OmniBlend V: Introduction and Smoothie Test

This video introduces the OmniBlend V high-performance blender, also known as both the Omni V and the Omni.  The goal of the video is to help you, the consumer, in your quest to select a high-performance blender that best suits your and/or your family’s needs.  The Omni V shares several features and characteristics with other leading high-performance blenders in the market, yet is still somewhat unique in appearance, operation, and performance. It also comes in at a somewhat lower price-point than other more well-known models, which could play an important role in one’s buying decision.

In this video we highlight the key features of the blender as well as compare these features to those on the Blendtec Total Blender and Vitamix 5200. After discussing features, a performance comparison determining how well the blender makes a typical fruit smoothie is run versus the Vitamix. This test incorporates the exact same ingredients in both blenders and is performed using the highest speed setting for each.  The duration of the test is exactly 35 seconds for both blenders.  Because a tamper is included in the Vitamix 5200 package, it has been used in this test. The mixing rod that comes with the Omni V is also used.

This video has not been edited.

Both blenders produced an exceptionally smooth result with a slight edge in ingredient incorporation and texture going to the Vitamix.  No discernable difference in flavor or temperature was detected in the two smoothies.  The conclusion from this test is that though the Vitamix makes a slightly smoother product over the exact same blending duration, the OmniBlend V also produces an exceptionally smooth result, one which would likely be equally smooth if blended for a short time longer.

  1. Thanks for the videos! But does the Omniblend have variable control like the Blendtec and Vitamix? It might not be a huge deal, but like with the Vitamix I know it can spin its blade slow enough to be used as a food processor and I’m assuming that Blendtec (since it has a 1 thru 10 speed setting) can do the same. Can the Omniblend do this?

      Matt, the Omni does not have a Variable Speed dial like the Vitamix, nor does it have Speeds 1-10 like the Blendtec. It does have a Low speed setting and also a Pulse function, so it can be used for processing to a certain extent. But, similar to almost all blenders – Vitamix and Blendtec included – it will never be as practical for dicing and “clean edge” processing as will a food processor.
