It doesn't matter how much horsepower our blender has if
you don't have the amperage to power it.
1 horsepower = 745.699872 watts
How in the world can a 1500 watt blender be 3 HP?
1500 watts is not even 2 hp, not even 2+hp that
some manufacturers claim.
We have a 2400 watt, true 3.2 input horsepower blender
and we can make the claims and not lie about it.
Do the math and you will see what Phoney HP is.
or... just call me... I will be glad to tell you what is really going on.
Research on Horsepower as it pertains to blending...
Do your research on motors or call an engineer and you will see that some of the manufacturers
that make 3hp blenders sold on the market today are not truly 3hp blenders the way you might think of them as.
People believe many false beliefs just like they believe raw cashews are raw. Another example is agave nectar. It might be raw but last time I checked it came out clear out of the cactus. It does not come out brown or amber colored. Oxidation from dehydration occurs when they are trying to preserve it. So, it might be raw but it can be oxidized to the point where it doesn't matter if it is cooked or raw.
Another example is white table sugar. Only if people knew that this came from cows (bone char acts as a bleaching agent to make the sugar white; calcium from the femurs and other bones run the sugar and make it white. That is how sugar gets its white color)
Ok, back to blending 101!
If you don't believe me you can call any motor manufacturer and they can tell you how the horsepower marketing scams are meant to
deceive customers into thinking their motors are the best.
Lambamatech is the largest motor company in the world. They recently bought GS Electric Signal Motors who makes the motors for the blender we sell
and many other blender motors on the market.
Commercial Blender Scams
It upsets me when a customer calls a manufacturer and asks to buy a commercial blender and the manufacturer won't sell them one unless they have proof of a business that it will be used in, a tax ID, a business liscense, and business references. They make it almost impossible to buy a factory made commercial blender. I know the reason for this and it is easy for figure out.
Residential blenders usually have a 3 year residential warranty and commercial blenders usually have a 3 year commercial warranty also. The manufacturers tell me that residential blenders and their commercial blenders carry the same warranty. The scam is this: 1 year residential warranty is not the same as a 1 year commercial. Commercial blenders are used all day long while residential blenders are used maybe a few times a day. Based on my research, a 1 year commercial warranty is usually equivalent to a 5 to 7 year residential warranty. In other words, 1 year commercial is equal to a 5 to 7 years residential. I would never try to put a residential blender with a 3 year warranty in a smoothie bar and expect it to last for 3 years. Also, residential blenders have an automatic cut off switch that shuts down the blender if it gets too hot to prevent it from burning out or causing a fire. I believe that this cut off switch which kicks in faster on residential models than commercial models due to the absense of a high powered cooling fan prevents commercial operations from using the blender all day long ina a smoothie bar or other commercial setting. Otherwise, stores would be using the residential blenders that are cheaper and the manufactor would constantly have to replace them and lose alot of money. But, just the opposite happens when residential users buy a commercial blender. They tend to last longer than the manufacture wants them to last since they were built extra heavy duty for commercial use in the first place. They don't want the commercial blender to last residential users 15 to 25 years. They have a 3 year warranty on them since they want you to replace it every 3 to 7 years. I believe that if the manufacturers' intentions were from the heart and focused on the needs of the end users and not the "dollar" then they would sell blenders that had more lifetime and also believe that people would pay more for a better quality blender that lasts longer and that performs better. The 20 AMP blender is made without money being a factor. It is made with the highest standard in blending technology today. It is made for the people looking for the ultimate best that technology can deliver today.
One of my customers was told that theyneeded a plunger to push the almonds into the blade and that they couldn't grind almonds into flour without water to make it whirlpool. Well, this video will prove to the store that lied to them to sell them a different blender that they were WRONG
Biggest Blender Scams Revealed
As a blender enthusiast, I am on a mission to uncover all the scams the manufactures don't want you to know about their blenders.
After becoming aware that I have been lied to about the blenders that I sell on Blindguru.com, I am choosing to no longer promote them
or sell them once my stock is gone.
Lie # 1: Speed of blade.
They claim the speed is 37,000 or 45,000 or whatever they want you to believe and yes, they are good at making you believe the blender can actually go that fast. They fooled me too.
Almost everyone believes a blender can reach those speeds. Even if they are only talking about the bare motor speed and peak horsepower, they make that intentionally misleading too. It's just misleading in every way and they get you to spend your money that way.
Here is how they manipulate the facts.
Factor 1: The container
For example, 45,000 RPM blender speed is bare motor speed WITHOUT a container on it. Having a container on it slows down the peak 45,000 rpm speed almost in half.
Factor 2: Food
Then, when you put food in container it slows it down even more. The amount it slows down depends on how many amps the blender can take in.
Factor 3: AMPS
Even if its a 50 HP blender that goes a million RPM's it doesn't matter if it can't bring in the power to handle it. That's why they make 3 HP or 3.5 HP blenders with 13 amps, 15, amps, 18 amps, and 20 amps.
Factor 4: The blade
A crossblade has 2 perpendicular blades with 4 wingtips A single blade has 2 wingtips.
Having a cross blade instead of 1 blade means that twice as many blades are hitting the food therefore slowing the blade down even further. The less blades you have the faster the wingtip speed. The more blades you have on a blender the harder the motor has to work. If blending to break the cell walls of the food to the micron level I choose the single blade for the highest wing tip speed.
Factor 5: The fan
But, it gets even worse, the 45,000 or 37,000 RPM speed that they rate the motor bare motor speed at is simply that. This speed is rated WITHOUT the fan on the motor. The fan is mandatory so that the blender won't burn out or smoke within seconds of use. This is not a fair RPM measurement. Why would they test a motor without a fan and why would the consumer care what the speed of it is without a fan or the container on it. That is not practical.
Factor 6: Power supply
The power of the blender motor is tested under extreme power supply conditions (240 volts, not the 110 volts that most households have). Don't you want a motor rating based on the power supply that you will be using in your house? It doesn't matter if the motor is rated at 200,000 RPMs if you don't have the power supply to handle it.
Factor 7: Blow up speed
Here is how they get the PEAK RPM speed.
The blender that was rated 37,000 RPMs gets that rating at the explosion rate in a lab. The blender is driven to the point where at its peak bare motor speed, with no fan, no container, 240 volts, in a below freezing room in a lab, the motor blows up. They use a tachymeter to measure RPMs at the bare motor speed just before the blender explodes and sends the commutator bars shooting off the motor. If you weren't protected these commutator bars would shoot out at such a speed where it would penetrate the blender and go right through your heart.
If you want to learn more about what we have uncovered about high powered blenders please read the rest of site. If you want to see the marketing that I did based on the misinformation I was told go to my other Blender page. This website is not intended to harm the marketing of other blenders nor the sales of other stores. This is my personal diary of the information that I collect from my research on blending. I am a blending enthusiast and simply using this website as a notepad for my work. Legally, I have to say this, "My facts are based on my own research through engineers, calling up motor manufacturers, talking to manufactures of blenders, seeing lab results, and my own personal experiences. My facts are what I believe to be facts based on educated decisions I have made based on my research. What I say or my facts may or may not be 100% accurate but it is the best to my knowledge". Just in case some company wants to get mad at me for making a false claim or they don't want the public to believe an actual fact I had to type this on here for my protection.
When you know the facts it is less likely that you can be decieved.
Most smoothie bars ask for a special blade that will pump air into a smoothie so that they can use 12.5 ounces of ingredients when serving a 16 ounce smoothie. Next time you get a smoothie, let the cup sit until all the air bubbles are gone and then claim the rest of your smoothie that you were cheated. You will notice that the 16 ounce cup that was almost over flowing will now have settled in the cup and your smoothie will be missing about a half of a cup of volume.
High blender speed is detrimental if you have no control over it. The problems with high speed blenders is cavitation. If you food doesn't cycle through the blade it doesn't matter how power the blender is. With the new dual 4 inch wingtip design you don't need a stick to push the food down into the blade.. New blade designs have came out to replace the crossblade. The wing tip speed on the single blade goes so fast on the 20 amp blender that it would strip a blender motor if that container was put on a motor that was not designed for it.
Watch this video to see what we mean by cavitation and lack of control.

NOTE: A blender is not a food processor. The goal for picking out a blender is to micronize the food
to the particle level. A food processor has an RPM speed of almost a 1/10th of a blender but it has
a greater wingspan that has enormous wingtip speed. If you want to do food prep only in a blender get a food processor. If you want to do food processing and blending then get a crossbreed.
10.5 amps= 1.7 HP, not 2+php (Phony Horse Power)
Under extreme conditions it is possible to manipulate and twist and turn physics
to come up with PHP. (Remember, PHP is not the same thing as HP).
Peak (Phony) Horsepower does not equal Horsepower
The wing tip speeds that were measured were based on a commercial digital tachymeter.
OXIDATION THEORY Many companies say to use a stick to force the food into the blade. This is what they say to make other companies look bad that tell you to
add water to the smoothies. The other blenders can blend foods that you normally couldn't blend in a different blender due to the stick pushing the food into the blade. They don't mention the fact of oxidation and heat causes by lack of water coating the food at such high blending speeds.
We prefer to use water as an aqueous solution so the food is not allowed to oxidized. Water acts as a buffer that coates the food while it is blending. This is similar to putting fluids into your car so your car doesn't overheat. If we ran our car without oil we would see what happens.
Many smoothie bars often call us for special blades that will whip more oxgyen into smoothies
so they can serve less ingredients and just fill it up with a lot of air.
TEST: We blended an apple in a blender requiring a stick so it won't cavitate with no water and then blend another apple in that same blender blender but this time we added just enough water to blend the apple without a stick. We sat both smoothies on a table at room tempurature and we will let you guess which apple smoothie turned brown and oxidized the quickest..
How much has your smoothie oxidized. Next time think twice before blending it without water.
With the new 4 inch wing blade and larger based container we have no use for the older style containers with the stick to prevent cavitation.
Blender vary in power depending on the main factor, the amperage. To get a 4 inch wing blade we need at least an 18 amp. We cannot drive a 4 inch blade in a blender that is under 18 amps and have it comply to the safety standards of UL listings and NSF approval. The 20 amp Micronizer Blender requires a heavier guage cord and wiring to handle the bigger electrical loads.
The way I was told about 3hp blenders is that it is not just about having a 3hp or 3.5 hp blender and you have a good blender. There are other factors involved and there are different varieties of 3hp and 3.5 hp blenders for different uses.
I was told it's like this: 10-12 amps - Toyota (Camry) 12-13 amps (1,500 WATTS) - BMW 3 series 15 amps (1,800 WATTS)- Porsche, Mercedes 600SL, BMW 7 series 18 amps (2,000 WATTS)- Lamborghinni, Ferarri 20 amps (2,400 WATTS) - Lamborghinni, Ferarri with the torque of a Hummer (It can go as fast as a race car but the offroad or towing capacity of a Hummer)
If this blender were suddenly turned into a car it would probably look something like this
The 20 amp Micronizer Blender has a 4 inch wing tip that reaches speeds over 330 MPH, almost double the wingtip strength of the other blades that have a lower powered engine.
A 3 inch blade in a 3+ HP, 20 amp blender will reach a peak tip speed of 260 MPH.
A 2HP motor can drive its blade at nowhere near 333 MPH maxing out at 217 mph.
Wingtips at speeds of 333 MPH will pulverize almost anything it comes in contact with.
As a reference point, the level 10 setting on the 2hp or 3hp blenders under 13 amps is like the low setting on the
20 AMP Micronizer Blender.
Sure, many people will get a 3.5 hp blender with 13 amps but it has a 2 1/2 inch blade.
This blender cannot power a 4 inch blade at the 330 mph and over wingtip speeds.
No other blender in the world has 20 AMPS.
If you have used a 3HP 13 AMP blender, you can imagine what a 20 AMP can do.
The 20 AMP blender is not by HP. The company that builds these doesn't go by pHP (phony horsepower).
They don't measure the HP by taking off the fan and running it to the explosion point of the motor.
I've learned that most of the 3HP and 3.5 HP ratings are not based on "real world" blending.
The blenders in this league are not rated by Horsepower. We sell commercial 2 HP food processors that cost around $4,000...and it weighs almost 50 lbs.
The more AMPs that a blender can pull in the faster it can spin the blade and maintain that speed. If you had a 20HP blender and it only draws in 13 amps it would only be as powerful as the amperage it takes in.
Imagine the 20 AMP motor like a Lamborghinni/Hummer. If you aren't putting in good fuel then no matter how powerful the car is it will only run as good as the gasoline you put in it. Try running a high performance car on regular gasoline. Then try Plus grade. Then try Premium. You will see the difference. Even though the car is the same, the fuel sources affect the power that the car can handle. The gas to a car is like amperage to a blender.
Our custom made 20 AMP Hybrid Micronizer Blender can be made to fit any type of plug.
You can buy an adapter to use the 20 AMP blender for $25.00.
The Micro Jet
Yes, if you have a few hundred thousand dollars to invest in a
air powered jet blender that allows no heat build up due to
the cool air jets, then you might be interested in one of these.
This will blend food to the 1 micron level.
A Watt has 2 parts, Volts and Amps. Individually, they do not express power. When you say 12.5 Amps, you are merely assuming typical U.S. household voltage, which is anywhere between 110V and 120V. Volts x Amps = Watts. Electrical power is that simple. Just do the math, and you can compare apples to apples. The 3+hp blender is more noticeably powerful than the 3 peak hp. While there may be mechanical differences affecting the efficiency of converting electrical power into mechanical power, the wattage is the starting point.
Every electromagnetic device works more efficiently when cold. This is because hot wires have more resistance. Since resistive power losses are a function of current squared, more power is lost to heat in a hot wire. Motor efficiency and longevity improve with better cooling.
Quieter bearings mean that less energy is spent making noise, from friction which produces heat, and from lateral force. On a computer hard drive, this can be appreciable.
Drag is a function of mechanical resistance, not electromagnetic force (apart from inductive reverse EMF, which is not at issue here). A direct drive motor system will have less drag than a geared system. A long drive shaft will have more dynamic energy loss due to torsion tension (acts like a spring), than a short drive shaft, making the 3+ HP blender better than the less powerful blenders.
Most high powered blenders that we have owned have burned out
within a few years after the warranty period.
Now, finally, a blender has a closed loop system.
Before we relied on a thermostat to shut off the blender when it got too hot to avoid burning out the motor or that "smoke smell" that we get when we overwork the motor.
A closed loop system senses not only the tempurature but overload signals also.
The old style blenders simply turned off when it got too hot. This blender does safety checks
several times a second so it can monitor what you are blending based on what we are blending.
If we put a hammer handle in the blender in the old style blenders, the motor will start drawing in so many amps to cut through the hammer until finally the motor gets so hot that the machine turns off automatically. With the custom buttons on the new blender, the blender knows what you are blending and knows how many amps to draw.
If the hammer is stuck in the 20 AMP blender, it will sense that something is in the way and the motor will automatically stop before it gets overheated. This works just the opposite of the open loop blenders.
It's kind of like playing pinball when a ball gets stuck and the pinball machine starts moving all of its parts to find out where the ball is to push it out.
The lifetime of a blender is dependant on how hot it gets.
When we used a 13 AMP 3HP blender to do almond milk and then we do the same amount of almond milk in a 20 AMP blender, the 20 AMP blender doesn't hav to work has hard as the smaller motor.
The bigger the engine the less wear and tear on the motor each time you use it.
Also, to increase the lifetime on the containers, we want the least amount of harborage points.
The 20 AMP blender has the least amount of these points than any other blender. A harborage point are places like cracks in the blender or container that food can get in that cloggs it up, such as food getting in that crack where the blade spins. The 20 AMP blender is so easy to clean that you don't even need the red container brush. There are no harboring points in the 20 AMP container.
Almost everyone wants to know why such a powerful blender is needed.
We have taken an ORP meter and tested the electrical charge of a smoothie after it is blended.
The "life" or value of a smoothie is directly related to how long it is blended for and at what speed.
Some of the questions we receive from other blending enthusiasts
"If I blend for 2 minutes at a medium speed or I blend at the high speed of the 20 AMP Micronizer Blender for 15 seconds, which has the lowest ORP?"
"How do the cycles or using a dial play a part in oxidation of the nutrients or heating of a smoothie?"
"Should I chill my ingredients before I blend or does it matter?
"To get a desired ORP, is it better to blend a 48 ounce smoothie at once or blend twice and do 24 ounces at a time?"
Due to reasons prohibited from the manufactur that we agreed to follow, we cannot show these videos and had to take them down.
Please do research on ORP if you want to learn about it. We do discuss ORP in our tele conference.
Watch how the dual tip blade does not require a stick to move the ice around and how it compares to a 13 AMP blender with wing tips almost half the size.
The most efficient blade configuration on the market.
Optimized for a symbiotic relationship between drag and lift.
The blade is designed to decrease drag by decreasing the amount of impact of the wings (not wing tips) on the food that is being blended. The less the blade comes in contact with the food the faster the wingtips can spin. In our experience, having a cross blade (4 blades) creates excessive drag and prevents the high wingtip speeds. The more blades that touch the food the slower the blade can go. Many people think 4 blades chopping the food is better than 2 blades. The opposite is true. It takes more power from an engine to drive 4 blades that 2 blades. The goal is to control the wingtip speed and have the speed that we need to break the phytochemicals out of the cell walls. A crossblade does a good job but the dual tip blade does an excellent job. Blade Limitations Blenders have a limited amount of power that can be used to rotate the blades of such blenders in a blending medium. Generally, the blending medium includes both liquids and solids, and the purpose of a blender blade is to homogeneously mix the blending medium provided in a blender pitcher. A blender blade is configured to rotate about an axis of rotation, and normally includes two wings extending in opposite directions from a center portion. The leading edges of the wings are provided with cutting edges, and the wings are oriented at compound angles with respect to the center portion to provide the blender blade with a compound angle of attack.
As the blender blade rotates within the blending medium, the cutting edges define a cutting path, and the wings generate flow of the blending medium. Such flow can be characterized as a vortex which is used to blend the disseparate components of the blending medium together. The flow generated by the wings due to rotation of the blender blade draws the blending medium through the cutting path to homogeneously mix the blending medium, and grind any solids entrained therein using the cutting blades. For example, if the wings are twisted such that the leading edges are vertically oriented above the trailing edges, then rotation of the blender blade repeatedly draws the blending medium (including the solids) through the cutting path. As such, the rotation of the blender blade continuously draws the solids downwardly through the cutting path, and thereafter, pushes the solids upwardly along the interior surfaces of the blender pitcher. Consequently, the blending medium is homogeneously mixed because the solids are continually ground and mixed with remainder of the blending medium through rotation of the blender blade.
Because there is a limited amount of power available from commercial or household electrical receptacles, the efficiency of the blender blades is determined by the blender blades ability to generate flow to homogeneously mix the blending medium using the limited power available.
Oftentimes, the configurations of blender blades have inherent tradeoffs embodied therein. For example, to increase the amount of lift imparted on the blending medium, and increase the ability of a blender blade to draw the blending medium through the cutting path, the wings can be specially configured. As discussed above, the wings are typically oriented at compound angles with respect to the center portion to provide the blender blade with a compound angle of attack. As such, each of the wings is twisted such that its leading edge is vertically oriented above its trailing edge, and angled such that its distal end is vertically oriented above the center portion. Up to a threshold, the greater the angles of the wings, and, most importantly, the twists of the wings, the greater the amount of lift associated with the blender blade.
However, increasing lift produces a tradeoff because a greater amount of viscous resistance is generated when the twists and angles of the wings are increased. For example, a greater amount of blending medium impacts the bottom portions of the wings when the wings are twisted and angled as such. The more viscous resistance generated by impact of the blending medium on the bottom portions of the wings, the more drag which is imparted on the blender blade. Drag decreases the efficiency of the blender blade by decreasing the amount of flow generated thereby given the limited amount of power available. As such, the amount of lift generated by the blender blade is directly related to the amount of drag imparted on the blender blade, and therefore, is directly related to the amount of flow generated.
Consequently, there is a need to configure blender blades to optimize the relationship of lift and drag to efficiently generate flow. Such blender blades should have wings configured to decrease drag by decreasing the amount of impact provided by the wings on a blending medium, but, simultaneously, have dimensions which provide such blender blades with more than adequate lift.
Batting vs Splitting
This is a concept that you will learn if you compare a crossblade (4 blades) to a dual-tip blade. If you are blending with a 3hp blender at its peak, once all the food is blended to the smallest particle size that the blender can blend, if you keep blending the food after the smallest particle size the food will get in that blender, the only thing will happen is the food gets batted around instead of splitting. For example, if you blend our rasberry seeds in a low powered blender, it can split the seeds to a certain point and after that, no matter how long you keep the seeds in that low powered blender, it will not split them anymore but just act like a baseball bat and just move the seeds around. In slow motion you would just see the seeds sliding off the blades, not splitting. If you put the blended seeds from that blender into a 3hp blender then it will split the seeds even more until it gets to a certain point and then it will bat the seeds too. Then, put the seed powder into a 3 1/2 HP, 13 AMP blender with 4 blades and you will see that it can further split the powder on a micron level which is not visable to the eye but to the cellular level. A 3 1/2 HP blender will blend the seeds to the point where I can fully digest all of it. Once a blender blends to the smallest particle size it can blend...any blending over that just reduces ORP. The longer we over-blend the lower the life energy of the food. That is why it is good to get the most powerful blender you can afford because reducing the particle size and ORP change happen at the same time. Blending longer does affect ORP significantly. Once you blended in the 3.5 HP, 13 AMP blender, then put it in the 20 AMP, 2,400 watt blender the particle size can get even smaller. The wingtip speed in the 300+ MPH can break down the seeds to the particle level much more than wing tips spinning in the 200+ MPH range.
The dual-top wing blade spinning in the 300+ MHP speeds will reduce the foods to the lowest particle size.
We have tested the 20 AMP blender to the 13 AMP, 3 1/2 HP blender and the 20 AMP blender doesn't even compare to it.
It is in an entire new league. The 20 AMP blender is not compared to the entry level blenders in our demos. It would not be a fair test. It is not fair to other manufacturers to do a comparison with all the entry level 3 HP blenders and then throw in a top of the line blender that retails for 5 times the price.
The 2008 Micronizer Container
The container for the 20 amp Micronizer Blender is an irregularly shaped pentegon.
This is customized for this blender. Read this page to see why this design was
The consistancy of the food is only as good as the container. If you have the best motor in the world and it causes the food in your container to cavitate then you are going to have a problem. Control is the most important factor of making a great smoothie.
See video Clip here of cavitation of rasberry flour.
Choosing a container:
Round VS. Angular Containers
What are the differences?
The difference that the container shape causes is the way it blends. Both types can do a good job and blend what you need but it is the way you blend that matters. A cheap car can get you from point A to point B but when you need 4 wheel drive for going off roading or extra power for taking off quicker or better breaks for the rain then that is when different qualities matter.
Earthquake VS. Tornado. Which way do you want to blend?
The 20 AMP Micronizer Blender holds nearly 100 ounces which is significantly larger than the 64 ounce conatiners. Compainies that make the 64 oz. container don't recommend filling the container up to the top since it neads room for a whirlpool or vortex effect. This blender container works totally different. It is pentegonal shaped and the way it blends resembles an earthquake as the container is not roundlike like the previous generation models. You don't even need a stick to make the food blend in this blender. The container is designed for little to no cavitation.
The 5 sided container creates a lesser whirlpooling effect that pulls the food into the blade in near the middle of the blade while the 2 wingtips crush the food to the micron particle level. I do warn our blender ethusiasts that this is so powerful that you do not always need to blend at its top speeds.
This container will blend everything from grains (no need for a seperate dry goods container), ice (no need to buy a seperate ice blade), to smoothies and will make uniform desired consistencies. For those that are time sensitive and don't have a time to spend manually controlling the blender container with a stick then this container is probably the one you will enjoy using. Plus, if you own a restaurant or smoothie bar this is new container design is completely sealed when it blends and there is no need for a stick which in which the smoothie splashes out of the container and it takes time for you to clean it up. Plus, every time you put the stick down there is usually food on it that is often washed away due to time management. When you have 4 customers waiting in line you don't have time clean each stick. Years ago, I have seen smoothie bars just wash out the container and stick. It's just a waste. Now, the containers are larger and more seems to pour out of it as the smoothie is shaken out of the angular design. Every minute that is wasted in time making a smoothie adds up over the years. So does the ingredients that are thrown away due to a smaller container size that takes more time for us to clean out.
This container has the lowest cavitation rating of all blenders we have tested. Cavitation happens when a an air pocket forms the immediate area surrounding the blade.Nothing blends but air when all the food is pushed off to the side or above the blade due to a lack of control. This new container design eliminates the need for a stick to reduce caviation when doing the smoothies we do.
The way the container works more like an earthquake rather than a tornado is that the blade causes a gravitational force that puts a downward pressure on the food ingredients in the containers sides, just the opposite of whirlpool effect where it creates a vortex in the middle where the food falls into.
The geometrical shape of the container (pentegonal) shifts what would normally be a fluid flowing vortex in the center of the container which, if uncontrolled, or if the ingredients are "low dense" and "caviation prone" would cause the air pocket that we want to avoid. The goal of this container is to shift this vortex to the walls of the container which is the latest invention in containers. It takes excessive rpm speeds to shift this vortex off the normal axis of rotation, which is the center of the blender container. Finally, a container has been developed that reduces the cavitation that the old style blenders had problems with.
Wing Tip Speed Example:
Imagine the right side of these people skating in one direction and the other side of people skating the opposite direction.
The person holding hands just next to the center person would be going at 2 MPH, the person that is 3rd from the center
would be going around 6 MPH. The 4th person would be going around 10 MPH. The 5th person would then be going over 10 MPH to the point where
they couldn't hold on any longer. This is what the wing tip speed is all about. To make a good blender container, the longer the wingspan is the more the motor has to power the blade and the harder it is to increase wingtip speed. That is why when there is no container on the blender there are no wings to move and it goes very fast. If we put a 3 inch blade on our 20 AMP Accelerator Blender the wing tips would not reach 366 MPH as it does on the 4 inch wing tip blade.
A lot of people don't understand the wing tip theory no matter how much I try to explain it. I am on the phone with people giving examples and
sometimes they need a few more examples and I have no problem explaining it. I actually get a smile on my face when they finally get it and feel
proud of myself. If you watch my videos I know I might not explain things so good sometimes but I try my best!
Imagine a helicopter blade...
Although the same part of blade nearest the center of the blade where all the blades connect are going at the
same speed as the wingtips, the wingtips cover more surface area which cause more friction. Theoretically,
the wingtip is going at the same speed as the part of the blade that is closer to the center.
In a closed vaccuum these results would be different but the speed is relative to the static matter it comes in contact with
and that what creates the force that goes into your food when you blend, for example.
The picture to the right is a simulation of the wings on a blender.
Shown are the four mixing blades inside a static mixer, with the shear stress contoured on each. The coordinate plane shows velocity vectors, colored by speed or velocity magnitude. In the histogram created for each blade, the vertical axis shows the percentage area that is covered for a particular range of shear stress. For blade 1, for instance, most of the area (about 18%) is at the l west shear plotted. As you go from blade 1 to blade 4, the maximum shear increases — which is counter-intuitive. For many static mixers, there is often a critical shear stress beyond which the final emulsion can become ruined. Such analysis lets the designer know exactly where a critical shear may be reached and offers guidance for fixing the problem.
The new blade design blades also create a similar effect as when race cars follow each other.
The "wind tunnel" effect that the new designed Micronizer blade creates has let this blade exceed wingtip speeds of all other blenders on the market that we know of today.
What are the advantages of not having a tamper with a bigger jar?
The food is less likely to captivate. A cross blade (4 blades) means that less food will get into the front of blade and less whirlpool rotations. The more it whirlpools the more oxygen you get in the food but the less cavitation. A bigger container base = less cavitation. Air pockets are the last thing we want when we blend. Two blades with a larger container are good for those that don't want to use a tamper but by using the tamper we have to do some manual work but we get a better blend and the food doesn't oxidize. A square jar is more aggressive when using a single blade and not a cross blade because it can spin faster creating a stronger whirlpool that makes a tamper almost unnecessary unless you are doing things like almond butter or very thick foods.
How to add years to the life of the container on 3hp and 3HP+ blenders:
We do know trick that will prevent you from having to change the containers every year but its a hassle to do. When the blades are spinning near the 3hp power the container will try to spin too. This creates friction that will prematurely age the container. The trick is to hold the container down with your hand while you are blending. Put as much pressure as you need to hold the container down. Aside from that, we keep all of our containers in the freezer just before blending.

CUSTOM BLENDING DOWNLOADING There is no need for manual dials anymore. Why manually control the blender when the blender has a port where you can hook it up to your computer and download custom blending programs for recipes. You can customize the buttons on your blender to make the perfect smoothie every time. We even have blender enthusiasts that can consult with you to find out what you want to blend and program custom settings into your blender that gives the least cavitation and the texture that you desire without under or over blending. Blending perfection is what these coaches are known for. They are available for custom tweaking your buttons on your blender. You can also get the 20 amp blender with preset buttons for smoothies, ice creams, juices, and many other settings. The Micronizer Blender comes in 2 models...preset versions and blank versions that you have to program from your computer.
You can choose to make your own buttons, have factory set buttons, or get custom buttons.
An example of a request from a customer that would require expertise and a few hours of trial and error...
I am blending a green smoothie with rasberry seeds and avocado pits and I want to add as little water possible to get the speed to where the wingtips break open the cell walls of the food to the micron level but I want to blend for as little time as possible and have the coldest possible smoothie with the least amount heat or oxygen generated and I want to pack in as much food as possible with as little bulk as possible since I get full easily and want to maximize the value of nutrition from my smoothie. How much of each vegetable do I need to add to get the greatest variety of variety of phytochemicals but not too much of any particular kind. I also want a viscosity level of 15 and don't want it watery. I want it like a thick soup. Please design me a menu button for my blender that will give me this. I would love to have someone call me to discuss this.
There is an equilibrium point where you don't blend long enough and that's not optimal and there's a point where you over-blend and that can oxidize or heat your food. It does take experience, skill, and knowledge to custom tweak recipes to perfection. You can custom make your own menu buttons or have custom made ones for you or have menu buttons that are the most popular for the living foods lifestyle. The ones that are on there are the buttons that most people use anyway unless you are doing something out of the ordinary or have a very odd request. 99% of the people get the blender with the pre-programmed buttons.

Stage 2 To perform Super-Homeopathy on smoothies Use a high powered blender for this stage.
Stage 3 Is the Cell Material Extraction
Charging capsules are sold from a seperate company. I do not stock or sell these. There may be a wait list as these are made to order.
$695 is the price for 8 charging capsules. This price does not include the container. These are very expensive but are worth the wait if you have to wait for them.
Not everyone can afford the best blender, so after all the debating on weather we should carry blenders that we don't really recommend, we know
there will be people who don't need the best or they have a temporary situation in the present time that does not enable them to get the most expensive. Very few people can afford the best blender and we can only get a limited supply of them each time we order since they are custom made for us. These are not the factory standard blenders you can just order right off the shelf. They have been modified to fit the power supply of modern households.
We also carry the Waring Extreme Series and the Dual Tip Blender and the Vita Prep 3 by Vitamix.
We can get all of their models. We give dealer co-op cost to co-op members.
We cannot publish these prices but you can email us and we will give you our price sheet.
We do have demo models of these blenders.
The Dual Tip blender is another favorite of ours for doing smoothies but it is the entry level to the 3HP series.
There are pros and cons to each blender and the pros to one person might be cons to the next.
One person might only want to do smoothies but the other person might want to focus more on food prep such as hummus and nut butters.
We are authorized dealers for the blenders we sell.
If you are doing foods that would normally be made in a food processor I would recommend the Waring 3.5 HP blenders. If you are blending to break the cell walls of your food to the micron level then the double tip blade on the 13 AMP blender is recommended. Remember, it's the wing tip that breaks the food up. The blenders with 4 blades are slower than the dual tip blades. If you are blending to make things as hummus or almond butter, then you might want a food processor. I would rather have a blender that does an excellent job on smoothies and a food processor that does an excellent job on food preparation than a multipurpose blender that does just a good job on both. If you need a machine for food prep I will give you a great price on one if you need one.

Different blenders serve diferent purposes.
Purchasing a blender should be done with intent, not circumstance.
Some blenders serve the purpose of making smoothies only and some require
water to make the smoothies whirlpool. Some blenders have a lot of power
on the low settings for making heavy foods but don't maintain high constant speeds.
Some maintain more of its peak constant speed if the load is light but if you
put a large load in it then the speed drops significantly. We ask people to take our quiz on our
Blender Page if you want our recommendation.
When looking for a blender, the most important thing to look for is AMPS, then WATTS, then HORSEPOWER.
You can get a 3 or 3.5 HP blender ranging from 12.5 amps all the way to 20 amps. Entry level 3hp blenders have 13 amps to 15 amps and models that have over 18 amps can power the longer wingblades. You can have a 50 HP blender but if it's only able to deliver 13 amps then it will never utilize the horsepower that it can deliver. A blender is only as powerful as the power that it can take in.
An extreme example was when I plugged my 13 amp 3.5 hp blender into my adapter in my cigarette lighter in my car. Yes, the blender did work when I turned it on but the power generated only spun the blades at a speed where I could stop the blades with a napkin. That was my own personal experience along with all the research I have done.
Question: If I said I have a 2hp blender and a 3hp blender that both peaked at 37,000 rpms...which one would you want?
The truth is that both blenders can reach teh same motor speed when there is no food or fan on it. This is where I was scammed.
If I had a 2hp and 3hp blender side by side and blended almond butter, I could make the 2hp blender reach a higher wing tip speed than the 3hp if I took the fan off but the motor would burn up before I could even finish making the almond butter or the automatic cut off swtich would turn on due to the overheating of the motor. Without a fan the blender could only last a few seconds before the blender burned up if it didn't automatically turn off.
The reason the 3hp or 3.5 hp blenders with 15 amps or lower only have a 3 inch wing span is because if it had the next size up (the 4 inch wing blade),it would overload the engine and it would start smoking and then burn up. A 4 inch wing blade would draw too many amps into the motor and if there were no cut off switch to stop it from overheating it could cause a fire. Putting a larger blade on a lower powered blender that can't handle it is like cheating the system. It would not be UL listed or NSF approved. An example would be like putting a food processor blade (over 4 inch wingspan) on a blender and you would see that it wouldn't work. This is why food processors spin at much lower rpms but due to the longer wingspan it can generate huge wingtip speed.
Precision Blending Intelligence
Just like the dehydrator that we sell that does tempurature checks every 6 seconds to maintain a non varying tempurature to get the exact tempuratures you want, this blender has artificial intelligence that maintains your desired peak horsepower than you choose.
For example, if you want the wingtips to spin at a certain RPM speed when doing chuncky vegetable tomato soup if you have two cups in it or you want the blender to spin at that same RPM setting if you fill it the container with the soup to over 64 ounces, the microchip will tell the blender to maintain that requested RPM speed without you having to turn a knob like on the older models. On the older models if you put 2 cups of soup in the container you could, for example, turn it on level 4. But, if you put 64 ounces of soup in it you might have to turn the dial up to level 10 or even turn it on maximum power. The presets have programs where it will tell the motor to maintain a constant peak speed no matter how much food you have in the container. It's like the difference between an automatic car and driving with a stick shift.
Use less power and no more power than you need with a chip!
The microchip will only draw enough amperage to handle the task at hand and this reduces the unnecessary wear and tear on the motor. For example, you wouldn't drive in 3rd gear if you didn't need to would you? Then why blend with unnecessary power to perform the same task?
Note: When a blender doesn't have a microchip like the one we use it puts excessive stress on the engine which causes it to burn out or age prematurely.
Once you have minimized the need to manually operate the blender each time and until you know what it takes to make a perfect consistancy then this is when might enjoy making your own programs for the memory chip inside the blender.
Closed Loop System
The 20 AMP Micronizer blender has a closed loop system which the microprocessor, or the "brain" in the blender, knows what the blender is doing at every second when it is blending and is constantly monitoring and adjusting the amount of power it delevers to the container.
The memory chip now makes the dial on the old style blenders obsolete.
Also, the stick blender that we refer to on the website is this on one.
We no longer need these sticks to push smoothies into the blade.
Comments from dealers who we have sent samples...
The 20 AMP Micronizer blender has now set the bar for commercial blenders.
The 20 AMP blender makes all other commercial blenders look like tinker toys!
I thought this blender was going to short out my power supply.
This is not a blender, it's a chainsaw.
Are you sure these are legal to have?
In a less powerful blender, not matter how long we blend we can't micronize the food to the particle level.
It is the speed of the wing tips that do the job of breaking the food to the micron level. Depending on the power of the blender,
once the food gets to a size that it just slides off the wingtips it cannot split any further. If we want the foods split further then we will have
to get a faster wingtip speed, not just blend longer. The longer we blend the more the food can oxidize. We choose the fastest wingtip speed
and our goal is to blend as quickly as possible.
Try a Micronizer Blender for a week and you will see why this blender performs better than any other blender.
Co-op members can try the 20 AMP blender for 1 week and less than 30 cycles. Don't like it. Just return it. Their are plenty of people
waiting for a used one!
Read what people have emailed us about this blender...
"I really just wanted a juicer until I saw your website and Youtube videos. I really love my blender and so do all of my friends that come over to make their smoothies".
"I was all set not to like it. I thought it would blend like my current 3 hp blender. Boy, was I wrong. This blender sets the new standard in blending. I call it The Beast".
"I've been researching 3 horsepower blenders and comparing them for a while now. I received the 20 AMP blender the other day. You should not do demos comparing it to other blenders. It is in a league of its own.
It is not fair to compare it to the 2 or 3 horsepower blenders because you know this one will win".
"I just received your blender and used it for the first time doing a green smoothie. I now see what you were talking about from all the info on your website. My friend is going to get one after she returns hers back to Costco. I wish I had known about your blender before it was too late to return my blender there".
"This is the blender that people will point to years from now when they talk about what changed in blending".
"I would consider it even at this price, which is beyond what I was willing to pay for a blender. This is the most advanced blender that power can supply in a home. Thank you for taking the time to guide me".
"I bought this 20 amp. blender and it performed as expected. It is expensive without being stratospheric. I wanted the most power a blender could supply and I now have it".
