With the holidays coming, I've been getting questions about which blender I prefer, Vitamix or Blendtec?
Then, my friend, Angela, sent me this link (thanks Angela!). You may have seen these guys before, they have lots of great videos. I'll tell you what I told Angela.
I have the old Blendtec, which was on the right in that demo. He kept accidentally calling them K-Tec & Champ's because that's what they used to be called. That's what my base says (the one on the right in the video). I got a new carafe, as he called it (the top part) like 8 months ago or something. My new carafe says Blendtec, since they changed the name, but it's the small blade, smaller model still. I would LOVE that new Blendtec with the 4" blade and bigger carafe -the one in the middle in the video. WOW. That thing rocked! The new Blendtec doesn't need a tamper (the thing to push the food down), as you can see in the video, whereas the Vitamix clearly does.
Hope that helps! Love, Kelly
