GSI Outdoors Vortex Hand Cranked Blender

Use this blender to crank out delicious shakes during an outdoor adventure. Made from Lexan, the pitcher is virtually indestructible and its exclusive pour-through locking lid design lessens spills.
Q: How many times have you used your Vortex blender during the test period?
A: My family and I have used it 5 times during our camping trips and at home.

Q: What type of meals or drinks did you blend?
A:  We used it to blend breakfast shakes and pancake batter which we made while camping. Also, we crushed some ice to use for our margaritas while we were at home.

Q: Was the Vortex blender easy to use?
A:  It was very easy to use and it made a very nice froth blend, which my son liked. To crush ice, it was best to start on the lower gear setting and then after some initial grinding, I switched over to the higher gear setting.

Q: How easy was it to clean and how would you rate the overall build quality?
A: All I had to do was wipe it, rinse and let it air dry. It is also very well built and I don't think it would break easily. 

Q: Do you believe this is a useful item to take camping and would you recommend it to your fellow campers?
A:  It certainly is a useful item to have and we will be taking it with us on summer camping trips. I recommend it because it's not just an item you take camping, you can also use it while at home.
