Personal smoothie blender
I got a little geekily excited when I thought this blender was USB powered for some reason. It's actually better that it's not because even though the Personal Blender is tiny, its motor is 200 watts, about the same as many full-sized home blenders. The blender cup can be used as a single serving size cup so you can blend a fruit smoothie and just detach the cup and go. The motor and blades can cut through solidly frozen fruit and ice. I'm slightly skeptical about the ice because I've found that the only blenders that really can mash ice into a smooth pulp are the restaurant models. My 900 watt Waring Pro is the only inanimate thing I'd save from my house in a fire.
The personal blender, with two smoothie cups, is $59.99 at SmartHome.
