Blender Buying Advice

A blender is a must-have in almost every kitchen. People can get help from this powerful tool for blending all of your culinary creations. Modern blenders are high-quality made; all of them are ergonomically designed to make even your toughest jobs a breeze. Additional features include: variable speed control, blender attachment and a resilient beaker. Some of it is portable; it makes the perfect companion for the frequent traveler.

You may not need a heavy duty model unless you are doing some serious "blending", but if you enjoy whipping up a breakfast shake or adult cocktail, they are nice to have around. This is one of those items that every kitchen should have but you don't need to spend a lot of money unless you want a high powered muscle machine with all the extra speeds. Some things you may want to look for in a new blender: Power: The higher the wattage, the more powerful the blender will be. You will want a blender with at least 350 watts and this wattage will be sufficient for most of the food you can put in a blender.

Capacity: Most blenders range in size from 4 cups to 7 cups and I it is better to buy one blender toward the larger size so you don't have to worry about the blend overflowing the container. You'll find the large size especially helpful when you are pureeing large quantities of soups and or sauces. Speed: Do you really need a blender with multiple speeds set to blend something? All you need is that you can have a fast, medium and slow speeds and the ability to pulse which is often required in some recipes.

Design: You will pay more for a sleek design and you may want that if you leave the blender on the counter, but if you store it in a cabinet and only pull it out on occasion, don't pay up just for a space age looking design. Pay more for better features like being able to remove the blades for cleaning, an extra wide motor base to provide stability and an opening for adding ingredients or letting steam out when blending hot soups. Really important is a tight fitting lid.

Materials: Glass and stainless steel is you two best choices when buying a blender. The advantage of glass is you can see what you are working with and with stainless you don't have to worry about breakage. I prefer glass so I can keep an eye on things. Plastic is ok and will be lighter than glass but after a while, the plastic scratches and can shatter.

Buying Tips:
Though blenders are inexpensive to buy, you need to pick a nice one so that you do not waste your investment. Normally take a glass jar and the blender blade is stainless steel. A sturdy base would prevent the blender from wobbling. All jars and lids should be dishwasher safe for easy cleaning purpose. Last thing, you need to pick a quiet blender for your kitchen. A lot of it are too noise and would make the old people at home uncomfortable.
