Blenders are a nifty tool to have in the kitchen. Besides whipping up smoothies and soups, you can also make your own nut butter as well as mix batters. Personal, stand and hand blenders can all get the job done but you’ll want to find one with the right power that can match how often you’ll use it. As a general rule, you’ll want to look for a personal or hand blender with at least 400 watts of power and a stand blender with a minimum of 600 watts.
To aid you in your healthy eating or culinary endeavours, here are the 7 best blenders in Singapore to check out right now:

There’s nothing worse than expecting a silky, ice-cold smoothie but slurping up coarse, icy chunks instead. The KitchenAid Diamond Blender boasts a soft start feature that starts the motor at a slower speed to pull food into the blades, before quickly accelerating to the selected speed setting. This helps minimise ingredient splatter and allows for a more even blend within its 1.75L jug.
There are 5 speeds from chop to liquify that you can choose from, as well as a pulse and ice-crushing mode.
Power: 615 watts

Thick foods like avocado mousse or pancake batter tend to get stuck at the base of your blender under the blades during the blending process. With the Panasonic MX-KM5060SSP Ultimate PowerBlade Blender, you’ll be able to salvage any remaining food and easily clean the blades thanks to its detachable jug base. Its 1.5L capacity also allows you to create about 4 cups worth of drinks so there’ll be plenty of frozen margaritas to go around.
It also includes 2 speeds and 2 pulse modes so that you can control consistency and texture. The glass mill attachment that comes with the blender is also scratch-resistant so leftover spices or ingredients you blend won’t stick around in the nooks of the scratches and breed bacteria.

Using a large blender to blend small portions usually gives an uneven result because there’s a lack of volume to create a vortex-like movement for blending. The Bosch CleverMixx Hand blender MSM24100 combats this problem by providing a mixing beaker that lets your hand blender reach and completely pulverize every bit of your ingredients.
Its ergonomic handle and lightweight design also make for easy handling – especially for large batches of sauces and soups. In addition, an anti-splash blade design ensures you won’t have to worry about creating a mess in the kitchen.
