Blender Manufacturing Insights

  • Many manufacturers have transitioned to using high strength plastic containers "because they are shatterproof and tested to withstand the high speeds of modern blenders. Most blender companies use a BPA-free high-impact plastic called Eastman Tritan."
  • Glass blenders do not contain BPA compounds which are found in some plastic products. Options for glass blenders are also more limited.

Research Strategy

We reviewed various consumer reports and media articles on the best glass blenders. We focused on glass blenders as they were the main alternative to plastic blenders. Options for glass blenders appeared limited due to many manufacturers transitioning to using high strength plastic containers. However, we were able to identify some of the best glass blenders based on ranked lists and which were supported by multiple sources. We narrowed the identified lists down to blenders that were made from glass and that appeared to be dominantly plastic-free and could be found in Switzerland. We also tried identifying soup makers, but the ones that we came across either had plastic or did not appear to be available in Switzerland. We also tried verifying if the parts of the identified products, such as the lids (which may potentially come into contact with food) were made of plastic, however, information on this did not appear available. To verify this, we reviewed all the product makers' websites to find more details on their product specifications. We also checked user manuals, product brochures or catalogs, seller websites, and third-party product reviews, however, descriptions of materials used typically described the body and the base of the blenders and details on the materials they use on lids or other parts did not appear publicly available. However, some sources noted that blender lids are usually made of rubber and the cap is generally plastic or glass.
