Duck into any pro kitchen worth its salt and you'll find one of these beauties at the ready. It's one of the world's leading kitchen tools for making everything from frozen drinks to creamy soups.
The beauty is in the huge amount of power packed into the motor, which enables the Vitamix to do a wide range of kitchen tasks. It's strong enough to pulverize pretty much any ingredient, from the tiniest seeds to the biggest ice cubes. Variable speed control means you can achieve a variety of textures at any point during the blend. And the blades are so fast, you can even heat soup in no time at all due to the friction created. And because the container holds a whopping 64 ounces, you can serve the whole family.
