 FACTS ABOUT High POWERED BLENDERS:

If one does not digest and assimilate properly the body will not benefit from a healthier diet.

  The ICB7 is the best method for getting the Phytochemical and Antioxidants out of fruits and vegetables. 

Your body cannot digest all the phytochemicals if they are still locked inside the cell structure of your food. An apple has almost 400 different phytochemicals, but you only utilize them when they are broken out

of the cell walls with a high speed high power blender....say hello to the awesome power of ICB7 by Blendtec.

The 20 AMP 3.5 HP blender is powerful, it is 3 Plus powerful!

 

The power and speed of ICB7 gets the job done quicker resulting in minimal heat to vital nutrients during blending. The less time you spend blending, the colder and fresher the food stays. You can try any 3hp blender but you will have to blend longer and can heat the nutrients.

 

ICB7 will blend uniformly without cavitation or creating a vortex that would oxidize the food during blending. 

With ICB7, you'll never have to use a stick to push the food into the blade. Uniform blending occurs and all the food goes through the cycles meant for that smoothie.  Manually pushing the food into the blade causes food that was blended to get over blended and heated until you push the next batch in.    

 

With its 20 AMP 3.5 HP motor and its 4 inch blade, the ICB7 gives the finest grind of all. 

The finer the grind of the seeds and pulp the more your body can utilize its nutrients.

The more HP, the more pressing and grinding power that goes into your food to release the nutrients locked in the cell walls. The ICB7 can blend at least three cups of soaked sunflower seeds without adding liquid. If you put blended blueberry or raspberry seeds in a cheap low powered blender and then blended the same in our 20 AMP ICB7 blender you can see how it crushes the seeds. Give your body all the nutrients of the fruit by unlocking the benefits in the seeds: that's blending at the cellular level.  

 

ICB7 is amazingly durable and easily maintains power up to its 3.5 HP peak. 

The heavier the gauge wiring, the less it will get hot which extends the blender's life. Its huge cooling fan prevents overheating while you make heavy foods like almond butter or raw hummus. Its thermally protected motor prevents burnout and makes the ICB7 remarkably quiet despite its 4 inch blade and awesome power.

It has a life expectancy of 10 to 15 years.


  

A WORD ON WIRING

What makes the 3+HP blender last longer and have more power than the 3hp blender?  Wirings...Lets talk about windings! This is where the power comes from and the durability. The more windings in a motor the more powerful the motor will be. Cheap windings (the thousands of wires that are used with a magnant to power the blade) might produce the same power but will get hot quicker and will result in the automatic cutoff switch to come on.  Cheap windings might produce almost the power that a 3HP+ blender will produce but the motor has to work harder and the windings will burn out quicker resulting in a blender that will not last many years.  The better quality the material in the windings the longer it will last. Over time, each time you turn on the blender it puts strain on the windings especially when you turn it on full power from a cold start. This is the number one reason why one person's blender would last 3 years and you hear stories of some people with that same blender that have it for 10 to 20 years. Some people even go to the extent of keeping their blender in the fridgerator to keep it cool which actually keeps it cooler and makes the blender last longer but many will find that when its cold it attracts humidity which can dampen the motor and destroy the blender. Some people have told me that they have kept their blender outside in a sealed bag or container to extend its life. The 3+HP blender has a huge coolilng fan built in it. If you have some papers nearby the blender...you will see them fly off the counter. The fan is that powerful. That is another difference between the 3hp and 3HP+ blender. The 3hp blender maxes out at 3hp. The 3+HP blender maxes out between 3 and 4 HP.

 

A Word on Warranties

Want a blender to last longer than just the 3 year warranty period?

Surface breakdown of a gear greatly reducing the fatigue properties of the gear.

Commercial blenders have better gears than residential blenders. This is why restaruants can use them all day long without them overheating and burning out like residential. On a microscopic level you can see the difference between residential grade and commercial grade gears. This is why we DO NOT use residential grade blenders. Taking apart a blender and "turning it into a Ferrari" does void the warranty but who cares, the blender should outlast the factory parts and perform better. Our 3.5 HP blender has the best gears that we have found in any blender.

 

Batting vs Splitting (comparing 3 and 3.5 horsepowers)

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 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 blender 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. That is why it is good to get the most powerful blender you can afford because reducing the particle size and ORP happen at the same time. Blending longer does affect ORP significantly.

A 3 1/2 HP can blend to the same consistancy that a 2HP blender can do in less time therefore having a better ORP level. If you are going to blend apples, for example, it might take 7 seconds of whirlpooling in a 3HP blender and 25 seconds in a 1 or 2 HP blender to get the same consistancy. If blending apples, which don't require much torque to blend, the apples blended for less time in the 3hp or 3 1/2 HP blender will have a more desirable ORP than the apples blended in the less powerful blender. Take an ORP meter and you will see this result for yourself.

 

Oxygen Reduction Potential (ORP)

Energy is what you get from nutrients. Fresh blended strawberrys have more energy than blended frozen strawberries. Cooked strawberries or old strawberries can have less energy than even frozen.

In considering the physiological aspects of food digestion, we must consider two factors: the ease and efficiency of digestion. Ease of digestion refers to the ease with which the body handles a given food. Efficiency of digestion means how well the body system obtains its needs from a given food relative to the energy it must expend to obtain its needs. For example, the body might easily processes a smoothie in low powered blender but does not efficiently make use of its nutritive content. Another reason to buy a 3+HP blender.

 

 Nutritional Factors

The nutrient complement of the food is rated according to how well it furnishes our needs, not according only to its amount of nutrients.  Protein Adequacy. Protein sufficiency is not determined only by what the food contains. Rather it is determined by the ability of the body to digest and make use of the food's protein complement relative to our needs. Vitamin adequacy of a given food is determined by our body's ability to assimilate its needs from that food.

A 3hp or 3+hp blender will not spike your blood sugar like a juicer does since you are getting the complete nutrition from the juice and the cell wall structure of the fiber.

A blended liquid diet is much easier on my body than eating harder to digest food such as raw nuts and grains. Solid foods produce more wastes products also. A blended diet gives me little to no gas so I don't have the pressure on my arteries from bloating that I would normally get from undigested foods. My body digests almost all the foods that I blend. The 3 to 5 lbs of aerobic bacteria has also tweaked my body to its natural potential.

Take the blender questionaire then submit your answers to us.


A. Purpose
I am blending to make (check off all that apply)

smoothies

blended grains

green drinks

thick, heavy foods such as raw almond butter or raw hummus

other


B. Usage

I will blend for brief intervals of time, just for my personal use.

I am blending for brief intervals of time spread, but consistently, such as at smoothie bar or restaurant.

I am blending for long, continuous intervals of time. I may need a blender with a strong cooling fan so it doesn't quit after 2 minutes of continuous heavy usage due to overheating.

C. Time

I want to just blend to my perfection even if it takes longer to blend . Under 2hp is fine with me.

I want to blend and get the job done fast so I won't overheat the food.

I want a 3 or more horsepower blender as I need extra power to blend heavier foods. I even will use the "special blender cup" that will even enhance the torsion.

D. Oxidation
I am consuming what I blended immediately, therefore oxidation is not a factor.

I know a high speed blender will put tiny air bubbles in the juice or food and it will oxidize just like and apple turns brown after being exposed to air over time. But, I can buy a pump around $25 to suck out all the air of the container so I can store it longer.  

HUH? I will call a raw food volunteer who can explain what you mean by oxidation and how I should never buy a high speed blender without a pump.


E. Speed Settings

I just need a high/low switch.

I need an adjustable speed setting so I can get the exact speed. I care about the exact texture of the blended foods.

Why does it matter as long as it all gets blended? I will call a volunteer and ask which version would be better for me.


F. Noise
I need a blender that is quite. I do not want to wake up the kids or neighbors.

Noise doesn't matter.

G. Blender Vs. Juicer
I need a blender. I rather have a blender because I don't want to drink juice.

I want a blender because I need to eat the fiber/pulp and think it is a wasteful to throw it out.

I am clever. I will use the blender as a juicer too. I will blend up fruits and veggies and place it in the "Just Squeeze me" bag and I will manually squeeze the juice out without having to pay for a juicer.

 

H. ORP

I don't care about the ORP level of my smoothie.

I want making smoothies to be as simple and easy as possible.

I want an alarm to go off that will tell me how long to blend my smoothie to my desired ORP level.

I would like to learn more about ORP and why it is important.

We have people calling in all the time and telling us that their low powered blender will blend seeds with no problem, but you cannot tell the difference by taste or texture, or at least until they compare it with a 3+hp blender. A 3+HP blenders break down the cellular structure.... your digestive system will know the difference and you will get more benefits from your food in a 3+hp vs. a low powered blender. The difference between a cheaper low powered blender and a 3+HP blender is the ability to break down the cellular walls of the food. If you blend avocado pits or blueberries you will notice that the blended seeds are grainy in the low powered blender. In the 3+hp blender it blends it almost to the point where you don't notice anything grainy. It is very hard to drink a strawberry, blueberry, rasberry phytochemical smoothie when you have to chew the seeds or they get cought in your throat. That would turn anyone off from using their blender to make these types of smoothies . When you buy a 3+HP blender from us, we can teach you information on the raw foods diet that is not found in raw food books, others websites or from other nutrition consultants.
We will give you recipes that only a 3+HP blender can do and will show you how to make your own smoothies and make them taste good...even with non sweet vegetables, while still maintaining proper food combinations.

 

If you plan on making raw hummus, raw almond butter, raw cashew cheese, raw fudge, or any foods that you don't plan on adding water or lots of oil to you will see the magic of a 3.5 hp blender.

 

When we talk about 3HP or 3+HP we are referring to the peak horsepower. Both blenders peak at 3HP or 3+HP but when you blend, the constant HP is what we are concerned with. If one blender maxes out at 3HP but only delivers under 3HP when its blending heavy foods that might not be good. But, if a blender has 3HP and has a larger engine that can maintain a near constant 3HP or 3+HP even when blending heavy foods then that is what makes one better than another. If you are just doing smoothies the 3hp will be fine. For those that are doing the green smoothies that buy the 3hp blender I have had no complaints. I only get complaints when they try to do things in a blender that only a food proccessor can do well.

In the 3+HP blender it maintains a constant 3HP to 3+HP even when blending thick foods like almond butter or avocado pits. It is like a food processor in one.

 

   ALL BLENDERS NOT CREATED EQUAL

The variable speed control knob on the new 3+HP blender gives you infinite control during the chopping stage of creating the ultimate blended drink.

 

Since the primary objective is to minimize the high speed run time by quickly getting the whirlpool, it is necessary to first achieve a somewhat homogeneous mixture before moving to the final blending stage.  

 

By using short 2-3 second low speed chopping sessions, you are able to get a full pitcher of coarsely hand chopped fruits, nuts, vegetables and seeds sufficiently mixed for the high speed blending stage.

 

Between each of these short slow speed runs you can use the accelerator tool to push the coarse foods down close to the blades so they can me mixed.  You can add food between these runs as more room becomes available.

 

You need to add just enough water to any blended drink to enable the whirlpool to develop quickly.  The water is usually the first ingredient into the pitcher so experience will teach you how much to use based on the amount and water content of the foods you are going to blend.

 

If these preliminary steps have been successfully achieved, you will be able to smoothly run the variable control to the highest setting and with a little help from the accelerator tool get the whirlpool going.  You can then immediately switch to high speed and in about 5-10 seconds have a consistency that will be easily pulled through a straw.

 

This is the advantage of the variable speed control knob found on the 3+HP heavy duty commercial blender.

 

Email from a customer:

"I spoke both to my Mechanical Engineers and Electrical Engineers at work concerning the comparison betwee your blenders. As you may remember, we talked last week. I am a Chemical Engineer with both a Bachelors and Masters Degree.

Since you tell me that the 3+ hp blender does a better job of blending for the same "geometry" of mixer, it reduces down to the fact that the 3+ hp motor is more precisely and efficiently designed. It has better bearings and sound insulation that accounts for the much quieter operation and performance. It has more & heavier windings and designed with closer tolerances which accounts for more power especially when cold starting it. This is why there is less drag when you turn it on. It appears to have a better cooling system which leads to more efficient operation and longer life.

The bottom line is that for the close shaft and blade design, the better the motor design (including bearings and windings) and cooling system, the better the mixing and the longer the life expectancy. The motor is the heart of the blender. The healthier the motor, the healthier the blender. The 3+ hp blender is the better blender for blending heavy foods and for long durations. The 3 hp blender will do just about as good as a job as the 3+ hp blender when doing fruit and vegetable smoothies.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to test each of your blenders out. I will call you this evening.

Another email from an electrical engineer:

"I am glad to help people understand objective scientific reality. It is unfortunate that medical sciences are not as developed as the sciences of electricity and mechanics. But I have faith that the benefits of raw food will become well established. Right now I do not have time to write a "polished" article but I will do my best!Now for your question -- electrical power is measured in wattage. 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 horsepower pro model. While there may be mechanical differences affecting the efficiency of converting electrical power into mechanical power, the wattage is the starting point.  I am an electronics and mechanical engineer. I also appreciate what you communicate to be your real and personal experience from direct observation."

1. 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  

2. 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.  

3. 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 20 AMP blender better than the 3 HP Waring R model.

 

Q&A:

Can I make hot soup in my blender?
Yes, if you are willing to run the blender for 3-4 minutes to allow the friction inside the jar to create heat. Not the most efficient use of energy. A better method is to add boiling water to the jar, blend, then serve or blend. This will oxidize all the nutritients unless you pump the air out immediatly with the pump we sell.

Can I grind seeds such as flax seeds, or nuts to make nut butter?

Yes, the 3hp blender will grind seeds and nuts into powder. You may want to add additional oil to the powder to get a buttery consistency if you don't have a tamper. In the 3+HP blender you don't need to add oil so it will blend. That is what the tamper is used for. (Who wants to add oil to their nut butters? That's the downside of the the a blender  without a tamper.)

Can the the 3hp blender make flour from dry grains?

You can grind the hardest of whole wheat into a fine flour in under 50 seconds. It will also grind to a cracked flour consistency or stone ground flour consistency. They say this.. But, we feel grains are acid forming and are not good to eat. Buy a decidated grain meal for this. It is grainy like and does not make the "fine flour" you think it will make like a grain meal. That is why grain meals are made.

Why does one 3hp blender last longer than another 3hp blender?

It all has to do with heat. Super conduction type medal  can handle more power with less heat & resistance.

The cooler a blender stays (the ones that have built in fans) the longer it lasts. Different coatings variances can change the magnetic field which also has to do with heat.  The more expensive 3hp blender have harder alloy steal and thicker gauge wires ( coils on motor).  The heavier the gauge the less heat build up.

Why do some 3.5 hp blenders blend better than other 3hp blenders?
Horsepower is a matter of speed. But speed without power is not enough. That's where the Amperage comes in with a 20 AMP blender:  the potential speed is fully realized and the blender is efficient and is NEVER overheats. Also, precision bearings and gears make the blender more efficient. the more efficient the better it can transfer power. You might get the same power out of a cheaper 3hp blender in the short term but in the long term it might age, just like a new car runs better than an old one.
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.
I have a residential 3hp blender and a 2hp blender. Why don't I notice anything different?
Well, we don't sell residential 3hp blenders. We only carry the commercial blenders and we discount them to make them affordable.  Your 3hp blender probably has a large fan which  cools blender. I have learned that for residential blenders it takes away from the horsepower that goes into the food. A 3hp blender can handle thicker loads and usually won't overheat like a 2hp blender. The real power comes in when you have a 3+hp blender with more amperage and revolutions per minute than the residential versions. The extra heavy duty fan is overkill and you will rarely, if ever, utilize a large cooling fan for home use. It would be like having a commerical coffee maker when all you need is just one cup.
If you are blending to break open the cell walls and want the most power then I recommend a commercial grade 3+HP blender.
 

 

 

To receive a high rating a product must have the following characteristics:

  • Easy to Use (doesn't take too much time to use, not to complicated)
  • Power (Blender can handle loads under stress, peak hp vs constant hp)
  • Quality Materials (good wirings throughout, metals or plastics)
  • Quality Components (good motor, well constructed mechanical mechanisms, heavy duty)
To get a better feeling for what to expect from our different ratings please see the specific guidance we provide below:
Construction Quality Rating 5
Products that receive this rating are the best quality we sell. You can expect that they are well made with great quality material and an eye to detail. They should be easy to assemble and sturdy. These products use a premium selection of materials.

Construction Quality Rating 4
Products that receive this rating are very good quality. They will be easy to assemble and sturdy. These products are very close to our best products, and are often a great value. The materials and parts they use will be very good quality, however they may not be quite as good as the highest quality.

Construction Quality Rating 3
Products that receive this rating are good quality. They should assemble well and be sturdy once assembled. The materials and parts they use will be a mix of top quality and mid-low quality. A product with this rating may use premium materials in the exterior (visible) components, but the interior pieces may be inexpensive materials (i.e. plastics or particle board). These products are often a great value because they hit a sweet-spot that has a quality look and feel to the exterior without the cost of using premium materials throughout.

Construction Quality Rating 2
Products that receive this rating are considered value products. The construction on these products is OK. Do not expect these products to have a long life-time. If you have a short-term need, or are budget limited these can be a very good solution. These products are built primarily with cost in mind, as a result they can use inexpensive materials (plastics and particle board).

Construction Quality Rating 1

Products that receive this rating are our lowest quality, however they are also typically the least expensive. If you have a short-term need these can often be a good solution. Do not expect that they will last forever. There will be limitations that you should expect - these products will take some time to assemble (an hour on average) and these products will not survive a move from one home to another. Even with these products you can rest assured that they will work as advertised. We will not sell products that do not meet this minimum construction rating.

Probably the strongest blender on the market for manufacturing.

I wonder what would happen to the ORP level in a blender like this.

 

I am curious what would happen if I loaded this up with avocado pits.

Ever heard of blender powered by V8 engine?  A tank of propane supplies the flames. There is also a stick shifter to control speeds
in typical 4-speed auto configuration. If I have this at my home, I'm going to have a V8 blender party every night!

Seeded Grape Blending Test:

1HP or less: Very grainy, not smooth, fragments of grape skins still intact, pieces of whole grape, many seeds still intact

2HP to 2+HP: Slighty grainy, tiny fragments of grape skins, no pieces of whole grape, semi-smooth. Still a need to chew seeds. We did turn the blender off to avoid the grapes from getting so hot that it started steaming.

3HP Peak: Grainyness is still there but hardly noticable, not all phytochemicals unlocked, still need to chew a few seeds

3+HP: No grainyness, seeds blended to almost powderlike consistancy, almost all phytochemicals unlocked from cell walls, blends in shorter time to avoid overheating

3 1/2: At this level, the torque and speed is so strong that there is no need for a tamper when making smoothies. The same results as in a 3+HP blender but with reduced oxidation and heating due to a quicker blend time. The less time you blend the better the ORP reading.

 

 

The 2009 Blender can handle more power with less heat and resistance.
The 2009 Micron blender is more smooth and transfers power more efficiently.
It has a bigger jar and bigger base which which makes lowers cavitation.
The fan built in is so powerful that the engine doesn't overheat like the first 3hp blenders
that came on the market. It has 4 blades compared to 2 blades. Since it has 4 blades,
 the motor has to be more powerful to maintain 3hp blending power. A motor powering a container
 that has less than 4 blades ( not a crossblade), doesn't have to work so hard. Think about it...if you take a 3hp motor and put a container with 4 blades on it and then a container with 2 blades on it...which the motor needs to have more amperage and power to deliver a 3hp force to a 4 blade container. Think of it this way too... If a motor delivers a 3 peak HP force with 2 blades, do you think the peak HP will be lower if it has to drive twice as many blades, such as when using the crossblade. Based on our research, we only sell the cross blade containers.

This is the container brush for the 3 or 3.5 HP blender. This helps you get the food out that is hard to get off, such as under the blades.

Blender Construction Quality Rating
 We provide a construction quality rating for products to help give you an indication of how well a particular piece is constructed. This rating is unique to our site and is determined by us through our years of experience dealing with the products that we sell.

We realize that you make many decisions every time you make a purchase. We try and provide you with useful insights so that you can better understand what you are purchasing. Products receive a construction quality rating based on several factors. To receive a high rating a product must have the following characteristics:
  • Easy to Use (doesn't take too much time to use, not to complicated)
  • Power (Blender csn handle loads under stress, peak hp vs constant hp)
  • Quality Materials (good wirings throughout, metals or plastics)
  • Quality Components (good motor, well constructed mechanical mechanisms, heavy duty)
To get a better feeling for what to expect from our different ratings please see the specific guidance we provide below:
Products that receive this rating are the best quality we sell. You can expect that they are well made with great quality material and an eye to detail. They should be easy to assemble and sturdy. These products use a premium selection of materials.

Products that receive this rating are very good quality. They will be easy to assemble and sturdy. These products are very close to our best products, and are often a great value. The materials and parts they use will be very good quality, however they may not be quite as good as the highest quality.

Products that receive this rating are good quality. They should assemble well and be sturdy once assembled. The materials and parts they use will be a mix of top quality and mid-low quality. A product with this rating may use premium materials in the exterior (visible) components, but the interior pieces may be inexpensive materials (i.e. plastics or particle board). These products are often a great value because they hit a sweet-spot that has a quality look and feel to the exterior without the cost of using premium materials throughout.

Products that receive this rating are considered value products. The construction on these products is OK. Do not expect these products to have a long life-time. If you have a short-term need, or are budget limited these can be a very good solution. These products are built primarily with cost in mind, as a result they can use inexpensive materials (plastics and particle board).

Products that receive this rating are our lowest quality, however they are also typically the least expensive. If you have a short-term need these can often be a good solution. Do not expect that they will last forever. There will be limitations that you should expect - these products will take some time to assemble (an hour on average) and these products will not survive a move from one home to another. Even with these products you can rest assured that they will work as advertised. We will not sell products that do not meet this minimum construction rating.
