The best...blenders

Vitamix 5200, KitchenAid 5-Speed, and more

Vitamix 5200
“This Ferrari of blenders” has long been “the darling of restaurant chefs.” Top performance “comes at a steep price,” but the machine easily outlasts such rivals as the KitchenAid.

Breville Hemisphere Control
If this newcomer proves as rugged as the Vitamix, affordability will make it our new top choice. With its 750-watt motor and long blades, it “sailed through every test.”

KitchenAid 5-Speed
The only thing better than a fast blender is a “one that doesn’t drown out conversation.” Our panel’s favorite all-round performer features a glass jar and “a robust but quiet motor.”

All-Clad Immersion Blender
“Talk about a magic wand.” With this handheld device, “you can puree soups in their pots quickly, thoroughly, and without splatters.” Plus, it stores easily.

Ninja Master Prep
If you’re looking to make cocktails and smoothies on a budget, this one-speed blender is a solid choice. It “crushes ice into fluffy snow” and has attachments for chopping nuts or herbs.
