Overall, the Uten Multifunctional Blender stands up to its manufacturer’s claims. It’s easy to use, versatile enough to handle everything from baby food to soups and juices, and is generally just well made.

Product Testing & Comparison
Our reviewer used a specific set of guidelines to rank each and every bit of this device to ensure the most accurate testing possible. She examined:
- Ease of Use
- Cleaning & Storage
- Dimensions, Power, Volume, and Material
Now enough of what we want – let’s talk nitty-gritty details.
Uten Multifunctional Blender: Ease of Use
This is arguably the most important section. While the technical details down below are certainly important, they don’t affect how well the blender functions on a day-to-day basis. What does impact that are things like ease of use, versatility, and ease of cleaning and storage. Let’s see what our reviewer had to say about those factors, shall we?

Cleaning & Storage
First up is cleaning. This is an oft-overlooked factor when buying kitchen gadgets, but it’s really quite important. The Uten Multifunctional Blender needs to be easy to disassemble and store, as well as simple to clean. Luckily for you, our reviewer found that to be the case!
It splits apart into two sections – the container and the blades. This makes it super simple to safely clean the blender after use. If you’re a visual person like me, there’s a video up above showing exactly how to do so. The long and the short of it, though, is that the Uten Multifunctional Blender is a breeze to clean. Its small size (shown in the Dimensions, Power, and Material section) also allows it to be stored quite easily when finished.
Executive Summary: The Uten Multifunctional Blender is a simple (but effective) device that breaks into easy-to-clean and simple-to-store parts.
Below, you’ll see a video of the blender in action. In this particular one, we’re making a smoothie – but this guy works equally well with a wide range of foods.
Next up is versatility. What can the Uten Multifunctional Blender do, exactly?
Our reviewer used this for a pretty broad range of uses just to ensure it works well with a wide selection of foods. She blended soup ingredients in order to achieve a cohesive creamy texture, as well as making smoothies and salsas.
When it comes to handling hot food and large batches, this particular blender is useable, though it’s not ideal. With the relatively small capacity and middling power, this blender struggles with foods that aren’t soft. That means that it’s great for blending soup ingredients after they’ve been cooked, but trying to pulse something like potato or squash for a “shred” isn’t really viable.
Where the Uten Multifunctional Blender truly shines is with smoothies. Our reviewer was able to fit enough fruit to make multiple (delicious) smoothies and got them blended quite quickly (~30 seconds). She blended 2 bananas and a combined ~65 assorted berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries) and they fit quite well.
However, she did note that ingredients (cooked or not) that are larger than 1 square inch are often a bit trickier to get fully blended. She also made note of the fact that foods with skin such as apples or grapes often end up with bits of skin left unblended.
Executive Summary: Our reviewer found that the Uten Multifunctional Blender is quite versatile, able to handle everything from soup ingredients to smoothies with ease. However, it struggles with hard and uncooked foods, as well as those with skin (such as apples or grapes).
And next up is use – specifically, how easy to use and reliable is it? Our reviewer conducted a number of tests to ensure that it can handle a number of tasks consistently. And we’ve got good news – the Uten Multifunctional Blender is fantastic and simple to use.
Perhaps one of the most important questions you need to ask with any blender is how stable it is, and how well designed it is. While we get into this a bit more in the Dimensions, Power, Volume, and Material section, the long and short of it is simple. This blender handled everything our reviewer threw at it without any spillage or tipping while running – and that’s without being held in place.
Our reviewer noted that the blending quality on this is good enough to blend food for weaning (~6 months) babies. While it’ll take a bit longer than a smoothie would, you’ll be able to get a smooth consistency. She did note that it doesn’t handle grape or apple skins very well, though.
Additionally, the design of the blender makes it quite easy to use. Drop food in the hole, push it with the pushing tool, and turn it on. You can use any of three settings – low, high, and pulse, each operating quite well. And the clearly-marked volume indicators make it super simple to measure out your food for specific recipes – a nice little bonus that adds to ease of use.
Executive Summary: Our reviewer found that the Uten Multifunctional blender was quite intuitively designed. This makes it easy to use, mess-free and hassle-free to clean, as well as just an all-around quality product.
Uten Multifunctional Blender: Technical
And now we get to the nitty-gritty, definitely super interesting section that’s everyone’s favourite – technical details and features. While it may not be a page-turner, this is important stuff. It’ll affect the longevity of this particular blender, where and how you store it, and inform on the actual power it has. Let’s get right into it.
Dimensions, Power, Volume, and Material
Now it’s onto the truly number-based information. This section, while brief, is quite important – so read carefully.
What are the actual specs of the Uten Multifunctional Blender?
- Dimensions (L x H x D): 6 x 13.2 x 5.5 inches
- Volume: 1 litre
- Power: 220 watts
- Material: Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (body) and stainless steel (blades)
Our reviewer noted that the blender’s body and actual vessel are both quite sturdy, though the need for a pushing tool (included) does require you to hold it. However, it doesn’t wobble or find itself off-balance, so it’s quite simple to use.
The volume allows a reasonable amount (roughly 1 litre) of liquid and solids to be blended without mess or issue, as well. And as for storage, the blender is small enough that it can be stored rather easily.
Executive Summary: Our reviewer found that the Uten Multifunctional Blender is compact, has a decent volume, and is powerful enough to handle most jobs. It’s made from sturdy materials and remains on balance, rendering its use quite simple thanks to a quality design.
This is a simple (but quite effective) blender. As such, the Uten Multifunctional Blender is rather basic in terms of special features, but we felt it was important to note a couple:
- Clearly marked volume indicators
- 3 power settings
The first feature is rather self-explanatory, but the second and third require just a bit more clarification. There are three settings: low, high, and pulse. The first is ideally suited to smoothies with softer ingredients like bananas and berries. The second is better for tougher jobs and things like ice or juicing, and the final is best for getting a perfect consistency and making adjustments as needed.
As for tools, this blender comes with several:
- Blending cup
- Pressing tool
- 2 bottles
- 3 types of cover (for different tasks and cups)
- Grinding attachment
- Juicing attachment
These allow the blender to do everything from juice fruit to grind spices and ice, as well as the obvious blending. And the pressing tool just makes it easier to press down your ingredients into the blades, all while keeping your hands out of harm’s way.
Executive Summary: Our reviewer was quite a fan of the Uten Multifunctional Blender’s small suite of attachments and extras. While none of them is earth-shatteringly intuitive, they all do their job quite well and make use just that much easier.
Our reviewer was quite a fan of this bad boy – in fact, she still has it! While it certainly has its shortcomings, they’re all quite minor. And for the surprisingly low asking price, the Uten Multifunctional Blender is a clear home run for us at DreamyHome.
