If my house caught on fire and I had to save just one thing, best believe it will be my blender. Bella and I have only been together for just two months and I can honestly say my life has changed for the better.
Before I delve deeper into all things Bella let me educate you on how to pick out the right blender for you.
Choosing the right blender for you
There’s no denying that a blender is a kitchen essential and everyone should have one. From soup bases to milkshakes, smoothies to salsa, there’s almost nothing these things can’t do if you get the right ones. Blenders can range in price from $25-$300+, but before you go ahead and buy an expensive one thinking that it’s going to be better, you need to think about what exactly you’re going to be using it for.
If you’re only planning to use the blender for making yourself smoothies and milkshakes, you really only need one that’s 350 watts and blends – you won’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to get one that works well.
If you’re instead planning to use your blender to make as much as you possibly can, it might cost you a little more. When choosing a blender, you want to look for one that has a sturdy base. The sturdier the base is, the less likely you are to have an accident that could cause a serious mess. Blenders can be purchased with glass or plastic jug.
If you love hosting parties or you have a large family to cook for then you should choose the standard countertop blender.
The best blenders are sturdy and have varying pulse speeds. If you plan to use your blender more often, then you should choose one that are made of metal, though heavier, they are stronger and will last longer than the plastic-made blenders. It will also give you more stability because of its weight.
Standard blenders also have two different containers, plastic and glass. Plastic is lighter but won’t last really long especially when used more often. Glass is sturdier but extra care should be made while in use.
Glass is better because you don’t have to worry about it getting scratched and you can put it through the dishwasher without having to worry about it melting. A glass blender with a touch screen might cost a little more than a plastic one with buttons, but it’ll be a lot easier to clean.
What if I told you there’s a blender that meets all the above criteria and retails for half the price of what you’re used to. Here’s my honest Bella rocket blender review:
Features and pros
It is powerful
You need to understand that I love smoothies. Like a lot a lot! If only my family would live on smoothies….too bad they like to chew. I have made a habit of starting my day with a home-made smoothie. If you ask my husband, making a smoothie involves getting up an hour before your family and firing up a noisy contraption that’s loud enough to wake up the neighbours.
That’d be my old blender. She did make bomb smoothies but boy was she loud and slow! So for the sake of peace in the home my hubby bought me the 15 piece set Bella Rocket Blender. While she is still as loud at least she does the job in half the time.
For a dainty little thing, this blender packs quite a punch. I was impressed by how fast she was able to crush my frozen fruits. It is able to pulverize very foods in a matter of seconds. But what else would you expect from a stainless steel blade seated on a 240 watt base.
Ever since Bella came into my life I’ve been using her pretty much every day! And not just for smoothies. This nifty kitchen gadget has introduced me to a whole new world of quick-to make that I lovingly dub “whatever” recipes. It can handle anything I throw at it. Whether it’s my frozen avocadoes when I fancy guacamole or my Mexican salsas. What’s more kitchen prep has become a walk in the park.
Ease of use
You’d think a blender with 15 pieces would be difficult to assemble let alone use. Boy was I wrong! I was tickled pink by the ease of use. I love how compact it is.
- It is very loud
- The blades are not easily replaceable
My blender has become my best friend: I use up leftover produce that I wouldn’t know what to do with otherwise, I save a ton of time, and, best of all, I can easily whip a meal based on what’s lying around the kitchen!
