Any kitchen appliances that are made of plastic including blenders, are presumed to be less durable, less powerful and less useful as compared to those that are not made of plastic since plastic are soft and are prone to breakage and melting. Nowadays, some blenders are made out of stainless steel and are metal-based to keep up with the demand of a durable, powerful and long lasting blending equipment.
Some blenders that are made from materials like glass, polycarbonate and metal are the type of blenders that will last long and can keep up with all the culinary demands since these materials are durable and are less prone to damages. Most important of all is to pay attention to the blender’s warranty card as this will serve as your blender insurance in case some goes wrong with your blender. There some blender manufacturing companies that offer a warranty protection for the period from six months up to even six years to each and every piece of their blenders. Even if other blenders are made out of glass, polycarbonate or are metal based, its other parts such as its rubber gasket and plastic cover can wear out and breaks easily and do not last as long as its other body parts. It is therefore recommendable to wash blenders with the use of the hands or wash them manually to avoid other damages and makes its last even longer than its life’s use.
Even if all blenders may perform the same tasks, purpose and goal, all of them are not created equal and may function effectively and accurately according to its use. Some Blender manufacturing companies that produces Countertop blenders claim that their blenders have a minimum wattage of 300 to a maximum of 1,500 watts but this actually depends on the usage of the blender. Yes it true that the better the blender can perform if it has a bigger wattage, if you will not be using your blender for hard substances like ice, nuts or large quantities of fruits and vegetables, you don’t need to purchase a blender with more wattage that is more expensive than a blender with smaller wattage yet less expensive.
A blender with a 300 to 600 watts would be fine for a regular and home use only. We don’t need to purchase a blender that has gears of more than three since having gears beyond three is an over kill for an ordinary blender. You may want as many speed gears as you can but without a blender’s pulse button, all your speed gears are nothing so you better make sure to check if your blender ha a pulse button or not.
