Vitamix CIA Professional Series Blender Review
There is hardly any debate when it comes to the best smoothie maker brand available today. You can ask anybody who knows a thing or two about blenders, and the same brand will come up. Vitamix blenders can be compared with an exotic car, its expensive to purchase but if money is not an issue it delivers the best performance and enjoyment. Vitamix blenders range anywhere from 300 to 900 dollars, our favorite being the Culinary Institute of America line blender which falls right in the middle of that price range.
Vitamix has partnered with the Culinary Institute of America to provide a professional line of appliances. This series of appliances meets the demand of professionals and master chefs.

The response about this blender is amazing and higher than I initially expected. Through Amazon.com it receives 4.7/5 stars! Wow, and that’s with over 70 reviews of this product alone. Previous buyers love the look and feel of the blender. Many were skeptical about the quality of smoothies this unit would make, but after creating just one they instantly changed their minds and became hooked! Cleaning the unit is quick, most consumers report being able to clean it in under 30 seconds. Only few negative things were reported about this Vitamix Blender. It is loud, you probably wouldn’t want to use it if somebody is sleeping in the house. It is expensive, but many end up agreeing that its worth it. Its hard to spend almost $500 on a blender, but personally this is the ONLY BLENDER i’d ever spend that kind of money on.
