The Vitamix Vita-Prep Commercial Food Blender is an ideal power tool for commercial kitchens. The variable speed control allows for chopping, grinding, puréeing or blending dense ingredients at exactly the right speed. The versatile Vita-Prep blender is a must in busy kitchens where volume, consistency, and quality are essential. The Vita-Prep blender’s 2-peak output horsepower motor can deliver excellent performance through the demands of a commercial kitchen, blending even the toughest whole-food ingredients with ease. The manually-operated dial provides precise speed control to regulate the texture of ingredients from a coarse chop to the smoothest purée. The tamper allows you to blend thick and frozen mixtures without stopping the machine. In addition, its collar is specially designed to prevent it from coming in contact with the blades. Its durable 64-oz high-impact container comes with a removable lid plug, making it easy to add ingredients while blending.
