The Vita-Mix machine is not a blender or a juice extractor. It's so much more. The surgical stainless steel blades rotate at 240 miles per hour, pulverizing whole foods down to the cellular level. Valuable nutrients locked inside the pulp, skins and seeds of fruits and vegetables cannot be absorbed because the phytonutrients are trapped within plant cells which need to be ruptured.
The Vita-Mix machine ruptures the cell walls of fresh, whole foods to make these phytonutrients more bio-available.
This amazing machine does the work of 10 appliances! The Vita-Mix machine handles over 35 kitchen tasks with ease ...and no attachments! The secret is in the Vita-Mix variable speed control combined with a 2+ peak horsepower motor.
This power allows the stainless steel Vita-Mix blades to break through the cell walls of whole fruits and vegetables and release heart-healthy nutrients you simply can't get any other way.
Versatility plus high performance. This is perfect for preparing whole food meals and grinding grains for nutritious breads, cereals and gluten-free foods.
Vitamix Blender: 4 Unique Processes that no other kitchen appliance can do!
1 - Juice Whole Foods in 60 Seconds
The Benefits of Vita-Mix Whole Food Juice
Vita-Mix Whole Food Juice includes both the juice and the fiber from fresh fruits and vegetables. Simply toss whole fresh foods into the Vita-Mix container. Then set the dial and flip the switch. You'll enjoy fresh, vitamin-rich juice -- full of fiber and important phytochemicals -- in just a minute.
Vita-Mix Whole Food Juice is smooth and delicious to drink because the Vita-Mix Super 5200 breaks the fruit or vegetable fiber down to tiny microscopic particles and releases more juice than a Juice Extractor. The secret is the high-speed 2 peak horsepower motor and the customized hammermill and cutting blades. Whole foods are literally pulverized down to the cellular level, so all the valuable vitamins and enzymes are readily available for digestion -- with full flavor.
The Difference between the Vita-Mix machine and a Juice Extractor.
The Vita-Mix machine uses the whole fruit or vegetable to make juice, so you get a more nutritious juice using less produce, with less waste and in less time than when using a juice extractor. Research has shown that the pulp a juice extractor discards is more nutritious than the juice itself. Vita-Mix Whole Food Juice keeps all the pulverized fiber in the juice -- and it's not only drinkable, it's delicious. The health benefits are the big bonus for you!
2 - Cook Soup to Steaming in 4 Minutes
The rotating hammermill and cutting blades of the Vita-Mix Super 5200 blender travel at 240 mph and generate enough friction heat to cook a half-gallon of soup to steaming hot in a matter of minutes! Cut cooking time in half when you start with boiling water. Either way, all-day cooking is a thing of the past!
Soup starts with nutritious fresh whole vegetables that cook up without peeling or seeding -- with results that even the most accomplished chef would applaud.
Prefer a chunky soup? The choice is yours. Just take a few strips of cooked chicken or a small baked potato and, while the soup is still steaming, use variable speed setting #1 to chop and mix the additional ingredients. It takes just a few seconds -- and it's a great way to use last night's leftovers!
3 - Frozen Treats in 30 Seconds
Desserts and snacks are quick, easy and guilt-free in the Vita-Mix Super 5200!
The same high-speed blade action that cooks soup enables the Vita-Mix Super 5200 to make delicious low-fat frozen treats. Starting with the frozen fruit of your choice, the high-performance hammermill and cutting blades crush and cut up frozen ingredients. This action, in turn, expands the total surface area of the frozen ingredients. As the Vita-Mix machine continues processing at high speed, the mixture refreezes itself and you get a light and luscious frozen treat in seconds!
Make commercial-quality frozen drinks at home in your Vita-Mix Blender!
Because they are so fast and reliable, you will find Vita-Mix machines in many fine and well-known restaurants and coffeehouses. You won't believe how easy it is to make consistently smooth frozen cappuccinos, margaritas and more -- right in your own home kitchen -- with the Vita-Mix Super 5200 Blender.
4 - Grind Grain and Knead Dough in one 5 Minute Operation
Treat yourself to fresh, homemade bread everyday -- it's amazingly quick and easy to do with the Vita-Mix Blender. The special dry blade container that comes with the Vita-Mix Super 5200 blender is specially designed to push food up and away, making it a better choice for dry grinding or kneading sticky dough.
The Vita-Mix Super 5200 dry container grinds wheat berries, rice or any other whole grains into ultra-fine flour in just 60 seconds. Flour ground in the Vita-Mix Super 5200 blender is consistently finer than the store-bought variety and helps you make a fresh, more nutritious loaf of bread in your bread machine. Or, if you prefer to bake your bread in the oven, add oil, yeast and other ingredients -- and the Vita-Mix Super 5200 blender mixes and kneads then into dough -- right in the same container! Your hands stay clean and dry -- and the dough is ready to rise in 5 minutes!
A note about the Vitamix Dry Blade Container . . .
When you order the Vita-Mix Super 5200 Blender, a dry-blade or "grain" container" is included in addition to the wet blade container that is designed for processing "wet" foods like juices, soups, and frozen treats. The Vita-Mix 5200 blender comes with the wet blade container only.
