As the Vita Mix CIA 1709 Professional Series Blender - Brushed Stainless was designed by top chefs, meaning actual, working chefs, you can trust that when you need something mixed, ground, or blended, you know you can get the job done. Designed with a simple and intuitive multi-power system, this blender can handle all of your standard liquid-blending needs in the 48-ounce container, but when you need to grind dry grains or simulate the motion of kneading, you can swap it out for the 38-ounce container - and you're on your way to fresh bread. The stainless steel housing isn't just there for looks, as any chef will tell you that toughness equals longevity, and stainless steel is in it for the long haul. Open up one of the three included cookbooks and let CIA-trained chefs show you how to make the most of this versatile, countertop blender.
