It doesn’t matter what you’re looking for. A small personal blender? A kitchen workhorse? Travel cups? Combo food processor models? Quiet model? Something for protein shakes?
I’ve reviewed so many blenders for HBS that I knew exactly where to look as Prime Day rolled around this year.
What I’ve listed below are blenders that I already reviewed and know are awesome… and they’re heavily discounted now, leading into Prime Day. Scroll the list to find the best deal on the kind of blender you’re looking for. It’s that simple.
#1 Best Deal: Ninja Professional 72oz Blender
The Ninja Professional 72oz was already a bargain family blender, but with today’s extra discount, it’s a total steal.
This is a blender to do everything. Its enormous capacity means you can make family quantities, whether it be of smoothie, frozen dessert, salsa or guacamole.
But what people don’t understand until they use a Ninja blender is how quickly they blend. Because of the S-shaped blade, it’s not just blending the ingredients at the bottom of the container but ingredients all the way through the container.
It can crush ice properly (which a lot of personal blenders can’t). It can puree vegetables. With a simple control panel, and 1000 watts of blending power, everyday blending tasks are taken care of with ease.
It does sit tall on your countertop, but – as you can see in the photo above – it will still fit under kitchen cabinets. It’s also not particularly loud for a blender, at just 89 decibels on top speed.
Today’s price reduction is hard to believe. If you want a do-everything blender at a great price on Prime Day, the Ninja Professional is the way to go.
#2 Upgrade Pick: Vitamix E320 Blender (Renewed)
Normally the words “Vitamix” and “deal” don’t go together. These are high-end blenders for serious home cooks. But this Prime day, one Vitamix blender did catch my attention.
Currently showing 36% off, Vitamix blenders don’t come any cheaper than this, especially not big ones with the full-sized 64oz containers!
What does this give you that the Ninja doesn’t? The ability to blend and create almost anything.
I still remember my first smoothie from a Vitamix. Whatever the ingredients (leaf, nut, seed, ice) it comes out silky. You really can taste the difference on a drink made in a high-end blender like this compared to your Mom’s old blender.
You can make ice cream? Look at this thing our chef made with his Vitamix and tell me it doesn’t look delicious:
Perfect baby food… nut butter, homemade flour… this epic hummus?
I’ll stop before I turn this post into a fangirl rant about Vitamix blenders but suffice it to say for the extra spend, you’ll get years of delicious treats both sweet and savory. The renewed E320 comes with a 5-year warranty.
#3 Best Blender/Food Processor, Do Everything Deal: Ninja Mega Kitchen System
In our analysis, this is one of the top-rated combo models currently available AND it’s on sale right now.
The Mega Kitchen is for you if you:
- a) Want a food processor as well as a blender. That is, you’ll be doing food prep with this thing, chopping, grating, and slicing as well as making your morning smoothie.
- b) You want to make big quantities, for a family of 4 or more. With a large 72oz container (bigger than you get with Vitamix blenders) you can prepare big portions made for sharing.
- c) You still want travel cups to take your beverages on the go. Because this comes with them.
It’s got 1500 watts of power so whole vegetables, large chunks or ice, or stalky greens like celery won’t be a problem. It also has blending programs for dough, ice and smoothies, to help you get the right consistency… more consistently 🙂
Most importantly, there’s not a better value combo model available right now. If you want the works, this is your best bet.
#4 Best Immersion Blender Deal: Mueller 9-speed Immersion Blender
This little hand blender was already affordable, but taking a further 33% off makes it a crazy deal.
There’s not much to say here. With 500 watts of power and two attachments (whisk and milk frother) you basically can’t do better on an immersion blender for this price.
My normal concern would be the unknown brand. Can you really trust it? But I’ve seen this blender in my research for a couple of years now. The reviews are outstanding. It’s still popular. And it comes with a 1-year warranty.
UPGRADE PICK: Vitamix Immersion Blender
If you want more from an immersion blender, but you still want a deal, the Vitamix immersion blender is also on sale today.
What does the Vitamix immersion blender give you to justify the higher price?
- An extra 125 watts: That’s 25% more power. This is a “do everything” immersion blender.
- Scratch-resistant blade guard: See the black part at the bottom? That’s a durable polymer blade guard that means no metal pieces making contact with your good pots, pans or glass containers.
- 3-year warranty (compared to 1 year on the Mueller)
- 5-foot cord: Much longer than the 2 or 3-foot cords found on cheaper models. This gives a lot of added convenience as you’re cooking.
The Vitamix Immersion blender is still pretty new, so you’re getting the latest technology with this purchase. Especially given the discount, you’ll be happy you got yourself a premium product on this one.
Ok, that’s it for this update. I’ll pop back in to add new deals as I find them through Prime Day.
Until then, happy shopping!
