Blenders Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of blender would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
Handy Smoothie Blender
I got this Homemaker drinks blender on the weekend. This is the super budget version of the sports blender. Somehow they can make this for only $15! It's way better than I expected for the price. It can easily handle all the fruits I have tried but you can tell there is a limit to its power. I wouldn't like to try ginger or ice or anything too hard. I don't think they would get blended but for soft fruits, not a problem. You change the blades for a drink top once you are done and the blender bowl becomes your drink bottle.Very neat! Works well and amazing value.
If you want a cheap milkshake maker
Bought this a few months ago and is quite okay to use for easy to blend stuff such as milk, ice cream and spinach. But wouldn’t recommend to blend ice in it otherwise you’ll end up with a blender that does a beat box and will eventually die because you’ll upgrade.
Neat Little Drinks Blender
This is awesome for $15! It can blend up smoothies and milkshakes in no time at all and you are making them right there in the drink bottle that you take with you. It's like a super economy version of the Nutribullet. It actually works way better than I expected for the price - I guess kmart have their quality testing sorted out. You cant go wrong!
Cheap and Cheerful
This is such amazing value for only $15! We just bought it on a whim at kmart and had fun making milkshakes and smoothies this weekend. Our breakfast at the cafe cost twice as much as this thing! It's obviously a lighter build than some of the big-name blenders but its does a great job blitzing up smoothies. I love how its made right there in the bottle you drink from. I don't think it would go all that well with frozen fruit of hard veggies but fr what it is, and the price, it is great.
Great For Price.
I bought this for my daughter and she is very happy with it. I had no particular expectations regarding quality because it only cost $15 but it is surprisingly good. It is small in size and makes individual serves. She blends up all sorts of fruit smoothies and milkshakes with it & then chills them in the fridge. I don't think it is the most powerful model but it works perfectly well and has no problems.
Budget price but very handy
This is great for basic smoothies, protein shakes or milkshakes. Nothing fancy. Easy to clean and great price. It blends ice well as long as they are small cubes. Also, I cut up any solid foods like bananas into small pieces to get an even result without chunky bits.
This is a nutribullet on a budget.
Well it actually works very well. I can make soothies any time I want to . It does struggle a bit with harder foods but the trick is to cut them up into small pieces to start.
The plastic is cheaper than the more expensive brands so I am taking a point off there but the functionality cannot be beaten for the price.
Love this product!
i am satisfied with my machines blending ability, it results in a smooth result, it handles liquids better than solids but still blends solids effectively.
my blender is reliable and well-built, i love it.
it is easy to store, easy to wash and easy to use
Love this product
Very satisfied with the blending ability.
The end result is always smooth and it handles solids excellently.
It is very reliable, while it may feel cheaper it still is an excellent, reliable product.
Easy to store. Not too noisy so is great for anyone on the go. Very user friendly
For the price? Brilliant!
I have a smoothie every day for breakfast without fail so I need a blender that works, however as someone who is on a strict budget, I can't fork over large amounts of money for a fancy blender. For $15 and as someone who uses the blender only once a day, it works absolutely brilliantly. I use frozen bananas, frozen blueberries, water and spinach in my smoothies and although it takes a couple of shots, the homemaker manages to blend them all and blend them well, my smoothie doesn't have chunks, and all the ingredients are well mixed. Honestly, ...if you're looking for an inexpensive blender to use in a pinch or if you're a student who needs a blender but can't afford to buy a higher market one, this is a perfect option for you. It doesn't make a huge amount of noise and it's not overly heavy; it's easy to store and transport. I'm overall, very impressed with it.
