    1. Jen , the blender is amazing it not only makes smoothies but it makes icecream, hot soups, grates chops and makes nut butter too and nut milk. Its half the price of vitamix and also you get 30 day free money back trial.It will pay for its self in 1 year because you will save so much money when you stop buying expensive smoothies, juices and icecreams. Its definitely worth the investment.
