My guess is that many people started off with the back to basic smoothie maker when they are first introduced to make homemade smoothies. Well, the back to basic smoothie makers are value for money as they are sold at very low prices with basic features. Many people are willing to take the drop in features for a lower price as they might not need any of the features since they are just beginners.
I have many of these beginner friends who went on to buy a more advance smoothie maker in a couple of months when they felt that the back to basic smoothie maker does not meet their standards for creating delicious smoothies. There is a limit on what you can do with the back to basic smoothie maker, and this is why I’ll advise you to get a more advance smoothie maker at the start, and most importantly, you must buy one with the speed control feature.
The main limiting feature on the back to basic smoothie maker is the standard bleeding speed. The standard blending speed is only capable for blending the simple smoothie recipes which only has one main ingredients. No doubt, it does a great job at blending the simple recipes, however, the more complex recipes will prove to be a problem for them. This is because the complex recipes deal with a few types of ingredients and you will need to control the blending speed to produce tasty smoothies.
In addition, the blending speed can also affect the texture of the smoothies. For example, you can use the high speed blend to cut the ingredients into find bits and produce a fine textured smoothie. Also, you can do the opposite and change to a lower speed to blend a coarse texture smoothie.
If you want to know more about the types of smoothie makers which come with a speed control feature, then you should visit Amazon. They have some reputable brands of smoothie makers listed on their site. In addition, they are also famous for their competitive pricing structure. You could be paying much lesser if you buy other kitchen gadgets such as the juicer machine, of coffee maker together with your smoothie maker.
