I compared Blendtec to Vitamix, but even the shortest regular Vitamix would not fit under our kitchen cabinets, and the Blendtec appears to be a better, more elegant design. It has an 8 year warranty to both the base and jar, one more year than Vitamix. It is also more ergonomic: the control buttons face upward, and all the switchgear, save the on/off switch in the back, are sealed, thus protected from spills and easier to clean.
The 5 sided, "wildside" jar is high-quality polycarbonate, light, with clear English and Metic volume markings on the side. It works amazingly well. You never have to push anything down to the blades, the asymmetrical vortex created by the 5 sides and the blades turns and churns anything and everything you put in there. The vortex created is amazingly strong and violent, moving not just around in a horizontal circle, but up and down in a kind vertical plunging wave.
The blades are dull, which seems counter-intuitive, but again, they work amazingly well. They appear to be like airplane wings with winglets, and they suck whatever is in the jar with great force downward toward them. Thus whatever is in the jar is completely and utterly pulverized and blended within seconds. Even slick fruit skins, like cherry skins, are blended to the tiniest particles. The hardest, purest ice is blended completely fine, no crunchy particles at all. Smoothies are really, really smooth, as smooth or smoother than the ones blended professionally at smoothie shops.
The motor is very powerful. It feels important to press the top of the jar onto the base at the beginning of a cycle because the torque of the motor and the blades is so strong it feels like it could knock the jar off the base, although maybe not. I'm afraid to try. Once it does the initial mash of the big ingredients then it feels safe to take your hand off. The blender itself is not that noisy, but because of it's power, with big ingredients in the jar it does make a lot of noise. The blade assembly attaches to the base with a direct metal sprocket connection, very solid, no possibility of slippage. All the power gets to the blade assembly which does its work with startling alacrity.
An amazing, well-designed product which I hope will provide years of service.
and explained the problem. The next morning I had an email that a new jar was on the way. 2 days later I was back in business.
I love being able to just push the smoothie or soup button and it just works I don't have to monitor it and keep adjusting like I did with the vitamix that it replaced.
- The smoothie setting makes it easy, and is programmed with a speed variation profile designed to chop first, then puree to a finer consistency. Just load the jar, press the button, stand back and Boom! you have a great smoothie.
- The faster speed settings also start slowly for a half second, then accelerate to the programmed speed.
I can't wait to test it on multiple cooking tasks. This machine is a bona fide versatile kitchen tool.
