Single-serve blenders are all the rage, but are they worth it? We test models for performance, ease of use and nutrient extraction. Our blenders buying guide helps you decide which type you need, and how we test single-serve blenders shows you why you can trust our results.

Our test results will help you decide:

  • which blenders mix, blend and crush the best
  • which are the easiest to use
  • which blenders extract the most of certain nutrients
  • if the much-hyped NutriBullet really is the best performer on the market.

We test manufacturer claims about nutritional benefits from using their products (read our breakdown in single-serve blenders health claims), and also assess whether the blenders really are a convenient way to whip up a healthy snack.

Performance score

Expand to view more details.

Fiona Mair, home economist from CHOICE's test kitchen, conducts a green smoothie, kale, soft frozen smoothie and crushing ice test to determine the performance score. She conducts extra tests (processing nuts, parmesan cheese, coffee and mayonnaise) in those that claim they can be used for these tasks. These extra tests aren't scored, but commented on in the good and bad points.

Ease of use score

Expand to view more details.

We check how small food needs to be cut to fit into the cup/bottle, ease of pouring and drinking from the single serve cup, and ease of travelling with the cup. We also assess how easy it is to assemble and disassemble the single-serve blender, how easy the controls are to use and how easy it is to clean the unit.

Nutrient score

Expand to view more details.

Samples of green smoothie were sent to a lab to be analysed for calcium, iron and magnesium. Because vitamin C begins to oxidise as soon as it's extracted, we measured vitamin C immediately after processing in the CHOICE labs. If you want to know more about how the different models fared for nutrient extraction, see our article about the health claims of the NutriBullet and other single-serve blenders.
