I make shakes every morning... thick shakes, protein powders, flax seed, coconut milk, frozen fruit, etc.
For the past two years, I've been blowing out motors of cheaper $100 blenders every 5 or 6 months. I've only had this blender a couple of weeks, so not sure if I've solved that problem, but it doesn't have that 'start your morning with the fresh fragrance of over-heated electric motors', so I'm hopeful.
Clean up is amazingly simple, before I would have to scrub the blender jars after their dishwasher ritual (yes, that dishwasher is soon to be replaced). I've only had to clean this jar twice in the past 2 weeks; beyond letting the mixer do the job as advertised.
I have to use the tamp tool occasionally, perhaps once a week. Other blenders required that I scrape the jar while blending my shakes, so this is a big improvement.
Minor Complaints:
Profile is tall, probably the tallest of the blenders I've tried.
This blender does walk a bit on my counter top when making my shakes. It doesn't for other things I've used it for; less-thick other things.
LOUD -- but actually not a loud as I thought it would be after reading other reviews. It is a blender after all.
If you're on the fence, buy it.
