STAMFORD, Conn.-- March 1, 2019 -- Philips continues to make healthy food preparation easier with the launch of the new Philips High Speed Power Blender. The High Speed Power Blender uses powerful, innovative ProBlend Extreme technology to create the perfect blend, even blending those unwanted seeds and stems that are usually left behind in seconds for the smoothest results. Multiple pre-settings also allow users to create a versatile mix of delicious drinks and meals to help increase daily intake of fruits and vegetables.
Philips High Speed Power Blender pulverizes both soft and hard ingredients in seconds to ensure smoother results compared to other blenders. A powerful, 2.4 horsepower/1800-watt motor rotates durable blades at 35,000 revolutions per minute to blend a variety of ingredients from soft fruits to hard nuts and seeds – the blender is even powerful enough to blend an avocado seed.
“At Philips, our appliances help to seamlessly integrate healthy eating into consumers’ lifestyles,” said Eline de Graaf, Marketing Director for Philips. “Philips High Speed Power Blender is more than a traditional blender. It transforms fruits and vegetables – including even the firmest nuts and seeds – into delicious, nutritious and smooth blends, so people can drink themselves healthier and incorporate more nutrients into their diets.”
Philips High Speed Power Blender is more than just a smoothie maker, and is versatile enough to create a variety of healthy, homemade drinks and meals throughout the day, including nut butters, sauces, almond milk, pizza dough and more. The blender features a digital screen with five pre-programmed modes – Smoothie, Frozen Dessert, Soup, Nuts, and Ice Crushing – to create drinks and meals at the perfect consistency with the touch of a button. A manual mode also allows users to select their ideal speed, from a gentle blend to quick bursts. Each blender comes with a complimentary recipe booklet featuring a variety of recipes for smoothies, juices, soups, butters, sauces and doughs.
Family members can sleep in peace – and you can have easy conversations – while the blender is running, thanks to a noise-reducing dome that minimizes blender noise for a quieter operation, which is two times quieter than a traditional countertop blender. The blender jar is also large, lightweight, BPA-free and prepares up to two liters of liquid. Cleanup is simple, with a dishwasher safe jar and an easy-to-clean body.
Philips High Speed Power Blender is available at William-Sonoma and Amazon.com for an MSRP of $599.95. Visit Philips.com for more details about Philips High Speed Power Blender and the full range of kitchen appliances from Philips.
