The BlendJet 2 is a battery-powered personal blender for making smoothies and other single-serve drinks on the go. It's primarily available on the manufacturer's website and comes in a variety of bright colors. It's meant to be portable, meaning you can drink directly from its 16-ounce jar with the blade assembly and motor base attached, or screw the lid on and put the whole blender in your bag.

Our Verdict

4.7 Multi-Purpose

The BlendJet 2 is poor for multi-purpose use. It makes okay smoothies and crushed ice in its 16-ounce jar, but you often need to shake the jar before the ingredients start blending. It's not good for making almond butter, and like most personal blenders, you can't use it for hot blending. It's also not dishwasher-safe. On the plus side, its jar design makes it very easy to clean by hand since it can open on both ends. It's also compact and quiet when it's running, making it well-suited for use as a portable blender.

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 nut butter.
6.3 Smoothies (Single Serving)

The BlendJet 2 isn't bad for single-serve smoothies. It's designed to be a portable single-serve drink blender and has a light, quiet design. However, it's not the best at processing fibrous ingredients, so smoothies with ingredients like kale have a grainy texture. That said, even though it's not ideal for making evenly crushed ice for frozen drinks or desserts, it can break up ice cubes in your smoothie or shake recipe. It's also well-built and easy to clean by hand.

Pros
  • Very light and small.
Cons
  • Not dishwasher-safe.
4.3 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)

The BlendJet 2 is poor for multiple servings. Its total capacity is small, and it makes a better smoothie if you work with small batches. If you fill it to its full capacity, it struggles to fully process fibrous ingredients like kale, which results in a very grainy smoothie. It also takes a while to process the ingredients since you need to pause to let the motor rest and shake the jar between each 20-second blending cycle. On the plus side, it's well-built and easy to clean by hand.

Pros
  • Very light and small.
Cons
  • Not dishwasher-safe.
4.0 Ice Crushing

The BlendJet 2 is bad for ice crushing. It can't process very many cubes at once, and you need to shake the machine almost constantly while it's running to avoid jams. It manages to break up the ice cubes but makes clumpy ice with unprocessed pieces. Even though it feels well-built, the motor can overheat if you run it several blending cycles without letting it rest in between.

Pros
  • Very light and small.
  • Quiet while blending.
Cons
  • Not dishwasher-safe.
2.1 Soups

The BlendJet 2 can't safely blend hot ingredients, so your ingredients need to cool down if you want to use it for soup. Its small capacity and limited battery life make it less than ideal for multiple servings, and it doesn't do a good job of pureeing fibrous ingredients into a smooth blend.

Pros
  • Very light and small.
Cons
  • Not dishwasher-safe.
3.5 Professional Use

The BlendJet 2 is bad for professional use. It's mostly intended for making single-serve drinks, and its jar is too small for bigger recipes. It struggles to make a smooth puree of fibrous ingredients, can't be used for hot blending, and struggles with tough ingredients like nuts and ice. It's decently well-built and easy to clean by hand, but not suitable for use in a professional environment.

Pros
  • Very light and small.
  • Very easy to clean.
Cons
  • Not dishwasher-safe.
  • Struggles with leafy greens like kale.
  • Makes dry, barely spreadable nut butter.
  • 4.7 Multi-Purpose
  • 6.3 Smoothies (Single Serving)
  • 4.3 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)
  • 4.0 Ice Crushing
  • 2.1 Soups
  • 3.5 Professional Use

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The BlendJet 2 comes in many different colors and patterns, including 'Black,' 'Mint,' 'Lavender,' 'Purple,' 'Red,' 'Blush,' 'Lemon,' 'Orange', 'Hot Pink', 'Seafoam', 'Lime', 'Coral', 'Sky Blue', 'White', 'Royal Blue', 'Ocean', 'Bailey's', 'White Marble', 'Black Marble', 'Woodland Camo', 'Urban Camo', 'Winter Camo', 'Walnut', 'Carbon Fiber', and 'Leopard'. There are also 'Tie Die', 'Rainbow', and 'Leopard' variants that are part of a partnership with the brand Lisa Frank.

We tested the 'Mint' variant, and you can see its label here. The expectation is that the other color variants will perform similarly. The selection of colors and patterns seems to change quite often, so you may want to take a look at the manufacturer's website to see what's currently available. If you come across another variant, please let us know in the discussions, and we'll 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 makes smoothies, shakes, and other single-serve drinks on the go. 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 also makes decent crushed ice and blends much better smoothies than the NutriBullet GO, which is another cordless personal blender.

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 little better than the NutriBullet GO. Βoth are battery-powered blenders meant to be portable, but the BlendJet has a slightly larger capacity and is able to crush ice. It has a dedicated pulse mode and it's easier to clean by hand. That said, making a smoothie with the BlendJet is a more hands-on process because you need to shake the jar between each 20-second blending cycle. 

Magic Bullet Mini

The Magic Bullet Mini is a better blender for most uses than the BlendJet 2. The Magic Bullet makes a smoother puree of fibrous ingredients, more spreadable nut butter, and comes with a small additional jar. On the other hand, the BlendJet can crush ice and feels more sturdy.

NutriBullet Pro 900

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a better blender than the BlendJet 2 for most uses. The NutriBullet makes a much silkier smoothie and smooth, spreadable nut butter. It also comes with an additional jar. On the other hand, the BlendJet is a portable, battery-powered blender, so you may prefer it if you want to blend on-the-go. 

Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender

The BlendJet 2 is a better blender than the Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender. The BlendJet makes a smoother blend with fibrous ingredients, 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.

Magic Bullet Blender MBR-1101

The Magic Bullet Blender MBR-1101 and the BlendJet 2 have different strengths, and you may prefer either, depending on your needs. The BlendJet is a portable, battery-powered blender. It’s smaller, quieter, and its lid has a built-in carrying strap. On the other hand, the Magic Bullet is a conventional personal blender that comes with a greater number of jars. Unless you're looking for a portable blender, it's better for most uses.

Magic Bullet Kitchen Express

The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express and the BlendJet 2 have different strengths, and you may prefer either one depending on your needs. The BlendJet is a more portable battery-powered blender. It has a much better build quality, and its lid has a built-in carrying strap. You can use it to crush ice, and it’s much easier to clean by hand. On the other hand, the Magic Bullet can make a silkier smoothie with ingredients like kale. It comes with a greater number of jars as well as a food processing attachment.

Oster MyBlend

The Oster MyBlend is better than the BlendJet 2 for most uses. The Oster makes silkier smoothies with fibrous ingredients like kale and comes with a sealable lid for its jar. It's also much better at processing thick mixtures like nut butter. On the other hand, the BlendJet 2 is a portable, battery-powered blender. It's easier to clean by hand and better built.

Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO

The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is better for most purposes than the BlendJet 2. The Ninja is much more suitable for processing fibrous ingredients and making nut butter. It's easier to clean by hand, has a much better build quality, and makes snow-like crushed ice. However, the BlendJet is a battery-powered blender that's intended to be portable, and it's a much better option if you're looking for a personal blender that's easy to carry around.

NutriBullet Pro 1000

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is better than the BlendJet 2 for most purposes. The NutriBullet makes a silkier puree of fibrous ingredients, which is nice if your smoothie recipe includes ingredients like kale. It's also easier to clean by hand and comes with two personal jars with to-go lids. On the other hand, the BlendJet is battery-powered, so it's much more portable.

Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro

The Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro is better than the Blendjet 2 for most purposes. The Ninja comes with three differently-sized jars with matching to-go lids, does a better job of crushing ice, and makes a smoother puree of fibrous ingredients. However, the Blendjet is a more compact battery-powered blender, so you may prefer it if you're looking for a portable model.

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 nut butter. It also does a better job of processing fibrous ingredients like kale and comes with an additional jar and lid. On the other hand, the BlendJet is much smaller and lighter, so you may prefer it if you're looking for something portable.

PopBabies Portable Blender

The ΒlendJet 2 is better than the PopΒabies Portable Βlender. It makes better-blended smoothies and can crush regular-sized ice cubes. It's also better-built, quieter when it's running, and significantly easier to clean by hand. Ηowever, the PopΒabies comes with a dishwasher-safe jar. You may also prefer its design, which allows you to take the jar on the go but leave the motor base at home or in your bag.

The BlendJet 2 is a very small personal blender. It's intended to be portable, and while it's a bit heavier than the NutriBullet GO, it's still very easy to carry around. It can fit into backpacks and purses and doesn't take up much space in a kitchen cupboard. You can also remove the jar from the base to make it shorter and easier to store.

Build Quality

The BlendJet 2 has a good build quality. The entire blender is 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 2 is battery-powered and has a fairly short USB-C to USB-A charging cable. The manufacturer says the battery takes about 90 minutes to fully charge and lasts for 15 or more 20-second cycles. Unlike the PopBabies Portable Blender, you can't use this blender while it's charging.

The ΒlendJet 2 is disappointing for small batches of fibrous ingredients. It makes a very grainy puree with ingredients like kale. It's also a pretty long, hands-on process. Every press of the power button runs the blender for a 20-second cycle. You can press it immediately after every cycle to blend more or less continuously, but it's important to stop and shake the machine after every cycle. It helps get the ingredients into contact with the blades and prevent the motor from overheating. If it overheats, the light around the power button turns red, and the blender won't start until the motor cools down. When we tried the test without pausing between each 20-second cycle, it overheated after the fourth run.

It's poor at processing big batches of fibrous ingredients. To get the best results, you need to run about five 20-second blending cycles, and again it's important to pause between each run to shake the jar and let the motor rest. It struggles to process fibrous ingredients like kale and makes a grainier blend with more and bigger unprocessed bits than with a smaller batch.

The BlendJet 2 is poor for ice crushing. It makes chunky crushed ice with some unprocessed pieces and can't handle many cubes at once. You need to shake the jar while the blender is running to prevent jams. It can only fit four cubes at once if you add three first, run one 20-second cycle, and then add the fourth.

The BlendJet 2 isn't suitable for making almond butter. It can't create any kind of vortex to pull the nuts towards the blades, so you need to shake the jar constantly for the ingredients to continue processing. You need to use something like a knife to stir the ingredients between blending cycles. Unfortunately, all that effort isn't worth it since, at best, it makes very dry nut butter with a lot of unprocessed pieces.

Like other battery-powered blenders, like the NutriBullet GO, it's quiet for a blender. Like all blenders, you don't want to stand next to it for hours, but the noise isn't too annoying if you're just using it for a few minutes.

The BlendJet 2 doesn't have any programs or modes. 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. When you're ready to use the blender again, you just hold the button for another five seconds to unlock it.

Ease Of Use
Cleaning

The BlendJet 2 is very easy to clean. A quick blend with soap and water takes care of most of the residue inside the jar. Then you can remove the lid and unscrew the motor base, so it's easy to rinse the lid and jar and use a brush to clear any remaining residue from the blades. However, the blades are fixed to the motor base, so you can't immerse them in water, and no part of the blender is dishwasher-safe.
