Rated 1 out of 5 by jjf112 from Stopped working after 2.5 months It was good for a little bit. Good not great. There was some leakage and it was sometimes hard for the blender to recognize the cup. Now the blender doesn't recognize the cup at all. I contacted WS support and they said since it has been 30 days there is nothing they can do. Vitamix support said they have no replacement cups to give out at this time. I don't even know what that means. I replied, but they never responded to my questions.Date published: 2017-11-30Rated 1 out of 5 by MsDena from Bad Design I was so happy to purchase my Starter kit because I was looking forward to making my morning smoothie in the same container that I could drink out of. The slim design fits perfectly in my cup holder, but it is not the best for actually blending my smoothie. It's also hard to tell when everything is locked into place and during that first week, it disengaged while blending and my smoothie was spread graciously around my kitchen. ( I had spirulina in it and it was a disaster) So now, I'm back to using the original (which is way too big for a single smoothie) and just pouring it into my blending cup, which kind of defeats the reason I bought them. I make a lot of dressings and spreads and was contemplating buying the bowls, but I'm leery. These items aren't cheap and I don't want to spend that amount of money on something that doesn't function the way it's suppose to.Date published: 2017-09-01Rated 3 out of 5 by Houston from Modifications Needed I purchased this item when it first came out and returned it. It blends excellent. However it top screws inside. There was leakage even if you did not go past the line. Also the tabs on the inside of the blender where the blending cups lock into broke off. I will say if it is improved will purchase again.Date published: 2017-08-27Rated 5 out of 5 by CICi from Super Smoothie Cups Love mine, not leakage and easy to use. I did realize right off that, if you want a frozen smoothie, ice cubes must go in first and then fruit and other ingredients. It is a great product and I'm getting ready to order the 8 ounce cups.Date published: 2017-08-07Rated 2 out of 5 by Heartwhisperer from Stay close while blending I bought this 1 week after purchasing my blender since they were not available in stores yet. Despite a good tight fit on the blender base, the blending cup "rode up" the base when the smoothie program shifted to high speed and disengaged from the drive socket. I was watching it and immediately stopped the blender motor when I heard the grinding. It put some wear on both the drive socket and the base of the blending cup blade assembly. I decided to keep both since they still work OK and the cost of shipping back the blender and the cup kit would be more than just buying a new drive socket down the road. I live 4 hours from the nearest WS store and bought the blender while on vacation. I love both products but would recommend holding the blending cup while blending to avoid this putting needless additional wear on the coupling. It is not a set and forget situation like the standard large blender pitcher which weighs more to begin with. I wonder if the same situation has happened with the smaller blending bowl starter kit? I also experienced some occasional cup leaking as witnessed by another reviewer despite what appeared to be a good tight fit.Date published: 2017-07-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Ella from Love it Great for everything. Easy to use everyday and not have to clean a bulky container. Mines do not leak.Date published: 2017-07-16Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulaH41 from These are fantastic! I received the 2 Blending Cups as a gift and absolutely love them! No leaks at all! I use mine everyday. The best gift ever!Date published: 2017-07-11Rated 2 out of 5 by RUTHG from Good for blending, bad for drinking I just received mine today and immediately made a smoothie. You have to really tighten the cup to the blending base or you will get a leak. Fair enough. BUT...no amount of tightening or adjusting the gasket is keeping the sipping lid from leaking out the back side at the hinge area. I had to change my shirt and clean the floor. After many attempts to get it right, it still leaks. A LOT. It is also very heavy for a take along cup. It has to be strong for the blending, I get that, but I don't want to carry that around. I will use the cup for blending and pour the contents in something else. I may return this and just get the really small container. The lid is the dickens to open but that may get easier with time.Date published: 2017-06-02
