The Instant Pot is our top-rated pressure cooker. (Here are six reasons we’ve fallen in love with it.) Imagine our delight at hearing about the Ace 60 Cooking Blender, a super-high performance blender from the genius minds who brought us the Instant Pot! The Ace does everything its high-tech competition does, but at a fraction of the cost.

The Ace might be a contender for our Best Loved Brands blender next year. Here are three things about it that we’re absolutely loving:
1. One-touch programming
The Ace comes with eight one-touch smart settings that, like the Instant Pot’s one-touch smart settings, help take guesswork out of the picture. Four of the programs are for cold foods:
- Smoothies—hello, pina coladas
- Frozen Desserts
- Crushed Ice
- Nut/Oat (Almond) Milk
Four of the programs are for hot foods:
- Purée—like a gently-spiced pumpkin puree
- Soy Milk
- Rice Milk
The Ace also has a Pulse / Clean button that lets you to break up large chunks of food. Go ahead and toss in the extra-frozen pieces of strawberry or banana.
2. It can cook your soups
It seems “one-pitcher meals” are the new one-pot meals! Like some high-end blenders out there, the Ace can actually cook your soups in addition to blending them. You can make your soups start-to-finish in the blender, or roast vegetables and then purée in the blender to finish.
3. The price is right
Currently available only at Walmart, the Ace blender is $99. Compare that with Blendtec and Vitamix models with similar features, which can run you upwards of $299. Early reviews suggest you’d be better off going with the Ace and saving your extra cash for something else.
