A blender is electric appliance and the term usually referred to blending, mixing, and liquidizing foods. A counter blender is the model machine for whipping up sumptuous shakes, sauces, smoothies and more. You will want your blender to tame the most difficult of foods, processing anything from ice to hard fruits and vegetables. Blender jugs are completed with stainless steel blades which connect to your powerful motor below. Then the final decisions are yours, size of jug, glass or plastic and which beloved colour? If you are a blending enthusiast have a look at the motor size when making your decision and if there are any additional jugs or attachements that may come with the blender.
Here are a few points to keep in mind when choosing your blender
Blade strength, speed of blitzing. The jug: How heavy and durable was the jug? Was it shatter-resistant? Plastic or glass? If plastic, was it BPA-free?
Safety: Does it come with a safety lock? How tightly does the lid fit?
Functions: How many speed settings? On top of blending, are there any other functions such as pulse, crushing ice etc? Any pre-set functions to make things such as soups and smoothies? Auto-clean?
Design and aesthetic: Is it well designed or bulky? How much space does it take up on the counter? Does it justify its size? Does it pack away easily in a cupboard?
