The BlendJet 2 is a battery-powered personal blender for making smoothies and other single-serve drinks to 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. It does an okay job of making smoothies and crushing ice but can't fully process kale. The blades also tend to jam 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 disappointing 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
  • 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 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 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 being processed.

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

The BlendJet 2 can't safely blend hot ingredients, so it's not suitable for making soup.

5.6 Professional Use

The BlendJet 2 is inadequate for professional use. It's mostly intended for making single-serve drinks, and its jar is too small for big batches of food. It struggles to fully process hard ingredients like almonds and fibrous greens like kale, and you can't use it for hot blending. Ηowever, it's decently well-built and 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 much space in a kitchen cupboard. You can also remove the jar from the base to make it shorter and easier to store.

Design
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, meaning 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 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 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 struggles to make almond butter. Once it breaks the almonds up into a paste, the ingredients get pushed to the sides and a space forms around the blades. You need to tap or shake the jar often to help the ingredients come into contact with the blades. Unfortunately, after about 10 minutes in total, you have a mostly dry and sandy almond butter that's barely spreadable on toast.

Foamy and Leafy

The BlendJet 2 is okay for making smoothies. It can blend frozen banana chunks and kale into a cold and drinkable smoothie. Ηowever, it has a foamy and leafy texture because of unprocessed pieces of kale. You may also need to shake the blender vigorously at the beginning of the process to incorporate the ingredients. It takes about two minutes of blending, and since the blender runs for a 20-second cycle each time you press the button, you need to press it quite a few times.

Okay

The BlendJet 2 is decent for ice crushing. It can make crushed ice with an okay texture but can't handle too much ice at once since it tends to build up under the blades. That said, it can process four cubes at once if you blend the first three for a few seconds to break them up before adding the fourth.

Almond Butter Cleaning
Simple

The BlendJet 2 is very easy to clean. If you're working with liquidy ingredients like those 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 remove any residue on the blade assembly. 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 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 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.

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.

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.

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, so you may prefer it if you're looking for something portable.

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.

Hamilton Beach Professional Quiet Blender

The Hamilton Beach Professional Quiet Blender and the BlendJet 2 have different strengths. The BlendJet is a battery-powered personal blender that's intended to be portable and is mostly intended for single-serve drinks like smoothies. On the other hand, the Hamilton Beach is a much more versatile full-size blender. It has a larger capacity and you can use it to blend hot ingredients, make almond butter, and make better-blended smoothies.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Smeg BLF01

The BlendJet 2 and Smeg BLF01 each have different strengths. The BlendJet is a portable, battery-powered personal blender that's much better-built and easier to clean.

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.
