Barely Representational Reviews the Vitamix 6300 (aka the Food Wood-Chipper)
How good is the Vitamix 6300? It’s so good it’s earned a nickname in our family: the Food Wood-Chipper. It can handle anything. Is it the cheapest blender? No. Is it the best blender? Yes! If all you ever mix is the occasional frozen margarita, maybe you can get away with a cheapo blender. (No you can’t. Ice will ruin most blender’s blades, but the Food Wood-Chipper handles ice like a dream.)
There are juicers, which extract the juice but don’t give you the fiber, and there are other blenders, which have sharp blades so you’re always worried you’ll cut yourself cleaning them. And then there’s the Vitamix. It’s also perfect for hiding vegetables to serve to your unsuspecting family.
It comes with a 345 page recipe book, with recipes for everything from soups and sauces to breads and breakfast. Of course, in my opinion the place where the Food Wood-Chipper really shines is smoothies. This thing can turn anything into a delicious smoothie.
If you’re like me and could easily see yourself eating one or more meals a day through a straw, then do yourself a favor and get a Food Wood-Chipper.

Then the dimmer switch happened and you could adjust the brightness to meet your seductive needs and suddenly everyone looked a little better in the gentler light. And now your luminary universe […]
Projects will always need management. And now with the tech gold rush it feels like there are more projects than ever with fewer managers than there’s demand for. But it takes too much time and money to go back to school full time so luckily the Project Management Professional certification training course is now 96% […]
If you’ve been blessed enough to avoid them yourself, you’ve definitely heard the horror stories. Late night, crushing out a ton of work, writing, coding, anything, then boom – your computer crashes. The battery blows, you spill water or coffee all over the place, or it just shuts down with no explanation, and you’re screwed. […]
