There are blenders and then there are BLenDERs…
The Vitamix Total Nutrition Centre helps you be creative in the kitchen, bringing your overall nutrition to a higher level…in a matter of minutes.
I have owned one for 9 years and it has never failed to help me be creative in making everything from nutmilks to soups, sauces and spreads. In fact I’m still learning something new about this workhorse every day.
Vitamix Blender Features;
- 64 oz container for large quantities
- Variable speed control from 1-10
- 7-year full warranty on parts, returns and shipping
- Aircraft-grade blades tough enough to grind even flaxseeds
- Cool running motor – consistent temperature maintains the enzymes in ingredients
- Angled sides of container – designed to create a vortex for the ingredients to be smoothly blended by the blades.
How To Use It
Simply place the 64oz container onto the motor (which should be placed on a flat dry surface). Then put your ingredients into the container. Put the black lid on the top, pressing down firmly to secure it. Then place the small transparent inner lid into the centre of the black lid and twist clockwise once.
There is a tamper supplied with the blender and this is used to stir ingredients until smooth. The tamper should not be placed near the blades while the machine is on to avoid damaging it like I did once!! Fortunately, this happened during the warranty time, so it was fixed and has been working as good as new since then.
What I Do Not Like About This Blender
The Vitamix is an impressive workhorse, the only downside seeming to be the price, which at £475, was very costly for me. I paid for it in 2 instalments and received it once the balance was completed.
Also, the container seems to be designed for people who are 1.64 metres and taller, as it requires a long reach of arm to attach or lift off the lid or use the tamper to stir ingredients.
What I Like About This Blender
The good thing is that this particular brand of blender has outlasted all 4 blenders of another make I had, so in the long run it looks as if you could actually save money.
It was only when I had delayed buying my spare juicer parts that I realised how versatile my blender could be. There is a 7 year warranty with this blender and all of the Vitamix series of blender, except the refurbished ones.
So, if you want to save time on preparing food for your family, the Vitamix Total Nutrition Centre could well turn out to be one of the best items you buy for your kitchen.
