During the tests, the La Reveuse performed well in producing smooth and nutrient-rich drinks, especially green smoothies and frozen fruit smoothies. It was able to liquify oatmeal and produce a well-balanced smoothie in a relatively short amount of time too. However, it was not able to crush ice cubes efficiently due to its relatively weak motor and blade assembly.

The iCucina and its 300-watt motor was unable to perform well in other tests compared to the La Reveuse, although both blenders struggled to crush ice or to pulverize raw nuts and dried fruits. With all of their shared weaknesses we recommend the La Reveuse over the iCucina for overall efficiency. Still, the iCucina is not a bad choice at all when it comes to processing fresh plant-based ingredients.

Pros & Cons

  • Extra blending cup and twist-on travel lid make this blender perfect for those who are always on the go.
  • It boasts a consistent and dependable performance. 
  • The motor doesn’t struggle much to handle frozen fruits. 
  •  User-friendly design allows for easy control and operation.
  • It’s good for simple plant-based blends.
  • Built quality is mediocre but fine for the price.
  • Simple design allows for straightforward use, cleaning, and storage. 
  • It stands stably, rather than jumping around, while working.
  • The narrow design makes the blending cup tricky to clean. 
  • The blending cup's small opening makes it quite messy to add food, especially powders.
  • The lack of versatility. 
  • Short power cord.
