Using the word "emulsify" in conversation can be pretty impressive, but imagine how impressed your family and friends will be when you break out the Vita Mix 1710 Pro Series 500 Blender and slowly drizzle in a little olive oil to emulsify your own salad dressings. With the variable speed control and powerful motor, all the tricks of top chefs are available on your own countertop. Pre-set and variable power levels let you chop, mix and blend with the best of them, while the hardened blades of stainless steel and a shatter-resistant container safely contain and work the product. Cleanup is easy, allowing you to break open the included recipe book so you can get started all over again.
