Let’s face it. We all love smoothies. Whether we make them healthy or not, it’s still something we love to drink. If you’re the kind of person who likes to keep it healthy, then you wouldn’t want to have bits and pieces of vegetable greens, in a green smoothie, like kale or spinach stuck in your teeth demanding to be chewed. What good is a smoothie if you have to chew chunks in it.
If you are a fan of delicious cold smoothies in summer, then you certainly need a blender that can crush ice effectively. Blendtec blenders are made to the highest commercial standards, so they are literally the most advanced blenders you can buy for your kitchen.
Blendtec has been a reliable producer of high power blenders since a long time now, being used mostly by commercial buyers. Fortunately for us, its recent blenders are now suitable for both commercial and personal use.
Here are 5 Reasons that Prove that Blendtec Blenders are the Best in Every Way:
The Jar Design
A Blendtec blender comes with a three-quart BPA-free jar that is spacious enough to make soup for a big dinner party. A BPA-free jar also means that you can make food for your baby without worrying about your child’s health.
Another great thing about the jar is its design. It has a pretty unique square design that makes it a five-sided jar. This obstructs the blending flow, automatically drawing all ingredients towards the blade. So, instead of all those ingredients spinning around in a circle like in a typical round jar blender, they hit the flat sides of the jar and then inertia carries the solid ingredients right into the tough end of the blades.
The most dreaded part about making a smoothie is cleaning up the blender, but with Blendtec, it’s a piece of cake. Just add some water and a dish soap and pulse for a few seconds. Then rinse it. The flat panel design with no buttons for small spills to lodge under it, also makes it very convenient to wipe off any spills on the base.
The durability of Blendtec blenders is guaranteed because 75% of each unit is the U.S made. The blades are built with cold-forged hardened steel and are up to 80% thicker and 10 times stronger than other typical blender blades.
When your blender works with a strong motor as that of Blendtec, it’s drive socket needs to be very durable. So, instead of using breakable plastic parts to spin the blades, all Blendtec blenders come with a hardened metal drive socket that never slips or needs to be replaced so you get a steel on steel coupling and the ball bearings are sealed with carbon steel. Therefore, it lasts as good as new even after vigorous use year after year. That’s the reason they give you a good 7-8 year warranty.
Blendtec blenders come with the industry’s most powerful motors, giving you the strength and quality of any commercial kitchen. This motor can blend even the hardest of ingredients like ice, frozen fruit, and raw vegetables, to a flawless even consistency in just a few minutes.
The motor provides 1560 watts of power which is equal to a 3 horsepower. With this much power in your motor, you can blend literally anything you may want to put inside the pitcher.
The amazing crushing ability also comes from the 4-inch blade. Blendtec blenders have a single-blade design that lets the jar ingredients go easily in front of the blade. The surprising thing about these blades is that they are blunt instead of being sharp because with a blade that spins over 300 miles per hour, it doesn’t need to be sharp. Instead of nicking away at the ice and frozen fruit with sharp edges, the large blunt blade can crush practically anything. The blade is attached with stainless steel shock mounted ball bearings, thereby reducing friction to avoid getting the jar and motor overworked. Another good thing about the blunt blade is that it makes it completely safe to clean as well.
Blendtec blenders come with modern touch controls that make multitasking so much easier. Modern touch controls let you walk away while blending which means you don’t need to babysit your blender to create the perfect blend.
It gives you 6 different preprogrammed cycles. These cycles can be activated simply by pressing a button. It gives you different options for ice cream frozen yogurt, ice crush milkshake, soups syrups fondues, sauces dip dressings batters, whole juice, and smoothie.
Blendtec blenders also give you 10-speed settings with pulse control. You press the high or low-speed button to get to your desired speed. All speeds have a 50-second timer, but you can also stop the cycle by pressing any other button.
Blendtec blenders also come with an LCD display that is illuminated and shows a timer count along with the cycle you choose.
All you need to do is push a button and it will blend on its own while you work on another task. It will blend according to its pre-programmed pattern of pulses and with the right speeds. The blender will slow down, speed up and stop on its own which means you get the exact result every time you make a smoothie or anything else.
Convenience is the only thing that drives us to modern technology and the best thing about having a Blendtec blender in your kitchen is convenience. Having a high-powered blender in your kitchen means that healthy, delicious meals can be prepared in no time at all. Its modern features and high-performance make it hassle-free and time-saving.
The fixed blade not only makes it safe but also takes away the hassle of dealing with screwing on loose parts. This blender is always assembled which means that it can turn out to be a great time saver that lets you get other things done while it does its thing.
Even though Blendtec blenders are made usually for commercial use, it’s still small enough to fit easily on your kitchen counter beneath the upper cabinets or to store below in the lower cabinets. It measures just 7 inches wide and 8 inches deep and it is only 15 inches high. You can buy it in white, red, or black according to what fits well with your kitchen. If you wish to store it away somewhere inside, it only weighs 7.28 pounds so it’s no trouble moving it from one place to another.
