10 Best Personal Blender Consumer Reports 2019

There are several great blenders out there, but they aren’t “personal”. Bigger blenders tend to offer the ability to blend for much bigger families and also more advanced features like the ability to make hot soup or deliver churn-free ice cream.

On the negative, they also tend to be much larger than average, take up a lot of space on your shelf, and run at much higher price points. We define personal blenders as single-serve units that allow you to blend and also consume your smoothie in the same container.

Bigger blenders almost always require you pour from a bigger container into a smaller one, and for this reason, are harder to clean, more expensive, and a better model for a cooking professional or family than someone looking for that on-the-go boost with little maintenance and also, less-than-egregious cost.

Some of the models we considered had hybrid setups — a blending container that also doubled as a to-go cup, while also including a bigger base for family-sized smoothies.

We passed on reviewing most of these options in this round because they didn’t fit the “personal” archetype we aimed for, which most of the time meant little-to-no frills to allow for the most convenience at the lowest cost. However, we did do a test of all blender options in our more general blender review.

Blender Buying Guide

You can spend as little as $30 on a new blender—or well over $500. Paying more generally means better results and more versatility. But there are exceptions, including high-priced models that literally cracked under the pressure of our tough tests and bargain blenders that exceeded expectations. This buying guide will lead you to the best blender for your needs and budget.

Don’t Forget About Storage

Some blenders are easier to store than others, which could be a real concern if you have a small kitchen. With their super-compact design, immersion blenders tuck easily into a drawer, though, again, they can’t take the place of a countertop blender. Personal blenders are also fairly compact.

If you’re going for a full-sized unit and plan to keep it out on the countertop, a model that is less than 17 inches tall should save space on the countertop by fitting under the kitchen cabinet when not in use (though it’s a good idea to take a measurement because some cabinets are lower).

Pay attention to the number of attachments and accessories that come with the blender. Some models feature multiple mixing containers, which might improve their versatility, but they’ll also take up storage space in your cabinets.

Consider the Features

Below are features to consider. Surprisingly, paying more for a blender doesn’t necessarily get you more features. For more details, check our blender ratings and click on the features & specs tab.

Container

Most of our top-rated blenders feature plastic containers, which are lightweight and less prone to breaking than glass containers; the downside is plastic can absorb odors and stains, so you’ll want to clean it promptly after each use. Regardless of the material, look for a container with a wide mouth to facilitate loading and cleaning, as well as easy-to-read measurements.
