Vitamix Food Processor FAQ’s

Is Vitamix really worth the money?

The short answer is, yes. Vitamix blenders are worth it because they’re more powerful, durable, and versatile than the competition. Most reviewers and experts convey that, whether you’re blending a smoothie, soup, or making nut butter, no other brand can deliver the power and precision of Vitamix.

Is Ninja or Vitamix better?

These two blenders are nearly neck and neck in tests. The Vitamix scores slightly higher for making soup, but Ninja rates a little better for ease of use. They’re tied in the icy drinks, ice crushing, and noise tests.

How is a Vitamix different from a blender?

Most blenders work by selecting from a variety of preset speeds. But the Vitamix features the ability to manually control exactly how fast the blades rotate.

What is the difference between a Vitamix and a food processor?

Vitamix machines come with a blade optimized for blending liquids. Compared to a food processor blade, it will pulverize ingredients more, while the food processor blade does more slicing. Food processors have the advantage of additional cutting disks, which allow them to evenly slice and grate ingredients.

Can you use a Vitamix as a food processor?

Yes, you can use your Vitamix to do some food processor tasks. You can do some chopping and mixing, but cannot do any slicing. You have the option to obtain a food processor and extend the functionality of your Vitamix base. It’s cheaper than buying another food processor, takes up less space, and is easy to use.

What are the features of the Vitamix food processor?

  • Compatibility: It’s compatible with Vitamix Ascent and Venturist machines.
  • Compact Storage: Because the food processor uses the blender motor base, all you have to do is store is the top container. That makes it perfect for small spaces.
  • 12-Cup Bowl: Not too big and not too small, this is the most popular size to whip up a variety of recipes. And there are easy-to-read measurement markings on the side.
  • Powerful Motor: If you already have a Vitamix, you know the strength of the motor.  Now you can leverage that same awesome power for your food processor.
  • Blade Options: It can slice shred and chop with expert precision. There are two sizes of shredding blades, two sizes of slicing blades, and the standard S-blade for chopping. All blades are stainless steel.
  • Quick Release Button: A lever at the base of the container allows you to quickly remove the container from the base.
  • No Complicated Twist Lock: Most food processors have a twist-lock mechanism. But the Vitamix food processor uses its patented, wireless self-detect technology to automatically shut off if not safely assembled.
  • Dishwasher Safe: When you’re done making a recipe, just pop the container in your dishwasher.
