2. Overall Build Quality Size

There are a wide range of models available to choose from, ranging from budget options to expensive high-end units.

Blenders with a glass jug are often pricier, but they are easier to clean, less likely to scratch and odour resistant.
Plastic jugs are more portable, although they can be prone to cracking and scratching, as well as retaining the smell of foods blended inside.

Stainless steel jugs might be a good fit for your kitchen and look sleek, however you may have problems seeing what’s going on inside when the appliance is blending.

Hand blenders are also available, enabling you to puree foods right in the pan for extra convenience.

3. Blender Features

If you’re still wondering how to choose a blender, examine the features included, with many top of the range models being akin to a good food processor

  • Touchpad control panels
  • Settings for chopping, stirring, liquefying and other tasks
  • Stainless steel blades for strength and durability
  • Large base for sturdiness while switched on
  • Hole in the lid for pouring in liquids and allowing steam to exit

4. Speed Settings

Modern blenders can have around 16 speed settings, but most people should be able to cope just fine with basic options such as slow, medium and fast.

However, if you fancy yourself as a culinary expert, you may find it is worth paying a little extra to refine your blending capabilities.

5. Why A Blender?

Blenders, juicers and food processors perform relatively similar functions. When is it best to buy a blender? If you just want to be able to make milkshakes, smoothies with frozen fruit and big batches of soup, and if you also want to make homemade nut butters and whip up cocktails with crushed ice go for a high-powered blender. Juicers just do one thing—extract juice from fruit and veggies, leaving the fibrous pulp behind in the juicer. If you want to be able to do more with one kitchen appliance, including having your everyday dinner ingredients chopped and sliced fast for you, a food processor might be a better option.
