wow amazing i always thought about getting a vitamix, i changed my mind now lol go Blendtec!

Natalie said...

Wow, thanks so much for this!

I'd just like to correct you on a few things though - the carafe with the 4" blade for the Blendtec is not BPA-free. I contacted the company regarding this and they said that only the carafe with the 3" blade is BPA-free.

Also, Vita-Mix DO have a 3hp blender, called Vita-Prep 3. It's a commercial blender but people do buy it for home use, too. It's a lot more expensive than the Blendtec Total Blender though; twice as much, in fact!

Vita-Mix also do BPA-free jugs, but you need to buy seperate ones for wet and dry food, which ends up costing you a lot of money. Blendtec blends both in one jug so it's worth every penny (or cent for you Americans ;)

I personally love the Blendtec Total Blender. It's really user-friendly, compact, and FAST! I think you get a lot more for your money with it than the Vita-Mix.

Blessings to you both.

I just purchased a Blentec and I love it! Now I can't wait until I can get the 4" blade carafe.

Hey guys.

LOVE your ahows..

Heads up on Baby's sensitive ears..
U could actually see the child was affected by the noise..
I think it would be soo cool to have a show related to Ear prection , since raw fooders do have and use high powered blenders, and I'm sure there are alot of raw mothers anf family that woulfd benefit..
And if your an animal lover think about your pets..I personally let my Dog outside first..
Keep up the Great work..!!!

Koa said...

Can't I just buy the Blendtec with the 4" blade in the first place? It sounds like I wouldn't even need the 3" so why should I have to pay more for a second carafe when I don't need the first one?

Nice comparison. Now I know what I'll get if my Vita-Mix ever bites the dust.

I am somewhat upset and disappointed by all this hype about the Blendtec over the Vitamix since I recently purchased the single most expensive small kitchen applicance I've ever owned from The Raw Food World only a few months ago -- a Vitamix blender! I would never have spent nearly $400 on something that is now considered "inferior" had you been touting this Blendtec then. When I purchased my Vitamix, it was hands down the best blender you could buy. And there's no way I can afford to purchase another blender. So, as great as the Blendtec may be, I'm stuck with my Vitamix. Too bad I can't return this one back to you and have you send me a Blendtec. :-(

BABY CARRIER - looks like a BECO. i had one and i LOVED it.

Vitamix DOES have automatic shut-off, and i bought a new one in March that did come w/ a BPA-free carafe.

Very Nice Review.

Here is another very good review to help you decide which one is better for you:

VitaMix versus Blendtec Review

Vita-mix doesn't really have an "automatic shut off" it just has an overheat protections shut off - very different than the Blendtec timed shut off.

Great video Matt!

It's nice to see a side by side comparison of all three models.

But I have to tell you Matt - there are a lot of people who have had problems with Blendtecs and K-Champs. I know SO many people who have had problems with Blendtec. Maybe this new 4" model has less problems than the other models!

That poor baby. If it isn't deaf already, it will be soon. One should wear hearing protection when using these blenders.

great site - althought the Blendtec is fast and powerful - the rubber in the bottom of the jar eventually wears out and gets into the food. The Vitamix has a 7 year warranty for everything - even the jar, and they will ship a new jar or fix the machine free of charge! The Blendtec jar is very expensive to replace - 60 dollars, not to mention adding it to a landfill.

The Vitamix may take alittle longer to mix, but the the pusher helps with nut butters and harder to mix things with alot more control.

Go with the Vitamix - the warranty and customer service are the best. The company stands behind its product.

I have had the vitamix since 1974, upgraded it in 1994 and had the motor fail 2 days ago. Vitamix is replacing the motor base and the container for $145 plus $20 shipping. 16 years of everyday use (I used the same container for wet and dry), replaced the blade once in 16 years, their customer service is great and they have been around for a very long time. The machine is durable, dependable and easy to use. Not many products can claim such a successful past and still maintain fantastic quality.

The lady using the Vita-mix isn't turning the dial all the way to high for the comparisons.

One commenter said the 4in Blendtec isn't BPA free, it is clearly labeled on the site as being so.

I've seen the same with my Blendtec, I purchased both the 3in and 4in, the bigger one does do better.

As for the comment about buying it with only the 4in, you can. I like the convenience of having two (I made soup & dessert for dinner)

i'm still having a difficult time deciding on which one to get.
i've been stuck on the Vita-Mix for a long time. It seems like the Blendtec is just faster. I do like that the Blendtec has more space in the carafe and that you don't need a different one for wet/dry foods.
Despite that, I think i'm still going to go with the Vita-Mix.

Eating just raw food is great. I try doing it most of the time and it makes me feel great. During the week I try to stick to raw food only. On the weekends I have here and there a hot meal. I have read Raw Spirit & Raw Success and was amazed.

There are even more blender jars from Blendtec that are not BPA free. The new Twistar jar they have should be added to that list.
