The 575 Blendtec Blender
The One and Only Breville Boss!
Above are my top picks for Best Blender For The Money.
The De’Longhi Group is based in Treviso, Italy and its small domestic appliance division has 3 internationally renowned brands, De’Longhi, Kenwood and Braun. The Kenwood brand is based in Havant, England. Kenwood has a presence in over 40 countries with over 200 different products. De’Longhi America, Inc. (and it’s Kenwood division) has been headquartered in Upper Saddle River, NJ for 30 years and is the North American Subsidiary of the De’Longhi Group including Kenwood.
These Kenwood Blenders (2 models) are exceptionally well made pieces of equipment. The include the Blend-X Pro Blender BLM800GY and the Blender BL705.
Blend-X Pro Blender BLM800GY
This blender features its Patented Multizone (TM) Blade Technology which results in 30% more cutting action across TWO zones (Upper & Lower). Ingredients from the lower zone are driven up into the cutting zone by the lower, wide-reaching blades and ingredients from the top of the jar are drawn down into the cutting zone by the upper blades with serrated edges.
It has unique blending types with 6 pre-set programs which allow you to easily create drinks, hot soups, crushed ice, finely chopped coffee beans, and coarsely chopped salsa.

It has a 56 oz Heat and Shock resistant GLASS Pitcher which allows you to blend HOT or COLD without worry. It has the Easy Clean Auto rinse function AND removable blades AND Dishwasher safe carafe. Add to this an included Stir Stick, 1000 watt Quatropole (TM) motor, and a 5 Year Motor warranty and all of these features make this one “hard to beat blender! This blender can be purchased for $520.
