This Years Top Rated Smoothie and Food Blenders: A kitchen Essential
No kitchen should be without a food blender. I find my blender is invaluable in my kitchen, helping to produce fruit smoothies and blending down homemade soups and vegetable purees. Blenders are also useful if you have a young baby as you can make your own homemade baby foods. On the market there is a lovely selection of Red Blenders with a great number of different looks and capabilities. I’ve listed my top 5 Red below.
1. Oster Beehive Design Red Blender
I love the unusual “beehive” shape styling to this red blender. It is going to look great sitting on the countertop. This blender has a 6 cup capacity, and can cope with crushing ice, as it has a tough stainless steel crushing blade. The jug is dishwasher safe so great for an easy clean up.
2. Hamilton Beach 2 Speed Red Blender
With 700 watts of power and a clever Wave Action blending system this blender is a real kitchen work horse. The wave action forces the food to be liquidized into the stainless steel blades, ensuring you have a nice smooth puree, smoothie or soup.
3. Retro Red Blender: Waring Pro
This Retro Styled Red Blender by Waring certainly has great 1950’s looks. It is built to work hard in your kitchen. Ideal for crushing ice, making soups and smoothies. The jar is made from durable glass and has a set of fixed stainless steel blades, which are self cleaning after use, by filling the far with detergent and whizzing for a few seconds.
4. KitchenAid Red Blender
This lovely KitchenAid blender is designed to crush ice, make purees and blend soups. The polycarbonate jar is 48 ounce and with the 4 speed blender blades is able to deal with all your blending needs in the kitchen. The control are set in an easy to clean control touch pad.

Review of the KitchenAid Blender – Demonstration of Blending a Green and Fruit Smoothie
The KitchenAid blender which comes in a lovely deep rich red with 1950’s retro looks.
Most cooks find having a blender in their kitchen essential. It is because they are so important and have so many uses in the kitchen that blenders are usually left out on the countertop so they are available for use at all times. As the blender is such a prominent piece of kitchen equipment it makes sense to choose a blender that is aesthetically pleasing, with an attractive design and a bold color statement like red.
In your kitchen the blender is able to do tasks that no other equipment can. For example producing lovely smooth silky soups, producing healthy and tastily smoothies from seasonal fruits are two such uses.
One of the most attractive red blenders must be the Kitchenaid 5 speed blender. This is a true work horse in the kitchen, it is made to last and has various refinements to its latest model. For example the blades have been redesigned to sit at different angles to ensure every last bit of soup or fruit is blended without leaving those annoying un-blended bits at the bottom of the jug. The latest model also includes easier to push buttons and a pitcher with an easy pour spout.
Aroma Smoothie Maker Demonstration
Another stylist make of a red blender to consider is the Aroma 1 1/2 liter 500 Watt blender. This comes with a powerful motor with 3 speed settings, including a handy pulse button. The blender also incorporates a clever 6 blade system that makes mincemeat out of crushing ice and will also blend and liquefy with ease. One clever function is that the blades are designed to be removed for ease of cleaning.
Magic Bullet versus the Hamilton Beach Blenders
The Hamilton beach 50233H 10 speed blender is another make worth considering when choosing a red blender. This blender is powerful with a 550 watt motor which is particularly useful for more difficult blending operations like crushing ice. The jar is square shaped which helps to ensure the ingredients are kept moving into the center of the jar and onto the blades for efficient blending.
