So I came in from running and started to make a blenderful of GS. Sometimes if my BlendTec is full of something else, or my kids put the container somewhere that I can’t find, I use the VitaMix instead of the BlendTec.
This photo shows another reason why I promote BlendTec over VitaMix. This is the third time this has happened to me in the past few years with my VitaMix: while blending, for no good reason, the entire base and blade assembly comes apart from the container. I had to pull the container off the base and quickly dump it into my other container (losing some all over the counter in the process). I had to stick my hand into the container of green goo and fish out the blade assembly.
So I told my son to grab the camera so you could at least be entertained by it. Don’t get me wrong–VM is a good machine, makes awesome smoothies, and they honor their warranty well (I’ve burned up a couple of their machines). But you can read my 6 reasons (besides this design flaw) why I choose to promote BlendTec, by clicking here.
