My new kitchen toy: Vitamix. Worth invested!!

Since our last blender broken, we haven’t got a new one for a while. I thought I would be fine living without a blender for the rest of my life until one imposive purchase in store after watching the demo of Vitamix. LOL

Afterall, blender wasn’t a necessary tool in the kitchen though except for a couple recipes needed the blender. I thought about buying a new one but was ending up talking myself out of it all the time. Vitamix was the brand I have heard good stories from friends and families many times, but I was a little shocked by the price though. (Who pays that much for a blender? was my first thought when I heard it.)

Of course, Vitamix got the #1 in the America’s Test Kitchen blender test video:

There’s another recommended model in the video: Breville Hemisphere. It was smaller in size, and cost about half of the price of Vitamix. I then thinking about maybe get this one instead? Until I saw this video comparing the two model’s performances side by side. You can still see chunks and pieces after a while in Breville while Vitamix blends it all into juices. Pretty impressive!!

For the past couple weeks after I got this big thing in my kitchen, I have been testing different functions and recipes on the Vitamix machine. Surprisingly, it became the appliance I used the most often in the kitchen now. So far, I’m really happy with it and would definitely recommend to people who are looking for a new blender.

I have tried to make mango sorbet with just fruit and ice, no water at all. The result turned out perfect. It turns everything into very smooth sorbet in seconds.

I even used it to chop onions and carrots. The result turns out nice, too.
