We love all of our Cuisinart items and this one is no exception. It sits on the (very small) counter without taking up too much space so its easier for me to use. It chops ice and frozen fruits for our smoothies effortlessly and quickly. We can make a morning smoothie in about 5 minutes! I love this!

The blender was an awesome purchase. Well worth the money! It chops through ice like no other. I have been making banana nutmeg smoothies all week and I love them.

I need a travel blender that is plastic and gets the job done. I workout wherever I am and then I have a protein drink which I make in a blender with ice. (Myoplex) This puppy is fabulous! It crushes ice and blends my protein drink with ice, fruit and a bit of peanut butter! I did panic one time when I made the mixture and tried to put the plastic part on the base. At first, it didn't seem to fit properly. Then I tried to force it but the red light didn't go on. (Red light goes on when top is correctly on base) I tried again but turned the plastic part, holding it above the base until it easily slid into place. DO NOT force it!!! Turn it gently until it effortlessly slides into place. GREAT product!!!

Brands I'd also recommend: Ya don't need another brand because this one is wonderful and I did a lot of research before purchasing it.

I am absolutely in love with this! I purchased this for my husband, he needed an easy to use item for his protein smoothies. I got it for Father's Day and he adores its convenience and I love the Margaritas!

This little blender is great! I didn't expect it to work as well as it does since it's much smaller and less expensive than the nice big professional blenders. It crushes ice easily. I use it mainly to make smoothies every morning. Having the 16 oz cups has been wonderful and saves me so much precious morning time.

Commenting on the first review. The review just really does not make any sense. It does not operate the same way as the Magic Bullet. The cup does have to be fully seated before you can use the three buttons hi/pulse/lo. (this is a safety feature). There is only one way to seat them. It is highly unlikely that both the chopper blade and the blender blade came defective. This is a much much better design than the Bullet. The Bullet claims to crush ice, it does not. This little blender does, with ease. I was skeptical. But, it handles ice and frozen fruit better than my 600 watt Cuisinart blender. I bought a Bullet for the easier cleanup, but the big blender still did most of the work (not anymore). Cleanup is a breeze, if this guy wants my Bullet he can have it. It is under the counter. This little blender now gets all the use (and it comes with a three year warranty). Just go to homepage and read the faqs, "Why doesn't it crush ice?" I filled this almost to the top (the large 320 ounce container) with "large ice cubes" to test it when I first got it. It made snow in less than two seconds. I have not used the chopper blade, so cannot comment on its performance. if you are debating between this and a not so Magic Bullet. I would never tell a friend to buy the Bullet now that I have used both.

maybe it was me but I did not like this. Right when I got it I triend it out with water just to see what would happen. I took the small chopper put water in it to see if it ran. For the life of me I could not get the thing to line up right with the blender. When I thought I did. I turned the cup to try and lock it in place. the bottom opened up the water went every where. I tried again, same thing. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I have the Magic Bullet and i have to put it in the same way. The cup has never opened up on me. If you can get this to work. U will love it. I love my magic bullet and I will stick with that one.
