Choosing the Best Blender
Blenders are household appliances that are widely used in kitchens all around the world. They are considered very useful tools because they can create a variety of different drinks like soups, sauces, soups, whipped creams and desserts. Basically, a blender is an efficient kitchen and laboratory device used to puree, blend, crush and emulsify various ingredients including food, fruits and vegetables. While a blender is very helpful, there are several models and types that should be considered when buying one. If you are planning to buy one for your kitchen, here are some things that you should look for.
Blenders that are best for use on the stovetop. This means that they are heavy duty, have a big motor and a long warranty to last for many years. A stovetop blender usually consists of a plastic container with an extended rotating blade at the top, powered by an electrical motor that's located in the bottom. The blades are designed to help cut through various ingredients that include vegetables, fruits and ice cream.
The blades must be sharpened regularly, so you should get a blender that comes with replaceable blades. Some brands come with replaceable blades that are made of carbon steel and some have replaceable blades made of ceramic that are much stronger than carbon steel. The longer blades are better for making smoothies. Vitamins and vegetables that need to be crushed and blended together will also get damaged if they are used for smoothies without a sharp blade.
Another type of blender that should be considered when buying a new one is the countertop blenders. These are designed to fit into the kitchen countertop where you usually prepare your meals. There are different sizes and models of countertop blenders so you should consider what your usual uses for it are. The biggest advantage to these blenders is that they are very versatile and can be used to make soups, creams, purees, sauces and desserts.
However, like smoothies, you should buy a good blender that comes with a durable blade and is very powerful. Some blenders are specifically made for chopping vegetables or chopping nuts like peanuts. There are also blenders that come with whiskers on the handle. If you frequently cook foods like pasta and rice, then a food processor with a whisker on the handle is also very convenient.
The best blenders are those that come with high quality parts. Usually, the parts will include the motor, the blade, the bowl and even the cord. When choosing a high-quality blender, you should be aware of how long the unit lasts. Remember that the longer the lasting the blenders, the easier and faster it is to make a healthy smoothie. So, if you want to make energy and weight loss supplements, smoothies, soups and sauces, then go for energy blenders.
On the other hand, countertop blenders are usually used for making drinks on the go. This appliance is usually not as powerful as the other ones mentioned so its functions can't match up to the ones of the high-powered blenders. A countertop blender can be used to make shakes, soups and creams but should only be used in limited situations. It should also be taken into account that countertop appliances are usually smaller than other big kitchen appliances.
The ultimate blender to choose would be the Vitamix. A Vitamix has an ability to liquefy and blend just about anything including ice cream, yogurt, sauces and frozen fruits and vegetables. The best part about this Vitamix is that it comes with eight speeds so that it can easily be operated by anyone, even a baby.
