VitaMix vs BlendTec
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.

I got the blendtec, I use it for a week now and loved it..
After searching so long for a reliable blender for my health problem I was glad i decided on getting the Blendtec as it is just the right size for my kitchen. Someone recommended this online retailer http://HealthyLifestyleSingapore.com Thank you for sharing.
Hell hath no fury like a Vitamix person scorned. Robyn’s experience with the two machines pretty much coincides with mine. Vitamix is good the Blendtec is simply better. I cannot in my wildest imagination think Blendtec will ever have to pay Vitamix a whopping settlement for stealing one of its designs.
