Blenders in general are huge and can be a hassle to use, whether it’s pulling all the pieces out from the cupboard to the involved cleanup afterward. The BlendJet 2 solves most of these issues and is a great device for personal use overall.
A Slender Blender
BlendJet’s latest personal blender, BlendJet 2, has five times more power and is 33% bigger than the previous model. Still, it’s a sleek design that can fit in the palm of your hand. Moreover, unlike the majority of blenders, you don’t need a power cord to run it. Instead, it’s charged with a USB-C cable. Additionally, you don’t have as many pieces to take apart to clean and store away, which saves time and makes it easier to reuse. And if you were concerned about the sound, no worries there. This personal blender is much quieter than the average over-the-counter one. (Your family and neighbors will thank you.) The cycles also don’t go over two minutes, so for those times you want a smoother blend, you will need to run multiple cycles.
After a few blends, the mini blender does get caught from time to time during blend cycles. It’s frustrating at first, but you can get around that by rotating the entire blender around and restarting the blend cycle. This helps put the pieces of food, such as frozen banana slices, in a better position to help blend. You can get quite a few mixes made before having to charge the unit back up. It’s recommended to charge it again if you haven’t used it in a week to prevent it from losing power mid-blend.
Cleaning the sleekly designed blender is easy, too. Simply rinse it out with soap and hot water, or blend the two together to help thoroughly clean it. It’s important to know that the BlendJet devices do not require the cap to be on to blend. However, for safety reasons, the device will not run if the plastic container is not attached.
A Sleek Blender
The BlendJet 2 is a very well designed portable blender. It fits just as well in your bag as it does on your kitchen counter. BlendJet also offers a wide variety of colors and designs to fit your style. From a solid blue to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themes, this blender is well suited for anyone interested in making drinks. For the on-the-go look, the cap on the BlendJet 2 is designed with a strap for easy carrying. It’s also advertised that you can drink straight from the blender. Just make sure you don’t touch that blend cycle button! While this blender is aimed at individuals creating personal beverages, you can create smoothies for other people in smaller quantities. It’s not recommended to pour a glass for more than three others, though.
Learning On the Go
Figuring out the amounts of ingredients for the BlendJet 2 can be a learning curve if you haven’t done much cooking, baking, or mixing. Here, finding recipes for 16oz (or less) is the key to making successful beverages. If that’s too much, BlendJet offers a mini book (sold separately) containing various recipes that’ll fit in your BlendJet 2. If that wasn’t enough, there are additional recipes available for free on BlendJet’s website. The sheer variety of what someone can make can be surprising. From smoothies to salad dressings, this mini blender can provide something for everyone.
The Final Blend
BlendJet 2 is a must-have item to own for anyone who wants to create small-quantity beverages. It’s also great for those who already have bulky blenders but want much easier storage and cleanup. You can’t go wrong with it. Just rein in some of the wilder concoctions you could put together—orange juice with carrots, yogurt, and pomegranate—and you’ll be just fine.
