I think this is a great blender! It's very powerful and that was my primary concern. However, for me, there are two obvious drawbacks. One, it's difficult to thoroughly clean the blade since it isn't detachable, but not impossible. Two, it heats up very quickly - while the temperature doesn't seem to influence the integrity of the functionality, it does actually heat up what is being blended. For instance, I made hummus, and while it was the smoothest hummus I've ever made, it then took a long time to cool it down afterwards. I think I'll still keep it, but it could be improved.
