2.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Blender, March 10, 2010
This review is from: BELLA Personal Size Rocket Blender, 12 piece set, color stainless steel and chrome (Kitchen)
I bought this about a month ago and have had nothing but pure joy using it. It makes a great smoothie, is super easy to clean, and an amazing value when it's on sale. I think those with negative experiences are maybe expecting too much from it. First of all, it is NOT a regular size blender. Those having problems blending are probably treating it like a regular blender. It is meant to be used for individual/smaller jobs. It makes a perfect smoothie for one person if you don't overload it and if you use enough liquid to balance out the frozen pieces (i.e.- ice, fruit, etc.). I can easily make and clean my breakfast in less than 3 minutes and then am out the door. As for the noise? Yes, it does have a motor. Motors make noise. And since you're not suppose to have it running for more than 3 minutes (usually it only takes me 30 seconds), I don't see how anyone can't just bear with the noise for that short period. Come on...it's not like you have to live with that noise all day!

UPDATE...
I'm sad to report I'm changing my rating from 5 stars to 2 stars. During my 3 month ownership, I've exchanged once then later returned it. The first time, the motor died and I thought maybe I put too much in the blender so was partly my fault. On the second one, the cup got stuck in the middle of use. I tried everything, including getting a screwdriver to pry it open, but the cup wouldn't budge. I immediately took it back to Macy's, with the smoothie still in the cup! They were great about letting me return it, even with the smoothie still inside. I'm sad b/c i really love the look and convenience of this blender.

My wife had the same thing happen when she locked the cup on, blender going, walked away for a few seconds, then came back to find it locked on, unable to twist it off. You can use a small flat head screwdriver to unlock it, with it unplugged of course. I told her to not lock it on again, just do a few short burst blends, as most items don't need to be blended for more than 15 seconds - never had another issue

This exact same thing happened to me after about 25 uses. I would not purchase this again. I want my money back

I have experienced the same thing. But I tried everything to open up the jar which I eventually did it. After opening the jar, I saw that the rubber gasket was broken and got tangled with the blades causing it to lock.

Same problem here. I've been having trouble with getting the lid off of the container after grinding coffee. I use the "few short bursts" that they recommend, and then I could break my hands trying to get the damn lid off. As I'm typing this, my right hand is hurting. The only way I got the lid off was by banging the the thing on the floor of my kitchen mainly out of anger and desperation to get to the coffee I'd just ground.

Can you please explain what you mean by "locking" the cup? I'm having terrible trouble getting the lid off the container after using this blender, and I'm wondering if we're talking about the same thing.
