For someone in later life, a pretty basic task like using a blender for a smoothie, shake, or similar liquid refreshment can be quite a challenge, especially for those with diminished hand strength. What elderly users want from a blender is a stable and lightweight design that makes it easy to prepare a fresh juice whenever desired.
Opinions seem to show there is no particular preference between the hand-held, personal, and counter-top models, since each category can offer the desired qualities to make a safe and easy-to-use blender. Brands that get the most favor from users include NutriBullet, Toastmaster, Cuisinart and Hamilton Beach.
Blender power is a key characteristic of these kitchen appliances. Elderly users say the high-speed blenders make it easier to liquefy the ingredients to produce the creamier and smoother outcome that is free of sizable chunks. Users prefer the blenders with easy to remove lids, which is appreciated by those with diminishing hand strength. An elderly friendly blender described by users is certain to offer ease in cleanup, with parts that are easy to take apart and includes minimal nooks and crannies that can make it difficult to clean. On average, the price range of these blenders is below $100, which puts them in a more affordable category for the avid blender user.
