Tribest Personal Blender

For christmas last year Mr GoingGreen gave me a Tribest Personal Blender. I researched personal blenders and this one was the best in function, workmanship, attachments, spare parts and price. 
Everything you can see in the below picture can be replace separately. All plastic parts are BPA free. 
It also comes with a manual and 40 recipes.

This set was $165.

The large cup holds 425ml and the small cup holds 250ml, there is also an extra large cup at 550ml {not in this set}.

The base unit is 17cm high, weighs just under a 1kg with a 200 watt motor. It is not quite as loud as a normal large bench blender. The little rubber feet can also be replaced if you happen to loose one.

These are the two blade options, the two wing blade is for grinding nuts, small dried items like ginger, peel, garlic and also herbs. The four wing blade is for shakes, smoothies, fruits and vegetables. It can also crush ice. The rubber O ring can also be replaced.

The three mason jars come in 300ml, 175ml and 75ml. They each come with a lid and band and 1 plastic fridge lid.

The mason drinking jar comes with a lid and a commuter lid. Also pictured is the mason jar attachment so you can put the jars or the drinking jar on the base. It also fits on IXL jam jars so they can also be used on the base.

This is the base with the 250ml cup attached.

This is the 75ml mason jelly jar with the jar attachment. Below is the mason drinking jar with the attachment.
Being able to mix/blend right in the jar or glass you require makes it so easy and less to wash up.

In addition to all of the above i also received more lids, jars and drinking jars.
I use my Tribest pretty much everyday. Unlike a bench blender where i have to rinse the jug when i need to blend something else, with this little beauty i can just change cup/jars. Wash up is just as easy, give everything a rinse and your good to go.
Wether i am grinding up nuts, herbs and spices or im making smoothies, salad dressing or health drinks this little blender can not be beaten.  

If you want to add a health drink to your morning breakfast then this is the way to go, the convenient size means you can take it to work, fill your cup with everything before you go or even the night before and place in the fridge at work, then blend away at lunch time. It would also be excellent if your going travelling in a car, camper van or even on a cruise just think of the possibilities.   

Here is the link for the company Tribest and this is where i purchased my Tribest here in Australia.

I was looking at buying the tribest for my smoothies. I love kale and pineapple ones.

How does it perform at liquefying solids? I have a bamix which I bought for making smoothies and soups, the motor is rated the same as the tribest, but it doesn't liquefy solids very well.

I thought maybe the use of gravity, having the liquids push up and then fall back down on the blades, would liquefy better. Do you find you get stringing bits in your smoothies?
