Personal blenders do exactly what you’d think they’d do – create single servings perfectly sized for one individual. These blenders typically feature a low-power motor specifically designed to meet the needs of an individual who uses their blender mostly for creating beverages such as shakes, smoothies, and mixed drinks. Although these blenders are capable of some other light tasks, such as creating small servings of mushy and liquid dips, it is suggested that they be used solely to mix beverages.
Many personal blenders feature travel lids for their detachable blending pitchers, allowing you to take the entire pitcher with you as a travel bottle. Some of these blenders also feature removable blades, making the travel process simpler and safer.
For those of you in search of a personal blender and a countertop blender, take a moment to reconsider this purchase. There are some countertop blenders which come with both large and small blending cups so that they can flip back and forth between making large batches and single servings.
