Best Blenders (Review)

Are you looking for a blender? I have done extensive research to help you choose the best blender out of 27 different models. Find out which blenders are worth to consider and which ones to avoid!:

#1 Vitamix 5200 Blender

Vitamix 5200 motor has peak power output of 2 horsepower (1491 watts). This model lives up to Vitamix’s reputation. Smoothies turn out perfectly smooth and silky without any pulps or chunks. Seeds are pulverized flawlessly. It also blends frozen fruits, vegetables and ice quickly and effortlessly. It features 10 speed settings as well a “pulse” mode. You certainly can’t call Vitamix 5200 quiet but it’s not as loud as some of the other high-end blenders. It’s still quite loud though.

Vitamix 5200 features friction heating which can heat up or make a soup in around 6 minutes. It works well and makes soup steaming hot.

Blades are made of hardened stainless steel. It comes with 64 oz. container which is plenty big. Lid seals very well. Overall build quality is good, Vitamix 5200 feels solid and well made which is why it has 7 year warranty.

Container is very easy to clean. Just put a bit of dish soap and warm water inside and let it blend for 30-60 seconds.

Overall Vitamix 5200 seems to offer the best value for money out of Vitamix model lineup. Its performance is great and although it’s expensive Vitamix is known for their long lasting blenders so in the long run you might actually save money by spending more upfront.

 

Details:

  • Vitamix 5200 motor power: 2 horsepower
  • Cord length: 6 feet
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x Motor base
    • 1 x 64 oz. container
    • 1 x Getting started guide
    • 1 x DVD
    • 1 x Classic tamper


 

#2 Breville BBL620 Fresh & Furious Blender

Breville BBL620 Fresh & Furious has 1100 watt motor and uses surgical grade stainless steel blades. Blending performance is really good, it’s not far off Vitamix models at a fraction of the price. Makes nearly perfectly silky smoothies without any chunks. Crushes frozen stuff without issues too.

It has 3 pre-programmed cycles: green smoothie, auto pulse/ice crush and smoothie. Each one blends for 60 seconds and turns off automatically. Alternatively you can blend with one of the five speed settings: mix, chop, blend, puree and liquify, they will also blend for 60 seconds unless you manually turn them off.

It has auto clean feature which works well if you use it right after making smoothies before any stuff has dried up. Just put warm water inside the jug, turn on the blender and press “auto clean” button. For harder cleanings you can put Cleaning efficiency can be roughly estimated at 95-99%, it cleans most of the stuff but some small bits might remained uncleaned. Jug has 50 oz capacity and is BPA free.

If the jar is overfilled it will warn you by LCD display flashing. Base is made of plastic.

Overall Breville BBL620 is a very good blender that offers great value for money. If Vitamix is too expensive for you then this is a good alternative, its performance is not far off however it probably won’t last as long.

 

Details:

  • Breville BBL620 motor power: 1100 watts
  • Dimensions: 17 x 8.5 x 7 inches
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x Motor base
    • 1 x 50oz (1.5L) BPA free Tritan Jug
    • 1 x Instruction book
    • 7 x Recipe cards


 

#3 Ninja Mega Kitchen System (BL770)

Ninja BL770 Mega Kitchen System includes 1500 watt base, 64 oz food processor bowl, 72 oz pitcher for blending and two 16 oz cups with to go lids. Bowl, pitcher and cups are made of BPA free plastic and are dishwasher safe.

Ninja BL770 performs very good due to combination of powerful motor and super sharp blades than can easily cut your fingers when touched. It makes very smooth smoothies and crushes ice effortlessly in seconds. Food processor works just as good for mixing dough or slicing vegetables.

Interface is very simple and there is a total of 6 buttons. Three of the buttons are for choosing different speeds – either for mixing dough, blending or crushing. It also has single serve mode for when you are using 16 oz cup. The other two buttons are “power” and “pulse” buttons.

Ninja BL770 Mega Kitchen System isn’t perfect though. It’s very loud, so loud in fact it might hurt your ears. If you find loud noises disturbing you probably won’t enjoy using this system. Another flaw is that it’s hard to access and therefore clean bottom of the bowl and pitcher. Those are the only two significant faults of this machine and might not even matter to some.

Overall Ninja BL770 offers great value for money. It doesn’t perform as well as higher-end blenders, but it’s far cheaper and most will find it good enough.

 

Details:

  • Ninja BL770 motor power: 1500 watts
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x Ninja BL770 base
    • 1 x 64 oz food processor bowl
    • 1 x 72 oz pitcher for blending
    • 1 x Six blade assembly for blending
    • 1 x Four blade assembly for food processor
    • 1 x Dough blade
    • 2 x 16 oz cups
    • 2 x To go lids
    • 1 x Instruction manual, quick start guide, inspiration guide and recipe guide


 

#4 Ninja BL660 Countertop Blender

Ninja BL660 blender has a powerful 1100 watt motor. Its blades are very sharp, so sharp in fact you can easily slice your fingers if you touch them so be careful. However that’s a good thing – it crushes ice effortlessly and blends fruits super smooth. It doesn’t perform perfectly though as sometimes vegetable smoothies turn out pulpy depending on ingredients.

It has 3 speed settings as well pulse and single serve modes. Is it noisy? A bit, but all powerful blenders are.

Ninja BL660 blender comes with 72 oz pitcher and two 16 oz Nutri Ninja cups with “To Go” lids. They are made of plastic. All parts are BPA free and dishwasher safe. It’s very easy to clean – Ninja BL660 blender is easy to dissemble and well designed in a way that there is nowhere for food to get stuck.

It’s not as good as Vitamix or other expensive blenders, but as a budget option it’s a great one. It performs well and offers really good value for money.

 

Details:

  • Motor power: 1100 watts
  • Ninja BL660 dimensions: 9.9 x 12.3 x 17.2 inches
  • Weight: 10.85 lbs
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x Ninja BL660 1100W blender
    • 1 x 72 oz Total Crushing pitcher
    • 2 x 16 oz cups with “To Go” Lids


 

#5 Vitamix 750 Professional Series Blender

Vitamix 750 has a peak power output of 2.2 horsepower and it uses hardened stainless steel blades for blending. It performs flawlessly as long as you are making bigger batches. Seeds are fully pulverized, smoothies are perfectly smooth, ice is crushed effortlessly etc. Making smaller batches can be a hassle though because the blades sit quite higher than the floor of the container and ingredients might fail to be properly blended. The problem lays within the low profile 64-ounce container, you can buy other containers separately but they are pricey.

Just like other Vitamix models this one too has variable speed control with 10 speed options, pulse mode and friction heating feature. What makes 750 stand out is its 5 pre-programmed blending settings – heat, chop, grind, blend and emulsify.

Just like other Vitamix blenders this one also has self cleaning feature. Overall build quality is superb – just as you would expect from Vitamix.

Overall this is the best blender in this list, it really has only two flaws – it’s expensive and doesn’t always work well for making small batches, however the latter can be fixed by buying smaller container, which is a bit expensive and only adds up to former flaw.

 

Details:

  • Vitamix 750 motor power: 2.2 horsepower
  • Dimensions: 17 x 8.5 x 7 inches
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x Motor base
    • 1 x Low profile 64 ounce container
    • 1 x Low profile tamper
    • 1 x Cookbook
    • 1 x Getting started guide


 

#6 Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender

Vitamix E310 has 2 horsepower (1491 watt) motor. Vitamix is well known for its high-end blenders but E310 is lower-end model from their assortment. It has 10 speed settings and even though highest one is kinda loud you probably won’t need to use it often as settings 5 to 7 are plenty powerful (most of the time at least). That being said it doesn’t blend as well as more expensive Vitamix models, i.e. you will have to blend for longer and sometimes smoothies might not end up as smooth as they would otherwise (but it does blend very well). Vitamix E310 blades are made of hardened stainless steel.

It’s easy to clean, just put warm water and a little bit of dish soap inside the jar and let it blend for 30-60 seconds.

Overall Vitamix E310 does perform better than lower priced blenders above, however taking all things into consideration it’s doesn’t offer best value for money. It doesn’t perform as well as Vitamix 7500 which is rated

 

Details:

  • Vitamix E310 motor power: 2 horsepower
  • Cord length: 4.5 feet
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x Vitamix E310 motor base
    • 1 x 48 oz. container
    • 1 x Mini-tamper
    • 1 x Cookbook


 

#7 Vitamix 7500 Blender

Vitamix 7500 is a higher end model on Vitamix lineup although it’s not the very top model. It has 2.2 horsepower and laser cut stainless steel blades. Its performance is really impressive. It pulverizes everything (including seeds) and makes perfect smoothies. They are as smooth as they get without any chunks.

Vitamix 7500  has variable speed control with a total of 10 speed options as well a pulse feature. Vitamix 7500 also has blade friction heating feature which makes cold ingredients steaming hot in around 6 minutes.
Just like other Vitamix blenders 7500 is well made and in most cases will last for many years. It has 7 years warranty.
It comes with low profile 64 oz container. Due to its design of being low profile container it’s not perfect for small batches as it might fail to draw ingredients to the blade. You can buy 32 oz container separately if you experience this issue but it’s not cheap.
It’s very simple to clean just like any other Vitamix model, just put a bit of dish soap and warm inside the container and let it blend for 30-60 seconds.
Overall this is a great blender however it’s too expensive. Most don’t want to spend so much money on a blender so the value for money really isn’t best.

Details:

  • Vitamix 7500 motor power: 2.2 horsepower
  • Dimensions: 17.5 x 9.4 x 7.7 inches
  • Weight: 12.5 lbs
  • Cord length: 6 feet

    • 1 x Low-Profile 64-ounce Container
    • 1 x DVD

    • 1 x Low-Profile Tamper


 

#8 Vitamix A2300 Ascent Series Smart Blender

Vitamix A2300 has 2.2 horsepower (~1640 watt) motor. Blending performance is impressive, everything turns out incredibly smooth (as silk) without any chunks. It pulverizes all of the seeds flawlessly. Fiction heating feature also works well and makes soup steaming hot in under 10 minutes.

It features 10 speed settings as well a pulse mode. It also automatically detects which (self-detect) container you use to adjust maximum blending time. You can pair Vitamix A2300 with your smartphone through Vitamix Perfect Blend App that features 17 programs and over 500 recipes. It does miss some fancy features like touch screen or memory settings but for most consumers these functions aren’t that necessary.

Vitamix A2300 is well made, it’s definitely made to last. It uses laser cut stainless steel blades for blending. Jar is made of BPA free plastic, it’s well made and really sturdy. It’s easy to clean too – just add a drop of dish soap with warm water and let it blend. Lid is well designed too – silicon gaskets and sturdy clips dismisses any worries about leaks.

 

Details:

  • Vitamix A2300 motor power: 2.2 horsepower
  • Vitamix A2300 dimensions: 11 x 8 x 17 in
  • Weight: 11.86 lbs

    • 1 x S2 low-profile tamper
    • 1 x Simply blending cookbook


 

#9 Blendtec Total Classic Original Blender

Blendtec Total Classic has 1560 watt motor. It doesn’t blend nuts well and doesn’t properly pulverize seeds like some of the other blenders do (but still pulverizes most of them). It can also struggle a bit if you try to blend lot of frozen stuff. Other than that it performs well and makes smooth smoothies. Some have claimed that Blendtec performs as good if not better than Vitamix but that’s not the case. It has stainless-steel forged blade which is dull (however dull blade is not a bad thing since it doesn’t necessarily mean worse blending performance. Sharp blades slices stuff whereas dull ones crushed it).

Blendtec Total Classic features 10 speed settings, 6 pre-programmed cycles and pulse mode. It also has friction heat feature to warm up soups or beverages. It comes with BPA free 75 ounce jar with 32 ounce blending capacity. It’s easy to clean – just put a bit of soap and water inside and let it blend for a minute or less.

Some consumers have complained about defective jars, i.e. receiving defective one or it breaking during use. However majority of consumers haven’t experienced this issue.

 

Details:

  • Blendtec Total Classic motor power: 1560 watts
  • Cord length: 3 feet


 

#10 Ninja BL480 Blender

Ninja BL480 blender has 1000 watt motor. It’s very loud but does a good job at blending. It has no problem crushing ice, smoothies turn out smooth and most of the dry stuff gets pulverized well. It has ”start/stop” and ”pulse modes” as well two auto IQ modes: “Blend” and “ULTRA Blend”.

Ninja BL480 blender is very loud even when compared to more powerful blenders. If noise can be problematic to you, i.e. you make smoothies in the morning while the rest of the family sleeps then you probably will want to look for another blender as this one can wake up your loved ones.

 

Details:

  • Ninja BL480 motor power: 1000 watts
  • Ninja BL480 dimensions: 9.9 x 12.3 x 17.2 inches
  • Weight: 10.85 lbs
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x Ninja BL480
    • 1 x Small 18 ounce Nutri ninja cup
    • 1 x Regular 24 ounce Nutri ninja cup
    • 2 x Sip & seal lids
    • 1 x Pro extractor blades
    • 1 x Instruction book


 

#11 Homgeek Professional Blender

Homgeek Professional blender has 1450 watt motor that speeds up its 3-layer stainless steel blades up to 30,000 RPM. It features 4 preset smart programs and 8 variable speeds.

For the pricing performance is great. It makes consistent and reasonably smooth smoothies. Crushes ice easily too. However it sometimes emits slight burning smell when under load which is a bit worrying.

Overall build quality feels decent.

Comes with 2L Tritan container. All of the materials that touches food are BPA free and LFGB approved. Cleaning is very simple – add a drop of dish soap and warm water and let it blend for 30-60 seconds.

Homgeek Professional blender is ETL approved and LAB certified.

 

Details:

  • Homgeek Professional blender motor power: 1450 watts
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x motor base
    • 1 x 2L Tritan container
    • 1 x Tamper
    • 1 x Cookbook
    • 1 x Manual guide
    • 1 x Small shovel


 

#12 Ninja BL456 Blender

Ninja BL456 blender has 900 watt motor. It performs well, not as good as more expensive and powerful Ninja blenders but still nonetheless well. Makes pretty smooth smoothies without pulps but it takes longer than with more powerful models. Ninja BL456 is loud – just like any other powerful blender.

You have to take out gasket out of blade assembly frequently to clean it otherwise it will start to smell horribly and develop mold which can be a health hazard. It’s annoyance on itself but the bigger problem is that it’s difficult to remove. Another issue with this model is potential reliability – there are consumer reports about the blender breaking after few months of use. Most don’t experience this problem but you still should be aware that it does tend to happen sometimes.

All parts are BPA free and dishwasher safe.

 

Details:

  • Motor power: 900 watts
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x Ninja BL456 900 watt base
    • 1 x 18 oz. Nutri Ninja Cup
    • 1 x 24 oz. Nutri Ninja Cup
    • 1 x Recipe book


 

#13 NutriBullet Rx N17-1001

NutriBullet Rx N17-1001 has 1700 watt motor. It works well as long as you follow instructions meaning you have to include liquid with anything you blend. Smoothies end up pretty smooth and without pulps but depending on what you blend sometimes they won’t turn out silky smooth like with Vitamix or other high-end blenders.

It comes with heating feature and makes soups steaming hot but you can’t use this function more than one time at a time otherwise the motor can overheat.

NutriBullet Rx N17-1001 feels well made and sturdy.

 

Details:

  • NutriBullet Rx N17-1001 motor power: 1700 watts
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x 1700 watt motor base

    • 1 x 45oz oversized cup with pitcher lid
    • 1 x Stay fresh lid
    • 1 x Nature’s Prescription Book


 

#14 NutriBullet ZNBF30500Z Blender

NutriBullet ZNBF30500Z blender set includes 1200W motor base, 64 oz blender with lid and vented lid cap, tamper, 32 oz cup, 24 oz cup, easy-twist extractor blade, two to-go lids and recipe book. Overall it performs well however it’s not the best performer at this pricing (but it’s not far off). Most of the time smoothies end up smooth however sometimes you end up with pieces that aren’t fully blended. It does crush ice well. It’s very loud which might be a deal breaker for some.

It has a total of 6 buttons including “power” button. Three of the button offer different power modes: low, medium and high. The other two buttons are for “extract” and “pulse” modes.

Many blenders have issues with leaking lids – NutriBullet ZNBF30500Z isn’t one of them. Pitcher and cups are made of BPA free plastic. They are dishwasher safe, the extractor blades aren’t however.

 

Details:

  • NutriBullet ZNBF30500Z motor power: 1200 watts
  • NutriBullet ZNBF30500Z dimensions: 8.07 x 7.75 x 16.97 (Length x Width x Height)

    • 1 x 24 oz cup
    • 1 x Easy-twist extractor blade
    • 2 x to-go lids
    • 1 x Recipe book


 

#15 NutriBullet NBR-1201 12-Piece Blender

NutriBullet NBR-1201 is among most popular budget blenders and not without a reason! It has 600 watt motor which might seem a bit weak compared to other blenders but that’s not the case. NutriBullet NBR-1201 is pretty powerful and blends most of the stuff quite smoothly. However it’s not as good as similarly priced Ninja BL660 and depending on what you blend you might end up with a bit pulpy drink. Most will find NutriBullet NBR-1201 to perform well enough, however if you are used to more expensive and powerful blenders then you might be a bit disappointed.

It’s a bit noisy but really all blenders that perform well are. NutriBullet NBR-1201 is pretty compact too – it’s 8 inches tall and 5.375 inches in diameter.

Most of the parts are dishwasher safe except the base and blades. It comes with extractor and milling (for grinding dry stuff) blade. Cups are made of BPA free plastic.

Some consumers have complained about rubber gasket leaking however very few actually experience this problem.

 

Details:

  • Motor power: 600 watts
  • Blender Height: 8 inches
  • Blender diameter: 5.375 inches
  • Weight: 3.6 lbs
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x 600W motor base
    • 1 x Extractor blade
    • 1 x Milling blade
    • 1 x Handled cup
    • 1 x 24 oz cup
    • 1 x 18 oz cup
    • 1 x Cup ring
    • 1 x Cup ring with handle
    • 2 x Stay-Fresh re-sealable lids and
    • 1 x Recipe book


 

#16 KitchenAid KSB1570ER

Blending performance of KitchenAid KSB1570ER is mediocre as expected at this pricing. It’s not bad but neither is it great. Sometimes it struggles with frozen stuff. It uses stainless steel blade and has 5 speed settings.

Lid design is flawed and because of that it fits loosely. Some consumers have complained about jar breaking too! Overall build quality feels ok but not great.


 

#17 Cuisinart CPB-300 Blender

Cuisinart CPB-300 blender has 350 watt motor. It comes with blending and chopping blades. It has 3 blending modes: high, pulse and low. Blending performance is decent. Of course you can’t expect silky smooth texture but for such a small blender it does perform well. Doesn’t struggle or anything. Crushes ice well but be sure to read manual first.

Size wise it’s pretty small. Be aware that lid doesn’t seal so be careful.

It seems like Cuisinart CPB-300 isn’t made to last. Many consumers have complained about it stopping to work after 1 or so year of use.

Details:

  • Cuisinart CPB-300 motor power: 350 watts
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x Motor base
    • 1 x 32-oz. blender jar
    • 1 x 8-oz. chopping cup
    • 4 x 16-oz. travel cups
    • 1 x Blending blade
    • 1 x Chopping blade


 

#18 Oster BLSTPB-WBL

Oster BLSTPB-WBL has 250 watt motor. Overall blending performance is mediocre. Often smoothies end up chunky, other times they are quite smooth. It blends stuff ok but you might find a need to add liquid for decent results. The bottle container is narrowest in the middle which also has a negative impact on blending performance. Oster BLSTPB-WBL blender is very inexpensive, for the money it sells it performs pretty well but it can’t compete with more expensive blenders.

Oster BLSTPB-WBL blender comes with BPA free 20 ounce plastic bottle which is used for blending. The bottle is dishwasher safe, however because it’s narrow and tall it’s hard to clean by hand. It’s also a bit inconvenient to put ingredients inside due to the narrowness of the opening. Closing mechanism also is not very secure and there is spillage hazard. Other than that it’s well designed for carrying and will even fit in most cup holders.

 

Details:

  • Oster BLSTPB-WBL motor power: 250 watts
  • Oster BLSTPB-WBL dimensions: 15.25 x 5 x 5 inches
  • Oster BLSTPB-WBL cord length: 16 inches
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x Oster BLSTPB-WBL blender base
    • 1 x 20 ounce plastic bottle
    • 1 x Stainless steel assembly
    • 1 x Bottle lid
    • 1 x Instruction manual


 

#19 Oster Pro 1200 Blender

Oster Pro 1200 blender has 1200 watt motor with 900 watts of ice crushing power. Despite being quite powerful it still often fails at making perfectly smooth beverages. They still end up kinda ok  but you can expect to end up with a bit of chunks depending on what you blend. It can blend frozen stuff but it takes a while to do so and you might have to add some liquid. Oster Pro 1200 isn’t suited for big batches otherwise you might overwhelm the motor.

It has 7 speeds: low, medium high as well pulse, green/frozen smoothies, food chop/salsa & milkshake modes.

Consumer reports indicate possible reliability issues. Although not a majority still a significant amount of users have reported different parts of Oster Pro 1200 breaking after less than 1 year of use. It seems like it’s not a very well made device, most of the construction is made of plastic although images might suggest otherwise due to coating.

 

Details:

  • Oster Pro 1200 motor power: 1200 watts
  • Package contents:
    • 1 x Oster Pro 1200 base
    • 1 x 6 cup Boroclass glass jar; extra large
    • 1 x 5 cup food processing bowl (BPA free)
    • 1 x stainless steel slicing disk
    • 1 x chopping blade
    • 1 x 24 ounce lidded smoothie to go cup


 

#20 BLACK+DECKER BL2010BP Crush Master 10-Speed Blender

BLACK+DECKER BL2010BP blender has 550 watt motor. Blending performance could be described as mediocre. It does ok but not great job with blending fruits and struggles with green and frozen stuff. It has 10 speed settings but because of its weak performance you will probably only ever find yourself using the highest one rendering the rest of them useless.

Reliability issues seem to be common with BLACK+DECKER BL2010BP. Most common issues consumers have experienced are 48 oz glass jar cracking and motor smoking & breaking after few months of use. Overall build quality is bad, the base is made of cheap plastic and doesn’t feel sturdy at all.


 

#21 Oster 6812-001

Oster 6812-001 has 700 watt motor (with 450 watt blending power). It doesn’t blend that well. Smoothies don’t end up as smooth as desired, there are chunks in them. It also really struggles with crushing ice. It has 16 speed settings – kinda useless since it lacks power in the first place and you will want to use the most powerful one all the time.

Overall build quality feels cheap. Bottom is made of cheap plastic, it has a chrome like coating so don’t get fooled by pictures. The whole construction doesn’t feel very solid. Lid mechanism doesn’t inspire confidence. Jar is pretty decent though – it’s made of glass and is dishwasher safe. Blades are made of stainless steel.

If you are looking for a good blender then Oster 6812-001 isn’t it.


 

#22 Hamilton Beach Power Elite Blender 58148A

Hamilton Beach 58148A Power Elite Blender has 700 watt motor. It’s a bit weakish and performance isn’t great. It might struggle to makes smoothies without enough liquid added. The problem isn’t only the lack of power but also the blades. They don’t blend that well. It’s also very loud!

Jar has 40 oz capacity, it’s made of BPA free glass and is dishwasher safe.

Regarding consumers reports it also seems like it’s not the most reliable blender for long-term use. Motor isn’t very reliable and overall construction isn’t sturdy. It’s not uncommon for parts to break within first year of use.

 

Details:

  • Motor power: 700 watts


 

#23 Hamilton Beach 54220 Wave Crusher Blender

Hamilton Beach 54220 blender has 700 watt motor. It’s weak and you often end up with large chunks. Really struggles with crushing ice too. It has 8 buttons: Dice; stir/easy clean; , milkshake mix; chop salsa; puree whip; smoothie grate; grind icy drink and crush ice.

Hamilton Beach 54220 comes with 40 ounce glass jar. Lids seems to be well designed, they fit well and don’t leak.

Overall Hamilton Beach 54220 cannot be recommended due to its poor performance.


 

#24 Oster Core 16-Speed Blender

Oster Core 16-Speed blender has 700 watt motor (that outputs 450 blending watts). Blending performance is bad, it doesn’t mix ingredients properly and you end up with chunky smoothies. It also can’t handle frozen stuff unless you put much more liquid than the frozen things inside the jar.

Oster Core 16-Speed blender has 8 high speed (ice crush, grate, blend, shred, grind, mash, liquefy, frappe) and 6 low speed settings (stir, blend, puree, chop, whip, mix).

Build quality of Oster Core 16-Speed blender is terrible. Base is made of flimsy plastic, buttons are loose and feel like they are about to break/fall off.

Oster Core 16-Speed blender comes with 3 cup BPA free jar and food processor attachment.


 

#25 BLACK+DECKER BL2010BG Countertop Blender

BLACK+DECKER BL2010BG has 550 watt motor. It can achieve it’s peak power only for short periods of time, realistically you will be blending with 350 watts most of the time. It does lack power as it often struggles to blend stuff properly. It also means that longevity of BLACK+DECKER BL2010BG is questionable as motor might not survive for long always working on overdrive. It has 10 speed settings which is totally unnecessary as almost always you have to use the highest setting due to underpowered motor.

It’s not among most powerful blenders but it’s among loudest ones. Seriously, if you want to wake everyone up in the morning then this blender will work better than an alarm.

BLACK+DECKER BL2010BG features four tip stainless steel blade and comes with 40 oz jar.

BLACK+DECKER BL2010BG is very cheap and for a reason. It cannot be recommended because of its rather poor performance. Don’t buy one unless you have a weird fetish for feeling disappointed.


 

#26 Hamilton Beach 58149 Power Elite Blender

Hamilton Beach 58149 Power Elite blender has motor with peak power of 700 watts. Hamilton Beach does make a lot of good products but 58149 Power Elite blender isn’t among them. First of all it doesn’t perform well. It takes forever to blend stuff and it doesn’t end up as smooth. It also has a hard time crushing ice. Overall build quality is not that good too, blender is a bit fragile. Also according to consumer reports the motor is not very reliable, it’s not uncommon for it to decrease in power significantly after 6-18 months of use which is a huge issue since the motor is already weak when working properly.

Hamilton Beach 58149 comes with 40 oz BPA free glass pitcher and 3 cup food chopper.


 

#27 BELLA 13330 Blender

BELLA 13330 has 240 watt motor. It’s budget blender so you can’t expect silky smooth drinks with it but it does blend fruits all right or at least it seems that way at first. If you are going to try to blend anything frozen you probably are going to have a bad time as it will really struggle and perhaps even fail at doing so.

The main problem with BELLA 13330 is its build quality however. It just isn’t made to last and consumer reports back this up. It starts to show signs of wear after few months of use, like decreased blending performance (more pulps in smoothies) and it’s not uncommon for the device to break after less than 1 year of use. And it’s not like BELLA 13330 has 1 weak spot, overall build quality is low as different consumers have experienced different problems. Problems like blade wearing out, motor overheating and/or smoking, the base cracking and other seems to be somewhat common.
