I used to think people who got so excited about the VITAMIX were crazy. What's the big deal? I just didn't get it. UNTIL NOW...
NOW I am the proud owner of the new, Next Generation: G Series Professional Series 750! I never knew I could love a kitchen appliance this much. Once we started eating Paleo, I figured I'd better check out a new, higher powered blender as a way to get more greens in our diet. My ancient Oster that was chipped just wasn't cutting it. I decided on this model because a good friend of mine who is a doctor has one of these baby's and she did all the research already! The first thing that sets it apart is it is shorter than the previous models so it fits nicely under overhead cabinets, so you can keep it on your countertop for daily use...and still tuck it away. The second thing is it has a more powerful motor with the latest sound dampening technology. It's also the only Vitamix that comes in the color "stainless steel"! Others come in "Platinum" which is silver. It has 5 pre-programmed settings for Smoothies, Frozen Desserts, soups (they come out hot!), purees, and a self cleaning setting! I use this setting all the time. You just fill it halfway with water, put in two drops of dish soap, and start it up! All of these settings stop when it's finished so you could literally walk away. Amazing. It also has the variable speed setting and the pulse button. This model also has a backlit dial and a large 64 oz, wide container. It also comes with the huge hardback cookbook called "Create".
Since I've gotten it, I have not gone one day without using it at least twice a day. I have made green smoothies daily, Thai Pumpkin Soup, Berry Frozen Dessert (with coconut milk) and Homemade Olive Oil Mayonnaise!
All I can say is, VITAMIX, where have you been my whole life?? I'm sorry it took me so long to truly understand just how fabulous you are. Better late than never…and better health than EVER!!
