Why do people buy blenders to make bulletproof coffee? Because, the key to making the best tasting cup of Bulletproof coffee is to make sure you blend it!
You may know that I have been putting butter in my coffee for years now. However, I started off by making a BIG mistake. I didn’t blend the hot coffee, butter and MCT oil all together!
What happened was that I ended up with a massive oil slick on the top of my butter coffee — learn from my error.
I upgraded my morning routine of how I make my coffee by buying a fast blender for hot coffee. I’ve never looked back since and no longer drink a butter, coconut oil slick coffee.
I was interested to find out what are some of the best blenders to use for making Bulletproof Coffee for me to review.
So, I went out researching online for what are some of the top rated & most recommended brands that make good blenders designed for blending hot liquids that are available to buy online.
The Best Blenders for Bulletproof Coffee
- Professional-Grade Power
- 6 Pre-programmed Cycles
Here is the list of blenders for hot coffee on the market we reviewed for you to compare.
1. Blendtec Total Blender
Blendtec is one of the recommended top end luxury hot liquid blenders. It might be one of the most costly options, however, there is a good reason for that. It is an AWESOME blender!
Whenever I hear Dave Asprey talking about blenders he always mentions two brands, Blendtec or Vitamix. In fact, you’ll see a Blendtec being used in his official how to make Bulletproof Coffee video on Youtube.
These are also the blenders I saw being used at the annual Bulletproof conference coffee bar. The model you see in the picture is the Black Blendtec Total Blender Classic FourSide Jar.
This model made the company famous when it was used in the viral marketing YouTube video ads called “Will It Blend?”. It was used to blend crazy things like glow sticks, iPhones, crowbars and other items not meant for eating or drinking. This was just to prove how powerful its blades and motor are.
We only need it to blend freshly brewed hot coffee along with grass-fed butter, Brain Octane oil and maybe some collagen and chocolate powder.
2. Vitamix Explorian Blender
Vitamix is our other premium blender brand that is a recommend blender for Bulletproof coffee.
There is always a debate of choosing Vitamix vs Blendtec. For our needs of blending hot liquids, like coffee, either one is great!
The Vitamix E310 model is compatible with the Vitamix Stainless Steel container accessory.
The Vitamix Stainless Steel container is an alternative options to using a BPA free plastic container or glass container. The 48 oz stainless steel container can be used to when blending hot liquids like Bulletproof coffee or making keto soups.
The Vitamix is also on the high end of budgets, but is another HIGHLY recommended choice that will just do the job.
3. Ninja Foodi Blender
The Ninja Professional is a good start when looking for a more budget friendly blender. The Ninja Professional is a decent kitchen blender that will definitely do the job of getting a good head of foam on your butter coffee in the morning.
This very popular blender is made by the company, SharkNinja. The family owned company is said to be in operation for over a century & is based in the USA. Other popular products names you might recognise in their catalogue include: Ninja mega kitchen system & Nutri Ninja. Their selling point is that they aim to produce highly functional, innovative household appliances and products suited for the lifestyles of busy people. Does that sound like you?
I personally quite like the design of this one. It is appears simple, yet sturdy. It has a nice big handle to hold onto with blades that fill the mixing chamber. I get the feeling it wouldn’t look out of place in a commercial coffee shop. The model you see here is the Ninja Professional Blender, model number BL610.
It comes in one colour option only: Black
4. Hamilton Beach Multi-Mix Blender
The Hamilton Beach Multi-Mix blender is super popular cheap blender. The Hamilton Beach would be my go to budget kitchen top blender. It is smaller than the others, but packs a strong enough punch to whizz all the Bulletproof ingredients into a smooth creamy topped foam. The company got its name from the co-founders L.H. Hamilton and Chester Beach back in 1904. The company owns multiple household brand name appliances from coffee makers to air purifiers.
What I like about this device is not only does it use glass, but how compact it is. This would be perfect for quickly making 1-2 cups of joe in the morning. So great if you live on your own or maybe you are the coffee drinker whilst others in the house drink tea.
The biggest bummer for me on this machine is that it doesn’t have a removable feeder cap. I love adding Bulletproof collagelatin to my version of the coffee recipe to give a silky mouthfeel, plus health benefits. You can still add the powder, but will need to stop the machine, remove the lid and then add it into the mix.
The model you see here is the Hamilton Beach Multi-Mix blender, model number 54210.
It comes in one colour option only: Black
5. Magimix le Blender
The Magixmix is the blender I actually use in my home in the UK. The Magimix is a great middle of the road costing blender. It is only available in the UK and Europe and is a FANTASTIC alternative to the Vitamix and Blendtec.
My wife and I did a lot of research on different brands on we ended up buying this one to try out. That was several years ago and it is still working perfect! The model you see here is the Magimix le Blender, model number 11610.
It comes in five available colour options:
- Stainless steel finish
6. KitchenAid Immersion Stick Blender
The KitchenAid hand blender is for people specifically looking for a hand held stick blender. The KitchenAid stick blender is for when someone prefers the easy storage and mobility a stick immersion blender provides. KitchenAid don’t just make stick blenders lots they manufacture from small to big commercial ones like the Pro Line series. The company produced its iconic stand mixer back in 1919 and has been producing a wide range of kitchen appliances for years.
I choose this particular immersion blender since it comes with a mixing cup and lid that you can put your coffee into. I personally have never used this type of blender as I think it could get very messy and is more of a hassle for me compared to a countertop version. However, we are different kinds of coffee hacking baristas who love different tools of the trade :)
The model you see here is the KitchenAid 2-Speed Hand Blender, model number KHB1231.
It comes in twelve colour options:
- Empire Red
- Contour Silver
- Crystal Blue
- Onyx Black
- Green Apple
- Majestic Yellow
7. Basic Milk Frother
The PowerLix milk frother is ideal for quick mini-frothing ability. The PowerLix milk frother is for when you when a small device that runs on batteries and can try quickly whizz up a cappuccino type froth. I couldn’t find much information on the company that makes the frother other than it is a drop shipping company specialising in baking and other kitchen equipment.
I must admit I have played with using a battery powered milk frother before. I had one in the kitchen and it was convenient to try before investing in a proper blender. I can see it being useful when travelling. Say you go camping, self-catering airBnB, or going through an airport possible. It is small and can be easily stored anywhere. Since it doesn’t require mains power it is usable anywhere.
What you will learn though is once you use it that it just isn’t strong enough to get the good head of foam you want on your Bulletproof coffee. It just isn’t fast enough. Saying that it will do the job and again there might be a specific reason a frother is more suitable for your situation.
The model you see here is the PowerLix Milk Frother.
It comes in one color option: Black
