With its variable speed control, it can do many food tasks including four food processes that no other machine can do including Whole Food Juice, Ice Creams and Sorbets, Hot Soups and Sauces and is designed for maximum versatility in your home kitchen.
Product support literature with this blender includes the "Quickstart" DVD, the "Getting Started" cookbook, the Vitamix "Recipes for Better Living" filled with 300 recipes in a convenient three-ring binder. Order the Dry Jug (sold separately) and receive the "Whole Grains Cookbook".
The high impact BPA Free co-polyester jug provided has a large 2 litre capacity and a square base that gives the blades their unique cutting action. The sheer power of this machine means that the blades spin so fast (386kph) that the frictional heat generated can allow you to actually cook soup at the same time as homogenising it.
The Vitamix TNC blender is a very powerful and versatile machine which already deservedly enjoys a great deal of popularity amongst raw food enthusiasts and is equally at home in the more conventional kitchen. With the wet jug (supplied as standard) frozen desserts, smoothies and purees are fast and easy to make. Variable speed control means the blender is able to perform dozens of food processes at low speed without stalling, such as chopping, grinding, whipping, blending and stirring.
This machine is not just a blender or a juice extractor - it's so much more. The surgical stainless steel blades rotate at speed, pulverizing whole foods down to the cellular level. Valuable nutrients locked inside the pulp, skins and seeds of fruits and vegetables cannot be absorbed because the phytonutrients are trapped within plant cells which need to be ruptured. This blender ruptures the cell walls of fresh, whole foods to make these phytonutrients more bio-available. A recent study by the Health Research and Studies Centre showed that tomatoes processed in the Vitamix Total Nutrition Center delivered over three times more lycopene than tomatoes prepared in a juicer or eaten whole.
A whole foods diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains is the key to a long and healthy life. Creating terrific-tasting, nutrient-rich whole food meals with this machine is the fastest and easiest way to do that.
Juiceland Says about the Vitamix Total Nutrition Center
The original power blender, excellent performance and the cheapest full size blender in the Vitamix range. This will do anything that the other blenders will do but it is uses the taller profile container.
