I must say, I’m really happy with it.
The Goods –
Way smaller – actually fits on the counter, under the cabinets
Easy to clean – square canister doesn’t have any nooks or crannies
Cheaper – almost $100 cheaper than the competition
Superficial – really good looking
The Bads –
Less control – blend speed and functions are digital, there are no dials (I like dials)
Messy – the liquid really splashes up the insides and on the lid
Anyone looking to buy a real blender for their personal use, Blendtec is where it’s at. The finished product is smooth, the timer function allows you to do other things while it’s blending and the price savings can’t be beat.
If you want a Vitamix I don’t blame you, I’m not a total convert, I just think the Blendtec is a great option for those of us on a budget.
Ps. What’s in the blender? Spinach, parsley, cucumber, apple, pear and water. Fricken’ delicious.
