With the best blenders costing around $500, more consumers are looking for cost-effective options that can do just as good of a job.
Better known for its excellent yet affordable robot vacuums, Eufy recently entered the blender space with the goal of providing strong performance at a low price point.
I especially liked how the MiracleBlend D1 was able to pulverize seeds and kale leaves to produce a truly smooth smoothie.
Compared to the high-end brands, the Eufy MiracleBlend D1 Blender is inexpensive (currently $120 on Amazon), and though it has trouble with nut butters, it gives the big boys a run for their money when it comes to making smoothies and cleaning up easily afterward.
I have experience using countless brands of blenders ranging from the bottom-of-the-line $20 units to the do-everything $700 powerhouses.
I’ve noticed that there is a strong correlation between price and performance. However, there are the occasional outliers that work better than their price suggests.

My experiences with the Eufy Blender
Eufy sent me a review copy of the MiracleBlend D1 for free. I only received the motor base and pitcher. It didn’t come with a user manual, recipe book, or the vacuum-sealed cup, which typically come with the unit according to the Amazon product page. So, I can’t speak to the cup’s benefits.
The jar is square and features a curved bottom that is helpful for keeping ingredients engaged in the blend and achieving the sought-after vortex effect, which is sort of like a small tornado. It’s made of BPA-free plastic. The lid is also plastic and features a clear removable measuring cup in the center, where you can add ingredients while the blender is running.
The Eufy Blender comes with an 18-month limited warranty, which covers all parts of the blender, including the jar and motor, as long as you use it for household purposes (and not commercial).
The MiracleBlend D1 has a powerful 1200W motor and two pre-programmed settings: clean and smoothie. The control knob has settings of Off, On, Low, Medium, and High. There are approximately 30 speed gradations between Low and High. There’s also a pulse option.
How the Eufy Blender performed
I’m the kind of weirdo who likes to read user manuals before using an appliance because you can learn interesting nuances about a gadget this way. So, I procured an electronic copy of the user manual. However, I know most people have better uses for their time than reading about a blender, a device you’ve probably used hundreds of times. Consequently, I gave …read more
