Using a blender can really transform your cooking and make a good meal into a great one. Here seven great blenders for you to add to your kitchen
A blender is the kind of kitchen appliance that, when you buy it, will make you wonder how you lived without it. They’re great for making sauces, soups or smoothies, and a whole range of other foods. Knowing which one to buy can be difficult so here are the seven best blenders you can add to your kitchen.
The Breville Blend Active Personal Blender is one of the most versatile blenders you will find on the internet. The bottle that comes with the blender doubles as both a container for blending fruit and as a bottle for carrying smoothies. The light blades are, despite their size, able to crush ice, allowing you to make some great smoothies. Since the bottles are very light, it’s a great blender to use if you do a lot of exercise.
The NUTRiBULLET is perhaps one of the most famous blender brands. At one point, it seemed as if they were being advertised absolutely everywhere.
The NUTRiBULLET’s sleek design makes it a great addition to your kitchen, since it doesn’t use a lot of space. It has a minimalist look too, which allows it to match the décor of nearly any kitchen.

While it may cost a little bit more than some brands of blender, it’s powerful, high speed motor allows you to make some great soups or smoothies fast.
If you would like a blender similar to the NUTRiBULLET for a fraction of the price, try the Magic Bullet.
The Magic Bullet is similar in its design to the NUTRIBULLET, as it has the same creators, but is slightly larger. As the Magic Bullet is larger, it’s more powerful than the NUTRiBULLET.
The Magic Bullet, then, is a great alternative to the NUTRIBULLET, if you are looking for something a bit cheaper and don’t mind the blender being slightly larger.
If you are looking for a blender that is truly top-of-the-range, look no further than the Tefal Perfectmix. This blender has a whole host of functions and settings, allowing you to specify whether you want to make smooth soup or chunky soup, or crush ice. It can even heat your mixture for you.

It’s easy to clean and repairable for ten years, allowing you to use it for a long time. If you’re serious about cooking, this is the blender for you.
Of course, not every blender needs to cook or create soups with varying levels of viscosity. This is where the Russell Hobbs blender comes in. It’s reliable, it can go fast or slow and is, most importantly, very affordable.
If you’re looking for a blender that does what it says on the tin and blends, then you can’t go wrong with the Russell Hobbs blender.
The Philips blender is a great mid-range option, if you want something between the Russell Hobbs and the Tefal Blenders. It has a dial that controls the speed at which you blend your fruit and vegetables and has a capacity of 1.25 litres.

The blender also comes in a chic black design that will look great in any kitchen, so you can blend great food in style.
Similar to the Tefal Perfectmix, this is a particularly high-end blender. It has a stylish red design and a huge capacity of 1.8 litres. In addition to that, it comes with five automatic programmes (one for ice, another for smoothies, and then three more for soups, desserts and cleaning).
While it is a little bit more expensive than some of the other blenders, you get more than what you pay for with its 30-year motor guarantee, allowing you to make great smoothies and soups for longer.
