We like the Cuisinart Velocity Ultra ($100) for its powerful motor that can crush ice for our Raspberry-Lime Rickey Slushies just as easily as it blends hearty ingredients like fresh kale to smooth perfection. This blender handles big jobs, too: The lightweight, BPA-free plastic jar holds up to 7 cups, making it possible to puree soups like our Golden Gazpacho all in one batch.
