The differences between Blendtec and Vitamix:
Debbie Buddle (Clinical Nutritionist, Raw foodie & Raw food cafe owner) has used many machines extensively over her 14+yr career, including the well reputed Vitamix. Heare are her comments on the differences:
Because of the wide square base of this blender, cleaning is abreeze. Add some dishwashing liquid and som water,pulse a few times, rinse, and it will be clean. Nothing goes to waste. With it's wide square shape, nothing gets stuck around the base, as in a typical blender. All food ingredients come out easily with a spatula. I found the Vitamix hard to get out the ingredients from around the blade.
Food processor functionality. Throw in some onions, carrots, etc. and pulse for a few moments and you have a nice chopped product. This makes soup making very simple.
This machine grinds grain. With the vitamix you need a seperate container to do this. It does an excellent job of turning wheat to flour. You are limit to about 2 cups of grain at a time, so not ideal for huge bread baking projects, but for every day flour needs, the Blendtec does a great job.
Makes amazing smoothies. Frozen fruit and greens come out so smooth, you cannot tell any texture difference. Throw in whole raw seeds (flax seeds, etc) and they are completely grinded without any problems. With the Vitamix you need to use the stick to make sure all the ingredients are blended.
Makes homemade raw sauces with ease. IThrowin a few apples, cinnamon, and water and in a few moments you have raw applesauce, plus you get the nutritional benefits of the peel in there too. You only have to quarter the apple, de-coring if desired. You can also makepasta sauce/tomato sauce from whole tomatoes, pear sauce from whole pears, fresh salsa, and other sauces in a matter of minutes.
Turns off by itself. Push your desired setting and let the machine go to work. You don't have to stand there and hold the lid down or wait to turn it off. The Blendtec has specific digital touchpad settings for every job and it will turn off automatically when the task is down. The ideal multi-task machine!
Is compact and yet EXTREMELY powerful. This machine has a 3 HP direct-drive motor and yet doesn't require any additional counterspace for its powerful engine. The Vitamix is 1200W and 2 HP.
Functionality with the press of a button. The digital touchpad makes it simple to use and perfectly arranged to meet every task. The Vitamix is manual.
Durable and professional. This machine is used in professional businesses, such as coffee shops, juice shops, etc. It is known for its quality and durability.
Simplicity in action. You can replace up to nine other kitchen appliances with this easy-to-use countertop blender-no need for a separate grain mill, juicer, bread machine, ice-cream maker, smoothie maker, blender, milkshake maker, coffee grinder, or ice crusher. The all-in-one appliance makes smoothies, fresh juice, ice cream, milkshakes, cappuccinos, margaritas, soups, sauces, breads, dressings, salsas, and more. It can even turn ice to snow and comes with an ice-crushing guarantee. So remove the clutter of your bench.
In addition to this list, the Blendtec can make ice cream, fondues, nutbutters, in addition to kneading bread dough and preparing and heating soups. It can knead one loaf of bread, a dozen muffins, or a loaf of sweet bread at a time. The machine also comes with a great cookbook with instructions andloads of recipes.
In conclusion, if you were to invest in one machine that would help you transition to a whole foods lifestyle, this would be the item I would recommend! If you cannot afford a separate grain mill, go with the simplicity of this blender.
Why I choose a Blendtec over a Vitamix?
Vitamix is a similar machine to Blendtec and more commonly known because it has been marketed to the consumer, but it seems thatBlendtec is the choice among professionals. First, the Blendtec fits under your countertop. The jar that comes with the Vitamix is too tall to store under the average countertop. You have to store it separately or purchase the additional smaller jar that Vitamix offers. One jar with the Blendtec does it all but you get two anyway. The Vitamix has two different jars to accomplish all these tasks (the second jar is an additional cost).The Vitamix does not turn off by itself and has two different switches that have to be adjusted carefully during the preparation process.
