The vitamix 5200 is a blender that allows you to prepare and enjoy a wide variety of healthy foods. There are different versions of the vitamix available, and different packages include added components. These blenders are designed for whole food mixing so you can get all the vitamins out of your fruits and vegetables. Most vitamins are found in the peels, seeds, and cores of produce. Those are the parts that most people throw away. The vitamix allows you to mix those parts into what you are making. You get healthier smoothies, soups, sauces, and other dishes. You also save money by using the whole ingredient, rather than throwing some of it away.
All the blenders come with a container, motor, and base. The motor has a built-in cooling fan for heavy duty use. The base has a retractable cord for convenience. The 64 ounce container has laser cut, stainless steel blades and a fitted lid. A whole food recipe cookbook is included that has a printed guide to help you get started and a DVD version as well. A tamper is also included. This is a tool that helps you blend food items that tend to stick to the sides of the blender—things like frozen fruit, peanut butter, and honey. Every version of the blender is backed by a seven year warranty.
The vitamix 5200 super package also contains a 32 ounce dry grain blender and a whole grain cookbook. These added components are very useful for people who are serious about eating healthy and those who need a specialized diet. The whole grain blender allows you to make your own flour. This is great if you need to eat gluten free or wish to stay away from white flours. The cookbook provides recipes and tips for using whole grains in meals, drinks, and snacks.
You can eliminate processed foods from your diet, and help your family eat healthier. You can make nut butters, very healthy smoothies, and even frozen treats using whole grains. There is also a deluxe complete kitchen set available. It includes everything in the super package, plus four flexible cutting boards, a three piece spatula set, and a mini tamper.
