I am enjoying using this product to make my healthy smoothies for breakfast, when I do not feel like eating much. It does a great job and I am very happy with this product. The only weakness I have found so far, is that the plastic notches around the edge of the mixing cup weaken very quickly and after only using mine a few times, parts of these have broken off. These notches are necessary to anchor the cup onto the motor while it is mixing and grinding. So it looks like I will need to buy a couple of replacement cups in the near future, which I had not counted on so soon.
