If you own an Instant Pot, this smoothie maker’s versatility will come as no surprise. As with the brand’s highly popular pressure cookers, its blenders feature customizable cooking along with multiple built-in smart programs, including a separate setting for smoothies.

To make your favorite smoothie, simply add your favorite ingredients and push the smoothie setting to get started. You can also use the pre-set pulse setting or take control with the manual pulse setting.

The Ace Plus is great for smoothies but it can do a lot of other things too, such as crush ice, puree food, make nut, oat, rice and soy milk and whip up a batch of hot soup. Even better, you can customize the puree, soup and keep warm smart program settings.

With 10 available blending speeds, you can gently incorporate ingredients or summon maximum blending power to pulverize ingredients. It’s evident that Instant Pot thought of just about everything when creating this smoothie maker, down to its innovative real-time temperature display, a premium pitcher with a concealed heating element, eight stainless steel blades and a keep warm setting that keeps food warm up to two hours after hot blending.

If you tend to hesitate because of the post-blending clean-up, it may help to know that this smoothie blender has a pulse-controlled cleaning program that cleans the container in less than a minute. The Ace Plus automatically shuts off to keep its motor from overheating.

The Ace Plus has 1,300 watts of blending power and a powerful 26,500 rpm motor. If you don’t need quite so much power, you can save some money with the more basic but still well-equipped Ace Nova blender.
