Blender Reviews of the Best Blenders and
I remember when my cheap little blender broke. The engine just kind of puttered along and then I heard this horrible grinding sound. It was especially irritating because I had all my smoothie ingredients ready to go and I was really thirsty. Of course I had to dump everything out and just eat the fruit in a bowl. And the blender was done. I unscrewed all of the pieces and one of the gears on the inside was just stripped.
The blender was about $30 so it wasn't really worth my time to send it back and try to get a replacement. That was my third blender in a row to blow up after a couple of months. At that point I decided I had had enough. It was time to sit down and do some serious research on blenders. I was fed up and tired of shelling out money for new blenders that were horrible. I needed to find the best blender.
If any of this sounds familiar, you are not alone. There are a ton of cheap, low quality, disposable blenders out there. If you read any of the reviews on sites like Amazon.com you will find many other people having to deal with the same problems; blenders breaking down, blenders not being able to blend even the most basic ingredients, and blenders lasting only a few months.
So how do you find the best blenders?
You can go and research all of the manufacturer sites yourself, like I did. You can look at all the consumer blender reviews and read thousands of owner reports, like I did. You can scroll through the reams of data and all of the scientific type testing on engines and carafes, and blades and rpm's and torque. You can do all of this to narrow down the list of a couple thousand different blenders down to ten or so that really stand out.
You can spend hours and hours researching, trying to find the best blender. But really, who wants to do that? I know you have better things to do with your time. You just want a blender that is going to deliver on your smoothie, not cost an arm and a leg, and not break down in 6 months.

I've done all the research for you and compiled a list of the best blenders (standard kitchen countertop models), the best personal blenders and the best hand blenders. I have put together comprehensive, objective blender reviews of all of the major makes and models. I tell you exactly what you should buy and what you should stay away from.
