Vitamix vs. KitchenAid

Kitchen appliances are meant to be used as tools; tools that help inspire, create, and minimize the amount of work in between you and your food. However, a blender is more than just a tool – it’s a workhorse. A blender is one of the most versatile appliances you will ever have in your kitchen. You can use it to make anything from dips to soups, or from smoothies to nut butters, all with just the press of a button. The key is picking the right blender. With so many different varieties and features out on the market, it’s hard to know which one to choose. Well, worry no more – Cook Culture is here to help! Taking into account design, power, and functionality, we’ve narrowed it down to two great blenders: the brand new KitchenAid Pro Line blender, with a thermal control jar, and the tested and proven Vitamix Pro 750.

To further help you on your journey of infinite blending possibilities, we’ve filmed Cosmo Meens testing out the two blenders side-by-side in our Victoria kitchen:

Depending on your personal preference and what you place value on, whether it’s more power or less noise, one blender may speak more to you than the other. All-in-all, both blenders are great options to have in your kitchen and are more than capable of fulfilling all your blending needs. They can even be used for kneading bread doughs or making pie crusts! If you’re still considering whether or not you should even delve into the world of blending, there are plenty of recipes, videos, and other inspirations online that will help you take the well-worthy plunge.
