Blendtec Pro 800 Review

“The Quiestest Blender in the World”

Performance blenders signify a need for noise, traditionally.   As with power, comes noise.  But Blendtec Pro 800 does not live based on tradition, but does pack some newer tech inside it, to make it not only the most powerful blender on todays market, but also a truly quiet machine.  

Blendtec Pro 800 Performance

Blendtec blenders are known for their high-performance, and commercial-level power.  Blendtec blenders started a campaign video series called ‘Will it Blend‘.   The blenders were so tough, they made videos of them Blending Amazon Echos, and Apple iPhones.   The Blendtec Pro 800 is no different.  This will blend anything you put in it.   If you want the capability of making any kind of Soups, easily blending ice, crushing frozen fruits, mixed drinks, etc…  then this may be the right choice for you.   There is no other blender that compairs to the power of Blendtec Pro 800, not even the Vitamix 7500 Blender.  

Blendtec Pro 800 review 2020 - best blender

Power

The Blendtec Pro 800 is the crème de la crème, the ‘elite’ of the blenders.  With 15 amps and 1800 watts of power, the Blendtec 800 Pro can easily  peak at 3.8 horsepower.  This actually makes the Blendtec Pro 800 the most powerful home-use blender on the market.  Impressive!

So it has power, but doesn’t that make noise?

Noise production.. or lack thereof

Being the most powerful blender on todays market, you would expect the Blendtec Pro 800 to make some noise.  However, Blendtec used some sort of stealth technology on this one, and it happens to be 10 decibels quieter (half as quiet) than any other Blendtec / Vitamix blender on the market as well!   The decibel output for the Blendtec 800 Pro is 67.

The Blendtec Pro 800 stealth technology combines sound dampening, within its airtight enclosure, to produce this effect.  So enjoy continuing your conversation as you blend your favorite drink for you and your friend, without the awkward pause.  

Blendtec Pro 800 has stealth technology built into it, which is actually great at reducing sound. This model blender only outputs 65 decibels.

Size

The only thing that might be considered a ‘negative’ about the Blendtec Pro 800 blender, is the size of it, or the amount of space needed to occupy your counter / cuppard to keep it on display or out of sight.  Part of its bulk, is the stealth technology ‘air tight enclosure’, which needs to have the ability to be opened and closed where you store it.  This takes up a little more room than normal.  

Consider the twister jar, to take up less space, but acknoledge what you are losing when doing so:  The 10 decibels of quieter room while blending.  Make a decision as to what is more important to you.. maybe the extra space is not so bad?

Controls / usability

We read that Blendtec Pro 800 blender gave a very top notch user experience, and wanted to check it out for ourselves.  After unboxing, we noted that the top 6 blendcycles that helped get Blendtec on the map were included on the front flat panel.  Also included, were an 11 speed capacitive touch and separate pulse control.  

Batters:  

This cycle stayes at lower speeds for shorter amounts of time, to combine your batters or dips. Used to fully combine flavors, without over-mixing.  

 

Mixed Drinks:

Used for mixed drinks, iced coffees and milkshakes, this cycle has a slightly lengthened blend time over ‘batters’, ideal for this type of drink.

 

Smoothie:

This cycle slows down the speed of the blending, alternating between fast, and slow, because the types of smoothies and thicker drinks it creates requires rapid speeds to blend together denser fruits, but also slower speeds to give your drink the desired texture.

 

Frozen Treats:

Ice creams, sorbets and frozen yogurts are what this cycle was designed for.  This blend will speed up and slow down to ensure that your frozen treats stay frozen.  

 

Whole Juice:

This blend cycle is meant to completely cut and blend through tough and dense vegetables and fruits like celery, carrots, apples, and seeds.  If you are considering using any fruits / vegetables that include the stems, stalks, or skins – be sure to use the ‘whole fruit’ cycle.  This is what you would be using for your ‘green’ smoothies.

 

Hot Soup: 

This cycle is designed for hot recipes.  Interestingly, this cycle combines fast speeds with longer timeframes to create a heated up environment, best suited for hot meals.  Useful for soups, hot chocolates, fondues and more.  

Capacitive touch slider / pulse

In addition to the 6 blend cycles mentioned above, the Blendtec Pro 800 also includes two other controls to fine-tune your experience.  The capacitive touch slider, as well as the pulse mix.  

The capacitive touch slider allows you to manually fine-tune the speed of your blender.  Simply slide your finger to the right to increase speeds, or slide to the left to decrease blender speeds.  

The pulse button is what you would use for chopping, mincing, whipping, or other tasks that really do no require long blend times.  Use pulse to quickly stir a blend together again before serving, or after some wait time before serving seconds.  The pulse button only runs at speed 7, and only remains running once the button is pressed down.  Once you release your finger, the motor shuts off.  

Warranty?

We found this Blendtec Pro 800 blender came with a top-notch warranty also.  A 10 year, everything covered warranty.  Industry best!

Vitamix 7500 Review

The Vitamix 7500 is a truly powerful machine, and a very popular choice for in-home blenders.  This machine can blend just about anything.  But how does it compare to the Blendtec Pro 800?  This model has some adanced technology built-in to help solve a few problems that some previous generations had.  Let’s see how it stacks up.

Vitamix 7500 Performance

The Vitamix 7500 is not as powerful as the Blendtec 800 Pro, but is still high up on the chart.  While power like this might matter on an industrial level, for in-home use, they are essentially the same.  Upgrades to the cooling system on board have led to longer blades and motor, giving you more value for your money.  For those that prefer to have the best-of, we recommend the Pro 800.

Vitamix 7500 comes equipped with longer blades to give it more power

Power

The Vitamix 7500 boasts a 2.2 horsepower motor, and 1500 watts of power.  Its blades are ‘laser cut’ stainless stell, powerful enough to cut through any ingredients, no matter how tough they might be.  Thanks to another upgrade to the cooling system, the blades and motor are now longer, which gives you more chopping/cutting power for your money.  

Noise?

The Vitamix 7500 has upgraded its stealth technology as well.  It appears a common complaint of the past was the blenders made far too much noise compared to its competition.  Although the Blendtec Pro 800 is still the winner maxing out at 67 decibels, this machine has improved it’s noise production by 10 decibels compared to its previous models.   The output for the Vitamix 7500 is 88 decibels, compared to the Vitamix 5300 which has an output of 98 decibels.   

Size

The container for Vitamix 7500 is shorter and therefor can fit in most cabinet spaces - Still 64 oz.acs

The Vitamix 7500 is shorter than its predecessor, the popular Vitamix 5200 blender.  At 17.5 inches, the shorter container is nice, because it now nicely fits within cabinet spaces, easier to put away.  This is just one example of the improvements made to solve problems, as previous models required you to store the container separate from the base.  Despite the shorter container, it still houses 64 oz of whatever you blend, which makes it a great size.   

Controls / Usability

This is where it becomes clear that the winner here is the Blendtec Pro 800.  The controls consist of the following 3 items: 

 

Vitamix 7500 has 3 controls, the 10 speed variable, the pulser, and on/off switch

Pulse button:

on the left hand side, which allows you to do short spurts of blending activity.  Great for re-mixing, and anything else that cannot be blended for long periods of time.  Mixed Drinks:

Used for mixed drinks, iced coffees and milkshakes, this cycle has a slightly lengthened blend time over ‘batters’, ideal for this type of drink.

 

10 Speed Variable Control:

The 10 speed variable control on the Vitamix 7500 The 10 is a really useful feature in this blender. You can use the low speed to chop up ingredients, prepare salsa, or add texture to your soup once it has been made to the desired consistency. The low speed will also help you remove bubbles from your smoothies which were blended at high speed.  

 

Toggle Switches:

This is essentially an On/Off switch.  Use this along with the Speed Variable Controls, and blend your perfect hot soup, or smoothie.  This is the manual override, as there are no time settings built into the Vitamix 7500.  

Warranty?

The Vitamix 7500 blender comes with a 7 year warranty, which is not bad!  However, the Blendtec Pro 800 beats this with its 10 year everything covered warranty.

And the winner is...

Blendtec Pro 800

The Blendtec Pro 800 easily wins this review, blowing the competition out of the water in almost every category.  The amount of decibels it puts out was the deciding factor for us, however take a closer look at each one, and see which aspects are most important to you, before you make a decision.  

Blendtec pro 800 wins every category when compared to the vitamix 7500 blender. This is the best blender of 2020.
