If one blade blenders have helped you in the summertime, then imagine what a 6 blade blender would do for you and your family this summer. If you are looking for a fun way to make all of your summer fun to last, this is one of the ways that we keep our kids cool and smiling throughout the whole summer. This blender that my wife and I purchased last year is the Euro-Pro NJ600 blender, we have had this unit for a 1 1/2 years and only paid $50. I know that we have seen them as low as $45.00 but we have also seen them as high as $150 at ABT . When we saw this one on sale for $50 we thought it would be a nice addition to our summertime fun. With us having 8 children and 9 grandchildren, we would like to save money where ever we go, and a lot of times we would blend up some cold and frozen drinks in the summer time and even in the winter time, and when our small grandchildren are teething, we use this for our babies so that we did not have to pay the higher price of junior baby foods. This Euro-Pro has been around for several years, so the name alone says that this is a good quality workmanship blender. So, after contemplating purchasing this blender for quite a few minutes, with the sleek colorful grey and silver design that this has, we went ahead and invested the money into this product. This is just like having a restaurant grade blender in your own kitchen.


Description
With the sleek pitcher design, and the patented powerful and sharp blades will help you prepare nutritious  baby foods and any frozen drink foods in a matter of seconds. This will not take up much space on your counter. It is only 10 ½" inches in height, by 9 ¼" inches in width, and 14 ¼" inches deep. But, if you do have to move it around it weighs approximately 10 pounds. I have lifted some other blenders in my time and sometimes it feels like I am going to get a hernia by lifting them, but this one does not weigh much at all only about ten pounds. This has a glass pitcher which will hold 72 ounces and it is clear and the housing is made of plastic. The top can actually hold a ton of ice that when crushed, will hold enough ice to fill two pitchers. The lid and base of the pitcher is clear and the base is silver in color and is also plastic. It is very easy to grab the lid on top and pull it off of the pitcher.

This also has on the base unit with four rubber knob legs that will hold the unit still while in operation. The 6 blades that are inside the bottom of the blender are made of stainless steel and are positioned in such a way that they will chop up any solid fruit or food that you place inside. Even though they advertise that this is a quiet operating motor and they make the base out of a heavy die-cast metal for stability, this is still very noisy and I have yet to find any blender that is quite. This unit basically comes in three pieces, the top that will act as a lid, the middle which is the pitcher or food compartment, and the base which houses the motor.

The blending jar and lid and sealing ring and blending blade are all incorporated in the base that connect to the pitcher. The lower part of the base houses the control panel which is where you can control the stop/start feature, shave and blend, power and progress light indicator, blend only and shave only toggle switch, and number of drinks that you wish to make. All of the parts of this blender with the exception of the base which has the controls are dishwasher safe. The base houses a 1000 watt motor for all of your heavy duty cycles that you may need to chop up. This will chop up all your ice needs to a fine snowy product. This also has the ability to chop, dice, and chop and puree all of your large food or fruits and vegetables.

Features
There are a lot of nice features on this particular model. This has 1000 watt motor, and located in the base for chopping and dicing ice and blades located in the bottom to chop up the food that is placed inside the pitcher. This has a seamless smooth control face to house all of the buttons, which are easy to control like knobs and toggle switches. The panel will wipe clean very easily. There is three switches, for the speed and pulse to control the crushed ice option, instead of just hitting the switch that says on and holding it in that position till you are done this will run automatically until the ice is a chopped. Stuff as thick as solid fruit or solid foods will be turned into butter and pureed, this will give you more power to chop it up, and this motor will adjust for that thickness. This one piece pitcher that sits on top has a capacity of 72 ounces, and it is scratch and stain and shatter resistant glass to an extent.

The pitcher has a nice contour shape so that the food that is not chopped up will be pulled to the bottom during processing. Euro-Pro has a lot of versatility, so they have put these at a reasonable price. Most of these pieces of this blender are dishwasher safe, but things that are made of plastic may turn colors and become brittle after washing them. So, I would highly recommend that you hand wash things like the lid to prevent this from happening. On the very front you will also have a power light, this will allow you to be able to tell where you are at in the operation.  


Uses
My wife and I have used this for several different things, but since this cost so much we wanted to find other uses for it, so we started out using it to make smoothies for parties in the summer time and found that you can also use this to purée baby food instead of buying it at those ridiculously high prices. We would just take whatever we were having for dinner, when the child gets old enough and stick it in the blender and it was actually better for the baby than buying the processed food in a jar. We have also made lots of sauces and puréed tomatoes for spaghetti. My wife has used this for making egg nog and dips around Christmas time. She also uses her dip making recipes for parties. This does an excellent job for the iced drinks plus a real good job on making smoothies. We have found out that this does do a very good job of making shakes, because the ice cream is so thick, but we have found out upon further use, that if you use a lot of milk and a lot of liquids to whatever you are doing, with 6 blades the better this blender seems to work.

When you have a summer party and have a lot of kids around this is a great addition to all of your party needs. This is excellent for all of the younger crowd and our kids would all come running and get in line to get one of their favorite fruit smoothies. The way that this is set up you will get a consistent mixture of fruit to ice and will hold up a straw with a lot of packed ice. The manual controls help you to be able to control the type of consistency that you want in a fruit smoothie. Depending on the consistency of whatever type of refreshment that you desire, will depend on what you set the amount of ingredients that you need to add to the pitcher. Once the selected amount of ice and or food or fruit is mixed and crushed you can take the pitcher directly from the holder and pour the contents directly into a serving container without ever opening the top of the pitcher.

Other than the base and any electrical parts, the rest of the parts can be put into the dishwasher and is safe for the next use. You will have to do some disassembly to the unit to get all of the parts out and washed for the next use. This is made for frozen and fresh fruit or vegetable drinks, if you were to pour a hot drink into the pitcher it could possibly be ejected out when you start it up. The heat when mixed up has no way to get out of the pitcher unless the top is cracked a little. The installation of any hot product could also cause the glass pitcher to crack and shatter if you happen to add ice cold ingredients to the mix.  

Durability
With the fact that food compartment is shatterproof and stain resistant and cleans up excellent in the dishwasher, makes this to be one of the most durable blenders on the market. We have also used this continuously for approximately 1 hour at intervals for parties and dinners in our home, and this still never overheated. One of my main concerns is trying to find a blender that is very quiet. But, my wife and I have yet to find one that is made  extremely quiet. I would have to give this a rating of five, on a one to 10 rating, for its noisiness. This particular model is definitely not quiet, and I would not recommend this if you are looking for a quiet model.

Warranty
Euro-Pro has an excellent one-year hassle free replacement policy, and that is if it fails during the first year that they will replace it free of charge. They will deliver it right to your front door and arrange for the return of the broken appliance and get this, instead of just letting your new appliance continue out the rest of that warranty. They will insure and guarantee that new appliance for an additional year.

Conclusion
This blender makes me dream of the day that I will stumble across a quiet or whisper mode blender. I hope that someone out there will be able to tell me where to find a very quiet blender. Even though this one is not very quiet, it does work very well and will do the job at it advertises it will do. I do like the easy push button control panel and the fact that the food compartment is shatterproof. But, until another one comes along that is quieter than this one. I guess I will just keep on using this for years to come. We definitely got our money out of this one. This is almost a disposable model because it is so cheap that it would not pay to get this fixed if were to break.
