Buying Guide

As you can see that the market has a plethora of choices to offer with regard to blenders.

Some of them are designed to serve a certain purpose while the others are multi-purpose in their utility.

In order to understand the purpose and ensure that the blender caters to your need, it is important that you know about the various types of blenders available in the market.

You first need to get yourself acquitted with the different types of mixers that serve various purposes.

Then we can narrow things down to blenders that have been designed specifically for smoothies. Kindly refer to the “Buying guide & FAQ” for a better understanding.

Hand Mixer

These are an electric upgrade of a basic eggbeater. They come with various attachments needed for different types of techniques used to in beating the ingredients together that is mostly used in baking and making desserts.

The most well known brands of a hand mixer in India are:

  • Balzano
  • Nutr-bullet
  • Wonderchef nutri-blend etc

Pros

  • These products are quite lightweight and extremely handy. Since the equipment doesn’t have a cutting blade you don’t have to long press or hold a button down the entire time you beat the ingredients to make the hand mixer work.
  • The attachments can be easily attached and detached and are easy to clean.
  • If you’re a baker, then hand mixers are an investment that you ought to make. These equipments are economical and easy to store compared to the large bench mixers.
  • For whipping items like cream or egg white where the risk of overbeating is very high, hand mixers make the job convenient and let you be in control as you can see at what stage the ingredients are.

Cons

  • Since these mixers don not come with cutting blades, hard and tough ingredients will not come out in a smooth paste but turn coarse.
  • In order to ensure that the end mix does not turn grainy, make sure that the raw ingredients are already chopped in small bits before you add them.
  • Mixing heavy or too dense dough does not farewell with a hand mixer. It may cause the motor to wear out easily or damage the attachment.

Immersion Blender & Stick Blender

These are one of the most popular common types of blenders. They are handheld sticks devices with a handle at one end and a chopping blade on the other.

Immersion blenders and stick blenders are the same products. However, depending upon the brand the power in each of the blenders may vary.

These types of blenders are mostly used to blend hot liquids like soups, badam milk, protein shakes, using powdered milk, or even an instant pudding etc.

Pros

  • As explained earlier, these blenders are often submerged into hot beakers and pots to do the job.
  • Since these blenders are not closed and packed, they do not run the risk of building up steam and pressure that is going to explode in your kitchen and give you burns.
  • They are extremely easy to clean and are also dishwasher safe. In a case the product of your choice is not dishwasher safe, just blend up some  hot water with dishwashing liquid and your immersion blender will come out squeaky clean.

Cons

  • A constant pressure or long press is required the entire time the stick blender is used. This is because the blade is exposed and the requirement of the long press is like a vital safety feature.
  • But it can get quiet annoying and can tire your fingers as it requires a bit of hand strength.
  • While some of the stick blenders can crush ice, it is ideally used to blend relatively soft ingredients like mixing powder or blending soup.
  • But if you are looking to make a seed-free velvety smoothie this type of blender is unlikely to meet your needs and they do leave a bit of texture in the mix.

Single-Serve Blender

Single-serve blenders are also known as bullet blenders. The idea and designing of this type of blender would be credited to the brand NutriBullet blenders.

The Ninja range and Magic Bullet is what popularized this innovation in the market. These blenders come in varying sizing, but as the name suggests most of them have the capacity to make small portions- perhaps a single or double serve drink.

Such blenders are regarded as an innovation among the group of blenders because of the unique way that they work.

The name bullet blender comes from the ‘bullet’ shaped container where you put the ingredients, screw a chopping blade to the top, then turn the bullet thing upside down and latch into the base of the bullet blender.

These blenders are best used to make smoothies by chopping up frozen fruit, ice and nuts to create your favorite drink. They can also be used to make an omelet or pancake batter, baby food.

 

These blenders make puree at the snap of a finger. However, you can really only use single-serve blenders to create mostly liquid recipes rather than dry

Pros

  • Speed! This is the biggest selling point of the product. These blenders can turn chunky bits of ingredients into a fine paste in no time. They are extremely handy and take up little to no space in the kitchen.
  • Another advantage that this product has over the others is that the blade is securely contained inside the bullet container.
  • It is practically impossible to reach the blades and touch the blades while the blender is worker making them one of the best buys not just for all but for young cooks and chefs too!

Cons

  • One cannot vouch for the pulverizing capacity of the different bullet blenders in the market. Some of the products can grind even the tiniest of chia seeds into a fine paste but most of the bullet blenders bear almost no effect on ingredients that are tiny.
  • Another major problem faced by the users of these blenders is the leakage.
  • This is often caused by the blade not being attached firmly to the container. But, if the blade is screwed too tightly the leakage can stop but getting the blade off again becomes extremely difficult.

Portable Blender

This is the most recent innovation in the market. Given their tiny size, these blenders are often confused with the bullet blenders but they are quite different.

These blenders are designed like a tube which is made out of clear glass where, one end screws into the blade base which contains the motor to churn and the other end screws into the lid.

USB Rechargeable Portable Electric Juice Blender - Extsud

 

These blenders are kept very lightweight and small in size so much so that they are smaller than an average hydro flask, making them extremely portable.

One might ask how the motor would run without electricity. The blade/motor unit runs on a battery which is rechargeable so you don’t have to worry about electricity and plug points.

While the advertising will suggest you can make fresh smoothies in your car, it bars logic there but nonetheless it can certainly be carried to the office or the gym.

So your fresh post workout smoothies and protein shakes can be made and hunger pangs at office can be satiated without you having to succumb to unhealthy and packaged food.

These blenders help in making baby food on the go hassle-free! You can just pop one in the baby’s bag and head out. Just by adding a few veggies from your plate of food and a little water to the blender you can make a healthy instant baby food while enjoying your own meal.

Pros

  • Hands down this is the most portable blender in the market which is its biggest selling point. The rechargeable batteries can be run by using a simple USB charger and will not require you to shell out more money to buy another gadget to make this work.
  • Since these blenders are lightweight and self-contained with no cables, you can ensure that no bits of the ingredients get stuck to the sides and top by shaking it at required intervals.

Cons

  • Leakage from the corners is the major complain of this product but these are relatively new to the market, so any common and recurring faults are only just starting to come out.
  • However, as you are not using these in a kitchen leaking is going to be a concern. Make sure both ends are tightened.
  • The convenience of them also creates the risk of leaving utensils in the blender. This only becomes a problem if you turn it on to remix, particularly baby food.

Countertop blender

Perhaps because of the way these blenders look, they are often confused with food-processors. However, these blenders have been specifically created to cater to the needs of fluid intake that is to make your favorite drinks.

The containers capacity is upto almost 2-liters, so countertop blenders would be the best purchase if you are planning to be make drinks for a family or better yet a party!

A point to caution here would be that when using these blenders please do check the temperature of the liquid before pouring it for a whiz.

Most countertop blenders are specifically designed for cold or cool liquids alone and not hot liquids, in a case where hot ingredients are added there is a high chance of the lid not sealing well and popping off due to the pressure built from the steam of the hot ingredients.

Countertop blenders make the best drinks but nonetheless, you can expand your thinking a little, and use it for other purposes as well.

Flavored ice blocks are one of the most sought after summer’s delight! A beautifully blended smoothie can be used to make the same. And for those who like to add a little drama could whiz up endless glasses of cocktails.

Pros

  • These blenders just like their size are mighty and powerful hence they can mix most of things put into it. They usually come with multiple speed settings and also have a pulsing option.
  • This ensures that all the different ingredients added to the container are mixed easily and ensures everything is blended, lump free.
  • It is also super easy to clean the new variants of the countertop blenders. Just a add a few drops of some liquid soap used for washing dishes to a blender full of water and blending for a few seconds, and you will be good to go.

Cons

  • The biggest concern with these blenders is their size. These types of blenders are pretty bulky. If you’re planning to use them regularly it would be a good purchase.
  • But if you’re use of these blenders is minimal and you intend to use it a couple of times in  a monthly or so then storing them in a small kitchen can be quiet annoying as they take a quiet a bit of space.
  • Another silly issue with these blenders is that it ends up accidentally blending foreign objects.
  • Due to its size, most people who use them regularly often forget leaving in a spoon or something while the blender goes on! The noise produced is of course alarming and you also run the risk of damaging blades and the glass as well.
  • This is of course something that can be avoided by being a little alert.

Stand Mixer

Stand mixers are mostly used for mixing cake dough and batter and that’s why they are also known as cake mixers b. They are similar to the hand blenders or hand mixers in their function, but these mixers are far more powerful because the heavy batter and dough needs more power to be worked.

Although most of the people use these mixers to make cake batter, they can be used for other purposes by connecting different attachments that can turn them from a basic mixer into a versatile kitchen tool to do all kinds of mixing.

They come be added blenders, grinders and sometimes even multiple pasta cutting tools.

These mixers often come with innumerable attachments make them perfect for meringues, with no need to stand over the mixer while getting to the right consistency, shine and the beautiful peaks that we all look for.

When talking about dough a standard dough hook can be attached to make a regular bread-dough or heavy cookie dough. When the right mixer is used it becomes a simple task.

Pros

  • The big motor and far more robust build make these blenders a great purchase and even better option for high users that is to mean for commercial purpose.
  • However, it is recommended to ensure that the label is checked before making a purchase to see if it is actually a commercial product or for being used at home, to suit your need.
  • These machines have the best endurance and hence can easily cope with almost anything right from soft cooked pumpkin to roasted nuts for making their butter.

Cons

  • The powerful motor hefty machine comes with a hefty price.
  • Cleaning the mixer could be a herculean task. Although the cleaning instructions could say that a little water with dishwash liquid can do the task but in reality it needs to be scrubbed properly to get it cleaned.[/su_list]

Factors that you need to consider when buying a blender

Working Space

Personal blenders used for making drinks rarely take up any space at all. They are generally short, and small in size; usually about 13 to 16 inches tall.

And the stick/ immersion blenders are super compact hand-held devices that can be stored away in a drawer when not in use.

Blades

A blender doesn’t simply break chunks into the smallest of particles when making juice or chutney but it also converts the vitamins and proteins into a liquid. The quality of blades greatly influences the amount of nutrients that the drink is going to contain.

So, if it is just a salad dressing, salsas, sauces or smoothies that you want to make then going for an X style blade as it is enough to do the job. In order to crush ice into snow, or grind coffee beans a wing style blade is needed.

In case your needs are this varied then it is suggested that you purchase models that come with exchangeable blades that can be replaced as per your needs.

Power

It goes without saying that the blenders with robust motors i.e. higher wattage and more horsepower work quicker and give finer blended results. They are usually built such that they can run for longer duration than the lower-powered blenders. This, however, tends to make them larger and more expensive.

Blenders with those high-powered, efficient motors of 1500 watts and as much as 2-3 horsepower can crush just about anything that is thrown into the jar. It can crush ice into snow, blend nuts into smooth nut butters.

Mid-powered blenders having motors in the range of 1100-watt too can crush ice or grind nuts pretty well. But they would not run for as long as the blenders with higher wattage. They also do a good job at other tasks like making smoothies or pureeing cooked vegetables.

Blenders with motors in the range of 600 watts are perfect for making all sorts of drinks! However it is not recommended for crushing ice or grinding tough foods, so things like slurpees would remain out.

Speed

A lot of models designed specifically for making drinks come with additional presets, which are combinations of predetermined speeds and times. They are designed for tasks such as ice crushing, soup pureeing, or making single serving of smoothies.

On the other hand stick/immersion blenders usually have multiple speeds that can be manually adjusted as they are also used when cooking and not just to make drinks.

Pitcher (Jar)

The pitchers or container where ingredients are added is usually made of glass and plastic.Glass is a relatively cheaper alternative. They are dishwasher-safe and you don’t have to worry about the temperature of the other vessels and water.

However, thin glass shatters even at the slightest mishandling. This makes the use of glass quiet risky. On the other hand, thick glasses are sturdier, but they can get very heavy too!

In order to counter these issues, manufacturers resorted to go with high-end plastics. They are light, safe, and more durable. However, some of the plastic containers are not dishwasher safe and they can also get quite expensive.

BPA Free

BPA is the acronym for bisphenol A. It is a harmful industrial chemical and many manufacturers have used BPA in the process of manufacturing plastics since the 1960s.On continuous and prolonged use, BPA has been associated with various ailments such as increased blood pressure etc.

Hence, it is the need of the hour that people become aware of the harms caused by the use if BPA. As discussed earlier ,most of the manufacturers are opting to make the jars out of plastic and not glass it is imperative to ensure that a complete BPA-free plastics known as eco-friendly plastics are used to make the blenders.

Accessories

Just buying a jar and its motor will never do the job. The ultimate result large;y also depends on the blenders accessories.

A tamper is one of the most widely used piece of tool when using a blender as it can be used for getting those last stubborn bits into the blender blades, and so this is one item that I would highly recommend checking for when you buy a blender since they’re often specific to the model and brand, they come with a ring guard at the top to keep you from plunging the tamper into the blender blades.

An outside purchase might not do the work and perhaps harm the blender itself.

If it is entirely about making smoothies and frozen drinks, try to look out for blenders that come with special set of travel containers as it makes everything so much more travel friendly.

Cleaning Ease

Easy of cleaning comes from the designing of the product. Blenders with a conventional design (with a motor base and a pitcher) can self-clean by the use of some warm water and liquid soap and spin the motor at high.

This process ensures that not just the walls of the container but even the blades are cleaned without you having to try hard to get into the entire nook and corner.

But the thing with personal blenders is that they don’t really support self-cleaning.  They need to be cleaned manually or the jar can be tossed into the dishwasher. A word of caution here would be to ensure that you don’t hurt yourself in an attempt to clean the blades.

Price

A simple equation that can be drawn here would be- higher power = more expensive. Since most of the blenders used for making drinks are either mid-powered or low powered, buying them will not burn a hole in your pocket.

Nonetheless a buyer has an option to make a choice among the various features and depending upon the features and the brand of the product the prices vary roughly between Rs. 2,000/- to Rs. 8,000/-.

There is no single straight jacket formula to pick the best product in the market. Once you consider all the above mentioned factors and match them with your needs, you can pick the product which suits your needs perfectly!
