The magic bullet is so useful. I used to make custom milkshakes with my favorite cereal or sometimes coffee grounds. It was really fast and powerful. I even used it on occasion for grinding up my herbs. The only things you gotta watch out for is the motor in this thing will burn out if you are blending constantly without pausing. Also, the cups are not easy for me to wash as my big hands do not fit easily in them. Other than that, I would definitely get another one in the future. I sure did enjoy feeling like a was an expert at making milkshakes. I would recommend this product to others.
