The whir of the blender, mixing up a frozen drink, signals the start of summertime as surely as short sleeves and sunny weather.

Very Vrrrrrrsatile

Blenders differ from juicers in that blenders mix up the pulpy parts as well as the juice, creating a more fiber friendly, finely pureed beverage. The preferred tool for drinks, blenders crush ice and liquefy better than food processors.

More to the Story

There's more to the blender than mixing cold drinks. It's also a great tool for pureeing soups and sauces, for making pesto, and for any other preparation that requires serious emulsifying of ingredients.

Power Play

A colorful kitchen companion, blenders come in cool colors and designs--which is why you'll see them displayed proudly on kitchen countertops. But they're not just about looking pretty: powerful models crush ice in a jiffy and render sauces silky smoothpesto, and for any other preparation that requires serious emulsifying of ingredients.

Go Pro!
