The Monster Has Arrived

Friday, August 31, 2012

Yes, the Vitamix is here. I unboxed it yesterday afternoon, registered it online (guaranteed for 7 years!), and watched the DVD. Also thumbed through the nice cookbook that gives a ton of great ideas on all types of recipes. I do intend to use it, among other ways, as a juicer and excited that I will no longer have wasted pulp.

It's a huge piece of equipment, and built like a tank. I'm a bit intimidated and may just walk around it today, getting used to it. Or not. I'm thinking of an orange drink a bit later. Smoothie or sorbet. We'll see.

Wishing all a fun holiday weekend.

    It has the power of a tank too. That's what makes it so great!

    I so wanted to get a Vitamix several years ago but it was just too expensive and now the cost has gone up and my income has fallen down a very large mine shaft, lol

Enjoy your Vitamix and heres to your Health....

  I too was intimidated at first. The power, the noise. Haha. But now I get comfort from the power. I know the stuff in it is going down. Here's a hint: at first I had a tendency to not let it run long enough-because of the massive power, but if they say run it 1 minute, do that. Have fun.

    My point is that you're not juicing if you're not extracting juice - not that that's a bad thing! It's just different. Blending isn't the same ad juicing, no matter how powerful the blender.

But it's good! I did CCK's green lemonade this morning (apples, celery, kale & lemon juice with a few drops of stevia . . . awesome!).

Mine is definitely out of warranty & I'll be lost if it breaks.
