Blenders are regarded among the most important appliances in modern kitchens today. Apart from the fact that they help you make your own smoothies and baby food, they also help you prepare your cooking ingredients in a faster and more convenient manner. While lots of manufacturers have entered the blender industry in recent times, some still stand out among the very best; one of which is Kenwood.
Blenders usually come in 2 varieties; they are available as some people call the Wet Blenders, which are blenders used to grind fruits and vegetables/foods that have water in them e.g. Tomatoes, Onions, Beans, etc. They also come in the form of Dry Blenders, which are used to blend dry foods e.g. Egusi, Crayfish, Dried Peppers, Ogbono seeds, Pepper soup spices, Herbs, Coffee beans, nuts etc.
Knowing how women love their kitchen, they always want everything in their kitchen to be of high quality, and to be always in a good working condition. This makes women look for different brands of blenders in the market, and these brands could be expensive sometimes, but most women prefer quality to prices. Some of the popular brands of blenders in South Africa include Binatone, Moulinex, Kenwood, LG, Scanfrost etc. A lot of these brands have become overly expensive (due to exchange rates of the dollar), while some other brands are expensive to maintain, and get damaged easily. However, one brand that has managed to remain relevant in the Kitchen Appliance industry is Kenwood brand. Kenwood blenders are durable, and are very affordable, as well as they are long-lasting (they rarely get spoilt).
Kenwood blenders have dominated the market for many reasons. The fact that they are relatively easy to use and are highly efficient, blending you spice in the sleekest of manners, make the brand a darling to many people.
This review is to help you know the various Kenwood blenders available in South Africa, and what makes them popular in the Kitchen Appliance industry.
