CONGRATULATIONS !  and thanks to everyone for entering.

No other kitchen appliance can give you the performance, speed, power, durability, reliability – not to mention health-enhancing benefits – that you get with the Vita-Mix. This extraordinary machine does the work of 10 kitchen appliances with no attachments! It takes on over 50 “food feats”, including four unique processes that no other single kitchen appliance can handle. The Vita-Mix TNC makes juice from whole foods in a minute, cooks soup from scratch without a stove, makes delicious, healthy ice-cream in 30 seconds and even grinds grain and kneads the dough for you in one five-minute operation. And that’s just for starters.

  20. Kerry Phillips says:

    I love eating icecream and soup but I hate chopping onions!

    • Alison Whitehead says:

      To avoid crying when chopping onions, run them under cold water firs. chop off the top, cut in half, and leave the root end on to hold onto when, chopping. The skin can be taken off each half by running the knife around the base then chop lengthwase, not through the base then chop side ways to required thinness. Can get a very fine dice or slice this way and all the onion is chopped uniformely.
