This blender earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because of its effectiveness and speed with which it crushed ice and blended fruit and vegetables. The Best Blender chopped 20 ice cubes into snow in only 8 seconds, unlike lesser models that required nearly one minute, and it was the only blender that completely crushed 36 oz. of ice. The Best Blender outperformed other models that cost up to 6X more, thanks to six blades (the most of any blender) positioned at the bottom, middle, and top of the pitcher that blended fruit and ice into a silky smoothie. The Best model did not incur any damage when it blended a full pitcher of ice or when the pitcher and blades were washed repeatedly in a dishwasher, contributing to a perfect score for durability. The Best model's superior features include spouts on the 72-oz. pitcher and lid that allow confident pours and it has three speeds and a pulse function. 13" H x 10" W x 8 1/2" D. (8 2/3 lbs.)
“This blender is by far the most powerful I have ever used. In less than 20 seconds it turns ice into slush.”- T, Oregon

This is inaccurate. Poor at blending ice
By Disappointed in Baltimore
I bought this blender because it advertised that it blended ice well for smoothies. If you crush the ice first, it gets caught in the corners of the square pitcher. Also it does not blend to a smooth consistency like you would want for a frozen marguerita. The drink is crunchie with ice chips. What a big disappointment!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your comment. The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute conducts rigorous, unbiased testing to determine which product is the best in a given category. While this product has received positive feedback from other customers, it clearly did not measure up to your expectations, and for this we sincerely apologize. It is recommended to use ice cubes rather than crushed ice, as the unit will crush and pulverize the cubes.

There's something that needs to be added
from Pompano Beach, FL
I absolutely love the way this blender makes smoothies. It is easy to clean. However, after it has been cleaned and the top put back on the blender, the seal is so strong that it is extremely difficult to get detached. I put oil around the rim to make it easier but it didn't work. My husband broke it when trying to pull it off, after I couldn't. Hammacher Schlemmer was incredibly easy to deal with and sent out a replacement blender, no questions asked and I returned the broken blender at no cost. When I received the 2nd blender, the same thing happened. I called H.S. who in turned called the manufacturer who advised to run the top of the blender under hot water to break the seal. I did that and it worked, but it's time consuming and a little messy with water squirting out. Removing the top of the blender is not a problem when I've made a smoothie in it, just when it is clean. I have decided to keep the lid off rather than fighting with it every day. I would prefer not to do that as it is out on my counter, but it's the lesser of 2 evils.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

An excellent blender
from Walla Walla, WA
I have only had this blender a short time, but it has a very powerful motor and stable base. I prefer glass pitchers, but the plastic one that is with this model is durable. I had wanted a blender that might be as close to a juicer as I could get and this one does chop/grind things rather fine,and is suitable for me. I did not want to invest in both a blender and juicer so this product seems a good comprimise.

Se far - great product
from Elko MN
I've had this a week now. It locks down so it won't jump off the base. My old one had to be held down. Locking cover keeps the lid from coming loose during blending and pouring. Powerful (doesn't bog down when I add frozen fruits and vegetables to my smoothies), blends quickly, less noisy than my old one. Cleans in the dishwasher. I like t!

Does the job of the expensive blender
By Blender Envy
from Ontario, Canada
Does the job of crushing ice and blending drinks and smoothies as well as much more expensive blenders costing several hundred dollars more. The pitcher is plastic but solid, so we will see how it holds up over time. The square shape of the pitcher causes thick material to hang up in the corners requiring pushing down with a spatula at times. The unit is very large and too tall to fit under upper cabinetry.
It made me a believer..
from Inver Grove Heights, MN
makes great fresh fruit smoothies for the kids..crushes ice like a bar blender..lots of safety features, won't run unless everything is OK. great for frozen drinks and slushies...love it...thanks
from Citrus Heights, CA
We have had the most expensive blender, loved it, but our daughter has so many more uses for a good blender that we gave it to her, so I was anxious to compare.This blender is easy to put together and use, is much more quiet than the high priced one, and works flawlessly. What we blended came out perfectly - easily comparable with the one we gave to our daughter.We're very happy with our purchase!
Powerful and efficient
By KT in NC
from Wilmington, NC
This was a birthday gift to my partner who LOVES it and thus the remarks come from her. She even has a book of various smoothie drinks and is excited about learning to use the other functions of the machine.For such rapid crushing of ice cubes, it is 'rather' quiet.
I operate a small restaurant and we use this blender to make frozen drinks and for pureed sauces. The triple blades this blender uses to process foods is fantastic! Much better than the standard bar blender.
