Nutri Ninja

Nutri Ninja fits between Nutribullet and NutriBullet Pro/Elite in pricing and the quality of the blender. Since It’s a lot smaller than others on the market it is much easier to clean and the blades are easily removed so if you’re in a hurry, you can clean them in seconds without risking injury. It’s the closest competitor to the Nutribullet and even has a cross blade that will allow you to grind up the hardest food items such as nuts and seeds. However, the difference between Nutribullet and Ninja is the power source. Nutri Ninja has a weaker motor and the power source is the battery pack rather than the AC adapter. Other than the motor not being as strong and the batteries dying out after prolonged use, it’s a very good blender for the price point and is the best Nutribullet competitor on the market.

Nutribullet

The Nutribullet claims to be able to replace your juicer,  blender, and food processor all in one. It gives you the option of making juices or smoothies with the same machine. It is extremely popular for being so versatile and easy to use. Although the motor only has 200 watts compared to Vitamix’s 2 horsepower, it can still do everything the other blenders can such as make soups and smoothies. However, the major downside is that the container is made out of plastic so you have to be very careful with the blender because if the blades are exposed for too long or aren’t locked in properly, they might leak. Also, after prolonged use, there have been complaints about the containers cracking.

Magic Bullet

The Magic Bullet is the blender for the college student or a single person. It’s the most affordable of the bunch and the easiest to clean. The Magic Bullet can do pretty much everything that the Nutri Ninja or Nutribullet can do but the difference lies in the potency of the motor. While it might not blend as well, it still does a great job at blending up fruits and veggies, making smoothies, soups, sauces, etc… If you won’t be using your blender often then this is the one for you since it doesn’t take up too much space on your countertop and it’s also very easy to store. Also, since the blade is the same size as the container, the Magic Bullet takes up a lot less space in the dishwasher.

Blendtec

Blendtec is the blender for the chef or the person who wants the whole package. It does everything except heat up the contents inside, which means you can make hot soups and it will still blend them evenly with no chunks of anything left. Blendtec fits between the Nutribullet and the Vitamix in price but the quality is very much on par with the higher-end models from other companies. It also has a 3 horsepower motor which is the second most powerful motor in the blender market. This particular model also comes with pre-programmed settings for smoothies, salsa, ice cream, whole juice, etc… The difference between the Blendtec and the higher-end models is the warranty. While the  Blendtec has the standard 7-year warranty, the more expensive models have up to 10-year warranties.

Vitamix

If Blendtec is the blender for the chef then Vitamix is the blender for the professional. The Vitamix has a 2 horsepower motor which means it’s one of the most powerful blenders in the industry. This is the blender for the person who wants the best of the best. This particular brand boasts a 2 horsepower motor, the most powerful one a blender can have. They also come with 7-10 year warranties, which means that if something goes wrong, no matter what it is, Vitamix will replace it for the cost of the blender and the shipping. You can use this blender for just about anything, thanks to the heat-resistant container that comes with the machine. The only downside is the price point, the Vitamix is the most expensive blender in the market, and the only one that’s more expensive than it is the Blendtec.

Breville Hemisphere Control Blender

The Breville Hemisphere Control Blender is the blender for the professional chef or the person who wants to look like the professional chef. It has the same power as the Vitamix, but the warranty isn’t as long, since it’s only 5 years. This particular model also comes with a manual that will tell you the exact time to use the blender for the perfect result. The only downside is the price point because the Breville Hemisphere Control Blender is also one of the most expensive blenders on the market. However, if you’re willing to invest the money in a blender that will last you for at least 5 years before you have to buy another one, it would be worth spending the extra money on this model. This Blender also looks very nice, so it’s great for anyone who loves to show off the appliances in their kitchen.

Oster Beehive Blender

The Oster Beehive blender is the blender for the traditionalist. This blender has no bells and whistles, it doesn’t look fancy and it certainly doesn’t boast any impressive horsepower. However, if you’re looking for a cheap blender and all you want is to blend fruits and veggies without having to spend too much money on one, this is the blender for you. It isn’t made with industrial strength plastic like some of the other blenders out there but rather BPA-free plastic that will make sure your food tastes just as good as when you put it into the blender.

In conclusion, when it comes to blenders the decision is always the same: you get what you pay for. If you’re willing to invest in a blender that will last you for years, then opt for one of the more expensive models that have stronger motors and longer warranties. However, if you just want something that will blend your fruits and veggies without all the bells and whistles, then you can go for the cheaper models. It all comes down to what you want and how much money you’re willing to spend. So make sure you understand your needs and your budget and you’ll be able to find the perfect blender for you.
