Product Notes:

Unlock Your Culinary Creativity

If all you have to blend with is blades, everything gets puréed, more or less. But what if you want to use your blender to produce some different textures, to leave some bits of fruit intact when mixing cocktails or incorporating berries into whipped cream, or to introduce a lot of air into the mix to create foamed drinks, whipped desserts, or emulsified sauces? For just such occasions, Vitamix developed a new spinning mechanism: the Aer disc (named after its principal function - aerating).

Compatibility

This new 48 ounce Aer Disc Container is compatible with nearly all of Vitamix's full-size machines (except for the "One"): it can not only work with virtually all of the contemporary full-size Legacy blenders (including the Classic C-series and the G-series such as the Professional Series 750), but also with the newer Smart System blenders (including the Ascents, the Explorian, and the Venturist).

Expand Your Blender's Capabilities

The Aer Disc has been specially designed to quickly accomplish a number of tasks that regular blenders either aren't very good at or can't really do at all, thereby saving you from either having to get other sorts of appliances (such as electric mixers with whisks or beaters or dedicated milk frothers) if you do these things regularly, or have to resort to doing things by hand with a great deal of time and effort (whether with hand whisks, for some tasks, or with mortars and cocktail shakers, for others).

Some of the main jobs it excels at are:

  • Making cocktails such as Mojitos: using the recommended speed settings and directions set out in the included recipe booklet along with the included tamper to push the fruit down towards the disc, this special container can extract the essential oils and juice from whatever fruits you are using while still leaving parts of it intact, and while also chilling the drinks with the ice you add without completely crushing it.
  • Making foamy drinks: Whether it's a single serving or a whole batch at once, it's fast and easy to make frothy café drinks or cocktails, either hot or cold, with an Aer Disc injecting air into it.
  • Making whipped toppings and desserts: whether it's a stiff whipped cream or dessert or a foamy topping for your cappuccino you're after, the Aer disc container makes it easy. With it, you can even make whipped cream out of no-fat milk!
  • Making creamy emulsions, such as Hollandaise sauce or Mayonnaise (even eggless varieties), and a whole series of other sauces, spreads, dips, and dressings, including partially crushed (rather than completely puréed) fresh fruit, vegetables, or herbs, where desired, to provide additional texture and bursts of flavour.

To accomplish these different tasks, one simply uses different speed settings and times, sometimes starting with all the ingredients at once, or sometimes introducing them at different stages, and sometimes involving the use of the tamper (generally when solid foods are involved).

For example, to make Chocolate Orange Mousse, one simply places 2 cups of heavy cream, 1/2 teaspoon of orange zest, and 1/4 cup of chocolate sauce in the container in that order; put the lid on; start the machine with the speed setting on 1, and slowly increase it to 10; and let it blend for about 40 seconds in all. That's it!

The Aer Disc container comes with a 3-year full warranty from Vitamix.

Composition:

The container itself and its lid are made of the same rugged BPA-free Eastman Tritan material as the regular Vitamix containers. The Aer Disc is made of stainless steel. The package also ships with a Low-Profile Tamper (the S2 model) to use for Muddling, and a Recipe Booklet, which shows which speed settings and times to use for each type of operation.

Storage and Cleaning:

• To avoid trapping moisture and possibly breeding bacteria in-between uses by keeping the lid on the container, Vitamix recommends that you either remove the lid plug portion from the lid when doing so, or that you thoroughly dry both the lid and the container before putting the lid on.

• The parts are dishwasher-safe. However, you may wash the parts in warm, soapy water, and rinse them clean under running water, and then dry them, if preferred or needed. To prolong container life, Vitamix recommends using soaps with a low pH balance, such as a standard liquid dishwashing detergent.

• To sanitize the container occasionally using bleach, the ratio for their recommended sanitizing solution is to add 1 teaspoon of household bleach into 2 quarts (16 cups) of water. Otherwise, use vinegar, with the ratio indicated in the Vinegar section below.

To Wash the Container on the Vitamix Machine Itself:
1. Fill the container half full with warm water and add a couple of drops of dish washing liquid.
2. Snap or push the complete 2-Part lid into the locked position.
3. Carry out the following control sequence:
 a. Make sure the Variable Speed dial is set to Variable Speed 1.
 b. Press the Start / Stop.
 c. Slowly increase variable speed to 10.
 d. Run the machine for 30 to 60 seconds.
 e. Rotate the Variable Speed dial back to Variable 1.
4. Rinse and drain all pieces.

To Sanitize: (With Bleach)

1. First follow one of the initial cleaning instructions above.
2. Fill the container half full of water and add 1 teaspoon of liquid bleach.
3. Snap or push the complete 2-part lid into the locked position.
4. Perform the following sequence:
 a. Make sure the Variable Speed dial is set to Variable Speed 1.
 b. Press the Start / Stop.
 c. Slowly increase variable speed to 10.
 d. Run the machine for 30 to 60 seconds.
 e. Rotate the Variable Speed dial back to Variable 1.
5. Allow the mixture to stand in the container for an additional 1-1/2 minutes.
6. Pour out the bleach mixture. Allow the container to air dry. Do not rinse after sanitizing.

To Sanitize: (With Vinegar)

1. First follow one of the initial cleaning instructions above.
2. In the container, dilute 16oz. of vinegar in 16oz. water.
3. Snap or push the complete 2-part lid into the locked position.
4. Perform the following sequence:
 a. Make sure the Variable Speed dial is set to Variable Speed 1.
 b. Press the Start / Stop.
 c. Slowly increase variable speed to 10.
 d. Run the machine for 30 to 60 seconds.
 e. Rotate the Variable Speed dial back to Variable 1.
5. Allow the mixture to stand in the container for an additional 3 full minutes. Total contact time of the vinegar solution in the container should equal 5 minutes.
6. Pour the vinegar solution out of the container over the inside surface of the 2-part lid. Repeat the sanitization procedure a second time.
7. Allow the container and lid to air dry. Do not rinse after sanitizing. If necessary, rinse immediately before the next use.
