Blendtec or Vitamix?

#1 Postby emma1488 » Thu Sep 20, 2012 12:04 am

I'm wanting to buy a decent blender so that I can get into Green smoothies...But my dilemma is which one to get? I live in Australia, and I know the two main ones are Blendtec or Vitamix...so any experiences with either, or advice?

Vitamix has the tamper which is huge advantage for blending tougher things likes nuts and starchy vegetables. I have a Vitamix and use it all the time. I've used a Blendtec a few times and like my Vitamix a lot more (yes I'm biased).

I also like my Vitamix, but honestly I think both are excellent machines. I think it just comes down to if you prefer to 'tamp' or prefer to not tamp. Tamping allows thicker ingredients, but is more work.

I LOVE my Blendtec.

You will be happy with either machine.
