Before You Buy a High Speed Blender… Read These Important FAQS!

You Will Be Glad You Read This Article!

Buying a High powered blender is not always an easy choice .Sometimes it can be confusing and even difficult to figure out which Blender is correct for you. Additionally, the question of quality often times can be way beyond the  understanding of the average consumer .Here we will attempt to answer the basic question of Quality in a high speed blender in relatively simple terms.

When trying to understand the basic characteristics which come together to form the quality of a High speed blender, there are several points which should be considered.

Let us begin by saying that there are really only two fundamental attributes which will determine the quality of a High speed blender, those two attributes we will refer to as Power and Durability.

The More Powerful motor will usually be able to deliver a more considerable degree of productivity in a considerably less amount of time, and will usually also be able to effortlessly pulverize whatever is in its path.


It’s logical and in accordance to the laws of physics. A Higher power motor  will usually yield higher rotations per minute (RPM),transfer that RPM to the blender blades which will result in faster and more effective cutting, mixing, emulsification, and assimilation. It will also be more versatile and tolerate more of a load when compared to a blade driven by a less powerful motor.

It is important to note, here, though, that some manufacturers will claim their product to boast a mighty 3 Horse powers or even 3.5 horse Power, yet only put out 1500 or 1800 watts. How is this possible? If one is to calculate the horsepower equivalent of a 1500 watt motor, it will result in 2.01 Horse Power. What about 1800 watts? That will result in 2.41 Horsepower. Can 2.01 or 2.41 perhaps be rounded off to 3?

No it would need to be above 2.51 before one can consider rounding the number off to 3. So are they lying? No they are not lying, they are merely stating the Peak horse power as opposed to the actual running horse power. What’s the difference between peak horsepower and actual running or operational horsepower? Very simply stated, electric motors have two windings or let’s say are actually made of two motors.


One, the start winding, is to get the motor movement started. The other, the run winding, is to keep the motor running .Since starting a motor up requires a great deal more power than keeping it going does, the starter will operate for one to three seconds at the peak horsepower.

Then once it has acquired some momentum, it will disengage and set the run motor or run winding in motion to normal operational levels.


So when a high speed blender is rated for a certain amount of horsepower, one should take into account weather the rating is a reflection of its PEAK horse Power or its ACTUAL OPERATING Horsepower.

Let’s assume we are dealing with a high speed blender rated for a high wattage or a high actual operating horsepower. It’s certainly Powerful, what next? Does the power alone deem it to be of a high quality? Not necessarily.

Here, indeed, is where the next and even more important factor comes in, durability. Will it last without breaking down? And for how long? How much resistance or load can it really endure in the long term? Is it built to be the beast that it appears to be or not?


With Higher power comes the need for higher precision components.

Components which will perform at the levels of speed and power which Your high speed blender will deliver, as well as be able to endure the degree of heat which the friction caused by the higher power will produce.

In other words, Power alone is only half of the equation, the quality of components and their quality of construction will guarantee its durability, which is the other half of the equation.

The Two together, power and durability, will result in your high speed blender’s degree of quality.

Blades, fasteners, bearings, motor brushes and motor windings are just some of the mostly unseen internal components which must be carefully designed to be able to easily endure the amount of power, load, friction and heat at which the high speed blender will perform.

Higher performance requires not only stronger components, but components which are of exactly perfect compatibility .To give a simple analogy, you would not want a motorcycle to have the wheels or tires of a bicycle. A motorcycle, of course, will require much bigger and stronger tires and wheels than a bicycle. Likewise, a 2 or 3 horsepower blender will require better quality construction and components than a much slower less powerful 900 or 1000 watt powered blender.

Additionally, those components must be matched and rated perfectly for their respective horsepower or wattage. The strength, fine tuning and compatibility of the High speed blender’s components will amount to its durability. This durability coupled with its degree of power is what will ultimately determine the quality of your high speed blender. The more carefully designed and engineered, the more appropriately paired with its respective bearings, brushes, windings blades and other components, the better quality your high speed blender will be. It’s that simple!


At LA Vegan, we are proud to introduce you to 2200 watts of sheer power which is equivalent to 2.95 actual operating horse power, the highest possible operating horsepower for residential electrical outlets. Our master designers have spent countless hours engineering, testing and designing the internal components of the LA Vegan Shark to perfectly match the 2200 watts of power delivered by the Shark. 

  • We use highly specialized precision bearings which are rated for slightly higher than the maximum speed, and we use two of them to ensure ultimate durability. Our blades are made of high grade stainless steel which remain sharp for life, even when cutting at ultra-high speed.
  • Our motor windings are made of 100% pure copper and the winding thickness is rated for 3 Horse Power.
  • Where other manufacturers may try to save by using aluminum motor windings or plastic parts, our designers have insisted on using only the finest copper for the motor and the finest metallic stainless steel components for optimum durability.


When You Purchase the LA Vegan Shark You can rest assured that you have brought home power and durability at a very affordable price. We’re so sure of it that we offer an unlimited full Year fast and easy warranty!
