Eat cleaner with this high-tech, “smart” Blendtec Designer 725 blender ($650, Blendtec.com) to not only take advantage of spring’s fresh fruits and veggies for smoothies, but also to make your own nut butter, create your own salsa or grind coffee beans. The 100-speed (yes, literally) blender allows you to fine-tune its speed with the swipe of a finger on its touchscreen slider. It also comes with pre-set blend times and speed patterns, specifically calibrated for everything from smoothies and whole juices to ice cream and cleaning. The commercial-quality blender even learns from your usage habits, offering blending tips in direct response to how you use it, and it helps you troubleshoot potential problems in blending.

Added bonuses to make it worth the splurge: It’s extremely easy to clean and surprisingly quiet for its 1725 watts of power.
