What see ye? We're looking to upgrade from our older HB blender. A good, stout model that will destroy ice, liquidate fruit etc??
Thanks for the feedback,
I have a Kitchen Aid and it seems to work fine. It crushes ice, purees anything I've put in there, and I have no complaints.
One thing I like about it is that the buttons are all covered by plastic so there isn't grunge building up between the buttons. A quick swipe with a sponge and it's clean. Another plus: the glass is heavy. I personally don't like polycarbonate or other plastic containers. They eventually scratch and get cloudy.
Admittedly I don't ask much of it other than an occasional pureed soup or some margaritas, but it works fine. I've linked to a page at Amazon which handles this blender. Check out other comments, mostly positive, by some Amazon shoppers.
