The recent rise of juicing has seen an influx of blenders, cold press juicers and food processers claiming to revolutionise the world of healthy eating. But for all the hype around each release, there has always been one at the top of every nutritionist and foodie’s wish list.

Dubbed the ‘Ferrari’ of blenders, the Vitamix has achieved a cult-like status in the culinary world. So what makes it so special? In essence, the Vitamix is a high-speed blender, which means one can blend almost any food without burning out the motor or damaging the blades.

Boasting a 2-horsepower motor that propels the blade tip speed up to 240 miles per hour, the Vitamix also allows for variable speeds allowing it to chop, grind or fully blend ingredients with speed and efficiency. The machine also uses a metal drive system to connect the container to the motor base – allowing for better blends and a longer lifespan.

Smash through coffee beans, puree soups, and get the most from every vitamin and mineral in fruit and vegetable blends, the Vitamix will whip your food into shape and you’ll wonder how you did without it.
