This review is from: Hamilton Beach 51101 Personal Blender with Travel Lid, White (Kitchen)I won't be dumping my regular blender for this, but I do use it frequently for my lighter and smaller blending jobs. I decided to get this when I was out looking for the Magic Bullet. Fortunately, the store didn't have any so I started looking at the other small personal blenders and decided on this one. I generally use it to puree onions and garlic for various marinades. It does a really good job. I occasionally find a stray piece but not often. I also use this sometimes in the morning when I want to make a quick drink without having to wash anything. Just drop in the ingredients, blend, put on the travel lid and go. The blender makes perfectly acceptable smoothies or other drinks as long as the directions are followed. I usually keep frozen bananas in my freezer to play the additional role of ice. For under $20, this little gem is a bargain. I have had mine for well over a year and it's still going strong!

I'm trying to figure out how close the blending blade is to the base for small things like minced garlic, olive oil, onions, etc. Your review ALMOST helped with that when you said you can blend marinades. But would it work for only 4 ounces or so?
