The Blendtec blender is a must-have kitchen tool for me! My family got this blender a few years ago when we got tired of lower-quality blenders that just not cutting it anymore. I researched between the Vitamix and the Blendtec and ultimately got the Blendtec (mainly because it was at Costco at the time- I've seen both there though). The difference between the Blendtec and a regular blender was INSTANTLY noticeable. This blender blends anything with ease and efficiency! I mainly make smoothies but have experimented with nut butters, pestos, soups, avocado-chocolate mousse... you name it! I use it for jobs that typically I'd need to break out my food processor for, like blending dates or making no-bake snack bars. It's functionality is great and the quality is amazing. My blender is still like new. If I ever needed to replace it, I would in a heartbeat. My morning smoothie is done in a heartbeat and washing it is SO easy, I literally just need to rinse it out if I do it straight away.
Side note: Blendtec offers factory refurbished models of their blenders on their website, which are significantly more affordable than new.
this is the best blender out there- seriously it blends everything. We use it every morning and with frozen fruit- the warranty is over 8 years for full replacement. can't beat that
