Best Blenders 2016

Updated on November 8, 2015

To some owners blenders aren't a very important part of their lives, others rely heavily on their blender and would be lost in the kitchen without it. A blender can make preparing food more efficient, thereby saving time in the kitchen.

Once I started using a blender, I found myself using it more and more often, both in the kitchen and to make drinks. Buying a blender sounds simple, but with so many different types and functions out there, finding one that meets your needs can be a little tricky.

To help you find the best blender for your needs I have shortly reviewed a range of blenders from the commercial blender (Vitamix) to my budget pick (Black & Decker).

Vitamix 1710 Professional Series 500

The Vitamix 1710 is an impressive machine, with enough horse power to blend up some delicious smoothies, soups, sauces and more. The 64-Ounce Jar is big enough to make large sauces. The Vitamix is much more quiet than your average blending machine. It also has an unique pulse system, which moves the contents in such a manner that everything gets chopped, crushed or blended. The laser curt stainless steel blades chop through ice in seconds. The sleek design is flawless, with ‘fingerprint proof’ stainless steel, a spill proof lid as well as other removable lids. The additional 500-page recipe book is a great start for new blender users. This blender is suitable for commercial and home use.

Blendtec TB-631-20 1560-Watt Total Blender

Blendtec 1560 Watt Total Blender is a great choice for any household, this blender makes just about anything. From dry foods, like coffee blending, to tougher creations like bread dough. It will whizz, chop and blend its way through anything. With the trademarked Smart-Touch Technology it makes blending easier. This blender is likely to last long especially due to its reliable 1560 Watt engine. Just one warning, this blender is loud. Early morning smoothie making might not be appreciated by the neighbors, nor will late night sauces to go with your meal. Overall it is impressive and backed by Blendtec's reliability and standards in manufacturing you cant go wrong with the TB-631-20.

Oster BVSB07-Z Counterforms 2-In-1

As a kitchen brand Oster is known for delivering high quality products at very reasonable prices.

The Oster BVSB07-Z  is a one touch operation device with variable pulses. This means clean, fuss free smoothie making. The generally quiet machine gets a little louder when blending ice.

The results with this machine is generally good. The sleek lumi-art leaves no fingerprints and the blue-lit controls make it easy to see. The 60 ounce jar is perfect for salsas, soups or large quantity blending. A handy additional blade for milk shakes is excellent. It may not have all the extra functions that some premium blenders have but all in all it is a sturdy machine.

Oster BPCT02-BA0-000 6-Cup Glass Jar 2-Speed Beehive Blender

This all metal drive smoothie is fully functional with switch controls and 600 Watts of power. You can expect longevity with this traditionally designed blender. The all-metal drive, means optimum performance year after year. What makes this blender noteworthy is that it handles extreme changes in temperature well.

It is also dishwasher friendly something not all benders are. There are quite a few pros to this blender. The limited 2 modes might annoy some users. However for the price, it does the job, and it does it well.

KitchenAid KHB100OB Hand Blender, Onyx Black KitchenAid KHB100OB Hand Blender

The Kitchen Aid KHB100OB hand blender comes with a one-year warranty. It Measures 17 by 3 by 6 inches; with a handy 9 speed controls, ensuring control of the device during use. Easy to clean, the immersion blender is reliable as it is usable. The heavy 2-ounce machine can be a bit cumbersome to move around the kitchen and the plastic blades are questionable in terms of longevity. I’m sure blade replacements are available. It also does not handle heavier, denser foods and the fuse may blow due to overload.

The KitchenAid is a good option for your more basic blending.

Black & Decker BL10450HB Crush Master

When it comes to Black & Deckers kitchen appliances, they tend to target the bottom of the market, but their products are still functional.

The Black & Decker Crush Master 10-Speed Blender has a 450 Watt motor and comes with stainless steel tiered blades. This stylish blender performs all the functions you would expect from a basic blender and is poweful enough to crush ice.

There is a fantastic motor over heat protection system, which gives the item durability and the 2-year warranty shows it is a good product. Something this has, that the other blenders don’t is the safety interlock system, heat resistant glass and a fast clean button. Besides from being easy-to-clean the design is made for optimum safety and clean features. Being a more ‘domestic’ blender it is not advised for professional or heavy-duty use.
