The Blendtek Corporation claims they "changed the way the world blends" by introducing high-powered blenders for commercial and personal use. The company offers a variety of blenders, mixers and mills. The HP3a and the Total Blender are for personal use.
Both models can produce dough, smoothies, soups, peanut butter and ice cream. Both have a two-prong stainless steel blade and a three peak horsepower motor. Both models also have a 2-qt. square plastic jar for blending wet and dry ingredients. The HP3a has a "patented vortex jar design," while the Total Blender does not.
The Total Blender is easy to clean because you only have to remove one piece from the base and rinse it. The HP3a does not have to be disassembled for cleaning.
The Total Blender measures 7 by 8 by 15.5 inches and weighs 4.99 Kilogram. The HP3a weighs 5.9 Kilogram.
Controls and Presets
Neither blender has switches, buttons or control knobs. Both have a touchpad. The HP3a has 30 preprogrammed blend cycles. The Total Blender also has preprogrammed blending cycles, a digital touchpad and auto shutoff.
Both blenders are in the £260 range.
Warranty and Extras
Both of these Blendtec products come with a three-year warranty on the motor/base part and a one-year warranty on the container. Consumers can purchase extended warranties from the company directly. Recipe books and user guides are included with both of these blenders.
