Good Blender

mabear55, Ebay
11 November 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this blender after seeing it at my daughters house. It does a good job blending but appears to not be able to handle a full jar of frozen fruit and liquid to make smoothies. I smoked it and it shut off one time when I was trying to do a whole blender full! It needs to be only 1/2 a blender at a time and even then it requires stirring to make sure everything is blended. This wasn't what I expected but then I'm not sure if that was a realistic expectation.

I think the 3 inch container might have been better

G. Farnsworth, Amazon
11 July 2012
  • Summary: This blender has an exceptional amount of power in the base. Sometimes it's a frightening amount. That's what we are paying for, though. Just be aware that sometimes there is enough torque (at least with this wildside blade) that the blender shakes a lot and even moves around. Mostly this happens if there's not much being blended and it starts cavitating. It's quite impressive to see, though. Overall it's a very fine blender.

My first "real" blender

M. Eastman, Amazon
10 July 2012
  • Summary: I previously owned a cheap 40 dollar blender for the sole purpose of green smoothies. As it turns out, I could barely do anything with it! It barely crushed ice! So after much thought and encouragement from green smoothie enthusiasts, I decided to buy a "real" blender. Deciding between the Blendtec and the Vitamix was incredibly difficult. I'm a 21 year old that is not exactly made of money. Each one seemed to have their pros and cons.

I Love My Blendtec

K. Carlington "Classic movie Lover", Amazon
29 June 2012
  • Summary: My Blendtec arrived and once I took it out the box, I used it. It is a real powerful blender and I love that it is a no-brainer when it comes to the cycles. I don't have to think about how long to let things mix, it does it all by itself. So, if I want to make a smoothie, I just press the button and off she goes. I will say one thing, if you are going to make a smoothie follow their reccommendations about how to load your ingredients.

seriously good blender, but for the $ it needs to be flawless

mr3, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm one of those people that usually has to learn something the hard way. Blenders were no different, apparently. I went through "a few of them", and luckily I was able to escape with my wallet relatively unscathed. I didn't realize it at the time, but I was going to need that wallet. Because what I needed out of a blender was apparently industrial strength.

Great Blender!!!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
18 January 2012
  • Summary: We use it regularly, to make soups and smoothies. It makes food edible for my wife (she couldn't eat vegetables or anything with high fiber content, as it caused her gastro-discomfort). We plan to obtain additional "blender bucket" options. I've been told it's better than the Vita Mix (that I've seen in bars), and is used by Starbucks. Great Blender!!!

Great Blender

Patrick Mckinnon, Amazon
30 December 2011
  • Summary: It may be expensive, but this blender is crazy! I considered buying a second so that I could make my own "Will it Blend?" video and see if the Blendtec blender could blend another Blendtec blender (say that five times fast); I don't doubt that it could. I had to ding it 1 star because Blendtec advertises this thing as a great food processor also, and I had hoped to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

I gave it a fair shake

lovemyicecream, Amazon
14 October 2011
  • Summary: We had been looking for a better quality blender and had seen the VitaMix demonstrated several times. We had decided we would likely buy one the next time we saw them demonstrating. In the meantime, we came across a BlendTec demo. We hadn't heard of this brand before, but were impressed by the demo and convinced that it was a similar quality machine that appeared to have a few advantages over the VitaMix.

Does it Blend?

Nick C in CT, Amazon
26 August 2011
  • Summary: Extremely reliable and powerful unit. Easy to use and clean. Is a bit loud when crushing ice and frozen fruit for smoothies. Much sturdier than cheaper models.
