All the controls on the Omega OM7560 blender are manual. You won't find any fancy preset modes to blend smoothies, frozen drinks, soup and the like here.

The blade assembly is made from steel and interfaces with a steel socket on the blender base.

The underside of the blender's base serves as a handy place to store its cord.

The Omega OM7560 crushed dry almonds into powder without any trouble. But I was only able to make real nut butter after an hour of blending and pausing to stir by hand often.

Some blenders don't need extra help to whip up a batch of pesto. The Omega OM7560 did. That aid came in the form of tamping down spinach leaves periodically so the blades could grab them properly. I could make a proper pesto, but only after using the included tamping tool.
