My Vitamix blender kicked the bucket after about 3.5 decades, and as a budget conscious senior, couldn't afford to replace it. I spent several weeks doing extensive research. Finally came across the Tornado blender - and although it wasn't a known brand, I was convinced of the integrity of Ingo's story and product. I had to wait awhile, but it went on sale - and I snapped one up. The blender is very high quality - I know I'll have this for a long, long time.
I easily make healthy drinks and soups, and know that I'm helping myself remain healthy - my biggest joy. Thank you, Ingo!

Love my new Pro Blender! It is wonderful! 😎 Bought it on ebay, didn't know about their website. Happy I found it.
Excellent mat for kitchen purposes. Company is very fond of customers. Appreciate it.
This is a very powerful blender. I have yet to see it choke. I am very happy with this purchase and totally recommend it.
I use it every day for my drink it the best service take me go through every step ! One time my wife make the contents and the place damaged the owner send me another one only three days.
I’m recommended to my family and friends they said will order one soon.
I have owned two vintage Vitamix blenders, and I did not think anything else would ever compare.
Thank you, Ingo, for finding a way to make a comparable, amazing blender at more than half the price. I am so, SO happy with this blender, it is powerful, not too loud, and is heavy and strong enough to tackle everything I throw its way. Beyond that, the customer service and commitment of the CEO is really unexpected. They are ready to stand behind a product that they've put their heart(s) into--I recommend this blender, and company, wholeheartedly. :) !!!!

If you are on a budget or looking for an amazing Blender.. add this to your cart, check out, and enjoy!
I bought this blender recently. I use it to make milkshakes mainly. It is very good. I would recommend it.
Very strong but does not blend and mix to well. Always have to stop to stir my smoothie drink.
I'm sad to hear that you're not happy with your blender! I wish you had reached out and shared your issues with us, as I'm sure we would have found a solution to your issues.
It's seems that you're struggling to get your smoothies to 'flow' properly. Even when you're making very thick smoothies, this is usually not an issue. And even if this does occur, there's no need to stop the machine in order to stir the mixture. You can simply insert the tamper while the machine is running, and support the blending process until all ingredients flow freely.
We have several high-volume commercial customers (smoothie shops and juice bars), and they are all very happy with our blenders. Some of those commercial customers even made the switch from Vitamix to our Tornado - and they told us they they find our blender to produce even better results compared to their previous blenders.
Please reach out to us if you like, and I will try my best to help you, and hopefully turn your experience around.
I honestly care about every single customer, I really mean it, those are not just empty words!
So I hope you will reach out and allow me to help you!
Thank you again, Ingo
So far so good. The only reason I give 4 is the rubber spatula ended up very chopped when it inadvertently got too close to the blade. Otherwise works great for everything I’ve made thus far
Thank you very much for your review! I hope you didn't get hurt when you accidentally dropped the rubber spatula into the container.
I will arrange a replacement spatula for you, and we will get it shipped out to you tomorrow :)
Thank you very much again for your trust and business! You know how to reach us, should you have any issues or questions in the future.
Best wishes, Ingo
Quick note to everybody who reads this: As explained in the Owner's Manual, the only tool that should ever be used when the machine is running is the Tamper.
With the black rubber lid installed, you can safely insert the Tamper into the container in order to push thick mixtures into the blade. It's impossible for the Tamper to touch the blade.
The rubber spatula should only be used in order to remove thick mixtures (like peanut butter for example) from the walls of the container while it is removed from the motor base.
The tornado works fantastic and the customer service is even better. Definitely matches the Vitamix for less money!!
Love it!! Just what I was looking for for my morning protein shakes!!
This machine is everything I hoped it would be. It is easy to clean and very powerful
The design is very heavy duty.
I am well pleased, Ann
We love our TORNADO! It couldn’t have come at a better time. We needed a blender that wasn’t too loud and would be able to blend things so fine! It is powerful and it purées amazingly! There are no complaints here! And we also love the additional strainers it comes with! They’ve made our lives much easier!
Thank you happy customer
P.S. is there anyway to get or order the strainers.
Thank you very much for the great review! I'm very happy that you're enjoying your new blender so far! Should you ever need anything, please don't hesitate to reach out!
Yes, you can order additional Strainer Bags. Here is a link that takes you directly to the product page:
Thank you very much again! Ingo
I think it works better than a vegomatic.
We got as we want.......
I am absolutely satisfied and pleased with this purchase. I had previously used a nutri-bullet which was great for its capacity, but it eventually gave out on me. As I try a whole foods plant based diet I needed more power. The vitamix was outrageously priced, so we tried this one as it fit our budget. Its specs matched or surpassed the vitamix. This has worked great for cashew cream sauces, peanut butter, vegetable smoothies, nut and oat milks, nice cream and everything i have demanded of it. All have been exceptionally smooth. I use it a couple of times each day on a regular basis and it is working great. Since I have only had this a few months I cannot attest to how long it will last, but it is definitely sturdy and well built and I would not be surprised if it outlasted me!
I’ve owned 4 previous blenders plus 2 expensive juicers - and compared to my Tornado, the others were wimps. Its powerful engine compares to my old commercial juicer, but it's much prettier on my counter, SO much easier to clean - and I get more nutrients blending my vegs than juicing. Love my Tornado!
