Vitamix

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I'm wondering if any of you have a Vitamix, and could tell me if you like it and why? Also, can it make salsas and such, or does it only blend?

If anyone has the VitaPrep - I'm also interested in that. It seems to make chunky stuff AND blend.

Any thoughts?

p.s. adopting raw food diet, so need powerful blender - more than just fruit smoothies.

THANKS.

I've had a Vitamix for over a year, and I absolutely LOVE it. There are so many things you can do in it....for example, you can throw in a bunch of veggies & spices and blend it into a soup and it even warms up after a time....yet all the veggies in it are still RAW. This is the best appliance I've ever bought, and I use it more than anything else! I gagged at the price for a couple of years, but then near Christmas last year Costco had it for about $350, so I decided to get it....it's worth every penny!

Thanks. I actually ended up buying one, and I really love it too. I'm doing the raw food thing, so make almond milk out of it, and cashew cheese, and the like. I made a really good raw mole sauce the other day.

I do wonder, do you make green shakes out of it? And if so, how do you keep from too much air getting in there. If I add rough stuff to it, I find it gets really foamy.

lastly, nice puppy dog....how old? We've had an Am Staff and how have a Staffy Bull (see avitar). Yahoo for bullies!

I have had mine for awhile now (at least 5 years) and we love it.

I use it for grinding, soups, purees and smoothies.

To help combat the foamy stuff (ugh), add those things at things in stages. If you add the lighter stuff at the very last they blend in without the foamy.
