Pretty Good, But With Some Problems
on July 23, 2015
The main reason I have to use a blender is to mix protein shakes. Generally, I only mix the powder with milk, but on occasion, I mix fruit with it as well. This blender is more than powerful enough to handle that load. I have owned one of these blenders for a few months and have never had a problem with lack of power.
However, it can be difficult to properly mix everything together. When I mix protein powder with milk, there are often one or two places near the bottom of the bottle where some of the powder groups together rather than being mixed in with the rest of the shake. I suspect this is due to the narrow shape of the bottle. I believe this blender would have much more use if the container were a bit wider.
If you are planning on using this blender or are already using it, be careful when you place and remove the bottle from the blender itself. If you are not careful, you can trigger the blender to start rotating slightly before the bottle is locked into place. If this happens every time you use it, the rubber will wear over time, which would make it more difficult to lock into place.
Despite these shortcomings, I would still recommend this blender to someone who needs a blender for light use. I do not think I will need to buy a new blender for quite a while.
