What exactly is a blending system? It’s a fancy way of describing a blender that had options. If you are a fan of smoothies, you will love this blender. While it does a good job of chopping and mixing, where it really shines is when it comes to making smoothies and other blender drinks. It comes loaded with accessories, including three travel sized cups that will hold either a smaller or a larger smoothie that you were able to blend right in the cup.
A Very Complete Blending System
Chefman is right in calling this a blending system, it really has a lot of tools. First off, it’s a blender. It has an extremely powerful 700 watt motor that is strong enough to handle just about any blending or chopping chore that you can put to it. It’s not the quietest motor on the market, but it really gets the job done. There are three speeds available, plus a pulse mode. This is more than enough to handle almost any mixing job that you may have.
A lot of blenders are now being packaged with individual to-go cups that can be used for single serving creations. This package goes a few steps better, three in fact. Included with the blender are two 24 ounce tumblers and one 12 ounce tumbler that can be used to make single servings of any drink. You just add the ingredients into the tumbler, snap on the blade attachment and fit into the motor top. With no mess you are able to whip up individual servings of your favorite smoothie or juice. It’s a great feature for those mornings when you are running late but really want a smoothie or juice.
The real test of a blender will come when you are using dense and heavy fruits or vegetables. The blade system on this unit works really well and you will find that the powerful motor, in combination with the blades, can handle just about any ingredient that you try to mix or chop. It also does a great job of crushing ice, something that some blenders just can’t do very well at all.
Everything Goes Into The Dishwasher
No one likes to have to clean up a mess after they have made a smoothie. This system is perfect for easy cleaning. The blades, the cups, the mixing jar and all of the lids can go right into the dishwasher. Just wipe down the outside of the blender and your clean up is finished.
Should you buy this blending system? You can find this package for less than $60 at most retailers. For that price you get the blender, the mixing jar and three travel mixing tumblers. However, the mixing jar and tumblers are plastic, meaning they can crack or discolor with use. Plastic is lighter than glass, so it’s also easier to handle the assorted mixing jars. It’s a trade off, plastic is cheaper so the price is kept down. If you are a fan of smoothies, this is an excellent blender to purchase.
