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.

  1. I haven't seen the KA Diamond commercial, but I have seen one for another blender and I can't think of it's name right now. They also compare it to the Vitamix and is $200 cheaper. If I see it again, I'll post.

    1. I saw the commercial and the comparison is between Vitamix and Ninja Ultima which they say is 1/3 the price of the Vitamix.

        1. I have been looking into getting a high powered blender like the Vitamix and have been looking for the best option for me. You might find this article helpful http://www.popularmechanics.com/_mobi...

          1. I love my Vitamix. I'll give you $250 for yours so it's not a total loss
