Tired of chewing your smoothies and settling for homemade soups that aren’t even close to liquefied? Traditionally, you’d have to plunk down some serious cash for the kind of professional-quality blender that can completely pulverize the starchiest vegetables, the seediest berries and the toughest of nuts.

But no more: Amazon has slashed the price of a top-shelf Vitamix Explorian 48-oz Variable Speed Blender that smashes the competition, according to thousands of enthusiastic reviewers. Available now for just $290 (down from $350), this powerhouse has ten variable speeds that let you blend anything from intentionally chunky salsa to a creamy puréed chowder with restaurant-level precision. Vitamix blenders rarely get discounted this deeply, and this is the lowest price on the 48-oz. model yet this year.

Plus, if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

The Vitamix Explorian 48-oz Variable Speed Blender isn’t just a blender, though. It actually takes on the work of 12 other appliances too: a whole food juicer, food processor, stick blender, hand mixer, ice cream maker, ice crusher, meat grinder, chopper, cheese grater, peanut butter maker, fondue maker, hot soup and sauce maker.

Want a creamy smoothie every morning? Want to prepare big batches of homemade soup for the winter? Trying your hand at homemade baby food or DIY ice cream? Using a Vitamix means you don’t even have to think about the quality of your results. Just toss in all your ingredients, and this kitchen icon delivers with no fuss and very little mess.

Shoppers who’ve made the switch to Vitamix say there’s no way they’ll ever go back to other brands.

One shopper shared: “The Holy Grail blender, y'all. I grew up with a Vitamix (big, tall, classic model), and since being on my own I have really missed it. I tried food processors (because they're cheaper), less expensive blenders, immersion blenders, etc. Nothing came close to what a Vitamix can do."

Another reviewer can't stop marveling at how easy it is to use.

"This puts regular blenders to shame," they wrote. "Should too, since the price is no small thing, and I waited a long time before buying this. But the value of this thing is being able to whip up foods you'd have to go out for, or buy in cans, and being able to control the ingredients so that they are fresh and without additives. Lemon ice/granita on a hot day? Done. It's stupid simple. Then we were on to blueberry sorbet in one minute using the frozen bag 'o berries. Now there's a dessert everybody will gobble up. Hot tomato soup becomes reality for lunch when you have leftover tomatoes sitting on your counter and some fresh basil leaves."

You’ll fall head over heels for this gadget. Fans have gushed about making dips, spreads, pancake batter, sauces and even things that seem impossible to blend. When you’re not using the Vitamix, it fits neatly inside your cabinet waiting for its next blending challenge. The 48-ounce container is BPA-free and it — along with the lid — are dishwasher-safe.

Simply put, the Vitamix Explorian 48-oz Variable Speed Blender is a low-maintenance, high-performance appliance that lives up to its legendary name and will quickly become the most trusted, reliable character in your kitchen — and right now, it’s yours for a steal!
