Video: Is Vitamix Really The Best Blender?

Pin It

This video was fun to shoot because I honestly had no idea what the outcome would be. This is not anything we practiced beforehand! And I don’t come right out and say it – but I think it’s obvious which blender I like the best out of the Blendtec, Vitamix, Ninja line-up. Get ready to be surprised because I’m pretty sure it’s not the one you’d think would be the winner here. This video is a MUST watch if you’ve ever considered upgrading your blender!

Here’s a little summary of our observations after putting these three high powered blenders to the test!

    I got my KitchenAid Blender at Target for under $100 a few years ago after watching this comparison from Popular Mechanics. It is still going strong. I highly recommend it. :)

    I used to sell blendtec blenders and have owned a vitamix if you go cheap (relative term for less than $400) get a blendtec non designer series. Do not get a vitamix 5200 the blendtec Classic is far better for the price. I would however get one of the more expensive vitamix models they have automatic settings and is much quieter than a blendtec, and has a tamper which in some cases a blendtec could really use, but not really as ofyen as some vitamix folks suggest. The ninja is pure garbage and have had countless people have issues same with a nutri bullet so go american made it makes the difference.

    My vitamix doesn’t require disassembly. There were different instructions

    I have a Ninja Kitchen set and it works amazingly well. It includes a blender, food processor, and individual cup. My greens and frozen foods are blended without any chunks in seconds. Nut butters are made in the food processor. The base is easy to use and everything washes well. Blades are sharp, but they rinse clean easily. I paid $130 for the whole set at a wholesale club! It’s an amazing machine and I have had no issues with it. My friend owns a Vitamix and can’t believe my machine’s performance.

    why did you disassemble the Vitamix? Even the directions to mine tell you not to when cleaning it. It is one of my favorite things about it. Unfair comparison if you didn’t follow directions.

    When you did this comparison was there a taste difference between the models? I had read somewhere that the blendtec was much more “airy”. I did not see any of you tasting the others samples but I was wondering if you had.

    Our vitamix is nearly 10 years and I am worried it may be on it’s last legs. I love it. I am researching now so I know if I am willing to make the switch to blendtec or not…

    Thank you Candice

    You can’t really compare that brand Ninja to the Vitamix or Blendtec. Ninja makes a comparable blender called the Ninja Ultima that has 2500 horsepower. That is a comparable blender to the Vitamix and Blendtec. I received a Ninja Ultima for Christmas and have had great results making nut butters, smoothies with no bits of veggies and so forth. I just think it is unfair to rule out the Ninja, especially since you didn’t use one with equal horsepower to the others. My Ninja Ultima cost 139 dollars at Walmart.
