There are tons of options when buying a new blender. From the lowest range of $20 to the high end price of $500, it's hard to determine what's the best blender that would fit your needs.
In this guide, I'll show you how to pick the blender that's right on the budget, perfect for your needs, and that won't bore a hole in your pocket.
Let's get started.
Compare the different types of blenders.
Not all blenders are made the same. These are the 4 types of blenders that are available on the market today.
1. The High Performance Blenders - These are the top-of-the-line, high efficiency blenders that costs around $300-$700 each. They usually come with 7-8 years warranty, which helps with the costs, considering that you're probably spending less than $100 each year for these blenders. Most of these high performance blenders can create hot soups because of their high-speed motors.
They can also effortlessly crush ice because of the sharp blades and high-powered motors.
Two of the biggest brands in this level are the Vitamix and the Blendtec machines.
2. The Conventional Blenders - These blenders are less expensive and thus less powerful than the high performance blenders. Though they can do the job well, sometimes there are chunks of fruits,veggies and ice on the drinks created. If you don't mind these chunks and the smoothness of drinks created, then this is a great blender.
3. Personal blenders - This is a new type of blender that is quickly becoming a top favorite. It's because it's easy to use, it's efficient, and does the job well. And for the price (usually less than $150), a lot of people are finding out that it's a great deal.
The Nutribullet machines and the Nutri Ninja are both machines that fall into this category.
4. The Immersion Type - This is really not a blender, but sort of like a handheld blender that you submerge directly into your drink and allow it to mix through a centrifugal motion. Since it's a handheld device, it really can't crush ice.
The next thing that you'll want to know are the features of the machine.
Do you really need that auto-turn off switch after paying for a couple of dollars?
Do you need an extra cup when creating your drinks?
These are just some of the questions that you'll want to ask.
And last but not the least, ask yourself about storage.
Do you want to store that bulky blender on your kitchen countertop?
Do you want something smaller like the Nutribullet or Nutri Ninja?
Again, these are some of the questions that you'll want to ask if you're interested in getting the best blender to fit your needs.
