The efficient Vitamix blender belongs to the professional line of household kitchen appliances. Powerful and highly productive, they’re even able to grind ice and nuts with ease.
You may even not like the thought of cooking or maybe you think you lack the proper skills; it all does not matter because together with the help of the Vitamix products you’ll find it easy to show off with your inner chief talent.
A mixture of ginger and garlic, peanut butter, apple mousse, pear marmalade, homemade pork sausage – all this and a lot more is within the power of compact and functional models.
Their slim design is great for tucking away in a cabinet or drawer, unlike a normal countertop blender.
The machine’s stats:
It’s got a 625-watt motor, five-speed settings, and a four-pronged blade. It also has a bell guard that reduces suction, helps to increase ingredient flow, and protects pots and pans while you work.
The cord measures five feet long and the top has a soft, comfy grip. Not too different from other top immersion blenders.
The blender has just two buttons on the front, so it can be operated with one hand. Holding the top button turns on the blender while holding the bottom button controls the speed.
Lights on top indicate the selected speed. Five speeds are available, which is plenty. The lowest speed is gentle enough to start, and the highest speed is more than normally needed.
When you need to put the blender away for the moment, it’ll automatically lower the speed of the spinning, which is quite neat. It’d hardly be a great surprise to find a blender working at full speed when it’s not required. The blender can be also split up with relative ease into two separate parts. Putting it back will also hardly be a problem.
Five setting elements can be applied with the use of the only button. On the top of the blender, there’s a light-up counter that counts up with each click of the button. This way you can see where you are along the scale.
It has a hard plastic shroud that protects the blade and makes this blender safe for nonstick cookware.
There’s no blending container included with the Vitamix Immersion Blender, which is common for handheld blenders. But it fits perfectly into wide-mouth canning jars—not to mention pots, pans, and bowls.
It’s easy to blend cooked fruits to make a tasty mostarda or a silky-smooth tomato soup.
One of the main advantages of this blender is that it can run up to four minutes (competitors’ products are only able to work for a minute). After four minutes of efficient work, it shuts down, but it can be restarted without a problem.
A blender shutting down can mean that it’s overheating, so you should check for it.
There’re a few ways of cleaning this sort of blender that are easy and quick. In many cases, quick rinsing in soapy water and washing in water will suffice to clean the blender head. If the blades are sticky, a small sponge or brush will do the job. Another option is to fill a jar halfway with water, add a drop of dish soap, and let the blender clean itself. After that, a quick rinse will finish the job.
Retailing at around $150, this is one of the more expensive hand blenders on the market. While there are a few that are more expensive, there are many, many more that are cheaper. Considering this is from a high-end brand, the high price isn’t surprising.
A long-lasting immersion blender.
The Vitamix Immersion Blender lives up to the brand’s solid reputation of producing high-quality, powerful blenders, and it’s particularly noteworthy that this hand blender is made for longer blending sessions than most of the competition.
