The switch mirrors the older version exactly. Flip it up to turn on the blender, or push it down to pulse.

The handle sits to either side of the base, letting you pick it up with your right or left hand.

It's easy to put the jar in place by resting it on this spindle.

The base looks metallic but is actually lightweight plastic.

Since it's simply resting on a spindle, the jar isn't as snug on the base as I'd like.
