European Business: What is the idea behind the BlendJet?
Ryan Pamplin: We invented the portable blender because we wanted to make it easy to make healthy eating choices on the go. We were tired of chunks in our protein shakes at the gym, and hated paying for overpriced smoothies. I used to run a smoothie recipe video website and knew from the community that our users often watched our videos while away from their blenders, and I've been dreaming about a portable blender ever since.
European Business: The BlendJet is a solution on the go. How long does the battery last and how often do you have to recharge it?
Ryan Pamplin: BlendJet only needs one hour of charging time with any USB port for up to 12 blends. This allows you to use the blender on-the-go without having to worry about being tethered to a cord or an outlet.
European Business: What is the capacity and performance of the BlendJet?
Ryan Pamplin: BlendJet holds 12 oz or 355 ml. It's powerful enough to blend ice, fruit, vegetables, and satisfy all of your blending needs wherever you are.
"BlendJet is great for everyone, but is especially popular with women who want to live healthy lifestyles." Ryan Pamplin
European Business: How do you clean the blender?
Ryan Pamplin: BlendJet cleans itself! After you're done blending, simply add a drop of soap, water, and turn on the blender.
European Business: Who is your target audience?
Ryan Pamplin: BlendJet is great for everyone, but is especially popular with women who want to live healthy lifestyles. A huge portion of our sales come from referrals from our 400,000+ happy customers in 195 countries.
European Business: Which ingredients can be mixed in the blender?
Ryan Pamplin: You can use a variety of ingredients in BlendJet to make smoothies, protein shakes, milkshakes, margaritas, baby food, guacamole, salsa, salad dressing, soup, or whatever else you'd like to blend.
European Business: What is your tip for the perfect smoothie?
Ryan Pamplin: Start with a good amount of liquid, add in your ingredients, start blending upside down, and flip over your BlendJet to crush right through your ingredients at max RPM.
My favorite recipe is for a Blueberry Banana Smoothie. I start with 2/3 jar of almond milk, 1/2 banana, a handful of blueberries, a spoonful of maple syrup, and my secret superpower ingredient: turmeric. It's addictive.
