The All-Round Kitchen Appliance you Wouldn’t Want to be Without
In recent years, high powered blenders have gained more attention as domestic households demand commercial quality kicthen appliances. High powered blenders take blending to a whole new level and are capable of not only pureeing and blending to a smoother consistency than you once thought possible but are also capable of performing a multitude of kitchen tasks such as crushing ice, making hot soup, kneading dough, making ice cream and making flour. Vitality 4 Life is leading the way in terms of technological developments in "super blenders" and focusing on usability of the machines to make the experience easier and simplier than ever before for the customer.
There are several well-known brands of high performance blenders on the market, with fairly big differences in price, usability and quality. Watch our video of two of the best of class super blenders, the Vitamix Total Nutrition centre and Vitality 4 Life's very own BioChef Living Food Blender.
Blenders are among the most versatile kitchen appliances you can buy. From saving time on chopping ingredients to making soups and smoothies, blenders can be a cook’s best friend.
Choosing a Blender
Do you want to start making delicious, fresh smoothies and soups? Are you looking to find a more compact solution to your giant food processor unit? Or do you just want to make food prep that little bit easier after a long day in the office?
Before purchasing a blender you should think carefully about what it is you want from your appliance. While all blenders share some basic features in common, their power and capabilities can vary. The shape, size and aesthetic appeal of blenders can also be a factor, particularly if your kitchen workspace is limited or you are working in a commercial kitchen and need your appliances to be consistent with a certain look or feel.
Thanks to the growing popularity of “smoothies on the go”, more and more people are turning to blenders for the home. Making the right decision can mean the difference between a blender that lasts for years and one that needs replacing within 6 months.
Here’s a quick list of features to look out for:
- Variable speeds
- Pitcher capacity
- Ease of cleaning
- Energy usage
- Warranty length
Most blenders have a jug capacity of 1–2 litres but if you are blending soups or smoothies for the whole family you will want to ensure that you have the capacity to feed everyone in one sitting.
The ability to adjust blending speed can be important, too. If you are looking to make milkshakes or ice creams and need to blitz ice, then a powerful motor and resilient blade is particularly important.

We Only Stock Easy to Clean Blenders
We hate cleaning! In fact, we prefer to stock appliances that are not only quick and efficient to use, but also make tidying up afterwards that bit easier, too.
BioChef blenders are particularly swift to clean. Simply fill the jug half full with warm water, pour in a little of your everyday washing up liquid, add the lid and turn it on. Just five seconds on high will do the trick. Then just tip the water away and your blender will look good as new once more.
Should I Juice or Blend?
Juices and smothies both taste great, are easy to make and offer fantastic health benefits. Anything that utilizes delicious, fresh fruit and vegetables in their raw form is good for you. But there are some distinct differences between juicing and blending.
Typically, blenders do not release the juice from the pulp in the same way as a juicer. Instead the food contained within the jug or pitcher is the whole foodstuff – fibre and all.
Where our blenders differ, however, is that they are able to separate the juice from the fibre to make it more readily accessible for the body to digest. This method helps promote the release of phytonutrients into the blood stream and deliver genuine health benefits.
The difference between a BioChef blender and a cold press juicer is that the juice is not then extracted from the fibre. For this reason, blended food such as smoothies tends to be more filling than juices because the fibre fills the stomach much more – this is why smoothies and soups form complete meals in their own right.
In fact, food from a high performance blender such as the BioChef range offer nutrient-rich superfood on-the-go – making it the best weight-loss “fast food” you could hope for.
While juices are less filling, they do offer individuals the opportunity to cram in more nutrients in every sitting – both fruit and vegetables. In fact, one interesting point of difference between juices and blended drinks such as smoothies is that it is less advisable to combine fruits and vegetables in a blender. Not only are the flavours more difficult to marry, but it can also have an impact on the function of your digestive enzymes.
