Montel Williams Living Well Health Master vs Vitamix Review: Which Is The Best Blender To Buy?
Both Living Well Montel Williams Health Master Elite and Vitamix blenders are well known, if you are trying to make an educated decision on which one to buy, the differences, strengths and weaknesses along with where to get the best price is covered in this article to help you make a choice on which of these two products are right for you.
The exact machines which I’ll be talking about throughout this review are the Vitamix 5200 and the Montel Williams Health Master Elite and not only are they great for juicing, blending food, they can even cook it but only one is really going to change your life in the kitchen forever…
Vitamix Blender Best Price
Health Master Best Price
Money! Money! Money! Which Blender is the Cheapest?
Ok, let’s get the obvious out of the way, the price of any piece of expensive kitchen equipment is always going to be one of the deciding factors for many people.
The Health Master Elite Price is usually somewhere around the $175 mark while the Vitamix 5200 price is around three times that of the Elite. The Montel Williams blender wins hands down if you are looking for the cheapest blender of the two.
Should this really be your deciding factor however or is there more to the decision than that?
Which One Has Professional Blender Reliability?
After winning on price, the Health Master Elite looks (quite literally) a little shaky in this department. Users have complained of the unit overheating on jobs which are more intensive, and that’s early on in the products life. Smells of electrical burning and even smoke coming out of the machine have been reported.
The Vitamix 5200 has had no such complaints however. Although it may of course start to heat up too much during use, it is self cooling and has an auto safety cut off which prevents any such occurrence damaging the unit.
It’s beginning to become clear why the price difference is so big! While the Health Master Elite may be fine for lighter work it may cause you problems if you are looking for a real kitchen workhorse. Vitamix which is well known for lasting years with no problems wins hands down for reliability.

The Jury Is Out!
The Vitamix 5200 is one of the newest and reliable machines from a company that has been in the business for decades. Previous Vitamix models have been known to be passed down 2 generations, they really are that good at lasting.
The Montel Williams Living Well Health Master Elite is just a toy in comparison. If you just need it for light work, by all means save yourself the expense of buying a Vitamix. If you want to be able to do it all reliably for years to come however, the choice in the Living Well Health Master vs Vitamix Review is always going to go to the latter.
