I like that you get the pulp of the fruit with this blender, and that, consequently, the cleanup is very easy. Be sure to add liquid before blending (water, juice, milk. Otherwise the blender won’t work, and the motor will get over-heated.
It blends my almased shakes perfectly. I toss on a few berries sweetener and cocoa. Just make sure you put liquid in before power so it doesn’t get stuck on the bottom if the cup. Shake it before blending and don’t use frozen items such as berries or ice. I add an ice cube to the shake after i’ve blended so that i can shake it up from time to time. Great price and good quality.

I did not purchase this on amazon, however, having owned this lovely little miracle for just about a month, i wanted to tell my fellow members and the world how much i love it. The first day i got it, i sped to the grocery and purchased a fruit tray of pre cut goodies and then sped home to try it. I could not believe for the first time in my life, i whipped up a fresh fruit smoothie with no added sweetener that tasted like heaven in literally seconds. I put cantaloupe, watermelon, honeydew and pineapple chunks with a few slices of banana and as instructed(important people) added a little bit of water. Imagine my shock when i simultaneously realized in seconds that i not only saved myself from purchasing a $3-400 vitamix, versa, etc, etc. , but i actually made a healthy, tasty, low cal, made to order shake that reminded me of a fruit drink i had 20+ yrs ago on a family reunion in the fresh fruit in your yard caribbean- complete and pure nirvana – and the best part was, i knew exactly what was in there cause i made it myself. Still in disbelief and wanting now to push my luck even further, cause surely this must of been a fluke, i rinsed the jar out and threw in some walnut pieces to see if this thing could chop nuts too cause i use them frequently in baking snack breads, etc. Shazam, the walnut pieces became smaller walnut pieces and even stared to become minced in seconds. I was like thinking “how did i get so lucky” as i prepared to get dressed and get to where i had to be, instead of standing there blending things with my mouth hanging open from shock. The next day still high from what i witnessed in my kitchen the day before, i set out to try adding vegetables to the mix to see what happens when i add stuff that’s a little more fibrous than melons and bananas- well a green smoothie is what happened, thank you very much.
This works ok but it’s hard to get it all mixed and there’s nothing big enough to reach the stuff on the bottom so you get chunks 🙁 plus the seal keeps coming lose so it’s leaking.
Works well, but the lid leaks if the cup falls over. I will be ordering more parts such as an additional cup.
Weird smell, kind of hard to lock it, but overall not horrible.
This product cannot be used for any smoothie recipe that calls for ice cubes, this product does not grind ice cubes, this product is great for making milk shakes.
It’s an okay blender for the price, but i wouldn’t have wanted to pay a dollar more. If i was in the market for a new smoothie blender again, i’d probably hold out for something better. Pros:–it blends surprisingly well. I throw whatever i want in there: large ice cubes, huge chunks of fruit, etc—it all comes out evenly blended, even the very bottom of the tumbler (which is the “top” of the blender. )–it’s cute; the purple color is unusual. You can leave it out on the counter without it being an eyesore. Literally, there are no buttons, and no speeds to choose from. Cons:–the worst problem is that when you twist the tumbler firmly in the purple base to turn the blender on, and then reverse-twist to turn it off again, sometimes that just unscrews the tumbler from the base, instead of halting the blending.
This thing works great for the price. I wish they’d sell separate bottles.
It works great, going on a couple weeks strong with daily use blending both fresh and frozen fruit with yogurt. The price is wonderful, the container is plenty big for a single serving, and if you rinse the blades off right away after you use it, it’s pretty easy to clean as well. My only caution: be sure to screw the blades on tight to the bottle. I tried to unscrew it to remove it from the base today, and the jar started unscrewing from the blades, upside down, while it was still running, which would have left me with a huge liquid mess and uncovered whirling blades of doom. Fortunately screwing it back on tightly and trying again solved the problem with no mess.
Very handy tool and easy to clean. I use this when am not in the mood to juice or in a hurry or want the actual fruit n veg in my smoothie.
Man, i’m so disappointed – i’m smelling that oh-so-familiar burnt wire smell when i use this little guy to make my custom shakes. This in no way means this product is inferior or not for you. It simply means it has an issue with my raw oats, frozen berries, pb, egg, nuts and almond milk. That’s a tough haul for even the big blenders i guess.
I love this blender and it’s use for a single person. I am, however, wondering if there are extra bottles available for purchase.
Careful how you place your fruits and veggies. Sometimes it take a while for everything to blend.
Mixes my protein shakes just fine. Loud enough to wake my son on the other end of the house when i turn it on in the morning.
I bought 2 different blenders for myself and one for my husband. This one mixes and crushes the best. The only complaint is that you put the blades/top on it and then invert to blend. The top gets stuck sometimes and you have to turn the whole blender upside-down to get it off.
Purchased this blender at boscov’s for $10. It’s cheap, pretty, love the purple color and it does work. I’ve had it for about a year, but have not used it much, because i don’t know what happened to the rubber gasket, that came with the blending cover. You get two covers – one to seal the to-go cup and one for the cover with the blade. Each one should have its own rubber ‘o’ ring. But somehow i only had one, maybe i lost it when i was hand-washing it or when i was taking the blender out of the box and if i did, then there lies the problem; it gets lost easily. It’s clear color and super thin, so even if i did not lose it, it will probably break in no time. You have to go easy when you load the cup on the base for blending or else you will break this fragile rubber piece and without it, the blender will leak horribly. This is how i found out that something was wrong and when i compared it to the other cover, i noticed the rubber part. This blender does blend ice, but like any blender, it needs adequate liquids.
The mouth opening on the lid is terrible. It is really hard to drink out of. However, i love the blender and the cup is great. I use the lid for transport and remove it to drink.
