What exactly makes some of these blenders “professional”?
Typically, a professional blender is one you would find at your local Jamba Juice or Starbucks. A professional blender has better blend quality. They chop up finer ingredients like nuts and seeds, as well as the common fruits and such. The less your ingredients are chopped up, the higher chance of your recipe being chunky and bitter.
What is the difference between the glass jars and BPA Tritan Jars?
Most of the high-end blenders on our list are made from Tritan Copolyester. It’s BPA-free, lightweight, and far more durable than glass. They’re much easier to clean and will hold up in the long run. The reason the high-end manufacturers don’t use glass is because high vibrations from the motor could easily shatter the glass. It’s more a less a safety concern. If you ever see someone complaining about the plastic cups on a blender being cheap, now you know the reason.
With so many choices, how do I realistically pick the right blender for my needs?
You need to stop and think, what are your main recipes going to be. If you’re someone who is mainly whipping up smoothies and blended drinks, you’re going to need a blender with at least 500 watts of power and the ability to crush ice. If you’re a master chef and want to blend up nuts, seeds, and other hard ingredients, you’ll definitely need something higher-end with a solid chopping blade and processing functions. If you’re just looking to puree, stir, or mix different ingredients together, any cheap blender will do the job!
How do you separate the different types of blenders?
Blenders can be categorized into about 4 different types. High-performance models usually range from $300-700 and have ultra powerful motors and blades. Conventional models usually range from $50-150 and are great for low-intensity blending. Personal models usually range between $20-100 and are for people who are constantly on the go and want to take travel cups with them. Lastly, immersion models, not listed on our top because it is more a complement to your traditional blender, are usually $30-100 and are great, small devices for submerging directly into food to help stir, mix, and blend.
