Ready, Set, Blend

Feel like you’re always multitasking? So is the Mason Jar Personal Blender from Tribest. It blends fruits and veggies, chops ice, and grinds coffee. Plus the blending container doubles as a serving glass -- just fill it with your favorite smoothie ingredients, blend, and then sip your concoction straight from the jar. Jae Choi, the founder of Tribest, made sure the jars themselves are something special, too. He designed the Personal Blender to work with traditional glass mason jars, so you can drink from a sturdy vessel that’s loaded with character. If you’re whipping up a smaller batch of salad dressing or baby food, you can use smaller mason jars. Tribest’s blender works with most regular-mouth mason jars, which lets you blend, store and serve in whatever quantities you like. Tribest is the same company that makes the extremely quiet Humio ultrasonic humidifer. Fruit smoothies, protein shakes, soups, pesto, salsa... you name it, this convenient gadget can pulverize it. In no time at all the Personal Blender will be the hardest working appliance in your kitchen.

    Hello Everyone- I’m extremely pleased to be able to share with you our Mason Jar Personal Blender. I know it’s the middle of summer and, like me, many of you are looking for ways to beat the heat. The best way I’ve found is by making a fresh ice cold smoothie-- An easy meal replacement that is healthy, fresh and most importantly COLD. I am here at your convenience and would love to answer any questions that you may have.

    I'd like to know how powerful the motor is and how loud it is. I love to have smoothies for breakfast, but my VitaMix is too loud to use at 5:30 a.m.(according to my roommates). Other commercial blenders I've tried were not powerful enough to crush ice and frozen food very well.

    @Cathy: The Personal Blender is the perfect appliance for making your breakfast smoothies, it's especially helpful because you can use the included commuter lid to take your smoothie on the go without worrying about spills. The Personal Blender is not a commercial grade machine and it is designed for smaller personal sized servings, but the 200 watt motor is powerful enough to blend your morning smoothie with ice or frozen fruits but quiet enough that it should not jolt your roommates awake.

    We recommend placing any ice or frozen fruits first and then softer fresh fruits last with the liquid (so that when the blender is set up the ice and frozen fruits are at the top of the blender furthest from the blades). This gives the blades the freedom of movement necessary to crush and blend your smoothie.

    My favorite breakfast smoothie is a mix of mangoes, pineapples, yogurt and orange juice. The mangoes and pineapples add a sweetness and tropical flair to the drink while the yogurt gives it a creaminess and finally the orange gives it a fantastic citrus finish.

    I would love to hear about your favorite smoothie recipe.

    @Sara Cruz: Thank you Sara. Your recipe sounds great on this very hot day. My favorite is frozen blackberries, vanilla whey powder, flax seeds, and unsweetened cranberry juice (and ice).

    Hi Sara,

    The Tribest blender looks like it works really well, but the video doesn't show how to actually detach the blended, full mason jar. I assume you have to turn the blender upside down to do this. Is that awkward?

    @Ann : Great question. There is a blending blade assembly (or grinding blade assembly depending on your use) that screws onto the mason jar prior to placement on the blender. No need to tip the whole blender to remove your blended treat.

    @Ann : In order to detach the fully blended mason jar from the unit you simply lift the cup off the motor base then you would remove the blade assembly from the jar mouth. With the Tribest Mason jar Personal Blender, you blend, serve, and store your recipes in the same container, so there's no waste, no mess, and no hassle. The machine features two modes of operation: one-touch pulse; and press-and-twist continuous modes for blending and grinding to that perfect consistency.

    Wow! I can think of so many uses--but a lot of questions too...

    Can you do a rough chop of vegetables, like a food processor? Our regular blender can't really do a decent job of chopping, it wants to puree everything.

    How do you clean the blades? Are they dishwasher safe?

    If I'm grinding coffee with it, can I grind spices later? (We've kept a coffee grinder just for spices, because once you've used it for coffee, everything else you grind tastes like coffee.)

    @Laura: Thank you for your excellent questions. Rough chopping can be easily accomplished with our Personal Blender using the one-touch pulsing action. You simply push down on the container until you have reached the desired consistency. As for cleaning the blades, we recommend cleaning them by hand, however, you can use a dishwasher to clean the blades. If you decide to clean them in this fashion, we recommend using a low heat setting on your dishwasher and placing the items on the top rack. In regards to the coffee and spices, you can rest assured that, with proper cleaning, there will be no leftover tastes from the last grind.

    @Laura: One tip to note: Like with other blenders, we found that you need a liquidation agent to get the contents moving. For example, I used olive oil for pesto, lime and pineapple juice for Mango Salsa, and fruit juice or milk for my smoothies. Food processors don’t always require a liquidator, but blenders do so keep that in mind to achieve the best results.

    This does look amazing! WE have had the same blender for 16 years. WE have been able to buy replacement parts for it when needed. I would certainly plan on keeping this for as long (and ours is used every day), so I would certainly like to know what warranty and replacement parts are available.

    Thanks!
