About

The Midea CyclonBlade High Speed MBL17HS Personal is part of the Blender test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Blender models like the CyclonBlade High Speed MBL17HS Personal are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Icy drinks (Smoothies): Smoothness and thickness of non-alcoholic pina coladas are determined using assorted size sieves. Blenders that do well for icy drinks also do well for smoothies.

Convenience: Judgements on ease of cleaning and replacing blade; clarity of controls and jar markings; pouring ease; and jar weight, etc.

Puree: How well the blender pureed raw ingredients into a soup.

Results in the following chart are gathered from Consumer Reports’ 2018 Summer Survey of 4,798 personal blenders, owned by members who purchased a new machine between 2008 and 2018.

Our predicted brand reliability ratings are based on a statistical model that estimates problem rates within the first 4 years of ownership, for personal blenders that are not covered by an extended warranty or service contract. We also adjust for the median frequency of use per month. The median number of days blenders are used is 2 to 3 days per month. Higher ratings are indicative of better reliability. Brands receiving a red or orange rating cannot be recommended by CR at this time.

Our owner satisfaction ratings are based on the proportion of members who are extremely likely to recommend their personal blender brand to friends and family.
