This blender is a great deal! This is a basic blender but has enough power for whatever you plan to make. It has four low settings (puree, chop, whip, and mix) and five high settings (grate, blend, grind, liquefy and ice crush). The six cup BPA free plastic jar is large enough to make several servings of smoothies or slushies at one time. Also, the stainless steel blade is sharp enough to crush ice. My family has used this blender for over five years and it still is as good as new! No need to spend $80-$100 on a mixer.
Do not waste your money on this item! Fist of all it is LOUD and frozen fruit already in small pieces doesn't blend well. I bought this a few months ago and have only used it a handful of times because I don't have much spare time! I tried to make a smoothie this morning and the sealing ring ended up in piece inside my smoothie. I just threw the entire hunk of junk into the trash!
The sound is not too loud perfect!!!! Its not heavy it works amazing I’m surprised
