If you don’t already have a blender, the Vita-Mix and Blendtec brands are considered among the best high-powered blenders on the market. The size of the motor is important. Try to find a blender with a motor size of at least 500 watts. It’s also better to have a glass pitcher, or jug. Vita-Mix has a co-polymer pitcher which may be superior to both glass and plastic.

Another thing to consider is the blender drive system. That is the part on the bottom of the jug that attaches to the base. Cheap blenders will use plastic, and good ones will use metal. Consider all these things when purchasing a blender for the first time.
