Compare Reviews and Complaints Vitamix S55 Blender vs Vitamix S30 vs Turboblend

Vitamix S30
Cups are not convenient for chopping
Dinara who reviewed Vitamix S30 complained in her review that though it works well, the cups it comes with are not ideal for chopping. She wishes there was a cup that would be ideal for chopping and also scraping ingredients out. She was also annoyed by the whistle, which is quite high pitched.

Lid gets stuck
Peta who used Vitamix S30 revealed in his review that the blender’s performance is good and it can get through tough ingredients. But it shows problems like the lid getting stuck, particularly in the case of larger base. It can then be very difficult to remove and needs some use of strength. The same is the case when you have to screw the blade off the travel piece and the pitcher. Even if it is not screwed in too tight, you will struggle while getting it off.

 

Turboblend
Doesn’t work well
Katya who reviewed Turboblend complained in her review that it doesn’t work well at all and the performance is just not enough in comparison with your regular blenders. What’s annoying is that it makes a really loud noise and can be a pain to work with. According to her it has been a colossal waste of her precious money and time.

 

Only one speed
Holly who used Turboblend exposed in her review that you are told it’s a bender with two speeds; high and low. But for her the low speed was also quite high, which made things tricky when she had to make emulsions or mayonnaise at home. She now ends up using only one speed and wishes that there was another speed option with the blender. She is annoyed that she fell for false marketing of the blender and wishes she could return it.
