The 1363 Vitamix Blender – Is It Worth It?

The platinum Vita-Mix 1363 CIA blender is a very popular product — but is it worth it? This model was specially designed for students to use at the Culinary Institute of America.

With it, you can make great fruit smoothies, veggie drinks, pesto, and soups. Baby food is another thing you can make, so instead of buying pre-processed food in a jar, you can always make your baby’s food fresh! In fact, this blender can make any concoction you like in 10 minutes or less.

The platinum Vita-Mix 1363 blender is very easy to clean and all it will take is some warm water and a couple drops of dish soap. Then turn on the blender for about 30 seconds, empty into the sink, then rinse really well and set out to dry. This is very simple to clean because most other blenders, you will find that you would have to take apart in order too clean properly, but you don’t have to take anything apart in order to clean with this model. It really becomes its own dishwasher!

The smoothies themselves always turn out smooth and creamy no matter what you add. So, everything that you make, including ice cubes, will always become pulverized. This blender is so easy to use that you will want to look up different recipes to create with this blender.

With the intense friction caused by fast-moving blades, grinding and chopping are no problem. Heating a homemade soup is as fast as if using a microwave. You will be eating very healthy food and you will be able to stay home and enjoy great home cooked meals instead of going out to eat at an unhealthy fast food restaurant. When you make these healthy meals it takes a lot less time when you make these healthy meals rather than driving to the nearest fast food joint.

Indeed, with the recipes that will be made with the Vita-mix, you will feel more energized and you will be able to do more activities in an average day.

Wondering about the difference between models? The 1363 CIA model is pretty much the same thing as the vita mix 5200 model except the CIA model has some different color choices and it also has a big recipe book and an hour long cooking DVD that comes with it. Both of the models have a 7-year warranty. The 5200 model has a different recipe booklet and DVD.

It’s great for the whole family, as well. Your kids will even want to try eating different kinds of veggies with this mixer and you won’t have to worry about telling them what’s in their smoothies because they will probably like the smoothies enough that they won’t even think to ask what’s in it.

Some of the recipes you will find are The Autumn Harvest which is made with sweet potatoes, and Basil lemonade which is made with fresh lemons and basil.

Some pros and cons:


1.) 7 year warranty.
2.) Easy to use.
3.) Easy to clean.
4.) Recipes take 10 minutes or less to make.
5.) The whole family will be eating healthy.
6.) Comes with a recipe book.
7.) makes both hot and cold substances.


1.) Very expensive.
2.) It’s smaller than the old version made in the 1990’s.

All in all, I do think this is a good buy. The warranty means you’re all set, should anything go wrong. If you follow the recipe book, the health benefits will more than make up for the initial cost.
