Blender Guide

A blender should be the most used appliance in the kitchen. Add ingredients, hit switch - job done.

"Blending is the easiest and most efficient way to provide food that is both nourishing and easy to digest. By blending foods, we can counteract the poor eating habits most of us have developed over the years, and that are the cause of many of the physical problems we have." - Ann Wigmore

Unlike juicing, which separates the juice from the fibre, blenders utilise the whole fruit, blending it to a fine texture. You can use a broader selection of foods with blenders, as well as easily mixing in powders, oils, spices and extracts.

Blender prices vary widely and as with juicers, the models available in the high street lack performance. Cheap blenders have weak motors and struggle with the most basic jobs like crushing ice or blending frozen produce. If your requirements are basic mixing and fruit smoothies then a cheap blender may suffice but for any bigger jobs - you need power.

Variable speed control is an important function offering more control of the texture of the produce being blended. Many mixtures require a slow start, building up to a higher speed.

We recommend spending the most you can on one of these machines. Our selection of blenders have powerful motors with a solid heavy base with the exception of the Tribest Personal Blender PB200 . The Waring PB20CX blender is a popular choice as it performs above any high street blender and is also very attractive, whilst selling at a sensible price but if money is no object - then look no further than a commercial blender which can boast anything upto a 2 horse power motor.
