FIVE STARS...but with a caveat...depends on what you expect it to do
February 1, 2018
EDIT: AND FYI, from time to time I DO put in the dishwasher. It is difficult to get into all the little crevices and usually I rinse out and just swirl around dish soap, but to REALLY get it clean, I put in top shelf and dishwasher and it washes just fine.
I love it....for what I USE IT FOR. I just mix up protein powder, wheatgrass powder, SMALL bits of frozen fruit and almond milk and this works just fine.
I like I can drink right from the blender jar and it washes easily (I wash immediately after so stuff doesn't dry on the blades).
I live in an 1800's house and it has little counter space, so this is another reason I love it.
With that said, I have had many of these personal or mini blenders and they seem...disposable...after awhile.
Hamilton Beach has been my fav. It does say no bpa plastic in the cup, but the cup does get pitted after awhile. That's one of the reasons I got this blender, it has TWO cups, which should likely extend my use.
IF YOU DO DECIDE to get one of these mini blenders, I WOULD go with this one with TWO blending jars. It costs about the same and is great if there are two of you who like to make smoothies OR, if just you, when one jar gets too pitted, you have a spare!
IT DOES mix everything up just fine, but I wouldn't do any large pieces of frozen...anything. If you want a really powerful blender, I would go with a bigger one.
