The BlendJet 2 is a battery-powered personal blender advertised for making smoothies, shakes, and other single-serve foods. It's sold primarily through the manufacturer's website and comes in a variety of bright colors. It's meant to be portable, so 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. It does an okay job of making smoothies and crushing ice but can't fully process kale. The blades also tend to get jammed when you first start blending, and it's not very good at making almond butter. None of its parts are dishwasher-safe, but fortunately, it's easy to clean by hand.

Our Verdict

5.6 Multi-Purpose

The BlendJet 2 is poor for multi-purpose use. It makes an okay smoothie in its 16-ounce jar but struggles to fully process leafy greens like kale. It also makes dry, chunky almond butter, and like most personal blenders, can't be used for hot blending. On the plus side, it does an okay job of making crushed ice. It's also very easy to clean by hand, although you may need to spend time rinsing away soap that gets caught under the seals. Unfortunately, no part of the blender is dishwasher-safe.

Pros
  • 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 adequate smoothie in roughly four minutes, but you may need to shake it quite a bit before the ingredients will process. It can incorporate frozen banana chunks but doesn't fully process kale. However, it makes crushed ice with an okay texture, which is nice if you like to add it to your drinks. It's also very easy to clean after making a smoothie, although soap can get caught under the seals, which is a bit annoying.

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

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

Pros
  • Quiet while blending.
Cons
  • Not dishwasher-safe.
4.8 Soups

The BlendJet 2 can't safely blend hot ingredients.

5.6 Professional Use

The BlendJet 2 is disappointing for professional use. It's decently well-built, but its jar is too small for big batches of food. Like many personal blenders, it has a single speed setting, and you can only run it for 20 seconds at a time. It can crush ice but makes poor almond butter and has difficulty fully processing leafy greens in smoothies. It also can't safely be used for hot blending. It's not dishwasher-safe, but it's easy to clean by hand.

Pros
  • Very easy to clean.
Cons
  • Not dishwasher-safe.
  • Struggles with leafy greens like kale.
  • Makes dry, barely spreadable almond butter.
  • 5.6 Multi-Purpose
  • 6.9 Smoothies/Protein Shakes
  • 6.8 Ice Crushing
  • 4.8 Soups
  • 5.6 Professional Use

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 for easier storage.

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 comes with a 16-ounce jar with a screw-on lid. There's no bottom for the jar apart from the motor base, so the base needs to be attached if you want to drink from the jar. 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.

The BlendJet 2 is battery-powered and comes with 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, although we don't currently test this. You can't use this blender while 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. When you're ready to use the blender again, you just hold the button for another five seconds to unlock it.

Unprocessed Almonds/Chunks

The Blendjet 2 is poor for making almond butter. It can process most of the almonds into a paste, but after that, space tends to form around the blades that prevents the ingredients from reaching them. You need to tap or shake the jar to keep the mixture in contact with the blades. However, after about 10 minutes of blending, the result is dry, sandy almond butter that's barely spreadable on toast.

Foamy and Leafy

The BlendJet 2 is okay for making smoothies. The blades can get jammed at first when you try to blend ingredients like frozen banana chunks, and you may need to shake the blender vigorously several times to get it started. After about four minutes, it produces a cold but foamy smoothie with bits of unprocessed kale that give it a leafy texture. The blender runs for 20 seconds every time you push the button, so you need to run it quite a few times to blend a smoothie.

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, making 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. It's also easy to clean if you make something sticky like almond butter because once you remove the lid and motor base, the jar is open on two ends. A quick blend with soap and water should get rid of any residue on the blade assembly. However, in either case, you may need to rinse away soap trapped under the lid and motor base seals, which can be annoying to do every time you use the blender. Also, 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, including 'Black,' 'Mint,' 'Lavender,' 'Purple,' 'Red,' 'Blush,' 'Lemon,' 'Orange', 'Hot Pink', 'Seafoam', 'Lime', 'Coral', 'Sky Blue', 'White', 'Royal Blue', and 'Ocean'. It also comes in a few patterns, including 'Bailey's', 'White Marble', and 'Woodland Camo'. We tested the 'Mint' variant, and you can see its label here. We expect the other color variants to 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 your blender is different or 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's meant for making 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 better blender than the NutriBullet GO. Both models are battery-powered personal blenders, but the BlendJet 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.

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 that can crush ice and makes better-blended smoothies. It’s better-built, much easier to clean, and comes with a lid that has a built-in carrying strap. On the other hand, the Magic Bullet comes with a greater number of jars and is much better at making almond butter.

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 can crush ice and feels more sturdy.

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 when you’re working with sticky ingredients. On the other hand, the Magic Bullet is much better at making smoothies and almond butter. It comes with a greater number of jars as well as a food processing attachment, but we don’t test it currently.

NutriBullet PRO 1000

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is better than the BlendJet 2 for most purposes. The NutriBullet makes a much silkier smoothie and crushed ice with a better texture. It's also easier to clean by hand and comes with two personal jars with to-go lids. On the other hand, the BlendJet 2 is battery-powered, so it's much more comfortable. 

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.

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 and makes better-blended smoothies. It's also easier to clean and makes crushed ice with a better texture. 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 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.

Oster MyBlend

The BlendJet 2 is a better blender for most uses than the Oster MyBlend. The BlendJet 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.

Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO

The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is better for most purposes than the BlendJet 2. The Ninja produces significantly better smoothies and almond butter. It's easier to clean, 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.

Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender

The BlendJet 2 is a better blender than the Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender. The BlendJet 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.
