If you relying on your own cooking a lot, it’s not a bad time to consider upgrading your kitchen essentials. We couldn’t help but notice that the chef-beloved Vitamix 5200 Blender is close to $300 off today only for Amazon Prime Day (the cheapest you’ll likely find it all year)—it’s the high-powered, professional-grade blender that home cooks love for its stainless-steel blades that whip through ingredients, like frozen fruit, with ease to make smoothies and gazpachos at home. Or, as writer Audrey Bruno puts it, “the smoothest smoothies, silkiest soups, and most perfectly chunky pestos.” No wonder the Vitamix blender is a staple on wedding registries (and a dream housewarming gift for everyone else).
This model is especially easy to self-clean with some dish soap and water on its highest setting (no putzing around in the sink) and has a 64-ounce pitcher that can hold a family-size batch of soup, if you’re meal prepping. The blades are also so fast that they create heat friction, which can turn a cold soup steaming hot in a matter of minutes. And with over 5,000 glowing reviews, you wouldn’t have to take our word for it. You could consider investing in your home cooking to be an excellent form of self-care, and we’d have to agree with you.
