If you can do without bells and whistles, the Beehive is a smart bet. With 600 watts of blending power, a stainless-steel blade, and an idiot-proof dashboard consisting of a single two-speed toggle (for on and pulse), the Beehive easily handles the important stuff, like fruit-heavy breakfast smoothies and frozen margaritas on weekends. Plus, the chrome styling makes for a classier counter ornament than the high-end monsters. Our only complaint: it sounds like a cement grinder.
