1. Breville VBL062 – Value For Money

Introduction

Breville VBL062 Blend Active Personal Blender

View on Amazon

We start our list with a personal blender from one of the greatest firms in this particular series of products – at a surprisingly low price.

Designed for people with busy schedules and no time to waste, the Breville VBL062 Blend Active comes with a shaker bottle, allowing you to blend your drink and storm out for your hectic day – exactly what you need if free time, especially in the morning, is a mere dream for others.

One-touch blending action with angled stainless steel blades

Easy-clean, detachable, dishwasher-safe blades and blending bottles

Description

A mere glance and its design traits are easy to sport. Featuring a bright and flashy colour (which I love but others may find a bit… too much), an ergonomic grip and a surprisingly low weight, the Breville VBL062 is a breeze to clean, can be tossed in the dishwasher, it detaches in a blink of an eye and is very easy to use, with the manufacturing excelling in its one-touch operation – which, by the way, is quieter than ever.

Breville VBL062 has no problem in blending the toughest materials, such as ice or fully frozen vegetables, chunks of fruit or coffee beans – and all that in a just a few seconds. Just toss in whatever comes to mind (as far as its edible of course) and in less than a minute you will have a delicious, hearty and healthy smoothie! You can also make great soups from vegetables, or even hummus!

Among its most handy offers, its 600ml BPA-free blender bottle, which does remind us of a protein shaker – except this one is designed to prevent the buildup of food or powder particles on the edges. Everyone that has ever used a protein shaker knows well how nerve-breaking is the process of cleaning that stuff out again and again! You also prepare your drink directly in the bottle, negating any need to transfer it elsewhere.

The same is true for the additional bottle, which allows you to prepare an extra smoothie that will rejuvenate you later in the day. The best thing about them is that cool athletic looks, allowing you to sue them for your weekly workouts in the park or gym, place on the side of your backpack or bike cup holder. In the meantime, their lockable lid averts any awkward spills and the consequent mess in your car or clothes.

Last, we can’t but praise Breville’s price tag for this truly wonderful personal blender.

Pros
  • Prime quality at a surprisingly affordable price
  • Quieter than all its predecessors and most of its similarly-priced competitors
  • Very easy to use and clean
  • Efficient with hard materials, including ice, coffee beans and frozen foods
  • The drink is prepared directly in the bottle
  • Comes with an extra bottle
Cons
  • The colour may not suit everyone’s taste
  • Small wattage

Our Opinion

Where to start? Great one-touch operation, much less nose, mighty motor and grinding power – all at a very affordable price. Its wattage is a bit small, but if you plan to use it mostly for vegetables and fruits, it will prove more than adequate.

 

2. NINJA BL480UK Nutri

Introduction

NINJA BL480UK Nutri 1000W Blender with Auto-iQ

View on Amazon

Again, the next pick of our short personal blender list is meant for the busy ones, who still value their breakfast too much to venture out of the house without properly nourishing their body.

The Ninja BL480UK is just ideal for smoothie lovers that wish to make their life as easier as possible. Featuring a dedicated smoothie maker, it comes with Auto-IQ, that is preset programmes activated with a simple push of a button and designed to produce your favourite beverages exactly as you like them. The added manual pulse and Start/Stop modes make dips, dressings, batters and desserts preparation a breeze, whereas the motor boasts a 1,000W might, grinding fruits, seeds, vegetables and ices in just a few seconds.

Energy Efficiency ClassA++ to G
Special FeaturesBlending drinks straight into the Nutri Ninja Cup – equipped with a Travel Lid

Pre-set Auto-IQ Programmes for Extra Speed and Quality

Patented Pro Extractor Blades

Description

First, we must comment on its size and weight, since it is slightly bulkier and heftier than most of its competitors. On the other hand, it certainly seems (and indeed is) much sturdier too, equipped with base suckers for minimum vibration during operation. The base also features a nice black and silver finish, with a front touchpad.

Operation-wise, it has four buttons, namely Pulse, Start/Stop, Blend and Ultra Blend, circling a timer display counting down or up, depending on the selected operation mode.

The BL480UK comes with two cups, the standard 650ml one and an extra 500ml one. You also get a Pro Extractor blade unit, with two pairs of angled blades projecting up and out and a pair of central blades, screwing into the cups as soon as they’re filled. Then, the whole system twists and locks into the base, activating the display and signalling you to press the button of your selection and start blending.

Note though that you cannot use it to hot food or dry ingredients – but this is not why one would buy it in the first place.

As soon as your drink is ready, just top the cup with its screw-in flip-top lid and you are ready to go and enjoy it whenever and wherever you wish. True, these lids seem a bit tricky at first (since they screw into the cups’ interior), but you will soon get the hang of their use. The spout cover though could extend a bit more and make drinking easier – but nothing is perfect in life.

There is a thing about the initial fitting of blades, because of their length, but everything becomes easier after the first time. Its mighty 1000-watt motor grinds anything that stands between solid ice and fruits and vegetables, always in less than 50 seconds, producing a thick, thoroughly blended smoothies, without traces of uncut ingredients.

Washing it is pretty simple and easy; besides, all its food-contacting parts can be placed in the dishwasher safely. Just mind the blades, for they are really sharp. The manufacturer could provide us with a cleaning brush.

Included in the package is a small book with no less than thirty recipes, with concise instructions on how to mix ingredients and get the best possible results, regarding both taste and nutritional value.

Pros
  • Great preset programmes
  • Excellent manual operation
  • Food-related parts can be placed in the dishwasher
  • Mighty motor
  • Produces brighter and smoother drinks, with much less foam
Cons
  • It could use a cleaning brush
  • Spout cover should extend more
  • No hot food or dry ingredients

Our Opinion

Sturdy, effective, easy to use and wash, what more can you ask for your daily smoothie blender?

 

3. NutriBullet Rx – The Best Choice

Introduction

NUTRiBULLET Rx Blender and Food Processor

View on Amazon

NutriBullet RX is by far the best personal blender ever designed by this firm. Meeting the ever-growing needs and wants of modern consumers, the NutriBullet RX N17-1001 boasts a formidable torque guaranteeing the prime pulverizing of anything you can imagine as a smoothie ingredient, from tender vegetables and ripe fruits to hard-core nuts and ice.

The best thing about it though is that it is designed to make soups and sauces – a trait its predecessors lacked.

Note also that it features a free-hand smart technology and exceptionally easy operation.

NutriBullet RX Cups, Pitcher & Lids Are Dishwasher Safe

Large Pitcher & Oversized Cup (Ideal for Families)

Description

NutriBullet RX integrates a power base, cups, the extractor blade and the soup blaster, which is a new addition to the NutriBullet series. In total, you will find ten different parts in the package. Note that due to its multiple uses, it requires careful reading of the user’s manual to operate it properly.

With an automatic start and a 7-heat cycling (for soups and sauces), the NutriBullet Rx N17-1001 boasts a mighty 2.3 horsepower, as well as an innovative hands-free smart technology, making its use and operation even easier than older models. Unfortunately, the sound is a bit loud, but nothing that could be described as annoying.

The extractor blade, designed to extract the juice from vegetables and fruits, it is powerful and sturdy enough to break dried fruits, nuts or ice. There is also a blade remover that allows to safely remove the blade in case it gets stuck or needs some rinsing.

Next, we have the Souper blast pitcher, designed to extract ingredients for soup making. Its vented lid allows heat and pressure to outflow, and the pitcher’s spout turns serving into a breeze.

Contrary to most of its competitors, the NutriBullet RX comes with two cups, a small one, for tasting or serving small quantities, and a much bigger for uses that demand bigger quantities. Note that the small cup has a resealable lid with a twist and lock mechanism for fridge storing and moving around without spills. The pitcher’s lid is another handy accessory, guaranteeing proper hygiene, transportation and storage.

Last, as you will instantly find out, all food-contacting parts are very easy to clean.

Pros
  • Smart free-hands technology
  • Ideal for smoothies, soups and sauces alike
  • Easy to use and clean
  • Great Wattage
  • With two cups
Cons
  • A bit noisy

Our Opinion

NutriBullet RX is the firm’s crown jewel so far, delivering amazing smoothies, excellent soups and tasty sauces and boasting a truly great torque power, reasonable ranks among the three best personal blenders available in the market this year.

A Concise Personal Blender Buying Guide

The purchase of a kitchen appliance is, or rather, should never be, the result of whim, particularly if you wish to use it on a daily basis.

A personal blender can be the best ally for your health and looks, as long as you pick one that indeed meets your needs and wants. Below you will find some useful tips on what to consider before making your choice. 

  • Vegetables and fruits are an important part of a healthy diet, and variety is as important as quantity.
  • No single fruit or vegetable provides all of the nutrients you need to be healthy. Eat plenty every day. – Harvard School of Public Health
  • Its Size & Accessories

Most personal blenders come with a single cup – those that have a pair or more usually feature bigger size, especially in their base. So, the first thing to consider is how much space you have available in your kitchen top. The compacter the personal blender is the better, yet you shouldn’t sacrifice efficiency or performance over size.

If you have to prepare smoothies just for yourself or your spouse, things are simpler. But if you have to tend for the needs of your several children, or generally of more than four or five persons, you should consider buying a standard-sized blender. The bigger personal blenders available today cater to the needs of no more than three persons.

Accessories are also an important factor but do not fall in the trap of sheer numbers. Sometimes manufacturers include in the package all sorts of useless or barely useful bells and whistles in an effort to convince the buyer of how ‘reasonable’ the price is. Check them out carefully; make sure you understand what each accessory is meant for and see whether you really need it or ever use it. Otherwise, you will just pay for the same stuff at a premium, getting no real value in return.

  • Its Speed

When it comes to speed, the more settings the better, especially if you plan to use your personal blender not just for smoothies, but for soups, milkshakes and sauces too. Besides, not all vegetables, fruits or other ingredients require the same torque or speed during blending. A pulse button would be a welcome addition too.

  • Its Power

While 300-500 watts are generally considered pretty adequate for the typical workload of a personal blender, really tough materials require a much bigger wattage. If you plan to consistently use really hard nuts or ice, better pick a personal blender of more than a thousand watts.

  • Its Price

The price should, in this case, be considered last; you don’t want to buy anything that would come sort of your needs, just to save ten or twenty pounds. Besides, personal blenders are much cheaper than standard ones and price seldom is an issue. So, take some time to consider your needs and wishes and then spot the personal blender that will get the job done.
