Updated on May 3, 2016

How to Choose the Best Blenders 2016 Under $100

Many people assume that to get a good blender, you need to spend big money for it to have all the functions you need. We are here to tell you different. You may be surprised to learn that there are some blenders on the market today that have the same or similar functions as some of the larger, commercial grade ones.

To save you hunting the shops, and online stores to find them, we have done all the hard work for you. We have found five blenders that all retail for under $100 and have been amazed at the quality. It is wise to firstly have an idea of what you aim to use your blender for before deciding which one to buy. For example do you need the power to chop through chunks of ice or are you aiming to use it mainly for milkshakes? We hope that this review can help steer you in the right direction. Below are some of the best blenders 2016 under $100.

Ninja Kitchen System Pulse

Ninja easily make the top of the list with their economical and powerful ‘Kitchen System Pulse’. This blender consistently rates high with reviewers globally, generally due to how much you can do with it considering its low price. That’s why, it’s considered one of the best blenders 2016 under $100.

Ninja offer their unique Ninja blade technology and 40 ounce processor bowl and other attachments which can power through ice and vegetables as well as kneading dough. If you want a blender to puree food for your weaning baby, Ninja Kitchen System Pulse can easily manage this too.

Overall, it is hard to beat this blender for its versatility and price. Once you own this machine, I can imagine you will never look back. Even if you have the money to afford a higher priced model, you would be hard pressed to find better than a Ninja Kitchen System.

KitchenAid 5-speed Blender

KitchenAid is a trustworthy, go-to brand when it comes to best blenders 2016 under $100. The price tags are usually higher though, so it is good to see one make this list. The stylish KitchenAid 5-speed blender offers a polycarbonate jug, which is dishwasher safe, and a 720 watt motor, which will chop and blend leafy green vegetables as smooth as soft fruits.

For a basic blender, you can always guarantee quality with a KitchenAid and it is good to see a best blender 2016 for under $100. However, if you want more power or functionality, along with the brand, you may need to pay higher and go for one of their better models.

Ninja Master Prep Professional

Retailing at around $60 the Ninja Master Prep Professional is one of the cheapest and best blenders 2016 under $100 on the list. Cheap does not necessarily mean the weakest performer though. As with all Ninja product, the Ninja blade technology makes this blender tough to beat. The functionality of this blender even compares with the much more expensive Vitamix 5200.

The 450 watt motor may not be as powerful as the KitchenAid but the Master Prep Pro blends to a smooth consistency with the help of its unique blade system. In the large jug, the three layers of blades efficiently chop and blend your soup mix or smoothie to perfection. Then the dishwasher safe components can easily be cleaned and tidied away.

Again, consumer reviews tend to favor this Ninja blender. Although not as powerful as other brands, the patented blade system allows for a much lower price tag whilst delivering the same end results. On top of this, Ninja QB1004 Master Drink Mixer’s sleek design and easy to clean components make this blender our best buy.

Oster BVCB07-Z 7-Speed Blender

With its 600 watt motor and 6 cup, glass jug, the Oster BVCB07 is a tough, hard wearing and one of the best blenders 2016. The more traditional jug and stand design would stylishly adorn your kitchen counter-top in between uses.

Although not as powerful as the KitchenAid, the Oster boasts extra stainless steel ice-crushing blades, for those tougher jobs. The large glass jug has also been thermal shock tested. This means that you can pour the hot contents, direct from the pot into the jug, to get a wonderfully smooth and creamy soup, without losing the heat or shattering the glass.

If you need a heavy duty blender that will cope with quick temperature changes and has the power to chop ice, the Oster BVCBO7-Z 7 Speed Blender appears to tick the boxes. At under $100, it is also the most reasonably priced Oster blender you could find.

Cuisinart DLC-10S Pro Classic 7-cup Food Processor

Cuisinart DLC-10Sis the only food processor on the list. The main reason is that you would be hard pressed to find any other food processor, worth mentioning, for under $100. The Cuisinart, however, is a best blender 2016 for its price.

If you want size and versatility, this could be the product for you. Being a food processor, it does all the standard pureeing and mixing that you would expect from a blender. As well as this though it also chops, dices, shreds and minces. Its large 7 cup bowl can also handle cake or cookie mixes or kneading dough.

Compared to the other blenders though, the wider shaped bowl makes it harder to get the mixture smooth quickly. If you want versatility and do not mind that it takes a little longer the Cuisinart DLC-10S Pro Classic 7-cup Food Processor may be for you.

Final Word

If you are shopping for a blender or food processor, there are many different products out there for you to choose from. I’ve also mentioned above the best blenders 2016 under $100. As I said before, the first decision you need to make is what do you need the blender for? If it is for quickly whizzing up power shakes or healthy breakfast smoothies before rushing to work then a Ninja may be the best for you. The Master Prep Professional is not only speedy but it breaks down easy to clean, which could be handy if you are running late to work.

If speed is not important then maybe decide if you need extra power or extra functions. If you think you may need a hardwearing blender then look for extra power, whether it will chop through ice or whether it will withstand extreme high or low temperatures. Extra functions may lead you to look at food processors, like the Cuisinart instead.

Whatever you choose, have fun with your creations. You may be amazed with what you can produce
