Vitamix vs Tribest Dynapro Vacuum Blender

Tribest Dynapro
Tribest Dynapro, available through Amazon, is one of the first vacuum blenders to hit the shelves in the US and Canada

If you are on the market for a high-end blender and have already done some research, you have most likely heard of Vitamix, an Ohio-based company that has been making blenders since 1921. One of newest competitors of Vitamix is the California-based company Tribest, which has gained attention for being one of the first companies to roll out a vacuum blender, a new type of blender that reduces oxidation in the blending container by pumping out the air. In this article, we compare traditional Vitamix blenders with Tribest's first vacuum blender, the Tribest Dynapro DPS-1050.


Vitamix is known for its commercial-quality blenders, but guess what: also the Tribest Dynapro has been designed to satisfy the needs of both commercial and home users. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that both the standard Vitamix blenders and the Dynapro vacuum blender liquifies all sorts of ingredients with ease, so you can make smoothies, soups and purees from almost anything. Even tricky ingredients like ice, frozen fruit and fibrous vegetables will turn into perfectly smooth textures, regardless of whether your toss them in a Vitamix or Tribest's Dynapro.

Vacuum Blending

The most obvious difference between a traditional Vitamix blender and the Dynapro is that the latter comes with a pump that can be used to create a vacuum in the blending container. One of the most important benefits of blending in a vacuum is that you don't have to worry about oxygen destroying invaluable nutrients during the blending process. In addition to the fact that vacuum blending helps protect nutrients that are easily oxidized, vacuum blending also keeps ingredients like apples and bananas from turning brown.

Temperature Control

Its vacuum pump aside, the Dynapro has another major feature that sets it apart from the classic Vitamix blenders: a thermo-ink temperature sensor that changes color from blue to white as soon as the temperature of your blend rises above 118°F (47.7°C). This is a great feature if you follow a raw food diet or simply worry about the high temperatures associated with high-speed blending. The classic Vitamix blenders do not have this feature.

Container Size

Many if not most Vitamix blenders come with a 64-ounce blending container, but also Vitamix models with smaller and larger containers are available. The Tribest Dynapro blender has a 64-ounce blending container.


Both Vitamix and Tribest pride themselves on the durability of their blenders, which is why both of them offer robust warranties on their blenders. In case of Vitamix, the standard warranties can be up to 7 years, whereas Tribest offers an industry-leading 15-year warranty on the Dynapro blender for household use, and a 3-year warranty for professional use. For details on what is covered and what is not, please contact the seller/manufacturer.

Country of Manufacture

For the most part, Vitamix blenders are made in the USA, but some components may come from overseas. The Tribest Dynapro vacuum blender, by contrast, is made in Korea.

So, What's the Conclusion?

If you're trying to make a decision between the Dynapro and a Vitamix, you will need to decide how important the Dynapro's vacuum feature and thermo-ink temperature indicator are to you. If these features are not important to you, but instead, you like products made in the USA and like to pick a blender from a wide range of different models (and sizes), you might want to get a Vitamix.

Finally, when deciding whether to go for a Vitamix or the Dynapro, you will want to compare prices between the two brands. Check out the current price for the Dynapro on Amazon, or check it out on Wayfair. Amazon is also a good place to compare prices between different Vitamix models as the online retail giant sells a wide range of different Vitamix models (see Vitamix blenders on Amazon).
