Smoothie Blender – a needed appliance in the kitchen for healthy lifestyle

By on July 20, 2017

Kitchen is considered as a lab for the people who love to cook different varieties of stuff.  Sometimes they try to create tasty stuff and sometime it will be the turn of healthy stuff. Healthy food means a food that is loaded with proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals, at right proportion. Many times the healthy stuff won’t taste good and the food that tastes good is not healthy. Creating the stuff that is healthy and tasty is a big challenge, especially when you want to cook when we are on diet or cooking for children. If we boil or fry the vegetables they lose all the nutrients in it. To protect the proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals present we need to eat them raw. But every vegetable will not taste good in raw form. Same is the case with fruits. Fruit that is rich in nutrients will not taste good but we can consume them in form of juice.

About blenders – Here is everything you want to know

Blender is a machine that liquefies the ingredients and makes into a thick substance. Unlike juicers blenders will not keep the pulp. The pulp will also get liquefies. The parts of blender are Housing (a place where motor and other controls are present), Blades (stainless steel), Jar (with proper measurement marks, a nut to hold, and lid). Blades are chosen basing on the ingredients to be blended. Most blenders will come with blades that can even cut the ice cubes. Before getting a blender the following are the configuration we need to understand.

  • Blenders are available from 300 watts to 1,000 watts.  Choosing a blender capacity depends on what kind of ingredients you want to use. If you are using a high dense ingredients’ it is better to take the higher watt blender
  • Blender should have various control levels. Now many blenders are coming with manual control settings as well as automated control settings. The control settings are used to mainly set the speed and thickness of smoothie. Generally, in blenders the speed varies from 3 to 16 levels.
  • Blenders jar shape is also important. It should have a wider mouth. The wider the mouth that easier to clean. It should have a convenient passage to pour the smoothie. The capacity of the jar is also important. The capacity of the jar depends on for how many people you are making the smoothie
  • Check the blades of the blender. They must be durable and easy to remove and clean.

The price of the blender depends on the features you choose to have. Even though if you are purchasing low quality blender see that it last for at least 3 years.
