Good for making soup, inferior as a blender!
Out of the box I put the unit to work making soup. I made a sweet potato/sweet onion soup that the unit processed and cooked to perfection. I have since made other soups, which turned out equally great. The unit makes soup! Now the downside, as a blender it just does not function well. The base is wide and flat. The blades that whirl about leave lumps below them. You cannot make a smoothie, all you can make is a lumpie. Blends come out irregular, lots of what you want blended stays on the bottom below the blades. I quit using it as a blender. I had wanted this unit to replace my blender. It did not do that, so now I have two appliances on the counter. My advise: make your soup the way you usually do, then use a good blender in the final prep. Don't buy this thing.
