I never knew I "needed" a product like this until my husband gave it to me for Christmas.  Now I don't know how I ever did without it!  I love it!  I've never used a Magic Bullet, so I don't know how it compares to that, but I'm perfectly happy with the Bella Rocket.

I love making smoothies, but I often wouldn't because I hated hauling my blender out just to make one or two small smoothies.  The Bella makes it easy to quickly make a delicious smoothie and I always make the right amount.  I also like that it has a smaller cup.  I use that to make my two year old's smoothies.

Another favorite about the Bella is all of the accesories.  It comes with rings to put on the cup so you can drink straight from it.  It also has lids for storing and lids to use it as a shaker cup.

I make a tomato salsa type dressing for a yummy beans and rice recipe and it's nice to be able to stick a lid on the cup to store the leftovers in the fridge.

If my Bella blender ever breaks I'll definitely be replacing it.  I love it!

The Bella Cucina Rocket Blender set was given to me as a gift, and given the choice I would much rather have gone with a single stand blender of more power.

While the rocket blender set is convenient in that it has separate cups that can be switched out, so that you can make your shake and serve it in the same container, what it has in convenience it lacks in power. Simple smoothies or shakes made with ice or frozen fruit never get blended thoroughly or evenly, no matter how long the machine is left to blend. Even if it is left to blend for several minutes, the machine starts to smell of burnt rubber, as if something is about to blow.

Also, the set came with no particularly large cube in which to blend, making one really large shake to share amongst others was thus not an option. Therefore, this machine is best if one only makes simple shakes or smoothies out of soft materials for a party of one. I would like a set, especially one that takes up so much room, to have more versatility than that.

    Comments about Bella 12-Piece Rocket Blender:

    We purchased this mixer for a great price on Black Friday, but it has since become one of our most valuable purchases! I was concerned being a brand that I'd never heard before it would be of poor quality, but that hasn't been an issue so far. It's small but mighty (I was once just wanted to chop up some pecans with it and quickly found that the attachment with longer blades is fully capable of producing pecan-butter!). The most important feature for me, however, is how easy it is to clean. The agony of having to clean most full sized blenders is always my number one deterrent in pulling one out to use! Another great thing about this blender is all of the nifty attachments and cups it comes with, including a half sized cup which for an even smaller portion to blend. I don't mean to gush, but really my boyfriend and I have been blown away with how happy we've been with this purchase.

    It's the cheaper option for a reason.

    Comments about Bella 12-Piece Rocket Blender:

    A friend had suggested the Bella 12-Piece Rocket Blender as a good alternative to another "nutri" type blender, which is significantly more expensive. The upside of this blender is that you can make individual smoothies to go, which is convenient. The downside is that it is not as powerful as it's name-branded, more expensive competitor, and tends to not blend food as well. I wouldn't recommend this, unless you absolutely cannot afford the name-brand version.

    Blending Power
    Not as good at it's competition. When trying to make frozen drinks, I often find large chunks of frozen strawberries or mangos in my drink, which then get stuck in my straw and make the smoothie impossible to drink.

    Versatility
    It's ok - but this type of blending system is really only meant for smoothies, and maybe cold soups. You can't blend large amounts of anything.

    Ease of Cleaning
    If you don't clean the cups IMMEDIATELY after using them, it's very difficult.

    Ease of Use
    Very easy to use.

    Durability
    Durable system, no complaints here.

    Bella Blender

    By 

    from Menasha, WI

    Comments about Bella 12-Piece Rocket Blender:

    I recently bought the Bella 12-piece Rocket Blender to have a quick way to work up smoothies. I have found it to be very good at blending all types of fruits and whipping them into a smooth, easy on-the-go drink.

    Blending Power
    For a smaller unit, I feel this has a good amount of power. However, I make sure to cut up the firmer items and place them last - which will put them closest to the blades when blending. I also add juice or milk first and last in my process, which I feel helps the blending process.

    Versatility
    I use the blender mostly for my smoothies, but have also used it to make fresh soups and sauces. It works very well for these types of things. It probably doesn't have the power to liquefy hard items like carrots and such - although if you cut them up into small pieces, it would probably work well.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Bella 12-piece Rocket Blender is a snap to take apart, clean up and store away until your next need arises. It comes apart easily. The blender doesn't have any small hard to get a crevices where foods can hide and be hard to clean. It takes just a few minutes at most to take it apart, clean the parts you used, and store it away.

    Ease of Use
    The Bella Blender is quite easy to use. I simply add the ingredients I want, pop the container onto the blender, and turn it on. At that point, my smoothie, or whatever I'm making, is done and ready to go. The clean up as explained above is also easy to do.

    Design
    I have no issues with the design of the unit. I came in different colors and has a modern, sleekness to it that I like. I store it away, but it wouldn't look bad if left on one's counter.

    Durability
    So far, I've been pleased with the Bella Rocket's durability. I use the blender every day at least once if not more. It has not lost any power nor does it look worse for the wear. I feel it will be a unit that I will have for a long time and will consistently perform well.

    One Powerful Little Guy!

    Comments about Bella 12-Piece Rocket Blender:

    I purchased this blender during Black Friday a few years ago and it has been one of the very best purchases yet! It is powerful and crushes ice like a champ. It is my go to kitchen gadget and has yet to let me down. It comes with so many extras! Two different size cups, different types of blades, cup rim covers for comfort, lids for storage and so much more!

    I personally use it most to grind coffee and make smoothies. It makes a mean salsa too! I rarely use my full size blender anymore. I highly recommend this to all students or young folks who need a good blender. It takes up no space at all on the kitchen counter. This is the best all-in-one blender. A great alternative to pricey competitors for sure.

    I highly recommend following the instructions. I once filled the cup past the fill line and the cup got stuck on the blender. It was easy to remove. It is also very easy to clean and store.

    Compares well with other blenders

    By 

    from Sacramento, CA

    Comments about Bella 12-Piece Rocket Blender:

    I own this Bella 12-Piece Rocket Blender and a Magic Bullet. The first thing I note between the two of them is that the price is quite different. The Bella is much less expensive than the Magic Bullet. So, I asked myself if the price difference had much to do with the quality difference. For the incremental increase in price, was I receiving an incremental difference in performance, ease of cleaning, and other important factors.

    For me, the answer was a resounding no. This little rocket blender performs as well as the more expensive Magic Bullet. It is a pleasure to use, for the following reasons:

    It really does a great job in turning dry ingredients into an almost powder consistency. For example, it is great for making herbs and flowers into the consistency necessary to put them in my homemade soap. It is super easy to use!

    Likewise, for everyday kitchen use, it chops, blends and mixes extremely well. Because of this, I use it often. This leads to discuss the next really pleasant aspect--the ease of cleaning. It is so easy to clean, much easier than a traditional blender.

    For the performance and the price, this is a go to product!

    Great for smoothies

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Bella 12-Piece Rocket Blender:

    I love this Bella blender and cannot imagine smoothies without it. I use it almost every day. It is so easy to clean up and the convenience of being able to use it as a cup also makes it very worthwhile. I also like that it helps you to not be wasteful. Sometimes with larger blenders you feel like you are not making enough because it looks so small in the large canister that you fill it up and end up wasting food. That does not happen with Bella. It is very easy to take apart and put back together. It is compact enough to fit inside virtually any cabinet. The blending power is perfect; not too strong or too weak. You can use it for pretty much anything. The only downside is that since it is smaller, if you are making a large recipe you might have to do a few different batches to complete your blending. Other than that it is the perfect blender! If I ever need to, I would definitely purchase this product again.

    Pretty good but slight flaws

    Comments about Bella 12-Piece Rocket Blender:

    I Like the product, it does the job great. My only issues are that there is slight drippage while blending and also the way you stop it is slightly awkward.

    Blending Power
    The blender seems to break up everything pretty well. I blend a lot of fresh and frozen fruits and it always comes out well

    Makes Life Easier

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Bella 12-Piece Rocket Blender:

    As an athlete, I drink protein shakes daily and this works great for them. They are smooth and creamy with no lumps which is impossible to achieve from using a shaker. You can also blend anything into them like peanut butter or spinach to increase the nutritional value. It is also useful for smoothies and can even be used to assist in making a variety of sauces. It can do anything a standard blender can do only easier. It is not the easiest thing to clean but it is much easier to clean than most blenders. It is also very convenient if you are in a rush to go somewhere. You can just very quickly blend yourself a smoothie, unscrew the blade, and take it on the road with you to go. It is also handy for travel. I travel a lot and it is nice to be able to take it with me and use it on the road. This is just my personal use but it is truly a great product. There are probably many other uses to it that anyone else could find to suit their life and make life easier.

    Comments about Bella 12-Piece Rocket Blender:

    It gets the job done, but nothing special about it and it only makes one at a time but that makes clean up easier. You'll definitely have to chop most things up first. It blends ice, but not very well.

    Blending Power
    Have to chop up most things, but it blends frozen fruit and ice.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Small, always fits in the dishwasher and sink.

    Ease of Use
    So simple a cave man could do it.
