'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
Everyone loves a good milkshake, smoothie, or protein shake. The most frustrating part about making those at home, however, is an ineffective blender.
Upgrade to the Vitamix One blender, which covers all of your needs. It can break down frozen vegetables, fruit, chocolate chips (if you have a sweet tooth like I do), and more inside a 32oz. BPA-free container due to its powerful motor. A mini-tamper included with the blender allows you to push the items that don't want to cooperate towards the blades.
The blender is easy to control with a simple speed dial, which provides its best results when you turn it up high immediately after you close the lid. The product is not dishwasher-safe, but you can drop some water mixed with some dish soap into the container and turn it on the highest speed to get the cleaning done quickly.
With a price of $175, the Vitamix One mixer is seeing its lowest price ever on Amazon. This unit rarely sees goes below its normal $250 selling point, so now is the time to buy this powerful blender.
