TOP 3 COMBO BLENDERS

Superior Digital News | News, Reviews, and Deals on the best technology for health, fitness, and fun

While it’s nice to have personal blender cups to take your liquid meals on-the-go, having a large traditional blender pitcher is always a nice option, too. From making blending margaritas for the party to whipping up soup for the crew, you never know when you’ll have to blend in bulk. Don’t get stuck choosing between the 2 styles.

Combo Blender Consolidation

     If you want to be prepared for everything, yet stay economical with your counter space, then a combo blender would be the perfect tool for your kitchen. The best part about combo blenders is that they can adequately replace at least 3 appliances at one time.

  • Personal Blender
  • Traditional Blender
  • Food Processor
  • Ice Cream Maker
  • Juicer
  • and more

     It doesn’t matter what size your kitchen is, it’s always nice to free up counter space. For RVs, boats, tiny houses, and other living spaces with small kitchens, combo blenders are essential. Here are our top 3 favorite combo blenders and one that just barely missed the cut:

Conclusion

     For chefs on-a-budget, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System provides ridiculous blending power without breaking the bank. The huge 72oz blender pitcher and XL 64oz food processor bowl can put out some serious volume. It even comes with a dough blade that can mix doe in less than 1 minute.

      Even the 16oz blender to-go cups aren’t as big as we would’ve hoped, they’re very cup-holder-friendly and durable. The commercial-grade style and build of the base blending unit makes the Ninja MKS an all-around beast. On top of all that, equipped with Ninja’s patented Auto-iQ, you get the luxury of some premium hands-free blending modes.

3. NutriBullet RX

Best For Smoothie-Lovers

NutriBullet Rx Combo Blender Kit
NutriBullet Rx Combo Blender Kit

Motor Power: 1,700 Watts
Container Sizes: 1 Liter pitcher, 45oz cup, and 30oz cup

Pros:

  • 1,700 Watt motor is extremely powerful (2.3 horsepower)
  • So fast and powerful you can make heat soups and sauces
  • Hands-free SMART Technology
  • 1 Liter SouperBlast pitcher with vented lid
  • 30oz Blender cup
  • 45oz Oversized blender cup
  • Pitcher and blender cups have built-in handles
  • Includes lid wrench for tightening and loosening blending lids

Cons:

  • Some durability issues with motor and lid
  • No sip-and-seal lids
  • Blender pitcher is small compared to other combo blenders
  • Blender cups aren’t cup holder friendly, especially with the built-in handles

Conclusion

     Perfect for smoothie-lovers in households of no more than 2 people. (If you have 3 or more smoothie-lovers in the house then you should check out our wildcard pick.) The 1,700 Watt motor is great at breaking up Chia seeds and other tough-to-blend smoothie ingredients. With the 32oz blender pitcher and vented lid, you can even make hot soups from scratch in a matter of minutes.

     Our favorite features of the NutriBullet Rx are the blender to-go cups. The “small” 30oz blender cup is plenty big for the average person. If that’s not enough, the larger 45oz blender cup should satisfy any smoothie craving. On top of that, they both feature built-in handles since they’re too large to fit in many car cup holders.

     As the most compact option on our list, the NutriBullet Rx should be your #1 choice if limiting the usage of counter and storage space are high priorities.

Wildcard: Nutri Ninja Hybrid 1500W (BL642)

Best For Smoothie-Lovers In XL Households

Nutri Ninja 1500W Combo Blender
Nutri Ninja 1500W Combo Blender

Motor Power: 1,500 Watts
Container Sizes: 72oz pitcher, 32oz cup, 24oz cup, and 18oz cup

Pros:

  • 1,500 Watts (Recently upgraded from 1,200 Watts)
  • Huge 72oz blender pitcher
  • 3 Oversized blender to-go cups come included
  • Ninja’s consistent high-quality build and durability
  • Auto-iQ feature for hands-free blending and processing
  • Dishwasher safe

Cons:

  • Doesn’t come with food processor blender bowl
  • 6-Blade cutting shaft can be hard to work around and takes up space
  • Blade shaft in blender pitcher is harder to clean than traditional blade setups

Conclusion

     Perfect for large smoothie-loving households. This blending beast comes with a huge 2.1L blender pitcher and 3 oversized blender to-go cups. Even though it lacks the food processor bowl that comes included in the Ninja Mega Kitchen, the blender pitcher can do just as good of a job. You just won’t get the convenience of the dough blade for whipping up cookies and other baked goods.

      Now that this bundle got upgraded from 1,200 Watts to 1,500 Watts, it’s more than capable of handling the high volume blending containers in the same session. All said and done, you can produce 146oz of smoothies before having to wash a blending container. Ninja also has plenty of compatible blender cups of various sizes so everyone can have their own to-go cup.
