1.3HP 8-Blade Dual-Action Power Blender with Metal Drive

Sorry...nothing beats the Vitamix  / truthful1, NJ 4/7/2012
This blender does not compare to the Vitamix. You get what you pay for. While the Vitamix may cost more it is a far better product. Others may imitate, however, they do not duplicate what the vitamix offer. I purchased this item for a friend who did not want to spend monies for the Vitamix.
