When I went on holiday I took the Travelmixa® with me. It is so light and easy to carry and I loved being able to use it while I was away. I just packed in among my Packing Cells Big plus is that it is super easy to clean so no messy blender blades that never seem to clean properly and no chance of getting any food left in it. You can also put the flask and lid in the dishwasher but NOT the base! I prefer to just unscrew it all and rinse it off in warm water and let it drip dry.
