The Best Blender Options For Cooking

By Luis Gambini

Cooking is my passion. It is doubtless that the thrill that it provides me is not like anything else. With so many kitchen tools to choose from, my favorite is my blender.

There are a lot of styles and sizes to choose from when it comes to blenders, and are made of polycarbonate, steel, glass or a mixture of two or all of the items. The blender is commonly used to puree fruits and vegetable which is my main reason for using a blender. Other uses of blenders are crushing ice, emulsifying mixtures, turning semi-solid food into pastes or smaller particles, combining and dissolving solid as well as liquid ingredients, among others.

In stores, you are bound to find three main types of blenders. When creating complicated recipes, hand-powered blenders is your best bet. It is very simple to use allowing you to get the needed texture and consistency of the recipe that you are creating. With spinning blades at the bottom, it is affordable and easy to use.

Immersion blenders can be operated by hand and very light-weight. Using this type of blender is for small recipes. What is usually done is turning fruits into puree, for example, by putting the fruit directly into the glass, cup or bowl. What you typically see in homes is what is commonly called the base and pitcher blenders. This style has different ways to blend your ingredients by opting to press any of the many buttons to chop, blend and more. It can accommodate more amount of food to be blended and are a lot more efficient in contrast to to the other types of blenders. More complex actions can be tolerated by this kind of blender. The base of the blender is where where the machine is located. The pitcher-like top which can be removed has the blades that are controlled by the base.

In purchasing blenders, you should consider a few tips before doing so. 1) Strength and Durability - Brands can indicate how a blender withstands stress. Although affected by how you use the blender, power is also a determining factor in buying a blender. You want to buy a blender that can last a long time and does the job with ease and efficiency. 2) Usefulness - Based on your typical uses of the blender, it is recommended that you go for the blender that is most versatile and most functional to make the most of your expenses and lessen your efforts. 3) Budget - You can get a blender from between $30 to several hundreds. Go for something that fits your budget because quality kitchen items do not need to pricey. Your choice may also depend on if the blender appeals to you aesthetically, how easy to use the blender is or how much is its capacity at one time. In all, it will still depend on your likes.
