Blenders are essential in any healthy living kitchen. A good blender will allow you to make...
- blended salads
- green drinks
- fruit drinks
- vegetable drinks
- and much more
The two blenders I recommend are the VitaMix and the Blendtec. Here are the major differences between the two.
The Blendtec K-Tech is powerful, well built and can handle most any job. The controls are automated, just select a mode and it works automatically until it's done (or you turn it off).
The VitaMix is also very well built, powerful and has a great guarantee. The major difference here is that the VitaMix has manual controls, an on/off, variable speed and hi speed switch. You control the blending 100%. Personally I prefer the VitaMix since I can control the blending process. Once you use it a few times you get a good feeling on what works best for each recipe. I use mine several times a day or more and find it an essential part to my health.
