Deciding to make the jump up to one of the more commercial type blenders on the market is often a necessity if you plan on making daily smoothies as part of your healthy lifestyle.
The 2 most popular options I evaluated before making my decision was the Nutri bullet RX and Blendtec blenders.
They are both a bit more expensive than the average blender you find in most stores but make a world of difference in value and uses you can get out of the blender.
Seriously, once you start using one of these blenders you never want to go back to the old traditional blenders for many reasons.
Both blenders are optimally designed to help make blending more efficient and not jam up as much with ingredients. Both options are also much more powerful than the common blender which allows you to make smoothies in a fraction of the time of typical blenders without worrying about burning out the motor or getting it jammed.
One of the key selling points for me in my decision to purchase the Vitamix was the spill-proof vented lid with removable lid plug which makes is super easy to add additional ingredients while the blender is running. It also comes with a “tamper” which is like rod you can use to push down or stir to help the blending process along if any additional nudging is required.
The last selling point that put me over the edge with the Vitamix blender was how super easy it is to clean up. You just add some warm water and a few drops of dish soap, and run on high for 20-30 seconds or so. I do one more rinse with just plain warm water to make sure no material is left on the walls of the blender and blend for a few more second and done. No disassembling required to clean out various components.
The vitamix took away all the excuses I used to have that prevented me from making smoothies as often as I had liked.
Just because I chose the Vitamix over the Blendtec doesn’t mean there might be other advantages to the Blendtec you might prefer over the Vitamix. Ultimately it is up to what works best for you and your budget and either one you go with take you the next level in becoming
a smoothie master!
