These are the things you need to consider while buying a blender.

Purchasing a kitchen blender may seem like a basic task yet it requires some thought to guarantee that your buy meets your prerequisite. There is a significant assortment of blenders accessible in the market. Some have fundamental capacities while others have sophisticated features.

Here are some things you may consider while buying a blender!

1. Do you require a hand blender or a countertop blender?

Countertop blenders are made for your Kitchen slab, with a big jug appended to a stand that contains the blender controls. They’re perfect for making smoothies, hummus, crushing veggies or even ice. If you regularly make smoothies after you hit the gym then a countertop blender will do the job for you perfectly. Some of these even come in a ‘personal’ size so that you can directly drink from the container provided. Hand blenders, or stick blenders, are little handheld blenders with a pivoting blade at the end of a long shaft. They’re made to mix substances in bowls or containers and work well if you have to puree a soup or a sauce or churn up a milkshake. If on the off chance that you are a shake or smoothie person go for a countertop blender however if you require making cake batter or whipping egg whites or want simply straightforward blending, then go for a hand blender.

2. What Materials are used to make the containers

The containers are usually made of glass, plastic or stainless steel. Glass containers are heavier but are more stable when compared to the other two. The downside of glass containers is that it makes them heavier to pour out substances from. Plastic containers are often more prone to scratches and they tend to absorb the aroma of the pulverized food.

Stainless Steel containers are good to look at but they block the visibility of the food being blended and that makes it difficult to check the consistency of the liquid.

3. The power range of the blender’s motor

Typically blenders with higher wattage can easily turn bigger pieces such as fruits into liquid on their own. Blenders that have lower wattage need liquids such as water to be poured into the container to help the food pieces to move around in the blender and later to be emulsified. High-powered blenders can even crush ice without any damage to the blender itself.

4. Space occupied by the blender

Hand blenders are comparatively smaller in size than countertop blenders. That’s why can be easily tucked away in a cabinet if the kitchen is smaller in size or even if you don’t want to devote considerable space to them on the kitchen slab to avoid the clutter. Counter Top Blenders on the other hand usually occupy a significant amount of space on the kitchen counter, however, they allow you to make larger quantities of food items.

For example, they can easily be used to make smoothies for four people at a go depending on the capacity of the container.

5. Budget

Definitely, this is a very simple question, yet it frequently gets ignored. Deciding the amount you’re willing to spend can help you narrow down to a few brands quite easily. However, you should always make sure that you get all the different accessories such as a whisk or extra containers in this budget limit you have set. You should properly weigh out all the options and pick a brand, analyse its cost-effectiveness and only then make a choice. There is not much difference between the price ranges of the different brands of hand blenders and countertop blenders, but make sure that you think about the usage you have of the blender.
