Vitamix CIA Professional Series Review (98/100)
Vitamix CIA (Culinary Institute of America) has been holding the title of one of the best blenders available on the market for years now. Manufacturers have been unable to top this incredible machine. Owning a Vitamix in your kitchen is very similar to owning an exotic sports car.

Blendtec Professional’s Choice Total Review (94/100)
Its no surprise to see this iconic blender take our number two highest rated blender slot. Blendtec Total Blender for long time has been trying to overthrow Vitamix from their number one spot. The Blendtec is an excellent blender for those seeing a very high quality blender, and would like to save around $150 from buying the Vitamix CIA blender. A very simple to use 1,560 watt blender with stainless steel blades that spin near 30,000 rpm that get amazing blending consistency of whichever object is in the blending jar.
You may have seen Blendtec’s “Will it Blend” YouTube show, if you haven’t definitely check it out to see the true power of this amazing appliance. On the show they test the strength, durability, and power of the blender by attempting to blend items that a normal person would not put in a blender. Anything from marbles, diamonds, phones, golf balls and just about anything they can get their hands on. Every time you doubt that the blender can handle it, it flawlessly makes a smoothie out of the items put into it without thinking twice.
Waring Pro MX1000R Professional (88/100)
Waring Pro MX1000R blender is a great choice for those seeing a simple, well priced, and exceptionally well performing blender. Waring is not a well known brand as Vitamix and Blendtec, but that doesn’t stop them from creating a blender that some rave about. The MX1000R is your standard 64 ounce blender with a polycarbonate pitcher, which is basically military strength plastic, used in windshields in aircraft.
Waring MX1000R has very simple controls of just two switches. One for changing from high and low speeds, and another for a pulse function. Most enjoy the simplicity of the blender, others wish there were more features. The 3.5 hp motor that will turn the blending blades to the speeds over 30,000 does not discriminate of what is being blended. For a blender around the $300 zone, the MX1000R is a good choice for those seeing a high quality blender without the price tag of Vitamix or Blendtec blenders.
Breville is well known from creating some of the top juicer machines that one can buy. Their expertise also reaches into the world of blenders. My favorite feature of this blender is the hemispherical shape of the bottom of the jug. Look closely at the picture, you can see how all the ingredients would be forced into the shape. The benefit? The blades take up that small area entirely, meaning no wasted or unblended chunks will be left after you’re done blending.
Breville BBL605XL has all necessary features one might need. A powerful 750 watt motor, 48 ounce pitcher. The buttons light up for easier reading. Dedicated smoothie and ice crushing buttons. Pulse function. The BBL605XL was rated as the best blender in 2012, and will definitely take a high rating in 2013 and forward. Operating the BB605XL can easily be expressed in the following; simplicity and functionality.

Ninja BL660 Professional (82/100)
Ninja may not be the most popular or most well known brand, but that doesn’t stop them from making some really amazing kitchen blenders with great value. When buying a blender one must always ask themselves if they will be needing a full size kitchen blender, or maybe a personal blender for whipping up some quick smoothies. The feature that makes the BL660 stand out over others, is its ability to do both! With a purchase of the blender you also receive a single serving attachment that replaces the full size 72 ounce jug. Which is perfect if all you want at the moment is a personal smoothie or a shake.
The BL660 will set you back around $150, which is fairly inexpensive when compared to the big players like Vitamix, Breville and Blendtec. But you don’t really lose out on any important features. You still get 1,000 watts of power, variable and pulse speeds. Not to mention the 72 ounce jar that is larger than majority of blenders that max out at 64 ounces. So what is the true verdict on the capabilities that the Ninja BL660 brings to the kitchen? You’ll have to read my full review for that!
