Is a Blendtec worth it?
Is a blendtec worth it? If you read our article Natural Remedies to Erectile Dysfunction. You know we talk about diet and exercise as the absolute first step to curing
any manhood woes whether it’s a size issue or a functionality problem. We strongly believe in the power of juicing/blending. The standard American diet is full of unnatural chemicals and preservatives which could substantially impact a person’s health. This is all discussed in Juicing for your Manhood. So if you’ve decided you want to get into juicing you know you need to invest in a good blender. That’s why we recommend Blendtec blenders. Is Blendtec worth it? We feel that it is. Specifically the Blendtec classic blender with 4-side jar is the best choice for a beginner juicer/green smoothie maker. Why? Because it delivers the best value.
Why do I need a good blender?
The average American household owns at least once blender (85% according to the Washington Post), however, they only use the blender 3-5 times a month. With competition stiff companies realize this fact and cut corners in order to keep the price down. Let’s take a look at an ‘average’ blender shall we?
Hamilton Beach Wave Crusher Multi-Function Blender with 14 Speeds & 40 oz Glass Jar, Silver
- Wave-action system forces mixture down into the blades for smooth results every time
- Unique, mess-free pour lid
- 700 watts of peak power
This blender is about costs about 30 bucks on amazon. It’s perfect for someone that wants to make some fruit smoothies once or twice a week. But lets look at the specs. It packs a shallow 700 watts of peak power. That means at its best it has the power of about 5 to 9 light bulbs. If you want to start a green smoothie diet where you’re using it to liquefy raw fruits, vegetables, and crush ice 2-3 days a day you’ll burn this puppy out really quickly.
That means I need to spend $500+ on a blender right?
No! We’ll let you in on a little secret. Those sites & personalities that are hawking $500 or $1000 blenders to home consumers are often getting a kick back from the manufacturers for doing so. We don’t blame them since that’s how they pay the bills but that’s not who we are at Packedman. Let’s take a look at the one of the most common really expensive blenders that are being hawked.
Vitamix A3500 Brushed Stainless Blender
- Built in digital timer
- 1500 Watts
- 64 Ounces
- 5 Program settings
- Auto adjusts blending times and stops automatically when done
Please don’t take us wrong this is very good blender. The specifications are spot on and if you get this blender it will definitely do the job. In fact its the perfect blender–if you owned a small restaurant. We feel, however, that its simply over kill for what an average juicer / green smoothie maker needs. This guy goes for over 500 bucks on amazon. That’s a chunk of a mortgage payment for many folks!
Then what’s a good blender?
A good blender needs to be the best value. That means not the cheapest nor the most expensive. You need a blender that fits your needs; nothing more and nothing less. This is why we, as we stated in the first paragraph, we love the Blendtec Total Blender Classic with 4-side jar.
