It’s the middle of the month and it’s time for a blender review. Those of you who read Kitchen Authority regularly will know that I have a thing for blenders. This is the 10th blender that we’ve reviewed on the site and that’s a milestone that we’re happy to celebrate. We’re going to release a little comparison piece in the next few weeks so you can see how they all stack up against each other.
For now, I am looking at the Proctor Silex 2-Speed Blender and let’s talk about how it performed when tackling the all-important task of making smoothies in my home.
Clean With Ease
If you don’t know how to clean a blender and that’s putting you off buying one, the good news is that it doesn’t have to be a fiddly pain in the neck. In fact, it’s surprisingly easy if you use this awesome hack:
Not so crazy, right?
So, How Did The Proctor Silex Measure Up?
I don’t think there’s anything wrong the Proctor Silex from a blending perspective. It made short work of my smoothies (as it should) and there was nothing wrong with the finished product.
However, I do have two minor complaints about this blender. The first is that it’s noisy. I mean really, really noisy – much noisier than any other blender I’ve tested. Given that it’s not the highest power blender I’ve put through its paces; this feels like a design fault.
The second is that it feels a bit flimsier than some of the other blenders. I am not sure that the Proctor Silex is going to last more than a year or two before parts need replacing.
The price tag is pretty low though and on that basis, I will recommend The Proctor Silex 2-Speed Blender. Check it out on Amazon here.
