Vitamix vs Cheap Blender | Is It Worth The Money?

► My Vegan Recipe Ebook:

I get a lot of questions about blenders? So today I thought I would compare my Vitamix with the cheapest blender I could find.

In hindsight I probably should have made something that would challenge the blenders more… but maybe that calls for another video?

Let me know down below if you want another, more difficult test!

for 200$ it should atleast come with a thick glass container and not plastic

Gabriel Ortiz says:

I was in “transition” so I bought a cheap blender expecting to buy better later on, however, I was very pleasantly surprised as to how it totally does the job and I don’t even put it in the higher settings!
Also I think purchased organic butters are just fine so I don’t need to do all that work and don’t need to pulverize rice either….lol!

Spasoje Kulasevic says:

The problem is with the sharpness of the blades

Geco Correal says:

“I am hard on this thing” :V

Brian Williams says:

I use an oster 60 dollar blender. Blends smooth and quick as well and stops on its own when it’s ready!

Katie Pecotich says:

I cant live without my high powered blender!

Derek, what is your thought on Huel shakes. It saves so mucht time and i think its super healthy

Adam Ungson says:

have you heard or tried the dynapro vacuum blender? got mine for $400 with free shipping and 15 year home use warranty. sold my Vitamix.

Igal Brener says:

Hi Derek, do the Vitamix vs Blendtec please…

Daniel R. Rothschild says:

An absolute no-brainer! Don’t be stingy and get the best first time! I got a biochef living food blender and it kicks ass too!

Thanks for the video. Personally, I would never have thought to try this, but I found it hilariously entertaining! I would, however, like to point out that Vitamix recommends running its blenders for one minute when making smoothies. I am on my fourth Vitamix blender, my most recent purchase was the A3500; they truly are amazing machines. Thanks again for the entertainment factor!

Pichounator says:

Be pretty neat if you blended the smaller blender in the Vitamix 😀

iKan says:

Jovan Damnjanovic says:

I have Vegavita blender(some kind of vitamix copy), 1500w cost about 120 in dolars counted, works like Vitamix, and I push it to the limit all the time 🙂

Larry N says:

Smooth as vegan butter lol

blackl1steddrums says:

Yeah but is it 16X better?? That’s the diff in price…

Dine Loshaj says:

I would love to see a date bar video

I worked with a ninja for a long time. The thing is a piece of shit. Terrible design. I think it’s time for a vitamix

John Texas says:

I bought my first Vita-Mix (as they called it back then) more than 30 years ago, the all-metal one. I’ve owned several iterations of the current type over the last 25 years; they all still work perfectly! I pass them on to friends or family if I get a new model. I love the traditional Oster and Waring blender, but there’s no way that they do what the VM does. You, like me, are obviously a guy who makes full use of the power of the Vitamix, and you’re right, it becomes an investment worth every penny. Best wishes from Texas-

Ryan Gallagher says:

My Vitamix is my baby. It overheated for the first time the other day and I thought I broke it but then found out that it just can do that sometimes. It’s working great again

Lisa Allen says:

I’ve been debating on spending the money on a vitamix. I hate chunky smoothies! Thanks for this comparisons.

MelRox says:

I got my Vitamix from Costco when the vendor is there they have good deals on them. I do have an old $20 Blended too and I do agree that it does not blend as well as the Vitamix does

Eboni Hanson says:

I just wish vitamix wasn’t so expensive.

Cameryn Beaudry says:

bestbuy canada has the blendtec on for 299$

rexandroza says:

Ive had a cheapie Oster blender for 10 yrs and my neighbors can hear me blending LOL buuuut it makes everything smooth after 5 mins or so LOL. it works. oh a fitness instructor when i was 13 told me you gotta chew or hold the smoothie’s juice in ur mouth a bit not swallowing it instantly this way it helps absorbing nutrients better.

Richard Gray says:

Using the plunger IS a fair comparison. It’s part of the Vitamix and should be used if it’s needed. Just because the other blender does not have a plunger is not Vitamix’s fault. It’s kinda like saying, “I’m gonna keep the speed of the Vitamix low to make it a fair comparison because the cheap blender can’t run as fast.”

Tom Tech says:

Great comparison! Vitamix is awesome for the more demanding tasks. However the older vitamix models are weak at the speed control. I just made a Vitamix repair video:
