If you've ever shopped for commercial restaurant equipment, then you'll appreciate what the Cuisinart SPB-600MP SmartPower Deluxe Blender brings to the table. Or countertop. This compact blender combines a powerful motor with a patented blade design and the functions that any foodie will require. Stainless steel blades and a 600-watt motor give you versatile chopping and mixing abilities. The innovative design allows you to pulse on either high or low settings, letting you mince herbs, whip up smoothies, chop ice, or emulsify dressings. The shock-resistant borosilicate glass carafe already knows that there is probably a drop or two in its future, and it's ready to handle it. The die-cast metal housing is easy to clean and can handle its share of bumps and knocks. The secure-fitting lit also features a 2-oz. measuring cap insert.
