Blenders

Whether it's a blitzed breakfast, baby food or a super smoothie, there's been a big take-up in these new style blenders.

Canstar blue is an organisation that compares appliances, Steven Mickenbecker says they surveyed 900 customers to find out which blenders they rated best.

Canstar surveyed overall satisfaction, value for money, performance, ease of use, cleaning and consistency and nine brands were rated.

The NutriBullet has been heavily advertised on TV and according to the Canstar survey it lives up to the hype. It rated highest overall in customer satisfaction but fell short in one area.

Sarah Preedy purchased a Nutribullet - like 28% of people who buy blenders it was an impulse buy.

While Nutribullet topped the survey the Braun, Kambrook and Russell Hobbs blenders all performed highly in overall satisfaction. When asked about value for money customers rated the cheaper Homemaker brand as number one, though it didn't rate as well for performance.

"It can be a great way for kids to experiment as well and my kids have been mucking around with spinach, blue berries, banana and some water and it's different every single day they try it."

Nutritionist Julie Meek says while getting your fruit and vegies this way can be good - you should still bare in mind what you're eating in a juice - especially high levels of sugar in fruit, "so it's not for everybody and you do need to be careful about what you're putting in there."
