One hundred years ago, our founder, Papa Barnard, traveled the country selling modern kitchen products. When he was introduced to the blender, he saw its potential to improve the way every person eats. The Vitamix machine was born, and with it, the beginnings of a whole-food movement. We've been perfecting blending technology ever since, building extremely versatile, high-performance machines that are as amazing as the people who use them.


It's bigger than blending, chopping, grinding and juicing. Every day, people harness the power of Vitamix to do incredible things.
