2 Vitamix 5200 Blender
Best Blender for Totally Smooth Results
This massive (64-ounce) container is perfect for preparing medium to large batches, but it can still handle smaller batches as well. Its insane motor power gives satiny-smooth results, but the best part is that the speed can be raised gradually, which makes sure that air pockets won’t lift your ingredients up out of the blade’s reach. Oh, and let’s not forget that you can make eight margaritas in one easy batch! There’s also a five-year warranty, just in case.
3 Hamilton Beach Power Elite Multi-Function Blender
Best Blender for the Budget
This tried-and-tested blender is the perfect budget option if you’re looking for a high-powered blender that won’t break in three months. It has 12 settings on it, so you can chop gently or blend thoroughly, and it has a three-year warranty for guaranteed longevity.
4 Vitamix S30 Personal Blender
Best All-in-One Blender
No need to buy a full-sized blender and a mini option for on-the-go smoothies. This mini-sized Vitamix comes with both a 20-ounce portable smoothie container that fits on the blender, plus a 40-ounce carafe for medium-sized batches. It has 10 simple speed settings for versatile performance.
5 Oster MyBlend Smoothie Blender
Best Blender for Hurried Mornings
Forgetful? No need to worry. After the cycle is done, this unit automatically shuts off, so you can continue to go about your morning routine without running back into the kitchen. Its vibrant color options make it a perfect fit for colorful kitchens.
6 Magic Bullet Nutribullet 12-Piece High-Speed Blender System
Best Blender for Speed
A basic design makes this machine easy to use. Fill up ingredients inside the container before popping the blade on, place it on the base, then gently push down to trigger the power for instant results. A 600-watt motor is strong enough to bust seeds, shred skins, and break through stems, and it was designed specifically to extract the most nutrients out of fruits and veggies as possible. This one comes with both a blending and a milling blade (for nuts, seeds and oats), as well as three different-sized cup attachments.
7 Magic Bullet Blender, Small
Best Blender for Simplicity
In just 10 seconds, this super-fast blender delivers high-quality results. It works just like the NutriBullet, but the wattage is slightly lower. This unit also comes with an elaborate book to provide you with several blending ideas.
8 SMEG Blender
Best Blender for Stylish Kitchens
This retro ’50s-style blender comes in a variety of colors (including pasted blue, black, silver, red, and cream), but, more importantly, it’s designed by a family of renowned Italian blacksmiths. If you’re on the hunt for impeccable craftsmanship and restaurant-quality blending, SMEG is your brand.
9 KitchenAid 2-Speed Hand Blender
Best Hand/Immersion Blender
This handheld blender is best used for soups and sauces as opposed to smoothies. It can be used inside beakers, pitchers, and pots, eliminating the need to transfer liquids from one container to another. It even comes in 18 different colors!
