The Boss To Go Sport personal blender is designed to make smoothies and other drinks “to go” and also to make small batches of everything from baby food to sauces. It’s basically a mini blender for quick batches, with its own set of powerful blades and two different blender cups, a 23-ounce cup, and a 15-ounce cup. It’s not, however, designed for making soup or anything hot since there are no vents in the blender cups.

You can also use the Breville Boss To Go Sport blender in addition to your full-sized Breville or another blender to make small batches, maybe during the weekday, so you can skip using and then cleaning your full-sized blender to keep it ready for larger batches.

With the addition of the Green Smoothie mode, the Fresh & Furious has 3 automatic blending modes, while the Hemisphere has only two. The Fresh & Furious also have 5 different manual speeds, just like the Hemisphere. The latest version of the Fresh & Furious is also compatible with the Breville Vac Q air vacuum system (sold separately) that is designed to make creamier, tastier smoothies and other blended food and drinks by removing air out of the blender jar before blending.

The biggest difference between these two Breville blender models, however, is the power of the blender motors. The Fresh & Furious is rated at 1,100 watts, the Henipshere only 750. So, the Fresh & Furious has almost 50% more power than the Hemisphere, at least as measured by watts.
