1. A goblet device configured for use with a motorized base as a food mixer, the device comprising:

  • a) a container wall havingan upper edge forming an opening which defines an open upper end of the container wall, andhaving a lower opening adapted for horizontal coupling to a mixing assembly,said container wall having a longitudinal axis substantially centered within said container wall, and having a plane defined by said open upper end of the container wall;

    b) a mixing assembly that comprisesa base cap to close said lower opening of the container wall,said base cap having a lower horizontal edge,said lower horizontal edge being adapted for horizontal placement on the motorized base, andsaid base cap being removably couplable to the container wall so that the mixing assembly can be removed for cleaning,a plurality of blades disposable within the container wall so as to be centered near the bottom of the container wall when the mixing assembly is coupled to said lower opening of the container wall,said plurality of blades being spaced away from the sides of the container wall and mounted about a single rotational axis; and

    c) wherein the container wall and the mixing assembly are angled relative to one another in that the plane defined by said open upper end of the container wall is not perpendicular relative to the rotational axis of the mixing assembly so as to form an off-axis configuration resulting in more efficient mixing action.
