    I have used Blenders sparingly in my life so when I went to purchase one I read a lot of reviews before purchasing this one. The good: The food processing part works great. I used it to make salsa and it turned out great. Clean up is easy. Smoothies are actual smoothies. While people complain about the containers being plastic I find them easier to manage and lighter. The plastic seems to be of high quality although if you drop stuff I would expect they wouldn't last long. It absolutely shreds ice and anything I put into it. The base is wide, and I have yet to notice any sway or movement while in use. The use of it is straightforward with easy to understand instructions. Cons: It is loud...and I mean obnoxiously loud. However I have not heard many that are not loud. I am willing to deal with the noise because of the productivity and price of the unit. Food processing blade is ultra sharp. I don't think this is a con but they do not supply a sleep for storage of the blade. With minimal effort it will slice skin. I ended up taking a piece of cardboard and making a sleeve for it.

    Lasted 3.5 months then died...

    Was pretty satisfied upon purchasing although the food processor jug didn't really process the food, the propeller just pushed the food to the top of the jug and it's very tough to clean. It was great for making smoothies though or processing food in the blender jug... However after 3.5 months of moderate use, it now only blends water - put anything else in, milk, some berries etc, the propeller doesn't work. Because I didn't purchase an extended warranty, I have to go through the manufacturer and send the item to Arizona for repair which takes up to a month and you have to include a check for them to send it back to you. Make sure you purchase the extended warranty through Best Buy to save a lot of trouble. Reviews for this product on Amazon have also mentioned the same thing happening so it must be a common issue with this model. Id' recommend not getting one that is all plastic as this one is and go for something sturdier. Very disappointing for the price.

    This Cuisinart Velocity Ultra Trio 56-Oz. Blender/Food Processor Silver is an excellent all around system. The motor is very powerful and the functionality of this product is outstanding. All of the versatility in one product. I bought this blender/processor for my wife for Christmas and she absolutely loves it. The preset function buttons for smoothie and ice crush work beautifully and they make it very user friendly. Being able to choose low and high speeds is a real advantage as well. I love the 16 oz. smoothie tumblers. They are very efficient and it is easy to make smaller portions without a mess. The purchase of this unit replaced our other blender and another food chopper that simply did not perform as well as this product. Best Buy had this unit on sale for about $40 cheaper than anyone else and it was a great purchase.

    I went in looking for an inexpensive blender/food processor combo and was disappointed that what I'm looking for is pricier than I wanted to spend. I decided that this model was close to what I want, and the least expensive. So, I bought it on that criteria alone. I have never regretted it. This is a sturdy machine, it's easy to clean and it suits my needs perfectly. I make a smoothie every morning, and the two smoothie cups it comes with are just right. It can handle crushing ice with no problem. And, the food processor works well, too. My only complaint is that the processor bowl is a little small. All in all, though, I'm very happy with my purchase.

    I needed a blender and a food processor. As I live alone, I didn't need a huge capacity device. I also didn't want to take up unnecessary space on the counter. The Cuisinart Velocity Trio fit all of my requirements. Small foot print, reasonable capacity, and multifunction all-in-one blender/food processor. This is a very capable unit. It is a very smart buy in my book.

    problems with operation

    I purchased this blender 5 months ago. Initially it worked pretty well. But now it doesn't blend very well - leaving clumps of yogurt and/or the flaxseed meal that I add to it. A more serious problem is that it has started to leak around the base. I am glad I bought an extended warranty & plan to return it & get another one by a different manufacturer.

    great blender, does its job perfectly, Pricey, but I got when it was on sale. My only complaint is that the lids for the personal containers it comes with do not have a closed lid. It has an open hole to drink out of but no way to close it for public commutes to avoid spilling.

    I was a Vitamix enthusiast until I had to leave mine behind. I purchased the Cuisinart based on the reviews and it's comparable to the Vitamix. The food processor and blender cups are a nice added bonus you don't get with other pricey blenders. It's perfect for quick, healthy meals and green smoothies.

    Works great but is very loud. Can't make smoothies in the morning when everyone's sleeping unless you want to wake up the neighborhood. Love all the attachments and having a machine that can change from a blender, to a smoothie maker, to a food processor so easily. Just wish it wasn't so loud when you use it.

    Nice, compact appliance. food processor is a bit smaller than anticipated, but shredded a block of cheese fast enough when sliced down to fit the feeder. Blender works well as does the bullet-style cup mixers. Components are easy to lift off the base, don't have to wrench it to the side to disengage.

    Excellent Product, the blender works like magic, very easy to use, it blends food really good, the way I want it. Also you can make smoothies out of it, it can crush the ice. I like the two travel cups that came with it.

    Haven’t even got the chance to try the processor, the blender just unscrewed itself during blending and left a giant mess on the second week we bought it. We showed the picture to customer service, they couldn’t help laughing.

    For some reason the gun metal color was $50 less than the other colors. works like a champ, just made some garlic hummus, and using it to mix cocktails soon. we bought this particular model because it came with a blender and a food processor attachments.

    This combo food processor/blender is the perfect appliance for a small kitchen but with a full strength motor. It was the only small FP with a slicing/shredding disc I could find. I love it!

    I purchased this product in a jiffy as I needed the blender no matter what. This product has more than what I needed & in a cost which I never thought of; moreover, I got a 20% discount over the MRP. I would recommend this product for your kitchen as it has juicer, mixer & grinder... all in one.

    We love the blender/food processor! It is easy to use and we love how you can use the individual size cups to make a smoothie for one. It makes the clean up so much easier! It is a bit loud but not terribly.

    I ordered this item online when it was on sale and was extremely excited when it arrived. However there was some brown liquid on it when I opened so I took it back to the store disappointed

    Does a great job, but if you are a daily user motor outlives coupling for making smoothies. First one lasted almost to years so cost per shake seemed worthwhile so I am giving it another shot. Food processing works as expected.

    I purchased this blender to replace an older model and boy what a difference. My daughter loves to take a Smoothie to school and this blender makes it very easy and quick. I really like using the included two 16oz travel cups to make the smoothies for her.
