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.
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 running, making it well-suited for use as a portable blender.
The BlendJet 2 isn't bad for single-serve smoothies. It's designed to be a portable single-serve drink blender and is light, quiet, and feels sturdy. If you want to blend on the go, its battery-powered design gives it an advantage over regular plug-in models. It can break up ice cubes in your smoothie or shake recipe. However, if you add fruit or leafy greens, smoothies have a grainy texture. While it's easy to clean by hand, none of its parts are dishwasher-safe.
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. It's also somewhat slow to process fibrous ingredients like kale, so it's not convenient to blend several smoothies in a row. On the plus side, it's well-built and easy to clean by hand.
The BlendJet 2 is bad for crushing ice. 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.
The BlendJet 2 isn't suitable for making soup. It can't hot blend and has a small capacity like most personal blenders. It also struggles to make a smooth blend with fibrous ingredients, so even if you use room-temperature ingredients, recipes like pureed broccoli soup will have a grainy texture.
The BlendJet 2 isn't intended for professional use and isn't a good choice for heavy-duty blending. It's meant to be a portable smoothie blender and isn't very versatile. It struggles with fibrous ingredients like kale and tough tasks like blending nuts or ice.
The BlendJet 2 comes in many different colors and patterns, including 'Black,' 'Mint,' 'Blush,' 'Geode', 'Leopard', 'Lavender', 'Purple', and 'Red'. There are also brand collaborations. Their Disney-branded options include 'Mickey Mouse', 'Minnie Mouse', 'Love Story', 'Polka Dots', 'Elsa', and 'Olaf'. They also sell Pixar-themed blenders: 'Woody', 'Buzz Lightyear', and 'Aliens'. In addition, 'Tie Dye', 'Rainbow Fade', and 'Lisa Frank Leopard' variants 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, including color variants that are no longer available on the company's website. The selection of colors and patterns changes quite often, so you may want to look at their 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.
The BlendJet 2 is a small battery-powered personal blender meant for smoothies and other single-serve drinks. Unlike corded models like the Oster MyBlend or the Magic Bullet Mini, you keep its motor base and blade assembly attached to the jar when you bring it with you, which allows you to blend up a smoothie or shake wherever you are. However, it doesn't perform as well as most conventional personal blenders we've tested. The NutriBullet GO has a similar battery-powered design and does a better job of processing fibrous smoothie additions like blueberries and kale, but it's not as easy to clean as the BlendJet 2.

The NutriBullet GO is a bit better than the BlendJet 2. Both models are battery-powered blenders that don't perform the best when blending fibrous ingredients, but the GO takes less time to blend a smoothie with kale or blueberries. On the other hand, the BlendJet is easier to clean by hand and comes in a huge variety of different colors and patterns.
The NutriBullet Pro 900 and the BlendJet 2 have different strengths. The NutriBullet is a more versatile machine since it can handle tougher tasks like making nut butter and liquifying fibrous ingredients like kale. 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.
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.
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. However, 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It's a 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.
It's well-built. 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 jar is meant for single-serves and has a 16-ounce capacity.
The blades are attached to the motor base, and you can't remove them. You also need to keep the blades and motor base screwed onto the jar to drink from it, which is unlike typical personal blenders like the Ninja Fit or Magic Bullet Mini.
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 one full charge provides about 15 blending cycles that last for 20 seconds each. Unlike the PopBabies Portable Blender, you can't use this blender while it's charging.
It's disappointing for small batches of fibrous ingredients. If you use it for a smoothie with kale, the result is a very grainy puree. It's a pretty long, hands-on process to get the smoothest possible blend though. 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 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 prevents 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.
It's not good for crushing ice. 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.
It's not suitable for making nut butter. It can't create any kind of vortex to pull the nuts toward the blades, so you need to shake the jar constantly for the ingredients to continue processing. You also 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. 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 has one speed preset, so you can't adjust the speed to suit your recipe, which is typical for personal blenders.
The controls consist of one button on the motor base. Pushing the button once starts a 20-second blending cycle. You can also double-press to activate pulse mode. Pressing and holding it for five seconds locks the blender and prevents it from starting if the button is pushed accidentally. When you're ready to use the blender again, you just hold the button for another five seconds to unlock it.
It's 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. The blades are fixed to the motor base, which you can't immerse in water.
