Do you need to sharpen Vitamix blades?

Vitamix blades, actually, are dull on new units. The blades work by pulverizing, not cutting. For a blender that relies on sharp blades for slicing, check out my bloody review of the Ninja Ultima. Vita-mix won't sharpen the blades, but they will give you a tune-up for free!

What's better Blendtec or Vitamix?

With the use of the tamper, Vitamix made a better consistency ice cream without having to start and stop. Blendtec advertises that their blender is tamper-free, which makes blending and storing the blender a lot easier, but in this particular application, a tamper would have been beneficial.

Which is better Vitamix or ninja?

Vitamix's milling ability is far superior to Ninja even though both have a 1500W motor. Ninja has its signature tower of sharp blades running up the entire middle of the blender jar, whereas vitamix has thick, blunt blades at the bottom of the jar.

What color vitamix should I get?

Bottom line. If you are not an “adventurer” looking for challenges in your kitchen, a red Vitamix might be a good pick. But if you want to get the most out of it, choose blue or white.

Can you put ice in a blender?

Ice Cubes. Unless you have a high-powered blender that's up to the challenge, putting ice cubes in your blender can dull the blade. Ditto for big chunks of frozen fruit. Use slightly thawed fruit (ten minutes out of the freezer should do the trick) or crushed ice instead.

Why is my Blender not blending?

If your blender blends but doesn't blend things correctly, you may have the power setting too high or too low. If the food becomes pureed and you wanted it chunky, you should turn the blender setting down. If you're blending a new food, it might be best to blend slowly or pulse the blender to see how quickly it blends.
