Vitamix Review | Vitamix 5200
It is no surprise that there are so many raving 2012 Vitamix reviews by those who have decided to invest in the world's best high-speed blender. With the introduction of his first blender over 70 years ago, W.G. Barnard revolutionized the industry. Today the Vitamix 5200 is considered by many to be the best blender on the market. The Vitamix CIA Professional Series is essentially the same blender for more money.
With an abundance of options, why choose a Vitamix? These blenders are not your ordinary counter-top appliances and because of that they command a higher price. But with the larger price comes serious benefits that makes every bit of the investment worth it and this Vitamix review will show you why.
This Vitamix review covers all current 2012 models. It specifically includes the 5200, Creations, TurboBlend VS and Reconditioned Vitamix.
At the forefront of blending power and efficiency, every Vitamix delivers amazing power and incredible results. There are many tasks to complete in a kitchen and most people have several appliances to take care of them. With a Vitamix you can use your blender for most every task and eliminate the need for other appliances.
Every Vitamix review addresses power. The blender's 11.5 amp motor draws 1380 watts. Not only is the Vitamix capable of speeds up to 240 mph (37,000 RPM) it also provide slow speed blending of ~500 RPM. This slow speed and variable speed control is unique among blenders and allows for the ability to accomplish tasks such as chopping that most blenders can not.
It is with this advanced technology and engineering you can do virtually every kitchen task possible, including crushing ice, making frozen desserts, grinding flour, kneading dough, blending smoothies, creating nut butters, chopping vegetables and making hot soup!
Creating super smooth green smoothies is easy in a Vitamix 5200. We've made over a thousand gallons of green smoothie using many different blenders. No matter the ingredients we put in the Vitamix or how much, green smoothies come out super smooth.
Vita-mix blenders offer a variety of containers to match your needs. The large 64 oz. container is standard but shorter 48 oz. and 32 oz. containers are also available. Unlike any other blender made for the home, Vitamix also offers a special dry grains container specific for frequently making your own flours. This is included in the Vitamix Super package.
When it comes to peace of mind and reliability, Vitamix reviews agree, no blender can match the history and coverage of a Vita-mix. Offering the industry's best warranty, your purchase is covered for 7-Years and includes everything. Not only does each blender come with the best warranty but in most cases you can take advantage of their No Risk Guarantee and try your Vitamix Risk-Free for 30 days (more info » Vitamix Promotions).
Every review tells the same story, these blenders are made to perform big and to last a long time doing it. If anything were to "go wrong" with your Vitamix it is very easy to deal directly with the US based company to get quick results. It is not uncommon for a Vitamix to continue to perform like new after 20+ years of regular use.
In a Vitamix review, quite likely the most important aspect to look at is how easy is it to use. Not only are you getting an advanced and powerful blender but Vitamix blenders are known for how simple they are to operate and how easy they make it to learn how to get tasks done quickly and efficiently.
Every blender comes with a user manual as well as a recipe book and a DVD so you can watch how to use your Vitamix.
Every task is controlled via a switch and a dial. With the variable speed dial you have complete control over the speed and duration of blending your creations. Likely the most advantageous feature of the Vitamix is its tamper. For thick creations with limited liquid, every Vitamix blender comes with a unique tamper that fits in the container giving you the ability to safely push ingredients into the moving blade while quickly resolving cavitation. This is a great advantage if you make nut butters or frozen deserts or simple want to chop veggies.
Clean up is easy with your Vitamix. After emptying your container, simply add hot water and a little detergent and blend.
The greatest benefit to owning a Vitamix is less apparent. Most Vitamix reviews miss this point. Since the family owned company is focused on helping people create a healthy lifestyle, it is no surprise that having a Vitamix provides you with the knowledge and power to improve health and quality of life for you and your family.
Every container is BPA-free and is designed to maximize food processing tasks so that the end results is healthy. The incredible power of the Vitamix minimizes oxidation and is able to break through cell walls making the nutrition in your food more readily available for your body to use.
Each Vitamix purchase also comes with a recipe book full of incredibly delicious and healthy meals you can make in your blender. No healthy kitchen should be without one.
