Blendtec vs Vitamix

Blendtec vs vitamix

You have heard Jadah and I say many times that you don’t need a fancy-pants blender to make green smoothies.

And it’s true!

The difference is this: the better the blender, the less work you have to do. And that means less prep, less time blending and better results. This is what swayed me into getting a Vitamix and Jadah into getting a Blendtec once our wedding gift blenders finally kicked the curb.

Vitamix and Blendtec are both amazing blending machines and neither of us could lose. They both have insanely powerful motors that will liquify your apples whole, turn your spinach into liquid greens in a matter of seconds and cut your smoothie making time in half. So what’s the difference? Why is one better than the other? Well, that totally depends on your personal preference. You can watch our video below to see both blenders in action. Both are pretty awesome! I also broke down some pros and cons of each for you too.

 

Battle of the Blenders: Blendtec vs Vitamix

A few weeks ago, I invited some green smoothie lovin’ friends over and held a battle of the blenders to test these two blending beasts side by side. I’ve read reviews for both— lots of reviews, but I wanted to compare them myself— and in action. Well, I can tell you personally both these blenders make green smoothies like champs! They turned my spinach, berries, banana and water into fabulous green smoothies in a matter of seconds (for realzzz). Yet not everything was peachy keen— there were a few moments of shock. Read on for my personal review:

Blendtec

  • 15.5″ tall
  • Pre-programmed cycles
  • One touch buttons
  • 1580 watts
  • 2 prong blade

Vitamix

  • 20.5″ tall (with default container)
  • 2-speed switch + variable dial
  • Variable speed dial
  • 1380 watts
  • 4 prong blade

Blendtec

The Blendtec WildSide was a lot of fun for me to use since I am a Vitamix gal. I will admit, I was a little overwhelmed by all the buttons (It has 10 buttons, a pulse button, and a pre-programmed control so you can push a button and walk away). This was a lot for me to comprehend and decide what to do— and made me question if they were all really necessary for a green smoothie gal.

The Blendtec has some great perks: it’s also dramatically shorter than the Vitamix which makes it an easy winner for space savers. You can also push a button and walk away while your spinach and blended into incredible green pulp. It’s kinda got a mind of it’s own— which is convenient for the multitaskers out there.

Blendtec has some great perks, but one is definitely not a stable base. We were a little shocked at how much it rocked while blending. The motor is so powerful that it made the entire blender rock back and forth. The base of the Blendtec is much lighter than the Vitamix and we could definitely see the results of that when we had them both cranked at full power.

After we blended the smoothie, we tasted it and were impressed with how frothy it was — it was so light and airy. I have to emphasize this because I have never tasted anything like it with my Vitamix. There is definitely more air getting into the smoothie, which makes it frothy. And just like the Blendtec roadshows demonstrate, clean up was very easy thanks to the slick square-shaped plastic container. Click on any of our Blendtec links, and when you purchase, you’ll receive free shipping (it will be applied at check out once you enter your zip code).

 

Vitamix

The Vitamix 5200 is a simple and stable beast of a blender. I will admit— it’s height makes it a little awkward to store on the counter. I have to take the container off and set it to the side so it fits on my counter, which is annoying. Yet I did see online they make a shorter container now—so get that one and you will be very happy!

Yet that is the only downside I personally see to the Vitamix. My favorite thing about it is how easy it is to use— it’s a two-switch, one dial machine. Simple. This dial feature gives me total control over the speed variations and length of time I want to blend my smoothies for. The actual smoothie was creamy (not frothy like the Blendtec), which is totally a personal preference kinda thing.

When we turned the Vitamix on full speed, the base didn’t budge. It practically has a cinder block attached to its base. I couldn’t walk away and let it blend and automatically shut off— with Vitamix you are in control and have to shut it off yourself. So control freaks— this might be the one calling your name!

When it came to cleanup, the Vitamix container didn’t clean as easily as the Blendtec— it had a little leafy fiber residue after I “blended it clean”. We compared the containers to see why this was and the Blendtec has a slick film on the container to make it super slippery. The Vitamix container has a matte finish so it’s not as slick and leafy fibers like to stick to it.

Blendtec-vs-vitamix2

The bottom line: 

Both blenders are great choices if you want to become a hard core, green smoothie drinking machine like Jadah and I. No leafy chunks with either blender and the smoothies were made in easily under 2 minutes.

If you like more features, care how it looks/fits on your counter and like frothier smoothies— I say go with the Blendtec.

If you prefer creamy smoothies, a simple look, and a super solid blender— go with the Vitamix.

Both have 7 year warranties, blend like kings and will make your green smoothie days even more exciting.

Save some money and help the environment!

If you need to save some money, you can buy the refurbished version right through Blendtec and Vitamix. They still come with the rockin’ warranty and look brand new— it’s really a great way to save some money!

I love throwing a whole apple in and watching it disappear into the green abyss.

    I use a nutribullet and have for 2 or 3 years. In my opinion they are the best and only $90.00

    • SGS Rawkstar 3.28.2015 at 8:01 am #

      Hi Robyn,

      I love the Nutribullet! Especially how easy clean-up is!

  2. Ryan 3.24.2015 at 9:25 am #

    Appreciate the review you both did.
    I have a question about the amount of oxidation both blenders introduce into the shake/smoothie.

    I was told that the Vita Mix has sharper blades (than the Blend Tech) which cut. This allows them to spin faster than the Blend Tech does initially and drag more oxygen into the mix, which is bad.

    The oxidation darkens the smoothie and causes the smoothie to be more rancid.
    Whereas the Blend Tech’s blades don’t cut, they pulverize, which slows the blades down initially and not as much oxygen is pulled into the smoothie.

    You can supposedly test this by leaving both out for an hour, and at the end of that time, the Vita Mix smoothie would be rancid from the oxidation and taste bad.

    I was just about to buy a Vita Mix, because I think I like it better… But now I’m wondering if this is true, as I’ve never seen or compared the blades of each blender.
    Though I believe the Blend Tech has a more powerful base.

    • Melanie 3.24.2015 at 2:17 pm #

      I have a Vita-Mix and eat smoothies every morning for breakfast. Because this is a grab and go thing for me, I’m often taking all day to drink my smoothies. I haven’t found that they taste rancid after a few hours. They are warm from sitting on my desk, but not rancid. Hope this helps!

    • SGS Rawkstar 3.24.2015 at 6:29 pm #

      Hi Ryan,

      Thank you so much for your comment! Unfortunately we don’t know. While I’ve never had an issue with my smoothie’s going rancid due to oxidation, I would suggest contacting both Vitamix and Blendtec’s customer relations department to find out more information regarding their blades. Sorry we can’t be of more help!

    • Nancy 3.26.2015 at 9:38 am #

      Ryan,

      When comparing the two devices, the oxidation rate is going to be similar with both machines. The cell walls are destroyed in both devices at approximately the same rate. It’s more a matter of how you store your smoothie, soup etc than which device you use.

      • SGS Rawkstar 3.26.2015 at 11:11 am #

        Thanks Nancy!

  3. Tessa 3.20.2015 at 1:50 pm #

    I have a Blendtec and I love it. I really like the preset buttons, the easy cleaning, and love the digital control panel of the Designer series. But you are right about the frothy texture. I have to admit that sometimes that texture bothers me a little. Have you found anyway to help prevent it or at least make it less frothy?

    • SGS Rawkstar 3.23.2015 at 8:56 am #

      Hi Tessa,

      We love blendin’ with our Blendtec too! :) To help reduce the amount of froth produced while blending, try blending on low for 10-20 seconds after you’ve finished blending your smoothie (Speed 4 on the Blendtec). You can also try adding a little bit of healthy fat, like coconut or flax oil, to your smoothies to cut down on the froth. I hope this helps with your blendin’!!

      • Tessa 3.27.2015 at 11:40 am #

        Thank you. I will try that out this week and see if it helps. Loving my green smoothies and how much better I feel since I started drinking them. The few times that I have skipped having one I can tell the difference in how I feel that day. Thanks again for your response and for your website, it’s really easy to use and you have lots of great recipes. Can’t wait to try more! :-)

    • SGS Rawkstar 3.27.2015 at 1:43 pm #

      Tessa, please let us know how those few changes help your smoothie! We’re so happy to have you blendin’ with us, and love hearing that you’re feeling great! Cheers :)

  4. Breanna 3.16.2015 at 1:10 pm #

    After reading this website I’m fairly confident I want a vitamix blender for my green smoothies. I’m from Canada, and on the vitamix website there are so many different styles and types to choose from. Do you have any recommendations into which features and styles you would like best?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 3.17.2015 at 5:03 am #

      Hey Brenna,

      Thanks for reaching out. You truly can’t go wrong with any Vitamix. The basic 2 speed is great. :)

    • Nancy 3.26.2015 at 9:44 am #

      I bought a Vita Mix certified reconditioned with presets and I love it! There are 3 pre-set programs and full manual controls as well. I can start the smoothie cycle, walk away and it will shut off on its own. I’m sure all of their devices are great, but I am really happy that I chose one with pre-sets.

      • SGS Rawkstar 3.26.2015 at 11:12 am #

        Nancy,

        Thank you so much for sharing your experience with the Vitamix! :)

  5. nathalie 3.15.2015 at 7:07 am #

    Hi
    im debating also between the 2 blenders. In my case I want to use it more for juices instead of buying a juice extractor. Can both blenders give me a healthy juice ?. Smoothies are thicker than juices. Thats why im concern about the texture.
    Thanks for your advise
    nathalie

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 3.15.2015 at 5:36 pm #

      Hey Nathalie.

      Thanks for the question. Yes, they both can make smoothie juices with whole fruits.

  6. Ty 3.14.2015 at 12:18 pm #

    I’m wondering about the “soup” functions. Does B have this like V does? How do they compare?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 3.15.2015 at 5:34 pm #

      Hey Ty,

      Thanks for the comment. I haven’t use the soup function on a B, only on a V. Maybe someone from our community can help answer…

  7. Lorraine 3.11.2015 at 5:32 pm #

    In addition to green smoothies, I want to make almond milk. In your opinion, is one blender (Vitamix or Blendtec) a better workhorse for grinding nuts/seeds? Thanks!

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 3.12.2015 at 10:17 am #

      Hey Lorraine.

      Thanks for the comment. I think both are great machines and companies. :) I prefer my Vitamix, but others might think Blendtec does better. It’s a personal preference. :)

  8. Ruthie 3.11.2015 at 7:43 am #

    I have had a Vitamix for apprx 25 years. grinding chicken pieces w/bones for dog food (which I no longer do) along with smoothies etc. It still works great. 3 yrs. ago decided to get a Blendtec. I liked the smoothie and frozen dessert settings. I did not like that there was no LOW setting for slow stirring which I use for some recipes like cheesecake. After having it for 3 yrs. it began to lightly leak on the bottom. I tried to call Bendtec for what to do. Waiting for hours… finally leaving my number, I gave up and called Costco where I purchased it. They told me to “bring it back”!!! Well I did and received my entire cost, inc the sales tax, back in cash. I decided to purchase another Blendtec. I was told they only had Vitamix now. I was planning on purchasing another Blendtec on line. They happened to have a Vitamix demonstration going on. The new Vitamix also had the automatic soup, smoothie, frozen settings. So I decided to get another Vitamix. I am soooo happy I did!!!! I have so much more control of everything I do with this machine, with the top off you can use it like a mixer, unlike the Bendtec which is all automatic. BTW, Blendtec returned my call the following day, after I purchased my new Vitamix. I would give ***** to Vitamix and **** to Blendtec. My rating is not just for smoothies but for everything you can make in these machines.Both are awesome machines! Vitamix is taller than Blendtec, so I just place my machine and the container side by side on my counter, it looks great.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 3.11.2015 at 8:27 am #

      Hey Ruthie!

      Great reviews on both machines + Costco customer service. Thanks so much for sharing + blending with us! Cheers!

    • Susan 3.20.2015 at 5:07 am #

      Hi Ruthie, which model did you get? (It sounds great & I’m about ready to purchase!)

  9. Lisa 3.7.2015 at 7:16 pm #

    i have a nutribullet that works fantastic. Make my green smoothie daily. No chunks blends everything perfectly. This was less expensive than the other two. I highly recommend this.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 3.9.2015 at 3:31 pm #

      Awesome, thanks for the insight. :)

  10. Darlene 3.5.2015 at 4:17 pm #

    I was pretty sure I was going to get a Vitamix, did not know about the blendtec. After this I am off to do more research…
    If we are going to spend this much on either of these, then I want
    to make sure it is the right one.
    I have went through 2 Kitchen Aids…love my smoothies.

    Hi.
    I just found out about simple green on Instagram … I will like to know which of the blender’ s you would recommend for me to buy…. I saw the Blendtec and Vitamin… The review is cool but I simply can’t decide which one to use and I do not leave in the US but in Nigeria Pls recommend a good one for me the amount how to pay and when it will be shipped to Nigeria…

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 2.26.2015 at 8:12 am #

  13. Linda 2.25.2015 at 3:07 pm #

    Hi, I am thinking of buying the Vitamix but after watching the video and reading the reviews on Blendtec I am undecided. I am currently using the Nutrininja which I am not really loving because the consistency of smoothies is too thick and the main reason why I don’t love is that it is super loud. I do my smoothies in the morning before I go to gym and it literally wakes up everybody in my house. Which one of the two is less louder and anybody knows if its the same level of noise with the Ninja? Any feedback is appreciated!

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 2.25.2015 at 6:58 pm #

      Hey Linda.

      If you are worried about the noise, go for a Vitamix or a Professional Vitamix for even more quietness. :)

  14. Annett 2.23.2015 at 12:37 pm #

    I love my Magic Bullet! Because it is soo convenient. It’s the right portion size. I don’t need to rinse anything. I just put the lid on and have a smoothie to go.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 2.23.2015 at 2:09 pm #

      Awesome, great to hear that you found a blender that works best for you!

  15. Karen 2.23.2015 at 8:19 am #

    After 20 years of lusting after a Vitamix, I *finally* took the plunge and got one yesterday. All I can say is…WHY did I wait so long??? I tried Simple Green Smoothies in the past, but my blender wasn’t strong enough to grind everything up completely, so I always had chunks and pieces, and it kind of turned me off to green smoothies. It was the texture I didn’t care for. I have to say, your description of Vitamix is spot-on. I used it for the first time this morning and can’t believe how awesome it is! Now I am STOKED to start drinking green smoothies every day on my way to a super-healthy lifestyle. Thanks for making the site so awesome. You guys really do lay it all out for us and I can’t wait to try all the recipes!!!

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 2.23.2015 at 2:09 pm #

      AWE! YAY Karen! Thanks for the the great review of Vitamix + green smoothies. We are so happy to hear that you are loving your new blender and recipes. Cheers!

  16. steve 2.20.2015 at 5:21 pm #

    our vitamix variable speed control began operating erratically. sent it in for repair. they put in another defective controller. so we gave up and started shopping again. the comparison above doesn’t mention some very important and great things about the blendtec: it’s half the price, twice the warranty (8 years), the shorter bowl design allows it to fit on the counter under overhead kitchen cabinets, and wait, there’s more … the blades pull down (vitamix throws it up) so you can mill without having to buy a very expensive additional optional accessory bowl.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 2.23.2015 at 1:59 pm #

      Thanks for the comment, Steve. I believe the Vitamix warranty is 7 years. Both great blenders, I am glad you found that works best for you!

    • Jack 2.25.2015 at 1:40 pm #

      Few things. Yes the Blendtec is cheaper and the Vitamix is taller. The Vitamix can grind grains every bit as well as a Blendtech without the added mill container. With the mill container it works even better…

  17. Pam 2.13.2015 at 8:24 am #

    In answer to to Junie’s question about raspberry seeds, the answer is no, my new Vitamix 5200 still leaves gritty seeds in my smoothie. I grow raspberries and freeze them, so I upgraded from my Ninja Pro specifically to not have grit in my smoothies. The Ninja handled all of the other seeds just fine, but not the raspberries. What is so upsetting about purchasing the Vitamix 5200 was that I bought it from a booth at the Indianapolis Home Show. I asked the demo man about raspberry seeds multiple times and he never gave me a direct answer–just that I had 30 days to return it. Well, when I read the Vitamix cookbook that came with it, it had a number of recipes with raspberries and every single one of them had a notation that the seeds would have to be strained out after blending. Since the guy who sold it to me had been doing this for 20 years, I am sure he had to have known this. He should have told me and saved me the aggravation of sending it back. I am still trying to find a blender that will obliterate raspberry seeds, so if anyone knows, please let me know.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 2.13.2015 at 9:33 am #

      Thanks, Pam. :)

    • Jack 2.25.2015 at 1:38 pm #

      Hello Pam,

      The Vitamix will blend the raspberry seeds. You just need to let it blend longer. Remember a Vitamix can run for as long as you need it to. Just run it for two minutes and add half a cup of ice and let it run for another two minutes. After that the seeds should be blended completely.

      • Pam 3.1.2015 at 12:17 pm #

        Thanks, Jack. I will give it a try. Right now, I have both a Blendtec designer 725 and the Vitamix. When I called Vitamix about returning it, they offered to extend the trial period another month. So now I can compare the two and then return one of them. The Blendtec seems to do even worse with the raspberry seeds, in spite of a more powerful motor. But maybe I should just blend both of them longer. By the way, I have found the Blentec smoothie setting to not be long enough for green smoothies–with or without raspberries–so I use the ice cream setting instead. I do love the simplicity of the Blendtec over the Vitamix. And, for control freaks, you can also do everything manually–even easier than on the Vitamix.

      • Pam 3.1.2015 at 1:09 pm #

        Jack, bless you. I took your advice, and it worked! Also, I did the same in the Blendtec, using the whole juice icon, then added ice, and repeated. Neither my husband or myself could detect the slightest bit of grit from the seeds. For my experiment I used: 3/4 cup of liquid (coconut/almond milk), 10 each frozen raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries, plus one fresh banana. I am not advocating this as a recipe. It could be improved by adding some other fruit and greens. In light of this experiment, in future, when using berries, I think I will blend them first, with the liquid and banana, and then add additional ingredients with ice and blend again. Thanks so much!

    • Kelly 3.2.2015 at 8:03 pm #

      Nicole,

      I bought my Vitamix from QVC about 2 years ago and it is the same one as you would buy directly from QVC. I called Vitamix directly to ask them if it is the same quality and had the same guarantee. It does! I use my Vitamix to make just about everything- smoothies, hummus, shredding vegetables and I bought the dry container to make my own flour. Definitely worth the investment.

      • Kelly 3.2.2015 at 8:04 pm #

  21. Ian 2.5.2015 at 1:58 pm #

    This is useful information, but I would really like to know how the blenders stand up to a real test. I went through three kitchen Aides thanks to their excellent warranty and finally got fired and moved up to the Vitamix. My thing is on top of green smoothies I make fruit smoothies for the morning with mostly frozen fruit and just enough yogurt, juice, and bananas to blend it and I also fill the thing up when making hummus which is thick considering the tahini oil. The Vitamix just shuts off when it gets overwhelmed and I can restart it in about a minute. The old Kitchen Aide would just smoke and that was all she wrote. I wonder what the Blendtec can handle.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 2.5.2015 at 5:51 pm #

      Hi Ian. Have you contacted Vitamix about your issue? I think they would love to help and make sure you get a machine that works 100%. https://www.vitamix.com/Customer-Service/Contact-Us

      • Susan 3.8.2015 at 10:06 am #

        The temporary shut off of the motor is part of the design of the Vitamix. It’s intended to keep the motor from being damaged when it starts to get too hot.

  22. Junie 2.2.2015 at 5:58 pm #

    Love the comparison you two have done. I used a Magic Bullet (I got as a gift) for the last couple of years until it finally gave out. I am going ot be purchasing a new blender and I have done a lot of research on the V verses the B. The only thing I have not gotten a straight answer to is do both of these blenders oblierate seeds from raspberries, strawberries, etc.? The little seeds drive me nuts. haha

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 2.2.2015 at 8:25 pm #

      Hi Junie!

      Thanks for reaching out. Since both, Vitamix + Blendtec are high speed blenders, they should make the little seeds not noticeable. I love them both! Can’t go wrong. :)

  23. kim klebine 1.31.2015 at 11:19 am #

    Hi,

    I have really enjoyed the 30 day green smoothie challenge! I have lost 19 pounds thus far! :-) I see this as being a daily habit for sure, as I have found that I literally crave them now! So which Vitamix series blender has the shorter Jar for storage space on your counter?

  24. Chantal 1.29.2015 at 6:39 am #

    Hi! I appreciate that video cause i am not sure of my choice (Blentec)…
    My question is about making a soup: did the blentec can, as the vitamix, do a cream soup hot and ready in 10 minutes?
    Thank you!
    Chantal

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 1.29.2015 at 8:01 am #

      Yes, they both should be able to make soup. Double check before purchase, but it is my understanding that all of them can.

  25. David & Cindy 1.23.2015 at 8:44 pm #

    Hi ladies,
    We did the V versus B comparison. The BlendTec is perfect for counter tops, and does fit under our upper cabinets.
    Also, the Blended offers a longer warranty (8 yrs) and has a larger motor.
    Everything from dry flour to almond milk to I’ve cream to smoothies to soups sail accomplished in a single container, never having to change blades.
    All things considered, we got a great deal at Costco for $299 + tax.
    Bottom line…. It’s a personal preference.

    Enjoy either machine!
    David & Cindy

    • Rob 1.25.2015 at 12:13 am #

      David & Cindy, I was just at Costco and saw the Blendtec demo and I was pretty impressed. I will get the Blendtec most likely since it did a great job, plus I was real happy that it is manufactured right here in the United States.

    I love my Vitamix and I have owned it since April 1997 and it still works the same as when I bought it.

    Thanks for the review ladies! While I wanted a Vitamix, the Blendtec fit into my budget a little better. Plus it fits on my counter and is super easy to clean. Very happy with my purchase….it makes delicious velvety green smoothies! Just made an Almond Butter and Jelly green smoothie and I couldn’t detect any spinach pieces or grape skins. Looking forward to making many green smoothies in the years to come :)

    I am an avid fan of smoothies and juices But when it comes to blender only two come to mind, Vitamix and Blendtec … Both are over priced but since its for Health I want to own one.

    Vitamix Blenders make it seem like a Life long purchase which we all know its not true we buy so many products over the times and break it and new technology comes again on the same buying roller coaster… and in comparision to Blentec which are atleast affordable but again over over priced and whats with their stupid Bricks blending who does that ? I guess to compete they make crazy infomercials.

    Can anyone give me One good blender Vitamix or Blendtec only with same features with model name since that would give a good idea that we are comparing two exact same models.

      Hi Fahad!

      I personally love my Vitamix. Jadah uses a Blendtec and most everyone on our team uses a Vitamix. They come with a 7 year warranty and are the powerhorses of blenders.

      But, I totally hear where you’re coming from. You can buy different blenders that fit in your budget. And we wrote an article about the different ones here :: http://simplegreensmoothies.com/essentials :)

    My husband bought me a Blendtec for Christmas and I have to say I am in love! I am sure the Vitamix is also an awesome blender but I do love my Blendtec. I am a daily green smoothie drinker and I have to say that I look forward to blending every morning with my Blendtec. I had a Nutribullet before and it lasted for over a year but I kept having issues with the top opening some and food would get down into it and you can never clean it out. I still enjoyed my Nutribullet it was a great starter blender.
