Vitamix® 500 Professional High Power Blender Black

Product number: 18160

Truly amazing – Vitamix is so much more than just a blender, tackling 50 kitchen tasks in one machine. This appliance can make both ice cream in 30 seconds and soup from scratch in 5 minutes, it’s fast, powerful and unlike anything we’ve seen before. And, its results will seriously wow you…

  • It works quickly so nutrients are retained – unlike a juice extractor, it blends fruit and veg into fibre-rich, whole food juice in just one minute.
  • Cooks hot soup from scratch in under 5 minutes without chopping and peeling veg first – whole carrots and peppers can go in – seeds and all.
  • Almost instantly dices, chops or blends ingredients into salsas, dips and sauces – making everything from hummus and nacho sauce to peanut butter.
  • Makes fresh, home-made ice cream or frozen yoghurts and desserts in an amazing 30 seconds just by adding ice or frozen fruit. The blade action creates a larger frozen surface, so freezing happens almost instantly – there’s no time for the ingredients to melt!
  • Unlike conventional blenders, it smashes through ice cubes in seconds – perfect for smoothies and margaritas.
  • Grinds wet or dry ingredients – coffee beans can be ground in as little as 10 seconds.

The friction from the incredibly quick motor does all the work – there’s no heating element – the longer the 1200W motor is running, the hotter it cooks. Five minutes is all it takes to turn uncut, unpeeled veg into fresh, piping hot soup, ready to serve. Why have ready made? It would take longer than that to open a tin and reheat it in the microwave!

With Vitamix, there’s no need to prep fruit and veg before it goes in, and it works very quickly, which makes a huge difference from a health point of view as none of the nutrients are lost. Vitamix has the motor power, torque, speed and blade design to process the food so that you get all the goodness.

Blend, dry chop, wet chop, make frozen treats, heat, grind, knead, (making bread with the addition of the Dry Container), emulsify… tackling over 50 different tasks with variable speed settings, you’ll be simply astounded by Vitamix. And, after all that – it’s really easy to clean. Just half-fill with soapy water, switch on, then rinse the jug with clean water.

Supplied with one wet container - dry container available separately.

A really serious piece of kitchen kit, the Professional 500 takes Vitamix to an even higher level. As well as doing everything the Aspire already does (which, let’s be honest, is a lot!), this model has a larger-capacity jug – 2 litres – so you can speed through even the largest quantities of food. It also offers 3 pre-programmed functions – soup, sorbet and blend – so that whipping up your favourite dishes becomes even easier, a Pulse function to start and stop on demand, and an auto-shut-off so you can start blending and then walk away. And finally, its fingerprint-resistant, brushed stainless steel finish will look good in any kitchen.

"A year later & still looking good"

star star star star star

Had this about a year now and its used every day for smoothies, soups, ice cream etc, I love it!! It is a true work horse.

"Simply outstanding!!!"

star star star star star

Had this for a week now and a quick review is in order, this is an awesome blender. I wanted the tall skinny style jug as i am doing a lot of single serve work and the option is there for larger batches also. The presets are great for repetitive work like smoothies.Personally do not think it's overly noisy and it looks great with the brushed silver. Yes it's a fair size price tag but think about it...if it lasts at least 7 years then you have had your monies worth from a high performance machine and if you decide to sell you would get most of your money back anyway. Highly recommend!

"Vitamazing! Easily my best buy!"

star star star star star

I have been using this for months now and absolutely love it! I impressed my son and his partner so much on a visit it was like a food exhibition!We started with soup, then green smoothies, ice cream and a great dip! They were so impressed they bought one! Having the auto settings for smoothies, ice cream and soups is a great addition to this amazingly high powered machine. Its a whiz making cheese sauce for macaroni cheese and gratin dishes. I use mine more than once daily.I also invested in the smaller container for when I'm not making a batch and just something smaller.Highly recommended!

"Exceptionally Good Product"

star star star star star

I have only had this blender a few days and have already made tasty leek and potato soup, red pepper hummus and a lovely tangy smooth cheese sauce. It is noisy but there is no need to wear ear defenders! I have been able to dispense with other kitchen gadgets as this does the jobs of these and more. I thought long and hard before purchasing this expensive item and I'm absolutely delighted with it. I was a bit hesitant about it not being dish washer safe, but to clean you just blend water with a little washing up liquid and rinse. No brushes or cloths required.
