For many of us, life is busy enough and finding time can be tough. Even more so if we hold demanding careers that have us working 12-13 hours days, which leaves us feeling exhausted. On top of that, because our day has been so busy, we often don’t find the time to get the right nutrients or amount of calories required each day.
This is where SmartBlend comes in handy. The Australian based portable blenders company sell beautiful blenders that can be used on the go, anytime, anywhere. It doesn’t matter if you are in the office, at the gym, or even travelling the world, SmartBlend is on hand to ensure that you can find time to get those nutrients and calories in – no excuses.
Not only do these blenders come in five stunning colours – black, blue, green, purple and pink to match your personality, they are also charged via a USB port. This means that there is no plug connection on the device adding further weight, and lets face it, an inconvenience. SmartBlend only use a USB charger which is lightweight and can be easily stored away without causing clutter. It must be said, there is no plug adapter included with these blenders, but that is part of the beauty. You are able to use the USB port with existing plug adapter you might have for your headphones or mobile phone, which means you are able to save some space and weight when carrying.
These blenders are extremely practical and have some nice touches. The lid, which come with a rubber handle for you to either carry around with, or tie to your bag, while the top on the lid has a cute smiley face to remind you to enjoy life while on the go J
The lid also screws onto a removable filter/strainer so you can pour your juice or smoothie into a glass if preferred, while leaving behind any residual bits (although hopefully these will be blended). The filter/strainer does not need to form part of the blender, so if you prefer, you can actually remove these full time and just use the lid.
The core part of the blender holds 380ml of liquid, although for best results, it is advisable not to fill all the way to the top to ensure pure blending can occur. It is up to you what you choose to place inside the blender, with fruit and vegetables being favourites. You are required to place water in the blender before adding any ingredients. Ice can also be added to the blender and crushed, but must be with water. When adding any of the above into the blender, be sure to cut them into small pieces (if possible) to get the best results from the blender.
The six blade system packs a punch too. When loaded, it can hit 15,000 RPM to blend food and once the on button has been pressed, it will take around 60 seconds to complete. When blending, turn the blender upside down and press on – this ensures that the blades do not get stuck or caught. Once operating, you can then slowly turn the blender back to an upright position for maximum results. The blender will turns itself off once the allotted time has been achieved. For finer blending, you can turn on for a further 60 seconds.
On a fully charged battery, the blender will complete around 10-12 usages, however, depending on what is being blended, it is advisable to recharged after each blend to ensure maximum outage.
The blender itself comes apart into a few pieces. The blenders are not to be placed in the dishwasher and should be hand washed. The base of the blender is where the battery and motor is contained, and any water damage could result in malfunction of the blender. The blender also comes with a sponge cleaner which can easily be assembled with a click. This is the preferred method of cleaning the blender as it can get into the hard to reach areas that other sponges etc. can’t.
The quality of SmartBlend portable blenders really is something that makes them stand out from the crowd. They believe in their product that much that they are willing to offer a 30 day money-back guarantee – no issues, and also a 3 month product guarantee outside of the 30 day money-back guarantee should anything go wrong with the blender.
