    Blendtec vs. Vitamix...

    Sat Feb 16, 2013 2:03 pm Groupie
    kusum874 asked a good question in the old Is a Vita-Mix worth the $$$? thread.

    Now that there is a Blendtec on the scene, I see it has solved the two biggest complaints I have about the VM; the weight and noise.
    I have an old Vitamix, and it still runs well, but when I'm in the market for a new machine, I'll be switching to the Blendtec.
    I'm also wanting to grind grains, and think that the best option for doing a lot of that is to buy the grain mill separately, instead of using the blender for it. It's a bigger expense, and another gadget to store, but I suspect the mill would do a better job of grinding, and it would extend the life of the blender by not putting that strain on it.

    Any opinions one way or the other?

    Cooks Illustrated just did a equipment test for blenders. Vitamix came up on top, but the Breville at less than half the price came up nearly as high and is highly recommended

    From CI: With a curved jar, six well-configured blades, and a relatively powerful (750-watt) motor, this blender excelled at almost every taskā€”and at less than half the cost of our co-winner. If it stands the test of time, we may eventually make it our sole winner.

    The Blendtec was not one of the ones tested.

    That looks almost exactly like mine, Katie.
    My friend that asked me about the two brands last week found the VitaMix on sale and snagged it. She loves it! The deciding factor was the fact that she likes having a tamper.
