Vitamix

Like Tree14Likes

My jet engine...I mean blender... is still kicking.

I can't even bring myself to spend the money to buy a food processor (which I'd probably use) so I know I won't spend hundreds on a vitamix that I don't need.

Just nice to entertain a thought from time to time.

Honestly, I could probably fall in love with it and still feel the need to send it back because I feel so guilty spending that much. Oy vey. We got it for $379 (before tax, I have to ignore the tax or I feel even worse).

We'll see how it goes, I've got 30 days to decide. I will say using it today to make my smoothie was a breeze and so darn quiet compared to my old blender. Of course that's not enough justification to keep it. I wouldn't even let Mr. Spring facebook a picture of it I felt so guilty about it.

I ordered the newer model last night
I've been wanting one for ages!!!!!! My hubby said, go for it! I could not take my card out of my wallet fast enough!!! Only thing, after I placed the order, I realized I could have bought one within 20 miles!!
Ugh! Anyway, the new one has preset buttons and a pulse switch.
I am beyond excited!!!!!
I plan on using it to make flours, smoothies, soup...you name it!!

i used mine this morning to blend chocolate almond milk and a frozen banana! so yummy! i use mine about 2-3 times a week. if i got better/faster about prepping ingredients i'd use it everyday. i was almost going to buy a juicer when i realized i'm happy with my vitamix and could use it a lot more than i already do. great investment.

question for vitamix users: is there an order you're supposed to add ingredients (i.e. heavy vs. liquids)?

are you always supposed to start on variable at a low number then crank up the number then switch to the other setting? i don't want to ruin my vitamix using it the wrong way.

please recycle, it matters...

i'm more relaxed being natural
It goes for any blender that you should start with relatively little liquid for smoother results and you should start slow then crank it up.
There's very little need to use the high setting on a Vitamix unless you're making certain kinds of purées. I've only ever had to use it one or two times in all the restaurants I've worked in. Highest on variable is plenty for most things.

Still loving it! Almost over my price guilt! That's my issue though and I've always been that way with pricier stuff.

Mr. Spring bought some unsalted peanuts yesterday to make peanut butter with so we'll see how that goes.

The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond.
I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I would have bought a food processor myself. Cheaper and more versatile. Just bread and pastry doughs alone make a food processor worth it.

Side note, thought about you yesterday because we went in Cowgirl Creamery to get some cheese while showing family around Point Reyes.

Life is so unfair.
We got Wagon Wheel, have you tried it? It's going in some mac n cheese at some point, it's good. Really good.

I just fixed my family a strawberry smoothie, they were very happy.
I have a list of things I want to try out next. I definitely want to make some green smoothies, breads, soups...you name it! The Mac and cheese recipe looks scrumptious!!
I felt guilty opening up the box...for all of 1 minute

I just ordered mine! I've wanted one for years but could never justify the price. I was finally convinced by my cousin and his wife. He lost 30 lbs just by juicing in theirs and their son's development (he's on the spectrum) greatly improved almost immediately. I'm doing the QVC payment pln so it's a little easier on the bank account. I'm really excited. I'm home all day and I hope this will be a way to get more veggies in me. Also will be making smoothies for Luke's breakfast. He could really use a better option than cereal.
