The Vitamix blender (along with Blendtec in my opinion) is the best blender on the market. They both operate in much the same way but have some small differences. For example the Vitamix has a skinnier carafe which makes the blender taller. It also has a more narrow area down where the blades are. This means that sometimes you have to blend things a littler longer to completely crush and pulverize then.
That being said, it has a plunger where the Blendtec does not. Because of this plunger you don’t have to blend things long at all. I have to say I got the Vitamix as my Christmas bonus from my employer in 2007 and it’s been the best kitchen appliance I’ve ever had. I’ve made raw soups, margaritas, green smoothies, ice creams, sorbets, nut milks, salsas, raw breads and so much more.
It’s the most amazing machine ever. The plunger though is what seals the deal for me. That changes everything. I highly recommend you get one of these machines for your kitchen. If you buy through the link below you’ll get free shipping which is great.
I couldn’t live without it. I use it 2 times a day. I’ve even made fresh juice with it. All you need is a nut milk bag and you’ve got yourself a juicer as well. Blend all your veggies and strain out the pulp and you’ve get a higher quality juice than if you use a juicer.
If you’re in the fence about buying a blender or juicer, buy a blender. It makes whole foods and you can use it as a juicer with a simple nut milk bag. But if you buy a juicer, then you can only use it as such.
I can’t recommend this machine enough. Remember if you buy through the link below you get free shipping.Buy Now!
