How to Tell the Difference Between the Popular Vitamix Models

With a manufacturer like Vitamix that has such a great reputation across their entire line of commercial blenders, mixers, and frozen drink machines, it can be complicated to determine which unit is right for your foodservice operation.

Whether you're a smoothie bar in Seattle or a salsa prep chef in Portland, there's a Vitamix model that's likely suited better for your unique operation or task. Let's take a quick look at three of our most popular Vitamix models.

The Vitamix Vita-Prep® 3

With a stronger motor than the original Vita-Prep, the Vita-Prep 3 can go from chopping delicate ingredients to blending tough purées. It is the ideal tool for supporting high-volume demands in Pacific Northwest kitchens, including processing difficult, back-to-back blends.
