Blender For Smoothies – Do you need one?

My Product Reviews

Making your favorite smoothie will require a blender that is powerful to blend frozen fruits and ice cubes. Blenders comes in different power capabilities and with a different manual blending setting. Therefore, it’s important to choose the best blender for making smoothies.

What power watt should a better blender have?

When buying a blender, it is essential to know the main features that differentiate one blender from another as to motor speed, control setting, and design. Based on my research, majority of household models of blender fall within 500 watts to 750 watts.

Manufacturers, usually indicate the blender motor speed in watts, and sometimes in horsepower– 1 horsepower equals 746 watts. Blenders, though have options range from 300 watts to as high as 1500 watts, still majority of household models fall within 500 watts to 750 watts. It also seems that high wattage blenders are more costly as compared to low wattage blender. This is also more likely to show that a more expensive blender equals a better blender.

Based on consumer reviews, it does contradict this idea. Different tests performed on various types of blenders and they found out that wattage has little connection with blender performance. This shows that the wattage number displayed by the manufacturer only measures the power consumed by the blender motor. And the power generated by the motor is what control the performance of the motor.

For as long as the manufacturer do not disclose any information, the only way to know which blender is the best is to read consumer reviews, that are readily available for different blenders out on the market.
