Each summer we spend several weeks in the mountains, away from electricity. The Vortex makes delicious morning fruit smoothies possible. Not only possible, quick and easy.

GOOD
It works as advertised. It's sturdy. The bottom stores in the top, so it's compact. Cleanup is quick. Never runs out of batteries.

LESS THAN GOOD
It must be clamped to something strong and stable--which rules out anything in our camper. So it's out into the cold each AM to clamp the Vortex to a camp table and grind away.

Does not blend as thoroughly as the Coleman battery powered blender (but doesn't run battery dead in 2 days either).

Not strong enough to break up ice cubes.

BAD
Nothing.

I bought this blender to take on the road with me and ended up using it mostly at home. It blends up my fruits and veges when I feel like making raw vegan soups or sauces. I love that I don't have to plug it in and find it easy to clean and use. There are 2 different crank options, one for heavy duty blending and one for mild. Obviously you provide the muscle but not much is needed. You will need to keep it steady (it does come with a mediocre clamp) and it takes a little getting used to but I'm quite happy with this unit.

We love our Vortex Blender. It is great for the beach, picnics, backyard parties etc.. It works great. Just make sure you put the liquid in before the ice and it works perfect!

Guys, what is up with all the high ratings? I seriously can hardly believe that I received the same blender as you. This thing is hands down the cheapest blender I have ever seen! It's insulting to think that they have marketed this thing to me as a hundred-dollar-blender, when the cheapest blender at Walmart is of superior craftsmanship.

When I first received this blender, I was pretty taken aback at the overal cheap quality. I mean, we're paying top dollar for this thing, and what do we get? The cheapest blender you will probably ever see. The pitcher in particular is made of a flimsy, weak plastic, obviously cheaper than the pitcher from even a $30 blender. I mean, how much does a glass pitcher cost, in China? $5? Probably a lot less. This bothered me but I resolved to give this blender a fair shot - I mean, it's gotten so many good reviews online.

For the first couple of times I tried to use this blender, I couldn't even get past the pitcher problem. The plastic is so flimsy, it can barely hold a seal at all. First couple of times I tried to use it, it simply made a mess all over the counter, with a geyser of fruit juices coming out of the base of the pitcher. Finally I figured out the trick: you need to disassemble the pitcher every time you use it, and VERY CAREFULLY line up the gasket and threads, and very carefully tighten it down, careful not to stress that flimsy plastic pitcher in any way or it'll bend.

At the third attempt, I managed to get that P.O.S. plastic pitcher to hold water. So I put in a banana, some strawberries, and some ice. I had watched some youtube videos about this thing, so I knew not to expect very much. I was careful to crush the ice at a slow speed. Then I switched to the high speed setting, and guess what happened?

A bit to Tall & Skinny. My strong hubby & I had to hold it down (clammed) so it wouldn't go flying across the table. Don't try to chop kale or anything not MUSHY. The blade is pretty pittyful.

Note: we tried to deliver this email to GSI Outdoors customer service but it failed. We also tried to leave it as a review in their web page... same result.

We almost did not buy it because of the awful reviews 😬

"Hello,

I bought a hand-crank blender through Amazon from you.

We have been living off the grid for 3 years now. I must admit we had terribly happy 3 weeks of use of your Vortex blender.

After 3 weeks it stopped working and so it left emptiness in our short joy lived with it.

We live down in Mexico, so after reading all the warranty info we decided to give it a try ourselves as it would cost us almost the same amount to send it back to you.

This is no claim, it is just an advice. I got to open it and find out what the problem was. In my opinion, the "ability" of the blender to turn to both clockwise and counter-clockwise wears off the cog which has cuts to both sides.

My suggestion: eliminate this "ability" and keep one direction design and blending so the cog does not wear off, thus loosing all abilities at once.

Thank you for the 3 weeks of joy. It was a bit expensive for us, but the shakes was something we had missed for a while.

We will save for a new blender and when time come to use it we will only move it to 1 direction.

Nice product, keep up the good work and let us know if you perfect any of these aspects soon!

Best regards,"

I live in an area that is prone to power outages during winter storms. I purchased this unit so that I could make breakfast shakes in case of power loss. Upon testing it, I discovered this unit works very well. I even threw in some ice cubes into the shake and it had no problem grinding them up. I've already recommended this unit to friends, and would do business with this seller again.
