Vitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 26Wet-Blade Container: Designed for processing liquids, including juice, frozen mixtures, sauces, soup, purées, batter, and for wet chopping. The wet blades can also process grain and knead dough, but they are not quite as efficient as the dry blades in this application. See instructions for dry container use.

Vitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 27Dry-Blade Container: These blades are clearly marked “D” and are designed specifically for processing dry materials such as grains, cereal and coffee, and are also used for kneading bread dough. The dry blades CANNOT process liquids efficiently. If you prepare herbs on a regular basis, you may wish to purchase a separate dry-blade container.

TAMPER

Vitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 31CAUTION
Vitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 32Rotating Blades Can Cause Damage.
Lids and tampers are not interchangeable between different container styles, types and sizes. Use the tamper that was supplied with your machine.

How to Determine the Tamper to be Used with Your Container
Each type of tamper is designed to be used safely and effectively with a particular container. If a tamper came with your container, it is the correct tamper for the container. If a tamper did not come with your container or you want to determine if a tamper that you already have can be used with your new container, please compare your container with the containers and matching tampers in the illustration below. Before using the tamper during the blending process, verify that it is the correct tamper.

Vitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 33

  • 2.0 L (64 oz.) Short Containers use Tamper 016041, which is approximately 24.8 cm (9-¾ inches) long.
  • 2.0 L (64 oz.) Tall Containers uses Tamper 000760, which is approximately 31.8 cm (12-½ inches) long
  • 0.9 L (32 oz.) and 1.4 L (48 oz.) Containers use Tamper 015033 that is approximately 27.9 cm (11 inches) long.

To verify that you are using the correct tamper, place the lid on an empty container, remove the lid plug and insert the tamper. If it is the correct tamper, it should fit easily into the opening, but should not come into contact with the blades no matter where you move the tamper inside the container. IF THE TAMPER TOUCHES THE BLADES AT ANY ANGLE – DO NOT USE THE TAMPER WITH YOUR CONTAINER.
If you do not have the correct tamper for your container, call Vitamix Customer Services on +1 800 848 2649 or +1 440 235 4840, or e-mail: [email protected] to order a new tamper. If purchased outside the United States or Canada, contact your local Vitamix Dealer.

HOW TO USE THE TAMPER

Vitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 34 WARNING
Vitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 35Rotating Blades Can Cause Severe Injury.Vitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 36

  • DO NOT put hands, spatulas etc. into the container while the machine is running or while the container is still on the base.
  • Lids and tampers are not interchangeable between different container styles, types and sizes. Use the tamper that was supplied with your machine.

IMPORTANT:

Vitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 37

  • The splash disc (near the top of the tamper) and lid prevent the tamper from hitting the blades when the lid is secured properly in the locked position.
  • The container should not be more than two-thirds full when the tamper is used during blending.
  • To avoid overheating during blending, DO NOT use the tamper for more than 30 consecutive seconds.
  • If the food does not circulate, the machine may have trapped an air bubble. Carefully remove the lid plug, while making sure the lid stays firmly in place. Release the air bubble by inserting the tamper through the lid plug opening.
  • Holding the tamper straight down may not help the ingredients circulate. If necessary, point the tamper towards the sides or corners of the container. DO NOT try to force the tamper more deeply into the container.

HINTS FOR SETTING SPEEDS

Always start the machine with the left switch down in the Variable Vitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 38 position and with the center Variable-Speed Dial on 1. Slowly turn the Variable-Speed Dial to the desired speed depending on the recipe used. If a recipe calls for processing on High (Δ), slowly rotate the Variable-Speed Dial to 10 and then push the High/Variable Switch up into the High (Δ) position. Do not begin processing on Variable 10 or directly on the High (Δ) setting.

Process on the High (Δ) setting for as much of the processing time as possible to make whole food juices, soups, shakes, frozen mixtures, purées, nut butters and for grinding grains. Processing times will generally be less than one minute (most take less than 30 seconds). High ( Δ) speed provides the best quality of refinement, breaking down ice, frozen fruit, whole fruits or vegetables, and grains to a smooth lump-free consistency.

TIP: Blending for too long at too low a speed setting will overheat the machine and cause the Automatic Overload Protection to turn off the machine. Use the High (Δ) speed as often as possible to achieve the most uniform consistency. Blending on High (Δ) speed also maximizes the motor’s cooling fan to avoid overheating.

When on the High (Δ), if the food does not circulate, the machine may be overloaded or may have trapped an air bubble. Carefully remove the lid plug, while making sure the lid stays firmly in place. Release the air bubble by inserting the tamper through the lid plug opening. If circulation problems continue, reduce the machine speed. A lower speed may allow food to circulate when a higher speed does not. Once the food is circulating freely, increase the speed back to High (Δ) and continue processing.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Wet-Blade Container
Designed for processing liquids including juice, frozen mixtures, sauces, soups, purées, batters, and for wet chopping.

  1. Make sure that the Variable-Speed Dial is set to 1.
  2. Load the container before placing it on the motor base. Place liquids and soft foods in the container first, then solid items and, finally, ice. Although not necessary for blending, you may want to cut or break food into smaller pieces for more precise measuring of ingredients.
  3. Fasten the 2-part lid securely. Always use the complete 2-part lid when blending (unless the tamper is inserted through the lid plug opening). Make sure that the lid is securely latched, especially when blending hot ingredients.
  4. With the motor off, set the wet-blade container on the motor base by aligning it over the centering pad. Do not attempt to put a container on an operating motor base or to operate a motor base without a container properly in place.
  5. Start with the High/Variable Switch in the Variable Vitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 42 position. Always start your machine on Variable-Speed 1. Activate the machine by turning the On/ Off Switch to On (|) then slowly increase to the desired speed. Your container will shift and align itself.
  6. Take proper care when handling and processing hot ingredients and when making hot soup and sauces.

Escaping steam, splashes or contents may scald. To secure the contents, lock the lid and lid plug securely in place prior to operating the machine. Always start on Variable-Speed 1 and slowly increase to 10.
7. Due to the machine’s speed, processing times are much quicker than standard appliances. Until you are accustomed to the machine, count your time carefully to avoid over-processing.
8. After turning the machine off, wait until the blades completely stop before removing the lid or container from the motor base.

Dry-Blade Container
If purchased, your dry blade container should only be used for hard, dry materials such as grain, and for kneading dough.

  1. Make sure that the Variable-Speed Dial is set to 1.
  2. Fasten the 2-part lid securely. Always use the complete 2-part lid when blending (unless the tamper is inserted through the lid plug opening).
  3. With the motor off, set the dry-blade container on the motor base by aligning it over the centering pad. Do not attempt to put a container on an operating motor base or to operate a motor base without a container properly in place.
  4. Start with the High/Variable Switch in the VariableVitamix Total Nutrition Center Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 46 position. Always start your machine on Variable-Speed 1. Activate the machine by turning the On/ Off Switch to On (|) then slowly increase to the desired speed. Your container will shift and align itself.
  5. After turning the machine off, wait until the blades completely stop before removing the lid or container from the motor base.
  6. Due to the machine’s speed, and the sometimes-short processing times, count your time carefully to avoid over-processing.
  7. Grinding dry material for more than two minutes could damage your machine. Regular use may result in cosmetic marring of the container and cause the blades to become dull over time.
  8. Grinding some herbs may release oils, causing the container to discolor permanently. Others have strong odors that may linger in the container, affecting the flavor of other foods. The grinding of some herbs and spices may also cause the blade to dull over time, or the container to crack.
