Blenders, mixers, shakers... A huge variety of home appliances can make even the most sophisticated culinary maestro think. That is why today I propose once and for all to figure out how to choose a good blender for making cocktails.
All blenders, which to one degree or another can be useful in the preparation of cocktails, can be divided into two categories: stationary and manual immersion.
Their main advantage is compactness and mobility. In an elongated plastic case hides the electric motor, which is attached to the "leg" with knives.
The presence of several nozzles allows you to successfully cope not only with the ingredients of cocktails, but also with more serious products, such as meat and dough. If you need a versatile kitchen assistant, this is it!
Stationary models are more convenient for making cocktails. The mixing tank is installed on the base, and is started from the control panel. The advantage of the design is a spacious bowl of 1.5–2.5 liters.
If you like a stationary device for cocktails, when choosing pay attention to the material of the bowl. Transparent plastic in low-cost models over time is painted in the color of products, especially if you chop bright berries and fruits.
In addition, often the inner part is covered with a scattering of scratches, this bowl seems to be muddy. Glass is an excellent choice, winning plastic on all items, the only thing is that such a bowl requires careful handling.
Separate category - shakers. Their goal is to simply mix the ingredients with high quality without crushing. For personal use, you can purchase a glass shaker, for example, Сontigo Shake & Go Fit Compartment or BlenderBottle ProStak.

Instructions and recommendations:
Power. What to look for when choosing? First of all, power:
- if you have to grind and beat only soft foods, take a low-power model up to 250 W;
- one step higher are models with a capacity of 250 to 600 watts. They will cope with almost all fruits and vegetables, but ice and nuts will not be too hard for them;
- from 650 to 1000 W - a universal solution that can grind and beat everything that is required for a cocktail, including frozen fruit and ice.
