The Blendtec Total Blender Classic, Product Review
Healthy nutrition really is an important topic for me and my familiy. Although we all like a varied breakfast each and every morning looks nearly about the same in terms of what we eat.
Since we have started to prepare nutricious and healthy breakfast smoothies as well as vegetable shakes for breakfast a couple of years ago, we realized that we eat more fruits in the morning than we used to eat the whole day. Even the kids love their healthy breakfast smoothie as there are many fresh juicing recipes which make their start into the day varied and colorful.
The blender has a 64 oz fourside jar and allows you to prepare a bigger portion of your Blendtec recipe.
The Blendtec Total Blender Classic is a commercial grade blender with a 3.0 peak horsepower motor.
This powerful blender creams, chops and even heats all within a single unit. It really is a our best new buddy in the kitchen and I will walking you through some of our personal favourite aspects of the Blendtec Total Blender Classic within this review.
This is an Expensive Blender – But the Cost Savings are remarkable
Before we made our decision (and this was not really easy because of the price) to buy the Blendtec Total Blender Classic we used to buy our wholefood juices at the market or in a health food shop. As we really like our food to be natural and without chemical ingredients or extra sugar.
This often times led to additional costs of $200+ per month as just one litte container of juice regularily was about $9-10 (depending on what we wanted). And of course just one container of juice would have been never enough for one serving of the whole family.
So the decision was finally made. And we started to create our own juices every day. As all of them (and a lot of things more) can be made with fresh ingredients in the Blendtec Total Blender Classic. Which allows us to liquidy nearly everything – from strawberries and bananas to even rockhard avocado cores and ice cubes – into a tasty and healthy drink. Just great and we quickly saw that we were saving money.
There are a lot of Things to Discover – More than Juices.
Guacamole, dough for cookies and bread, ice cream, baby food and even soup!
Soup? Yes, it is possible to create your own soup with this extraordinary blender with no efforts. As it’s friction does not only blend up delicous soups, it will also heat them up in just one step – ready to serve.
This great and helpful function really saves a lot of time and energy. As you will be able to serve a fresh soup within just 10 minutes.
Besides juicing there are many different ways of using your Blendtec Total Blender Classic.
A bunch of creative and healthy online recipes are available for this blender. You can even get more inspiration on Youtube watching people with their Blendtec blender.
Currently our own favourite Recipe – Tomato-Orange Soup
1 red pepper
2 peeled oranges
60g unsalted cashews
2-4 leaves common basil
sea salt & black pepper
Before blending we use to add some yoghurt, a tiny bit of fresh red chilly and some honey. This soup really tastes good. And it is done in no time.
Cleaning – Soo Easy in just Three Steps
- Fill in a drop of dish soap and warm water
- Run Blendtec Total Blender Classic on high for about 20 seconds.
- Open upside and towel to dry.
My Opinion on Blendtec Total Blender Classic
We really became fans of this powerful and multifunctional blender right from the beginning. And we know others who are in LOVE with their Blendtec blender as well and would never give it away.
Honestly the most clear disadvantage is the high investment on this quality blender which took us more than a moment to think about and to make our decision. But we can say that you really do get what you paid for.
An 8 year warranty is included which stands out from the crowd of the numerous $200 blenders.
This review is not only a recommendation for the Blendtec Total Blender Classic. It is also a thought-provoking impulse which should make you think of healthy nutrition and it’s positive effects on you and your family.
Do your health a favaour and teach your kids that healthy food does not come from a box or a bag.
I highly recommend you pickup your own Blendtec Total Blender Classic. Costco runs offers of them all the time (if you have a membership) and if you are a big online shopper like we are, Amazon.com has the best deals on this blender.
