I had over $1,000 worth of blenders sitting on my kitchen counter last week and things got noisy and busy! The three powerful, expensive blenders I tested — the Breville Boss, Vitamix 5200, and Blendtec 625 — each claim to have unique features that can take care of all your blending needs, so were these claims accurate and should you invest in one? If so, which one is right for you?
How well a blender functions is a combination of so many factors: container shape and design, power, blade design, speed, and so on. The best way to see how well they stack up against each other is to place them side by side and run them through the exact same tests. Direct comparisons are the best way to judge which blender performs a task the best and give insights into how good or not-so-good design comes into play. I did the comparison and here are my conclusions.
