“To be completely honest, I got this off the aesthetic alone (after reading other reviews that it was as beastly powered as they say, of course). Not only does it look nice on my countertop, it really blends ingredients perfectly. I love the convenience of just pulling the container off the blender and switching the top so I can sip right out of it. Very easy to clean as well, which is a huge thing for me. Overall big 5/5 stars. If Beast carried more appliances, I’d happily add to my collection.” —AJ M. “So far it’s the best blender I’ve ever owned. I’ve had several similar class blenders from Ninja and even one from Blendtec. I have to say — by comparison I am blown away at the engineering and build quality of the Beast! Not only that but it is extraordinarily quiet too while doing an even better job of actually blending. Thanks for making an incredible product! I personally think this should be considered the de-facto modern blending device, the Gold Standard really. Especially for people like me who mostly just want to blend smoothies.” —Jeremy J. “I have used many devices for smoothies but this product is the winner! No matter how many veggies I put in… everything is blended so smoothly unlike other products which left lumps.” —Marita Della R.
