This blender is great for making cold coffee and protein shakes, and the lid for drinking is convenient. Try anything more than that (eg strawberry, tomato) and you'll find lumps. It's locking mechanism isn't perfect either. It's a good appliance, but not a substitute for the trusty big mixer.
This product is Not good as expected, blandes are too small even not able to crush the Almonds. It takes the much time to blend banana too. There isn't any power switch to on/off and speed control. not happy with it.
