While we will gladly extol the virtues of the various $500 blenders on the market, not everyone needs something that luxe. If you’re in the market for, say, a well-reviewed blender with all of the power and none of the fluff, then you’ll want to check out the K400 Variable Speed Blender from KitchenAid, currently on for sale up to 28% off through September 26.

The classic model is discounted down to $200, and so is the K400 with a tamper (for those tired of poking various ingredients down with utensils) — and we’d suggest you spring for the latter. In addition, different hues are available for both units, so be sure to look at those offerings if color-coordinating your countertop is on the menu.

We love the K400 blender because it’s neither basic nor overbuilt. Here you’ll get a 56 oz (7 cups) plastic blending jar, three blending presets (Ice Crush, Icy Drinks and Smoothie), and a speed dial with five settings. Plus, since you’re buying direct from KitchenAid, they have a 90-day guarantee — so you can return it for any reason within three months if you keep the digital receipt.
