VonShef 4 in 1 Blender Review – Does It Blend?
Customer Review Summary
Overall customers absolutely love the Vonshef 4 in 1 Blender. The blender is small but powerful. The variety of parts and accessories included with the initial purchase is outstanding. Many happy customers have exclaimed that the Vonshef V in 1 Blender is even better than the Magic Bullet.
The VonShef is said to have four different functions including blender, juicer, grinder, and smoothie maker all in one. Many consumers were unhappy with the quality of the juicing portion. Some said the juicer did not work at all.
Others complained that the VonShef grinds up the vegetables but does not pull out any liquid from them. The vegetables are left as a pile of mush, stuck in the blades. If juicing is a customer’s reason for buying the Vonshef, it is in a customer’s best interest to buy an actual juicer. Others were so satisfied with the other functions that the juicer malfunction simply did not matter.
Individuals have exclaimed the consolation of having extra items such as cups, beakers, and lids. They loved the fact that they could make their smoothie, tighten the lid, and go. It makes mornings and everyday busy life much simpler.
A few consumers mentioned the fact that the VonShef 4 in 1 Blender did not perform specific operations to their satisfaction and caused the machine to stop working. Other individuals commented by advising them to carefully read the instructions.
Once a person learns how to properly operate the Vonshef 4 in 1 Blender, it will be an absolute delight. Blending, crushing, grinding, and juicing every type of food possible. The instructions explain what containers to use and how to execute the recipe properly.
Satisfied customers went on to explain how the containers must be properly aligned and locked for the machine to function as one wants it to. Once these mistakes were corrected, dissatisfied customers quickly changed their mind, complimenting the Vonshef 4 in 1 Blender. A little time and patience make a world of difference.
Ease of Cleaning
People love the ease of cleaning the VonShef 4 in 1 Blender. Many satisfied customers remarked on how easy the blender was to clean. Since the VonShef includes to-go cups. This eliminates having to dirty more dishes than necessary. When blending, the rubber grip lids provide no leaks and extra messes to clean up. Individuals simply rinse out the blender, be sure to wipe off the blades and clean up is finished.
Soapy water cleans the containers and cups with no problem. One small obstacle mentioned by a woman is the fact that the cups have small ribs on the inner surface making them a bit harder to clean. Just be sure to clean out the interior of the container well. The ribs help the food to be pushed towards the blades.
Other people love the hard plastic cups and beakers. They informed others that they put them in the dishwasher and out the cups came, sparkling clean. No breakage or damage at all.
Also, an added bonus is using one cup to blend and drink out of. This eliminates the need for multiple containers. A standard blender requires that the drink or smoothie be poured into another container. The fewer containers used, the smaller the mess to be cleaned is. It’s a win-win situation for all.
It has been said that the VonShef 4 in 1 Blender is not as noisy as similar products. Keep in mind that noise level also depends on what substance is in the blender and what function is being used. For example, a soft banana being pureed will never be as noisy as coffee beans being ground.
The Vonshef 4 in 1 Blender also uses rubber grip lids that do help to keep the noise contained, unlike other blenders that use thin plastic lids. Also, ice is only supposed to be crushed in the smaller cup and beaker being that it’s more compact and secure. This causes less noise than putting ice in a large container where the ice has more room to move and bounce around.
Bottom Line is the VonShef 4 in 1 Blender is not nearly as noisy as other blenders of equal size and make.
Are The Buttons Easy To Use?
Not everybody loves the advanced features on new blender machines. This can cause unwanted confusion and complication. Is it not necessary to have twenty different speed settings. The VonShef 4 in 1 Blender is made to be customer friendly. The buttons prove just that.
A simple on and off button does the trick. The blender can stay plugged in while sitting on the kitchen counter. Remember to have the blender turned off when it is not in use. There is a pulse function to provide extra power if needed. As an added bonus, the VonShef 4 in 1 Blender has an auto shutoff feature to prevent the blender from overheating.
Point blank, using the buttons on the VonShef 4 in 1 Blender is truly simple and a pure convenience.
While the VonShef 4 in 1 Blender is easy to use and a great product for everyday use. There is a downside to a few of the features.
First off, the blender is small. While this is perfect for one person making a smoothie before work. If the family wants smoothies or milkshakes, only one drink can be made at a time. This will amount to a lot of time to make a few shakes. Impatient children will not want to wait.
Second, the crushing of ice. A small majority of customers complained of the blender not being able to even crush ice. A few others added in that the blender is magnificent as long as a person does not attempt to crush any ice because it will damage the blades. The instruction guide clearly specifies exactly what container to use for crushing ice, how high to fill it with ice, and how long to blend it and when to stop blending. If an individual properly follows the machine’s instructions, then recipes can be made with no problem or damage to the blender.
The only other downside to this machine is the juicing capabilities. While it is not easy to use the juicing equipment, it can be done. Although, it takes time, patience, and may not be the quality juice that is expected.
