Healthmakers receives numerous enquiries regarding the difference in power between the Super Blenders that we sell. The Vitamix blender has always had a 2 Hp motor that in my opinion has always performed above expectations. Competitor products such as the Hi-Blend / Omniblend and Blendtec have endeavoured to outsmart Vita-Mix by manufacturing their blenders with a 3Hp motor. And since the numbers go 1,2,3, we all seem to think that 3 is bigger than 2 so it must therefore be better.
Well, Vita-Mix had obviously had enough of this, and proceeded to do some extensive testing that proved conclusively that it is much more than input horsepower to create a great performing Super Blender.
