Countertop Blenders

Countertop blenders have an electric motor in a base or housing upon which a jar or container is attached. The unit's motor powers the blades which are on top of the housing at the bottom of the container.

Countertop blenders are more powerful than immersion units and are good at mixing and pureeing foods and liquids and chopping and crushing ice for drinks. These are the key attributes that shoppers should look for in a countertop blender.

Countertop blender's containers are made of glass, plastic, or stainless steel, and typically have a capacity of about 4 to 8 cups or 32 to 64 ounces. Glass containers are usually heavier and more stable than plastic ones. This means that the glass containers will be more stable, less shaky and also resistant to scratches. Plus, the glass allows you to see how the food is blending.

Stainless steel containers are attractive but they obviously prevent you from seeing the blender in action. Anywhere from 3 to 15 speeds are typically available on countertops. The speed controls can be touchpads, push buttons, dials and switches.

Immersion blenders

Immersion, or handheld, blenders are long, thin blenders that do not have their own container to blend food or liquid in. Instead, immersion blenders are held in your hand and placed into the food or drink that you are blending.

Immersion blenders have rotating blades at the end of their shaft. Immersion blenders are used to puree, whip or chop foods and liquids in the separate containers that they are being cooked, simmered or mixed in.

Immersion blenders can be useful for mixing smoothies, milkshakes, and other powdered drinks. These blenders do not have the power, or number of watts, that countertop blenders do, thus, they cannot replace a countertop blender for chopping ice or mixing and pureeing several foods or ingredients. Immersion blenders are best at mixing foods and liquids that do not require a large amount of heavy ingredients to be blended together.

Best Countertop Blenders Reviews and Ratings 2014
Here are some great countertop blenders for fresh salsa, smoothies and more!

Oster BVCB07-Z Counterforms 6-Cup Glass Jar 7-Speed Blender
Performs very well. We use this blender for making sauces, marinades and salsas. It works beautifully. It is heavy so it doesn’t tip easily and the rubber feet keep it in one place.

Breville BBL605XL Hemisphere Control Blender
This is an excellent blender/juicer. Wife likes it for juicing health drinks and I like it for smoothies. Good price for an above average appliance.

Hamilton Beach 58149 Blender and Chopper
This Hamilton Beach Blender is amazing! It looks great from the outside and works perfectly up till now. Its wave action blending definitely works well and blends better than other blenders that I have used in the past.

The lid on this blender though is probably what I like the best about it. It avoid all spills and/or overflows while it is blending because it goes tightly over the blender and the top actually enables you to pour into something without even taking the lid off! This saves a lot of time and keeps other pitchers clean since your blender becomes the perfect pitcher!

The chopper is simply an extra, but the extra works fantastic. I have made a lot of salsas and chopped tomato, onion, etc and it chops them to perfection. I really like this blender and therefore, I rate it 4 stars out of 5 stars!

BELLA 13586 12-Piece Rocket Blender, Stainless Steel and Black
Wow! I can’t say enough about it. I absolutely LOVE it! It works great and I find I am using it daily for everything. Love the way the smoothies come out. Experimenting with different fruits etc ..it’s fun!
