One of the best gifts I received this year is my Vitamix blender (thank you Mom and Dad). I wanted to take a few minutes to share with you what I love about my newest obsession.
Something that sets the Vitamix apart from other blenders is the variable, automatic speeds. The mixer starts low to break up large chunks and then automatically increases speed as the larger pieces break down to truly liquify. This means no unexpected chunks, but instead a smooth, evenly blended consistency. I also love that there is a smoothie setting that adjusts for ice.
Since getting my Vitamix, I hardly ever use my food processor anymore. I am using the Vitamix for sauces, dressings, smoothies and even salsa. This blender is super easy to clean, it is dishwasher safe, however I most often use the spray setting on my sink with hot water and dish soap. For stuck on things like peanut butter, I put warm water and dish soap into the blender, run it and then rinse.
If you are in the market for a new blender, I highly recommend the Vitamix.
