Traveling the world and using nearly every kind of blender I could get my hands on has led me to conclude that the Vitamix Blender is the best out there for many reasons!
Check out this video to learn my Top 3 Tips for the Vitamix Blender to bring your cuisine to the next level!
Sure there are other blenders that are smaller, lighter, or cost less money, but in terms of getting the job done, quality and warranty, nothing compares to the Vitamix.
Before I get into the TOP 3 TIPS For the Vitamix Blender,
Here are a few reasons I LOVE the Vitamix Blender!
Their Amazing Warranty (7 years for new machines, 5 for Reconditioned) covers all shipping costs from purchasing to any warranty shipping needs if ever needed.
The 2-horsepower motor makes short work of any dish no matter how thick. From perfectly smooth sauces, smoothies, and dips to nicecream, nut butter, and even bread dough, if you are into that kind of thing.
The tamper makes it easy to achieve any texture no matter how thin or thick your sauce/smoothie/dip/nicecream is. Simply put the ingredients you want chunky in last and push into the blades with the tamper at slow speeds
The Vitamix is as strong as heck, I have burnt out numerous blenders over the years and have yet to have issues with any of the dozens of Vitamix Blenders I have used over the last 14+ years both personally and working as a high-demand raw chef.
They give back by providing the opportunity for those who love Vitamix to become affiliates and share the love, for which I proudly am one!
To My Top 3 Tips for the Vitamix Blender
- When making sauces with herbs in them wait to add the herbs till last, then pulse them in or blend them in at slow speeds with the tamper to preserve some texture. This is especially helpful with basil and cilantro to get the most flavor out of the herb. To achieve a chunky texture you can add cauliflower, broccoli, and or mushrooms to any sauce, blend at a low speed (between 3-5 on the speed dial) and use the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades. For thick and hearty stews use the same method, place an abundance of greens/herbs on top of a pre-blended sauce (up to a 50/50 ratio or more) and push into the blades at low speeds until the desired texture is reached.
** it can be very helpful to quickly pulse the blender at high speeds from time to time, especially with cilantro, to break up any long bits and free the blade in case it has gotten twirled up. (technical term)
- When making smoothies or sauces try to blend at slower speeds (between 3-5 on the speed dial) with an occasional pulse rather than at top speeds that will create a large tornado-like vortex in the smoothie. When blending at high speeds more air is pulled into the smoothie and this increases oxidization which damages nutrients and lessens the flavor to some degree.
- When making thick sauces, nicecream, nut butters, etc be sure to use the tamper vigorously, go for it as if you are a crazy psycho killer, really. Try to push the food in from every angle, against the walls of the container into the blades as fast as possible, this is much easier on the blender motor and helps to create a smoother product!
