Everyone is talking about the new Vitamix Aspire package
Whenever a new Vitamix package is advertised we tend to be the first place shoppers look for answers and advice. With The Shopping Channel in Canada promoting the Vitamix Aspire with 48oz Jar we have been receiving a lot of questions about it. This quick review attempts to answer the most popular questions we have been receiving.
The Vitamix Aspire is a recently developed model specific for the Canadian market through the Shopping Channel. It is also available direct through the Vitamix.com store. As is always the case with Vitamix, this blender delivers exceptional power and value for completing all your healthy kitchen tasks. The blender itself is very similar to the Total Nutrition Center. The blending power and performance is the same but the package contents and warranty differ.
The most exciting thing about the Vitamix Aspire is that it is the first package offered to include the Vitamix 48 oz. compact container for Canadian customers. As with every Vitamix, a tamper as well as Manual with Getting Started Guide and DVD comes in the box. The unique bonuses included is the new bilingual Recipes to Inspire cookbook in both English and Canadian French and the 101 Blender Drinks book.
A major difference between the Total Nutrition Center (TNC) and the Vitamix Aspire is the warranty. While every TNC comes with a 7-year full use warranty, the Vitamix Aspire has only a 5-year full use warranty. This is common among models that are not sold exclusively direct from Vitamix.
The Bottom Line:
Without a doubt, purchasing a Vitamix Aspire is a great decision. At this time it is only available in the color Black with the compact container but it is also the only Canadian Vitamix package available with the 48 oz./1.4 L short container.
For those that value a longer warranty, for the same price you can purchase a new Total Nutrition Center with the large container and receive the full 7-year warranty. Purchasing a TNC package also allows for a choice in color among black, white, red and brushed stainless as well as the option to add a small 32 oz./0.9 L container as well as a dry-grains container for a savings.
