Here is everything you need to know about the Vitamix blender.
Vitamix 5200 is the blender that you should choose if you want to make the perfect green smoothies. Vitamix 5200 has the controls and power to make the perfect smoothie with no solids in it. The product is manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio and then assembled in America, but the motor is a produced in Sweden and is all about power and durability. The motor is powerful two peak horsepower, 11.5 amp motor. This motor is better than Vitamix 5000’s motor, it is not stronger, but more efficient due to the improved engineering which results in sustainability and the cooling occurs faster during operation, which further results in energy saving and improved motor performance. The top speed on Vitamix 5200 is 37,000 revolutions per minute, which yields the perfectly blended smoothies. The product blends pineapple core, raw carrot, frozen strawberries and tough kale without any problems. The blades are a 4-blade assembly. The blades are stainless steel, hammer-shaped and spin in counterclockwise rotation.
The major improvements that can be seen, which were not present in Vitamix 5000, are the improvements in the jar and lid. The traditional polycarbonate jars which were very strong are replaced with copolyster which is even stronger and durable. The change of material results in a jar that is both chemical and heat resistant and also the copolyster doesn’t contain Bisphenol-A, which was present in the jar made up of polycarbonate. Due to the change of material, the product is now quieter during its operation. The lid is also re-designed in such a way that it stays put when the blender is in operation.
In Vitamix 5200, user can choose the color of the motor body. The jar and lid comes in one color only but you can have the control panel according to choice. The most important feature that makes Vitamix 5200 different from other blenders is the tamper tool. Vitamix blenders come with their renowned “tamper tool”. The tamper lets you drive ingredients down into the borders as the blender is running. It is a vital tool for making nut butters, fruit sorbet or vegan ice cream. It truly comes in handy for making green smoothies as leafy greens tend to get caught above the blades across blending. The interface of the blender is very user friendly and easy controls. The interface has a switch and dial interface. When you turn the blender “On”, it starts blending at a slow speed. You can adjust the speed of the blender by using a knob; the speed can be altered from 1 to 10. If you want to whip your smoothie, change the speed from variable to high to get the best whipped smoothie. The power cord is very smartly placed under the product. The power and versatility of the Vitamix 5200 is nothing short of remarkable, and is apparent in several unique practical applications. As one would expect, dense, fibrous fruits and vegetables are easily transformed into perfectly smooth juices and smoothies. This machine is best for making every kind of smoothie, sorbet, ice cream and juice.
