Professional Use

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is a sturdy personal blender that comes with two jars meant for single-serve smoothies. It's well-suited for blends like smoothies, and its components are top-rack dishwasher-safe. You simply twist the jar on to blend, but it doesn't have a button for easy pulsing or automatic blending programs like some personal blenders. Unfortunately, it's loud when it's running.

Our Verdict

7.5 Multi-Purpose

The Breville Boss To Go is good for multi-purpose use. It's mainly intended for single-serves like smoothies and works very well for that purpose. It can also make crushed ice and nut butter without much effort. However, its biggest jar has a 23oz capacity, and the blender only has one speed setting, like most personal blenders. It can be somewhat hard to clean by hand if you're working with sticky ingredients.

Pros
  • Can blend fibrous ingredients very well.
  • Makes snow-like crushed ice.
  • Outstanding build quality.
Cons
  • No real dedicated pulse mode.
  • Very loud.
8.8 Smoothies (Single Serving)

The Breville Boss To Go is excellent for single-serve smoothies. This extremely well-built blender processes ingredients very well down to a smooth consistency. It's also quite easy to handwash after smoothies, and its parts are dishwasher-safe if you place them on the top rack.

Pros
  • Can blend fibrous ingredients very well.
  • Outstanding build quality.
  • Comes with to-go lids.
Cons
  • Very loud.
7.8 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)

The Breville Boss To Go is good for multiple servings of smoothies. Its biggest jar has a 23oz capacity, so if you're serving a crowd, you'll need to work in batches. Still, it easily blends fibrous elements like kale or fruit skin into a very smooth puree and can handle ice cubes or frozen fruit. Unfortunately, it's very loud, which will be especially annoying if you need to make several smoothies in a row.

Pros
  • Can blend fibrous ingredients very well.
  • Outstanding build quality.
  • Comes with to-go lids.
Cons
  • Very loud.
6.9 Ice Crushing

The Breville Boss To Go is adequate for crushing ice. Its small jars can't handle many ice cubes at once, but if you work in small batches, it produces snow-like crushed ice. It's very well-built, but it's not easy to simulate a pulse mode because you need to dock and undock the jar.

Pros
  • Makes snow-like crushed ice.
  • Outstanding build quality.
Cons
  • No real dedicated pulse mode.
  • Very loud.
3.6 Soups

The Breville Boss To Go isn't safe to use for hot blending, so it's not good for soups. Its 23oz maximum capacity is also too small for most soup recipes. If you're working with room-temperature ingredients, it can produce a smooth puree with vegetables like kale or broccoli.

Pros
  • Outstanding build quality.
Cons
  • No hot blending.
  • Small capacity.
  • Very loud.
6.7 Professional Use

The Breville Boss To Go is alright for professional use. It has a great overall performance across the board but is more geared for individual servings as its largest jar is only 23 ounces. Like most personal blenders, it can't hot blend. On the upside, it's very sturdy, and its components are dishwasher-safe.

Pros
  • Can blend fibrous ingredients very well.
  • Outstanding build quality.
Cons
  • No hot blending.
  • Small capacity.
  • Very loud.
  • 7.5 Multi-Purpose
  • 8.8 Smoothies (Single Serving)

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Breville Boss To Go comes in two different variants. We tested the Sport model, but there's also a Boss To Go Plus, which comes with an extra Mill & Grind stainless steel container and lid. We expect the performance of these models to be fairly similar, but if you have a Breville Boss To Go blender that differs from ours, let us know in the discussions, and we'll adjust our review.

Compared To Other Blenders

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is a well-built personal blender that can make silky smoothies with ingredients like fruit and ice cubes. Its jars come with to-go lids, and one is double-walled to help insulate your drink. However, it's loud and somewhat difficult to clean by hand.

If you're still looking for a blender, look at our recommendations for the best personal blenders, the best bullet blenders, and the best blenders for smoothies.

Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO

The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is a better personal blender than the Breville Boss To Go Sport. The Ninja has a somewhat better overall blending performance, as it processes ingredients more quickly and it's easier to use for recipes like nut butter. It's easier to clean by hand and has automatic blending programs. However, the Breville has a better build quality. 

Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is a better personal blender than the Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro. The Breville has a better build quality and takes less time to blend fibrous ingredients for recipes like smoothies. It's more suitable for blends like nut butter or hummus. On the other hand, the Ninja quieter and easier to clean by hand.

Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is a better personal blender than the Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ. The Breville has a better build quality and does a better job of processing fibrous ingredients. It's easier to use for thicker recipes like nut butter as well. On the other hand, the Ninja is much quieter when it's running.

NutriBullet Pro+

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is a better personal blender than the NutriBullet Pro+. The Breville is better built and more versatile since it can crush ice. Its jars, lids, and blades are all dishwasher-safe. On the other hand, the NutriBullet is much quieter. It comes with cup rings as well as resealable lids for its jars.

Magic Bullet Mini

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is a better blender than the Magic Βullet Mini. It's better built and offers a more versatile performance since it can crush ice without liquid in the jar and processes hard ingredients like nuts quite easily. On the other hand, the Magic Βullet is also very well-suited for single-serve smoothies and has a significantly smaller, lighter design. 

NutriBullet Pro 900

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is a better, more versatile personal blender than the NutriBullet Pro 900. The Breville has a much better build quality, and you can use it for ice crushing. All of its components are dishwasher-safe. However, the NutriBullet can make similarly silky smoothies, and its jars have bigger capacities.

NutriBullet Pro 1000

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is better than the NutriBullet Pro 1000. It's sturdier and better at processing fibrous ingredients common in smoothies, like fruit and leafy greens. It's also fantastic for ice crushing and nut butter, so it's very versatile for a personal blender. However, the NutriBullet can also make very well-blended smoothies and it's much quieter when it's running. 

Oster MyBlend

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is a better blender than the Oster MyBlend. It has a much better build quality and a better overall performance, meaning it can produce silkier smoothies, smoother nut butter, and more snow-like crushed ice. The Oster is much quieter and delivers a decent performance for single-serve smoothies.

Ninja Nutri-Blender Pro with Auto-iQ

The Breville Boss To Go Sport and the Nutri Blender Pro with Auto-iQ have different strengths. The Breville is significantly sturdier and much easier to use to process thicker mixtures like nut butter. However, the Ninja is quieter when it's running and more suitable for ice crushing. It has a few blending programs that stop the blender automatically at the end as well as a button for pulse mode.

The build quality is incredible. Unlike the Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ, this personal blender has a metal base that feels very durable and sturdy. The transmission is also made of metal, and even the jars feel quite premium.

The blades are quite sharp, although not as sharp (and easy to cut yourself on) as other blenders coming from brands like Ninja. Two of the blades are serrated, which is meant to help cut through ingredients. While you can't remove the blade to clean under it, you can safely put them on a dishwasher's top rack for cleaning.

The lid is attached to the blade, so you can't add anything while mixing. It screws on the jar and then needs to be attached to the blender's base. After you blend, you can put the blade lid in the dishwasher and put a drinking lid on the same jar and bring it on the go.

While this blender has a circular track underneath its base to store the cable, it's hard to fully push it in, so you might have trouble stowing it away. On the upside, the cable will be long enough to reach your power outlets.

It's fantastic for small batches of fibrous ingredients. Using the smaller 13oz jar, it quickly blends small volumes of ingredients for something like a single-serve smoothie. There are some small grains left over at the end because ingredients can get stuck at the top of the jar during blending.

It's superb for blending fibrous ingredients at full capacity. Using the 23oz jar, it doesn't take long to smoothly blend fibrous ingredients like kale, so if you use it for a smoothie, it won't have any unprocessed bits left over.

It's an excellent ice crusher. It makes snow-like crushed ice if you work with a small amount of ice cubes at once. If you need a lot of ice, you'll end up with some melty patches because you need to work in batches. It's not the most convenient for ice since you need to dock and undock the jar to simulate pulse mode, but that isn't unusual for personal blenders.

It's superb for nut butter. It only takes about one minute of total blending time to make smooth, spreadable nut butter. You need to stop the blender once and unscrew the lid to stir, which can be difficult because it seals tightly to the jar. Still, it's very easy and quick to use for recipes like nut butter.

You need to twist the cup to the 'Liquify' notch to make it blend. While the manufacturer advertises a pulse mode, it's more like turning the blender on and off than an actual dedicated pulse function. You need to twist the cup to 'Liquify' and back to the off state to pulse.

If you want a personal blender with an easier-to-use pulse mode, check out the Ninja Nutri-Blender Pro with Auto-iQ, which has buttons for pulse mode and a few other presets.

Ease Of Use
Cleaning

It's decently easy to clean. You can run the blender with soap and water to get rid of some sticky residue inside the jar. However, you still need to scrub the inside of the jar, especially the very bottom. The blade lid is also time-consuming to completely clean because the threads where it screws onto the jar can trap food.
