VItamix Review - Learn why the Vitamix 5200 is the best blender.
There are so many blenders out there to choose from ranging in price from $20 to over $600. At over $400, this begs the question, why choose to buy a Vitamix 5200? Basically, these are not the blenders your mom grew up with. You are getting A LOT more from this purchase than you would from a less expensive blender purchase. Read on to learn why.
This blender is more powerful than most home appliances you will ever own. This baby runs at more than 2 horsepower and spins at speeds up to 240 mph. There is truly no blending task that you can not perform with this power. It also has a variable speed control allowing for complete control to accomplish what you need.
Some things you can do with a Vitamix 5200 is: make smoothies, crush ice, blend grains, make hot soup, create frozen desserts, chop vegetables, make salsa, create your own nut milks and butters, and the list goes on. These are not just wild claims from the manufacturer, I have personally made all of these things many times in my Vitamix.
Many Options to Choose From
Upon ordering your blender from Vitamix, you have sever options to choose from. They come in 5 different colors to match any kitchen decor. You also have an option for the size container you want with your blender, the standard 64 oz or the compact 48 oz. Depending upon your intended use, you have a chose among several packages to fit your needs. The Vitamix 5200 Super which comes with the smaller dry grains container. The Vitamix 5200 Deluxe which comes with the small dry grains container as well as the 32 oz all purpose container along with additional goodies such as spatulas, cutting boards and more.
Everything You Need
Every Vitamix 5200 comes with a wonderful and very useful recipe book as well as a DVD of examples and clear instructions on how to get the most out of your purchase. Also included is a tamper/plunger that fits into the container allowing you to push food into the spinning blades for more efficient blending.
Easy to Use
There really isn't a simpler blender to use. The controls consist of a high low switch and a variable speed dial. There's not much more to say it is so easy!
You are spending a pretty penny when you buy one of these so it is important to know you can count on it to deliver. The Vitamix 5200 comes with a 7-year complete warranty. That's right, if anything at all goes wrong for seven years after your purchase, the company will fix or replace it for free. In a world full of limited 90 day warranties that is a breath of fresh air.
Not much negative about this product. First you will need to get over the price you will pay. They are also very big and heavy compared to most blenders. And make no mistake, when you run these powerful blenders, they are loud! Not too loud to be of great concern but be prepared as you won't be having a conversation when it's running.
If you are serious about health and about making wonderful creations in your kitchen you can not go wrong with a Vitamix. The very few negatives are completely overshadowed by the incredible benefits and support you gain. If you can afford it - there is no question that it is worth every penny.
But as you saw in my review, I don't recommend it.
