I was in desperate need of a blender to primarily make smoothies. After extensive researching I decided on the Tribest Personal Blender PB-350. Its the same motor as the PB-150 and PB-250. The only difference is the amount of accessories that come with it.
As you can see from the picture above there’s quite a few things. Here that are listed:-
1 Motor Base, 1 Stainless Steel Blending Blade Assembly, 1 Stainless Steel Grinding Blade Assembly, 1 Mason Jar Attachment, 1 160z BPA free Blending Cup, 1 80z BPA free Grinding Cup, 1 Storage Cup Lid, 1 Commuter Sipping Lid, 1 4ox Glass Mason Jar, 1 8oz Glass Mason Jar, 1 12oz Glass Mason Jar, 1 16oz Glass Drinking Mug, 3 Glass Mason Jar Metal Lids iwth bands, 1 Glass Mason Jar Plastic Lid.
The Tribest Personal Blender does almost everything a bigger blender can do, only faster, lighter in weight and without the added mess and clean up. In addition to blending just about any variety of fruit or vegetable, the high-powered 200-watt motor easily blends ice and frozen fruit. It’s also perfect for making sauces, salsa, sorbets, soups, protein shakes, fruit smoothies and baby food. And with the stainless steel grinding blade included with the PB-250 & PB-350, grinding dry ingredients such as coffee beans, nuts, grains, herbs and even feisty flax seeds is a snap.
I was a bit dubious about how it will handle ice, frozen fruit and especially berries. I hate the crunchy bits they leave behind when making smoothies in a food processor.
No crunchy bits! I love it! Quick, simple and easy to make. Hardly anything to clean! You use the same cup to load the fruit/veg as the one you take away with you to drink out of! Wonderful! No fluffing about cleaning all the bits and pieces when all you want to do is enjoy your smoothie.
And best of all, your forced to make enough for one! For those of you who always seem to make extra. Great portion control.
Small enough to pop in a kitchen cupboard or have on a kitchen bench. I love the extra containers/cups. This way I can store excess smoothies in air tight containers lying down in the fridge ready to have the morning after. I’ve been taking them to work, hassle free!
I haven’t used the grinding attachment yet. Everything feels sturdy.
If you’d like to ask me any further questions, please feel free.
Below is my first run making a smoothie. mmmmm yum! One went to work with me the next day, the other went down my gut!
