Vitamix: The benchmark in blender
The Vitamix branded blender is a professional tool, which allows you to use the same device as a restaurant in your kitchen! He's the star of the owners of soup and smoothie bars! These blenders are extremely efficient and grind food very finely. Beyond the practical aspect, this allows your body to directly assimilate the vitamins and minerals contained in the food you mix. You can easily make, in record time, milkshakes, compotes, mashed potatoes, coulis, or even sauces. Thanks to its variable speed, the Vitamix blender is able to grind all types of products. The two flagship models of the brand are the Vitamix 5200 and the Vitamix Super 5200, which allows you to grind dry foods, such as almonds, hazelnuts or flour for example.

The new model of the brand for 2015, the "Blender Magnetic" not only has exceptional rotational power (20,000 rpm) but also has a magnetic motor instead of the traditional gear, hence the name the device. This blender no longer has a base, and therefore it does not come apart. There is therefore no more washing problem, since you just have to put the bowl in the dishwasher, after use. This model is so powerful that it can heat food, even raw, while retaining their vitamins and minerals! You have hot soups straight out of the appliance!
