K125919 - The Blendtec Total Blender with Six Preprogrammed Blend Cycles
I just luv my new blender! Was thinking about getting the Vitamix, but why not pay just a few bucks more! Glad I did!! My fruit & veggies especially the spinach blended right up within minutes!!! Luv the fact that it's digital and easy to clean!!!!
Best Blender in the World
I have had mine for 2 years and used it over 10000 times. I do alot of Catering and Bartending on the side and used the Vitamix but it would overheat and have put the it in the freezer, i burned thru about 10 of those in 5 years.
I use the whole juice button for all my drinks, I like raw food and put in the peel and all.
If you want it thinner just add water and push the pulse button. For hot soup from cold water you push the soup cycle 3 times,but I run it once for raw soup.
You can't do a side to side comparison because all blenders don't work the same, if you aren't using it correctly it won't work right, so call customer service they have a training center for chefs and restaurants in UTAH. They will walk you thru anything.
Jamba Juice was started using the KTEC, so many people wanted their own smoothies they did the blendtec.My friend manages a Jamba Shop and they lost so much business when they switched to vitamix he bought some blendtec for his shop.They have no more chunks of ice and seeds in the smoothies now.
Also I sell the Vitamix in Costco, I can get them for free but don't use them anymore.
My favorite part of the demo is when we keep adding veggies to the soup to distract you that that it takes so long to heat up!
What a blender!
I know this blender is expensive, but after using it every day for two weeks I am thrilled. I've made many green smoothies which were great, but the Taco Soup was fantastic. The recipe book is great for starters, and there are many Blendtec YouTube videos which give wonderful demonstrations. I'm giving my sister my Kitchen Aid Pro blender (which is a wonderful piece of equipment), but it won't fit under my kitchen cabinets. The Blendtec is very easy to clean, as well. I expect I've finally got my last blender! Thanks QVC for the easy pay and free shipping.
I've researched/compared the Blendtec and the Vitamix. Both are great blenders, but the thing that swayed me to the Blendtec was the height. I wanted something that would fit on my counter and under the cabinet. I had been wanting the Blendtec for ages when I discovered that QVC had it on EasyPay. I ordered it right away.
Every time I use the Blendtec I am highly impressed. Smoothies are amazing! I pureed kale (I use kale in my burgers for extra nutrition) and it pureed it so smoothly, it was almost like soup. Fabulous!! I really do love this blender. And the bonus is that it's super easy to clean. Gotta love that!
Works really well
This item needs practice. My first two smoothies were like water with lumps of ice.
My pate went well when I divided the liver in half and pulsed them first. Added the half of the rest of the ingredients and followed instructions. Second half went better.
Juicing was great. No problem.
I really suggest practicing with this.
The best Blender in the world
I use my Blendtec for every thing, Smoothies, ice cream soups, I have even turned ice into snow & made snow cream, I will never own anything else
Look Behind the Counter at Your Local Coffee Shop
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Blendtec! Yes it is a bit loud, but I am in the kitchen...not a library. I have never had anything get "stuck" under the blades like I have with my other blenders (some of them quite expensive). I was very impressed that the connecting gear is metal. Not some cheap plastic (this is what failed on my other expensive blender).
If you are a serious, health concious person...this is the blender for you! I make smoothies for my kids that contain things that they would never eat! Stealth nutrition is easy with this machine!!
Also, look behind the counter at the cookie, pretzel, cinnamon roll and coffee stores at the mall... most of them at the malls I have visited are Blendtec. I am sure they don't get these for free. If the machine is good enough for their continual usage... it is good enough for me!
This Baby Rocks!!
I love that it has the power to make great coffee drinks and smoothies. Made great Hummus, Like that doesnt need a tamper ( the nut butters and hummus did require a spatula to move around between cycles ), It "knows" due to the electronics how to tweak the speed up and down to get everything blended perfectly.....I am just starting out with this but use it almost every day...This will last forever Is built solid right here in the USA!!....it is loud...but all blenders are arent they??? also dont need a separate container for grinding grains for flours...THE EASY PAY MADE IT SO I COULD AFFORD THIS THANKS QVC!!!
Blentec is the BEST!
WOW! WOW! WOW!...........I recieved my blendtec on Wednesday and have already used it 20 times and its only been 3 days. Smoothies are soooo good and the tortilla soup is delicous. Also made a batter for french toast, really good. Easy to clean. I love the recipee book that comes with it. Made chocolate and vanilla ice cream, sooo good, several vegetable juices and fruit juices. Quick and easy and nutritious. LOVE IT!
Love this Blender
I am so happy with this blender! I purchased mine 2/2010 and we use it often. My husband, who thinks I order to much stuff, said THIS was a good buy. We all enjoy using it to make green smoothies. I have since went to the Blendtec website and ordered an even larger jar so that we can make a larger quantity of smoothies at once. One thing I learned was that if it’s not on easy pay you can call QVC and ask for an easy pay plans and they will try to accommodate you, especially since it’s not a cheap blender. When my friend wanted to order hers it wasn’t on easy so I encouraged her to call QVC. She did and they gave it to her on easy pay. Thanks QVC and Blendtec.
Worth the Wait!
I originally wanted the Montel blender, as my girlfriend had one, and we made fantastic kale shakes! I had to wait until it went on EasyPay though, to be able to afford it. I was concerned about some of the not so good reviews about the blenders bearings. My friend had problems with hers as well.
So one day I saw it was Kitchen Day, and everything was on EasyPay! So I ran to my computer and just for kicks, I checked out the Blendtec, as I had heard it was the best, but not in my budget.
The Blendtec was on 5 Easy Payments!!!!! Yay!
I purchased it. Since the day we got it, we have been blending and juicing and are so very pleased with this blender. It is everything and more than I hoped for.
I love the pre programmed settings.
This weekend we are going to try making ice cream and soup! So many things to try!
The main thing is our health. With this blender, we can stay healthy by making the best juice and vegetable drinks imaginable!
Thank you! Buy this! You won't be sorry!
It took 7 months of waiting for this baby, but it was soooo worth it!
OMG, I can't begin to say how much I love this blender. Yes, I have Montel's Health Master & I personally had no problem with it except for size & noise. I decided to "splurg" & try this blender knowing I could return if necessary. You could not pry this machine from me for all the tea in China:) Therefore, the Chevy HealthMaster is relegated to my husband who has hands off my Mercedes Blendtec. I told my sister who has carple tunnel this would be easier for her as opposed to the HM & she ordered immediately. I must say though I wish QVC had the 4qt jar available.I am extremely please with this item. Take the plunge, you won't be disappointed!
