The 2-plus peak horsepower motor along with the stainless steel blades rotate at an impressive speed of 240 miles per hour capable of crushing cell wall of fruits and veggies to ensure they are blended enough to release the last drop of nutrient. Furthermore, the 64-ounce jar can be intimidating, but it is designed to force the ingredients towards the blade and create a vortex within the jar. Using this blender, you can juice, grind, blend, chop and puree just about anything. And, when you feel creatively impaired, make use of the recipe books bundled along that feature recipes from the best chefs in the U.S.
It is huge standing tall at a height of 20.5 inches! We could not even get it anywhere near the space between the countertop and the cabinet!
The blender comes with 10 speeds and buttons to increase speed is easy to use. Moreover, there is a toggle for high and variable speed as well. All buttons are clearly marked and easy to read.
We were impressed by the 3-inch diameter of the cutting blade. It performed as expected and consistently.
We really like the self-cleaning function. After using the blender, just pour a drop of your dishwashing liquid and some water, run the blender for 30 seconds and rinse.
