blender turned out to be a competent workhorseIm glad I bought it!
