Blendtec vs Vitamix Power and Performance
Both these blenders are at the top of the list for powerful home use blenders. In comparing the Blentec vs Vitamix power, you will find that Blender uses more power to get things done. It draws 1560 watts and 13 amps. The Vitamix draws 11.5 amps and 1380 watts. Clearly either blender can easily get any common kitchen task done in no time. Does a couple of amps and watts make a difference? At this level, not really.
A proclaimed advantage of the Vitamix is that they have variable speed control. Not only can does their maximum RPM of ~37,000 rate greater than Blendtec’s ~28,000 but its minimum ~500 RPM is much less than the Blendtec ~ 4000 RPM. What that means is that you have a wider variety of speed control with the Vitamix. Also, the variable speed dial allows for complete control of the speed from minimum to maximum versus the 10 speeds of Blendtec.
Blendtec is not to be outdone with its digital computer controlled technology. All Blendtec blenders have the unique feature of programmed cycles. This allows for the opportunity to push a button and let the blender run through a set blending cycle to perform a task. Also known as the “set it and forget it” feature, this is oftentimes what tilts users to choose a Blendtec. It is also what helps some shopper to decide against it. Some users prefer the simplicity of the Vitamix switch and dial controls over the high-tech features of the Blendtec. You see there is much to consider in the Blendtec vs Vitamix quandary. It’s not something to rush.
