This unit also features an electronic sensor that will maintain continuous and smooth speed so that your smoothies achieve the perfect consistency.

The Viking blender is powerful enough to process many ingredients and is a great kitchen assistant to make anything from soups, dog food and frappucinos to smoothies and sauces. The only limits to this unit lie in your creativity in the kitchen because there is little it cannot handle.

Features

The Viking Blender features a strong, high-torque motor that is designed for the rigors of commercial use. It is a unit that can be disassembled to be cleaned quickly and easily, with a heavy metal base and rubber feet that make it very stable.

With a 40 ounce glass carafe this unit is an excellent option for any home and will provide you with smoothies and mixed drinks for many years. The unit is short enough to fit under most standard kitchen cabinets.

Advantages

This blender is a strong unit that can deliver professional results and it can handle many tasks that other blenders find too tough to deal with. It can be used for chopping even harder ingredients such as broccoli, carrots, chocolate, hard cheeses and even ice.

The unit not only chops these ingredients, but it does it with ease and little complaint from the motor and even peanut butter isn’t a challenge for this blender. It is even designed to fit comfortably under most kitchen cabinets, so that it doesn’t overcrowd valuable work space on your counter tops.

It is an elegant and simple machine, with two speeds and a pulse option as it requires little else. A durable, high quality and reliable unit, the Viking blender will be with you for many years and will become an indispensable tool in your kitchen.

Disadvantages

You may find that if you put in all your ingredients at once, the unit will not perform. As owners discovered, the best way to use this unit is to feed it ingredients slowly so it is not a set and forget blender in which you can throw everything and get back to doing other things. However, this is a small price to pay for the excellent consistency of your results and its capacity to go through literally anything.

The main disadvantage of this unit is the price, but quality will always demand a higher price. In fact, if you work out how many lower quality blenders you have gone through over the years you may find that you will end up saving money in the long run by spending a little more now.

The Viking will outlast most blenders easily and instead of purchasing sub-par units for less but having to replace them every year or two, you will only have to swipe your credit card once for a very, very long time. There is a saying along the lines of “we are too poor to buy cheap items” which is quite fitting in this case as well.

Summary

As with any product there will be those who love it and those who hate it. However the general impression was that this is a high-quality unit that delivers on its promises, especially for those who use a blender frequently.

Before you buy, though, make sure that you need the power the Viking blender provides because the relatively high price will make it a very expensive decoration if used infrequently.
