Comparison of Vitamix with other brands of blender:

The following are some comparisons which are done between 50 + blenders with the Vitamix and I have shared my opinion based on the blender wattage:

0 – 500 wattsAvoid buying this Blender. It is not worth it. 
500 – 800 wattsIt is basically used for blending simple ingredients but it is not successful in blending them smoothly. For example, it cannot be used for Frozen fruits. 
800 – 1000 wattsThe lowest wattage of the Blender which a person can start buying from is this as it will be used for everything except The hardest frozen fruit smoothies.
1000 – 1500 wattsIt is a good range to use this Blender at home as it is powerful enough and affordable.
1500+ wattsA Blender above 1500 watts will automatically be more efficient in blending the items as they will also be able to work faster and will be more durable.

How Long Do Vitamix Blenders Last?

On average a Vitamix blender is able to work for around 10 years even after heavy usage. This is also considered one of the best reasons why Vitamix is one of the most popular blenders. but if the Vitamix are used properly they can even last for a longer time. if a person wants to extend the lifespan of the Vitamix you should follow all the care instructions such as not overloading the Vitamix blender and should add water while blending. You can clean the Vitamix blenders by selecting the clean setting which will do most of the work itself. you just need to add a drop of water and dish soap and run the blender. If the blades of the blender are not working then you just need to replace the blender as Vitamix provides the replacement blades.


The Vitamix blender is also expensive when it is compared to other blenders as it does have many features such as aircraft-grade stainless steel blades and it also does have a durable shell. but keeping the cost aside the Vitamix blender is able to blend many food items properly and can use for longer periods of time.
