Steve Schimoler: Hello, I'm Steve Schimoler, professional chef and owner of Crop Bistro, in Cleveland, Ohio. I'm here to show you a new product that I'm truly excited about. I've used a Vitamix machine in my restaurant for over 25 years, and in my home forever. I didn't think the Vitamix machine could get any better but guess what? That's exactly what's happened here with the Professional Series 500.
We're going to make some quick, easy and interesting recipes, but first I want to show you all the new and exciting features. This blender is part pre-programmed ease and convenience, and that's what's new, and part variable speed creativity. That's what Vitamix has always been famous for. It's Vitamix commercial technology in a premiere household blender, and it's got this great brushed stainless look. You'll love it as much as I do.
Vitamix has engineered the favourite functions of both the home and professional chefs right into this Professional Series 500 so let's take a closer look. First the on/off switch, right down here, gives you the power. This small blue light lets you know that the power's on and you're ready to go. Now the start/stop switch up here activates this machine. You'll see how this works when we start creating delicious, healthy Vitamix treats.
Next, we have the all new pre-programmed settings of our three most popular applications. One for hot soups, then frozen desserts, and of course, smoothies. This is what I like to call Vitamix smart blending. These three settings make it easier than ever to make hundreds of simple gourmet recipes and insure a perfect blend every time. All you need to do is fill the Vitamix container with the ingredients listed in the recipe, select the setting and walk away, the 500 does the rest.
These three settings work for other kinds of recipes too, so don't be surprised if you're making peanut butter on your frozen dessert settings. These recipes are thoroughly chef-tested for spot-on results every time, and as always, you can trust Vitamix to get it just right. Now, this is the all-new pulse function that gives you unlimited control over the texture of your recipe results. This feature is particularly important for recipes like salsa, which I'l be making a little later so stay tuned for that.
Finally, your variable speed control. Right now, it's in the resting stage, it's when I move it over to one on the dial and push start that things really get going. This is where you get that signature Vitamix versatility. The Professional Series 500 has a continuous ramp from low to high and it's all in one smooth motion, a fantastic feature of this machine. Here is where you can really get creative, and as a professional chef that's what I really like.
