Hurricane CBT-1500P1 by Cuisinart
Faster than its rivals, the Cuisinart Hurricane 2.25 HP Peak Blender produced dependably smooth smoothies and snow-like broken ice. It boasts tremendous power without a hefty price tag or extra-large footprint. This powerful countertop blender could easily tackle any task we threw at it despite having fewer presets and power options than its rivals. It doesn’t make any more noise than any of its rivals and often completes tasks faster.
The Cuisinart Hurricane produced a flawlessly smooth smoothie in one minute after pressing the Smoothie button, leaving no sign of the frozen fruit, almonds, raw kale, or flax seeds that had been added to the combination. A visible vortex guarantees that all materials are combined and draws them down. Also, the access port in the top made it simple to add additional liquid if a mixture was too thick to keep things flowing easily.
The Hurricane’s ability to smash ice was also genuinely amazing; in only five seconds, it turned four cups of ice into uniformly flaky snow. Although it is noisy, as are all blenders, it works so rapidly that you don’t have to listen to it for very long before it becomes annoying.
The low, high, and pulse modes provide adequate versatility for a variety of blending chores, while the Smoothie and Ice Crush presets perform well for their respective purposes. The 60-oz jar has ample capacity to blend for a large audience, and the programmed countdown timer comes in helpful for lengthy blending jobs like soup.
- swiftly produces silky smoothies.
- even ice crushing.
- logical controls.
- Jar and lid for blender are dishwasher-safe.
- few presets and speed choices
Ascent Series A3500 by Vitamix
The 2.2-horsepower Vitamix A3500 is the finest pro-style blender we’ve tested if you’re seeking to spend money on a durable blender that will last you years. The A3500 produced the creamiest squash soup, the silkiest nut butters, and the finest grain milling throughout testing in addition to producing the smoothest smoothies.
The touchscreen on the A3500 replaces the switches on its predecessors. Even a drop of water may activate the touchscreen, which is one of its many positive qualities. We also like how simple the controls are to use. You may adjust the blend’s intensity using the knob in the touchscreen’s centre, or you can select one of the five preset options (Smoothie, Sorbet, Soup, Spreads, and Self-Clean) that are shown above the knob.
It has all the features and extras you’d anticipate from a high-end blender, as well as Bluetooth connection, which connects this device to your phone. You may look through recipes, use the app’s extra presets (Baby Food, Ice Cream, and Nut Milk), and create shopping lists for upcoming mixes. The presence of a notch on the front of the pitcher facilitates pouring since liquid will initially come to a rapid stop upon entering the notch before flowing freely.
A soup or queso mix may take a little longer than other chores, therefore the customizable timer option enables users to take a break. The longest warranty offered by Vitamix is 10 years, and it is offered with this model.
The only aspect we find objectionable is how loud it can get. It is the quickest blender we’ve tried, making butternut squash soup in less than half the time of other blenders during testing, so we believe the loudness is justified given the greater outcomes.
- incredibly well blends
- extremely quick and strong
- logical controls
- renovated more cheap.
Blender Breville Super Q
The Super Q, a supercharged and super-quiet version of our previous winner from Breville, has every feature we want in a high-quality blender. This blender performed every duty we threw at it with ease, from blending beverages to finely grinding almonds. It can also change shapes; with the addition of presets and accompanying accessories, the Super Q quickly transforms into a food processor, ice cream maker, and personal blender.
The 68-ounce jar and svelte, simple appearance of the 12-speed Breville impressed us. Every button and knob felt comfortable in our fingertips, and the five built-in presets worked well. That’s because they are expressed in English; no deciphering of hieroglyphics or experimentation is required. Making “smoothies” and “green smoothies” are two different things. For those who like to prepare smoothies on the move, the included 24-ounce travel cup is ideal. We really adored the timer and fine setting settings on the digital display.
The Super Q is a good option if you want a quieter blender since, while it still generates noise while breaking up ice and chopping up difficult foods, it is considerably quieter than any other model we tested. Is there anything we dislike? The Super Q’s enormous base will occupy a significant amount of space on your countertop. But, this Breville is your best option if you’re searching for a high-quality, all-purpose blender that can replace a number of small kitchen gadgets and is less expensive than comparable models from Vitamix.
- extremely quick and strong.
- flexible and adaptable.
- quite quiet.
- large base.
While we appreciated the simple controls and unfussy look of this 1,800-watt blender—which was created by cooks for chefs—we weren’t entirely convinced of its blending capabilities. If you prefer to work fast in the kitchen, it’s quite simple to take the pitcher out of the base and put it back on the base when it’s time to mix. Nevertheless, there isn’t a click or lock-in-place sound, which may worry some people.
This blender was easy to use for chopping almonds, chocolate candies, and frozen strawberries, but it wasn’t effective when crushing ice. The Cleanblend struggled a little bit during the smoothie test since the last substantial bits of frozen strawberry required many pulses. The blender’s base remained relatively stationary during testing, and the pitcher also didn’t move about much that much.
It includes a 64-ounce BPA-free container, a tamper, a tiny rubber spatula, a nut milk bag, and a five-year warranty. Overall, we had a great time using this blender and believe many professional and home chefs would benefit from it.
- Simple to use.
- easy controls.
- fantastic at producing nut milk.
- Lock sound absent.
- Lack of kid protection.
- During usage, pitcher moves a little.
