Diet and Fitness Expert, New York Times bestselling author and the man behind Hollywood’s best bodies, Harley Pasternak knows all about staying in shape. If you don’t believe me, just go ask Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, Megan Fox and Rihanna (to name a few) about it. After all, Harley is the man to whom these celebs need to express their gratitudes to when it comes to their unbelievably amazing bodies.
And just in case you’re still not convinced what an awesome human being Harley is, he teamed up with Salton to come up with something that would surely help all smoothie-loving, health-crazy people out there! (Or at least those of us who don’t have his number on speed-dial and therefore would not be able to just call him up and ask him about the best way to blend a smoothie or how to easily liquify veggies to turn into soup.)
If you’ve always had a problem with your blender cooperating with you when it comes to crushing ice for your smoothies (or frozen fruits for ice cream, yummm!), read on my friend! Cause our next giveaway might just be the answer to all your blending problems!
The Harley Pasternak Power Blender packs quite a mean punch. With a power of 30,000 RPM (2 HP, 1500 watts), 8 blade blending system that could easily blend, crush, emulsify, chop, purée and liquify whole fruits and veggies, ice, frozen fruit & nuts and can prepare hot foods, including soups and sauces in minutes, this professional-grade blender is an absolute force to be reckoned with in the blending department!
We switched out our beloved Vitamix blender to try out the Harley Pasternak Power Blender for a week. Would I notice the result?
Smoothies and Ice: Absolutely no difference in texture or smoothness of the smoothie. The Pasternak blender performed flawlessly, in the same amount of time as the Vitamix. I do wish the Pasternak blender container was wider and shorter, it was difficult to scrape out every little bit of smoothie with a rubber spatula. My current pitcher that I use for the Vitamix is the short, squat version, which makes it easier to clean. The Pasternak blender pitcher is not as sturdy as the Vitamix pitcher. But, performance-wise, they both were excellent.
Soups: I make a lot of soups, which is why I bought the Vitamix that included the hot soup function. I was surprised that the Pasternak blender could do the same. I tested a batch of soup using leftover, cold, roasted cauliflower – hoping to make a creamy, no-dairy soup. The Vitamix produced the hot, creamy soup faster than theHarley Pasternak blender, but the difference was minor, less than 30 seconds difference. I do like having a “hot soup” setting on the Vitamix (on the Pasternak blender, you just have to stop the blender, check to see if the soup is hot.)
The Harley Pasternak blender is currently being sold at Bed Bath and Beyond for $249 (and if you sign up for Ebates, you’ll also get between 2%-5% cash back on your Bed Bath and Beyond purchase.) This is a huge savings from the Vitamix at $699. If you’re on a budget, and still looking for a high-performance blender, give this Harley Pasternak blender a try. At 30,000 RPM with a 2 HP, a 1500 watt motor and an 8 blade blending system, you can’t go wrong!
