Blending Bowls with SELF-DETECT™ is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 237.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally nut butters and emulsions aren't annoying When I first got my Vitamix with the 64 oz container, I made various nut butters a few times and while they aren't hard to make, getting them out was the worst and it felt so much was wasted under the blades. I got the bowls (and the under-blade scraper) so it finally feels like making fresh nut butter is no long more trouble than it's worth. The self-detect can be a bit of a bother. I have had ok luck in lining up the arrows on the cup and the base before threading and try to end with the arrows lined up after threading the base on. Sometimes, if I fail a couple of times, I have to unplug the blender base before it will read ANY container. I am using these with the V1200.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought the 20oz cups and these jars at the same time. I find both are a bit difficult to mount on the base. I have to move them around to get the gear to fit and self detect. I find the pulse button does not respond well as I have to press a few times to get it to come on. I wanted to cut seasoning and it just did not come out like I hoped. Regarding the jars, I think they need to be 32oz as they don't seem to fit much in it. The grooves in the cup itself seem to take a lot of room. The only thing positive I have is that they do a great job blending eggs for my omelets. I saw the reviews before I purchased both items, but wanted to try for myself. I hope Vitamix listens to the reviews and make some adjustments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful I adore these little cups. The longer I have them the more useful I find them. But there biggest winners for me are coffee grinding (yes, I know coffee purists will find that abominable, but it works fine for me), salad dressings, spreads, and the biggest wonder-scrambled eggs/omelets. 2 tablespoons of salted butter, 3 large eggs, salt/pepper/garlic powder to taste, splash of heavy cream or half and half, and a quick whir in there blender and I've got perfect incorporated egg batter ready for coming. Personally I prefer sous vide for the cook but it's great no matter how you do it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Trick To Using Them - On Base Then Turn There is a trick to this but it's good. The key for this is to put the items in the bowl, then secure it on and place on base. Once you place it on the base you might notice, the numbers don't light up. Twist the bowl (clear part) to make it tighter as it's on the base. You will then see the numbers light up. This was the kicker and issue for me. These are cool to use if you follow what I said. I realized it's not what I would have thought it would be but i like it a lot. I wanted this mostly to use for almond butter but instead I use it to store almond butter i make in the other jar. The second one I use a lot to make guac and things like that. It's handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Bowl of Fun I bought my Vitamix 6 months ago and used it a few times, but then I bought some more bowls. And I use it all the time to grind a cup of Quinoa for making crackers, making my nighttime peach/coconut cream desert. It's so easy and I don't have to clean the big container. That might make me seem lazy, it's only that I like easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love having the extra bowls! I use this size blending bowl for many things,such as making a small batch of dressing or chopping garlic and onions. So having an extra blending bowl is helpful since one might be in the refrigerator with something in it already. All I need to do is attach another bowl to the blade and ready to go.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from too small. The blades barely affected the stuff Too small. Yet the blades barely affected the stuff that needed blending or even chopping. I was better off using the regular vitamix blender.
