It's not top the line, but it is a high speed blender. I have gotten blenders to literally smoke, more than a few times, haha... But it's not the temperature of the water, its the thickness, the motor & whether the blades can engage all the material in the container without backing up. THAT backing up causes heat to build up, & it also strains lesser powered motors, which also adds heat & wears out motors.

I have some kick ass strong ones in storage: an old but trusty VitaMix I bought at a yard sale, Cuisanarts, MagicBullets etc
