If you envy your local smoothie shops blender, then you may be interested in the domestic Blendtec Professional 800. Operating at the sound level of normal conversation, the Professional 800 is very quiet and proves that industrial-strength power doesn’t require industrial-strength noise.
The 800 has many similarities to Blendtec’s popular commercial blender, the Stealth 875 which is used in many high volume establishments. With this being said, you can expect outstanding quality especially when all Blendtec’s products are made in the United States of America and the Professional 800 has an amazing 10-year warranty.
The Professional 800 operates at a sound level that won’t interrupt any activities. This is all down to the sealed enclosure that is made of thick plastic and features advanced sound dampening and airflow technology. The sound enclosure is a great little feature with a big impact, however, don’t worry about the closure being a nuisance, as you can open and close the sound enclosure while blending.
In addition, the base of the 800 is slightly heavier than other home blenders, but Blendtec have purposely done this to help provide stability and stop the blender from moving around on the counter when in use.
The Professional 800 features an 11-speed touch slider which allows users to create the perfect consistency from just a swipe of a finger.
One of the biggest benefits of the touchscreen interface is how easy it is to clean, as there is no need to scrub around buttons. These types of control panels will be much more hygienic as they harbour less grime and bacteria than a switch set up.
With six preprogrammed custom cycles, you will be able to produce smoothies, salsa, ice cream, whole juice, hot soup, and mixed drinks.
Sometimes the preprogrammed cycles don’t blend to your preferred consistency. With just a single tap, during any blend cycle, you can add ten seconds worth of extra blending time to create your desired texture.
With a 3.8 horsepower motor, which is similar to the Designer 725, the Professional 800 will be able to blend any ingredient with ease. With the improved power, the blender’s motor will not be strained during typical use, which will result in cooler operating temperature and longer motor life.
Blendtec’s blunt blade design is purposely made to smash and liquefy ingredients, which are different from conventional sharp blender blades, which tend to cut and chop ingredients, this is how Blendtec create perfect smooth blends.
There are so many features built into the Professional 800 that you really are getting the very best. With Stealth technology, multi-speed pulse and an 11-speed touch slider, this blender is efficient but beautifully designed. The most visible feature of the 800 is sound enclosure which is great if you want a commercial like blender but without the added sound. We also enjoyed using the touch slider, as it gave us ultimate precision speed control, which is perfect if you don’t want to use the 6 pre-programmed cycles. Overall the Professional 800 is a great blender for anyone looking for commercial quality.
