Tips + tricks / Boost you blending IQ🍓
Whether you’re new to Vitamix or have been blending for years, here are a few simple tips and tricks every Vitamix owner should know.
1. Liquids first, place heavier, frozen items on top of lighter ingredients helps weigh them down and gets the blend moving faster. This can help prevent the blend from stalling, also called cavitation, which happens when air pockets form around the blades.
2. Blend on high, whether you’re making smoothies, soups, or even thicker blends like hummus or sorbet, you’ll almost always get the best results by starting the blender on low and quickly ramping up to high.
3. Cover the blades, Vitamix blenders need a minimum volume of ingredients in order to blend well. A good guide is to make sure you use enough ingredients to cover the blades while blending.
4. Did you know that the lid plug of your Vitamix container doubles as a small measuring cup? Look closely and you’ll see half-ounce and one-ounce fill lines. These are perfect for cocktails recipes, or if you need to thin a blend by adding a small amount of liquid.
5. Self cleaning, all Vitamix blenders are self-cleaning: just add a few drops of dish soap, fill halfway with warm water and run on high for 30-60 seconds (or run the Clean program).
