After using my large blender every morning for smoothies I wanted something I could use for individual servings. I ordered this black Friday, glad I did. I do not use it and prefer my blender. The concept is great it just is not as versatile as you are led to believe.
This is my third bullet and will be my last. Love what it does BUT the motor is not very durable. The motor gives out after about half a year and that is because I do not use it daily nor more than a few times per month. Excellent price. Love the containers - can store many items in them and they do not take up much space in my refrigerator. Would like for them to provide more "gaskets" since they get loose and have ended up wound up around the blade. More lids would be good also. State it will be my last purchase of this item since I do not expect it to last very long. My son in law had similar problems with the more expensive model, the company was nice enough to offer a replacement.
I had a bullet knockoff that I loved and it was thrown out by an overly energetic family member. I was happy to see that this one worked the same way as my old one but the first thing I noticed is that it had less power than my knockoff. I just pulsed things longer and had to manually mix. Today I used it to make a meal shake and it sort of just hummed and didn't do much. When I took off the blades, the gasket had disloged and wrapped around the blades. Not good. I would venture to say that they know about this problem as they include extra gaskets with the product. Good thing, as I will have to cut this one off. Kind of disappointing.
