K1531 - Tornado Mixer Set of 4 Hand-Held Portable Mixers
I Love This Little Mixer
I love the tornado. It is easy to use, works well when mixing individual protein drinks and powdered iced tea/lemonades. What I do is fill a regular tall, clear glass with crushed ice. To the tornado mixer I add my powder mix, then cold water 3/4 of the way. I press the button for maybe ten seconds. When finished, I pour the drink into my tall, clear glass filled with crushed ice. Add a straw, and what a nice treat. Before I purchased this, I used a glass and mixed it with a spoon. It doesn't mix nearly as well that way. Keep in mind that you do have to hold the button in while it's mixing.
Good short term use
We have been using these for a few years now to mix protein drinks. My husband takes one to work with him, as well. He has given out the product number to many of his co-workers. All these mixers seem to work for a while then eventually they die...nature of the beast. No big deal, that's why you get four! I was buying them when they were 20+ a piece and they did the same thing, so buying four basically for what I had paid for one doesn't break the bank. They work great for a certain amount of time though. Much better than trying to mix an energy drink by hand!
It works great mixing Metamucil; just get it spinning first and then add the powder.
Jury still out on this one!!!!
I received 2 sets yesterday. Opened up one and tried to use it for hot cocoa. The spinning mechanism came off. I thought maybe it wasn't on good, so I poured out the hot chocolate and used another packet of it. The same thing happened 3 times. I just gave up on that one. I might open up another one and try it, but they may just go back. I will try again and decide. I don't recommend them, though, just from trying the first one. It was not all that easy to clean up. They will probably all go back.
You get what you pay for...
I got these super cheap, below the price they are at now, and what can you expect? You get four! They work if you are just trying to mix kool-aid or something really thin. I had trouble making it mix and fiber solution with orange juice becase of a small amount of pulp in the orange juice. I had to stir first then mix...didn't work for what I wanted it for, but it will work for some things..
Great for my powdered mixes and the grandkids
love these! we have had these for several years now. Kids love them.
These are awesome!
I am surprised to read the bad reviews on these as I have been using mine (still the first one I opened) for over a year now and it's terrific.
We use it for protein shakes with milk or water and use it for flaxseed mixtures and it works great.
I must admit, at first I didn't start the liquid spinning first before I added anything and it did get clumpy but just start the liquid spinning first then add whatever and it is fine.
I just bought another set just in case I need them. So much better than using a spoon to stir anything into a liquid.
What junk! I was sold by the on air presentations. I gave two as gifts before using mine. How embarrassing to know I gave such an inferior product. Mine stopped working after using twice. Did not try to return, since I had already given two away. Don't waste your time and money on these. Ea
This is ok if you are using it to stir chocolate milk or something. Does not have the power of a mixer. Don't waste your money.
I purchased this product 2 yrs ago and I love them!!! I used them as I was on a liquid diet and still use them to mix protein shakes. Works very well when batteries are strong so it is important not to buy cheap batteries. Mixes perfect but make sure that the mixer is on before adding powder mixes SLOWLY to avoid any clumping. I have also purchased a set as a gift for a relative who also loves them. Happy mixing...haha
Son uses it all the time
Got these for my 19yr olds birthday for his protien shakes since i was tired of finding the powder all over the counter as he tried to get it into a drink bottle for mixing. He uses his everyday and it has lasted over a month now - and it must be very easy to clean because I haven't had to do it for him once since getting it.
I asked him how it worked since I saw some reviews had clumping issues, he said it works fine for him and maybe others were adding the powder too fast or w/o getting the liquid spinning first.
He loves them.
Very happy with product
I've previously ordered two sets and planning on ordering the third. Have kept some and given some to others. Everyone very happy with this product. Great for mixing cocoa, protein drinks and eggs. Cleans easily,
