ABOUT THE BLADES
The Vitamix machine comes standard with the wet blade container. The blade is identified by a “W” for
wet. This blade is used for most of your recipes. Additional containers with wet or dry blades may be
purchased separately.
WARNING
Rotating Blades Can
Cause Severe Injury.
DO NOT reach into container
while machine is running.
W
Wet Blade Container: Designed for processing liquids, including juice, frozen mixtures,
sauces, soups, purees, batters, and for wet chopping. The wet blades can also process
grain and knead dough, but they are not quite as efficient as the dry blades in this
application. See instructions for dry container use.
W
D
Dry Blade Container: These blades are clearly marked “D” and are designed specifically
for processing dry materials such as grains, cereal, and coffee, and are also used for
kneading bread dough. The dry blades can NOT process liquids efficiently. If you prepare
herbs on a regular basis, you may wish to purchase a separate dry blade container.

TA M P E R
CAUTION
Rotating Blades Can Cause Damage.
Lids and tampers are not interchangeable between different
container styles, types, and sizes. Use the tamper that was
supplied with your machine.
How to Determine the Tamper that Can Be Used with Your Container
Each type of tamper is designed to be used safely and effectively with a particular container. If a tamper
came with your container, it is the correct tamper for the container. If a tamper did not come with your
container, or you want to determine if a tamper that you already have can be used with your new container,
please compare your container with the containers and matching tampers to the illustration below.
Before using the tamper during the blending process, verify that it is the correct tamper.
•
2,0 L (64 oz.) Short Containers use Tamper P / N 016041 that is approximately 9-¾ inches long.
•
2,0 L (64 oz.) Tall Containers uses Tamper P / N 000760 that is approximately 12-½inches long.
•
0,9 L and 1,4 L (32 oz. and 48 oz.) Containers use Tamper P / N 015033 that is approximately 11 inches long.
To verify that you are using the correct tamper, place the lid on an empty container, remove the lid plug and
insert the tamper. If it is the correct tamper it should easily fit into the opening but will not come in contact
with the blades no matter how you move the tamper inside the container. IF THE TAMPER TOUCHES THE
BLADES AT ANY ANGLE - DO NOT USE THE TAMPER WITH YOUR CONTAINER.
If you do not have the correct tamper for your container, call Vitamix Customer services at 1-800-848-2649 or
1-440-235-4840 or e-mail [email protected] to order a new tamper. If purchased outside the United States
or Canada, contact your local Vitamix Dealer.

• The container should not be more than two-thirds full
when the tamper is used during blending.
• To avoid overheating during blending, DO NOT use the
tamper for more than 30 consecutive seconds.
• If the food does not circulate, the machine may have
trapped an air bubble. Carefully remove the lid plug
while making sure the lid stays firmly in place. Release
the air bubble by inserting the tamper through the lid
plug opening.
• Holding the tamper straight down may not help the
ingredients circulate. If necessary, point the tamper
toward the sides or corners of the container. DO NOT

Use the highest setting called out in the recipe for as much of the processing time as possible to make
whole-food juices, soups, shakes, frozen mixtures, purées, nut butters, and for grinding grains. Processing
times will generally be less than one minute (most take less than 30 seconds). Higher speed provides
the best quality of refinement, breaking down ice, frozen fruit, whole fruits or vegetables, and grains to a
smooth, lump-free consistency.
Blending too long at too low of a speed setting will overheat the machine and cause the Automatic Overload
Protection to turn off the machine. Blending on higher speed maximizes the motor’s cooling fan to avoid
overheating.
If the mixture stops circulating, you may have trapped an air bubble. To resolve Insert the tamper through the
lid plug and stir until it “burps.” If this does not work, press the On / Off switch to stop the motor. Remove the
