For our tests we pureed soft frozen fruit (some older models pureed soup), crushed ice and chopped carrots. We made a green smoothie (a combination of English spinach, pear, kiwifruit, cucumber, mint, celery and water) and blended kale. For super blenders we also made nut butter, sorbet from frozen fruit, dough and almond meal, and grated parmesan. In the latest batch of super blenders we made hot soup from raw ingredients. The dough, parmesan, dry milling and soup scores don’t contribute to the overall score.

Easy to clean using the self clean feature
I bought this to do smoothies and make dips like hummus and pesto. Very difficult to do without adding extra liquid. It just won't pull through anything in the top. Over blends the bottom and under blends the top. Also very difficult to get the food out as the blades don't come out easily. Takes 3 times as long to get the food out as it does to blend. I was sucked in by the 2000 watts and claims it does nuts. Also can't do warm or hot blending such as soups until they are cooled to room temperature.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
