I've used it a few times and it works great. I've used it to (1) blend ghee into my coffee, (2) blend shredded cheddar cheese to make homemade velveeta, and (3) to blend mushrooms in broth for mushroom bisque. Also very easy to clean. I got it off amazon for about $30.
I recently bought this for my boyfriend, we love it. Making soups and even smoothies is a breeze, and easy to clean. I'm in love with it I cannot deny. It wasn't very expensive, but I got it on special as well. If you're going to make lots of smoothies and like us can't store a blender anywhere, this is a great option
