Before you measure out honey or any other sticky substance in your measuring cup, be sure to spray it with some non-stick spray! This will help it slide right out making clean up a breeze (well I should say easier, a breeze would be having someone else do it for you)!

I bought a Magic Bullet a month ago and I use it almost everyday. I use it mostly for making smoothies. I just dump everything in the big cup and it blends everything in like 30 seconds or less. Clean up is easy too..just wash the cup and the blade. I don't think I'd like using a full size blender only cuz I really dislike the cleaning part.
It's great for other stuff as well such as grinding spices, coffee, and chopping onions etc. Only thing I found that I dislike, it's not made for shredding cheese. It will get all clumped up.
When measuring something sticky,like peanut butter, first spray a cooking spray like PAM in the measuring cup and then pour in your ingredient. See how easy it comes out of the cup. You get two benefits 1) you get everything to east that you have coming to you, and 2) it makes for easier cleaning!
