Vitamix Alternatives (recommend your blender)

I really want a Vitamix.

But I just can't justify spending a car payment and a half on a blender!

Recommend your non-vitamix blenders. Looking for something good and affordable.

I have a Bosch kitchen centre. It's powerful enough to mill 50 pounds of flour in an hour.

The blender part can handle ice cubes. 

I have no interest in having a vitamix, but I could be tempted to getting a kitchen centre with an induction heater :D

The blendtec is way better than the vitamix! Vitamix even got sued because they ripped off blendtec's design. It is worth every penny!

Sorry . . i do have a Vitamix.  After blowing through about 3 different blenders i figured i've paid for a Vitamix with the cost of replacing blender, after blender, after blender.  

America's Test Kitchen did a blender review and recommended a good blender that was cheaper than Vitamix.  It was about $200+ but of course i can't remember the name.  Just do a YouTube search for America's Test Kitchen BLENDER REVIEW and i think it will come up, the video.

It's the Breville Hemisphere.

Also you can get a refurbished vitamix for cheaper than brand new.

I only remember because it's on my amazon wish list!! I want either the Breville or a refurbished vitamix.

I really don't want to pay for a vitamix. But when I think of buying the other, which I feel confident is a good blender, I start to think I might as we save up another $100 and get the vitamix!

I just bought the nutribullet. It makes whole foods into juice texture. Keeps all the fiber. Depends on what you want the vitamix for.
