Although there had been a number of newer models introduced over the years, Vitamix’s most famous line of high-performance blenders remains to be the 5200. It debuted in the United States back in 2007 as the new and improved series 5000 which was highly popular at that time. To this day, the 5200 Vitamix Blender model is still the world’s best-selling product from the company.
Each and every Vitamix blender in the 5000-model lineup are created at the company’s Cleveland, Ohio headquarters. Although it is completely assembled in the United States, the 5200 Vitamix Blender comes with a Swedish-designed and manufactured motor. The package consists of a motor base with the color of choice, a blending container, a two-part lid, user guide, usage tips card, warranty certificate, cooking class-themed DVD, registration card, and recipe book.
The machine’s interface is at the front side of its base. It consists of a panel that has two levers on either side. The “soft-touch” rubber of these switches are durable and easy to use for operation. One switch is for speed control while the other is for turning it on and off.
The 5200 Vitamix Blender has an exterior base made of wear-resistant plastic. You can choose from colors such as black, white, platinum, red or the brushed-stainless finishes. Its 11.5 amp, 1380-watt motor is claimed to produce 2-peak horsepower. Although it is not stronger than the Vitamix 5000, its new motor is more efficient due to the engineering improvements developed for it. The Vitamix 5200 Blender was one of the top choices of Noah Kagan for blending things in his kitchen.
It has a large 64-ounce container that can blend medium to large batches at a time. You can also easily adjust the speed because of its texture, with the dial which you can rotate at any point while blending. Its patented design can be used to pulverize every ingredient for your recipe, even the smallest of seeds! Aside from that, the blades of this Vitamix Blender can reach very fast speeds that create friction heat. This allows cold ingredients to turn steaming hot in as little as six minutes. The product is BPA-free and is definitely worth the price.
