Look, you have blenders and you have blenders. Not the cheap, rioting Fisher Price-esque ones, but devices that perfectly prepares every smoothie, sauce or shake in no time. If you want the best results and want to enjoy those for as long as possible, then you choose the real thing.
For the best results, you choose KitchenAid.
Magnetic drive & mixing cup
This heavy all-rounder from KitchenAid stands out for its unique drive. This is namely magnetic; strong magnets in the base drive the blender blades, which leads to both optimum speed and strength. Fruit and vegetables are mixed smoothly and consistently, hard ingredients are crushed without problems.
The included 1.75 L mixing cup also has a unique shape that creates a powerful whirl. The ingredients are pulled continuously to the knives, which means that you do not need a pestle or other utensils.
Also nice (and easy!) about the Artisan magnetic blender is that it has four different pre-programmed recipe modes. Juice, soup / sauces, milkshakes and ice drinks / smoothies can be prepared without any fuss or fiddling. When the program is complete, the device switches itself off automatically. There is also the possibility to choose pulse and adjust speeds, so you can specify how other recipes should be prepared.
