The Vitamix 6300, Product Overview
Each and every morning looks just about the same in terms of what I eat. With my breakfast, I have a healthy and nutritious juice and vegetable shake and it is an absolute breeze to put together and I eat more vegetables and fruit in one sitting than I used to in an entire day. It has a 64 oz container which allows you do do create larger batches of your favorite Vitamix recipe. The Vitamix 6300 is a commercial grade, 2 horsepower blender that drives a blade up to 240MPH. This liquefies the toughest of the tough, from bones to avocado pits! It creams, chops, churns, and even heats all within a single unit. It is sheer power and in I am going to be walking you through some of my personal “favorite” aspects of the Vitamix 6300 within this review.
Sure it’s an Expensive Blender, But the Cost Savings Are Unreal
I used to quite regularly buy “juices” from the market and the grocery store (Oswalda, Happy Planet, etc). A small container of these juices could cost me up the $9 per and would only be enough for one serving with my breakfast. Over the course fo the month, these add up very quickly. On averages I as spending $100+ per month on these juices, not to mention heading out to a juice bar to grab a juice or buying pre-made protein shakes. Here is a sample shake that I made just the other day in my Vitamix. All of these things (and much more) can be done with raw ingredients in the Vitamix 6300 and you can literally liquify pretty much anything (even rock hard avacado cores) into a healthy, delicious drink (and do so for much cheaper. In fact, I worked out the other day that the average shake that I make costs me less than $0.90 and this is using primarily organic ingredients…which as we know are much more expensive. That is 10% of the cost of the drinks I was buying from the grocery store and a heck of a lot more healthy.
It’s Not Just Juices Though, It’s Everything
Peanut Butter. Guacamole. Unbelievable Baby food. Salsa. Ice cream. Protein Shakes. Pasta Sauces. Bread dough. And Even Soup! Yeah, the friction from this high powered blender actually will not only blend up beautiful tasting soups, it will heat them up so they are ready to serve. From Vegetables and spices to a healthy soup in less than 10 minutes. Just like momma’s home cookin! There are so many things far beyond just the”juicing” that you can whip-up in your Vitamix 6300 and those are just some of the more common ones. There are a lot of recipes online where you can actually watch people with their Vitamix (check out Youtube), put together their favorite recipes and walk you through them. The Vitamix website also has a number of recipes that you can follow. Here is just one example recipe of a Tomato, Onion & Cheese Soup (only 93 calories per serving). So it is great for juice, but it can offer you ideas for every meal throughout the day, including deserts!
Cleaning Up is a Breeze.
To put things into perspective, this is the 3 step process of cleaning up. Step 1: Put in a “drop” of dish soap and warm water Step 2: Run Vitamix on high for 30 seconds Step 3: Flip upside on towel to dry It really is as simple as that. And after a lot of use and blending all sorts of foods, one thing that I do to keep mine clean of any residue is to occasionally run some vinegar with water through it for 30 seconds. Cleans it up brand new. It really is low maintenance and there is never a need to have to fumble around with putting it in the dishwasher.
I am a believer in this product and I know many others that absolutely LOVE their Vitamix. One definitely drawback is the upfront costs to invest in a blender of this quality, but you do get what you pay for in this case. It comes backed with a 7 year warranty and it is not a throwaway like the $200 blenders tend to come. For the sake of your health (and potentially your families), eating foods that don’t come out of a box or a package and are raw ingredients are only going to do your health a favor…plus your taste buds. If this sounds appealing to you, I highly recommend that you pick up your own Vitamix. Costco runs offers on them all the time (if you have a membership), and if you are a big online shopper like myself, Amazon has the best deals on this blender.
