The 10 Best Blenders For Ice
This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Anybody who has ever tried making a shake or frozen margarita with the average home blender knows that it can be nearly impossible to get a perfectly smooth, shard-free consistency. These high-powered models don't suffer from that problem. They can all liquefy the hardest of ingredients, even those fibrous foods other machines can't handle. We've included both commercial and residential options. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

We are very aware of the fact that in order to effectively crush ice, blenders need very powerful motors. For that reason, we only included the mightiest of models. Unfortunately, that meant there was often a trade off in aesthetics, since the most effective options often feature a somewhat commercial design. We did our best to balance style with functionality to bring you the best of both worlds.
