I find the Vitamix gets my kids to eat more veggies and also has me toss less produce that might have otherwise gone bad. How? My kids have smoothies almost every day (made of whatever fruit we have on hand plus a handful of carrots and a bit of spinach or kale plus ice.) They love them and sometimes at dinner will ask "Can we have our vegetables in a smoothie?" In terms of waste, fruit that might be on the cusp of going bad, I simply throw in the freezer and then use later in smoothies.
It also saves so much time with cooking -- instead of dicing an onion, I cut it in half and put it in the Vitamix for 10 seconds and it's done. Need a quick and easy meal -- a can of tomatoes, a can of black beans, a clove of garlic and instant black bean soup. The list goes on, there are so many benefits to this. So quick and easy to clean and so many uses. I no longer use my food processor.
It comes with a how to cooking demonstration with various recipes on dvd, a large cookbook, a smaller chefs recipe book as well, and the damper.
I watched the DVD right away & got some great ideas. I made my first smoothie. Quick & easy! Wow!! I am not feeling that great so I made a smoothie with 1/2 cup of water, 8 strawberries, an orange, a few pineapple slices, 2 large collard leaves & about a cup of ice. The damper, a tool you use to push down the food with was really handy & I only gave a few quick pushes & the smoothie came out amazingly smooth & pulp free! It was quick & was finished in under a minute easy! I can hardly wait to try more recipes, including peanut butter & grinding wheat for bread! It also makes dough.
I was thinking it was going to be very loud & I may have to wear ear plugs, but funny enough our regular blender is much noisier! More power & less noise. It's also easy to clean. Apparently a little more effort is put into cleaning if you make dough or nut butters, but that's to be expected.
Yes it's expensive, but looking back on the two hand held mixers, and two blenders we've owned, we could have bought this.
Another great thing about Vitamix is that it's made in the USA & supports our workers! I'd rather pay a little more for such a high quality blender with a 7 year warranty & also help our economy.
We belong to Amazon Prime & for just an extra $3.99 we got it extra quick! Ordered it Sunday evening around 11:00pm & it arrived Tuesday at 11:00am! It was also about $76 cheaper than at Bed Bath & Beyond.
******Update! Day 6 using this CIA 1363. Have made quite a few things & use it everyday! Sometimes I use it more than twice a day
Because it's SO easy to clean up! Way easier than the regular blender that you have to unscrew the bottom from the top etc.
I have made about 10 smoothies, two soups (The Vitamix Minestrone Recipe is good. :-) The potato spinach? It's ok. It's a bit 'gummy?' I've made peanut butter, tomato sauce, ground my own Raw Cacao Nibs into powder for my cookie recipe as well. ****The only thing I would change is if you have a recipe like peanut butter on high, I did end up wearing ear plugs.***** When it works like that it's kind of loud, but I still love it! Also, you WILL need those slim spatulas!! I didn't buy any & my thicker one isn't working as well. So I will buy one ASAP. Enjoy!!!****
* Professional Quality: The first time you use it, you will know it was worth the money you spent. This unit is an absolute beast! It eats everything up, spits it out and asks for more. I had read that it will automatically turn off if the motor gets too hot. Of course I had to test this. I filled up the Vitamix with frozen strawberries and started jamming it with the plunger. Well, no luck it didnt turn off because it just ate up all the strawberries and keep on going. Not sure what you have to do to over heat the Vitamix but I have yet to find out what it is.
*Clean Up: WOW. If you have ever made a smoothie before you know what the inside of the pitcher looks like after you get done pouring it out (for those who don't, its coated all around with a thick mixture). Well put in enough hot water to cover the blades in the Vitamix, put a drop of dish washing detergent in, put the lid and plunger in and then let go on full blast. With in seconds you will have a clean blender, just pour out the soapy water, rinse and you are done
*Recipes: The CIA Professional Series Vitamix comes with a great book of recipes all to use on with your Vitamix. In my opinion this is a must have if you are new to using a machine like this to assist you in your cooking. Its amazing how many food items can be made with the Vitamix. One of the coolest things is that you can make soup right int the Vitamix and it will even get hot!
Cons: None. People complain about the noise. While it is loud, so are most blenders and food processors. Not sure what people expect from a machine that can do what the Vitamix does.
