Get that 'holy grail' Vitamix blender you've always wanted — it's $60 off at Amazon

Tired of chewing your smoothies and settling for homemade soups that aren’t even close to liquefied? Traditionally, you’d have to plunk down some serious (and we mean serious!) cash for the kind of professional-quality blender that can completely pulverize the starchiest vegetables, the seediest berries and the toughest of nuts. But no fear, Amazon has the Vitamix Explorian 48-oz Variable Speed Blender on sale for just $290 (down from $350) and it's smashing the competition, according to thousands of enthusiastic reviewers.

This powerhouse has ten variable speeds that let you blend anything from intentionally chunky salsa to a creamy puréed chowder with restaurant-level precision.

The Vitamix Explorian 48-oz Variable Speed Blender isn’t just a blender, though. It actually takes on the work of 12 other appliances too: a whole food juicer, food processor, stick blender, hand mixer, ice cream maker, ice crusher, meat grinder, chopper, cheese grater, peanut butter maker, fondue maker, and hot soup and sauce maker.

Want a creamy smoothie every morning? Want to prepare big batches of homemade soup for the winter? Trying your hand at homemade baby food or DIY ice cream? Using a Vitamix means you don’t even have to think about the quality of your results. Just toss in all your ingredients, and this kitchen icon delivers with no fuss and very little mess.

Shoppers who’ve made the switch to Vitamix say there’s no way they’ll ever go back to other brands.

One shopper shared: “The Holy Grail blender, y'all. I grew up with a Vitamix (big, tall, classic model), and since being on my own I have really missed it. I tried food processors (because they're cheaper), less expensive blenders, immersion blenders, etc. Nothing came close to what a Vitamix can do."

Another reviewer can't stop marveling at how easy it is to use. "This puts regular blenders to shame," they wrote. "Should, too, since the price is no small thing, and I waited a long time before buying this. But the value of this thing is being able to whip up foods you'd have to go out for, or buy in cans, and being able to control the ingredients so that they are fresh and without additives."

You’ll fall head over heels for this gadget. Fans have gushed about making dips, spreads, pancake batter, sauces and even things that seem impossible to blend. When you’re not using the Vitamix, it fits neatly inside your cabinet waiting for its next challenge. The 48-ounce container is BPA-free and it — along with the lid — are dishwasher-safe.

Simply put, the Vitamix Explorian 48-oz Variable Speed Blender is a low-maintenance, high-performance appliance that lives up to its legendary name and will quickly become the most trusted, reliable character in your kitchen — and right now, it’s yours for a steal!
