A type of blender commonly used in restaurants, cafes, and multifunction blender allows you to grind whole big ice cubes, grinding time is also much faster than the normal blender.

Think about it, do you need a blender before you buy it. Why? Because every blender is quite time-consuming to use, especially the cleaning stage after each grinding. It is for this reason that in fact, we can see quite a lot of families buy a blender to use several times and then leave it. Accurately assessing your needs will help you make the right decision whether or not to buy a blender.
Selection of blender capacity how much is reasonable? We often pay less attention to this issue. The fact that just for household use, the capacity is not so important, because the manufacturers have designed the capacity quite reasonable.
In more detail, high power will help the blender faster, more grinding each time, and usually grind the harder food. The normal capacity of a blender is 200-300w, while the high power type is 500-600W.
The mill capacity will determine whether the blender will grind more or less each time. Therefore, the choice of capacity will usually depend on the number of members in your family. For a normal family of 4-5 people, it is reasonable to choose a capacity of 1.2 – 1.5 liters.
There are two important parts of a blender you need to care about the material: the mill and the blade.
There are two common types of materials for making a mill: plastic and glass, each with its own advantages and disadvantages:
Plastic mill: is a lighter mill that is more convenient to use, but harder to clean, and if it is a poor quality plastic, it will affect food safety.
Glass grinders: heavier, can be broken if not careful, but easier to clean, safe, and better hygiene.
With the blade, currently popular is made of stainless steel, stainless steel, but the material of the blade is very different. We can hardly test the material of the blade, which can only be estimated by the price of the machine. Blender cheap, the blade can be bent, buckled or even rusted. And with a better type, the blade will be durable, sure.
Blender will definitely make noise. However, at present most of the grinders have self-adhesive bases on the flat surface, which helps make sure the machine, reducing noise significantly. The noise level of a blender depends on the type of food you grind, the type of glass mill, or the plastic.
The type of blender that makes the most noise is the low-cost, uncertain design, plastic mill.
