Vitamix Explorian Blender, Professional-Grade (Renewed) [Review]


Blenders offer an opportunity for one to change their lifestyle, lose weight, and eat healthier. With many brands making blenders on the market today, you can easily get confused as to which one suits your needs and budget. However, you can never go wrong with blenders from Vitamix.

Vitamix has been making blenders since 1921 and continues to put out new innovative products every year. The Explorian is their newest model and is already becoming popular thanks to the wide variety of features it boasts of.

It is offered at a relatively cheaper price than previous models and was introduced to give an opportunity to blender shoppers who are looking for a more affordable blender that is not only durable but also effective.

Features That Makes Vitamix Explorian Blender Stand Out

Low profile container
Traditionally, Vitamix used to have massive containers for their blenders which was making it difficult to store the whole unit in a modern kitchen cabinet. However, they have innovated a shorter container, rather than tall, to make them compatible with modern cabinet.

The squat design also makes blending easier as ingredients fall into the blades easily thereby making the blending process smoother.

This unit has a 64-ounce low profile container that suits the blending needs of a large family.

Self-cleaning mode
The boring part of preparing and drinking smoothies is having to clean up the blender afterward. It is for this reason that this model features a self-cleaning mode. All it takes to clean Vitamix Explorian Blender is some hot water, a drop of soap, and less than a minute. 

Of course, you will need to wipe it out afterward to give it a sparkling clean look, but the unit does most of the legwork.

Variable speed settings
This model features ten variable speed controls that allow you to refine every juice to the texture you need for culinary precision; you can prepare the smoothest of purees as well as heartiest soups.

Want to prepare a cold ice cream? It is possible with this unit; you just need to set it on the slower setting. If you need to prepare some piping hot soup, the Vitamix Explorian has you covered. Higher speed settings produce more power and thus can turn cold ingredients hot.

In addition to speed settings, this blender also features a pulse mode. Pulse features are common to most modern blenders, but it is a relatively new feature in Vitamix blenders. With a pulse feature, you will find it easier to make more nuanced foods such as hummus and chunky salsa.

Vitamix Explorian blender features hardened stainless steel blades that ensure even the toughest of ingredients are cut down into tiny slices and eventually made juicy. Besides, they remain sharp for a long time.


  • Has a low-profile container for easier storage

  • Can warm soup thanks to higher speed settings

  • It is easy to clean thanks to the self-cleaning feature

  • You can easily find its spare parts since Vitamix is a recognized brand

  • This unit is relatively affordable

  • The container and lid are made from BPA-free material and are dishwasher-safe


  • It lacks a unique appearance

  • It cannot handle tough ingredients for a long time as the blades are not as strong as those in high-end models

While this may not be the best blender by Vitamix, it does give blender shoppers an opportunity to get a valuable unit at a relatively cheaper price. The features are great, and speed settings allow one to handle different blending needs.

If you are looking for a durable, affordable blender that doesn’t compromise on performance, then Vitamix Explorian Blender is definitely something you can consider.
