Equipped with a 3. 5 peak horsepower motor, on paper the new Pro Line looks like a beast of blender. More than just a monster Tucked away inside the KitchenAid Pro Line Series blender is a 3. 5 peak hp electric motor, which in theory is stronger than the Blendtec Designer 725's (3. 4 hp) and Vitamix 750's (2. 2 hp) engines. According to KitchenAid though, strength is just part of this blender's story.
