If you want a one-of-a-kind blender, look no further than the Beast Blender. It truly is a *beast*, much ado to its 12-rib vessel design and ice-crushing power. That said, it’s a monster for smoothie-making and even has smart blade adjustments to power through any fruit or ingredient.

Ah, if it wasn’t for the tried-and-true Vitamix blender to get us through the day with our morning (or afternoon) smoothie. This model is special for quite a few reasons, one being its 10-variable speed control. This, coupled with its pulse feature and aircraft-grade blades, make it an investment worth your coin.

Best Blender & Food Processor Combos

We reviewed the Vitamix 5200 Blender and have nothing negative to say about it. We used it to make a homemade Romesco sauce for our steak dinner (yum!) and use it all the time for soups, hummus recipes, frozen drinks and more. It’s a splurge, but worth it.
