The Best Blender Tutorial
Criteria and Best Pics

Are you wondering, which could be the best blender for you? There are so many types and models on the market and finding the one, which will suit you most, can be quite complicated.

Therefore, we have prepared this blender tutorial, which will surely help you decide which new small kitchen appliance to buy.

Already a long time ago, we have realized the importance of natural unprocessed foods for our health. Consequently, we have included in our healthy diet more organically grown fruit and vegetable, and various natural dietary supplements.

Of course, we have also bought many different food preparation appliances that help us prepare and process all natural nutritious meals. In the beginning we bought simpler, smaller, and cheaper blender models, which fulfilled our needs in those times.

With time, our eating habits and our demands have changed a lot and for that reason we had to buy a new, sophisticated, and multipurpose blender machine. Since we knew exactly what we need, our task was not so hard anymore. Of course, we did some research, but very soon we found the best blender for us.

Based on our experiences we will gladly help you choose the most suitable blender model for you as well.

True, there are really only two basic blender types. However, there are countless different marks and models available and finding the best blender is really a hard task.

Firstly, we have to concentrate on the most important criteria to decide which type of blender you should get. Secondly, in each category we present the best blender models that meet different possible demands.

So let's start. The first step is to check following 8 criteria, which will help you decide what kind of blender you are looking for:

1 - What Do You Intend to Prepare with Your Blender?

Do you plan to make only blender drinks, such as smoothies, shakes, non-alcoholic and alcohol cocktails, and soups? Maybe frozen blender drinks and ice cream too? 

In addition, would you like to grind coffee beans, nuts, seeds, and dry fruits? Prepare baby foods, sauces, mayonnaise, cake stuffing, and different cakes? Do you intend to mix pastry, dough for bread, pizza, cakes, macaroni, and more?

Or maybe you would like to prepare liquids, even hot soups, or softer goods right in a cooking pot or in a bowl, without moving them into a blender jar.

The answer to your question "Will it blend what I intend to blend?" must be positive.

2 - Blending Quality

It depends on three major factors: blending ingredients, blending amounts, and the blender performance itself.

There’s no big secret, you can expect better results from more powerful
and bigger blender machines.

3 – Blending Amounts and Frequency of Usage

Amounts and frequency of blending should be an important criterion when choosing the size and the power of your best blender model. Bigger the amounts and higher the frequency, the larger and stronger the blender should be.

4 - Blending Time

The first important aspect is how big chunks can be blended. The best blenders are larger and stronger. Therefore, they can blend bigger and stiffer parts of anything so preparation time is shorter.

Of course, the processing time itself is closely related to the power of a blender. Strong blenders can complete any task in a very short time.

5 - Ease of Usage

The heavier and bigger a blender is, less handy it is. If you do not have enough counter space in your kitchen, you should find an appropriate small blender; a portable blender would be a good solution.

On the opposite, if space in your kitchen is not a problem and in addition, you really enjoy cooking and you are looking for a great multifunctional device, you should check different blenders food processors. Moreover, there are enormous options in between.

Otherwise, the best blenders are quite easy to use. Of course, the more functions there are, the more time is needed to master it well.

Remember: To avoid any unnecessary problem you should read a blender manual first.

6 – Ease of Cleaning

Cleaning of a blender must be simple and quick. The best blenders can be taken apart and put back together very simply, the blender parts are made of high quality materials, and they are dishwasher safe.

Anyway, in order to prolong the lifetime of your appliance you should not put it in a dishwasher on a regular basis. It’s much better to wash it manually and dry it (especially the blender blades) after every usage.

7 – Warranty

The longer the warranty period for all the components is, the easier the decision about the best blender should be. Nevertheless, you cannot expect the same (or similar) commercial conditions for a simple $20 blender as for a sophisticated $500 blender machine.

8 – Price

You of course cannot forget about the price, especially if you are on a low budget. Anyway, we advise you to be careful. Before you make your final decision, you should check all the criteria. The price is important, but it should not be the decisive criterion.

As you know: "Quality doesn’t come cheap."
