With the same enduring quality and trusted blending performance that has made Vitamix an icon in the kitchen, the E310 Explorian Series blender offers Variable Speed Control and Pulse to create a wide variety of textures, and a 48-ounce container that fits easily below overhead cabinets. Blades are laser-cut from hardened stainless steel to consistently deliver the same quality blends for years to come. Metal drive system securely joins the container and motor base for maximum durability. Much more than a blender, Vitamix machines let you explore more than 10 different culinary techniques, from silky smoothies to textured sauces and steaming soups to frozen desserts, all made with healthy, whole-food ingredients. 5 – year full warranty covers parts, labor, and return shipping both ways.
