Blenders are indispensable appliances in almost every kitchen. However, they come with different capabilities which differ primarily based on various criteria such as wattage, power efficiency and spinning speed.
The power blender comes with different powers and efficiencies, leveraging the capabilities of regular blenders and allowing you to have great blending options ranging from blending fruit smoothies to heating a soup; you name it.
Since the market is flooded with so many options, choosing a great brand for a blender can be tedious task. Here are some of the things you should look at that will help you find the best blender out there.
Wattage and Power Efficiency
The capability of blenders are linked to its wattage, although this is not the only factor to determine its power. Top rated power blenders come with a power of 1000 to 1600; Greenis blenders are great for this and come with powers of 1000 to 1400 W.
However, some ordinary blenders come with wattages as high as 2200 W; does this make them better blenders? Absolutely not. Along with the power, you should also check something called the power efficiency.
The power efficiency basically determines the actual useful power output you get from the electricity consumed. In this sense, Greenis 1000W brushless blender with 90% efficiency can give you more power than an ordinary 2200 W blender with only 40% efficiency.
Spinning Speed of the Blades (RMP)
The speed labeled on most power blenders is around 30,000 RMP; which really doesn’t tell you much about the actual speed when the jar is fully loaded. What you should look at is the full-load speed, which is significantly reduced when the blades meet resistance from the load.
When you think of it this way, you notice that the full-loaded speed of good blenders range from 12,000 to 14,000 RMP. The speed of Greenis blenders goes up to 15,000 RMP due to their enhanced electronic system which uses micro speed controllers.
With all the food type you throw into your blender’s jar, you want to make sure it is highly durable to sustain all that heavy processing.
The jar needs to be made a material that is heat-resistant, as you may use your blender to make hot drinks. Moreover, it needs to be impact resistance to withstand the constant ice crushing; a feature that is not available in the jars of ordinary blenders.
