How to choose the right blender for your home? Submersible or stationary?


When choos­ing a blender, you need to under­stand the pur­pose of the pur­chase. For exam­ple, some are bet­ter for mix­ing cock­tails, while oth­ers are great helpers in the kitchen. There are two types of blenders — sta­tion­ary and sub­mersible! It is bet­ter for the host­ess to choose the sub­mersible option — for mak­ing baby puree, var­i­ous yogurts, cere­als. For par­ties and exper­i­ments, as well as for bar­tenders, a sta­tion­ary blender is suit­able.

What to look for when buying?

The price is influ­enced by two seri­ous fac­tors — the num­ber of blender func­tions and the com­pa­ny. More advanced, brand­ed options are more expen­sive. An ordi­nary con­sumer will not need an expen­sive blender, most of the func­tions are spe­cif­ic, that is, unnec­es­sary.

Buy a blender accord­ing to your needs. Pay atten­tion to the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the blender (price, com­pa­ny, num­ber of func­tions). If you need to pre­pare baby puree, then take a blender suit­able for this task (ask the sell­er or look at the pack­ag­ing, usu­al­ly you can find out all the charms of the device before buy­ing). Thus, you can buy a cheap but use­ful blender in the kitchen.

Types of blenders

sta­tion­ary view

The “bartender’s tool” starts the dance with us — this is a sta­tion­ary blender, some­times it is also called a shak­er. Used for mix­ing cock­tails, with the help of it they crush ice. Com­pared to a home­made kitchen blender that you have to hold, it is much eas­i­er to use, press the but­ton and get the result. It is cheap and there is no need for wash­ing — it cleans itself, a spe­cial func­tion is pro­vid­ed for this.

A fea­ture of such a blender is the bowl, or rather what it is made of. There are two options — plas­tic or glass, both bowls have their pros and cons.

Plas­tic absorbs unpleas­ant odors and begins to dark­en — this effect is grad­ual, becom­ing stronger over the years. Glass is frag­ile and can break, and buy­ing and insert­ing a new one is quite prob­lem­at­ic. Plas­tic, of course, is cheap­er, but pour­ing “hot” into such a bowl will not work. They are already start­ing to sell bowls that do not absorb any­thing and do not turn into a dark clot over the years. There­fore, every­thing is pure­ly indi­vid­ual — it is bet­ter to choose a proven mod­el, con­sult with friends or read reviews.

If the fam­i­ly is large, we rec­om­mend choos­ing a 2.5 liter bowl. If you live alone, then 500 ml is enough, but keep in mind that it can­not be com­plete­ly filled, so we remove 200 ml — this will be the opti­mal vol­ume.

Pow­er — the more the bet­ter. After all, the blender will “process” prod­ucts faster. Experts advise buy­ing blenders with a pow­er of 350–600 watts. A milk­shake at this speed is pre­pared in 10–20 min­utes.

The approx­i­mate price of a sta­tion­ary blender is from 900 to 10,000 rubles.

Buy­ing an immer­sion blender is a great choice for small kitchen jobs. It will help to make baby puree, per­fect­ly chop sim­ple foods, such as onions. It does not take up much space and is extreme­ly con­ve­nient. Fine­ly chop fruits, veg­eta­bles, is able to chop meat — turn it into minced meat, etc. But one minus — the blender needs to be held in your hands when work­ing, you can get tired. The price is affect­ed by the mate­r­i­al from which the “leg” is made. Plas­tic is cheap­er, but it’s bet­ter to buy with iron! It’s more expen­sive, but more reli­able.

We pay atten­tion to the pow­er so that the hands do not get tired — you need to choose a more pow­er­ful blender. Also some blenders have a speed set­ting!

Usu­al­ly, an immer­sion blender is sold with addi­tion­al tools (noz­zles for var­i­ous appli­ca­tions). There­fore, it is impor­tant to choose a mod­el that will real­ly be as use­ful as pos­si­ble in the kitchen. The most pow­er­ful mod­el will cost about 10,000 rubles, but the low price cat­e­go­ry is 1,000 rubles.

Cheap or expen­sive?

If you buy a sim­ple mod­el, then you will not get a lot of fea­tures. Just one noz­zle, start/stop but­ton and easy gear shift­ing with a lever. Expen­sive mod­els are more func­tion­al, but con­sume less ener­gy. If the oper­a­tion is fre­quent, then it is more cor­rect to choose an expen­sive, but more reli­able and less elec­tri­cal­ly con­sum­ing mod­el.
