To make a chunky soup cooked meat or seafood may be added on low speed durning the last few seconds. The Professional Series doesn't stop at soups!

Dry ChoppingDry chopping is used for such things as carrots olives nuts coconut onions eggs and cheese. With the Professional Series these tasks are quick easy and require little cleanup. For best results chop only one cup at a time. You decide how coarse or fine you want the finished product by adjusting the Variable Speed Dial. The faster the speed. the finer the chop. Remember the precision-crafted stainless steel blades do all the work so you don't have to. You can even combine some items used in the same recipe to save more time. Wet ChoppingWater draws the item into the blades resulting in a uniform chop. The type of chop whether coarse or fine is determined by the speed selected on the Variable Dial. With wet chopping you can easily prepare vegetables for soups salads stir-frying.

So this is hands down the BEST blender I have ever used.. I love to make a smoothie in the morning if I am going to work .. now back in the day making a smoothie I would have to blend it then strain out the seeds of the raspberries and strawberries.. but then I bought this bad boy .. and my straining days are over! Not a seed in sight! Perfectly smooth every time! Now this blender is pretty expensive .. but it’s also 100% worth it .. and I would buy it over and over again in a heartbeat. And another good thing is that this little beast cleans itself .. simply throw some soap and water in it .. turn it on to swish the water around and then rinse! So easy!

C'est mon meilleur achat dans la cuisine à vie !!! Un mélangeur pour la VIE !!! Il est ultra puissant. Que ce soit pour un végé-paté, un lait de noix, un hummus vous aller avoir une texture crèmeuse incomparable. Tu peux faire des crèmes avec des aliments cuits et elle va chauffer et être onctueuse a souhait !!!!! Tu va être un vrai chef culinaire a la maison . Besoin de farine d'amande ? Pas de soucis ton Vitamix est là pour toi !!! Une slush ? Let's go !! Il est intuable, se lave super bien ... Tu lave le bol et ajouté un peu d'eau et une goutte de savon à vaisselle, tu repart ton Vitamix une minute et il est propre. C'est mon meilleur achat dans la cuisine depuis longtemps ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Love this blender. Gets any job done fast and thorough! No chunks when you don't want any. Can make hot soup. Has the smoothie option to start the function slowly and surely. Very sturdy going on 5+ years

4 stars only because it’s a pain to clean if your sink is small! Other than that, worth every penny!

Love it, use it everyday (to make smoothies, sauces), very good to make vegan cashew sauce and plant based milk and it leaves them very smooth. It’s expensive but it’s very good quality and the costumer service is excellent, I got a replacement jar for free because mine is rusting at the bottom, so one tip: don’t wash the bottom where the metal parts are, it can rust). Rusting doesn’t occur because the product is low quality, but the opposite, it needs good components to blend everything very well. I got the refurbished I long time ago and it stills works, I have never had a problem with it.

Best investment ever. Makes anything you want it to and fast. My smoothies have never come out as good as they do now since I have the vitamix. So easy to clean too. Soups taste amazing in there as well.

I purchased a used Vitamix from Amazon for my boyfriend's birthday and he absolutely LOVES it. We can make all sorts of things in it. So far we have made hummus, salad dressing, butternut squash soup, and lots of shakes! I would definitely recommend.
