Blenders have a variety of uses. Smoothies, sauces and soups can be whipped up in a blender in a matter of minutes.
Traditional blenders can be big and take up too much space, but personal blenders are compact, come with less parts and can cut down on clean up time. And, they are perfect for in-truck cooking.
Instead of blending your smoothie or other drinks in a standard blender and then transferring it to a travel cup, the travel cup is built in. Less dishes means less that you have to worry about.
An added bonus: all of these blenders retail at less than $25.
