The Vitamix Blender Difference
When it comes to Vitamix blenders, chefs know that they're in for the long haul. That's because Vitamix adheres to a strict set of design principles designed to make your restaurant equipment last. Vitamix blades are cut from hardened stainless steel to tackle the hardest of ingredients. Pair that with a powerful motor designed to deliver consistent results over time and you've got a solid blender on your hands.
Each Vitamix container is specially-designed with a unique shape that effectively moves ingredients down into the blades. With its wide top and narrowed base, you can emulsify ingredients more quickly and efficiency. Plus, there's nothing like a tapered spout that helps you with faster pours. And since a Vitamix utilizes a metal drive system, you've always got a solid connection between container and the motor base.
But a little known fact about Vitamix blenders is that you don't have to worry about twisting the container and waiting for it to click in place; instead, just place the container and go. This small operation might not seem much, but when you've got a bustling back bar or you're consistently training new staff, the seconds you shave on the simplest of tasks can really add up.
Caring for Your Vitamix Blender
As with any piece of restaurant equipment, parts will naturally wear over time. Maximize the life of your investment by regularly checking the drive socket and container on your Vitamix. The drive socket may have nicks, cracks or gouges on the outer surface, which could compromise the performance of your machine. Plus, operating your Vitamix with a damaged drive socket could damage your blade assembly and cause this part to be replaced prematurely.
Take care when cleaning your Vitamix with sanitizer solution. Using a sanitizer too strong could cause hairline cracks to develop in your Vitamix container, making it brittle and with a cloudy appearance. Failure to follow Vitamix's sanitizer requirements could void the container and blade assembly warranty. Don't take the risk!
