The Magic Bullet has by far been one of my wisest purchases. The interchangeable Lids, blades, and wide assortment of cup sizes make it easy to use. I use mine nearly daily. Any mess is easier to clean up because there is no additional blender pitcher to pour from and wash. I typically use mine for protein shakes which are quick to make. My only complaint is that I have trouble blending an ice cube or two for them. Also, there was one time the magic bullet altogether broke. The center that spins the attachment around seemed to had worn down leaving white debris. Luckily, I have a guarantee.
