It also has neat words on the controls so you don’t have to be a tech-whizz. You can select Grind, Mix, Milkshake, Dice, Chop and more, and it will do exactly what you want.

The spout on this electric blender lets you pour contents into your glass without spills or drips, so serving is easy and mess-free. The jar, lid and removable blades are all dishwasher safe making clean-up very easy.
