Our old Cuisinart blender finally gave up on us, so it was time for a replacement. We tried a Ninja, but I was very disappointed in the results when whipping up my bulletproof coffee in the morning – did a very poor job producing the nice creamy textured coffee that I was used to. I found our Oster Immersion blender did a better job than the Ninja, although not as good as our old blender.
So the search continued. A friend suggested checking out the Vitamix line – which I had seen in the past, but who would every spend that much on a blender! Well, as it turns out, we had enough Air Miles points to get one without laying out any cash at all, so why not! I ordered the Vitamix E310.
About 2 weeks later, the new blender arrived. I was very impressed with the solid build, and very surprised at the noise level. I think our old blender was louder, even with the Vitamix cranked up to full speed!
I followed their First Blend guide in the owners manual, and made a Golden Berry, Banana, and Lettuce smoothy. In less than a minute, I was amazed. I should have gotten one of these years ago!
This morning I made up my first bulletproof coffee in the Vitamix, and I was very pleased with the results. I think I’ll be trying a lot more with it – hummus, and mushroom soup are next I think…
