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!!!****
I had been eyeing this product at a luxury retailer for almost a year, but I was reluctant to buy because of the price. Also, I have been wanting to break out of my shell and start preparing foods from scratch like the chef's do. So finally, I caved in and purchased it through Amazon (better deal). When it arrived, I was impressed by the size, it definitely is a commercial grade product. Also, the carafe is surprisingly light, not made of glass, but very strong and well built. However, I felt trepidation when it came to turning it on, fearing that such a powerful machine must pack a loud punch. Again, I was pleasantly surprised when I turned it on, the sound was (for lack of a better term), ambient, compared to my previous blender. I could blend all day and not be bothered by the sound of a small boat engine in my kitchen.
I am so impressed with the way this blends, not a lump remains. And while I am not a cook, I have been making recipes non stop. I made the onion cheese frittata that came in the wonderful recipe book that came with it, and even my mother who is a seasoned cook was impressed. Also tried an Italian ice fruit dessert which was amazing. I love that one can make hot soups, gazpacho (which I love), sauces, butters, and so much more!
Now when I go to the grocery store, I don't even buy packaged products because I know I can make the same thing at home (and a healthier version at that). I now just purchase lot's of fruits and vegetables and with that alone, I know I can make a number of satisfying meals in a matter of minutes. I can actually fulfill my dream of cooking full meals at holidays without having to order the food pre-made or cooking a couple ok recipes. Meals are limitless with this product. This product is how great, restaurant quality meals are made.
