Do all blenders have the same settings?
No, not all blenders have the same settings. Though you will typically find some variation of low, medium, high and Pulse, this can come in the form of numbered speeds, tasks such as Puree or Chop, or even preset recipe programs like Soup or Smoothie.
For simplicity and a streamlined set of functions, look for a blender that has around three speeds and Pulse. Blenders with more powerful motors may offer a wider range of settings, recipe programs and variable speeds so you can blend with precision. Variable speeds can help you achieve the difference in texture between a fine puree and a coulis or a variety of salsas from chunky to smooth.
