It feels like a new blender comes out every other day. The question is, which one should I invest in? Yes. Investing is the right way to think about it. With how expensive blenders can be, purchasing one will be an investment. But I think it's a worth-while investment and I want to help you choose the right one for your kitchen.
When you go on to Amazon and type in “blenders,” you’ll be met with nearly 20 pages worth of different options, all of which coming with a wide-variety of reviews.
Searching for kitchen supplies can be difficult enough; finding the right blender for your kitchen shouldn’t be so difficult, right?
I want to narrow down your search for you so you have to search no longer.
You’ve probably heard of the most popular brands like NutriBullet, Vitamix, and Ninja. All are great in their own ways. But since I'm not in the business of telling you why you shouldn’t buy a certain product, I'd like to simply give you three reasons why you should buy the Ninja.
We’re all about positivity here, and I write this as an owner of the Ninja. I couldn’t vouch for it more and was so excited once my got purchased off the registry.
There’s nothing worse than sinking money into a blender, only to find that it doesn’t blend very well! Whether it’s the morning and you’re making an acai bowl with frozen fruit or its the evening and you’re making a home-made pesto sauce, the quality of the blending mechanism is crucial.
The Ninja leaves nothing unblended (unless you’re using the pulse feature and that’s what you’re looking for). You no longer need that weird plastic mixing stick during the middle of a blending process. The Ninja blends like a master all on its own. It’s sort of in the name, actually.
Both are excellent. My wife and I own the really nice model for someone with a budget and couldn’t be happier.
The quality of the blending feels unmatched.
The really nice model takes the cake, however, if you’re not on a budget (or you’ve got a really big budget). If you're budget-less, this is the blender to go for.
Most people don’t know that food processors and blenders actually serve different purposes. Food processors, as the name suggests, are really for bunches of food that need blending at every level.
Pesto sauces which contain a lot of greens, nut butters, and house-made cheeses (like a vegan ricotta cheese, for example) are all done best in a food processor.
Blenders are going to be better for more liquid-based foods like soups, sauces, milk shakes, etc.
What’s absolutely incredible about the really nice model is that it has one base which is compatible a food processing bowl, a personal smoothie container, and a full blending container.
There are so many more benefits, but we’ll just name one more. Concision is key.
Historically, blenders can be pretty big and bulky. They take up a lot of prime real estate on the kitchen counter and aren’t exactly pretty to look at (well, except the Ninja—it’s sleek and ninja-like even in its aesthetic).
The really nice model for someone on a budget is extremely portable.
This means you can store a way in a shelf with no problem, put in the pantry, take it on a vacation because your smoothies really matter to you, or simply leave it on the counter.
I realize that this point is sort of a departure from the functionality of the machine, but we promise you as avid users of the really nice model for someone on a budget, the portability matters. To have the option to easily store your blender or keep it on the counter is amazing.
While the base of the really nice model is slightly less portable, the fact that it still comes with personal smoothie containers is incredible.
Either way, you can’t go wrong. But if you’re short on kitchen space but still want powerful blending abilities, the really nice model for someone on a budget is the way to go.
