As soon as I saw this blender, I knew I needed to tell everyone about it. Not only am I always in search of the best blenders, food processors, mixers and other kitchen gadgets — it’s so beautifully designed I couldn’t resist. It’s the Beast Health B10+ Health Blender and Hydration Bottle, and I think everyone should get one immediately.
I’m not the only one raving about its blending abilities and sleek design. Early reviews rave about the blender, which is powered by a 1,000-watt motor fully capable of churning your choice of veggies, fruits, leafy greens, ice and protein powders into delicious smoothies, shakes and juices.
And, again, look at how cool it looks:
The Beast B10+ Health Blender also has quite the pedigree. It’s the first product from Beast Health, and the company’s CEO and Founder is Colin Sapire. If you’re not a health food nut or e-commerce expert, you likely don’t recognize the name, but Sapire was originally the Co-Founder of Capital Brands, the company that introduced the world to the NutriBulllet and the personal blender craze in the first place.
Now, Sapire is back on the scene with a new personal blender, and it’s not your ordinary kitchen gadget. I was lucky enough to receive a sample of the Beast Blender to try out and I loved it. It worked seamlessly with my thick morning smoothie and was super easy to clean. You can find my full review towards the end of this piece.
The Specs: The Beast B10+ Health Blender Is More Than a Pretty Face
The beautiful cylindrical shape is complemented by soft, uniform ripples that elevate its design beyond your classic personal blender. It’s made with powerful pulsing technology inside that blends together all your ingredients smoothly, jam-packing the nutrients into a liquid that’s easy to sip on the go. And speaking of on-the-go, the blender also doubles as a hydration bottle with the flip of a lid, so you can take your healthy smoothies anywhere you wish. The blender also comes with a small infuser that you can insert into your bottle and use to add flavor to water throughout the day.
That being said, the blender itself isn’t as small and travel-friendly as some ultra-portable blenders. That’s not really a problem for the vast majority of people (how often do you need to transport your blender?), but you might wish the blender was capable of handling a higher volume of ingredients. That being said, as a personal blender, it’s just the right size.
The housing is forged from CNC-machined aluminum and then giving a powder-coated finish that’s sophisticated and polished. The internal vessels are made of durable Tritan that’s leak-resistant and the blender monitors internal temperatures in case things get too hot and heavy during the mixing process. The ribbed design on the outside doesn’t just look pretty, it also maximizes the turbulence inside and makes the blending blades that much more powerful.
Currently, the blender comes in three colors — black, grey and white. It is more expensive than other personal blenders, especially if you buy the blender and hydration bottle together. However, if you really love homemade smoothies and protein shakes, then it’s worth the extra coin.
The Review: Testing the Beast B10+ Health Blender
After trying out the Beast Blender for a few weeks I can happily report that it works just as well as it looks. I mixed up my daily breakfast smoothie every day with ingredients including frozen fruit, a banana, greek yogurt, almond butter and spinach and it instantly blended them all seamlessly. There was no cranking, zero hang-ups on stubborn pieces of fruit and no chunks in the finished smoothie. Everything was incorporated thoroughly and the blender container was easy to drink out of afterward, saving me a dish.
There are a bunch of different components that come with the Beast. The base that plugs into the wall is quite heavy, even when compared with our bigger kitchen blender from Vitamix. However, it keeps it from slipping and sliding around during the blending process which I prefer. The wider blender bottles are beautifully designed, and the ridges not only add a unique look, they make them easier to hold and maneuver. All of the bottles, come to think of it, are heavier than your regular cup or water bottle. This isn’t a nuisance or a hindrance but actually makes them feel and look higher quality than most personal blenders.
After I loaded everything into the main blender piece and screwed on the blade attachment, it was super easy to flip over onto the engine base. It clicked into place instantly and it took one button to get it started. The Beast is VERY simple to use, with only one button and one-speed option, so it’s perfect for anyone who doesn’t like a lot of bells and whistles. The button also turned it off once the mix was sufficiently blended, and it was just as easy to pop off the base as it was to attach in the first place. It’s powerful enough that you don’t need higher settings, but for users who prefer more control, the one-speed setting may be a drawback (I didn’t mind it.)
The kit also came with a smaller blender container for storage with a few lid options, as well as a skinnier bottle with an optional infuser attachment for flavored water. The bottles are all glass which is great for taste and reusability, and everything matches. All of the parts also attach and detach intuitively, which makes having interchangeable parts much less confusing.
The Verdict: Buy It
Overall, I think the Beast is perfect for your average daily hydration, juice and smoothie needs. Since it doesn’t have adjustable speeds or blending options I don’t know if it should replace your main kitchen blender or food processor, but it’s a strong addition if you’re a serial blender like I am.
The verdict: This beautiful machine is the best personal blender I’ve ever tried.
Right now, you can only buy the Beast B10+ Health Blender at The Beast online store. If you want to save a little money, you can buy the blender without additional to-go containers (an add-on called the Hydration System), which brings the price down to $155.
