ATLANTA, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As good weather approaches, many will want to spend their afternoons and evenings enjoying the outdoors. Back patios become the center of attention for dinners and entertaining guests. Grills and kitchen appliances like blenders, juicers, and food processors are necessary tools for preparing dishes and drinks to be enjoyed by all. 10rate.com editors Brittany Rowland and others have done the hard work of sorting through all the different models to decide which are the best of the best. A rating of 1 through 10 was assigned to each product and editor's choice awards for Best Quality, Best Value, and Best Budget were awarded.
The grill is seen as the most important tool for cooking in the summertime. First up is Brittany's Best Gas and Propane Grills list. She chose the Weber Genesis E-310 as the best grill for the job. She said, "A sturdy natural gas grill built like a tank, the Weber Genesis E-310 heats up to 700 degrees F in under 10 minutes. The porcelain-enameled cast iron grates are excellent at searing meats, fish, and vegetables. A nice bonus feature that allows you to multitask is the mounted side burner that has 12,000 BTUs," in her review of the grill.
Appetizers and side items can be just as important as the main dish, especially when hungry guests are waiting on the grill master to finish up. Food processors are essential for making delicious dips and salsas. 10rate's Food Processor Reviews list gives top honors to KitchenAid's KFP750 model. It can "handle any chopping, pureeing, and grinding needs you have; it even kneads and mixes dough. While the vast 12-cup bowl handles the heavy-duty work, there's an additional 4-cup bowl for smaller tasks like chopping spices. All the bowls, blades, and discs are dishwasher-safe, making clean-up a breeze," the review notes. It is also available in a number of different colors.
Drinks are also a very important part of enjoying the good weather. It's good to start the day out with fresh juice. The Breville 800JEXL scored a 9 out of 10 with the Best Quality award on the Juicers Ratings list. Brittany says it is a powerful juicer with a "1,000-watt motor that extracts the most juice from foods, leaving whatever pulp is left very dry. With a three-inch circular feed tube, you can stick in whole carrots, tomatoes, apples, and oranges with little prep work chopping or cutting them into smaller pieces. There are two speeds to choose from, the faster one operating at 13,000 rpm."
Blenders are another great appliance for whipping up drinks for guests. Whether it be smoothies or margaritas, the right blender will make all the difference. The Blendtec TB-621-20 sits at the top of the Top Blender Comparisons list. Some of the strengths of this model listed in the review are, "1,560-watt blender mixes food at 29,000 rpm, 2-prong stainless steel blades thoroughly pulverize ice, Auto shut-off feature when blender finishes its pre-programmed cycle, and a large-sized square blending jar holds a generous amount of ingredients."
Sometimes the end to a great summer day is even better with a nice glass of wine. 10rate editors tested a number of glasses for the Wine Glasses Reivews list. They found the Riedel 9408/80 to be the best and gave it a score of 9.5 out of 10 and the Best Quality award. Reviewers said these glasses are "elegant, all-purpose red wine goblets, these Riedel Ouverture glasses feature a long, elongated bowl perfect for swirling your Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, or Merlot without splashing yourself. They are lightweight and delicate to hold."
