The 4 Best Personal Blenders 2022

A personal blender is a great way to make personal-sized blends that you can easily take with you on the go. They generally excel at making smoothies, and they tend to come with differently-sized single-serve jars. While they're not as versatile as full-size models, have very simple controls, and can't hot blend, they're a great choice for making smaller-portioned mixes.

4. Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO

This well-built personal blender comes with a pair of 24-ounce jars with matching to-go lids that you can use to make single-serve drinks. Its motor base isn't very tall, so it's easy to store it under a cabinet or in a kitchen cupboard.

It has buttons for a few different present modes that act as timers, so you don't need to stand near the blender while it's running. It can incorporate ingredients like raw kale into outstanding, silky smoothies in about a minute using its 'Extraction' preset mode. The blender also comes with a 'Power-Nutri bowl' with rotating arms inside of it to help push ingredients towards the blades. It's intended for thicker mixtures like smoothie bowls, and you can use it to make very smooth and spreadable almond butter.

Unfortunately, it's one of the loudest blenders we've tested, which might be disappointing, especially if you tend to make early-morning smoothies. While it's well-built, some parts of the motor base feel thin and plasticky, meaning it may not be ideal if you're looking for a very sturdy blender. Otherwise, it's the best personal smoothie blender that we've tested and offers exceptionally versatile performance for a personal blender.

3. Ninja Fit

This bullet blender is decently well-built and doesn't take too much space on a kitchen counter. It comes with a pair of 16-ounce jars with to-go lids, so you can easily make a single-serve smoothie and bring it with you on the go.

You have to press down on the jar to operate the blender, but it takes less than two minutes to make a fantastic, silky smoothie using either jar. It's also very easy to clean by hand when working with liquid ingredients, and you can also put the jars, lids, and blades on the top rack of your dishwasher.

Unfortunately, its 16-ounce jars are small compared to similar personal blenders like the Ninja Nutri-Blender Plus, which comes with three 20-ounce jars. That said, this model has a much better build quality, and if you're looking for the best single-serve blender for a budget-friendly price, it's worth considering.

2. Magic Bullet Mini

This compact bullet blender doesn't take up too much space on a counter or in a kitchen cupboard. It comes with a 13-ounce jar well-suited for smoothies and shakes and an 8-ounce jar that's a good size for making salsa or salad dressing.

With the 13-ounce jar, this blender can incorporate leafy greens like kale into a good smoothie. There's a resealable lid included, so you can store what you make, and a cup ring that makes it easier to drink directly out of the jar. The jars are dishwasher-safe, and while the blades need to be cleaned by hand, it's not very difficult if you're working with liquid ingredients.

Unfortunately, it doesn't have the best build quality since it's made of flimsy plastic, and the jars don't feel very thick or solid. It's not intended for crushing ice on its own and can be tricky to clean after making something sticky like almond butter. Otherwise, if you don't want to spend too much, it's one of the best small blenders.

1. Oster MyBlend

If you want better build quality, you may prefer the Oster MyBlend. This personal blender isn't as good for making smoothies as the Magic Bullet Mini, but its motor base feels more solid and more durable. It also does an alright job of making crushed ice, which is nice if you like to add ice to cocktails or a few cubes to smoothies. Its jar also has a bigger 20-ounce capacity, and some may prefer its sportier, bottle-shaped design. It's easy to clean by hand when working with liquid ingredients, and its jar and blades are also dishwasher-safe. Unfortunately, it makes a foamy, leafy smoothie if you add fibrous ingredients like raw kale.

If you like to make smoothies with ingredients like raw kale, go for the Magic Bullet, but try the Oster instead if you prioritize build quality or want something dishwasher-safe.

Our above recommendations are what we think are currently the best personal blenders and the best small blenders for most people. We factor in the price (a cheaper blender wins over a pricier one if the difference isn't worth it), feedback from our visitors, and availability (no blenders that are difficult to find or almost out of stock everywhere).

If you want to choose for yourself, here is the list of all our personal blender reviews. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. While no blender is perfect, most blenders are great enough to please almost everyone, and the differences are often not noticeable unless you look for them.
