The BlendJet 2 is a portable, battery-powered personal blender. It comes in a variety of colors and is sold primarily through the manufacturer's website. You can drink directly from its 16-ounce jar with the blade assembly and motor base attached, then screw the lid on and put the whole blender in your bag. It's very quiet while blending and doesn't weigh very much. It makes a decent smoothie and okay crushed ice, but ingredients can sometimes get jammed and stuck away from its blades. It also has difficulty making smooth almond butter and fully processing fibrous greens like kale. 

Our Verdict

5.6 Multi-Purpose

The BlendJet 2 is poor for multi-purpose use. It makes crushed ice with an okay consistency, and while it makes a decent smoothie, it struggles to fully process leafy greens like kale. It also makes dry, chunky almond butter. Like most personal blenders, it can't be used for hot blending, but it's really easy to clean by hand.

Pros
  • Very light and small.
  • Quiet while blending.
  • Very easy to clean.
Cons
  • Not dishwasher-safe.
  • Struggles with leafy greens like kale.
  • Makes dry, barely spreadable almond butter.
6.9 Smoothies/Protein Shakes

The BlendJet 2 is okay for making smoothies. It makes an alright, fairly cold smoothie in roughly four minutes, but you may need to shake it first for the ingredients to get caught by the blades. It can process frozen banana chunks, but struggles more with leafy greens like kale, leaving small unprocessed pieces. On the other hand, if you like to add ice to your drinks, it can crush this ingredient into an okay texture. It's also very easy to clean.

Pros
  • Very light and small.
  • Quiet while blending.
  • Very easy to clean.
Cons
  • Not dishwasher-safe.
  • Struggles with leafy greens like kale.
6.8 Ice Crushing

The BlendJet 2 is adequate for crushing ice. It feels fairly sturdily-built and makes crushed ice with an okay consistency in about four minutes. Unfortunately, it can't process very many cubes at once because some of them tend to get stuck above the blades instead of getting processed.

Pros
  • Very light and small.
  • Quiet while blending.
  • Very easy to clean.
Cons
  • Not dishwasher-safe.
4.8 Soups

The BlendJet 2 can't be used to safely blend hot ingredients.

5.6 Professional Use

The BlendJet 2 is sub-par for professional use. It's decently well-built, but its jar is too small for big batches of food. It can crush ice, but makes poor almond butter and has difficulty fully processing leafy greens. It also can't safely be used for hot blending. However, while it's not dishwasher-safe, it's really easy to clean by hand.

Pros
  • Very light and small.
  • Very easy to clean.
Cons
  • Not dishwasher-safe.
  • Struggles with leafy greens like kale.
  • Makes dry, barely spreadable almond butter.

The BlendJet 2 is a very small personal blender. It's shorter and lighter than the Magic Bullet Mini and can easily be stored in a cupboard or even a spacious drawer. You can also remove the jar from the base for easier storage.

Design
Build Quality

This blender has a decent build quality. The entire blender is made of plastic, including the jar and motor base. The blade assembly is attached to the base with a thin shaft and is slightly offset from the center, which the manufacturer says helps it blend better. The base sits on three rubber anti-slip pads and has a power button with a battery life indicator light and a USB-C charging port.

The jar has a magnetic sensor that helps align it with the motor base and it screws tightly into place. There are measuring marks on it, and the lid has a built-in carrying strap.

The BlendJet comes with a 16-ounce jar with a screw-on lid. There's no bottom for the jar apart from the motor base, so if you want to drink from the jar, the base needs to be attached. Take a look at the NutriBullet GO if you're looking for a cordless blender with a different design.

Unfortunately, this blender's jar, lid, and blades aren't dishwasher-safe.

This blender is battery powered and comes with a fairly short USB-C to USB-A charging cable. The manufacturer says its battery provides 15 or more 20-second blends after one hour of charging, although we don't currently test this. The blender can't be used when it's charging.

The BlendJet 2 has one speed setting. Pushing the power button once allows the blender to run continuously for 20 seconds, or you can double-press it to turn on pulse mode. You can also push and hold the button for five seconds to lock the blender, which prevents it from accidentally turning on, and then hold for another five seconds to unlock.

Unprocessed Almonds/Chunks
Yes

The Blendjet 2 is poor for almond butter. After about 10 minutes of blending, it produces dry, sandy almond butter that's barely spreadable on toast. As the blender runs, it creates an empty vortex around the blades, and you may need to shake and tap the jar a lot for ingredients to reach the blades.

Foamy and Leafy

The BlendJet 2 is okay for making smoothies. It can get jammed when you first add ingredients like frozen banana chunks, and you may need to shake it vigorously a few times to get it started. Then, after about four minutes it produces a cold but foamy smoothie with small pieces of unprocessed kale.

Ice Quality
Okay

The BlendJet 2 is satisfactory for crushed ice. It takes roughly four minutes to make crushed ice with an okay texture. However, it can't process too many cubes at once, since crushed ice can build up under the blades, which makes it difficult for unprocessed ice to reach the blades.

Almond Butter Cleaning
Simple

The BlendJet 2 is very easy to clean. If you're working with liquidy ingredients like for a smoothie, blending water with a bit of soap takes care of most messes, although you may need to rinse away soap caught under the lid and motor base seals. Even if you make something sticky like almond butter, it's easy to clean out the jar because once you take off the lid and motor base, it's open on two ends. Then a quick blend with soap and water should get rid of any residue on the blade assembly. However, no part of the blender is dishwasher-safe, including the jar and lid.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The BlendJet 2 is available in lots of different color variants: 'Black,' 'Mint,' 'Lavender,' 'Purple,' 'Red,' 'Blush,' 'Lemon,' and 'Orange.' We tested the 'Mint' variant. You can see its label here. We expect the other color variants to perform similarly, but if your blender is different or you come across another variant, please let us know in the discussions so we can update our review.

Compared To Other Blenders

The BlendJet 2 is a compact, battery-powered personal blender that comes in a variety of bright colors. Like other personal blenders, it's meant for making smoothies, shakes, and other single-serve foods on-the-go. However, unlike corded models like the Oster MyBlend or the Magic Bullet Mini, you keep its motor base and blade assembly screwed onto the jar when you bring it with you. It's one of the smallest and quietest blenders we've tested and makes a decent smoothie and okay crushed ice. If you're looking for more options, check out our lists of the best personal blenders, the best mini blenders, and the best blenders for smoothies.

NutriBullet GO

The BlendJet 2 is a better blender than the NutriBullet GO. Both models are battery-powered personal blenders, but the BlendJet 2 makes a much better smoothie, and its jar has a larger capacity. It can also crush ice, although it doesn't have the best texture. On the other hand, the NutriBullet's design allows you to drink out of the jar without it being attached to the motor base, which some may prefer.

NutriBullet Pro

The NutriBullet Pro is a better blender than the BlendJet 2 for most uses. The NutriBullet makes a much silkier smoothie and smooth, spreadable almond butter. It also comes with an additional jar. On the other hand, the BlendJet can crush ice, weighs much less, and is quieter.

Magic Bullet Mini

The Magic Bullet Mini is a better blender for most uses than the BlendJet 2. The Magic Bullet makes a significantly better smoothie, spreadable almond butter, and comes with a small additional jar. On the other hand, the BlendJet 2 can crush ice and feels more sturdy.

Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ

The Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ is a better blender than the BlendJet 2. The Ninja makes better crushed ice and more spreadable almond butter. It also does a better job of processing leafy greens like kale in smoothies and comes with an additional jar and lid. On the other hand, the BlendJet is much smaller and lighter. It's also one of the quietest blenders we've tested.

Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender

The BlendJet 2 is a better blender than the Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender. The BlendJet 2 makes a much better smoothie, can crush ice, and has significantly better build quality. On the other hand, the BlendJet is battery-powered, and some users may prefer the Hamilton Beach's corded design.

Oster MyBlend

The BlendJet 2 is a better blender for most uses than the Oster MyBlend. The BlendJet 2 has a better build quality, is easier to clean, and makes much better smoothies and crushed ice. On the other hand, the Oster's jar has a bigger capacity, and it isn't battery-powered, which some may prefer.
