Coming in 4 separate colors, the vitamix 1363 professional series is a simple looking blender with 2 switches and a dial to change speed on the user interface. Although the design makes this blender look fairly understated, when you turn it on, that all changes.
With a 64 ounce container the 1363 will produce just under 2 liters worth of liquid, and I do mean liquid. This machine can be lethal. With a 2-peak horsepower motor blades can reach speeds of 240mph, this means whatever the solid is, it won’t be solid for long. It can chop, blend, cream, whip, grind and churn such is the 1363’s flexibility.
The blades are cut by lasers for precision sharpness and are stainless-steel 3 inches long. This means all the contents will be blended consistently in the bottom top and the sides of the 64oz container.
The Vitamix 1363 CIA Professional Series is pretty much its own dishwasher, just squirt some dish soap and water into the blender and run it for less than a minute!
Lastly, it’s ergonomic design is proven by the spill-proof vented lid so ingredients can be added while blending, very smart feature!
Trusted by professional chefs and major restaurants to create a variety of fresh, flavorful dishes from solid ingredients.
We placed almonds in the Vitamix 1363 and let it blend on full power for 30 seconds, we then added a small amount of butter and turned it back on a slightly lower setting, the results? Excellent quality smooth almond butter. Considering this took less than a minute it proves the power and efficiency of the blender. It was easy to clean and ready to make a banana, strawberry and lime smoothie!
Amazon reviews and rating
If you needed any more convincing whether the Vitamix 1363 CIA justified its price the reviews will confirm its ability. It has a superb 4.8 stars from 5, with an even more impressive 86% of the 490 reviews giving the full 5/5.
One quote from a reviewer states ‘ It does an incredible job of liquefying vegetables, including the ones that often don’t want to completely liquify in other blenders, like the skins of tomatoes. You can toss in whole garlic cloves, peel and all, and it renders them into a smooth paste with no lumps or bits of skin to get in the way.’ There are a couple of reviews that claim it’s too big a blender however you can’t please everyone.
Overall the Vitamix 1363 is expertly made and sure to help in many kitchen tasks, it’s durability and proficiency certified with vitamix’s 7 year warranty. 10 out of 10.See Amazon Reviews
