Rated 1 out of 5 by FishingLady It was OK...three times used
My husband bought me this blender thinking I would use it to understand how best to use a blender and try some new recipes. After using it 3 times, the seal broke and it leaked all over. I visited my local JCP to try and buy a new seal...no luck. I've not been able to find a website or phone number to get parts. This blender would be OK if the seal lasted or you could get replacement seals.

this is difficult to use - you have to fill it and then turn it over to blend

Rated 2 out of 5 by ButterflyLover Not as good as I thought it would be
I bought this hoping I could make smoothies, however the blades aren't strong enough to chop up the fruit. I can't imagine how it will be able to chop ice...] I also did not get a $10.00 rebate with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Palmiter Awful product!
After removing from box, nuts and bolts fell out of base BEFORE assembly. Poorly constructed. Looks and feels more like a toy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AshRaleigh Leaks and does not blend
I have tried this blender several different ways. First, it leaks every time. I have adjusted it and altered the amounts and types of things I have put in there but it still leaks. Then, it does not blend. I've tried thawing frozen fruits, fresh fruits, ice/no ice, more liquid/less liquid. It always gets stuck and the blades are just not strong enough. I guess the only thing this may be useful for is if you wanted to mix up some liquids. My spoon mixes better than this. Invest in a better product! I bought this as a replacement to my Magic Bullet and it simply does not compare. I cannot say if all the Cooks brand blenders are bad, but I will not try to cheap out ever again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by M123456 Horrible for smoothies!
I tried to make a smoothie in this blender with half a banana, spinach, orange juice, and frozen fruit. It was unable to blend ANY of the frozen fruit and barely chopped up the spinach as well. Also it only blends the bottom inch of what you put in it because the blades don't move any of it around. Maybe it's good fro mixing protein shakes or blending non-frozen smoothies?

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2manydogs My Daughter LOVES this for her Smoothies.
Perfect for making smoothies, small and compact. Lots of power for a small appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NoNickName2014 LOVE THIS!
I got this at my bridal shower and absolutely LOVE IT. I disagree with the other review as this thing chops away like nothing I have ever seen from such a small blender. All of my fruit was frozen and even with adding ice, it made the smoothie instantly, no chunks! I make smoothies every morning now and highly recommend this for quick and on the go smoothie lovers!
