Designed to Deliver the Ultimate Blending Performance
When it comes to choosing a countertop blender, two important aspects many of us consider are how durable the blender is and how quickly and efficiently it can process food ingredients. With regards to the KitchenAid KSB1575MC, you get an excellent product which is great on both fronts. This countertop blender not only looks solid and durable with its heavy-duty stainless steel base. It actually provides the kind of performance you'd expect from a professional-grade blender. When put on the flat surface, it doesn't wobble nor does it vibrate so you can use it even on high settings without worrying that it might tilt or fall off the table. The advantage of it being made from stainless steel is not only that it provides enhanced stability during use, but also that it's highly hygienic and very easy to clean. The pitcher and the lid, both of which are made of high-quality BPA-free plastic, are dishwasher-safe and highly resistant to scratches and stains.
Packed With an Intelligent Option
The KitchenAid KSB1575MC houses a powerful 1500-watt motor, which, along with the brand-exclusive Diamond technology, lets the blender beat through any food ingredients. The blades of the KSB1575MC are super sharp and feature 4 angled tips pointed in different directions. Thanks to this unique design, the blades spin incredibly fast and can be used for doing even fine chopping. Our favorite feature in the KitchenAid KSB1575MC, however, is its Slow Start, due to which the blending speed increases gradually.
To maximize user’s experience, the housing of the blender contains 5 control buttons, making it easier to control the blending speed. Once you press a button, the sensors used in the blender will automatically calculate and customize its speed so you get the perfect blending results. It will take it only a few seconds to chop, mix, stir, puree foods, and convert solids into liquids. In addition to the 5 speed levels that we’ve mentioned, the KitchenAid KSB1575MC includes a Crush ice option for crushing ice cubes. This means you can use it not only for blending foods but also for preparing a variety of frozen desserts.
Hamilton Beach 58149
When choosing a kitchen appliance, we all want to get the best bang for our buck. A real bargain is when you get a device that unites the functionality of at least a couple appliances yet doesn't cost an arm and a leg. That's the description that fits the Hamilton Beach 58149. At a fraction of the cost, this blender provides the kind of functionality many market leaders cannot rival.
From the first glance, the Hamilton Beach 58149 doesn't look different from many other blenders on the market, featuring a standard design with a traditional base and a plastic blending pitcher. However, there are things that set it apart from the rest, with one of them being the fact that it offers 12 blending functions, enough for any mixing tasks. Another thing that is different is that it comes not with one but with two blending jars, so you can use different containers for different tasks. A bigger 5-cup pitcher works best for blending, stirring, mixing, liquifying, and emulsifying ingredients, while a smaller 3-cup bowl that combines straight-edged and serrated blades is ideal for chopping, grinding, dicing, grating and pureeing foods.
On top of multi-functionality that you'll rarely see in other blenders at this price point, the Hamilton Beach 58149 offers many convenience features. All controls are placed on the front panel. The buttons are intuitive and straightforward, each with the marking as to what function it is designed to perform. A large pitcher comes with a plastic lid that has a mess-free spout for spill-free pouring. The lids as we as the jars and the blades are dishwasher-safe. At the base of the blender, there are small rubberized feet that keep the unit stable on the table preventing it from accidental skidding during use. There's also a cord compartment where you can fold the power cord for space-wise storage of the appliance.
Before we wrap things up, let's say a few more words about Hamilton Beach's 58149 blender design. We did say there's nothing unique in it and the blender looks pretty standard. That's sort of true, in that it contains only traditional elements such as a base and a pitcher. This part aside, the design of the blender is far from what we'd call classy, with its heavy-duty stainless base and black inserts located on each side. A design like this will go well together with other appliances made of stainless steel, making it a solid choice for customers having some of these.
So, the Hamilton Beach58149 is not only a high-performance countertop blender which can be utilized for a plethora of blending tasks including ice crushing, it's also a highly modern and sophisticated appliance that will perfectly match your kitchen interior no matter its design concept.
Pulverize Ice and Frozen Fruits
The Ninja BL660 Professional Blender, as you'd infer from the name, is being advertised as a professional blender. But what is it exactly that differentiates a professional blender from a regular one? Well, in the case of this Ninja blender, the difference mostly lies in the amount of power. Given that the model features precisely 1100 watts of professional performance power, it should probably go without saying that it is capable of crushing any food item in a matter of seconds.
Not dissimilar to the majority of high-end Ninja blenders, this nifty kitchen appliance comes equipped with the Total Crushing™ blades and a set of different containers. First off, there's the 72 oz. Total Crushing® Pitcher. Though the name is slightly bombastic, it is also not inaccurate as it takes the blades mere seconds to pulverize frozen fruits and solid chunks of ice. Suffice it to say, these blades are simply perfect when it comes to ice crushing, blending, and controlled processing, meaning that you will be able to enjoy creamy frozen drinks and smoothies. A couple of 16 oz. Nutri Ninja Cups, on the other hand, will prove to be more suitable for preparing personalized, nutrient-rich drinks that you can always take with you. To help with the latter, the manufacturers also made sure to include a couple of to-go lids.
For You and Your Family
Now, while we're still on the subject of performance, we would also like to mention that, just like any other really good blender, the model includes three different speed settings that will allow you to make drinks and smoothies according to your preferences. And though the XL 72-ounce bowl capacity will obviously prove to be particularly great for making drinks and smoothies for the entire family, the blender also comes with a single-serve function, so you will just as easily be able to prepare a drink for yourself. The pulse function is also there, which is perfect for blending frozen ingredients and making things like salsa.
As for the appliance's composition, all parts are BPA free and the blades are made out of durable metal. The whole thing features about 8 x 6 x 17 inches in overall dimensions, so it isn't the smallest blender out there but it won't take away too much of your countertop space either. Though the model is not particularly difficult to operate, the company behind it still recommends referring to the user manual before you use the blender for the first time.
To rephrase our earlier point, the Ninja BL660 Professional Blender certainly deserves the title of a professional blender. It is a powerful appliance that will allow you to make drinks for the entire family as well as prepare delicious smoothies for yourself.

How it works:
What Is a Countertop Blender?
Nowadays there are many different kinds of kitchen blenders, which are created to carry out a great number of tasks, depending on your cooking aims. So if you are eager to cook a lot and to do it regularly - it will be reasonable to acquire the countertop blender. In case you are going to cook from time to time and in small portions - the immersion blender will be the perfect variant.
With the help of countertop blenders, you will have an opportunity to give a rest to your hands and to save time! These magic device does all the job automatically (whereas you have to hold immersion blender constantly while blending). Unlike the immersion blender, it helps to keep the neat view of your kitchen. You may ask “Why?”. The answer is simple “Because the countertop blender holds the splashes and sprays inside the cup”.
What Features to Compare
The Power is actually the key feature to pay attention to while selecting a blender. It influences the ability to vary cooking portions from large to small, as well as to pulverize various products from soft to hard. The more powerful blender is, the better it can blade hard food and cook large portions. So if you plan to make simple milk cocktails, the low powerful blender will be enough. And if you intend to blend ice into snow in order to put it into your cocktail - the powerful blender will be more suitable. Blending nuts or dried apricots is an easy task for countertop blender with the high power. But be attentive! The blender with the low power can hardly manage to do tasks.
The Blade Type actually signifies the complexity of task it can cope with. Thus, some blades of blenders are able to blend puree, soft fruits, and vegetables, while others can fulfill more difficult tasks, such as blending meat, liver etc.
The way the certain blender will fit in the kitchen is one more important factor. A particular color, Material and Design may refresh the whole interior of the room. It is also advisable to consider not only the design and cup capacity but also the material it is made of. The other important factors you have to pay attention to are - the weight and the durability of the product. The glass is ecologic and transparent, plastic is lightweight and convenient, while the metal is non-transparent and durable.
