Top Rated Blenders

Top Rated Blenders
With so many blenders available today, it is difficult to know which top rated blender you should buy.

A blender is a handy kitchen appliance that purees and mixes a variety of foods using high speed and sharp blades. Blenders can be used to make milkshakes (my children’s favorite), smoothies, various sauces, etc.

So how do you choose a blender? What things should you look at and consider?

The first thing you want to consider when shopping for a blender is what type you want. Do you want a countertop blender? An immersion blender? A personal/portable blender? Or a specialty blender?

You also want to look at the size, appearance and features of each blender.

Top Rated Countertop Blenders

These blenders are what you typically think of when you first think of blenders. They consist of a container that sits on a base and typically sits on the counter, thus the name countertop blender. There are very simple models of the countertop blender which have few speeds and buttons. Then there are more advanced models that have more options. Some are combination machines of blender and food processor. Depending on what you want, you can spend as little as $20 and as much as $500.

Here is a quick list of our reviews of the top rated / best selling countertop blenders:

Top Rated Immersion Blenders

Immersion blenders are handheld blenders that you hold while placing the blender part inside the bowl or pan. Typically you would not use an immersion blender to blend hard or frozen foods.  With an immersion blender it is so easy to blend hot soups or cold drinks right in the bowl, pot or pitcher.

Here is a list of the top 10 best selling / top rated immersion hand blenders:

Top Rated Personal / Portable Blenders

These blenders are smaller – typically making one drink at a time.  Because they are smaller, they also are portable.  This can be great for singles or people that travel a lot or even to use at the office.  But if you plan on making smoothies for the family or for your friends, then you will want something bigger. For people on the go, a personal blender makes making smoothies, crushing ice and grinding coffee quick and easy.
