Some affordable alternatives to Vitamix, darlings!
A friend of mine saw my old and trusty Vitamix and would not leave without it! She fell in love which is understandable. The gadget is awesome!
Blender is by far one of my most used and valued kitchen tools! I use my blender at least twice a day!
It’s great for juices, smoothies, soups, nut butter, dough, just to crush ice, to mill flour, for a quick foamy latte, etc…
Because I use it so intensively, I prefer and need a high-speed blender.
Thanks to the great return policy so stores offer, I have tried out quite a few high-speed blenders. Some are quite impressive, some lack power, some just don’t make it to a second use.
I have experienced with both affordable and high-end blenders. As you may already know, high-speed blenders from Vitamix, Blendtec, and Cuisinart are quite popular, they perform well, but unfortunately, not everyone can afford them or is willing to shell out $ 300 plus for one kitchen gadget, great warranty policy or not!
I am all for the frugal living! I value great performance over name brand. Depends on what the price tag is I also value a great warranty and return policy!
Affordable alternatives to Vitamix,Blendtec, and Cuisinart high-speed blenders
Before I share those 5 affordable alternatives to Vitamix, Blendtec, and Cuisinart blenders please notate below:
Since blender is such a well-used tool, I have some criteria that I refer to when investing in a new one.
Here they are:
- high speed
I prefer 1200 watts or higher. That’s what I need. Please factor in noise. These beasts are not that quiet.
- Warranty length
It’s nice to buy from brands with good warranty policy especially when you are spending hundreds!
More expensive doesn’t always mean more practical, or more useful.
- replacement parts
Some replacement parts are almost as expensive as the blender itself!
From more affordable to least affordable
# 1 affordable alternatives to Vitamix, Blendtec, Cuisinart
- Oster Pro 1200 Blender plus ( $51.99)
Why we love it?
It’s affordable, powerful, comes with the Oster 10 Year DURALAST All-Metal Drive Limited Warranty for lasting durability. Everything is blended evenly. I tested it for vegetable juice and smoothie. It worked ok for nut butter but required extra time.
It heats up after prolonged usage. Least Loud.
#2 affordable alternatives to Vitamix, Blendtec, Cuisinart
For $103, this blender is one heck of a beast!
What do we love?
- easy to operate
- 8 pre-programmed one-touch buttons-smart technology
- heavy duty 2 horsepower motor
- 1500 watts
- 4 surgically sharp blades
The warranty period is 60 days. Better make sure you like it before you decide to keep it! Not made for prolonged usage, it heats up quite a bite! And would probably raise the dead!

# 5 affordable alternatives to Vitamix, Blendtec, Cuisinart
$179.99. This is my third ninja blender. The first one I forgot while relocating from one state to another. The second one came cracked, I just returned it for a complete refund, and this one which I had to exchange because the first I received didn’t even turn on.
What do we love about it?
It has a clean program. Just add some water and soap, turn it on after you are done. Easy clean-up!
7 years limited warranty.
Sharp blades.This blender was made to mill flour, and makes the smoother nut butter!
Dishwasher safe? No! Take my word on this, do not put the pitcher in the dishwasher! and oh, it’s the louder of the bunch! Poor quality assurance. I believe I almost gave my poor bunny a heart attack the first time I turned on! True story! Haha!
