Vitamix 5200 Review

The Vitamix Blender is a great product that comes with many features and an amazing warranty that we will talk about in a bit. The great thing about this blender is that you will find yourself blending not just to be healthier, but you suddenly crave the newfound tastes of juicing with a blender, and your confidence will be backed by a phenomenal 7 warranty.

 

Unlike immersion blenders which are also called handhelds, the Vitamix 5200 is a countertop blender which implies it possesses an electric motor in a base upon which its jar or container is attached. It is this same motor that powers the blender’s laser-cut stainless-steel blades which are located on top of the base at the bottom of the container.

With this 2 plus peak horsepower(HP) motor which generates blade speeds of 240 MPH{miles per hour}, the Vitamix 5200 outperforms conventional 3 horsepower blenders out there. This is because the Vitamix 5200 was built to maximize the performance for the expected application, not the horsepower of the motor. Some machines use misleading input horsepower rather than the more accurate peak motor output that Vitamix uses. This also makes the Vitamix 5200  counter-top blenders more powerful than any immersion units there is.

Also, because the motor work hand-in-hand with the stainless steel blades and the exceptional container, the

Do you really need a 3 HP blender…

Absolutely not. 3 HP only offers better performance in commercial applications requiring continuous heavy load capability. This type of performance is not needed or beneficial for household machine performance. Even a substance as hard as an avocado pit does not require a 3 HP motor? The 2 peak HP Vitamix 5200 machine does a fine job of grinding avocado pits.

It works great for blending, pureeing, chopping, juicing, grinding, and more. Everything is done in just minutes

with no attachments. This amazing machine performs over 35 different culinary jobs with ease, and can easily replace 10 kitchen appliances. This is why it is a must-have for everyone. The Vitamix 5200 is also quieter than normal blenders while still upholding the power needed to create even the iciest smoothies with great capacity and grind coffee in a pinch. 

A high-speed blender…

It is called a high-speed blender because its speed goes up to 240 mph (4 times faster than a regular blender.) This means that its blades don’t even have to be sharp; even if they were just dull metal sticks they could still liquify something as hard as, for instance, blocks of wood. Any simple blender out there will blend the tough cellulose of greens only so long as its blades are sharp. Unfortunately, when the blades become dull, they just move around doing nothing and the blender quickly overheats in no time.

Furthermore, the Vitamix 5200 is more durable than other plastic blenders in the sense that it is an “all-metal construction” blender. It also has a variable speed control; an on-off switch, a dial to control variable speed, and a toggle for switching to high speed. This helps you in maintaining control over the blending process.

Cons:

 

Large container/unit could be an issue for storage

Takes a few uses to figure out your preferred blending times

One of the biggest downsides to the Vitamix is the price, it is a great quality product but it cost more than its competitor.  The Vitamix is slightly larger than its competitors and can be an issue considering it does not fit under many cupboards so hopefully, you have some room for it,  you could just remove the container and store it away until you need to use it. Another small issue is that you might need to guess a little on exactly how long you want your Vitamix to blend your foods to get the desired results. Most people after using these blenders a while prefer their own mixing time anyway, you really have a sense of being able to customize your smoothie and juices. The Vitamix is a great blender that is built with top-notch quality, it does not have all the features that the Blendtec has but to each their own.  The Vitamix is a great blender and could be the right blender for you considering, the great warranty and a 3 hp motor that will chop anything you desire down to its cellular structure.
