When you look at the cost of the Vitamix blender, you may think it’s a crazy purchase. But hear me out before dismissing it.
A Vitamix is anything but a blender. Yes, it is in fact a blender in both appearance and function, but it is so much more.
A quick rundown of the things Vitamix claims this machine can do:
Blend smoothies and juices that are perfectly smooth and creamy, without pulp chunks or fibers.
Make velvety smooth soups and sauces in no time. Not just creamy soups, but HOT soups at that.
Make ice cream in minutes. Actual frozen ice cream, no ice cream maker required.
Grind grains into flours.
Chop veggies such as onions and tomatoes.
Make breadcrumbs in literally seconds.
Grates cheese with ease.
Okay, now a rundown of what the Vitamix can actually do:
All of those things, plus more. I’ve made waffles, margaritas, pesto, bread and pastry dough. Again it is so much more than a blender.
I use this machine almost every day for something. The best part is the ease of cleaning my Vitamix, I put in a few drops of dish soap, and some hot water and blend it on high. This works great 90 percent of the time (I won’t lie, if you make bread dough or waffles or something, it will probably require cleaning by hand).
This is not an As Seen On TV machine that makes claims it can’t keep. This does every job it promises, and it does them well. There are imitations out there for a fraction of the cost, and while I haven’t owned any of them, I have read that they don’t stand up to the Vitamix. You get what you pay for as they say.
So, yes the cost is high for a blender. But make no mistake, this is no ordinary blender. It comes with a 7 year warranty, I’ve owned mine for about 11 years and it works like a charm and I’ve never had an issue.
How do you use your Vitamix?
