Things to consider when buying a blender
When purchasing a new blender or replacing an old blender there are a few things we like to consider before committing to a purchase. Everyone’s daily needs for a blender range dramatically so there really isn’t a one product fits all approach when it comes to blenders. For us, we had used a blender maybe once a month to make smoothies or milkshakes. But, we had always wished our blender was better. In fact, it was our old blender that was holding us back from using a blender even more. Once we realized we would drink so many more smoothies and of coarse milkshakes, if only our blender was better the decision to make an upgraded purchase was a no brainer. We asked around to friends and family and soon realized this Ninja blender combo was the ideal solution.
1. What will you use a blender for?
Smoothies, Milkshakes, Doughs, Nut butters, Salsa, Veggie rices or even adult beverages. For us the single serve blender cups came in handy on milkshake night when everyone wanted a different flavor. Chocolate in one, Vanilla in another, Fresh strawberries, etc.
2. How often will you use a blender?
If you use a blender only 1 time a month like we used to than perhaps a cheaper option would be more ideal. But once we upgraded this slightly more expensive option quickly showed it’s worth over time.
3. How much space do you have?
We are lucky to have enough free counter space to keep the main body out at all times. The smaller and less frequently used attachments can be tucked away for another time. If you don’t have much space on your counter or in your cabinets than perhaps a smaller Ninja blender, like this one, would be a better fit.
