View Full Version : Love my Tribest personal blender
11-25-2006, 10:52 AM
I see Alissa sells this rockin fabulous mini blender. I use it so often I have to give it a plug. I have nothing of this size to compare it to but sure works like a charm and very light weight including not taking lots of storage room up. Just had to give this a plug. I make smoothies and sauces primarily. Never had a Vitamix that everyone loves. This works for my needs. Actually thinking of taking on trip to TX in January. I have not experimented with its other uses. See Alissa's site.

I have a VitaMix that I use daily but I take my
Tribest when I travel. It does a good job with green smoothies as well as fruit. I bought the carying case for $12.95 which holds the blender and a space for agave, another jar,etc.

I like the idea of a carrying case for the traveling blender. I have a knock-off version of the Tribest that a friend gave me. Where did you find the case if I may ask? That would be great to have!
I love mine too!!! I have the case and the lids. Its great because you can make your smoothie, put on the lid and go.

Is it just called a 'personal blender' on that website? :confused:

Hey.. this link has BOTH the blender and the case for $68.95~!
And I found just the blender for $47 on the Amazon.com link.
I looked at both the 100 and the 200 and I don't think I need all the extra "stuff." Any feedback on that?

I bought my Tribest and carrying case on Amazon.com. They were having free shipping when I purchased it.

I have a similar thing called Mrs. Kitchen which I take with me on trips, but I was not so happy with its smoothie-making abilities. It didn't get the greens smooth enough for me and I was afraid to run it too long as they say not to run it for more than a minute at a time. I found it very hard to stuff all the greens in to make it really worthwhile. I am not interested in having 2 or 3 leaves of greens...My smoothies have a cup of parsley, a cup of cilantro, and almost 2 cups of spinach or similar greens. Mind you, to be fair, that makes a quart. But for something half the size, I can't see getting half those greens into the 2 cup container and having it blend with any success.
So the last time I went away, I did my smoothie in the same way as usual, except I used powdered greens - just for the duration of the trip. It worked well and I didn't feel too guilty about not using fresh greens for just a few days. I did put in an apple and banana along with good things like bee pollen and seaweed flakes etc. Plus, I didn't have to deal with trying to wash and store all those greens when travelling.
I like this little machine and would really hate to be without it. I use it daily in my home kitchen for things like flax, garlic, onions, and many other smaller jobs.
