Breville Boss To Go Review: Overview

The Breville Boss To Go Sport Blender is manufactured by Breville, a company based in Sydney, Australia. Breville has been manufacturing home appliances, including espresso machines, ovens, microwaves, grills, and food processors, among others since 1932. The Breville Boss To Go is a great blender of choice for smoothies, with creatively designed cups that enable users to make and take their smoothies on the go.


Main Specifications

The Breville Boss To Go was launched in 2016. Right out of the box, the machine’s attention to detail in its design is notable. Some of the main specifications include;

  • Dimensions: 11.5 x 8 x 17.5 inches
  • Capacity: 23-ounce mega tumbler and 15-ounce sport tumbler
  • Blades: Stainless steel
  • Power: 1000 Watts
  • Voltage: 110 – 120 Volts
  • Speed: One speed

Motor Base

The Breville Boss To Go blender comes with a heavy-duty die-cast metal motor base that covers the 1000W motor. While many are skeptical about purchasing a blender with only one-speed setting, this is all you need to accomplish your blending tasks. The simple motor base components are engineered expertly to deliver incredible beverages. Overall, the motor base design is eye-catching and looks great on countertops.


Blade Design

The Breville Boss To Go sport blender features a robust ProKinetix stainless steel blade that provides optimal cutting and processing. The three blades rely on the intense motor to damage ingredients and contents in the cup. It tackles nuts and dried fruits effortlessly.

I also read reviews claiming that these blades are easier to wash by hand. The blades’ positioning is far from the base, making it easy to wash under them. Most blending enthusiasts expect blenders to feature razor-sharp blades for optimal cutting.

What I’ve realized is that sharp blades don’t always assure finer blends. Blunt blades are a good option for crushing, such as ice or frozen fruits when making smoothies. With such, I think sharp blades are not a good choice. Blenders with sharp blades require some shaking when blending frozen items as the blades immediately cut through. That aside, you would have to pay great attention when cleaning the blades.


Cup Design

Probably one of the features that distinguishes the Breville Boss To Go Sport Blender from other personal blenders is the two tumbler designs that come with the machine. Having reviewed several personal blenders, this is the only model that provided cups without threaded rims. The cups include a 23-ounce and 18-ounce blending cups. Both cups are made from BPA-free Tritan Copolyester, which is a gold standard for high-end blenders. The choice of material makes the cups robust, impact-resistant, and dishwasher safe.

Both cups have maximum fill lines with two lids to make them portable. You can fill the cup with your favorite smoothie and drink on the go without doubts. Others who have used these cups attest that the lids are travel-friendly.

The manufacturer recommends immediate washing of the blade and cups if citrus fruits are included in the fruit shake or smoothie. Citrus has harsh effects on the material make, which can shorten the lifespan of these components. As such, it is prudent to wash them immediately after use and use non-citrus detergents.


Easy to Clean

As I have mentioned before, nearly all the components of the Breville Boss To Go blender, except the motor base, are dishwasher safe. The parts include the cups, blade bases, and lids. However, this isn’t the only reason why I think the blender is easy to clean.

Among the reasons is that there are no claims of leaks from this blender. Leaking is a common complaint that most users make against personal blenders. This often occurs due to unexpected overfilling and over-tightening the lid. The Breville Boss To Go seals up properly and serves its blending purpose. If you accidentally have some drips to deal with, wiping with a damp cloth makes it clean. The dishwasher safe components also clean with warm soapy water.

Breville Boss To Go Review: Final Thoughts

If you are looking for a compact and reliable personal blender to make smoothies and blend any other drinks within seconds, I would recommend the Breville Boss To Go sport blender. Despite not being as versatile as other pricey or high-end blenders, it has all the qualities to whip up your daily smoothies.

However, you should avoid overfilling the cup and over-blending to avoid damages. Fortunately, Breville included the self-resetting overload function to cushion the machine from damage. Whether the cup is overloaded or runs for a long time, it triggers the protector function and shuts down the machine. If this happens to your blender, unplug and give it some time, say 30 minutes before using it again. Nevertheless, always watch the number of your ingredients and time when blending to lengthen its lifespan.
