Hard working blender

I am now the smoothie queen! This blender works so well at blending big hard frozen strawberries into a smooth wonderful fruit smoothie. I used to make them in my old blender and it was pulse, take of the lid and stir around and pulse and take off the lid and stir around...this blender just rips right through and you end up with a wonderfully smooth end product all the time! I didn't think I would like the plastic container, but it's so light weight - yet so strong and scratch resistant.
My blender used to be an appliance that I pulled out occasionally for use - now I leave it on the counter I use it so much for everything. It's easy to clean - food doesn't get stuck in all the little nooks and crannies like before. I love this blender!

Besides looking sleek and beautiful on our counter, this machine makes the most perfect cup of coffee time after time! There is no thinking involved - except for maybe which kind of coffee you want today. You never have a pot of coffee that doesn't quite taste right or one that sits for hours and gets bitter! Every single cup comes out smooth and delicious time after time.
With this machine you can even adjust the temperature of the water and the size of the cup of coffee you want . We love our machine and can hardly drink regular brewed coffee anymore. No more half drank pots of coffee thrown out... And you can use your own coffee if you don't like using the K-cups! Tea or coffee - both taste better in this coffee maker!

This knife is an all-around "go to" knife that can handle most any job in the kitchen. It feels great in your hand! I don't know what I did without this knife!
