2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed after reading all those great reviews, April 18, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tribest Personal Blender, Compact Package (PB-100) (Kitchen)
I started out with a $20 smoothie maker from GNC that worked reasonably well (it always left one ice cube uncrushed for some reason) until the motor burned out 2 months after I got it. So I ordered the Tribest which had awesome reviews. The problem is, mine just don't want to blend. I put in frozen strawberries & bananas with yogurt and I'd say this only blends about half of the ingredients, even when I stop it and stir up the ingredients myself. If I try adding ice to the equation...forget it. The ice just bangs around ineffectually. The blend seems to have good speed though so I'm really not sure what the problem is. Everyone else seems quite happy with it.

I believe you need some type of liquid to allow your frozen items to move about and get blended. Try adding half a cup of soymilk or almond milk or some type of juice, I think you will find your personal blender much more useful. I plan on buying this personal blender but what I just explained is 101 blending in nearly all blenders.
