Blender Recommendations?

Hey everyone. Just discovered this site few days ago via banner on Jack Kruse's site.



Today is my second day making the BP coffee (and first with MCT) and I am loving it! Could tell

an immediate difference yesterday image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />



My question is do any of you have feedback on the best (or worst) personal blenders to use.

I have an old big plastic thing on it's last leg. I was researching and debating on a mini/personal blender

vs. a handheld.



Any recommendations or suggestions from personal experience would be appreciated!

  • I use an immersion blender in a large container. Don't feel comfortable with very hot liquid in standard blenders.
  • If this is JUST for the coffee and other "light" jobs, then a stick blender is good. Get a powerful one or else it will crap out in a year. I have a Cuisinart, like this:

    If you want a real deal blender for everything from smoothies to soup to cracking nuts (practically), then you want a Vitamix. That's 10x the price and worth every penny if making liquids out of anything is desireable.



    Yeah, that's my referral link in there. Don't shoot me. image/icon_cool.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':cool:' />
  • I use a magic bullet. It's mall and fast, and I use the blender cup to drink the coffee, so I don't actually have a blender to wash. Another advantage is the plastic blender cup. No pre-heating is required since there's no glass to sap the heat.
  • In less than a week, I established a pretty bulletproof routine with the coffee. Here's the method if you want to get it done pretty quickly (per cup basis).



    Hardware: Aeropress coffee maker, stick blender, big coffee mug.



    Use big (12-16oz) coffee mug to heat up 6oz of water in microwave.

    While that's going, measure 2T of coffee into Aeropress, prep the filter paper, retrieve butter from fridge.

    Dump water into Aeropress & stir, immediately slice butter into mug where it will start melting. Add MCT.

    Retrieve and plug in stick blender.

    Stir coffee grounds again, add lid/filter, press into mug. Immediately eject Aeropress grounds, rinse and leave in rack.

    Blend coffee in the mug for up to 30 seconds.

    Rinse blender stick, leave in dishrack.

    Coffee is done and still pretty hot from the residual mug heat. Yay!



    This is about a 4 minute process start to finish. When done I have my mug of coffee and everything is clean and ready for cup #2 in a few hours.



    Have fun!

    Do you have any problems with the liquid leaking through? I know someone mentioned that with the heat it presses through the seal.



    edit* Nevermind I see where you said the blender part...I ordered one hopefully it will be here shortly.
  • Thanks for the feedback.

    I ordered a stick blender and next month will try the Aeropress. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
  • Hi guys,

    Had been on the lookout for a stick blender after going through 2 magic bullets (rip off ones) in the past few months. Found one of these on a work trip today:

    The Magic Bullet isn't so magical. My second blade attachment is leaking now. I guess it isn't good for hot beverages. I'm now using my Oster beehive blender. Loud as heck, but very powerful. Overkill for bulletproof coffee, but should last.
  • Has anyone ever tried the Aerolatte frothing blender? it looks real easy to use right in your cup. Just wondering if it is powerful enough?
  • I use the Magic Bullet at home haven't had any problems with it leaking, in fact it seems to cause a vacuum. At work/travel I use the MooLatte frothing blender..it works ok, It is powerfull enough to get everything spinning and mix bit, everything starts to separate shortly after you stop.

    I've been using the Aerolatte to go for the past month or so and I must say that I have been very impressed with this little device. Normally what i do is use an immersion blender to give the BPC its initial emulsifying blend and then once i pour it in to my mug I'll hit it with the aerolatte for a few seconds to top it off with a great head of foam. In other istances i use only the aerolatte if i'm travelling and it has done just fine. Definitely reccommened :) . If you are curious to read more reviews here is a link

  • But if You follow Joe Rogan Loyally I guess it's all about blendtech


  • I bought a blendtec about a year ago and love it.  Bulletproof coffee is awesome.  Amazing vegetable + butter soups.  Bulletproof ice cream.  The list goes on and on. 


     


    After doing a bunch of research I think QVC has the best price for the blendtec with the wildside jar for about $375.

    I use an electronic stirrer for BP coffee. Works well, quick easy, no mess.
