Very good appliance to have
I gave this gift to my mom's boyfriend, she loved it. it is glass so it does not stain or hold food smells like the plastic ones do. the plastic ones scrape and dirt gets stuck in the small creases that people end up drinking with the shakes, sauces or what ever they use the blender for, so this glass one that i chose was perfect. i just wish they offered this appliance in different colors, besides this it is awesome.
