No seriously…I am in love with it. Behold the object of my adoration…the Vita-Mix! I got this beauty about a year and a half ago from my parents. It was a “sorry you got cancer but now you need to heal” kinda gift. I have used this blender nearly every day since, sometimes 3-4 times a day.
The Vita-Mix is a regular blender on speed, a food processor, sorbet maker, wheat grinder, and so much more all encased in one spectacular package. It blends food at speeds up 240 MPH! They can be ordered online or purchased directly at store demonstrations throughout the country. Mine was purchased at Costco. It comes with a 64-ounce jar, 2 killer recipe books, an instructional DVD, and a manual.
The recipes books have hundreds of recipes for soups, salsas, ice cream, smoothies, dips, nut butters, and hundreds of other things. This machine is so good at blending smoothly you can put fruits and veggies in their whole form into this blender and mix it up smooth…aka leave the greens on your carrots and the seeds in your apple.
The Vita-Mix has a seven year warranty and I know one gal who has had hers for 11 years! The quality can’t be beat…I think this thing would chew through a wood block. I know many large smoothie chains use the Vita-Mix too.
I use mine every single day in some capacity. I have made hundreds of smoothies, sorbet, ice cream, soups, salsa, tomato sauce, cobbler, key lime pie filling, frosting, almond milk, Popsicle filling, and even pie crust. I don’t think I could survive without it at this point! I have found that I don’t even need a food processor anymore either. In fact I use my Vita-Mix so much that is rarely gets put away because I always need it for something! So it usually sits on my kitchen counter, right next to my dehydrator.
I don’t use mine for grinding my own wheat and flour but it can used for that too…you just might need the dry container that you can purchase separately.
The Vita-Mix is a must for any raw foodie. If you want to buy directly from Vitamix.com use code 06-002324 for free standard shipping!
