Kmart’s range of blenders is competitively priced within the market, although keep in mind it’s about more than just dollars and cents – it’s what’s under the hood that counts. We review some models in more detail below.


Kmart Drink Bottle Blender − $17

Kmart Drink Bottle Blender

Coming in at the cheap and cheerful end of Kmart’s range of blenders is the Drink Bottle Blender. Tapping into the trend of portable blenders, Kmart’s cheapest model may surprise you with what it can offer you. With a small footprint, you’ll barely notice it on your kitchen counter, and it features a 300W power output, a one-touch blending function with an on/off switch, and a 600ml BPA-free sports bottle to take with you! Kmart also offers a USB portable blender with similar features for $19.

Kmart Mini Blender − $17

Kmart mini blender

This mini blender is ideal for households short on bench and cupboard space and can blitz through spices, fruits, and veggies with ease. It features two speed settings, a pulse function, a glass cup with a pop-out cap, and 300W of power output. This model weighs just 2.8kg.

Kmart 1.5L Stainless Steel Blender − $29

Kmart 1.5L Stainless Steel Blender

This compact 1.5L blender features heavy-duty 1.4mm stainless steel blades to crush ice and make easy work of frozen ingredients and fibrous veggies. Features include two speed settings, an ice crush and pulse function, and a detachable tempered glass jug that can withstand both hot and cold temperatures.

1.5L Ice Crush Blender − $39

Kmart ice crush blender

Designed with five speed settings, this ice crush blender from Kmart takes the guesswork out of making smoothies, slushies, and frozen desserts. This model also features an ice crush function, a no re-set thermostat on the motor, lighting under the knob, and a 1.5L tempered glass jug.

Kmart 1.5L Digital Blender − $49

Kmart 1.5L Digital Blender

This digital blender from Kmart easily rivals similar models from big-name brands like Ninja and NutriBullet, but for less than half the price. This high-tech blender offers a whopping 10 pre-set functions including purée, blend, grind, chop, pulse, frozen slush, ice crush, high and low. It also comes with a BPA-free blending jug and one grinding cup.

Kmart Nutritional Pro Blender 900W − $65

Kmart Nutritional Pro Blender 900W

Modelled from the various on-trend ‘Nutri’ blenders, this Anko Nutritional Pro Blender packs a wallop for the price. Seriously, in this price range, you’d be lucky to get 500W of power from big-name brands, barely enough to make juice. With this model, you get 900W to make thick smoothies, dips, soups, and sauces. This blender comes with interchangeable blending and grinding blades, BPA-free cups (500ml & 800ml), and a manual reset function when the appliance is turned off.

Are Kmart blenders worth it?

For the price, Kmart blenders cannot be beaten. The motors included aren’t overly impressive, but aren’t inadequate by a long shot. The 1.5L digital blender is the standout model of the department store’s range; it packs a lot of nifty functions and settings that some premium brands have on their blenders that cost much more. Kmart blenders are a great budget buy for all your blending and ice crushing needs!
