I have owned facilities with commercial kitchens and understand the difference between commercial quality and for "Home use kitchen products" Both my Wife and I try and follow healthy eating habits,and a quality blender is essential for us. Smoothies,Soups,etc. For the reason of trying to be "frugal" I have always purchased home style blenders,probably 4/5 different types and brands with the same results, They give up the Ghost one way or another within a yr or so.When I found the BlendTec3 reconditioned for a great price I bought. The machine arrived in described condition,not new looking,but with the familiar patina of professional use. I have no idea how much use this machine had nor do I care,the motor and electronics show a well done reconditioning ,and it works as new. we FILL the container with frozen fruit,ice,Banana ,and more,IT JUST DOES THE JOB EXTREMELY WELL.Just as it should.I expect it to last for a long,long time,just as the ones in my commercial kitchens have.By the way my Son has the big Vita mix ,he wants to trade. Aint gonna happen!
the blender is amazing, blows vitamix out of the water. this icb3 is better than the newer "The Quiet One" vitamix. also you cant beat blendtec's customer service! the design of the carafe makes all the difference i have the standard and wildside jars and they are both great. vitamix only offers push button computer controlled blenders for commercial customers, all others are manual controls and you end up over-blending. i got mine from vminnovations and it has cracks in sound enclosure and jar, but for $170 you cant beat it. able to program all 6 buttons to whatever cycles i desire.
This was the refurbished model. Although the unit was used prior, it was clean and works like new. The unit is rather large on the counter so make sure you have appropriate counter space. The removable flip down cover is great for noise control as this commercial powerhouse is pretty loud. The unit has a digital display and a high and low pulse switch. It cuts up ice with ease. The only feature missing from this blendtec that the newer home versions have is the ability to set the unit for specific times and programs for specific uses like smoothies, soup, etc. You can use this unit for all these needs, but there is no timer to turn the unit off. I give it four stars for this reason, but in a commercial setting, as this is obviously used for, those features aren't necessary.
I love the Blendtec Icb3 blender ... makes great smoothies, quickly & quietly (compared to some others) it is rather large so it handles a lot at one time .. however, I had to find a "special place" for it since I didn't have enough space for it in any of my regular sized cabinets ..
Greaet blender!!! I have the top end Blendtec and this unit seems to have more power but is much bigger and heavier. The jar showed major usage and I bought a new one. The one I received had a small leak around the bottom (around the gear).
For the price, it is an excellent buy.
