REVIEW – In relation to my kitchen counter tops. I like them to be clutter-free. That features home equipment and their cords. I maintain the toaster within the cupboard together with different home equipment just like the Cuisinart GR-5B Series Griddler FIVE tabletop grill and panini press that I reviewed. I do have the Chefwave Milkmade non-dairy milk maker on the counter simply because it’s giant and there’s no room left within the cupboard. Then there’s a blender for my after-workout smoothies. I maintain it on the counter too however I hate taking a look at it as a result of it’s ugly. Right this moment I wish to present you the Millo Good Cordless Blender. It’s cordless and is the other of ugly. However does this blender work in addition to it appears? That’s what we’re right here to search out out!
Millo is a cordless blender that makes use of magic to mix your smoothies. Okay, not likely… It makes use of magnetic air drive expertise which appears like magic to me.
What’s within the field?
- Millo blender base
- Blender lid with blades and canopy
- 500 ml (17 Oz) Cup with consuming lid
- AC adapter with USB C cable and 4 outlet adapters
Design and options
The Millo Good Cordless Blender has 3 fundamental elements. There’s the bottom that appears in contrast to different blenders that I’ve used prior to now. It has a modern and futuristic design with none bodily buttons on prime. The shortage of buttons positively makes it simpler to wash.
On the underside of the bottom is the ability button and on the facet is a USB-C charging port.
Then there’s the mixing lid which I’m holding within the picture above. It has the duvet on it on this image.
After which there’s the cup with the consuming lid. I used to be glad to see that the cup is fabricated from BPA-free Tritan. The cup is fabricated from thick plastic and is dishwasher secure.
The mixing lid appears a bit like a white hockey puck.
However if you take away the protecting cowl, you see 4 chrome steel blender blades. Sadly, the blender lid is NOT dishwasher secure.
The mixing lid is named a lid which makes it sound prefer it goes on prime of the cup, but it surely actually screws into the underside – kinda. This can make extra sense in a minute.
With the blender lid screwed into the cup, it may be positioned on prime of the blender base. There aren’t any slots to lock the cup into as a result of it connects to the millo base with magnets like… magic 🙂
When the millo cup is with the blender lid hooked up is positioned on the blender base, LED will mild up briefly. There are 3 LEDs on the left facet which might be for the mixing modes: smoothie, pulse, and silent. Urgent one in all these buttons with the cup in place will begin the mixing session which lasts 60 seconds. Or, you need to use your finger to swipe the fitting facet for a guide session of your required pace. Here’s what millo’s consumer information says concerning the 3 mixing modes:
Smoothie mode. The blender routinely alternates between mixing and pulsing regimes to make sure that all substances are correctly crushed. The blender will cease routinely after 50 to 60 seconds.
Pulse mode. The blender pulses ice cubes or different onerous substances contained in the cup to attenuate the opportunity of them sticking to the highest of the cup.
Silent mode. Just like smoothie mode, this mode combines mixing and pulsing regimes, with the distinction that this perform doesn’t make the most of full blender capability. This permits the blender to be much less noisy, though it might not course of positive substances comparable to seeds and so forth. with the identical degree of effectivity as the traditional Smoothie mode. Handbook pace – signifies guide pace management. Choose the specified pace swiping to the fitting and mix till your most popular consistency has been reached. Usually mixing at half the utmost pace is simply the fitting pace as most pace is required as a way to attain silky clean consistency and mix seeds.
See it in motion
As I demonstrated within the video above, you possibly can management the millo sensible cordless blender two methods. You should use the contact controls on the bottom or you possibly can management it with the millo cell app.
The app requires you to pair the millo through Bluetooth. I had zero points with this and my iPhone 13 Professional Max.
When you don’t want the app to make use of the blender, it does maintain the blender’s firmware up to date (what a loopy world we reside in the place blenders have firmware proper?).
Aside from firmware updates, the app will allow you to see a graph of the bending session and can allow you to management the pace of the blender utilizing a slider change as an alternative of utilizing the contact controls on the blender’s base.
It takes about 2 hours to totally cost the battery utilizing the included 65W USB Sort-C charger. A completely charged battery gives you roughly 10-15 smoothies, relying on the substances since mixing ice and different onerous substances like frozen fruits can drain the battery sooner.
What I like
- Minimal design
- Transportable rechargeable cordless base
- Features a consuming lid
What I’d change
- Decrease the value
- Enable the blender lid module to be dishwasher secure
There’s loads to love concerning the millo sensible cordless blender and some issues that aren’t as likable. The dangerous information is that the millo is extremely costly at $299. Regardless that the millo blender is trendy and distinctive, that’s a LOT of cash to pay for a blender of this kind. There’s additionally the truth that the blender lid must be washed by hand as an alternative of in a dishwasher. Does that make me lazy?
The excellent news is that it blends in addition to different blenders that I’ve examined. It wasn’t capable of fully mix blackberry seeds, however I’ve but to attempt a blender that may. Aside from that, I had no complaints about how nicely it blended my smoothies even when utilizing fully frozen fruits.
So my backside line is… when you’ve got a number of additional money, like trendy-looking home equipment, and wish to make your folks jealous, then the millo sensible cordless blender could possibly be your subsequent favourite countertop smoothie-making buddy.
