Are plastic blenders toxic?

Toxic Plastic Numbers

It doesn’t matter what your American mixer needs are or what your budget is, because I have conducted an in-depth analysis to include the best rated options suitable for diversified usage needs and different budget ranges.

To make this list an unbiased resource for choosing the best American blenders, I contacted 30 experts and discussed various aspects to consider. After much discussion, I reviewed customer reviews, researched name brands and many other things. Because my goal is to recommend products that are very economical.

Plastic is toxic

We find blenders from 200 W to more than 1000 W, the first ones being the cheapest and the more powerful ones, more expensive. Depending on the use you want to give it, you will have to choose one or another option, being those of more than 700 W the ones that stand a daily use.

Most hand blenders are made of stainless steel or plastic, or a combination of both. And, as a general rule, the best ones are those with stainless steel feet. As for the glass blenders, reinforced glass is the perfect material for the mixing bowl.

If you are interested in the topic of toxics in cookware, I highly recommend you take a look at this Conasi article where you will find detailed information about stainless steel and this one about Teflon and plastics.

The lighter they are, the easier they are to handle and carry with you everywhere. If you can’t live without your morning smoothie and you take your blender with you on all your trips, I recommend that you opt for an arm blender or a Personal Blender type glass blender, so that they are easy to transport. However, if what you want is robustness, more power for all kinds of preparations and you do not plan to move it from home, a glass blender will be the best option.

What the plastic releases when heated

Chemically PET is a linear thermoplastic polymer, since it softens when heated and hardens when cold, reversibly, it has a high degree of crystallinity. PET plastic is produced by a polycondensation reaction between terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol. It belongs to the group of synthetic materials called polyesters.

I personally would radically eliminate it from regular use. I would only use it if I had no other alternative, for example when I leave home, and I have no access to water to drink and I am forced to use a PET water bottle. (It is rare that it happens because I usually go equipped with my bottle with filter, but an oversight can have anyone). I would also avoid clothing made with PET (polyester) at all costs for the same reason.

High-density polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer of the olefinic polymer family. It is formed with many repeating ethylene units. This plastic is also labeled HDPE (high Density Polyethylene).
