This model may not be feature-heavy, but it does offer the exact type of power you need in a smoothie blender, and then some. Its motor is by far its best feature and it’s also the most important. In terms of power, the manufacturer definitely made a solid, powerful, reliable motor a priority. So, if you’re looking for a tough blender that’s reliable and able to handle making your green smoothies, take a closer look at what this best-selling model by Waring has to offer.
Overview and Features
This blender is categorized as commercial-grade, but it’s also perfect for home use. Unlike competing models, this blender is also priced affordably and comes with all the features you need in a model that can handle making your daily green smoothie. Right away, you’ll notice that this model doesn’t come loaded with any of the fancy features that competing models do. Instead, it comes with just a few speed options, it lacks an LCD display, and it doesn’t come equipped with any blending programs.
While the basic design may be a drawback for some, the fact that it’s packing a powerful motor should give you more than enough reason to buy. Too often, manufacturers design feature-packed blenders that are designed to attract buyers who don’t know much about blenders in general.
So, while you may end up with a machine that features ten blending programs, you won’t be able to use any of them efficiently, since many of these models don’t have the type of powerful motor to back it up. That’s where this model is different. You won’t even notice that it’s lacking blending programs once you fire it up. Impressive, durable, and efficient, Waring really outdid themselves this time around.
The motor features 3.5 HPs, which means it can handle blending, chopping, and processing challenging veggies such as sweet potatoes and kale. It comes loaded with a raptor blade and plenty of raw power, which will allow you to prepare a wide range of fruits and veggies, unlike lower-powered blenders that tend to struggle with pureeing leafy greens. In terms of wattage, this model comes in at fifteen hundred watts, with twelve and a half amps, operating at one hundred and twenty volts.
This model is able to generate plenty of force, with a blade system that moves at an impressive speed, which allows it to make short work of even frozen fruits and veggies, easily. With a speed up to thirty thousand RPMs, this is one heavy-duty motor.
Because of its impressive power, this model can also easily blend ice consistently, which is exactly what you need in a blender that’s designed to prepare shakes, smoothies, and frozen drinks. Because this is a commercial-grade blender, it can also be used in a professional setting. With a blender, consistency is very important. As an example, if you’re making a green smoothie, you’ll want it to have the desired consistency, without pieces of unblended veggies floating around. Fortunately, this model can provide the type of smooth consistency that makes it one of the best blenders for green smoothies on the market.
Ease Of Use
This model is very beginner-friendly and convenient to use. Both the caps and jars are transparent, so you can clearly see the container’s contents. The basic controls make it easy for you to choose the appropriate setting. These settings include pulse, low, and high, each of which is clearly marked. The simple toggle switch will allow you to easily and quickly adjust the speed settings before use. With the lowest setting, you can make soups, dips, and sauces. The high setting is perfect for leafy greens, tough root veggies, and ice. If you need some extra power, simply hit the pulse button.
Unfortunately, this model doesn’t come equipped with a self-cleaning function. However, it’s pretty simple to clean. The blender is easy to disassemble for cleaning, while the large container is dishwasher safe, which is a huge plus for many buyers. If you want to wash it by hand, simply soak the container and lid in warm soapy water, use a soft sponge to wipe it out, and dry it using a soft microfiber cloth.
The large sixty-four-ounce container is BPA-free and large enough to use to whip up smoothies for the entire family.
If you’re looking for a high-powered blender that’s available at a price you can afford, then your search is over. This model offers three and a half peak horsepower, which makes it perfect for both commercial and home use. The large capacity container is dishwasher-safe and BPA-free. In terms of efficiency, you’ll be blown away by how powerful this model really is.
It works for everything from smoothies and frozen drinks, to juice, dressings, soups, prep work, chopping, and more. The basic controls are very easy to use, however, the lack of any blending programs may be a drawback for some. The blender itself is very bulky, measuring in at eighteen inches tall, which can make it a bad choice if you have low hanging cabinets, or you’re short on counter space.
Smoothies and More
If you’re shopping for a model that you can use to try out the best juicing tips or make your regular morning smoothie, then the first thing you’ll need to know is how this model handles leafy greens. Fortunately, it can easily blend and process kale, collard greens, spinach, and more, without struggling or overheating.
It also does a great job with tougher veggies, such as sweet potatoes. The blade system can easily catch and process any type of produce, efficiently, and evenly, so you won’t end up with a half-pureed, half-chunky smoothie.
It also works well for nut milk, hummus, nut butters, coffee beans, dips, salsa, soups, and dressings. It can handle both hot and cold drinks like a pro. So, as you can see, not only is it efficient, but it’s also very versatile to boot.
Advantages and Disadvantages

- Powerful motor

Waring Versus Vitamix Explorian
Choosing between these two blenders is going to be a challenge. While the Vitamix offers an impressive 2.2 HPs, this model offers 3.5. However, the Vitamix offers more speed setting options, which will give you more control over the blending process. It also comes with a self-cleaning feature and can easily handle tough root veggies and leafy greens equally as well as this blender, and it’s available at a lower price.
But while the Vitamix comes loaded with more control and speed options, the Waring easily outpowers it. However, more control options make the blender more beginner-friendly, yet the lower-powered motor is definitely a drawback. In the end, the choice is yours, but if you can afford the higher price tag, you should stick with this model by Waring.
Conclusion and Rating
This model may not come with as many flashy features as competing blenders, but it easily blows other models in this price bracket out of the water. Instead of focusing on extra features, such as blending programs, the manufacturer, focused on creating a reliable blender that’s loaded with some serious power.
This type of power allows you to blend pretty much everything, including your favorite green smoothie or milkshake. It may not have a self-clean feature, but the fact that the container is dishwasher-safe more than makes up for that. Overall, this blender by Waring is built tough, versatile, and offers the type of efficient, reliable performance that every smoothie drinker is looking for. I gave this model a rating of four and a half out of five stars.
