Looking for a Vitamix Dupe? These High-Performing Blenders Are Less Than $150
All the quality without the splurge!
Having a blender that can consistently churn out great smoothies and soups is a game changer in the kitchen — some can even completely change the way you prep meals. When testing high-speed blenders, we found Vitamix to be the best overall option on the market, but we know they can come with a big price tag. While we love Vitamix for serious smoothie makers, you can achieve great results from a less-expensive option. There are great blenders that also offer impressive power, customization and versatility. We've rounded up the best blenders that retail for less than $150 that will produce silky smoothies, creamy soups and more.
Psst...if you're really in the market for a Vitamix at a lower cost, we recommend looking into a certified reconditioned model, which comes with the same guarantee and warranty as other blenders on Vitamix's site.
If you're looking for the same versatility in your blender that you would get from a Vitamix, you'll love the Instant Ace blender, which doubles as a cooking blender with a heated feature for soups. Plus, this high-speed blender is perfect for making nut milks, frozen desserts and more. We recommend this blender to anyone looking for ways to get creative with their cooking in the kitchen.
If the main function you're looking for in a blender is to quickly churn out silky smoothies with ease, don't feel like you have to invest in a Vitamix to get the same quality. This smoothie blender from Ninja has pre-set functions for smoothies and enough power to blend through frozen fruit without the need to stir or shake. Plus, this blender also works for thicker creations like smoothie bowls, nut butters and frozen desserts due to the built-in tamper to scoop your food out.
Another Ninja favorite from testing, this Professional Blender has stacked blades that efficiently blended, crushed ice and pureed. It has a lot of power and is easy to clean (the blade actually pops out on the bottom to help you get to all your food and get a good clean!), making it a perfect option for anyone looking for an affordable but high-quality blender for everyday tasks.
Sometimes you're making smoothies for the whole family, while other times you want to just blend a quick breakast for yourself on-the-go. For a blender that easily transitions from large-batch to single-use, opt for the powerful NutriBullet. It comes with three size options ranging from 64- to 24-ounces, two to-go lids and 1200 watt motor base.
This blender is the most budget-friendly option on this list that still boasts seven speeds and three pre-programmed settings. It also has 1200 watts of power, a pulse feature and is dishwasher friendly. If you're looking for a solid blender for the occasional smoothie or blended soup, this is an affordable choice.
