comment
" ...  It even has a slot on the lid so you can use the blender container as your cup on the go, if you'd like. ... I will say that while it blends very well, it can't handle overly large frozen pieces (more than an inch or so in length, half an inch in width) of fruit, so be sure you cut your fruit up before blending it.  ...  "
