Thanks to the blender pitcher you can use to mix in and drink from, you won't have a lot of dishes with the Magic Bullet 11-piece Silver. When you're done mixing, you can remove the knives and place a drinking ring or to-go lid on the pitcher so you can drink from it. Thanks to the different pitcher sizes and the different lids, you'll have the right combination for every preparation. This way, you can make a smoothie for 2 people in the large pitcher and a dip in the small one. You can clean the separate parts in the dishwasher. Except for the knives, you'll have to wash those by hand.
