We test the latest high-powered super blenders in our test kitchen to help you find one that can handle tough tasks like nut butters and pizza dough. Not sure if you need one? Our blender buying guide will help you decide whether a super blender is ideal for you, or whether a traditional benchtop blender will do the job. Our how we test article explains our testing rigour.

In our kitchen lab, we conduct a number of tests, including chopping carrots, blending a soft food, crushing ice, green smoothie and kale-blending, as well as making a nut butter and sorbet. We also subject super blenders to additional tests, including milling nuts and parmesan cheese, making dough and raw vegetable soup. Our results show:

  • which are best at blending a range of ingredients, including hard and tough foods that superblenders claim to handle
  • which are easiest to operate and clean
  • which have safety features.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you find out which brands are less noisy, and which super blenders are best at certain tasks. And our Recommended rating will help you see quickly which models come out on top.

Performance score

Expand to view more details.

Performance is based on results for blending a soft food, crushing ice, chopping carrots, green smoothie, kale, nut butter, and sorbet (scores may have changed from previously tested models due to removing the dough score as not all are capable). To ensure comparison with previous years, the performance score doesn’t include dry-milling nuts or parmesan cheese or raw vegetable soup.
