The Vitamix A2500 blender offers three program settings to make flawless smoothies, hot soups & frozen desserts. Each program automatically adjusts to the size container selected, processes the ingredients & stops the blender when complete. Variable speed control allows you to refine textures, from chunky soups to baby food. Use the pulse feature for a burst of power to chop ingredients and knead bread dough. A built-in digital time helps take the guesswork out of recipes, and the included tamper presses down on thick and frozen mixtures toward the blades with no need to stop and scrape the sides of the container.
