Vita Mix Blender Review
In this Vita Mix blender review, we’ll take a look at the ever-popular Vitamix 5200. The Vitamix 5200 is Vitamix’s flagship blender and makes whole food juice, cooks steaming hot soup from scratch, and even makes healthy, homemade ice cream.
Vita Mix Blender Review – The Specs
The Vitamix 5200 blender is built like a tank, and it was designed to outperform and outlast virtually every other appliance on the market. It is a high performance appliance that combines versatility with commercial-grade components and construction.
If you’ve never handled a Vita Mix blender before, you’re in for a treat. From the first time we picked up the Vitamix 5200, it was obvious that this blender was built like an absolute tank.
Featuring an impressive Swedish-built 2 peak HP motor that was custom designed for the Vitamix 5200, this blender runs much cooler and is much more energy efficient than other blenders we’ve reviewed.
We’re also big fans of the Vitamix 5200′s feedback-type variable speed control. With speeds ranging from 11 mph to 240 mph, the blender provides steady, consistent power regardless of load.
The blender includes an all-new Eastman Tritan 64 ounce copolyester container that provides the durability of polycarbonate, but features improved chemical resistance and sound damping. The ergonomic soft-grip handle is extremely comfortable to hold, and makes pouring a joy.
Blending food during our tests was never a challenge for the Vitamix 5200, thanks in large part to the unique stainless steel hammermill and cutting “wet” blades. These blades process whole foods better than any other appliance we’ve tested to date, and don’t overheat the food in the process (which can destroy up to 3 times the nutrition value).
The spill-proof vented lid with removable lid plug which is a nice touch, making it easy to measure and add ingredients safely while the blender is running. Last (but certainly not least), clean up is super quick and easy with the Vitamix 5200 blender — simply add a few drops of dish soap, some warm water, and run on high for 30 seconds.
Vitamix 5200 Blender Review – Final Thoughts
The Vitamix 5200 blender is a beast of a machine that easily tackled everything we threw at it, and the overall build quality left us truly impressed.
If you’re seriously thinking about buying a Vita Mix blender, you’re probably already aware of the fact that these machines aren’t exactly cheap. However, if you truly want to purchase the best blender money can buy and make an investment in an appliance that will serve you faithfully for many years to come, there’s no better choice in our opinion. Add to that the fact that the Vitamix 5200 is backed by a full 7 year warranty, and purchasing one quickly becomes a no-brainer.
