A BLENDi blender is the gift that you’ll want to give and that they’ll want to get – but get yourself one first just to make sure

Blendi (Brookline, MA) has seen many of their users choosing to give
BLENDi blenders as gifts and is now seeing non-users as choosing them
as gifts for others. While the trend is one that they appreciate, Blendi
CEO Jonathan Katz offers this advice. “If it’s at all possible, buy one for
yourself first and use it for preparing a variety of foods to get a beter
sense of how many ways a BLENDi can enhance anyone’s days.”
For friends, family members or others with newborns, BLENDi can crush
baby food from fresh ingredients. Health and fitness aficionados can
make smoothies – as can anybody with not enough lunch-hour. In the
heat, a BLENDi can transform ice cubes into crushed ice for frozen
coffee, cocktails or mocktails. Epicureans will enjoy how a BLENDi can
contribute to homemade salad dressings. And even if it isn’t about
Cinco de Mayo, a snacker or a “couch potato”, a BLENDi is a singularly
handy way to be fresh and inventive when making salsa. Do any of
these sound like people you know?
BLENDi can handle fresh, dried or frozen fruits (cut into sensible sizes), vegetables, peppers, many kinds
of liquid ingredients(water, milk, oil, vinegar, fruit juices and more), yogurt, ice cream or sherbet (let them
soften), powders, cereal, even chocolate (and other) chips.
The BLENDi Pro+ 17-ounce portable blender ($59.99) delivers 120 Wats of power to its motor and spins
its premier stainless steel blending blades at 17,000 RPM. It’s available in 10 colors: black, turquoise, white,
blush, rose red, lime, lavender, navy blue or hot pink.
The new BLENDi X 24-ounce portable blender ($79.99) gets 20,000 RPM from its 150-Wat motor and adds
a pulse mode. That big 24-ounce capacity makes it today’s largest ice-crushing portable blender. It’s
available in 7 colors: black, white, mint, turquoise, pink, purple and forest green.
Every BLENDi can convert to a water botle or a travel container, comes with a protective blade cover and
has a no-mess spout top with an extra D-loop keeper to keep an accidental press on the flip-open buton
from turning into an accident.
