Buy the Best Blender
When you’re serious about good health and you decide smoothies and whole foods are going to be a staple in your home you’re going to want a serious blender. You can either burn through $99 blenders once a year (I did that 5x) or you can invest in the right equipment and wonder why you waited so long. No matter the goal; nutritious smoothies, easy soups, grinding flax or wheat, crush ice, perfect hummus, etc, etc. – quality equipment makes all the difference.
THE BEST BLENDERS
In my opinion there are only two blenders on the market worth your attention: Blendtec and VitaMix. I spent months trying to decide between the two, because I knew it was a long term purchase. Finally, Blendtec had a design upgrade that made the choice a no-brainer for me.
After a lot of side-by-side comparisons I selected the Blendtec Blender. The choice was neck and neck for a while, then Blendtec came out with a 4 inch blade and a 3 quart (96 oz) BPA-free jar. Blendtec’s upgraded machine is called the Total Blender WildSide.
The 4 inch blade along with the larger carafe makes it easier to blend without as much oxidation. Additionally, the bottom of the carafe is wider making the contents blend faster, without the need for prodding. Blend, Chop, Grind, Freeze, Cook, Hash, Crush, Mince, Dice, Mill, Puree, and Much More! This all-in-one appliance makes smoothies, fresh juice, ice cream, milkshakes, cappuccinos, margaritas, soups, sauces, breads, dressings, salsas and more! It replaces up to 9 other appliances with one fast easy-to-use machine, at a fraction of the cost.
Three out of four of our Healthy Alter Egos now have a Blendtec in their home.
