It is impossible to imagine a modern kitchen without kitchen appliances: a microwave oven, a mixer or a blender.

A blender is a universal thing that allows you to mix, grind, and with the help of special nozzles — beat and knead the dough, replacing the mixer.

The benefits of a blender are undeniable, and the market offers a variety of models that differ not only in external design, but also in many characteristics.

How to choose a blender

Before buying a blender, it is important to determine what functions it will perform. If it is necessary for delicious smoothies and fruit purees, it is enough to get by with inexpensive and not very powerful models. For a large family and culinary variety, small cheap blenders will be a waste of money, because here you need a more powerful and roomy model..

Philips has a wide range of home stand blenders to choose from to meet any need.

The main thing is to find among them one that is ideal for all characteristics. And for this you need to know what characteristics are important for a good blender.



Depending on the power of the blender, the list of products that it can grind is expanding. For example, the most powerful blender will easily break pieces of ice into small crumbs, while the least powerful, trying to do this, will simply burn out or break knives.

The average power of stationary blenders varies from 180 to 2300 watts.

According to their functions, they are divided into 4 categories:

  • Up to 300 W – designed for soft ingredients, liquids. Good for mixing drinks.
  • 300 — 700 W — standard power for working in the kitchen. This blender is suitable for mixing, grinding and crumbling. Capable of processing both cooked and raw food.
  • 700 — 1500 W — a full-fledged blender capable of performing all functions, including crushing ice. Differs in large dimensions and a capacious bowl.
  • Over 1500W — a professional blender used in food production. Capable of processing a large number of ingredients over a long period of time.

bowl size

The volume of the blender bowl directly depends on its power. So, for example, low-power blenders are balanced by a small bowl, while more advanced machines require much larger working volumes..

It is important to remember that the useful (aka working) volume differs from the nominal one. Many products tend to expand in volume during cooking, and a bowl filled to capacity will not be able to accommodate the finished product.

The required bowl size is calculated depending on the size of the family.:

  • from 0.4 l — volume calculated for 1-2 servings. Suitable for the preparation of baby or sports nutrition, for the preparation of individual ingredients for dishes;
  • from 1 to 2 liters — the optimal size for a family of several people;
  • from 2 l — the choice for a large family, receiving guests or homemade preparations.



The number of speeds directly depends on the power and affects the quality of grinding or mixing products.. At low speeds, the pieces remain large enough, while at high speeds the product is ground into a porridge or mixed into a homogeneous mass. Each of the speeds has a different effect on a particular product, because the larger and more varied the home menu, the more blender speeds you may need.

Also, many blenders have turbo and pulse modes.. Turbo mode turns the blender on at the highest speed. The pulse mode is good for crushing especially hard products. In the process of rotation at maximum speed, the knife makes breaks, allowing you to evaluate the degree of grinding, and the product to settle back to the bottom of the bowl.

The general speed range of stationary blenders is from 1 to 20.

To use the blender as an assistant in the kitchen, 4-5 speeds are enough. Fans of improvisations and unusual dishes should pay attention to models with 10 or more speeds. Home productions (mainly confectionery) need the maximum number of blender speeds.


The blender knife can be either one-piece or two separate parts, fixed crosswise.

There are three types of knives according to their shape.:

  • straight;
  • curved;
  • with additional cutting surfaces.

Straight knives are the simplest and cheapest. The quality of grinding with such a knife is average — it has the so-called «dead zones», due to which the grinding is uneven.

Curved blades fitted to all mid-range blenders. Such knives do not have “dead zones”, and the quality of grinding will be high, and the product itself will cook evenly. Additional cutting edges make such knives versatile, positively affecting productivity and almost without increasing the final cost of the blender.



The body of the blender can be either plastic or metal. It does not affect anything except the price and external parameters.

But the material for making the bowl has its own number of pros and cons.:

  • Plastic. Very light, does not emit harmful substances, does not break or crack when accidentally dropped (from a small height). Minus — it is painted in the color of the product and is not completely washed.
  • Metal. Durable, tolerates any temperature (very cold or very hot foods). Cons — expensive, and the grinding process is not visible, and you will have to focus solely on time.
  • Glass. It does not scratch, does not interact with the ingredients, the process of work is perfectly visible through it. Cons — very fragile and relatively heavy.
  • Composite materials. Such a bowl is light, transparent, does not stain and does not beat. Cons — expensive, and finding a replacement for a broken one is difficult.

The coupling connecting the knives and the blender’s torque mechanism must be made of steel or other durable material. Plastic couplings are much cheaper, but their service life is also several times shorter. Plastic tends to melt or crack due to high stress.


Overheat protection system

Only professional blenders that need to work at high speeds for a long time without stopping have protection against overheating. A thermal fuse is installed in the power circuit, the threshold of which is individual (on average 120 degrees).

When the temperature of the mechanism reaches the limit set on the fuse, it opens the electrical circuit, thus preventing overheating of the parts and their subsequent failure.

Power type

Most stationary blenders are mains powered.. The length of the cord on average does not exceed 1.5 meters. The cord is not removable, the body at the attachment point is tightly closed and protected from moisture or dirt getting inside. This power supply is proven and reliable.

Wireless blenders are suitable for use on trips or in the country.. They are convenient, as they do not depend on the length of the cord or the presence of sockets in the room. The disadvantage of a blender with a battery is its operating time — only 20-30 minutes. This is enough for cooking one or two dishes, but you can not count on long-term use at a time.
