Pros: Makes shakes quickly Easy to clean if you stay on top of it Seems to have a long lifespan Small enough to pack with you for travel
Cons: Blades slightly leak in the middle and will eventually get gunked up; this causes the blade to become jammed. To avoid this problem, make sure to rinse BOTH sides of the plastic blade cap after use. I usually spin it under the water a bit.
Also, it can have accidental leaks into the machine if you don't put the cap on tight, or it cross threads slightly. I think the vibration of the machine can loosen the cap a bit. This is tricky to clean if you don't catch it right away, since liquid will leak down the sides and into the insides. There is no way to clean it at this point, unless you take the whole unit apart. You can't immerse the unit. Clean any messes quickly before it leaks down inside.
Would be nice if they had more solid storage lids instead of salt shaker lids. I never use those ones but they only give you a single solid lid.
Other Thoughts: Nice machine, I've had mine for three years, and I make protein shakes and smoothies with it.
I've used it with ice, fruit, frozen fruit and no have had no problems except just making sure you clean both sides. I didn't realize it was leaking and it jammed up good. Took a lot of soaking and soap to get it to work again. This is why I gave it only 4 stars and not 5.
Haven't made a lot of other recipes with it unfortunately. I'm not very creative.
Don't expect it to be quiet, it's decently loud.

Pros: This is a powerful unit with a few attachments. I bought it for use in soap-making and have had very good success with it. I have no problems with splashing as long as I keep it vertical. I got it in sale for a good price. The unit feels very solid.
Cons: This sometimes heats up a bit, but it doesn't seem to be a major concern.
