About Wolfgang Puck
Austrian-born Wolfgang Puck began his formal training at age 14, inspired by his mother, Maria, a hotel chef. Encouraged by a friend, Wolfgang left Europe in 1973 at the age of 24, having already learned his craft as a classically trained French chef in the master kitchens of three-star French restaurants. After a stint at the restaurant La Tour in Indianapolis, Puck made the move to Los Angeles in 1975, and became both chef and part owner of Ma Maison, which quickly became a magnet for the rich and famous - with Puck as the starring attraction. Fame and acclaim quickly followed with his unique combination of dynamic personality and a culinary brilliance that bridged tradition and invention. Wolfgang has changed the way North Americans cook and eat by mixing formal French techniques and Asian- and California-influenced esthetics with the highest quality ingredients. Over a span of twenty years, he has founded a virtual empire of dining establishments, including 12 fine dining restaurants, and the newer Wolfgang Puck Bistro, Express and Cafe locations across the United States, into Canada and Japan. He has authored six popular cookbooks, and his weekly syndicated newspaper column, “Wolfgang Puck’s Kitchen,” appears in more than 30 newspapers throughout the United States and Canada, with a combined circulation of more than 5.3 million.
Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, Inc. (WPW), a privately held corporation, includes a rapidly growing international franchise of the fast-casual Wolfgang Puck Express restaurants, consumer products, book publishing, television, radio and internet programming, and other licensing and merchandising projects.

The blender is certainly powerful enough. I have only used it a few times but I found it easy to use and it pulverized everything. I purchased the red one and it gives a really nice pop of colour on the counter. I like that it is short enough to fit under the counter even with my undercounter lights. Much better value that the more expensive brand that TSC carries. I just wish that it came with a recipe book.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Of course, if you fill it to the top, you will have spillage through the cap. I have not had any problems with it.I have made hot soups, icy smoothies, and wonderful ice cream in this blender - thank you Wolfgang Puck!I have it sitting on my counter as I use it almost daily and now would not want to be without it.It does everything the VITAMIX does and at a fraction of the cost, I highly recommend this blender.

love this machine
I love this machine!! Makes wonderful smoothies. I haven't tried soups yet but I haven't had any issues with the lid like some people have. I love the preset options and clean up is a breeze. I now try more variety of foods that I wouldn't eat before. I like the large jar especially if you use plenty of ice for that extra cold drink.

Good and powerful blender. I have to agree with all the other comments that it does leak if filled to capacity...also when I performed a dish soap smoothie to rinse it out as they did on tv, the suds overflowed. Someone mentioned that she got a better lid directly from the company. I think the company should send the better lid to everyone that ordered this so that they can have more satisfied customers.

I find it very easy to use, no problems with leaks, easy to get everything out of blender, good power and a good price.
from DOLLARD DES ORMEAUX
For the showstopper price, the power of this blender can't be beat (and I do own the other powerful one and love it too!). Excellent blending capabilty in seconds for smoothies and juices. Rips through ice, frozen fruits, and raw vegetables. I rarely cut anything into smaller pieces. The pre-set programs are really handy to have! Nice touch! I have had no problems with the lid coming off when blending cold or room temperature foods. Yes, a little liquid does go onto the lid due to the holes, but not enough to say it's a problem. I have not attempted hot soups in it yet, but can see how the steam may warp the lid and loosen it up. I will have to try to make some and update the review, but up till now, at the showstopper price and the efficiency it has displayed, it is a great buy.

I bought this blender to make soups.
from Edmonton, Alberta
This blender is poorly designed. I spent more time cleaning up the overspill from the lid I also siphoned off 2 cups with a baster to stop the mess. I was so excited to buy this blender for soups and other hot meals but the cleaning and being wary of trying any other recipies makes me untrusting of more mess and spills and wasted food. Also the book had only one recipie for soup. I was so excited but now very dismayed at mess, poor design and lack of recipies to fit blender carafe. No I would not recommend it to a freind.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

On the fence...
from Northern Ontario
Love how it makes smoothies and basically obliterates ice and frozen fruit! Don't love the poor lid design where liquid comes out (ie. when washing as per instructions on TSC and making hot chocolate as per quantities mentioned on TSC as well!) May keep as my main reason for using this machine was for smoothies. But really it is overpriced for just one use. Still on the fence...Also frustrated re: lack of recipes. Looked online but didn't find much. Really disappointed that they never got to showing the Nutella recipe on the show despite talking about it time and again.

I really like the machine and everything is fine with it: no spilling, efficient, fast and solid. I use it everyday. Also, it is easy to wash it. I bought the red one and it is lovely. The only thing missing is that there is almost no recipes. I hope a better cookbook will come up soon and sent for free to the first buyers.. This is why I give a 4 because there is something important missing.

Lid pops off and smoothie is warm
from ottawa, ontario
I have purchased many wolfgang products in the past and this was the first one that I was dissatisfied with. The lid pops off making smoothies and the smoothies have been warm when I made it. I also found that some of the things that were done on air did not work well with this machine. I think that I will be returning it and get another type of nutrient extractor, will make the smoothies and if I want to make soup just heat it up in the microwave which will be just as fast.Needless to say, I will be returning it tomorrow. I think that this is the first time that I will ever have returned anything to the shoppingchannel in close to 20 years of shopping here.
