The blender was invented in 1922 and Stephen Poplawski was the first person to consider a tall container with rotating blades at the base. The invention was intended to create soda fountain drinks. This appliance is no longer for soda fountains only. Blenders can create juices and smoothies, mix ingredients, crush nuts and ice and prepare medical formulations. Here is a short list of some of the blenders you can choose from:
1. Cuisinart Smart Power 7-Speed Chrome Blender
This might be a small blender but it has a powerful 350W motor and seven speed settings. The blender jar is 40 oz and you can choose a chrome or white finish. If you want to crush ice, you don’t have to add more liquid like you would have to with some other kinds of blenders.
2. Back to Basics Personal Blender
This is a great blender if you are on a budget. The motor is 350W and the container holds up to 24 oz. If you want a blender to create single serving juices and smoothies, this is a great machine. There are three settings, which are pulse, low and high and this machine features a built in mug which is very handy.
3. Braun PowerMax Jug Blender
This blender can hold up to 58 oz in the container, making it ideal for business use in a café or restaurant. There is a feeder hole so you can add more liquid while the motor is running without having to open the lid. A strong 525W motor makes this blender powerful.
4. Braun Hand Held Blender
This is a stand blender which is useful and elegant. Running on a 400W motor, this blender comes with attachments such as a chopper and whisk. You can fit this blender to the wall or the side of your working table because it is small and easy to mount.
5. Black and Decker Crush Master
Featuring ten speed settings and a 48 oz container, the Black and Decker Crush Master has a handy 2 oz measuring cup in the lid. This blender has a powerful 475W motor and is very versatile. There is a fast clean button on this blender, so you can add soap and water and the blender cleans itself.
6. Bosch Porsche Designer Stand Blender
This stylish blender sports a powerful 450W motor and the jug can hold up to six cups of liquid. This blender has a steel container and stainless steel blades, so making crushed ice is easy with this model.
As well as the above blenders, there are many other useful blender appliances to choose from, depending on what they are going to be used for. Blenders come in different colors and sizes and they have different features. You might want one which will crush ice and nuts or you might just want a basic model which will combine juices and make smoothies.
