What are your summer plans? Getting caught up on reading by the pool? Making no-cook dinners as much as possible? Having all the frosé? If you don't already have a great blender, summer is the perfect time to invest in one.
And one of our favorite premium blenders, from the high-end brand Blendtec, is currently on sale on Amazon for 27 percent off.
Buy It!Blendtec Fit Classic Blender, $217
Blendtec's classic blender will do just about everything you expect a high-powered blender to do: It will crush ice, pulverize fibrous greens, and purée soups (should a cold front roll in). We've compared Blendtec to its biggest competitor, Vitamix, in the past, and while Vitamix has come out slightly ahead for at least one of our editors, there's no denying one big advantage that Blendtec has: it's currently a lot more affordable.
While there are other Blendtec blenders with more bells and whistles (and one of them is also currently on sale), this one has everything you'll need for most day-to-day functions. A 30-second button allows you to turn on the blender with the touch of a button, and two pulse buttons allow you to add extra power.
If you want more control, you can also get a deal on a certified refurbished Blendtec for $180. However, this sale on the Blendtec Fit is the best new deal currently on Amazon.
