I drink protein powders at work with water and was mixing with a fork for a long while. I was looking at either a shaker cup or this blender. I never had good luck with shaker cups and they're always messy so I tried my luck with this blender. I don't have any clumps in my powder.
This is a great little blender! I've had it for a few months, using it several times a week for morning smoothies. It's awesome. OK, it's not a heavy duty, big, fancy blender. This little guy does the job beautifully.
I've loved using this personal blender. Rather quiet but I haven't used much ice yet. Lid secures on with press fit but have not had any issues with it coming loose. No problems with washing, but I have washed it shortly after emptying so the blades at the bottom have come clean pretty easily.
It blends frozen fruits and protein powders really well. I've had it several weeks and it's going strong.
This little blender surprised me. I use it at work to make shakes for lunch. I found adding a little water to the bottom before anything else seems to help the process of getting your ingredients to blend up. This was a great investment for someone like me trying to keep it quick and healthy on night shift with a fruit/protein powder/yogurt shake for lunch.
