Portable blenders – AKA personal blenders – are a perfect buy if you love to blend and drink on the go. They're also a smart choice if tend to make single-serve portions, or if you have a smaller household and don't need a full-size appliance.

We've tested the best personal blenders, including corded and cordless models. We put them throough through their paces over dozens of smoothies, sauces, dips and protein shakes. We also took them on daily commutes to see if these blenders are truly portable. 

We also assess everything how easy they are to use, how easy they are to clean, and how easy they are to store, making sure that the compact blenders will free your countertops from clutter. 

While the on-the-go, take it to the gym portability is the main reason you might want to buy a portable blender, don't think these compact wonders can't do almost everything the best blenders can. Most personal blenders can take on the same blending tasks, just in smaller quantities, which might just suit you perfectly.
