Vitamix utilizes the same blending technology that was originally developed for household machines in its commercial models. Commercial units are designed for applications in restaurant and foodservice businesses. Vitamix offers many different models and custom designs, tailored to the specific needs of each commercial client. Each commercial model has a National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) sticker, stating that it is certified for use in foodservice businesses. Commercial machines come with a three-year limited warranty and an operational manual. They are not accompanied by other support materials, such as cookbooks. Some commercial machines have 3-horsepower motors. The motor works in conjunction with the fan to help keep the machine cooler, thereby extending its life in a commercial application. Even under extreme household use, blenders will not see the use expected in most commercial applications.
