Blender – An essential kitchen accessory you must own

While a lot of people say that kitchen blenders aren’t essential to the kitchen while some rely heavily on a blender and would feel lost without one. Kitchen blenders are useful in making your food preparation more efficient and saving your time in the kitchen. Buying a kitchen blender isn’t as simple a task as it sounds. Now, there comes the question ‘what to look for in a blender?’  Here are some of the points you can keep in mind when shopping for a kitchen blender.

  • Motor size

Similar to juicers, power is important for blenders also. An average kitchen blender usually boasts 300-600 watts of power. High-performance blenders boast a whopping 1,300 watts power.

  • Blades and drive sockets

Always check for the stainless steel drive sockets, blades, blade drive shafts, and others because plastic is a material that wears out quickly.

  • Container material and size

The blender containers are made from either plastic or glass or stainless steel. The containers capacity ranges from 8 ounces for the mini or personal blender to 10 – 64 ounces for average traditional blenders to high-performance blenders.

  • Pulsing button

If you are planning on making iced drinks or sorbets, a pulsing button is a necessity. Without this, you won’t be able to stop and mix the ice before starting the motor again.

  • Variable speeds

Having the ability to reduce the speed from high to very low will allow you to add ingredients that you don’t want to get liquidized in the middle.
