From a consumer standpoint, a refurbished high performance blender, such as the Blendtec blender series, and other competitors in the $500 price club, appears at first to be a nice deal. There are however several points of views to look at as to why companies could have refurbished blenders in stock, why they are offering them, and who would return them - in what quantity - and why?
To the most part, these factories over-sell and under-deliver unfortunately to the dissatisfaction of the many customers who return their expensive blenders to the factory directly or through the retailer. The factory then goes over the blender and cleans it up and puts a new unused jar with a new recipe book into a new box and then offers the blender for sale as refurbished. This is one most plausible theory.
Why would a customer not be happy or satisfied with an expensive high performance blending machine? This is one possibility that has been found at Costco and at Sams Club. The consumer sees and tastes a fine magical smoothie during a demo show. The blender demonstrator, well experienced and highly trained, shows off fancy tricks and concoctions that leave the consumer at a jaw-dropping awe. Once at home with the new shiny toy, duplicating the smoothie is some other foreign story and the remorse sets in. And the cycle of return begins.
What is wrong with that picture? Yep. We like to educate our customers about gimmick purchases. No, a blender does not heat soup with an electric heating element (it heats soup with the blade unit that turns into a heating element because of friction). No you don't need a dedicated button to crush ice, make peanut butter or almond butter. A yes, you are paying at $ 400 to $500 already way too much for a 3 horsepower high performance blender when you can get the same thing in brand new for half the price. Look at the OMNI Blender for example. Half the price?
Still be aware of the many crappy not so well built and under-performing blending machines. Some totally copy the Vitamix, Blendtec blenders, and the OMNI blender straight out. Ninja, Nutri Bullet, the Health Master, all are inferior to the big and powerful blenders, the name of the game. We have sold many different blenders and have gone away from it and now are just focusing on the OMNI Blender. The JTC OMNIBLEND blender is the best blender bang for the buck because of its quality, power, warranty, and low competitive price.
We have been in business selling blenders since 2007. Ever since, having carried many different high quality high powered blending machines, we have wondered why we can't sell refurbished blenders? The simple answer is: Hardly ever anyone returns the blender. Why do you think that is? We leave it by that because that fact and question is already a good enough answer in itself. And why do you want a refurbished blender when you can get a brand new OMNI Blender for the same price as other used ones? Do you want the chance to have someone else' hair in your smoothie?
If we had refurbished blenders available, they would cost $225 including shipping and would be cleaned up, coming with a new jar and blade, tamper, and new recipe book, all in a new box and full 7 year standard warranty; that is if enough customers would return theirs. But they don't. Customers have the opportunity to purchase the OMNI 3 hp smoothie blender and review it for 30 days and take advantage of our return policy should they wish to return it within that time frame.
I order to reduce the likelihood of a consumer to return a blender we focus on education of our blender, what it does, how it performs, and how to make smoothies, in the front-end before they are buying their high powered blender. A refurbished blender could theoretically also be returned, it just has never happened.

Brightly colored fruits and vegetables make delicious smoothies and also contribute to healthy eyes. Vitamins in these raw foods can protect against such conditions as night blindness, eye infections, and degenerative eye diseases. Although supplements are plentiful and widely marketed, health professionals stress the importance of a good diet. Making raw smoothies with your high performance blender is one way to give your diet a boost while taking care of your vision.
Seeing Better with Vitamin A
Children and pregnant and lactating women who have a vitamin A deficiency are at a risk for blindness. In fact, night blindness is the first symptom of an eye disease that may be linked to insufficient vitamin A in the diet. This vitamin nourishes cells in the retina that are responsible for creating nerve impulses triggered by light. Vitamin A also helps to relieve dry eyes and can guard against glaucoma. Look for yellow, orange, red and green vegetables and fruits for good sources of vitamin A. Examples include: spinach, pumpkin, kale, collard greens, cantaloupe, and apricot. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble nutrient and will build up in the body. It is important to get enough, but not to get too much of this vitamin. The recommended daily intake for girls who are more than 10 years of age and women is 800 mcg; boys older than 10 and men should take 1,000 mcg a day.
Vitamin D Lowers Risks
Vitamin D in sufficient amounts lowers the risk of eye infections as well as protecting overall immunity and helping you maintain good vision. Most recently, studies published in leading ophthalmology journals show a link between vitamin D deficiency and an increased risk of macular degeneration, a progressive disease resulting in blindness. Fortified juices, daily milk and almond milk are good sources of vitamin D and can easily be used in your smoothies and sauces. Daily requirements of this fat-soluble vitamin vary by age. Those below age 50 should consume 200 IU, men and women between 51 and 70 need 400 IU, and those older than 70 require 600 IU.
Vitamin E and Your Immunity
Vitamin E is an antioxidant and can be found in sweet potatoes and nuts, as well as vitamin-fortified cereals and peanut butter. It helps the immune system and plays a role in reducing the risk of blindness in later years. Foods that are good sources of vitamin E include kiwi, avocado, peach, pumpkin, and papaya. All can be used found in soup, smoothie or sauce recipes. Vitamin E, which is also a fat-soluble vitamin, must come from either supplements or diet because the body cannot manufacture it through any biological function. The recommended daily requirement for vitamin E is 22 IU for men and women. Women who are lactating need 28.5 IU every day, and children between the ages of 4 and 8 require 10.5 IU.
Vitamin C: The Other Antioxidant
Many nutritionists and medical professionals consider this vitamin a good source for making overall immunity stronger. It is also thought to improve eye health because it can protect against eye infections. Other advantages are said to include antioxidant and anticarcinogenic properties. Among the raw fruits and vegetables high in vitamin C are peas, strawberries, oranges, kale, broccoli, carrot, apricot, papaya and collard green. The recommended daily dosage of this water-soluble vitamin is 75 mg for women and 65 mg for men
Eye Support with Lutein and Zeaxanthin
Colorful vegetables contain these two important substances, which are referred to as xanthophylls. Both lutein and zeaxanthin are present at high levels in the human eye. Specifically, these compounds are found in the macula and provide an antioxidant benefits that keep the cells in the eyes healthy. Zeaxanthin can protect the photoreceptors in the eye as well as the retina and macula. Some studies *** indicate that these two substances play a larger role in reducing the incidence of macular degeneration than vitamins E or C. Studies suggest *** that adults should eat foods that contain 6 mg of lutein and zeaxanthin a day. If you are in the habit of making raw smoothies with richly colored fruits and vegetables, the changes are good that you are giving your body the right amount of vitamins and other nutrients for optimal eye health. Rather than seeking out supplements and researching to find credible manufacturers, it is far easier to make smoothies using some of the colorful fruits, vegetables along with fortified milk or juices.
