Vitamix CIA Professional Series Product Description
The Central Intelligence Agency is not the only organization in America that carries the initials CIA. The Culinary Institute of America bears the same initials with twice the pride. Originally founded in New Haven Connecticut, the main campus is located in Hyde Park in New York. CIA also has branches in San Antonio, Texas as well as in St. Helena in California, where they all enhance your culinary skills to further your career as a chef. The Vitamix CIA Professional Series Variable-Speed Countertop Blender with 2+ HP Motor and 64-Ounce Jar carries the initials of CIA with pride as well, blending the culinary skill of CIA with the precision and high quality performance of a Vitamix blender.
The Vitamix CIA Professional Series Variable-Speed Countertop Blender with 2+ HP Motor and 64-Ounce Jar features a blender that has a height of 20 inches, with 7 1/5 of length and 8 4/5 in depth, making it large enough for all your culinary blending needs.
This Vitamix blender has a 64-ounce BPA-free plastic jar has a metal bottom to allow metal-to-metal drive coupling, which allows the synchronization of the two horsepower motor to the laser-cut blades, allowing it to reach speeds of up to 240 miles per hour, easily turning that whole tomato into tomato paste. Easily create a smoothie with its ice crushing capabilities, unlike other commercial blenders.
It may not have a pulse function for those moderate chopping needs, but the variable speeds controllable with the turn dial is very efficient. If the 17-pound net weight was not enough to hold this Vitamix blender down, the nonslip feet will help stabilize the unit.
Vitamix reviews claim that the blender may not be cheap, but you will get what you paid for. One customer clamored blender malfunctions when you suddenly force it to the highest speed level, but this is merely a security mechanism so that the blender does not overheat. This is also mentioned in the instruction manual that says not to use it for a prolonged amount of time, which could also cause the motor to overheat. A reviewer even mentioned that it worked best as a juicer, even though there is no filtering process.
However, as the reviewer mentioned, that is one good point in since all the vitamins and minerals in the peelings or other things that are discarded when a dedicated juicer is used. And as he said, the Vitamix CIA Professional Series Variable-Speed Countertop Blender with 2+ HP Motor and 64-Ounce Jar helped him accomplish more than he thought possible.
Overall, the Vitamix CIA Professional Series Variable-Speed Countertop Blender with 2+ HP Motor and 64-Ounce Jar might have these small features such as the automatic shut off feature when the motor nears overheating, but this should not be seen as a flaw, since it is actually a security feature that you can be proud of. This Vitamix blender is one of the blenders used by the CIA. This is used mostly by top chefs and culinary experts. Truly, this Vitamix blender is something worth having in every kitchen.
