Opinions on Blendtec Products, Please.

I was just looking at the Blendtec site where they have three useful looking tools.  The blender is amazing, we were loaned one recently to puree food finer than anything my Kitchenaid could produce. 


I was wondering if anyone has the Blendtec grain mill or what they call the "Mix N Blend II." Does it compare to a mixer like the Bosch?


Any comments and comparisons or better recommendations would be helpful.


Thanks,


Marni

We havea blender & love it.  I'm sorry but I don't know anything about their other products.  do they have a representative that might be able to bring one to show you?  With smaller appliances it might be possible.

 Yes, the blender was outstanding!  Have you had yours long enough to know if it is durable? 


Thanks for responding!

We've had the blender for 8 years & it really gets a work out.  We use it a few times a week for smoothies, iced coffee drinks, &even more in the summer with margaritas & daquiries.

I have a Kitchen Mill and got it mainly because it was cheaper than the Nutrimill.  It works just fine, but it's very messy and not easy to store.  Then I had some extra money and decided to get a Nutrimill and never used the Kitchen Mill again.


 


As fas as milling goes:  The Blendtec Kitchen Mill does a great job - it's comparable to the Nutrimill.  I can't compare to any other mill because I've never used any.  It's a shame there isn't a place where we can go try out machines before we buy them and have to rely on written descriptions.  I found the Nutrimill to be much easier to work with and to clean.  the KM was easy to set up and pour the wheat berries into, but getting the grinder part off the base container and not getting flour everywhere is a skill that I never mastered.
