    Pros: Actually does what it is supposed to do. Handy little machine.

    Pros: Blends frozen items well. Used product for 3 years before it went out.
    Cons: Cups and covers not universal. Plastic tabs break too easily. 

    Summary: First the GOOD: Got my Magic Bullet on sale! Took a little getting used to as far as thickness of the items used, frozen or not, how much liquid. Once I got that down I was in LOVE! Make sure to leave so "headspace" so that the ingredients can blend ... read more

    Pros: It grinds soft or medium items easily if you peel/core them first.
    Cons: It won't crush dense ice, or hard items.

    Summary: Mechanically, it's a tough blender. It takes a beating and comes back fighting. The blades stay in good shape long term. The seals leave a lot to be desired. The spindle seal in the blade attachment wears out quickly, allowing liquids to leak down into ... read more

    Cons: Not a very durable product; should have included several replacement motors in original purchase
