Rated 5 out of 5 by Carrie Marie from Best hollandaise! This was the first time I've made hollandaise sauce and it was probably the best I've ever tried. It was incredibly silky and smooth and never became gloppy, even after cooling. I used 1/2 the amount of salt and subbed in salted butter. I would recommend having a towel handy when pouring the butter because it did splatter some. I am saving this recipe and will definitely make it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Ancient Mariner from Quick and precise Just tried this for an eggs benedict on Christmas morning. It's really easy to make and really really tasty. Don't leave too long before serving because it thickens up quite quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Perth foodie from Not Suitable for Professioinal Series 750 Tried this in the Professional Series 750, but due to the wider base of the container the initial placing of ingredients in the Vitamix container did not cover the blades. So the sauce did not emulsify properly. I think this sauce could be lovely as the flavours were nice; even in a thin sauce.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rinker250 from Too lemony! Good, basic recipe. Easy and quick. HOWEVER....As velvety and smooth as it turned out, it was too lemony. I will cut the lemon juice AND salt in half next time. And kick up the cayenne a notch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jenniec from Waste of ingredients This recipe isn’t for all vitamix machines. The first ingredients didn’t reach the blade so the sauce never thickened.
