Chefman Vegetable Slicer 6-in-1 vs. Vitamix 5-Speed: Average vs. Top-Notch

Overall Verdict

The Chefman 6-in-1 is a fine blender for turning soft foods into a uniform combination. It's easy to use and reasonably simple. The included accessories are a big plus as well. There's not much personality to it both in terms of design and overall performance, but if you’re after something that works and is affordable, this blender is worth a look.

The Vitamix 5-speed is in sharp contrast with the Chefman 6-in-1. It’s pricey, heavy-duty, and packed with plenty of standout features. Its warranty is great too, as you'd probably expect of such a premium car. 

Sporting a higher-powered motor, it outperformed the Chefman 6-in-1 in blending frozen fruits, pureeing veggies, and grinding soaked nuts. Its blending wand couldn’t beat eggs, but when it came to making mayonnaise, the outcome was comparable to that of using a whisk attachment.
