The commercial-grade 2.2-peak horsepower quiet motor is able to blend the toughest ingredients, and the unit is able to fit under most kitchen cabinets.
Easy cleaning: With a drip of dish soap and warm water, your Vitamix machine can clean itself in 30 to 60 seconds.
I finally gave in and forked over some serious cash for this blender, when I became frustrated with the Nutri-Bullet and my very old blender that leaves huge pieces of spinach on the sides of the unit. Like most of you, I work full-time, and needed something quick and easy, for smoothies, soups, with frozen fruit, and without having to worry about performance. What I especially like about this model is the ease of settings — there is nothing to get confused about. Either you are blending or making a smoothie. That’s about it. I don’t need it to grind flax seeds because I use a handy coffee grinder that saves plenty of time.
Another selling point for me is the ease of cleaning. The Nutri-Bullet has a gasket that sits by the blade and difficult to remove and clean, and tends to get moldy and gross. The old blender was easy to clean as well, but so bulky and heavy and difficult to take apart. This Vitamix is easy to handle and cleans up in a flash.
Chopping. Grinding. Puréeing. Whole-Food Juicing.
I love to freeze bananas, strawberries, blueberries and mango. I add a handful of the frozen fruit to my vegan protein shake, and add a handful of organic spinach or kale. The Vitamix spins the mixture into a green creamy blend with no chunks in sight. Perfection! I’ve yet to make nut butters, and want to learn how to make apple butter, but its great to know that blending whole foods retain all the nutritious fiber and healthy benefits.
Wanna make soup? There are some great recipes here, and I can tell you from my own experience that this is easy-peasy. The amazing thing about this blender is that it heats up the ingredients so that the finished product is a hot, creamy soup, ready to pour into a bowl! Lunch-time hassle is a thing of the past.
Variable Speed Control adjusts the blade speed and the texture of every blend, from smooth purées to chunky salsas.
The Pulse feature gives you a quick burst of power to chop ingredients or refresh drinks. This is the key feature for me, as I am able to control the speed no matter what I want to blend. When I make soup, the speed is a bit slower to chop and grind the vegetables, and when I blend a smoothie, the speed is a bit faster to chop up frozen fruit or leafy kale.
Here’s one of my favorite recipes:
• One serving of Vega One Plant-Based Protein Powder
• Rice milk, unsweetened oat milk or water
• Handful of organic frozen berries or one frozen banana
• Tablespoon of organic ground flax seeds
• Handful of organic fresh spinach or kale or any leafy greens
Blend until smooth. Delicious!
This Vitamix is a life-saver for me, and I suspect it will be for you, too. I never thought I would spend this kind of money on a blender, but what I save in trips to the local health food store, going to the juice bar and eating out, makes it worth the initial expense.
