This first immersion blender from Vitamix has precision design and powerful performance you can trust. With a 625-watt motor and 5 speeds, you can create ideal textures from whole-foods like greens and frozen fruit, while blending in your favorite container. The blender is easily operated with one hand, allowing you to add ingredients with the other. And the specially designed bell guard reduces suction, allowing ingredients to flow easily through the blades, protecting your pots, pans and containers from scratches. You can blend in an container with a 3-inch wide (or larger) opening, such as a smoothie cup or a 1-quart wide-mouth Mason jar.
