If you ask any home cook what the greatest blender money can buy is, they’ll almost certainly say a Vitamix (even if they’ve never used one or seen one in action). The American corporation takes a thorough approach to every model, new and old, accounting for design, multi-functionality, customer service, warranty, and ease-of-use.
The E310 model from Vitamix’s Explorian range, which was introduced in 2017, is a response to the pressure that came from rivals who were selling blenders with comparable power for far less than Vitamix’s asking price. The E310 is Vitamix’s first deliberate attempt to decrease the entry point for a full-sized, powerful blender. It is $100 less expensive than the 5200 and claims nearly comparable blending prowess.
The Vitamix Explorian E310 10-Speed Blender includes a 48-ounce container with notches along the edges for measurements in cups, ounces, liters, and milliliters, a rubber lid with a removable plastic dome, a small tamper that fits right into the undomed top to stir the ingredients while the blender is running, and a substantial base that houses a 2-horsepower motor.
There are no difficult components to unscrew for cleaning this blender, and you can even wash the container by just adding hot water and dish soap to it and running the machine until it is thoroughly sudsy. Additionally, this particular Vitamix model comes with a 5-year guarantee that covers parts, labor, performance, and return shipment in the event that something goes wrong.
Pros and Cons
- Lowest priced Vitamix you can buy today.
- It has the ability to produce results just like any other blender line. Do not be deceived by the low price.
- It has a 5-year warranty that may be upgraded to an 8-year warranty.
- You can use it essentially without having to read the user manual. There is a pulse button, changeable speed from 1 to 10, and an on/off switch. The time it takes to become an expert is exactly 30 seconds.
- Since it only has manual controls, set-and-forget mixing is not possible.
- Compared to the newest Ascent blenders, it isn’t as quiet.
The Vitamix E310 is the ideal blender for anyone looking to replace a Classic-Series model like the 5200 that is worn out or broken or who is purchasing their first high-performance blender.
Finally, Vita-Mix created a Vita mix blender with a smaller container and lower height in response to market demand.
Because the E310 controls are so basic, a novice can rapidly become proficient with the mixing on an E310.
The #1 top issue about Vitamix’s costing more than $500 is addressed with the Explorian E310. The cost is in the $300 to $400 area. And that applies to a brand-new, unused model.
