When it comes to top-of-the-line blenders, you simply can’t go wrong with a Vitamix. It’s no surprise that Vitamix blenders are regularly editor-favorites around here, thanks to their long-lasting, powerful motors and strong airplane-grade stainless steel blades. It’s only natural that we’ve ranked one model (the Vitamix Professional Series 750, to be exact) as a repeat best blender winner Kitchn’s annual Essential Tools list.
One thing about Vitamix blenders, however, is that they tend to be pretty pricey. While they’re totally worth the splurge, there’s no doubt that the best time to invest is when there’s a Vitamix sale taking place — which just so happens to be right now! From now until Mar. 6, you can take up to $50 off two top Vitamix blenders, the Explorian E310 and TurboBlend Three Speed. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to treat yourself to a Vitamix, now is the best time to do so!
While some of these blenders can cost upwards of $600, the more affordable Vitamix Explorian blender is a great option for anyone new to the Vitamix family. Coming in at under $300, this is a blender that will last you for years without any complicated or over-the-top controls. It comes with ten variable speeds for the perfect consistency depending on whether you’re chopping, blending, or puréeing. The laser-cut stainless steel blades can chop through nuts and fibrous greens, making it the perfect tool for professional-quality smoothies or juice. And, with its 48-ounce container, it’s the perfect size for two without being overly clunky on your counter.
If you’re looking for a larger model, then the Vitamix TurboBlend is a great option. With a 64-ounce container, it’s ideal for large batches of smoothies or soup. It includes three easy settings, designed to allow you to turn your blender on and walk away while it goes to work. It also has a pulse button for chopping and food prep as well.
Reviewers of both models attested to making hot soup, gazpacho, smoothies, nut butter, hummus, and so much more with ease. One person wrote, “Absolute beast of a blender! Smoothies have ZERO chunks and I love how easy it is to use and clean.” Another added, “Previously I had to brush my teeth and rinse my mouth after my smoothies just to get all the bits and pieces and fruit skins out of my teeth, but the Vitamix blended my morning smoothie up into a completely uniform liquid. It was amazing!”
While it goes without saying that these Vitamix blenders will seriously upgrade your morning smoothie routine, investing in one will also improve your cooking in general. Whether you’re making frozen desserts, peanut butter, pizza dough, or homemade baby food, these blenders will make life in the kitchen so much easier.
