We ordered this blender from sears.com. It looks great and blends well too. But one has to know that you have to keep the button pushed while blending. It is not like you just push the switch and it starts and then when you are done you switch off. My hands some time aches while keep the button pushed and stirring the handle to blend well! But I dont use it too much so I am fine with it and not willing to return. Overall it blends well, also you get a measuring cup, a mixing attachment and recipe book inside package which is not specified in product description and its plus! I am happy with it.
The blade is so tiny that that it could barely cut anything. I tried it with some diced garlic and after a few minutes, the garlic pieces were almost the same size. It's going into the donation bin.
