The Best Blenders for 2018: Take Your Nutrition to the Next Level!

Posted by

Hi everyone, and welcome to our Best Blenders for 2018 Buyer’s Guide. We’re so glad you found us here because one of our editors, Michael, was once a sous chef as well. This makes us absolutely thrilled to present you with one of our favourite kitchen appliances for health-nuts: the almighty blender!

For those of you wanting to cook at home more and make delicious, hearty, healthy and incredible home-made foods, a blender may just be the perfect solution for you.

You’ll be able to whip up delicious smoothies and so much more in virtually an instance – all with very little cleanup work!

For the majority of people out there, we recommend a blender in the sub-$100 range due to the budget-friendly nature and the feature-set you will find. Of course, there will be people requiring more power but that simply won’t be the case for most people.

Unless you’re crushing up diamonds and pieces of metal, the sub-$100 price range will probably be your most budget friendly price category, and the pricier units will offer some more functionality and features if you’re looking for a more pro-grade blender or simply one with more demolishing power.

For More Serious Blending:

To Crush and Demolish Anything in Sight:

So you’re thinking of buying a blender so you and your family can enjoy some more healthy and nutritious meals on the cheap – and that’s commendable. So many people out there today just don’t cook wholesome foods for themselves, let alone their families, and that’s just not something we condone here.

Michael, one of our top editors, was once a sous chef and has been a fitness expert for over 17 years so if anyone knows a thing or two about diet and exercise it’s him – and let us begin showing you around all of the various blender options available to you on the market in 2018.

There are a handful of considerations to keep in mind when buying a blender, but luckily they’re pretty straightforward.

Some things to consider would be:

  • What are you planning on doing with your blender
  • What kinds of foods do you plan on preparing
  • Do you need a lot of power to chop up heavy duty items or can a more sanely priced blender do the trick for you
  • Do you prefer glass jars or is plastic alright with you
  • Are you okay with having a blender that is very loud
  • Are you looking for a blender that’s just right for a couple of people or are you in need of a blender capable of doing a big job at once 

These are all things to think about when making your purchasing decision. Of course, a lot of this is going to come down to your own personal budget, and you definitely do not need to spend more than $100 at most on a device unless you’re planning on blending the Rocky Mountains for dinner.

More expensive devices are great for professional use such as kitchens and food service facilities, but sometimes they come in handy at home too.

As we know, many hardened foods provide a lot of nutrition as well, and attempting to blend those ingredients up in an El Cheapo blender is sure to leave you angry, frustrated and ultimately dissatisfied with your purchase.

Part I: Best Blenders Under $100

Alright so let’s kick off this article with the sub $100 price range which we think that you’re really going to love. In this price range you’re definitely going to be able to get something that spiritually going to be able to crush anything that you put inside of it making it a very suitable option for your general purpose countertop blender for everyday use.

Although you’re not going to get earth-shattering performance and the ability to shatter the hardest diamonds in the world, you’re still going to be getting a very usable device and the closer you get to the $100 upper price limit the better of a device you’re going to be able to get.

Now, although this price range is not really suitable for heavy repeated use crushing up the most difficult of ingredients, something in this price range iis going to serve you very well for daily use if you’re making smoothies, making drinks for your friends on the weekend, crushing up some ice, blending nuts, seeds, frozen fruits and other things like that.

If you want the ability to chop up some heavy duty ingredients fairly frequently, we definitely recommend checking out the next price range which would be $100 to $300 or even our over $300 price range as well.

Without further ado, let’s Jump Right In so you can learn all about the best sub $100 blender options!

KitchenAid KSB1570SL 5-Speed Blender

Editor’s Score:

Similarly to the KitchenAid above, the KSB1570SL also offers up an impressive feature-set although we do believe that #4 above will be an overall better purchase. It would come down to which one is currently on sale for us to make our own personal final decision.

Jamba Appliances 2.4 HP Blender

Editor’s Score:

The Jamba Appliances 2.4 HP Blender is one of the most beautiful machines we’ve seen with its metallic space grey base and black accents and we love that this jar is as large as it is. It’ll be as easy as ever to feed the whole family with its 64 ounce capacity!


Keep up with the most eclectic of recipes with this chopper, juicer, crusher and more. We love the stainless steel blades and the all-metal construction, and this machine’s versatility is nearly second to none and we think you’ll love it too!

#3: MengK Professional Blender

MengK Professional Blender

Editor’s Score:

Even though our MengK Professional Blender is somewhat of an unknown brand, we decided very carefully to include this machine on our list this year due to the overwhelmingly positive user reviews on major online retailer websites.


With that said – you still get one of the nicest looking designs on the block and an immensely powerful 2000 watt motor capable of destroying anything on this planet besides maybe diamonds or something like that.

The extra-large 64 ounce container will make creating batches of foods a breeze and the blades spin at an impressive 250mph to thoroughly release all of the important nutrients into whatever you’re preparing.

What we don’t like:

  • The machine is not dishwasher safe, but the same can be said for many (if not most) commercial-grade blenders.

#4: Elechomes CHS2001 High Speed Blender

Elechomes CHS2001 High Speed BlenderEditor’s Score:

As somewhat of an oddball, we’ve never even heard of Elechomes before setting out to create this guide, but we thought we’d give them a chance with their CHS2001 High Speed Blender due to their incredible warranty and their 30-Day money back guarantee in case you don’t like it. What other manufacturer does that?! 


As a foodie himself, our editor Michael is always in tune with the best kitchen gear especially as a fitness enthusiast who also cooks many of his own meals. We can therefore safely recommend this device because it spins at 30,000RPM making it possible to release all important nutrients into your food as you blend them together.

The jar is food-service grade and is FDA approved and BPA-free for peace of mind. You will also get a full LED digital display to make using this machine a breeze, and the 68-ounce jar will allow you to make larger batches for simplicity. As with many pro-grade blenders, this machine is also not dishwasher safe.

#5: Ninja BL770 Mega Kitchen System
With Blender, Food Processor and Nutri Ninja Cups

Ninja BL770 Mega Kitchen System

Editor’s Score:

If you;re at all familiar with blenders, chances are that you’ve heard of Blendtec, Vitamix and Ninja – and our Ninja BL770 is our favourite blender of all time (very closely nearly-tied with the Blendtec Total Blender Classic below). We almost didn’t choose this as our top pick winner, but alas, we did.


With a remarkable 1500 watts of pure annihilating power and a 72 ounce container, there virtually is nothing you cannot do with this machine. You’ll also be getting a food processing bowl attachment (8 ounce) so this machine can easily double as your food processor as well.

The BPA-free jar design is Tritan food-grade certified and is fully dishwasher safe. Not only that, you also get 2x 16-ounce Nutri Ninja cups in which you can directly make your drinks… and take them on the road with you for extreme convenience!

#6: Blendtec Total Blender Classic

Blendtec Total Blender Classic

Editor’s Score:

Ahh… we can already hear you thinking. We bet you were wondering when we’d finally feature a Blendtec blender on this list! Well, we’re coming right at you with the incredible Blendtec Total Blender Classic. The name speaks for itself – go into any juicing or smoothie shop and you’re almost 99% sure to find one of these beasts residing in there.


If you’ve ever purchased a smoothie from BoosterJuice or similar places, chances are pretty high that your drink was made in the Total Blender Classic. Its industrious design and commercial-grade components make this one of the best machines to buy year after year.

The 1560 watt commercial motor will make quick work of even the hardest of ingredients and the BPA-free Tritan jar is food-service grade allowing for peace of mind while you feed your family.

If you’re a small food-service shop owner or a restaurateur in need of a reliable machine, this could even be good enough for that purpose as well.

We especially love the 6 different program options, the fact that Blendtec is made in the United States (not abroad) and the easy-clean touch button system allowing for a very easy decision to purchase this machine. The price point isn’t too bad either and we really think you can’t go wrong with any Blendtec options.

Just note that if you can find a second-hand one of these on Amazon, you might be able to save yourself a few bucks and we’re not too concerned about warranties either because of their reliability!

Key Features:

  • One of our absolute favourites on this entire list this year
  • Blendtec has been an industry-standard for professional and consumer-grade blenders for as long as we can remember (along with Vitamix)
  • Almost 1,000 perfect reviews across major online retailers
  • Commercial-grade 1,560 watt motor with 3 peak HP to annihilate any and all ingredients
  • BPA-free Tritan jar with cold-forged wingtip blades
  • Features 6 programmed blending cycles: batters, Ice Crush, Smoothie, Whole Juice, Hot Soup and Ice Cream
  • Easy-Clean touch button operation ensures seamless cleaning without getting food stuck in the crevices
  • Fully US-made
  • Has a very vast array of capabilities including making baby food, sorbets
  • Can replace many kitchen appliances including juicers, bread makers, mixers, coffee grinders removing the necessity to have multiple kitchen appliances for a clutter-free kitchen
  • Power: 1560 watts
  • Jar Size: Extra Large
  • Extras: N/A
  • Warranty: [Residential Only] 7-Year Warranty

Everything in this price-range is of top-notch quality, and we’ve done our due-diligence to only provide to you the best possible options in our opinion.

We don’t want to see anyone buying a machine they ultimately won’t be happy with and if you go after any one of our recommendations, we fully personally stand behind any of your choices.

If you have any questions, concerns, or even problems after you’ve purchased an item, please never hesitate to get in direct contact with our editor using the Contact Form at the bottom of our website. We want to make sure our readers are happy!

Let’s jump in to Part III 🙂

Part III: Best Blenders Over $300

All right, if you’ve made it this far then chances are that you’re looking for the most power that you can possibly get out of a blender so that you can use it daily and repeatedly while having the reliability and durability of a commercial grade blender.

In this price range you’re only going to be finding the highest quality, most powerful units and you’re also going to be looking at getting some incredible warranty periods, build quality, materials used, craftsmanship, design, beauty and functionality that you just cannot get in the cheaper price ranges.

As we talked about above, one of our editors Michael used to be a sous chef for many years you can personally vouch for every single selection on this list since pretty much any one of these would have been directly used by him. Two of my favorite blender manufacturers are Vitamix and Blendtec and we have nothing but the most incredible praise for these machines.

Let’s jump right in so you can find out exactly what you’re going to be getting should you decide to spend this much on a blender.

Vitamix Professional Series 750 Brushed Stainless Steel Blender

Vitamix Professional Series 750 Brushed Stainless Steel Blender

Ending this article off with this last section, Part III, we just want to emphasise the fact that you definitely do not need to spend this much money on a quality machine.

What you will be finding in this price range are machines that are able to withstand heavy and repeated use, they can chop harder substances and foods and can be used over and over again with longer warranty periods even for commercial types of settings.

For the average home cook requiring a great blender, it really comes down to how much money you’re willing to spend. If you want your machine to last you for your entire life, this is the price-range for you for sure and you certainly won’t be disappointed.

Make sure to read until the end of Part III for a very special Honourable Mention – one of our personal all-time favourite blenders.

Let’s get Part III started – and, with that – this article wrapped up!

#1: Vitamix 5200

Vitamix 5200

Editor’s Score:

You might be noticing a trend here: We have a lot of Vitamix blenders in this article and that’s for a good reason. The same can be said about Blendtec. These two players are virtually the top dogs in this price-range and this is because they are the most notorious and well-made machines in existence. 

When you purchase the Vitamix 5200, you are getting all of the benefits Vitamix has to offer and you’ll find out exactly why we think you’ll love this machine by clicking “CONTINUE READING”.


We thing that this is hands down one of the best blenders on the market today, and this is in-part because of its massive 64 ounce jar and powerful motor. It shares quite a few similarities to other Vitamix blenders in this price-range and this is a good thing – for a little less money, you still get that Vitamix reliability that these machines are sought after for.

In terms of functionality, you still get the friction-heat capability allowing you to, for example, heat up soup from dead-cold as you blend it removing the need to externally heat it afterwards and the BPA-free Tritan jar is fully food-service grade for peace of mind.

Learn more below!

Key Features:

  • Comes in at a slightly more palatable price-point than its Pro 750 counterpart (at certain times)
  • You get the same 64 ounce jar that the 750 has as well
  • This machine is capable of producing friction heat just like the 750 above allowing you to heat up soups as you make them without needing to separately heat it up on a stove top
  • This machine is powerful enough to pulverise and annihilate virtually any and all ingredients
  • You can easily adjust the speed settings to create a variety of different textures based on the foods you’re making
  • After everything is said and done, everything else is virtually identical to its Pro 750 counterpart aside from having the instructional DVD and Cookbook included
  • It also features a slightly weaker motor at just 2.0 HP instead of the 750’s 2.2 HP motor
  • You also do not get the Tritan food-service grade jar with this unit which is decent enough for home use, but not recommended for commercial food service usage
  • Ships in a few different colours
  • Power: 2.0 HP
  • Jar Size: 64 ounce extra large size
  • Extras: Instructional DVD; Cookbook
  • Warranty: 7-Year Warranty

These are all incredible machines and we didn’t want to leave any of them out. Just drop us a quick line if you have any questions and we’ll do our best to get back to you within 24 hours!

#2: Blendtec Designer Series Blender

Blendtec Designer Series Blender

Editor’s Score:

Mention Vitamix in an article about blenders and you’ll be sure to find something about Blendtec as well – and that’s because both these guys trade blows in terms of the top overall spot for the best blenders. Our Blendtec Designer Series Blender is probably one of not only our own favourite blenders of all time – the general public seems to agree as well, and maybe you will too!


Taking into consideration Blendtec’s status of one of the top 3 blender makers, their Designer Series brings a lot to the table including an absolutely crushingly powerful 1560 watt motor producing 3.0 HP to demolish anything that it comes into contact with.

You also get a BPA-free Triton polyester jar with Blendtec’s patented cold-forged wingtip crushing blades that are made from stainless steel. The included recipe book contains over 200 recipes allowing you to learn about all the functionality you can get out of this machine (in case you’re not sure of everything you’ll be able to do).

Key Features:

  • Blendtec is one of the most trusted blender manufacturers in the world with decades of experience
  • The commercial-grade 1,560 watt blender produces a whopping 3 HP to virtually obliterate any foe standing in its path

  • This motor is the most powerful at-home blender motor in existence
  • The touchpad control panel allows for the easiest operation we’ve ever seen in a blender unit

#3: Vitamix TurboBlend

Vitamix TurboBlend

Editor’s Score:

You’re probably starting to see a trend here – we’re often trading blows between Vitamix and Blendtec, and the Vitamix TurboBlend is yet another one of our absolute favourite machines on this year’s list. Let’s dive a little deeper so you can get a sense of why that is.


Bold, big, beautiful – those are just three of the words we’d use to describe this unreal machine. From the 2 HP motor to the 64 ounce jar, the stainless steel hammermill and cutting blades and the machine’s ability to heat up your food while you blend it are just a few teasers into why we love this machine.

Coming in with a whopping 5-year warranty, the TurboBlend is sure to make you and your family not only happy, but healthier once you have this bad boy in your possession. Learn more below.

Key Features:

  • This is one of our more budget-friendly options in this price-range but still packs a very powerful punch for the money
  • Made by Vitamix – one of the most trusted blender brands
  • 2.0 HP motor for durability and power to bust through anything
  • Classic ultra-large 64 ounce jar is great to make larger batches of stuff
  • 2 speed settings – high and low in order to control how you process whole fruits and veggies
  • Laser-cut, stainless steel hammermill and cutting blades ensure a fantastic blend
  • Heat up your food while you make it such as soups – remove the need to heat these items separately!
  • On-sale for a limited time (as of January 23, 2018)
  • All else is shared with other Vitamix models which you can read about above
  • Power: 2.0 HP
  • Jar Size: 64 ounce
  • Extras: N/A

#4: Vitamix Professional Series 750
Brushed Stainless Steel Blender

Vitamix Professional Series 750 Brushed Stainless Steel Blender

Editor’s Score:

You can expect only the finest craftsmanship, build quality, design, functionality and reliability from Vitamix and their Professional Series 750 is one of their most renowned products. Found in virtually any smoothie shop around the world, this little beast is capable of some serious blending power and we think you’ll fall in love with it!


Who is Vitamix? Vitamix are American-based and produce all of their equipment right in the US. Now, whereas Physique Authority is Canada-based, we still like to see items being produced within North America – not China or some other off-shore place.

You’re getting a 2.2 HP motor which will just embarrass any ingredients you put to the test against this machine and the stainless steel blade will make sure it is always up to the task.

The 64 ounce BPA-free Eastman Tritan jar will deliver some serious food-grade performance that can handle pretty large loads of foods as well and never miss a beat in terms of functionality with the included instructional DVD and cookbook to teach you about all of its functions.

Key Features:

  • New and upgraded pro 750 model released in 2016 offers a significant upgrade to its predecessor
  • The 120-Volt, 2.2 HP motor will deliver astonishing performance for any foods or settings
  • You’ll be getting an incredible stainless steel blade with a BPA-free 64 ounce Eastman Tritan copolyester jar that is food-service grade
  • Features 5 programmed settings for convenience
  • You also get a full DVD explaining exactly all of the functionality this thing is capable of (in case you’re unfamiliar with a blender of this calibre’s true potential)
  • A full cookbook to give you recipe ideas and further showcase how you can use this thing
  • When you make soups, you can heat it up while you’re blending it up – hot soup without using a burner!
  • You can make frozen desserts directly in this machine using frozen ingredients – enjoy ice cream, sorbets and much more
  • Grinding coffee, tiny nuts and everything in between is a breeze with this machine
  • Ability to mix batters and doughs
  • All of this device’s functionality can easily replace many of your already-present appliances reducing kitchen clutter
  • Easy to clean – simply add one drop of wash-up liquid into some warm water, and blend for 30-60 seconds
  • Power: 2.2 HP
  • Jar Size: 64 ounce extra large size
  • Extras: Instructional DVD; Cookbook
  • Warranty: 7-Year Warranty

#5: Breville BBL910XL Boss Easy to Use Superblender

Breville BBL910XL Boss Easy to Use Superblender

Editor’s Score:

Although this is one of the ugliest machines we’ve personally ever seen and it only features a pathetic 1-year warranty, we thought at least that some features would be something of interest to you – because they are to us. Let’s have a look below.


From the 2 HP motor to the overwhelmingly positive user reviews on major retailer websites, we have really no issue recommending this device at all. And if you’re not pulverising granny’s diamond rings for tomorrow night’s supper, its 1-year warranty will surely suffice.

The ProKinetix blade and bowl will pretty much guarantee that anything in its sight becomes demolished and the large LCD backlit display will make using this machine a treat and a breeze. 

You’re also getting a BPA-free Tritan food-service grade jar for added comfort and to know that you purchased an overall awesome machine. We just think it’s very ugly.

Key Features:

  • One of the most highly-praised blenders in this price-range
  • 2 HP motor ensures the ability to blend anything and everything
  • Includes five simple one-touch programs: smoothie, green smoothie, frozen dessert, soup, pulse and ice crushing which makes it easy to get the perfect texture
  • ProKinetix blade and bowl ensure that virtually any combination of ingredients get adequately pulverised for the smoothest possible outcome
  • Large backlit LCD display makes it easy to operate and read everything that’s going on
  • Includes a timer functionality for setting-and-forgetting operation
  • Dedicated cleaning function ensures a very user-friendly experience
  • BPA-free Tritan food-service grade jar for peace of mind
  • Power: 2.0 HP
  • Jar Size: Extra large
  • Extras: N/A
  • Warranty: 1-Year Warranty

What we don’t like:

  • It’s ugly!
  • It only ships with a 1-Year Limited Warranty which is not as long as other options above.

Honourable Mention:
Blendtec Stealth 885

Blendtec Stealth 885

This is not a blender. This is a demolition machine, and it’s certainly not created for the feint of heart. And this is NOT something you want in your house or on your kitchen counter – no, this is a machine capable of producing 200 cycles per day, repeatedly, day after day, hour after hour for years.


This machine is certain to get any professional, commercial blending job done – and tons of little jobs everyday, all day long. You’ll find this in a professional juicing shop or smoothie operation like DQ or something like that. 

The insane 3.8 HP motor and the 3-quart jar are built for durability and repeated abuse, and we just thought it’d be fun to include this as one of our most desirable commercial-grade blender on the market. Check the features below for more details!

Key Features:

  • One of the biggest units and most powerful units on our list with 1800 watts of power
  • This is a commercial-only blender not suitable for home use
  • Absolute overkill for somebody using this at home
  • Peak power is 3.8 HP which absolutely demolishes anything it comes into contact with
  • This blender is recommended for those seeking to have 200 or more blending cycles done per day which is NOT someone at home
  • Includes 42 preprogrammed cycles, pulse and manual speed
  • If you’re running a smoothie or juice shop, this machine will have an excellent ROI due to Blendtec’s second to none reliability and trust
  • Includes WildSlide+ patented 5-sided jar
  • Total capacity is about 3 quarts
  • Includes a tactile interface with Blend Wizard
  • An absolute beast-mode machine for the serious shop owner or restaurateur that relies heavily on blending capabilities
  • Power: 1560 watts or 3.0 HP
  • Jar Size: Approximately 3 quarts
  • Warranty: 3-Parts & Labour and freight (no limits on the number of cycles)

  1. Wow, this is a great detailed explanation of blenders at every price point. This is great for learning the features and how much it will cost. I personally believe in buying the best blender possible because I learned personally when I purchased cheaper ones, they break down within a year or so. Thanks for the information!

    1. Hi Jacquie, I couldn’t agree more. It’s not the expensive, quality purchases we regret in life, it’s the cheap stuff we bought that doesn’t work as expected which is frustrating. Glad you enjoyed the article!
