I went to pick up a full sized blender to make smoothies in and realized this blender fits the bill much better. I love it! It's a great blender and we use it every day, a few times a day. I DO NOT DRY it in the dishwasher, although I wash it in the dishwasher WITHOUT THE DRY CYCLE. I think this is the key to not having them warp and not work. I've never had a problem with one sticking or not coming out of the blender. Absolutely wonderful, so much less cleaning and it does a wonderful job blending my smoothies. I always use frozen fruit and I have no trouble with it. My husband loves making frozen margaritas with it. Great blender but don't dry it in the dishwasher and it will last for you!

I absolutely love this product. I make a smoothie every morning using fresh fruit, soy milk, wheat germ, and cinamon. Using a blender for one smoothie is such a hassle, as the cleaning takes forever, and the blender occupies so much room on the counter. This product is small, powerful, and makes clean-up as simple as washing out a used cup. Loved it so much I purchased on for my mothers husband who makes smoothies everyday as well. It made my mom so happy not having to clean up after him everyday too. Additionally, this product comes with six cups, so I can easily make multiple personal smoothies and milkshakes for my entire family. Vanilla for my daughter, Ice cream sandwich for my son, and strawberry for my husband. Truly an exceptional product and highly recommend. I would recommend not putting the cups or attachments in the dishwasher, after reading the difficulties that some customers have had, such as leaking or pieces breaking, I guarantee they made this mistake.

I bought this to use daily when making protein shakes. It worked well for about three weeks. One morning I woke up to make my shake and the canister got stuck in the motor part and would not come unattatched. I had read reviewed prior to buying this and remembered others had mentioned issues with the small band in the blade part of the machine coming lose and getting tangled in the blade. Well after I smashed the canister to get it unlocked to the base - low and behold the white band was tangled around the blade. Needless to say I lost a canister/cup. Thinking that this was a rare occasion I went on using the blender. Two days later the same thing happend. So then I used the different (flat) blade thinking that the white band/seal looked to be well intact. Well this morning using the flat blade - the same thing happend and I lost another canister/cup. So now I am unable to return the item seeing as how I am missing two canisters. $20.00 down the drain. Take my word for it - go with something else.

Customer review by NikonFiend

by NikonFiend

After reading the mostly positive reviews, I decided that the product was so inexpensive that I might as well try it. Do not make the same mistake as me, I would not recommend buying this, even at such a low cost. I used it every day to blend smoothies for breakfast. This consisted of protein powder, milled flax, chopped banana and either fresh or frozen sliced strawberries. I followed all instructions and for the first week it worked fine. It was very convenient to already be in a cup to take with me on my drive. Yesterday I ran it for a few seconds and realized it needed more water. When I put the water in and turned it back on it blended well for 25 seconds. I went to turn it off (twist the cup), but the cup was stuck onto the bottom! It started making a higher-pitched noise as the bottom had only turned a little but it was still stuck on the blending motion so I unplugged it. The cup is still stuck to the blender. I cracked the cup to be able to get my breakfast out and this will be returned immediately. Don't waste your time on this product like I did.

I sold my magic bullet a few months ago and was kicking myself. So I went to my local store to look for something similar and found this. I needed it to make protein shakes, as I am required to drink up to four each day. This product is very comparable to the magic bullet and I am pleased! I love that it comes with extra cups, unlike its competitor at the store. This means I don't have to wash the cup several times a day. It also crushes ice beautifully, and I plan on making purees with it.

I LOVE this blender. I was looking for the Magic Bullet and found this for less than half the price. It is GREAT. It does everything I want it to and is SO easy to use. I am so glad for all the extra cups that come with it. My whole family is using this blender and it is so nice not to have to wash the cup every time. GREAT PRODUCT! GREAT BUY!

I love this product. We recieved it for Christmas to replace a Magic Bullet that had missing/broken parts. It works amazing for when you want something special for yourself and not for a crowd. You do have to be careful not to put the blade on the cups too tight or you can have a hard time removing it, but that is not the products fault. When you add hot/cold items they create suction. Seasoning the rubber seals with canola oil every so often and wipe it clean with a paper towel before use helps a lot with removal when extreme suction is created.

wow, this thing is a great value. i think it's better than a magic bullet. i'm still amazed at the price/performance here. it's just great to make a smoothie and blend it in the cup you're going to drink it from. grinds coffee fantastically too. as far as a chopper, it's about like the magic bullet. they both stink for this. but that's not what you're buying it for anyway. if you want a food processor, buy one. i wish i'd found this before i bought my magic bullet. i bought it for an xmas present and tried it out of curiosity. you can't go wrong with this one. buy it! buy 2!! :).

Works great and very convenient to have the cups with comfort seals, but when you can't get the cup off the blender, it's not such a great product. Twice this has happened. Once we finally got it off with two people working together and holding and twisting. It's now stuck again and there's no one here to help me, so my smoothie is not doing me much good.

I see all the positive reviews for this blender and all I can this is that perhaps those are older models. I just purchased this blender... it looked wonderful and had a great rating. I live on protein shakes for breakfast so I need a very reliable and durable blender. My last blender -a different and poorer-rated brand- lasted through 3 years of daily usage. With the GE Rocket, to start blending you simply attach the blade to the cup, put the cup in the power base, and gently twist to get it going; there is no "on" switch. On my 3rd use of this blender, mid way through blending the cup started to rotate a little with the blades and ended up getting twisted into the power base further so that it cannot be removed (like a screw that is screwed in too tightly and stripped). What a horrible design that this could happen so easily! It's a piece of junk (putting it nicely). I'm taking it back to Walmart today, with my breakfast still jammed in there.

Up until it didn't work yesterday I thought this was a great single serve blender for the price. Handy and powerful enough. I made my breakfast smoothie in it every day for 2 weeks. I was totally happy with it. Then yesterday the blade/cup would NOT go into the base. There didn't appear to be any obstruction, nothing looked different or broken. I went back through the reviews I had read before purchase and saw that this was an issue for some buyers. Bizarre! Also some people had a big problem of the top not being able to be removed from the base. So there sat their liquid smoothie in the cup and no way to remove it. (some returned the blender to the store with the smoothie still in the cup) After reading that I decided I would not continue to try to force the top to fit into the base. I took it back to WalMart yesterday. I got a Hamilton Beach single serve smoothie maker. Less than $15. No it's not the same, doesn't come with several cups & an extra blade. But I just didn't think I could trust the GE Rocket Blender again.

The first week i had the Rocket it worked beautifully. Never any problems, all the pieces were there and it made beautiful smoothies. The second week the blade would not slide into place, so i couldn't lock the cup to start it up. I thought maybe i broke it, so i tried the blade i never used, it didnt fit either! It would not go all the way down no matter what i did. So i am going to return it. Very disappointed.

Customer review by JacksonvilleShopper

by JacksonvilleShopper

The blender worked fine for a couple of weeks. I was delighted with it. Then the first gasket in the blade assembly slipped off and got caught in the blades, ruining the protein shake I was making. Okay, things happen, and there was a second gasket in the box. I replaced it and within two days, the replacement gasket was also eaten up by the blades. I have been told by the customer service people at GE small appliances that there are no replacement parts available and that the only recourse is to return the blender to the store under the provisions of the two year warranty. Absolutely ludicrous. To return a perfectly good blender over a matter of a dime's worth of silicon??? So, take my advice, if you get this blender, save both your box and your receipt. Based on the ratio of 4 star to 1 star reviews on this product, you stand roughly a 33% chance of needing to have both, in order to return the product. That's not good odds. At all.

  • A. Tap the cup with a hammer around the bottom where it connects to the base. This will help loosen the vacuum and it should twist off. I was able to get the base off after using this method the first try. Nothing else worked for the last two days.

Very well designed in that the cups have drink bands you can screw on to make a nice lip and to go lids that are non spill.
