Let us start off by saying the Vitamix is not a Juicer (but can be used as the Vitamix juicer, why? Read on).
The Vitamix is the most amazing appliance known to man. It’s super efficient, versatile, high powered blender/juicer. It functions like a blender, smoothie maker, food processor, ice cream maker and grinder in one.
You must know about it! It does not replace a juicer, however, it makes fantastic smoothies and can do amazing things with whole foods. The Vitamix is the mix-master of all blenders. You CAN use the vitamix for juicing. The difference here is that is it not seperating the pulp, but combining it with the juice. This is good because you do get the fiber, and hardly notice.While the juicer would seperate the juice from the pulp and you wouldnt need to add water, the vitamix blends the fibers into a juice.
The standard Vitamix is approximately 13 pounds and 21 inches tall. Vitamix recently produced shorter jars (making them 17 inches tall) to compete with this particularly desirable attribute of their biggest competitor. Most of the popular Vitamix models offer full manual control of your blending with a variable 10 speed dial together with a Hi/Lo switch.
The VitaMix juicer is the darling of late-night infomercials, and for good reason.
