Tired of chewing on your smoothies and settling for homemade soups that aren’t even close to liquefied? Traditionally, you’d have to plunk down some serious cash for the kind of professional-quality blender that can completely pulverize the starchiest vegetables, the seediest berries, and even the toughest of nuts.
Right now, QVC has slashed 39 percent from the price of a top-shelf Vitamix Explorian 48-oz Variable Speed Blender that smashes the competition, according to enthusiastic reviewers. This powerhouse has ten variable speeds that let you blend anything from an intentionally chunky salsa to a creamy purée with restaurant-level precision. And it’s $192 off!
The Vitamix Explorian 48-oz Variable Speed Blender isn’t just a blender, though. It actually takes on the work of 16 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, hot soup and sauce maker.
And this model comes with accessories, too! It includes the Vitamix Explorian E310 base, 48-oz wet container, 32-oz dry container, tamper, ‘Whole Grains’ cookbook, and ‘First Blends’ cookbook.
Want a creamy smoothie every morning? Want to make big batches of pureed 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.
“On first blend, I knew I had a new love in my life,” one fan wrote. “This Vitamix literally does it all. When you turn up the dial to higher speeds you begin to sense the real power this thing has. And it doesn't get louder, just stronger! Smoothies come out SMOOTH.”
“This machine is a workhorse in my kitchen!,” wrote another enthusiastic customer. “Nothing else compares to a Vitamix and that’s the bottom line! It does everything a food processor, blender can do and more! I’ve made ice cream, nut butters, smoothies and more!”
One customer preferred the Vitamix Explorian over its peers — particularly the Ninja. “With my Ninja, I always had fruit/veggie particles that settled to the bottom after making smoothies. This does not happen with my Vitamix. I always get a smooth, well blended smoothie right down to the very last gulp! I couldn't be happier!,” they wrote. “I really see the Vitamix difference.”
Not a smoothie lover? You’ll still 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 blending challenge. Both containers are BPA-free and 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!
