A blender is one of those devices you simply can't do without in the kitchen. Some kitchen appliances can be substituted, but where blenders are concerned, there's really nothing else that can get the job done in the same way. If you want to make milkshakes, smoothies, or other blended delicacies, there isn't any way to go about it unless you have a dependable blender in your arsenal. In this day and age, though, blenders are far more than a bucket with a spinning blade at the bottom. They offer a host of accessories and functions to make your job easier (and your creations tastier). Check out our coverage of some of the best blenders on the market below.
