Like most everyone, I deliberated a great deal about purchasing a kitchen appliance this expensive. Then, I saw a demonstration, and realized I could dispense with three of my other kitchen appliances. I have not looked back.
This comes with a wide ranging cookbook and a DVD which demonstrates how to use the machine. It was packaged very securely, but easy to open, and get to the Vitamix.
I am able to juice, chop and blend like a pro. Best of all, it fits right under my cabinets, so it can stay right where I need it! I blend juice from whole foods, cook soup from scratch without a stove, mix up smoothies, make ice cream, in a matter of minutes. And, because of its compact size, I have the most powerful Vitamix motor in a unit that fits in the standard 18" space underneath my cabinets.
I am now able to provide the daily amount of fruits and vegetables that I have long wanted. I place my ingredients in the blender and have a nutritious smoothie within minutes. I have made soups, sauces and dips. The cookbook is convenient and filled with scrumptious recipes. I use this daily for my smoothies. It is handy and accessible, and at the end of the week, I raid my refrigerator of leftovers and mix either a soup or a smoothie.
The Vitamix included A Vitamix Creations Galaxy Class Base, 48-oz BPA-free container, 300-recipe "Vitamix Creations" cookbook, tamper, dual-sided silicone spatula.
