  • Best Blender on a budget

    Hey

    I've lived all 5 years in Canada without any form of blender, but I'm seeing it could be really useful to extend my Primal diet to include things like pate (can't stomach liver any other way), protein shakes, soups and so forth.

    What is the best blender you'd recommend? Cheap is good, and small too as it's just me!!

    Thanks,
    PG!

    Magic Bullet. Canadian Tire has it on sale once in a while for $30. It is awesome and versatile, and perfectly suited, nay, designed, for small portions. Superstore has a spin-off, haven't tried it. But the idea of an upside down blender is genius!

    Another good option is a hand-held immersion blender.

      I actually use my $20 Oster wand blender for everything, so simple to clean.

        Smoothies and gazpacho are easier with MB, I love how the cup is the serving cup, and how you can make a separate smoothie for everyone or a sauce without splatter... I still RP a TV commercial whenever I use my magic bullet. It's really great.

          Another vote for an immersion blender! I use mine for everything...even pate They're much easier to clean than a regular blender and they take up almost no space.

            Can immersion blenders handle ice though? I'm asking because I'm in Canada too and my blender stinks.

              Got my latest Sunbeam blender at Value Village for $15. Bought the one before that there too a few years ago, and the motor pooped out but the canister (?) was fine. Before that I broke the glass canister so I bought replacement at VV. I just buy another basic Sunbeam every 5 or 10 years, since all the parts are interchangeable.

                Buy an old one from the 70s. I have one that my mom gave me. She has had several new ones since then and they have all worked less well and then broke. Check goodwill or garage sales or ask your mom.

                  I've never tried, to be honest, but I have a $20 Canadian Tire special. I imagine a better model wouldn't have much of a problem. Mine handles small frozen things like berries fairly well.

                  I burned through my fair share of blenders in my daiquiris-all-the-time days, so I can't say an immersion blender is any worse!

                    I've got a sunbeam that's a combo blender and food processor that's great! Same base with two tops to go on it.
