Vitamix 7500 Review Facts

What makes the Vitamix 7500 different from its competitors? Blenders are useful kitchen tools. They blend gravies, sauces, soups, frozen drinks, milkshakes, and smoothies. Many blenders on the market are basic, no-frills appliances. The Vitamix 7500 is an exception to the rule. It is powerful, effective, and versatile. The blender does more than blend drinks and smoothies. It grates and chops hard cheese and vegetables, churns nut butter, makes hot soup without heating on the stove and juices vegetables and fruits.

This blender has a motor that maintains a cool temperature and even torques to deliver consistent power needed to process almost anything, including items traditional blenders cannot. The stainless steel, aircraft-grade blades take on the toughest ingredients. The Vitamix container creates a controlled vortex that moves ingredients toward the blades for smoother and faster blending regardless of what is in the blender. A blender like this has a high price tag.

Settings

Settings

The blender as ten-speed settings. The dial in the middle has ten positions to adjust the motor and the blade speed. One is the lowest and ten the highest. Variable speeds permit the user to get the texture wanted for all ingredients put in the blenders. The more speeds a blender has, the more control the user has over the blend.

Low speeds are needed when rough chopping ingredients or if making salsa or adding texture to soup to attain the desired consistency. The also eliminate smoothie foam bubbles. Gradually shifting from a low to high speed allows the creation of original or modifications to a cookbook recipe.

The toggle on the left is a pulse toggle. It stays ‘up’ only when held in that position. The pulse toggle overrides the speed dial and causes the motor to run at high speed. It is used when operating at low speed and needing one or two seconds of high power.

Use

Use

Raw foods are turned into ice cream or sorbets, smoothies, and soup with the powerful Vitamix 7500. It blends shakes or smoothies from any type of fresh vegetable or fruit. The blender does a fantastic job when frozen food blocks, hard cheese, or nuts are added.

Cleaning

Cleaning

Then put on the lid and run the blender on low and slowly increase the speed to create soap bubbles that reach the lid. The walls of the blender will be clean. Rinse the blender, and it is ready to be used again.
