I often get asked about “deals” on high-power blenders. If you are interested in smoothies, juices (with pulp) and just generally eating more healthy, whole foods, a high-power blender is a blessing.
But it’s not an inexpensive one – so I always want to disclaim this with my standard, “If you can’t afford it, it’s not a bargain – no matter how big the sale!”
That said, Amazon has taken a big price cut on the Vitamix TurboBlend Two Speed in Black (model 1782) for $359.99 (reg. $479.99) and it ships for FREE.
- Super-efficient 2 peak horsepower motor
- Oversize, 64-ounce container
- Locking lid design for easy removal
- Patented tamper tool for processing thick ingredients and to prevent air pockets from forming
- Full color recipe book with over 160 recipes
- This machine runs on 120 volts
When we got our blender two years ago, we were debating between the BlendTec and the VitaMix. In the end, we went with the BlendTec — but I don’t think you can go wrong with either of these extremely high-rated blenders.
Shipping is free with your Amazon Prime account – or via Super Saver Shipping.
By way of comparison, the Costco price on the VitaMix (typically the best deal) is $499.99. Now, their blender comes with both a wet blade jar and a dry blade jar, whereas the Amazon model has just the one (standard) wet blade jar. But for a price difference of $140, you could easily pick up a dry blade jar for less than that!
Thanks, Give Me Neither.
