Our Recommendations to the Consumer: 1. Cut the recipe in half so as not to exceed the capacity. 2. If back to back cycles are required / needed allow more time to cool between cycles or run the unit with no jar to allow the unit to cool between cycles. Running with no load allows the motor to run at maximum speed and the motor fan pull ambient air across the motor to cool.

Great design, go easy on the motor, though I got this for my 17 year old son to make smoothies. He made the most delicious peach smoothie from ice and the Big Train Fruit Tea Smoothie Blast syrup also bought on Amazon. The consistency was smooth and perfect, just like a professional frozen drink. I asked him to make me one. On the second smoothie the motor died. We thought maybe it needed a little “rest” but sadly, it was the end of the road for that blender. When pressed for details, my son admitted that he noticed a burning smell before the motor stopped dead, and yet he kept pressing that button! Bottom line: great design, lightweight, nice personal cup size, easy storage and cleanup. The motor is just not very powerful, and can’t take long blending times. Still, we are going to order a replacement and see if a bit more TLC while blending gives this blender better shelf life. Seems like it worked for some of the other reviewers.Update: we got the new blender and it is working out great. You just have to be…

Awesome and Perfect for Smoothies!!! I was looking for an inexpensive small personal blender that was powerful, easy to use, and could blend a perfect smoothie. I did a lot of research and looked into about a dozen other brands including the famed “Magic Bullet”. What I found out was that not all personal blenders are made equal. The “Magic Bullet” didn’t get very good reviews even though it is by far the most popular. After all my intense research, I settled on this one… The Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender. Here’s the scoop on what makes this surprising blender the “cream of the crop” :)Pros:-Simple and easy to use-Easy to Clean-Powerful enough to chop frozen fruits (and probably ice too)-Pulse button allows you more control because you can start or stop it.-Seems very sturdy and only has 3 parts to it. (lid, glass, and base)-This thing is freaking cheap… got mine for $15.-Blends Smoothies perfectly with no unchopped pieces of fruit.-Power cord…
