We've had one for about a month and we've made green smoothies almost everyday for breakfast. My 10 year old daughter loves it too. She makes smoothies for snacks with kale, spinach, cucumber, parsley~very exciting to see. She has always been a healthy eater but this has really helped her expand what she eats on a daily basis. It is so fast and amazingly easy to clean. I've also used it for some kitchen prep stuff. I make peanut sauce and in the vitamix it is perfect. I love it.
