This commercially rated blender belongs to Omega’s 3 Horse Power lineup of blenders, but it is the base model for the series. Meaning that it doesn’t have all the features offered by the full featured Omega BL630. Having said that, if you’re just looking for a powerful blender that can be used in your business, or own your own kitchen counter, and don’t care too much about some of the bells and whistles, then the Omega BL420S is a great choice.

Omega Blenders are tagged as having the perfect combination of features, warranty, quality construction, and durability. As far as features go, the Omega BL420S is simplicity at its finest. 1500 watts of power – about three times the power of most lower end blenders – an on/off toggle and a high/low speed toggle. And in a lot of cases that’s all you’ll need from your blender. Powerful enough to blend fibrous, leafy vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds and more, to a smooth velvety consistency. And as I’m sure you know, when you use a juicer, you mostly lose all that wonderful fiber. So get yourself a blender powerful enough to handle it and drink all the nutritional value instead of throwing it away.

 

Omega Blender BL420S 3HP Pros & Cons

Pros: Powerful 1500 watt motor – BPR free – Unbreakable container – Tight fitting lid – Heavy base with gripper feet.

Cons: A little low on features.

 

If you decide on the Omega BL420S, which only has the on/off and speed controls, you’ll need to be more involved with your blending process than you would be with a more expensive blender with more features like the Omega BL630. What do I mean by that? With the BL630 the blender automatically varies the speed. Every so often the speed will drop, allowing things in the blender to start to settle closer to the blades, then boom, the blender speeds up again catching all the chunks that had been flying around the container, not getting caught by the blades. You’ll want/need to do that manually with the BL420. There’s always a trade off right? Spend an extra $150 or do a few things manually. You decide what works best for you and what you’re budget will allow. The BL420S has a 64 oz container. If you need something even bigger, you can get the Omega BL430 which is the same model but with an 82 oz container. (The overall dimensions are slightly larger.)

One thing I should mention. If you’ve read the main page of our blender reviews, you’ll see that I state that blenders that have removable blades are a plus. While the Omega Blenders do have removable blades, Omega recommends not removing them for cleaning. Instead you would just let your container sit for a bit in warm/hot soapy water as soon as you’ve finished blending.

Omega blenders also come with a 10 year warranty, which is one of the best in the industry. They stand behind their products.

If you plan to store this on your counter, make sure you have enough room under your cabinets. It stands 19 inches high, which may be too big to fit under a lot of cabinets.
