I was very reluctant to spend this much money on a blender. However, after years of dealing with the "high end" blender that I had (it wouldn't even chop ice for margaritas), I decided to take a plunge and spend the $600. My kids wanted to have a blender that would make "real" smoothies too, so they had been pushing me to buy it. In the first weekend we had this powerhouse of a machine, we made several different kinds of smoothies, homemade tomato soup, and even the homemade peanut butter that was on the DVD. To get the most out of this machine- watch the DVD that came with it (this is the first time that I have done so). This blender is on my counter, unlike the last one that was in my equipment pantry.

Scrapes the bowl much better than the beater blade that came with the mixer. Also, great that it's dishwasher safe.
