Choosing A New Blender

If your thinking about shopping for a new blender or think you may be in the market to buy a new blender sometime soon. This article should prove to be helpful to you.

So I decided to write an article that will help you choose the best blender possible, at an affordable price.

2. KitchenAid KSB560

If your looking for a top of the line blender that still is highly recognized, but comes at a more affordable price - look no further than the KitchenAid KSB560. I personally decided to buy this model myself because it was more within my budget range, and I absolutely love it. Very durable, not that loud, very powerful and easy to clean. This powerful countertop blender features 5 speed settings and pulse and is ideal for smoothies, salsas, frozen treats, cocktail mixing, and soups. It does a great job of blending up ice and whole fruits and vegetables that you feed into the glass. It has an automatic crush ice option, its dishwasher safe and it has many other features and technologies that make it unique.

This Blender is both affordable and professional grade and runs with a price tag of about $150.00.

3. Cuisinart CBT1000

Yet another great countertop blender that Cuisinart has created. This blender is very stylish, and I really admired its looks, and I can honestly say I might have chose this blender over the Kitchenaid blender if I had the money at the time. This blender has a 64 ounce BPA jar and a 1.3 horsepower engine running at 1000 watts. It has backlit buttons, standby mode, and a count-up timer. Has programmed smoothie, ice crush and pulse functions along with high and low speeds. Includes a Die Cast metal housing for added durability.

Upon researching this blender, it got really good reviews. I don't own it personally but this is indeed one of the best countertop blenders on the market. This blender will run around $200.00.
