Types of Blenders
1. Hand/Immersion Blenders
They are the most common type and often referred to as personal blenders. These models have stick like design with a comfort handle at one end to handheld the device and chopping blade at another end. Actually immersion and stick blenders are similar terms but slight variation can be present in power and ability based on the brand. Apart from that, there is no other relative difference between these blenders.
Based on your typical requirements, you have to choose the design of the blender i.e, corded or cordless. Usually hand blenders range from 7” long to 29” long.
Immersion blenders or hand blenders are suitable for blending soups, hot liquids, protein shakes, powdered milk, instant pudding and others. You can also use them for blending powders with liquids. The price range of hand blenders starts from Rs. 600 to Rs. 2500.
Benefits of Handheld Blenders:
- You can directly put them in the pot while cooking.
- As there will be no pressure build-up from steam, there are less chances of spilling the liquids over walls or kitchen counters.
- Less likely to result in any kinds of injuries or burns to related to spillage of hot liquid
- Easy to clean and most of them are dishwasher safe. Or else just blending hot water with some liquid detergent will do the trick.
Drawbacks of Handheld Blenders:
- As the blade is exposed, you have to maintain pressure on bottom for operating it properly.
- People with less hand strength may be feel exhausting
- Some blenders are capable of crushing ice while others are not suitable for blending liquids or mixing powders.
- They are not suitable for blending fruits with seeds. Though they can provide good result, you can experience seed’s texture while drinking the juice.
2. Single-Serve Blender
They are also known as bullet blenders or personal blenders. They have become quite popular because of Ninja range, Nutribullet and Magic Bullet. Though they are available in different sizes, they mostly have single or double serving capacity.
Their working mechanism is quite unique. The ingredients are placed into the bullet shaped container. Then you have to close it with the lid which contains a chopping blade. Now invert the container and place it on the blender base.
Single serve blenders have a simple and portable design. Their capacity ranges from 0.4 to 0.7 liters. And the jars are often used as drinking or travel mugs. When it comes to power consumption 200 to 400 watts is sufficient enough. But if you want to crush ice, then we recommend to go for 350 watts or more.
Originally, single serve blenders were used for making smoothies. You can just add frozen fruit, ice and some nuts to create a smooth drink. They can also be used for making pancake batter or whip up eggs for omelet.
Some people use it for preparing baby food as they can make puree within few minutes. The price range of single serve blenders range from Rs 500 to Rs 1000.
Benefits of Single Serve Blenders
- Speed is the main advantage of these blenders. They can quickly turn chunky ingredients into smooth liquid.
- There is no way to get in direct contact with blades, even children can use it without any worries.
Drawbacks of Single Serve Blenders
- Not every model is created equal. Some can crush chia seeds and raspberry seeds while others cannot.
- Leaking is one of the main issues with personal blender. Most of the times, this is caused due to improper attachment of blade to the container. By screwing the blade too tightly leakage can be stopped but it become difficult to remove the blade head again.
3. Portable Blenders
These blenders have a clear glass tube – one end of it is screwed into the blade base containing motor and the other ends is screwed into the lid. They are smaller than a typical hydro flask, light in weight and portable as well.
Some of these brands market in typical ways of using it like to make smoothies in the car. But most practical uses for this portable blender is in offices or after working out in gym for making smoothies or protein shakes. At single time, you can prepare 300 to 400ml of drinks and they consume less amount of power.
They are also suitable for mothers who want to make baby food on the go. You can easily take them in your diaper bag and go out. You can just add some veggies and water and the baby meal is available instantly. The price range of portable blenders starts from Rs 500 to Rs 1000.
Benefits of Portable Blenders
- Portability is the main advantage. The motor unit runs on rechargeable battery which can be charged up with standard USB charger.
- Light in weight and self-contained with no cables. So, you can move around while operating it.
Drawbacks of Portable Blenders
- As they are new to the market, common faults are yet to be discovered.
- as they are not usually used in the kitchen, leaking can be a concern so both ends have to be tightened.
4. Countertop Blenders
These blenders come with 1 to 2 liters of blending containers which are usually made up of plastic, stainless steel or glass. Glass blenders are usually more stable as they are heavy in weight. Plastic containers are prone to scratching and absorbing smell from the ingredients. Stainless containers are the most preferred ones but the visibility of food is not possible.
Usually, they have 700 to 2000 watt motor. Higher the motor efficiency, better the blending capability.
If you are opting for a model with removable blades, then make sure the containers come with o-ring or gasket between the base and body so that it seals and prevents leaking. Usually, the blender container is shaped to encourage the material for circulating through the blender instead of just spinning around.
One of the important things to check out whether are capable of blending hot liquids without spilling off. Most of the countertop blenders are suitable for blending cold or cool liquids as they have containers with tight lids.
The container is placed on the base which contains a motor and controls are present on the surface of the blender. Countertop blenders come with 3 to 16 different speed levels however higher speed levels settings doesn’t mean increased utility. Low powered blenders need some liquid for blending the ingredients into smooth paste. The blades will create a whirlpool effect for moving the solids from top to bottom. This will result in an even and smooth mixture. High powered speeds can grind tough ingredients like pulses, grains and ice.
You can use countertop blenders for making smoothies, milkshakes, frozen drinks, grinding, makes mayonnaise, sauce, blending vegetables, marinades, pureeing food and many others. Some all-purpose blenders can make green smoothies from fibrous vegetables as well. Price range of counter blenders start from Rs 3000 to Rs 6000.
Benefits of Counter Top Blenders:
- Similar to their size, these blenders are powerful which is why they can mix any food ingredients you can place into them. Multiple speed settings are provided with additional pulsing option.
- It provides lump free blending every single time.
- Very east to clean. All you have to do is just add few drops of liquid soap into the blender and some water. Now blend it for few seconds and it will be clean.
Drawbacks of Counter Top Blenders:
- Size can be a bigger concern as they are pretty bulky. If you have less kitchen counter space, then this is not a good option, especially if you are going to use it just couple of times in a month.
- Because of its size, sometimes people tend leave the spoon in it. If you do so, the noise generated by spoon can be alarming. And moreover, the blades can get damaged and container as well.
How to Choose the Best Blender?
Choosing a blender can be confusing task as there are several models available in the market. And moreover, blenders can last up to 10 years long, you have to be very careful while picking them. In our buying guide blenders, we have provided all the information required to analyze the products and make an informed choice. So, let’s get started…
Blenders are available in different sizes from 2, 6 to 14 cups. You have to choose the blender based on your requirements. However, you have to remember that – smaller the blender, less powerful it will be.
If you make personal smoothies a lot, then single serve blenders are suitable enough. If you travel a lot, then portable blender is the right choice as it will take less storage space and less cleaning effort as well. If you want to blend different kinds of ingredients like grinding pulses or crushing ice, it is better to choose countertop blenders. For people who prepare meals in advance or often cook of friends and family, it is better to invest in a large size blender.
- Standard Size – Usually, countertop blender containers or jars can hold up to 1 to 2 liters. So, it is suitable for preparing 6 to 9 glasses of juice or drinks.
- High Performance – Just like their bulky size, they have powerful motor as well. Some of them are capable of holding up to 4 liters.
- Individual Servings – Single server blenders can hold up to 0.2 to 0.7 liters capacity. They are not suitable for people who have a family or experiment with different flavors in kitchen.
This is one of the main aspects to look out for in a blender as it indicates longevity, reliability and durability. If the blender has low power range, then it may not be powerful enough to blend hard food ingredients. If the blender has higher power, it can blend ingredients into power within few minutes. So, it is always better to choose a blender with high power. For smoothies and juices, 400 to 500 watts is suitable but for commercial use or large families, 1000 – 1500 watts is suitable.
Below, are some of the suggestions regarding power range.
- 300 Watts – Most of the standard countertop blenders come in this power range. You will be able to blend most of the food ingredients except the hard ones.
- 400 to 700 Watts – Blenders with this power range are more versatile. It can be used to process soups and juices.
- Above 700 Watts – Blenders with above 700 Watts power range can grind even dry ingredients. With them, you can make peanut butter, grains into flour, and large quantities as well. However, they are expensive than other models.
Blenders are not only use for making juice or marinades but also capable of extracting proteins and vitamins into liquid form. So, the quality of the blender mainly depends on the blades quality. If you want to make salad dressing, sauces, smoothies, salads or juices, we recommend to go for X style blades.
For crushing ice cubes, pulses, coffee beans or any other hard food produce, wing style blade is suitable. Some of the blenders come with exchangeable blades making it perfect for both type of blending requirements. And moreover, they are easy to clean as well. When it comes to material, stainless steel blades are considered the best as they perform better and corrosion resistant as well.
Jars or containers or pitchers (where ingredients are added) are usually made up of plastic or glass. Compared to plastic, glass is a cheaper option. Apart from price factor, they are dishwasher safe. And moreover you don’t have to worry about the temperature of foods or utensils while blending.
But if the glass material is thin, then it may shatter of you mishandle it. So, glass jars are bit risky to maintain. On the other hand, thicker options are more sturdy but heavy as well.
As solution for these problems, some manufacturers use high end plastic jars. They are durable, light in weight, easy to maintain and durable as well. But some plastic jars are not dishwasher safe and quite expensive as well.
5. Speed Settings
For blending food ingredients into perfect smooth mixture, it is important to have different blending speeds. Because some food ingredients like carrots, radish or similar, require high speed to cut through the hard texture while others like tomatoes can easily be pureed at low speeds.
Other benefit of having different speed levels is – nice slow speed settings are perfect for delicate jobs like whisking and emulsifications. High speed settings are suitable for pulverizing or blitzing things.
Below are some of the common speed settings available in blenders…
- Pulse – Suitable for blending something quite fast. However, it shouldn’t be used above 60 seconds.
- Low – Suitable for grinding solid and liquid ingredients together.
- Medium – suitable for chopping vegetables without losing nutrients or vitamins.
- Fast – used for blending liquids together.
It represents the force generated inside the blender for rotating or twisting the food ingredients. An ideal torque should have the capacity to make the blending process much easier.
It is actually widely use piece while using a blender. Tamper helps in moving the stubborn bits into the blender blades. While analyzing this factor, we recommend to check them carefully as they are different from model to model and brand as well. They usually come in a ring guard to prevent the plunging into the blender blades.
8. Ease of Cleaning
Most of the blenders in Indian market come with easy to clean feature – all you have to do is simply rinse and let it dry. Some blenders even come with detachable wands which can separated from the motor handle. This makes is easy to clean. And moreover, they are dishwasher proof as well. Also, remember to clean the wand as soon as completing the blending task. If not, food stuck in the blades can get dried, making it difficult to clean.
9. Nutrient Extraction
It provides room for extracting maximum amount of nutrition from the fruits, veggies or other food ingredients during the blending process. Check out for blender that not only blends the vegetables properly but also manages to retain the nutrition.
10. Noise Levels
Now-a-days, you can easily find blenders that makes little noise to noiseless models. Unlike olden days, you wouldn’t disturb others while blending.

- Chopping/Mixing Bowls – Sharp blades will let you use the blender as food processor as well.
- Coffee Grinder – it helps to grind coffee beans or spices.
Just like any other electronic device, blenders can stop working over the time. To prevent any maintenance related issues, we recommend to choose a models that is easily repairable. And moreover, the parts of the blender should be readily available for replacement.
Most of the immersion blenders available in India come with at least 1-year warranty. But some high-end models provide 2 to 3 years of warranty based on price, model and features. However, don’t purchase a blender that doesn’t come with warranty. The time duration of warranty represents confidence of manufacturer in their quality. Some models have less warranty as they are expected to wear out and should be replaced eventually.
Before checking out for the options, make sure to choose a budget limit. Most of the hand blenders come in a range of Rs.1500 to Rs.3000.
