Hey guys, it’s your favorite blade specialist Dan here, back again to give you the inside scoop on the newest and best products hitting the shelves near you.
Today we are going to be tackling the question, what is the best blender on the market? The competition is steep and there is no shortage of quality blenders to choose from. Manufacturers from around the globe have continued to step up the quality of their products and now we have a very tight competition between some world-renowned corporations. All of this competition has only benefited us, the consumer, by allowing us to enjoy a more competitive pricing structure in the market.
If you are like me, smoothies and homemade juices are a big part of your diet. Before I owned a quality blender (under $200), I found it rather difficult to eat the daily amount of fruits and vegetables. This was especially true on days where my schedule prevented me from preparing my own meals, or on days when I ate out a lot. Today I don’t have any problems getting the perfect amount of fruits and vegetables into my diet and this is all thanks to my new change in diet.
Every morning I use my smoothie blender to make a healthy smoothie that is packed with all the foods I need to give my body the energy to get through the day. Since I have begun drinking my healthy breakfasts every morning I have noticed a significant increase in the total amount of energy I have throughout the day. Before I made my health smoothies, I used to get into a slump around the early afternoon hours like 2 – 4 pm. After some research, I learned that this was because my body was in need of the nutrients because it had burned up the reserves from the day before. Now I am more alert and awake because my body has the daily-recommended amounts of nutrients it needs to continue to operate properly throughout the day. This also makes my workday go by much quicker as there are no more lulls in time.
A good smoothie can also curb your hunger and if you have tight schedule few meals are as easy and convenient to make. If you are like me, your schedule can get hectic. A smoothie is the perfect meal for people on the go and it sure beats stopping to eat fast food, which everybody knows is horrible for your body.
When I first got into making smoothies there were only 2 or 3 manufacturers really building quality blenders. Now the market has a wide variety of styles and makes to choose from, each with their own special gimmick or feature for enticing you to buy. If you are like me, you are looking for quality at a reasonable rate.
Manufacturers have figured out new and innovative design tweaks to help their product to stand out amongst the heavy competition. It can get overwhelming searching through the pages of kitchen appliance makers online and there is no real way for you to see the quality of the product you are thinking of getting. Thankfully, I am very familiar with this market and even with the influx of new manufacturers; I have found 5 blenders that can qualify for the title of the best blender on the market today. Any of these blenders could qualify for the title as each has its own draw and appeal. No matter what kind of lifestyle you live, there is a blender that is the perfect for you.
