If you are prepared to spend more to get the best, it would be hard to go past the Vitamix CIA Professional Series Blender which many people believe sets the benchmark when it comes to blenders. At $475 there’s no getting around that the price is steep, but if your budget can stretch to it it will be a purchase you will be very happy you made.

From family owned and run American company Vitamix, around since 1921 and going stronger than ever, this industry leader has been endorsed by the Culinary Institute of America who have chosen Vitamix blenders to be the only ones they use to train their up-and-coming professional chefs.

Around for a number of years now, it gives the home chef access to the same blender used and favored by professional chefs. Available on Amazon, it currently has a 4.6 out of 5 star rating following reviews from 326 purchasers. Coming with a full 7 year warranty, you can buy with confidence knowing you will be covered in the unlikely event there's a problem.

Anyone who enjoys cooking and is looking to upgrade their kitchen equipment will be very happy with this blender. Its extra large 64 ounce capacity BPA and drip-free Eastman Tritan copolyester container is the ideal size for large families or people who entertain.


With a height of 20 1/2 inches including the container, the Vitamix CIA Professional Series Blender is 7 1/4 inches wide and it has a depth of 8 3/4 inches. Its cord is a very handy 6 foot long.

Coming in a choice of stylish colors that include Brushed Stainless, Onyx, Platinum and Ruby, the Vitamix CIA Professional Series Blender will slot right into any kitchen, enhancing its décor as it makes preparing ingredients for appetizers, entrees and desserts easier than ever before.

Its powerful but quiet 2-peak horsepower motor is capable of operating at up to 240 mph. With 3 inch diameter laser-cut, stainless steel hammermill blades that can cut and blend even the toughest ingredients in seconds to an even consistency, you will be extremely impressed with its performance.

User-friendly and very reliable, if you've had trouble with blenders in the past you will be amazed at the Vitamix CIA's ability to chop vegetables, blend smoothies, grind nuts, puree baby food and even churn butter, and that's just the start! Want hot soup?

That's no problem with this very versatile appliance. Just load in your chosen ingredients, and the Vitamix CIA will take care of the rest. In the mood for something cold? Throw in some ice and 3 seconds later you will have "snow", perfect for use in frozen drinks and desserts.

Coming with two table top quality recipe books that will have you cooking like a professional in no time, also included with your purchase is a handy Getting Started DVD demonstrating the techniques and recipe creation, and a Tamper for processing frozen desserts and thick mixtures such as nut butters.

Cleaning the Vitamix CIA Blender is simply a matter of adding a drop of dish soap to the vessel and switching the setting to high for about thirty seconds. Tip out the water, give the container a quick rinse under the tap, and it's done.

The Vitamix CIA Professional Series Blender will take care of all your food preparation needs quickly, smoothly and efficiently, turning out ingredients and meals of uniform consistency.
