Create every course of your home-cooked meal-from frozen drinks to creamy desserts-in minutes. The Vitamix 5200 is the universal tool for family meals and entertaining.Blending too long at too low a speed setting will overheat the machine and cause the Automatic Overload Protection to turn the machine off. Use the High speed as often as possible to achieve the most uniform consistency. Blending on High speed also maximizes the motor’s cooling fan to avoid overheating.When making nut butters or oil-based foods, do not process for more than one minute after the mixture starts to circulate in the container. Processing for longer periods can cause dangerous overheating.
The size and shape of the Classic 64-ounce container is ideal for blending medium to large batches. The blades in the Vitamix container reach speeds fast enough to create friction heat, bringing cold ingredients to steaming hot in about six minutes. With a drop of dish soap and warm water, your Vitamix machine can clean itself in 30 to 60 seconds.
