Blenders are an essential kitchen appliance. They can be used for a plethora of tasks, such as making smoothies, soups, sauces, and more. With so many different models on the market, it can be hard to know which one to choose.
This is where this hub comes in. I've compiled a list of the three best blenders currently on the market. Keep reading to find out which one is right for you!
Best Overall: Vitamix 5200 Blender Professional-Grade
Now Vitamix is a name that you probably already know. They've been around for years and are one of the most trusted brands in the business. The Vitamix 5200 Blender is one of their latest models and it definitely lives up to the hype.
After testing over a dozen different models, I can say with confidence that the Vitamix 5200 is the best blender on the market, and for good reasons. For one thing, it comes with a powerful 2 -horsepower motor that can easily handle even the most stubborn ingredients. This thing can pulverize ice without breaking a sweat and it can also make hot soup from scratch in under 10 minutes. I've used it to make smoothies, soups, sauces, and even ice cream, and it always performs flawlessly.
Another thing to love about this blender is its 10-speed settings. This gives you a lot of control over how finely or roughly your ingredients are blended. For example, you can use a lower setting for softer ingredients like bananas and a higher setting for harder ingredients like ice. The 5200 also comes with a pulse function that's great for chopping veggies or nuts. This thing is also very easy to clean. Just add some water and soap to the blender and let it run on high for a minute or two. The self-cleaning cycle will do the rest.
And lastly, this blender comes with a 64-ounce container, which is the perfect size for large batches. If you have a smaller family or you like to make single servings, there's also a 32-ounce container available.
Vitamix 5200: What are the downsides?
Of course, no product is perfect and the Vitamix 5200 does have a few minor drawbacks. For one thing, it's a bit on the expensive side, retailing for around $450. However, I believe that it's worth every penny. After all, you're getting a top-of-the-line product that will last you for years to come.
Another thing to keep in mind is that this blender is large and heavy. It weighs around 10 pounds and it has a footprint of 17 by 8 inches. So, if you have limited counter space or you plan on traveling with your blender, the 5200 might not be the best option for you.
All things considered, the Vitamix 5200 is the best blender on the market. It's powerful, durable, easy to use, and clean, and it comes with a generous 64-ounce container. If you're looking for the best of the best, this is the blender for you.
Best Blender for Smoothies: Cleanblend Blender
The Cleanblend Blender is a great option for anyone looking for a powerful blender that's specifically designed for making smoothies. This thing comes with a 3-horsepower motor, which is one of the most powerful motors you'll find in a countertop blender. And it has no problem pulverizing even the toughest ingredients, such as ice, frozen fruits, and leafy greens.
I also love that this blender comes with a variable speed dial. This gives you a lot of control over how finely your ingredients are blended. For example, you can use a lower setting for softer ingredients like bananas and a higher setting for harder ingredients like ice.
The Cleanblend also comes with an 8-cup capacity, which is perfect for large batches. And if you're not looking to make a lot of smoothies at once, the blender comes with a handy little measuring guide that tells you how much liquid you need to add for 2, 4, or 6 cups.
Finally, I really appreciate that this blender has a self-cleaning mode. Just add some water and soap to the blender and let it run for a minute or two and it'll clean itself. This is a great feature if you're someone who hates cleaning appliances.
Cleanblend: What are the downsides?
The only downside I can think of for the Cleanblend blender is that it's not the most attractive appliance on the market. It's all black and very boxy-looking. But if you're more concerned with function over form, then this shouldn't be a deal-breaker.
I would also caution against blending hot liquids in this blender. I've read a few reports of the blender leaking if you try to blend hot soup or something similar. So, if you're looking for a blender that can double as a food processor, you might want to look elsewhere.
So all things considered, the Cleanblend is a great option for anyone who's looking for a powerful blender that's specifically designed for making smoothies. It comes with a lot of great features, such as a self-cleaning mode and a variable speed dial, and it does an excellent job of pulverizing even the toughest ingredients.
Best Budget Blender: KitchenAid K150
Not many people can justify spending $200 or more on a blender, and that's where the KitchenAid K150 comes in. It's our budget pick because it offers similar performance as some of the more expensive models, but it costs less than half as much.
While the K150 has a weaker 0.9 HP 650-watt motor, it can still handle most tasks with ease. It comes with a 48-ounce jar, which is large enough for most families. The blender also has six pre-programmed settings: ice crush, smoothie, frozen drink, soup, puree, and chop.
This blender is also one of the easiest to use. The control panel is straightforward, and the blender comes with a helpful guide that walks you through each setting. There's no self-cleaning function, but all of its parts (except the base) are dishwasher-safe so that's not really a deal-breaker.
KitchenAid K150: What are the downsides?
Of course, as a budget pick, the KitchenAid K150 doesn't come with all the bells and whistles of some of the more expensive models. For one thing, you don't have as many settings as some of the other models on our list. It has six pre-programmed settings, which is enough for most people, but if you're looking for more options, you'll want to keep looking.
The other downside of the K150 is that it's not as durable as some of the other models on our list. It has a plastic jar and base, which makes it lighter and less sturdy than some of the other models. This isn't necessarily a bad thing – it just means that you need to be a bit more careful with it.
If you're looking for a budget-friendly blender that can still handle most tasks, the KitchenAid K150 is a great option. It's easy to use and comes with enough settings for most people. Just keep in mind that it's not as durable as some of the other models on our list.
So there you have it - our roundup of the best blenders on the market. As you may have already realized, there's no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to finding the best blender. It really depends on your needs and preferences.
I hope that this hub has helped you narrow down your options and find the best blender for your needs. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to shoot me a message and help keep this hub up-to-date. Thanks for reading!
