Twelve years ago, before smoothie making was even a 'thing', I bought my first Vitamix and I've never looked back. From creamy dips to uber smooth soups and smoothies a high-speed blender is a must-have investment piece in a Foodie's kitchen. And whilst I've been tempted with other brands that have come and gone over the years, nothing has stood the test of time like my Vitamix.
Why it's a Kay Ali Must-Have
Whether you're making homemade baby food, smoothies, dips or soups the Vitamix is unrivalled when it comes to making a super smooth blend. Over the years Kay has been fortunate to have been gifted with competitor brands, and can vouch that nothing works quite like the Vitamix.
Product Details Worth the Gloat
Made with BPA-free plastic, the Vitamix A3500i comes with a tamper, 225ml bowl, 600ml cup, blade base, tamper holder, under blade scraper and a delicious 'Simply Blending' recipe book. It's largest cup holds an astonishing 2L and its base drives an unrivalled power of 1.64kW which achieves a super creamy texture, whatever you're blending.
Why it's Worth the Price (and Hype)
Kay tells us that she'll never forget what her mother said to her when she told her the price of her Vitamix 12 years ago. Something along the lines of "blimey, that's just as much as a cooker". Yet 12 years on Kay Ali maintains that it's worth it and has in fact earned its value a thousand times over in the kitchen. With 10 years guarantee (if purchased from John Lewis) it's a sturdy and trusty kitchen gadget for the avid kitchen junkie.
