The Great Blender Review
It’s no secret I’m a fan of the smoothie. Every second picture I post on Instagram is a visual nod to the great, blended drink. Smoothies are a staple of my diet. Green ones, in particular, but I also love a good berry or cacao dessert-type smoothie on occasion. Barely a day goes by that I don’t use my blender, and I even have an e-book with over 80 green smoothie recipes that you will score for free when you sign up for my newsletters. So, it’s no surprise that I’m constantly being asked for advice on which blender to buy.
This blender review is purely my personal opinion, and you may feel differently when you get the chance to try out different machines. But based on my personal experience and research, this is my list of the best blenders on the market.
I love my Vitamix and I don’t know anyone who has used this machine and not become instantly besotted with it. It blends so quick and smooth, making it super easy to whip up smoothies that taste amazing. No fibrous bits! This baby also makes cashew cream and other raw desserts like ice cream and cheesecake. It also has a great cusiony handle I’ve not seen on other blenders.
Cost: Between $850-$1000
Warranty: 7 years
This is an awesome blender as well, and I know people who actually prefer it to the Vitamix. It’s benefits include being slightly cheaper, slightly more quiet, and it comes with a wider based jug, making it easier to scoop out bits of raw dessert that may be stuck to the bottom.
Cost: Between $799-$879
Warranty: 7 years
3. OMNI BLEND
I was sent one of these bad boys recently and I have to say I was pretty impressed. It made a bit more noise than my Vitamix, and it doesn’t have the soft handle, but it’s whiz-power was up there and it produced a super-smooth smoothie. If you don’t want to spend the higher price, but you still want a great blender, this is an awesome option.
Warranty: 3 years
4. TRIBEST PERSONAL BLENDER
This is the first blender we ever bought, and despite its small size, it served us well … until I burnt out the motor attempting to make cacao balls in it. Still, it’s an awesome machine to take with you when you’re travelling, or for just making salad dressings and single-servings of smoothies.
Warranty: 1 year
You may be wondering why I haven’t included the Thermomix on my list and this is purely because I don’t have one and I have never used one. I know many people who are Thermomix devotees though. They are basically an all-in-one machine, and the only downside I’ve heard is that they aren’t as good as the Vitamix at making extremely smooth smoothies.
I hope this post helps you with your blender-deciding process. If you’re trying to justify spending so much on a kitchen appliance, I have to say that it’s a decision I doubt you will regret. A good quality blender makes your time in the kitchen so much easier!
