Bought this in 2022 to replace an ancient model I had gotten at a thrift store. I did not realize there was more than one blade or what they could be used for. Slicing veg like carrots, onions, potatoes - easy. Making hummus? Easy. Smoothies, yep. I am not a fan of buying gadgets that do only one thing. This one is easy to clean, does not take up a ton of space, and a great multi-purpose kitchen tool.
