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.

We found 192 current offers for blenders from eBay making it the biggest blender retailer. That is more than twice as big as the second biggest retailer, Walmart for whom we found 70 current offers for blenders. The third biggest retailer is Overstock with 58 current blender offers.

When Are Most New Blenders Released?

Most new blenders tend to be released between November and January. That means that most of the latest blender technology was released in within the last 3 months, and now is good time to buy. In January 2019, three new blenders were released making it the biggest month that year for new blender releases. 30 new blenders were released in November 2018 making it the biggest month that year for new blender releases. In 2017 most new blenders were released in November as well, with 48 new blenders released that month.

How Fast Do Blender Prices Drop After Release?

New blenders drop in price by an average of 4% in the first 6 months after they were first released.

That means a saving of $5 on a typical $134 new blender if you wait 6 months before buying.

Bowl Capacities

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

Across the range of blenders, the bowl capacities range from 0.12L to 7L. The bowl capacities of the majority of blenders range from 0.4L to 0.7L. The Waring CB15, which currently retails for $1,069.00, has the biggest bowl capacity and is a 4.5L bowl capacity blender. The blender with the smallest bowl capacity is the Hamilton Beach 51101, which is a 0.3L bowl capacity blender and currently retails for $22.88.

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.

Comparing all blenders, the power range from 56W to 6,700W. The power of the majority of blenders range from 300W to 500W. The blender with the biggest power is the Cuisinart CBT2000, which is a 2,609W blender and sells for $289.99. The blender with the smallest power is the Hamilton Beach 50190, which is a 56W blender and is on sale for $26.25.

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.

Tabletop is the most frequently found type amongst new blenders. We found 597 blenders that are tabletop blenders. The second most frequently found type amongst new blenders is immersion. We found 366 blenders that are immersion blenders.

Colours

Black is the most frequently found colour amongst new blenders. We found 376 blenders that are blenders that have a black coloured. We found 332 blenders that are blenders that have a white coloured, making white the second most common colour amongst new blenders.
