Vitamix Shopping Guide
It Began with a Blender
Vitamix began in 1937 when William Grover Barnard, a door to door salesman, was introduced to the blender. Barnard spent his time selling blenders door to door and designing his own concepts. The Vitamix became the subject of the first ever infomercial in 1949. Since then the Vitamix company has been passed down through the Barnard family. The Barnards have changed their product many times since the original design and continue to develop it. Vitamix has a commitment to nourishing healthy bodies. They also take pride in educating people on the importance of plant-based whole foods. The Vitamix Foundation has contributed to research projects that study how plant-based whole foods can prevent and cure illnesses. While all Vitamix products are produced in the United States, they are sold in retailers and online throughout North America, the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, and Asia.
Vitamix is known for their top of the line blenders. The blenders are categorized into food preparation blenders, beverage blenders, or combination blenders. Their range of blenders can also be categorized into the traditional kitchen or commercial venue blenders. Vitamix also sells blender accessories, cookbooks, and kitchen tools.
