This was part of an update of my small kitchen appliance suite. Simply stated, "THIS BLENDER IS AWESOME!" Why do I say this? Because it is very powerful. It makes quick work out of whatever you put in it to blend or what I call 'pulverize' because that's what it will do if you want it to. It is very sturdy, the glass jar is so much nicer than the plastic ones I've had in the past. It's 56 ounces which is a good size for a blender jar. Oh and it is very simple to use.
Bought the blender in September, started using it in october, blender stopped working after three uses. I took it back to the store for a possible exchange instead the store manager offered me a 30percent discount if I buy another one. Sears determined to get rid of the poor product with discounts on it. Do not waste your money, its not a bargain.
I love kenmore products. The design and functionality was perfect. But the motor just slowed down and died within 9 months. I am so disappointed. I didn’t expect that to happen. I threw out my old working blender just to place kenmore blender to match with my new kitchen. I will give 1 star for the good times we still had.
