This is the blender our family uses to make smoothies, pancake batter, grind coffee, make soups, blend stuff, and make deserts. All the other brands of blenders we've used in the last decade only ever lasted about a year, then broke. Not our Vitamix. This one lasts, is made to last, and carries a SEVEN YEAR WARRANTY!
Vita-Mix CIA Professional Series Blender Package
With its 2-plus peak horsepower motor that generates blade-tip speeds up to 240 miles per hour, this versatile countertop appliance works great for blending, pureeing, chopping, juicing, grinding, and more. The blender features a laser-cut stainless-steel blade assembly that can crush through ice in seconds, container-to-base drive coupling made of durable metal-to-metal (not rubber or plastic) to ensure long-lasting high-quality performance, and variable speed control for processing at just the right speed for the task at hand. Flip the switch up to "high" for maximum speed or down to "variable" for adjusting the speed with the 1 to 10 control knob. Another switch makes it easy to turn the unit on and off. In addition, the blender's oversized 64-ounce BPA-free jar creates a powerful vortex that forces ingredients up from the blade and back down through the center to ensure thorough blending. Other highlights include a generous jar handle, a secure-fitting lid with a removable insert, and nonslip feet for stability during operation. Make everything from delicious homemade dips, pureed soups, and appetizers to creamy sauces, dressings, desserts, beverages, fruit smoothies, and more--the options are endless. An exclusive new recipe book comes included, "Recipes and Techniques from the CIA Master Chefs", which features over 20 recipes developed by the CIA's Certified Master Chefs. The blender also comes with an instructional DVD, an owner's manual, and a space-saving easel-style recipe book packed with over 300 easy-to-prepare recipes from some of the country's top professional chefs, including Joanne Weir, Michael Symon, and Hugh Carpenter. The blender measures 8-4/5 by 7-1/5 by 20 inches.
