Pros:A very durable, solidly built blender
Cons:None so far
The Bottom Line: Value for money blender - glass jar, strong motor, durable body.
Indians use blenders differently - they may use it more for making curries and pastes and less for smoothies. A lot of people from the Indian sub-continent also require to puree soaked rice and lentils. That is not an easy task for blender because the rice/lentils are uncooked. Just soaked in water. I have gone through a blender every few months and just learned to accept it - they cost less than $20 at Wal-Mart.

This one came as a pleasant surprise. I have had it for 14 months and it has been working just fine. I have made the "dosa" paste as well as "idli" paste out of it. I have also used it for grinding Cilantro leaves for making Indian-style chutneys. And of course, I have used it to make smoothies.
Works fine and does all the job. The glass jar is solidly built. It is a bit difficult to clean the blades since they don't open and come out but I guess that is what makes it look very durable as opposed to what I used in the past. The motor is quite powerful and of average noise decibels.
I personally have never understood why do blenders have so many buttons and speeds? Does it really affect what you are doing? I almost always seem to use various speeds just randomly. Maybe that is why my blenders don't last that long.
