Finding The Best Blender for You

Discover the difference in your kitchen when you find the blender that's best for you. These small countertop electrics are essential in every home. They're used for everything from smoothies to rum runners to smooth vegetable soups. If you get one that's powerful enough, you can use it as a cross-over appliance with your food processor to make hummus or other soft and creamy dips or powdered concoctions as ingredients or toppings.

How A Blender Improves Your Life

Blenders make life better in a number of ways, so it's worth the time and investment to select one that you know you'll use every day--because when you have a good blender, you do use it every day.

  • A blender can be used to make breakfast smoothies or protein shakes. Some people even use one like the Vitamix blender to make juice-like beverages blends with thicker or pulpy fruits and vegetables.
  • If you're always on the go, a blender can be a lifesaver. Mix up a healthy breakfast, take a workout formula to the gym with you or make sure you have some nutrition on a day trip or while running errands for the afternoon.
  • Since it's only one pitcher, cleaning is pretty easy. While juicers often have many parts to them, your blender has a pitcher and lid to wash, plus a base to wipe down.

What To Look for in a Blender

Explore the features of high-quality blenders to pick the one that's right for you. From speed to noise to volume, there are a few things to consider.

  • Make sure the pitcher of your blender has the right amount of space for everything to do with it. The side of the pitcher shows volume marks to let you know how much liquid you've poured or created. A Breville blender, for instance, has a large pitcher.
  • Select a blender that's quiet, so you can use it early in the morning without disturbing anyone still asleep or during the day without interrupting conversations, music or the flow of your thoughts. A KitchenAid blender or other similar style can blend without all the noise.
  • Look for something beautiful you'll love displaying on your countertop. Many modern blenders are sleek and compact with lots of glass and silvertone finishes. They are versatile and handsome and match almost any kitchen.
  • For something with a little more creative flair, look at the Smeg blender. It's a collaboration with Dolce & Gabbana that incorporates bright colors and mosaic-inspired design.

Enjoy the process of selecting your blender. With so many excellent ones available, you can definitely find the best one for you.
