  • Excerpt: I can only give the Rival 5-Speed Blender a 7 out of 10. It does good when trying to make a milkshake or something very simple, but other than that don't try to use it for more complex things.Blending PowerIt does good with very simple soft items such as icecream, milk, yogurt and things like this.

Decent low end blender

  • Excerpt: I bought this while looking for a cheap blender. I don't use my blender often, so I really saw no reason to splurge on an expensive one. I just wanted something that would make basic smoothies. This blender gets the job done.

  • Excerpt: Purchased this blender for about $12 at Walmart. I was a little skeptical cause it was so cheap, but saw the Rival name and figured it would be fine...WRONG! Was only used about 5 times before it caught a night flight to the dumpster.

  • Excerpt: This thing is awful! It's loud, it gets stuck on almost anything I put in it including fruit for a smoothie! It can handle about a handful at a time, otherwise everything on the bottom near the blade gets pulverized and then top ingredients stay how they were.

  • Excerpt: I have recently used this blender to make soup for my family and it works quickly. Unfortunately, it blends really loud, so it is hard to hear anybody else. I chopped up purple onions, red, yellow, and green bell peppers, and I place them in a bowl and I blend them in groups of four (because...

  • Excerpt: I bought this thing at Wal Mart for a song. I'm sure I bought it because it was the cheapest thing around, and for that, I guess they deserve some credit.But, like with nearly everything else in the world, you get what you pay for. I learned that some time later in the middle of a cooking project.

Too Cheap For My Needs

  • Excerpt: It may be cheap but not worth the waste of money. Invest in a better one that cost more than $15.00. Doesn't fulfill protein shake needs in our family. Most things I want to make require me to hand chop and puree. Buy a Magic Bullet instead!!

Rival Blender - from one mess to another.

  • Excerpt: The Rival blender I bought had big shoes to fill, I suppose. I received a nice mid-grade Oster as a wedding gift many moons ago and it worked well until just this summer when a gear slipped.

Why buy the $40 blender when you can have this one?

  • Excerpt: The two things you're supposed to get duplicates of at your wedding are blenders and toasters. Six ago, when my husband and I got married, I was shocked to find we'd received neither. It was a long wait, but I finally purchased my first blender three days ago. It was of course, this Rival blender.
