Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is the difference between immersion and tabletop blenders?
AAn immersion blender is a stand-alone blending unit that is lowered directly into mixes (such as soups) to blend them. Tabletop blenders have their own bowl and a fixed blending unit attached.
QWhat is a 'pulse function'?
APulse turns the blender on for very short periods at full power, allowing you to make the finishing touches to mixes, or blend stubborn parts of a mixture.
QWhat is a 'chopper' attachment?
AA chopper attachment consists of a small jar, into which you place fresh herbs and leaves. The blender is attached to the jar, and chops the herbs into small pieces for cooking.

Blender Buying Guide

Blenders are kitchen appliances which use high-speed rotating blades to cut and puree foods into liquids. They can be used in both food prep (i.e - reducing tomatoes to a puree for sauce) or for making smoothies and juices from fruits and vegetables.

There are two main types of blenders on the market - handheld/immersion and tabletop:

Handheld/immersion blenders: these appliances consist of a ‘wand’ with blades on one end, which is held and lowered directly into the food to be blended (hence the name 'immersion blender', since they are immersed in the food). Because they don’t have a bowl, they are far smaller and easier to store, and are usually cheaper. However, because they are lowered directly into the ingredients, they lack the splash guards of tabletop blenders. Therefore greater care has to be taken when using them, so you don’t end up covering your kitchen in tomato sauce! Because they are smaller and lack several safety features (such as guards) they tend to be less powerful than tabletop models.

Tabletop blenders: unlike handheld models, tabletop blenders have their own separate bowl into which the ingredients are poured and blended. They have a splash guard that is placed over the top to prevent accidents and stop liquid being fired everywhere. These models of blenders tend to be more powerful and capable of reducing harder ingredients to liquid, but come at a cost: tabletop blenders take up more room than their handheld brethren, and are often more expensive. They also generate more cleaning, since the bowl and the blades will have to be cleaned every time its used.

Capacity

This attribute only applies to tabletop blenders, but is an important consideration - the bowl capacity will determine how much food/liquid can be blended at one time. Blended capacities vary considerably - some models have large bowls/jugs that can hold several litres of liquid at a time, while others can only hold a single serving of liquid - enough for a single smoothie or juice, but impractical for larger kitchen use. Which brings us to...

Juicers/Smoothie Makers/Nutribullets

Juicers, smoothie makers and Nutribullets are a special subset of blenders that specialise in blending fruit and veg into single-serving liquids. They are extremely good for this purpose, often coming bundled with a special cup to make transferring/transporting the smoothies as easy as possible. Some even use the cup itself as the blending jug, blending the ingredients directly into the cup for efficiency.

While they excel in this specific function, customers should be wary of buying them for larger kitchen use - because of their single-serving capacity, they wouldn’t be efficient when cooking for families, and you may end up having to blend ingredients in batches. Moreover, because the are generally made to blend soft fruit and veg, the power level and blades are not as powerful as less specialised models. This means that using a smoothie maker for general kitchen use may end up breaking the blades or overtaxing the motor, leading to a broken appliance.

Lastly, because these appliances (especially Nutribullets) are aimed at the healthy eating and exercise crowd, they tend to be more expensive than standard blenders, even though they may have a smaller capacity or fewer features. So when choosing a blender, think carefully what you’re going to use it for, and maybe look towards a standard kitchen blender if you intend to make anything apart from smoothies and juices.

Blenders and mixers tend to be used interchangably as names for kitchen appliances used for reducing food and ingredients, but blenders tend to be faster and more powerful, focussed on reducing to pure liquid rather than creating an even mix. This is what makes them good for soups or smoothies

Power Level

All our blenders have a power rating, measured in Watts (W). The higher the power level, the more efficient the appliances will be at blending. This in turn leads to smoother liquids, fewer chunks, and better results!

Many of the models on our site also have multiple speed settings. Often this can little more than low or high, but is crucial for getting the best results from harder ingredients, or crushing ice to make cocktails and frozen smoothies.

Easy-to-Clean

Finally, given that blending is inherently a rather messy business, you will have to clean your blender after every use. Therefore it may be helpful to check that your chosen model is marked as easy-to-clean, meaning that it has been designed for stress-free cleaning. Some models are even safe to put in the dishwasher, making them extremely easy to clean and take care of.

Biggest Blender Retailers

The biggest blender retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 187 current blender offers from eBay. The second biggest retailer is Amazon US with 100 offers. That means eBay is much bigger than Amazon US when it comes to blenders. Walmart is the third biggest retailer with 72 current offers.

When Are Most New Blenders Released?

Most new blenders tend to be released between October and November. For the latest blender features you may be best waiting until October 2018. Alternatively you might be able to buy one of the current blenders cheaper in October once the latest models have been released. 44 new blenders were released in November 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new blender releases. The biggest month in 2016 for new blender releases was October, with 108 new blenders released that month. In 2015 most new blenders were released in January, with 49 new blenders released that month.

How Fast Do Blender Prices Drop After Release?

On average, in the first 6 months after release, blenders drop in price by 7%. That means that on a typical blender costing $182 you could save on average $13 by waiting 6 months before buying.

Bowl Capacities

'Bowl Capacity' denotes the capacity of the main bowl of the blender, measured in litres (L).

The bowl capacities of blenders range from 0.12L to 7L. The bowl capacities of most blenders range from 0.4L to 0.7L. The blender with the biggest bowl capacity is the Waring CB15, which is a 4.5L bowl capacity blender and can be purchased for $1,188.00. The blender with the smallest bowl capacity is the Hamilton Beach 51101, which is a 0.3L bowl capacity blender and currently retails for $14.99.

A larger capacity bowl fitted to your blender means that a larger amount of ingredients can be processed and mixed at once, meaning the appliance is more efficient and can be used for larger cookery tasks.

Power

'Power' represents the power level of the blender, measured in watts.

The power of blenders range from 70W to 6,700W. The power of the majority of blenders range from 600W to 800W. The Cuisinart CBT-2000, which is on sale for $189.00, has the biggest power and is a 2,609W blender. The blender with the smallest power is the Russell Hobbs 22220, which is a 70W blender and can be purchased for $111.99.

A larger power level means that the motor in the blender is more powerful, leading to faster and more efficient mixing.

Types

There are two main types of blender: tabletop blenders that sit on your kitchen worktop and blender inside a glass jug, and immersion blenders that are handheld devices that can be immersed into bowls or saucepans to blend the contents.

We found 457 blenders that are tabletop blenders, which makes this the most common type amongst new blenders. Immersion is the second most frequently found type amongst new blenders. We found 277 blenders that are immersion blenders.

Available Colours

We found 299 blenders that are blenders that have a black coloured, which makes black the most frequently found colour amongst new blenders. We found 275 blenders that are blenders that have a White coloured, making White the second most popular colour amongst new blenders.
