A big fat, yes!
Vitamix manufactures several blender model series, but let us focus this review on the model Vitamix 5200. If you take your health and nutrition seriously, then you owe it to yourself to own one of the best kitchen appliances that maximizes the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
Vitamix blenders come with their famous “tamper tool”. The tamper lets you push ingredients down into the blades while the blender is running. It is an essential tool for making nut butters, fruit sorbet or vegan ice cream. It really comes in handy for making green smoothies since leafy greens love to get caught above the blades during blending.
Vitamix had no problem liquifying pineapple core, raw carrot, tough kale and frozen strawberries. The Vitamix 5200 blender has a powerful two peak horsepower, 11.5 amp motor. The motor is powerful enough to blend up the smoothest green smoothies without leaving any bits of fruit or greens intact.
The 5200’s power and design also makes it significantly more diverse than any standard blender. Extended blending times on the High setting generate exceptional blade speeds which, along with a given set of ingredients, creates enough friction within the jar, itself, to cook ingredients into soups, syrups, fondues, etc.
Finally, users of the vitamix 5200 juicer will have to resign themselves to the fact that the machine is loud when in use.
