I had forgotten about that! Thank you for reminding me.

I need to make several small things and wasn't looking forward to rinsing/washing between blendings.

I just checked, and my old Oster blender will fit a mason jar. I never would have thought to try this. Thanks!!

Fabulous tip! I never knew this and sure enough, my dusty blender fits a mason jar opening. It might get used a bit more now ;)

Our shower gift blender (Hamilton Beach?) not only came with the standard glass pitcher, but also had two plastic containers/lids for storing a finished blend. One was roughly mason jar sized, the other probably would have held a good amount (36? 42?) ounces of something - something like a smoothie before smoothies were cool.
