Kitchenaid Diamond Blender better than Vitamix??
Last night while flipping through channels I caught the last few seconds of a commercial for the "Kitchenaid Diamond Blender," and saw them comparing it to a Vitamix.
Does anyone have any experience with this blender? Is it better than a Vitamix? (I tried Google-ing comparison reviews but there doesn't seem to be any.)
I'm starting to get fed up with my Vitamix because it never blends anything correctly. Things always get jammed and the stupid stick doesn't help. I end up over-saturating whatever it was I was blending, with more liquid, just to help it blend. Bah. And nothing that's on the video it comes with, like making your own peanut butter, actually works. It just chokes up until you add some kind of liquid, which goes against what they promote (it using the natural oils in the nuts to grind itself into a butter). Worst $500 ever spent.
I honestly find your post 100% hard to believe especially with the peanut butter. I've been making peanut butter in my Vitamix weekly for over a year and all you need are just peanuts. No added oils. Just when you said you have to add "some kind of liquid" I knew you were making that up. Other than extra oil who would add any other liquid to make peanut butter? "The Stupid Stick doesn't help and things always get jammed"? Just buy a Ninja because it's painfully obvious you're here to hate on the Vitamix. I am constantly reading on the web, YouTube videos and right here on Chowhound and I have yet to see even one dissatisfied Vitamix customer (except for you), especially when it comes to it's blend quality. So either you're making that whole post up or your Vitamix is defective. Also what cinched it that your post is full of BS is anyone with a Vitamix that wanted to switch it for a different brand would most likely be asking about a Blendtec, not a $150 KitchenAid blender.
