Buying Guides: Blenders

Need a new blender and don’t know where to begin? Don’t worry, SHOP.CA has you covered!

If you’re looking for one of these compact, yet ultra-handy kitchen appliances there are a few things to consider before choosing the blender that fits your lifestyle. Let’s get started!


The Countertop Blender:

Countertop blenders are ideal all-purpose blenders. Their many speeds and features allow you to quickly and easily mix, chop, purée, or blend…and even crush ice. These models typically feature programmable touchpads, mechanical push-buttons, or toggle switches for power settings.

The countertop blender offers a range of pitcher sizes to suit your needs. Choose from a more durable and scent-proof glass pitcher, or a lighter, less costly plastic pitcher. Some countertops even offer a smaller, single-portion sized pitcher you can take with you on your commute.


The Personal Sized Blender:

Although hand mixers usually offer lower power, they are super convenient if you’re an on the go-smoothie enthusiast or salsa connoisseur looking to make a smaller serving that is still big on flavour!

The Handheld or Immersion Blender:

The handheld blender, also known as an immersion blender or stick blender, is a long, thin, and compact blender that is small in size, but can still offer many of the capabilities of its larger counterparts.

The handheld blender features a shaft with blades and/or attachments on the bottom, making it ideal for immersion in a bowl, jar, glass, or mug for mixing smoothies and drinks, pureeing, or creaming soups.

These blenders can be corded or cordless, but typically offer less power than a countertop blender. However, what the immersion blender may lack in power, it makes up for in compactness and portability.
