Best Kitchen Tools for Making Smoothies

OK, so you need something more affordable. It's for smoothies, after all, and maybe more. This middle-of-the-line blender has a hefty 60-ounce capacity, and a burly 2.25-peak horsepower that can attack thick ingredients, no problem. And there aren't too many unnecessary settings: low and high speeds, a pulse function, and ice crush and smoothie presets. A sensor adjusts the blending speed to match ingredients being blended. And you have an LCD screen, a programmable countdown timer, and a BPA-free Tritan carafe with a drip-free design for easy pouring.
