The New Vitamix CIA Professional
Countertop Blender

Vita-Mix CIA Professional Countertop Blender

Full 7-Year WarrantyThe New Vitamix CIA

After several months of experimentation and comparison, I now use the Vitamix-CIA Blender as my primary blender for green smoothies, nut cheese spreads, salad dressings, etc. It's not the power that convinced me, although the power is INCREDIBLE and VARIABLE.

"The Push to Change"

It was the PUSHER TOOL (tamper) that pushed me over the edge! The Vitamix Pusher allows me to press items into the blades without having to add more liquids or remove the top and press down the contents of the container. Remember, I'm the one that always pushes kitchen appliances to their limits! And the tamper tool allows me to overfill and still get great results.




Features of the Vitamix CIA

The Vitamix CIA Professional includes: a (64 ounce wet blade container made of Eastman Tritan™ copolyester, a new soft-grip handle, easy-remove lid and lid plug, and a special one-hour DVD Cooking Class with Chef Michael Symon that is filled with professional tips and techniques. Most importantly, the Vitamix CIA Professional Series comes with the peace of mind that only a 7-year full performance warranty can provide. Pledging complete customer satisfaction, Vitamix will keep your CIA Professional Series machine running just like new, or they will fix or replace it for you.

The Vitamix CIA Professional Series package also includes everything you need to start cooking like a professional chef—right in your own kitchen! "Create" is a cookbook that is eye-catching to begin with, but the content is absolutely masterful. Recipes from world-renowned chefs are complemented by dramatic full-color photos and presented in a space-saving easel-back design. The companion cookbook, "Recipes and Techniques," includes special recipes and tips direct from the CIA Certified Master Chefs.

Vitamix CIA Professional Series Dry Blade Container
Optional Grain Grinding Container

A dry grain grinding blade container may be purchased separately and is designed for efficient low-friction grain grinding. I recommend purchasing this blade container to round out the Vitamix CIA performance for any given recipe.

BUY the Vitamix Tritan Copolyester 32-Ounce Container with Dry Blade, Lid, and Recipe Book

Containers

New Eastman Tritan™ copolyester containers are as durable as poly-carbonate, feature improved sound damping and is chemical resistant. The 64 ounce comes with an ergonomic soft-grip handle.

Motor

A new Swedish-built 2-peak HP motor, custom designed for this machine, runs substantially cooler with energy savings and improved performance.

Variable Speed Controls

Switches and dials on the Vitamix CIA provide immediate variable speed control so that I can start low and increase or decrease power as needed while processing my recipes. Speed ranges from 11 mph to 240 mph

Blades

Unique stainless steel hammer mill and cutting "wet" blades process whole foods for smoothies, frozen desserts, soups and more like no other appliance to deliver up to 3 times the nutrition.

Switches

New soft-touch switches and a dial provide quick responses for any recipe creation.

Lids

2 Patented, spill-proof vented lids, sized for each container, with removable lid plugs let me measure and add ingredients safely while machine is running.

Tamper - The PUSHER

Patented tamper for extreme processing power helps when preparing foods such as nut butters and frozen treats that need ingredients PUSHED into the blades.

Clean-Up

Quick and easy clean-up. Just add a few drops of dish soap, some warm water and run for 30 seconds on high. Done!

Whole Food Juices Drinks

Makes whole food juice that's full of fiber and flavor in under a minute. Green Smoothies are the BEST!

Fresh Cooked Soups

Cooks soup from scratch that's hot, hearty and satisfying in just 4 minutes.

Frozen Desserts

Makes frozen treats that are full of fruit and low in fat in only 30 seconds.

Freshly Ground Grains

Grind fresh whole grains into flour and knead dough for healthy home made bread in one 5-minute operation.

Cost

Just like all great kitchen tools, some are more expensive than others. But the redeeming feature is that the Vitamix CIA is a long-term investment in good health and worth every penny spent.

The Cons

The size of the Vitamix CIA Professional Series is huge and in most cases will not allow the pusher to be in place if stored on the countertop. The size of the unit also makes traveling with it cumbersome. And lastly, the price!


Recommendation

After careful consideration and use, I find the Vitamix CIA Professional Series to be powerful and never disappoints when creating any recipes. The tamper provides that little extra PUSH that makes the Vitamix CIA Professional Series a notch above the other blenders. The dial controls also provide another level of control to get everything blended well.
