The Vitamix 5200 or CIA Professional as it is also known is possibly the most expensive blender on the market today. It is used heavily in restaurant kitchens as well as some cocktail bars. Now a days, more and more people are deciding to use this machine in their homes too. The reason for this is that a Vitamix blender can be a great kitchen appliance to help us stay in the best physical condition. This is because with this machine it is so easy to make the most nutritious and great tasting fruit and vegetable juices and smoothies. If you are considering following a raw food diet then you have probably already heard about this machine. The hard part can be in justifying the expense. But one way to look at it, which is what I am doing just now, is that, yes it is expensive but it is possibly one of the best investments that we could make in ourselves as possible.
What do I mean by this? Well, our own health is in many respects the most important thing for us to have a good life. A Vitamix blender can really help in this regard. So if we have to spend $500, don’t think that it is five hundred dollars on a blender, rather, you are investing five hundred dollars in yourself. And when you make an investment, you expect a return. So I believe that when I get my Vitamix blender, my life will improve by more than $500.
This sort of blender can deal with whatever we add to them. It has a variable speed setting so after adding our fruit and vegetables we start off slow and gradually increase the speed until all of the ingredients have been turned to a liquid. Then just pour the juice into a glass and you are ready to go. Cleaning the machine is so easy too. All we have to do is add some water, put the lid back on and then blend it up for a few seconds before rinsing it out.
Another thing that I like about this device is that it is produced in the United States by a U.S. owned company.
