Grab a supercharged Blendtec blender at the lowest price we’ve seen – CNET


After my coffee maker (my, poor, poor coffee maker) the blender is the kitchen appliance I use and abuse most, whipping up fast protein shakes or smoothies most mornings. If you do a lot of blending or plan to start, springing for an upscale model is as worthwhile a kitchen investment as any. As we speak, a powerful Blendtec Classic 575 five-speed blender is down to $185 on Woot. That’s 26% off the list price and as low as we’ve seen this Blendtec blender go. The deal is for Monday only or until inventory sells out.

Blendtec is up there with other elite blender brands such as Vitamix, Ninja and Breville in terms of its performance. The Classic 575 brings big power, speed and control to whip the heck out of frozen foods and dense ingredients. It’ll even pulverize raw nuts and grains for easy nut milk or to make flour from scratch. If you need some proof of Blendtec’s prowess, check out the wildly popular Will it Blend? video series, in which Blendtec takes everything from whole chickens to smartphones for a spin inside the various models (OK, we get it). 

With a 3-horsepower motor — which I believe is more than my first car — you won’t have to question whether or not it can handle a blend and you can really nail consistency down to the finest grades. Although, the truth about horsepower in blenders is a little more complicated than the numbers given.

The Blendtec blender ships via Amazon so Prime members pay nothing but everyone else pays $6, and it should arrive within the week. Trust me, if I didn’t already have a supercharged blender I love, I’d be all over this Blendtec deal.
