PREVIOSLY CALLED VITAMIX 4500
The new Vitamix Turboblend (2 Speed) Model 1782 has arrived and is very nicely improved with 5 product changes over the previous model:
1. New BPA-free Carafe made of Eastman Tritan material. There has been a great deal of bad press out there on BPA and polycarbonate containers. Vitamix moved to make this carafe change proactively around all of the negative news on BPA lately.
2. New lid-locking mechanism allows for anyone to take off the lid easier than before. We have tried this and it is much easier to remove; the old Vitamix Turboblend (2 Speed) Model 1782 lid was difficult to remove once pressed hard into the carafe.
3. New Healthy recipe book. The recipe book has been dressed up and cleaned up to focus on healthier options.
4. New cooler running, more efficient 2 Peak HP motor. Same specs, just runs cooler - especially important when running for extended periods for making soup.
5. New "fade" faceplate graphics.
Vitamix Turboblend (2 Speed) Model 1782 TurboBlend Blender
The Vitamix Blender Legacy: In the eighty years that Vitamix has been building high-performance blenders, they've established the Vitamix Blender as the world's premier high speed food processing machine. Commercial Vitamix blenders are the standard in restaurants and juice bars across the U.S., and Vitamix blenders have revolutionized myriads of kitchen tasks for hundreds of thousands of home gourmets, worldwide.
A Superior Class of Blender: The Vitamix Vitamix Turboblend (2 Speed) Model 1782 is a commercial-quality blender with power that's far beyond ordinary blenders. Its blades turn at 37,000 peak revolutions per minute... or 240 miles per hour! And even more importantly, its extremely powerful 11.5 amp motor develops 2 peak horsepower to keep the blades spinning at high speed even under heavy loads. This combination of speed and power is why the TurboBlend gives you the smoothest possible textures, in just seconds. Where lesser blenders leave unblended chunks, seeds and strings, the Vitamix TurboBlend produces silky smooth results, in less time. You'll prepare smooth-textured foods with consistent quality — and do it faster! And because the TurboBlend's blade power literally explodes individual plant cells, more flavor and nutrition are released for healthier, tastier foods. The Vitamix Vitamix Turboblend (2 Speed) Model 1782 Turboblend includes a smoothie stick which, when inserted, accelerates carafe contents for even faster results. Carafe is made of Tritan copolyester.
Multi-Task Versatility: You may never find a machine that excels at more tasks than the VitaMix blender. Use it for Drinks... Appetizers... Breakfasts... Dips... Dressings... Sauces... Butters... Raw Foods... Soups... Spreads... Batters... Desserts... Marinades... and more!
Capacity: The Vitamix Vitamix Turboblend (2 Speed) Model 1782 comes with a huge 64 ounce carafe. Its special tapered design lets you do amounts as small as you need, but when you want to do a full load of veggies, fruit, ice cream, or crushed ice, the Vitamix Turboblend (2 Speed) Model 1782 will hold it all one one batch — and it has the power to chop, grind, puree or liquefy big batches. It also works just as well with small amounts, as little as 4 ounces.
Laser-Cut Blades: Laser-cut one piece stainless steel blade. Blade assembly of the Vitamix TurboBlend features ball bearings that outlast common bushings and are sealed to prevent food and liquid penetration.
Self Cleaning: After blending most types of ingredients, just put in 2 drops of dish soap with 5 cups warm water and run on high for 30-60 seconds: The powerful Vitamix Vitamix Turboblend (2 Speed) Model 1782 cleans itself. You don't even need to remove the blades!
Great Warranty: The Vitamix TurboBlend is backed by an outstanding 5-Year manufacturer's warranty!
