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.

    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.
