Blendtec vs Vitamix

Blendtec vs Vitamix Review: Which One is Better?

If you’re in the market for a high-end blender that is capable of making awesome smoothies, nut milks, nut butters, soups, salsas, and much more, then chances are you have heard of both the Vitamix and the Blendtec. While the Vitamix is definitely the more popular of the two, is it really the better one?

In this Blendtec vs Vitamix article, I wanted to do a comparison of both blenders and highlight the main features of each one. I’ve been a user of both of them for quite some time now, so I am writing this from a neutral standpoint.

Hopefully by the end, you will know which blender is better for you. Fair warning: this article is pretty long because I wanted to make it as comprehensive as possible. When you’re done reading it though, you should have a clear understanding of which blender to buy (if you don’t feel like reading it, spoiler alert: it’s the Blendtec hands down).

Blendtec is currently running a promo where their refurbished Total Blender Classic is only $279.95, which is a fantastic deal that you won’t find anywhere else.

Comparison Charts

First off let’s start with comparison charts for each blender so you can see a nice detailed breakdown of all their models. Then after the charts, I will touch on each key point individually.

Now that you’ve had a look at the chart breakdowns, let’s talk about the cost for these two blenders. For purposes of this comparison, I’m going to use the prices from the Blendtec and Vitamix official websites since that will be the most accurate.

Vitamix: The Vitamix models start out at $399 for the TurboBlend 2-speed model and go all the way up to $689 for the Professional Series 750. The most popular models are probably the Vitamix 5200 which starts at $449 and the Vitamix 7500 which starts at $529. There are several upgrades available for each package too for if you want to add separate containers or get more accessories.

Vitamix does offer refurbished machines which will usually save you $100-$150 off the price of a brand new machine. The refurbished ones are just as good as the brand new ones and you also get the same warranty. The only downfall is, they don’t always have refurbished machines available for every model, so you may end up having to buy the brand new one anyway.

Blendtec: The prices for the Blendtec blenders start at $454.95 for the Total Blender Classic and the Designer Series Wildside, and go all the way up to $649.95 for the Professional Series. Technically, you can buy the Tom Dickson Extreme Blender from Will It Blend for just over $1,000, but that’s more of a commodity piece than anything and is overkill for your average kitchen (unless you plan on blending cell phones, iPads, and video games).

Like Vitamix, Blendtec also offers a refurbished machine that will save you some money, but they only offer the Total Blender Classic in a refurbished model. All of the other models you need to buy brand new.

Also, both Vitamix and Blendtec now offer a 3-payment plan where you can pay off your machine in 3 smaller payments instead of one giant payment. This makes it easier for some people to afford one of these blenders.

Winner of the price category: It’s almost impossible to pick a winner here because the prices are almost identical. On one hand, you will spend less for the cheapest Vitamix model (the TurboBlend 2-speed at $399), but to be honest, the TurboBlend isn’t all that great of a blender for the price. It only has 2 speeds and not much control over your blending. On the other hand, the top end model of the Vitamix is more expensive than the top end model of the Blendtec.

I’m going to give this round to the Blendtec only because I feel like you get a lot more for your money with their blenders as opposed to the Vitamix. Spending $450 on a Blendtec gets you a lot more than spending $450 on a Vitamix even though the prices are the same.


Blendtec vs Vitamix review

In the picture above, you’re seeing the Blendtec next to the Vitamix 5200. As you can see, the Blendtec is noticeably shorter which makes it much easier to store. Vitamix did recently start offering their 64 oz. container (same volume as the one in the picture above) in a shorter version on certain models so it’s more comparable to the size of the Blendtec, but you will have to spend a lot more for this model ($529 or more).

Vitamix also offers a 32 oz. and a 48 oz. jar as well that are more compact in size.

The Blendtec WildSide on the other hand gives you about 90 oz. of capacity (compared to the 64 oz. in the biggest Vitamix container) and it still comes in short enough to fit under your kitchen cabinets or inside of the cabinets when you want to put it away.

The sizes below are for the most common of the Vitamix and Blendtec models. Blendtec is fairly consistent with their sizes from one blender to the next, whereas Vitamix varies a bit depending on the model you choose.

Vitamix 5200 standard and TurboBlend VS models:

  • 64 oz. container (tall)
  • 20.5″ tall
  • 8.75″ deep
  • 7.25″ wide
  • 10 pounds 9 oz.

Vitamix 5200 compact and most Creations models:

  • 48 oz. container (short)
  • 17.5″ tall
  • 8.75″ deep
  • 7.25″ wide
  • 10 pounds 9 oz.

Vitamix 7500 and Professional Series 750:

  • 64 oz. container (short)
  • 17.5″ tall
  • 9.4″ deep
  • 7.7″ wide
  • 12.5 pounds

Blendtec Designer Series Wildside, Total Blender, and Signature Series:

  • 15″ tall with 90 oz. Wildside container attached
  • 9.25″ deep
  • 7″ wide
  • 8 pounds

Blendtec Professional Series:

  • 17″ tall with 90 oz. Wildside container attached
  • 7.5″ deep
  • 5.75″ wide
  • 12 pounds

Winner of the size category: For this category, Blendtec wins hands down. With all of their blenders, even the entry level models, you get a 90 oz. WildSide container that is compact enough to store away when you don’t want it out. If you want to get a Vitamix that is comparable in height, you will spend $529 or more but still have a lot less capacity in the jar than the Blendtec.

Power and Speed

This is where it gets really interesting with Vitamix vs Blendtec is their speed and power. Both of them are exceptionally powerful machines and will be able to handle almost any food item you throw at them. However, one does appear to have a little more power than the other. Let’s break it down:


  • Ranges between 2-2.2 peak horsepower depending on the model.
  • 11.5 amps/1380 watts in all models.
  • RPM range between 500-37,000.


  • 3 peak horsepower in all models
  • 13 amps/1560 watts in all models
  • RPM range between 4,080-28,000

As you can see, the Vitamix is a bit less powerful with only 2-2.2 HP and 1380 watts compared to the Blendtec’s 3 HP and 1560 watts. While 1 HP might not make a difference in a car, on a kitchen appliance like a blender, it’s very noticeable.

The Vitamix does appear to have a greater RPM range, but to be honest, you will rarely ever need to go as low as 500 RPMs (which would be Speed 1 on the Vitamix). Almost all of your blending jobs will be done at medium to full speed. Also while the RPMs on the Vitamix go higher than the Blendtec, the sheer power of the Blendtec’s blades overshadow the higher speed of the Vitamix.

Vitamix put out this statement on motor horsepower a little while back trying to defend their lower HP blender, but to me that’s just a marketing ploy to try and convince you that power does not matter when in fact it does.

Winner of the speed and power category: The Blendtec wins again in this category. They clearly have more horsepower, amps, and watts in their blenders. As a user of both machines myself, I can vouch for the Blendtec being more powerful and delivering smoother results than the Vitamix.

Design and Controls

Alright now let’s take a look at the design and controls of both of these machines and see how they compare.

For the Blendtec, I’m only going to do the Designer, Signature, and Professional Series because the Total Blender Classic is a bit dated now and the Tom Dickson is over $1,000 so is probably way out of most people’s budgets anyway.

Blendtec Designer Series:Blendtec Designer Series

  • Whole interface is a touch-screen.
  • 6 pre-programmed buttons: Batters, Ice, Smoothies, Ice cream, Juice, Soups.
  • Touch-finger slider to manually control the speed.
  • Countdown telling you how long until the blending cycle is complete.
  • Pulse button.

Blendtec Signature Series:Blendtec Signature Series

  • 5 pre-programmed buttons.
  • 5 individual speed buttons.
  • Pulse button.
  • Not a touch-screen interface.
  • Digital display on the front for speed and timer.

Blendtec Professional Series:Blendtec Professional Series

  • 6 pre-programmed buttons.
  • Plus (+) and Minus (-) buttons to control speed.
  • Pulse button.
  • Digital display on the front.
  • Not a touch-screen.





Now for the Vitamix, I will be doing their Standard models and their Next-Generation models.

Vitamix Standard Models (5200, TurboBlend VS, and most of the Creations and Professionals):

Vitamix 5200

  • Variable 10-speed dial.
  • High/Variable switch.
  • On/Off switch.
  • No pre-programmed buttons.





Vitamix Next Generation Models (Professional Series 500, Professional 750, and the 6300):

Vitamix 6300Vita-Mix 750

  • 5 pre-programmed settings in the Professional 750: Smoothies, Frozen Dessert, Hot soup, Puree, Self-cleaning.
  • 3 pre-programmed settings in the Professional 500 and the 6300: Smoothies, Frozen Dessert, Hot soup.
  • Variable 10-speed dial on both.
  • Pulse switch on both.
  • Start/Stop switch on both.
  • Power button on both.

My final verdict on the design and controls category: After getting my hands on the new Designer Series by Blendtec, there’s no way I can not give this category to Blendtec. It’s honestly the coolest thing I have seen in a blender or any kitchen appliance for that matter. Even all of their other models are much more futuristic than the Vitamix.

You get a touch screen, the ability to adjust the speed by sliding your finger, the Smart Touch technology with pre-programmed buttons that allows you to pick a setting and walk away while the blender does all the work, and a very sleek overall design.

While Vitamix has stepped it up a little by now offering pre-programmed buttons as well, not only will you pay a lot more for those models, they still aren’t as cool looking as the Blendtec Designer Series in my opinion.


In the warranty category, both the Blendtec and Vitamix are even. They both offer a full 7-year warranty on the entire machine including the blades, motor, jar, and parts. Vitamix offers an optional upgrade to a 10-year warranty (currently for $75), but I’m not sure if Blendtec offers an upgraded warranty or not. Either way, 7 years is a very long time and shows how much these companies stand behind their products.


Both blenders are extremely powerful, and therefore a bit louder than your standard store-bought blender. The good thing is, you normally aren’t using the blenders for more than 1-2 minutes at a time (unless you’re making hot soup) so you won’t have to worry about the noise for long.

The Blendtec is quieter by a small margin when comparing it to most of the standard Vitamix models. Vitamix’s next-gen models are reportedly quieter than their old ones, but not any quieter than the Blendtec.

Either way, you’re going to have a loud machine so there’s no real “winner” in this category either.

Blending Containers/Jars

There are some pretty big differences in the jars that both blenders use. Let’s take a look.


Vitamix currently has 5 different jars depending on which model you buy:

  • 32 oz.
  • 48 oz.
  • 64 oz. (tall)
  • 64 oz. (short)
  • 32 oz. dry grains container for making flours, bread dough, etc.

Vitamix vs Blendtec reviews

(The shorter 64 oz. isn’t pictured here because I couldn’t find an image with all 4 jars in it, but it’s about the same height as the 48 oz. container, just a little wider so it can hold more.)

All of the Vitamix containers are BPA-free and are made out of Eastman-Tritan copolyester which is a very durable material. They are more square towards the bottom and are circular at the top. All of the jars have measurement markings up the sides so you can measure your ingredients right in the jar.

The tall 64 oz. jar is the one you will have a problem with when trying to fit the machine under a cabinet or inside of a cabinet with the jar attached and unfortunately, that is still the standard size on most of their models. That is why they came out with the more compact containers, to help you save some counter space and store your blender away when you’re not using it.

As you can also see, Vitamix offers a dry grains container that is useful when making flours or bread dough. It’s the same thing as their standard 32 oz. container, except the blade is different. This is an extra expense you will have to pay if you want it.

The lids on all of the Vitamix jars have a removable plug in the center so you can add ingredients while you’re blending. The plug also doubles as a mini measuring cup since it has markings on the side of it as well. These markings fade pretty quickly and aren’t that easy to see in the first place, so I wouldn’t even bother using the plug as a measuring cup.

Here’s what I don’t like about the Vitamix jars:

I’ve found that the taller jars are very easy to knock off the base because they don’t securely stay on. You basically just set the jar on top of the base and start blending; there’s no locking mechanism or anything. Several times, I have come very close to completely knocking it over with all my ingredients in it just by accidentally bumping it lightly with my arm.

The lid also isn’t very secure on the jar when blending at high speeds. It seems very flimsy and doesn’t have a secure fit either. Mine has came loose on me many times while using the blender. I believe for the money we’re spending, we should have a jar that fits securely on the base and a lid that stays on while you’re using the machine.

Another thing is there are many reports of the jars starting to leak from the bottom after an extended period of time. I’ve had several friends who this happened to and I’ve seen it mentioned in other reviews online as well.

Lastly, there is an included tamper with every purchase (see below) which you need for pushing the ingredients down into the blades while blending. The reason you need the tamper is because the vortex on the Vitamix jars isn’t very good at times, and often an air bubble will form near the blades when you turn it on high speed. That’s when you have to go in with the tamper to pop the air bubble and get the ingredients back in contact with the blades again. This is annoying to keep doing over and over again.

Vitamix Tamper


Blendtec uses 3 different jars:

  • FourSide – 2 quarts or about 64 oz. (this one is dated and I don’t even think they really use it anymore)
  • WildSide – 3 quarts or about 90 oz. (comes standard on all of their models now)
  • Twister Jar – 32 oz.

Fourside vs Wildside jarBlendtec Twister Jar

All of Blendtec’s jars are also BPA-free and are made out of Triton copolyester, which again is a very durable material. The FourSide jar is used on most of their older models, but the WildSide has pretty much replaced it now. The difference is the WildSide adds a fifth side to the container to help create a better blending vortex and push the ingredients down into the blades better.

The Twister Jar is a really cool idea in my opinion. It’s basically the alternative to using a tamper like the Vitamix has. This jar is meant for when you’re blending thicker, non-liquid ingredients like nut butters or flour or something of that nature.

Generally what happens in the Vitamix when you’re blending thicker ingredients is the blades will keep whipping the ingredients away from them and they will start to accumulate on the sides of the jar instead of coming back down into the blades like they need to be in order to get fully blended. With the Twister jar though, you can just keep rotating the handle at the top whenever the ingredients start to get stuck to the sides, and it will automatically scrape them off and knock them right back into the blades.

This saves you a ton of time and hassle so you don’t have to keep stopping the blending cycle, scraping the sides, and starting over again like you have to do with the Vitamix. There is also an included spatula so that you can easily get everything out of the jar when you’re done blending.

Winner of the jar/container category: I’m gonna give this one to the Blendtec. I really like their WildSide jar with the fifth side added to it. It really creates a strong blending vortex so that your ingredients come into contact with the blades more easily. Due to this, you never have to use a tamper like you do with the Vitamix (I found myself using the tamper a LOT when I used my Vitamix because the vortex isn’t very good and it creates an air bubble down by the blades almost every time I turned it on the highest speed. This became a pain after a while.)

Plus, I like how the WildSide jar holds up to 90 oz. yet is still small enough to fit under your cabinets and not take up too much counter space. Best of all, the WildSide Jar comes standard now on most of their models, so it’s not an upgrade that you have to pay more for.

I also really like their Twister Jar and think it’s a great idea as well. It’s perfect for blending thicker ingredients like nut butters and dough. You never have to stop blending to scrape the sides like you do with the Vitamix, so you’re able to get done with your blending tasks way faster and with less headaches.

With the Vitamix, only a handful of their models come with the shorter 64 oz. container and as I mentioned earlier, these are $529 and up. So if you don’t want to pay for that specific model, you’re stuck with either a jar that is way too tall, or you have to go with a smaller capacity jar like the 32 or 48 oz.

The Blades

Blendtec vs Vitamix reviews

Next up in our Blendtec vs Vitamix debate we have the blades. Each of them have very different designs for their blades as you can see in the image above.


Blendtec’s blades are made out of cold-forged stainless steel and are only 2 prongs. They also feature a “wingtip” design where the edges flare up which is much different from what you see on most blenders. In the new WildSide Jar, the blades are 4″ across, whereas they were only 3″ in the older FourSide Jar. This was a nice upgrade in my opinion as it gives them a bit more blending power.


The Vitamix blades are made out of a laser-cut stainless steel so they too are very durable. They are about 3″ in diameter with each blade measuring approximately 1-1/4″.

The problem with the Vitamix is there are actually 2 different blade options which means you may have to spend more money on an extra jar because you can’t just switch the blades between the same jar: you have a “wet blade” which is the one you will be using for liquid or wet ingredients like smoothies, soups, sauces, ice creams, and so on.

Then there’s also a “dry blade” which is the one you need to use for things like nut butters and flour. The dry blade has it’s own 32 oz. container as I mentioned above in the jar section. If you think you will be making a lot of nut butters or grinding a lot of grains into flour, then you will probably want to consider going with any of the Vitamix packages that come with the dry blade/container too.

You can use the wet blade for making flour and nut butters, but it doesn’t do a very good job from my experience. So again, if you think you will be blending a lot of dry ingredients, you will have to shell out the cash for the other container.

In the picture below you can see the difference in the blades:

vitamix wet blade vs dry blade

Winner of the blades category: Due to the fact that you’re able to blend both wet and dry ingredients in the Blendtec, and their wingtip blades do a better job at blending the ingredients, this category also goes to the Blendtec.

I don’t like how with the Vitamix you’re expected to spend additional money on an entirely different jar just to use for dry ingredients. Seems like an unnecessary expense to me.

Clean Up

Both blenders are very simple to clean up when you’re done. Just throw some hot water and a few drops of dish soap in the jar, and run them on high for about 30 seconds. Rinse all the soap out and you’re good to go. It’s not recommended to put either one in the dishwasher as the heat can actually warp some of the parts and cause them not to have as good of a seal.

For tougher ingredients, you will have to hand-wash the jars after doing the auto-cleaning to get the rest of the residue out. In these situations, the Blendtec is much easier to clean due to the wider square jar.

I found the standard Vitamix jars to be a huge pain to clean because they are taller and more narrow, so it’s almost impossible to get your hands all the way down to the bottom to scrub.

I wouldn’t necessarily go with one or the other just based on their ease of cleanup, but if I had to pick a winner here, it’s the Blendtec because it’s easier to hand-wash.

Overall Review

As I hope you can now see, the Blendtec wins in just about every major category. I’m honestly not sure why the Vitamix is the more popular one, but from someone who has used and tested out both, the Blendtec is the clear winner for me and what you just read proves that.

Let’s recap:

  1. The Blendtec has more power than the Vitamix: 3 HP compared to the 2-2.2 in the Vitamix.
  2. The designs and controls on the Blendtec models are way nicer than the Vitamix (A touch screen blender? How cool is that?!).
  3. Blendtec’s WildSide jar is a much better design than any of the Vitamix models. Not only is it 90 oz. compared to 64 oz. in the Vitamix, but it’s more compact making for easier storage and it also creates a way stronger blending vortex so you never need to use that stupid tamper with it like you do the Vitamix. They also offer the Twister Jar which is another really cool design.
  4. You don’t have to buy a separate jar with Blendtec in order to blend both wet and dry ingredients – you can do both in the same jar.
  5. For the money, you get way more out of the Blendtec.

I really hope this article was helpful and gave you a lot of information on both blenders. Hopefully by now you have a much better understanding of them and you can see why I would choose the Blendtec over the Vitamix any day.

We’d love to hear from you! Was this review helpful? Do you prefer the Vitamix or the Blendtec? Drop us a comment in the box below and let us know your thoughts! Also, if this review was in fact helpful, would you mind sharing it as a way of saying Thanks?


  1. Wow what a monster sized review. Very thorough indeed. This is much better than trying to deal with a clueless store assistant.

  2. I have been through a lot of blenders over the years and currently have the Blendtec Designer Series. I can’t fault it at all, great blender.

  3. Wow Charlotte! That is a seriously in-depth review!
    I like to do nut butters and other very thick blending, and have broken more than a few blenders in my day. It’s neat to see that the twister jar would be a good fit for that. Have you tested the Blendtec for nut butters yourself? I’m curious to know how well it holds up under that kind of very high workload condition.

    • Yeah I’ve seen a lot of other Blendtec vs Vitamix reviews and the majority of them leave out many of the critical parts when comparing the two blenders, so I figured I would write one that was very in-depth and would answer all questions about both machines.

      Yes I’ve made nut butters in my Blendtec and it does a great job with them especially using the Twister Jar.

      • Sounds like the Blendtec is the better one here! So if I primarily (actually almost exclusively) use my blender for nut butters, which would you suggest? Blendtec I’m assuming?

        • If you plan on only really using it for nut butters, I would probably lean towards the Blendtec with the Twister Jar because it’s perfect for scraping the sides of the jar as you’re blending. Otherwise you will find yourself stopping the blending cycle, scraping the nuts off the sides, restarting it, and so on. The Vitamix does have the tamper which helps with this, but I still think the Twister Jar is more user-friendly in this scenario.

          Once you buy one though, I’m confident you will be using it for much more than nut butters. I make some awesome superfood smoothies in mine every day. Actually gonna post a few smoothie recipes in the next few days.

          If you do end up purchasing either one, you can get free shipping by buying through any of the links on my site. It’ll save you about $25 or so.

  4. I have the classic blender and I use it for everything. It works just great!

  5. Thanks for the indepth info on the differences with the blenders. I was looking for info like that to see which one is the best one for me to purchase. Keep up the good work. You make buying appliances so much easier because you have all the info that I need.

  6. Very well done and comprehensive article with a great deal of information. Helped me make my decision! Thanks!

  7. Thanks for this great comparison of these two blenders. I am seriously looking into both of them, so your article has been very useful to me. I love how you clearly lay out the features of each machine and give detailed information on both.

  8. Some really useful information here. I have been looking for a good comparison review as I need to buy a new blender and I’ve been considering either the Blendtec or the Vitamix. Looks like the Blendtec is the winner here so I’ll go with one of those.

  9. Great comparison, a really wonderful way to decide which blender to buy.

  10. This review was very helpful and I will be buying one of the products because of it. I cannot wait to make my soy fruit protein drinks in the morning and after the gym. Thank you

  11. so much more to blenders then I thought there were! definitely worth investing into a product that will do everything you want and last for a very long time, then continuously purchasing a cheap one that hardly works!

  12. I would definitely have to say Blendtec as well. It’s more upgraded and has a lot of cool features.

  13. James Hansborough

    good review, a little spendy but great blender

  14. I think Blendtec is the winner here. I am little lazy, so I would like to let the blender do the work for me.

  15. Charlotte, great article.

    Extremely thorough from cost to efficiency to even noise…

    Breaking them down side by side is so helpful for people because it is quite an investment with these high quality blenders. No one wants to make a $500+ mistake, do they?

    Thanks so much. Knowledge is power!

    Kimberly :)

    • I totally agree. I know I wouldn’t want to make a $400-$500 mistake. That’s why I wanted to write such a detailed review on these so people can make an informed decision. Glad you liked it :)

  16. This is great information. I have been looking into upgrading and purchasing a better quality blender. I am a new mom and want to make my sons food. After reading this I definitely know my next purchase. Thanks :)

  17. Fantastic review! Lots of really useful information in it, Thanks so much for this.

  18. I was recently thinking about purchasing a juicer (those infomercials are finally starting to get to me!). After reading this though – I think I might go the Blendtec route. Very thorough article, thanks!

    • Yeah if I had to pick between one or the other, I would pick the Blendtec over a juicer. However, I own both and I get great use out of the both of them. I would say get the Blendtec first, then save up and buy a juicer like the Omega. You will really enjoy it.

      • Yep! With the Blendtec (probably Vitamix as well) you can throw in the whole fruit and it pulverizes everything including the fiber. Much healthier. The juicer takes out all the natural fiber leaving you to digest only the water and sugar.

  19. I love the Blendtec’s futuristic design but I also love the range of the Vitamix. It is hard to decide between aesthetics and functionality.

  20. I actually need a new blender and was debating between the Blendtec and the Vitamix. Great review, thank you for all the relevant information.

  21. I have been looking at getting a Blendtec Blender for quite some time. This article was very thorough and I have learned a lot from it. Thanks for writing this.

  22. Great review of these two blenders. I was torn between them both at first but now I see who the winner is. Will definitely be going with a Blendtec!

  23. I love the newer features on the Blendtec. They are really cool. I think I’ll be grabbing one of these after reading your review!

  24. I’ve been through a lot of blenders!! And never have read up on them until this one. Looks like I’ll be trying this one out. Thanks for the article!!

  25. When Costco has sales or coupons available, the Blendtec is usually 329$ plus tax. Great deal! if you’re a Costco member. It’s the original Blendtec series btw.

  26. Thanks so much for the review have been pondering for days on which one to buy after my ninja( piece of junk) died so it looks lkke blendtec it is!

  27. Oops I forgot to ask which blendtec would you suggest? Will be using alot of frozen fruit for smoothies, some nut butters and would like to be able to make my own gluten free flours if possible. Any suggestions on which model would do the trick without spending a small fortune. Thanks so much

    • I really like the Designer Series so I’d recommend that one. It’s actually their cheapest model (unless you buy a refurbished Total Blender Classic), but it’s still my favorite one. Very futuristic and I love the touch-screen interface.

      On another note, my apologies for the late response. I didn’t even see your comment until now.

      Hope that helps!

  28. Thanks for this Charlotte… I’ve owned the Blendtec Classic from Costco for a year & a half and love it. Was always curious how it stacked up next to the Vitamix. I’ve made everything in my Blendtec….smoothies & smoothie pops, hummus & tahini, dog treats, bread crumbs, powdered sugar, bread, salsa, sauerkraut, and carrot-ginger soup! It’s important that you follow direction and pile ingredients in the right order… I’ve blown through two jars already. Blendtec customer service is fantastic… they just send out a new one… no questions asked. They don’t even wait for me to return the bad one.
