Between your coffee maker, microwave, and pressure cooker, small kitchen appliances can add up quickly. But if you’ve been cutting corners by buying the cheapest blender on the market, it might be time to reconsider. Here’s why a decent blender, like this model from Blendtec, is worth the investment:
1) It’s for more than just smoothies.
Morning smoothie fans will still get their fix with this high power Blendtec blender, but a quality blender can also do so much more. This model allows you to blend cold fresh ingredients into soup that’s hot and ready to eat using the power of friction. Or, switch up your breakfast routine by quickly blending pancake, waffle, muffin, or crepe batter. Blendtec machines can also handle thick dough for homemade bread or pizza. Need even more motivation? This blender is perfect for frozen margaritas and other cocktails.
2) It eliminates frustration.
Everyone who has ever owned a cheap blender knows the frustration of ingredients constantly getting stuck thanks to a weak motor and dull blades. Blendtec’s patented blade is 80% thicker and 10 times stronger than other blender blades so you’ll never have to chop or dice produce before you blend or water down your favorite soups, sauces, hummus, and smoothies.
3) It’s self-cleaning.
The worst part of using a blender is cleaning around blades and scrubbing to make sure no food residue is left behind. Investing in a high-quality blender has a major perk. The Blendtec is self-cleaning. Just add a little soap and water and the BPA-free 90-ounce jar will clean itself in less than a minute.
