Comments We like the LCD display and pre-programmed cycles as well as the auto off feature. This is the most powerful blender of the 3 units being compared. We like the LCD display and pre-programmed cycles as well as the auto off feature. This is the most powerful blender of the 3 units being compared.

This model also has the larger 96 carafe that comes with a 4" blade. We find the larger carafe and blade more efficient at blending than the 64oz version.

  Tamper that is included is also a nice feature.  This unit is a bit more quiet than the champ.  Harder to clean due to the taller carafe.   This is our favorite blender, for a few reasons:

1. Variable Speed Control

2. Includes FREE Bonus Items- a $90 value!
Live Fresh Book with over 200 raw, vegan and vegetarian recipes
Let's Get Started DVD  and a 100% Hemp Nut Milk Bag

This is the newest blender available on the market, and offers a wealth of features for the price. The Omega B2300 is positioned to compete against the Vitamix 2 speed.  It performs well, but has a shorter warranty and performs close, but not exactly like a vitamix.. The Omega B2400 is identical to the Omega B2300 but adds in a pulse switch and a variable speed control knob.  It performs well, but has a shorter warranty and performs close, but not exactly like a vitamix.. The Omega B2500 is the top-of-the-line Omega Blender that includes  the variable speed control as well as a timer that will turn off the blender It performs well, but has a shorter warranty and performs close, but not exactly like a vitamix..

Frequently asked Questions about Blenders:

Are the blenders easy to clean?
Yes, the blenders we offer are much easier to clean than "department" store blenders that have 4 parts to the carafe (i.e.: carafe, gasket, blade and nut).  The units listed above have a 1 piece carafes, with the blade and bearings built in.  The manufacturers recommend to put some liquid detergent in the blender with a little water, and turn it on for a little while.  This will swish the water around the blender, and do a fairly decent job cleaning it.  

What's the best blender?
That's really tough to say.  They are all high-powered units that will easily out perform household blenders.    Of course, if you wanted the maximum power, and price is no object, the Blendtec Home blender is better choice.  Its hard to say which of those two is "the best".  It DEPENDS on the features that are important to you.   Both machines are VERY HIGH powered units, that will outperform the blenders in your local department store.  Read about the most powerful blender. We have used them side by side to make smoothies and grind flax seeds into powder, and they BOTH produced the SAME high quality end result.     We like the Blendtec Home blender because the carafe is easier to scoop things out of (its short and "wide", compared to the long and tall container of the vitamix).  With the Blendtec Home  two prong blade, its easier to use the champ as a food processor, and we find it more effective for "grinding" type project than the 4 star blade of the vitamix.  If I had to pick one I would purchase, I would go for the Vitamix TurboBlend VS.  as it has the variable speed control knob and includes $90 in bonus items (Book, DVD and 100% Hemp Nut Milk Bag)..  By nature, blenders require LIQUIDS to work properly.  If you want to blend things that are NOT as liquid, purchase a blender that comes with the tamper, such as the Vitamix TurboBlend VS.  The Tamper will allow you to push items into the blade that are not getting blended if there is not enough liquid in the machine.

What are some of the differences between the Blendtec Home Blender and the Vitamix TurboBlends?
If you want something that gives you feedback, the Blendtec Home blender is nice, due to its LCD display, that tells you the speed of the blender. On the other hand, its our opinion that the vitamix is a bit quieter than the Blendtec Home blender.  The TurboBlends also includes a tamper to help push things into the blender, which is something the Blendtec Home blender doesn't offer.  If warranty is important, the Blendtec Home blender has an 7 year warranty,   with a lifetime warranty on the coupling and blade.. The TurboBlend 4500 has a 5 year warranty and the TurboBlend VS has a full 7 year warranty.  Technically the Blendtec Home blender has a more powerful motor behind it.. (13 amps vs. 11.5 amps)   The Blendtec Home blender is computer controlled and will automatically turn itself off and vary its speed of spinning (which helps to suck the item being processed into the blade), while the TurboBlend 4500 has no computer and relies on the user to turn it off and on and select either high or low speed.  The TurboBlend VS has variable infinite speeds.   Watch our youtube videos below to see the specific differences. 

What is your honest opinion about the Omega B2300 Blender?  Is it worth it?
For the price, it is an excellent deal.   You get performance close to the vitamix, without the high price tag.  We found the Omega B2300-B2400 and B2500 blades not quite as sharp as the vitamix (but about as sharp as the Blendtec).  Omega Blenders have been sold for many years in the FoodService industry, and we feel they are long-lasting, durable units that may be an option for people that use their blender occasionally, and want a high power blender.  We wish the warranty was longer than 2 years.  For people dedicated to the living and raw foods diet who use their blender everyday, we suggest saving for a Vitamix TurboBlend VS.

Which blender has a sharper blade,  the Blendtec Home  blender or the TurboBlend 4500?
Based on our tests, I would have to say the   Vitamix TurboBlend Two Speed and TurboBlend VS has a sharper blade than the blade on the Blendtec Home.  What does this mean? Basically the Blendtec tends to "beat" things around rather then blend them.  This lengthens total blend time.  I have also experienced a "finer" consistency with things blended in the Vitamix.

Have you heard about the Waring Pro MX1000 Blender with 3 horsepower?
Yes, we have, and we evaluated this model for a month before deciding not to sell this model.  The blades seem to "beat" things around even more than the Vitamix 4500.  In addition, the carafe is "fluted" so that it makes it much harder to clean than even the vitamix 4500.   Also in the past, our company has had customer service issues with the waring company.  In addition, even though the blender is rated at 3 horsepower, in our tests, the Blendtec Home  Blender outperformed this model.

Do you offer extra carafes for the blenders and why would I need one?
Having an extra carafe for a blender can come in really handy.  Say you are making a raw pizza, that requires blending the nut cheese and the tomato sauce, you could blend one in each of the blenders.  In addition, in the morning, your significant other could have his/her own carafe to blend their smoothie, and you could have one for your blended drink. In some cases, if I'm too lazy to do the dishes, that extra carafe is like gold :).  We currently offer a selection of carafes for both the Vitamix and Blendtec Home. Check out our blender parts on the blender page.

Do you offer the Vitamix 5200?   Isn't that the "latest" model?
We do not offer the Vitamix 5200 model.  We offer the Vitamix TurboBlend VS.  The Vitamix TurboBlend VS is the "latest" Vitamix Model and is identical in function to the Vitamix 5200.  We feel the TurboBlend VS is a much better value because it includes $90 of FREE bonus items, such as the LIVE FRESH book that contains over 200 raw, vegan and vegetarian recipes as well as a DVD with Ani Phyo, a famous raw food chef and a 100% Hemp Nut Milk Bag.   The 5200 model does not offer these bonus items.   If you did still want to purchase the Vitamix 5200,  Please click this link to get a $25 discount when you purchase online directly from Vitamix. If you decide to call them to order, be sure to mention discount code 06-005420.   Vitamix can be reached at 1-800-848-2649.   The TurboBlend Two Speed, TurboBlend VS, and 5200 are all CURRENT models. 

What is the difference between the Vitamix TurboBlend Two Speed and the Vitamix TurboBlend VS?  
Both machines have the same motor.  Both machines now use the same wet-blade.  They use the same BPA-FREE 64 ounce container with wet blade.  The main difference is the TurboBlend VS has a variable speed control knob while the Two Speed model has... two speeds.  The warranty on the TurboBlend VS is 2 years longer.  In addition the TurboBlend VS includes $90 in FREE bonus accessories.  We feel that the extra warranty, variable control knob, and FREE bonus items, are easily worth the extra price of the TurboBlend VS.\

What is the most common part to fail on a blender?  
The most common part to fail on any blender is the bearing assembly in the blender carafe.  Based on personal experience, the bearing assembly will last longer in the Vitamix than the Blendtec Blenders.  With the Vitamix, the bearing assembly can be ordered ordered separately and replaced, in the Blendtec, the Bearing assembly is non-removable and the whole jar must be replaced.   That's not really a price issue because the whole jar on the Blendtec is less expensive than the bearing assembly on the vitamix.  That being said, remember, when you purchase your new blender from DiscountJuicers.com you get the full manufacturers warranty, which covers the bearing assembly/carafe if it should fail during the warranty period.

How much is shipping? 
Shipping depends on the weight of the blender and your zip code.  To get an estimate, proceed to the web page of the item and enter your zip code in the space provided and click "go".  We are currently paying for the shipping on the Blendtec Home  Blender, Vitamix Turboblend 4500, Vitamix TurboBlend VS, the Omega B2300, B2400 and B2500 blenders.

I'm a visual person, it's great you have made this write-up, but I want to see first hand the difference between the Vitamix Two Speed and Blendtec Home?
