Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ERICOFCANADA Great unit Looks great! but not fast enough!!
I love the look of the unit, it is very clean and heavy. I have used it about 6 times now mostly for my smoothies in the morning. It is a good unit but there are 2 problems with the design. 1. the location of the blades are funneled in the at the bottom. It should be a full design container all the way down to the bottom of the bowl. it would be a better design. 2. the power is great but the speed is a little slow and doesnt blend the seeds and at this cost it should. I have not suded it for margaritas, that will be the big test!!.

I put chopped ice, almond milk and some mint Oreos (don't judge me! :) in this blender to give it a whirl. I wanted to see if I could get some kind of smoothie. I ran it on every button but none of the options spun the smoothie to the point where the top even moved. I had to open the blender up and push it down manually to get some blending. After running several times, through several cycles and pushing the stuff down several times I gave up and drank my icy milk.
Here's the problem. The blender is made with a huge jar but only a very small cup sized area has the chopping/ spinning blades. Think a coffee canister sitting on top of a measuring cup. The blade is in the cup. How is it supposed to spin the whole contents of the coffee canister? It doesn't.
Ominously, the logo on the front of the jar spun clockwise and now sits about an inch to the left of where it started (should that really spin? I doubt it.) And when I pulled the jar off I found drips of the chocolaty almond milk. I don't know how it got down below the jar but it was there. This tells me that the seal isn't tight and or it is getting overly tight and unsealing. Whatever the case, this isn't a very well made blender. I don't recommend it. I'll stick with my Ninja.

I have owned several blenders in the past 10 years and this is by far the best: Powerful, easy to clean, and much quieter.
