This is a very versatile powerful blender. Aside from the basic blending functions which it does quite efficiently, it can chop, cream, blend, heat, grind, churn, and more. When tested for a green smoothie, the blender was able to pulverize the green leafy veggies, along with the other fruits, nuts, and ice cubes. The result was really a fine, smooth texture. It also stops by itself when set on the smoothie mode so you don’t over process your smoothie. This will be perfect for coming up with a consistent taste if used for cafes or small restaurants.
It features five pre-programmed settings to make everything easier, faster and more convenient. Set it on smoothie, frozen dessert, hot soup, puree, or cleaning. And using the frozen setting is really effective. The blender can tackle even whole frozen fruits. It includes a tamper – great for green smoothies, also for mixing nuts and making butter nut. Use the tamper to push down ingredients while the blender is running to achieve your desired texture and fineness. The machine can make a rich hazelnut spread in just seconds.
If you want more control on the speed, you can always use the manual settings. It also has a pulse option. For the hot soup, the blender cuts and blends your ingredients, and then heats it up – no need to transfer the mixture to a pan. You can have hot soup right from the blender. Cleaning is very easy. When using the self-cleaning setting, you just add water and soap and switch to clean setting.
The set includes a very useful cookbook that has exquisite recipes from gourmet chefs and a tutorial DVD hosted by Chef Michael Voltaggio. A taller pitcher is available, sold separately.
