Which? reveals new top-scoring blenderHas the latest Nutribullet model taken the crown?
22 June 2016
We've just tested nine personal blenders, and found three new Best Buys that will whip up fuss-free smoothies in a jiffy.
One of the blenders scored 90%, making it the best mini blender we've ever tested. But was it one of the cheaper models we tested, such as the Hinari Genie, £25, or one of the new wave of premium blenders, such as the Nutribullet Rx, £180?
See the full line up in the video below and find out which blender came out on top by heading to Best Buy personal blenders.
Which? verdict on the Nutribullet Rx
If you want to do more with your blender, such as making speedy soups, crushing ice, making larger batches of smoothies or instant ice cream, the Nutribullet Rx might be for you.
It's the latest model in the popular Nutribullet range, and costs a whopping £180 - over twice as much as the original Nutribullet. For that price you get plenty of extras, including a soup-making feature which heats soup as well as blending it, producing hot soup from scratch in just seven minutes.
Our researcher was impressed with this feature when she tried the Rx out for a first look review back in February 2016. To see how it fared in our full tests, head to the Nutribullet Rx review.
Buying a personal blender
Nutribullet is a household name, but if you're in the market for a personal blender, you've got more choice than ever before.
Whether you want the best blender money can buy, extra features and capacity, or just the best cheap blender, Which? can help. We've tested over 28 personal blenders, including all the Nutribullet models plus rival Nutri Ninja blenders and cheaper alternatives from Salter, JML, Hinari and more.
Three of the blenders in our latest round of tests cost £30 or less, which is less than half of what you'll pay for the Nutribullet 600. We found that all of these budget blenders can blend a basic soup and also make a decent dairy smoothie. But can they blend tough customers such as nuts, ginger, frozen, fruit, leafy greens and ice?
