Vitamix blenders are known to be the only ones strong enough to withstand the daily demands of professional kitchens. For home cooks, that means this is a blender that is robust enough to crush ice, process nut butters, mix pizza dough, mill flour from whole grains, grind coffee, and heat soup.* The machine's 1500-watt engine also signifies better quality: smoother smoothies (no chunks of greens or ice), creamier purees, and so much more. The Vitamix Explorian E310 (28 x 20 x 46 cm) has a 1.4-litre capacity, ideal for smaller households, and a simple interface. A dial, from 1 to 10, allows for a wide variety of consistencies, while a pulse button allows for coarse chopping that comes in handy when making chunky salsas, granitas, and more. Cleaning is easy: The container is dishwasher-safe, or it's just as simple to clean with a drop of washing-up liquid diluted in water and blended in the machine. Each machine comes with a tamper that helps push ingredients down, a cookbook, and a five-year warranty.
*It does not cook the soup, but heats it, so ingredients must be cooked first when needed. For example, it can reheat steamed carrots that have cooled, but it will not steam the carrots. Ideal for leftover vegetables!

About The Brand
Vitamix is a fourth-generation, family-owned company that, from its very beginnings in the 1930s, was centred on making healthy eating quick and easy. They were the first company to sell a blender powerful enough to make hot soup, blend ice cream, grind grain, and knead bread dough. The brand pays attention into every detail of their machines, such as perfecting airflow circulation around the motor. This ensures a durable, quieter, more reliable motor that will serve you for several years.
We believe in their machines for the same reason that professional chefs do—they make life easier. Whether you want to utilise some of the advanced techniques these blenders have to make your own non-dairy milks or nut butters, or you simply want to make a Friday afternoon margarita, your Vitamix can handle it like a pro.Shop Vitamix
