It's the question burning in everyone's minds whenever they step foot into their kitchen: Will it blend? The answer is: Absolutely, if you have the right high-end blender.
But not every blender is created equal -- and many are designed for specific purposes.
Are you a health nut, for instance? Do you obsessively count calories, run eight miles every morning, and follow that up with an hour on your spin bike? Chances are, you'll want the Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ Blender, which is newly available through Hinda Incentives
This 1,000 watt machine is relatively simple -- there aren't a lot of bells and whistles built into it, which is precisely the point. It's for people who want to make a smoothie and go. It comes with three cup sizes -- 18, 25, and 32 ounces -- and has three operating cycles, blend, ultra blend, and pulse.
But the key ingredient here is the Auto-iQ component, which lets the blender detect whether the fruits and veggies you've loaded in have been thoroughly liquefied, and whether all nutrients have been extracted.
Maybe your workout warrior days are on hold, however, as you cope with the pressures of being a new parent. In that case, you'll want to look into the Cuisinart Baby Food Maker & Bottle Warmer, available from Harco Incentives
. This is a small, efficient unit that simplifies the baby food making process.
The back has a bottle warmer with adapters to accommodate different bottle sizes. The baby food maker has a four-cup capacity bowl and an easy-to-remove blade -- so you can puree and steam all in the same place. Basically, this designed to ensure consistency in terms of temperature, portions, and quality -- and to take all of the stress out of making sure your baby gets the right nutritional balance.
But perhaps your real baby is the meals you painstakingly prepare. You're a foodie, an artist in the kitchen, and you need a blender that meets your unique culinary needs. Hinda also has the Vitamix Professional Series 750.
This is not an entry-level blender. It has a monster 64 ounce family-sized container and four settings for cooking: smoothies, hot soup, frozen dessert, and puree. And its 2.2 horsepower motor is so powerful, it's not even measured in watts.
Better yet: It's incredibly easy to clean. Simply add warm water and a dollop of dish soap, pop the Vitamix Pro Series 750 over to self-clean, and you're done.
