Budget NutriBullet Alternatives US – Affordable personal blenders

Not everyone can justify spending hundreds on a personal blender, for those who just wants a basic blender that works, without burning a hole in the pocket, here are 5 best low cost personal blenders for the rest of us.

Premium blenders like NutriBullet, Nutri Ninja, Vitamix S-series are powerful high performing blenders with a powerful motor averaging around 900-1000Watt. These cheaper alternatives however are not quite as powerful and would require a bit more time when blending harder ingredients such as ice, carrots, kales or nuts. Still, they do a good job with a bit of patience.

To make your personal blender last longer, we recommend adding resting time during and between blending. This stops the motor from overheating especially when dealing hard ingredients.

3. Hamilton Beach 51102/51103 175Watt – BLENDING

Hamilton Beach’s personal blender design is playing it safe and a little conventional in our books. While the blender offers two small blender jugs with travel lids, these are still blender jugs with the blades intact and attachment surface at the bottom of the jug. Unlike other personal blenders and premium blenders seen here, with its’ swap-able blending covers for travel lids, the Hamilton Beach plays it safe with an upright jug in favour of the new flipping the container over the base profile.

It comes complete with durable stainless steel blades and pulse blending action, enough to prepare a variety of great-tasting smoothies, shakes and more. The blending container functions as a mixing jar during blending and doubles as a portable travel mug with attachable drinking lid. For a lightweight, easy-to-use, inexpensive personal blender, the Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender is the one to consider.
