The Vita-Mix CIA Professional Series brings professional performance home.The home gourmet can now enjoy the processing perfection and high-level performance that was once available only to professional chefs.

Your CIA Professional Series package includes everything you need to start cooking like a professional chef?right in your own kitchen!

Recipes from world-renowned chefs are complemented by dramatic full-color photos and presented in a space-saving easel-back design. The companion cookbook, "Recipes and Techniques," includes special recipes and tips direct from the CIA Certified Master Chefs. A special one-hour DVD Cooking Class with Chef Michael Symon is filled with professional tips and techniques?and great fun to watch. The energy is contagious! Most importantly, your CIA Professional Series machine comes with the peace of mind that only a 7-year full performance warranty can provide. Pledging complete customer satisfaction, Vita-Mix will keep your CIA Professional Series machine running just like new, or they will fix or replace it for you.Juicing Whole Foods When you juice whole foods in the Professional Series, the cell walls of whole fruits and vegetables are pulverized. You get the delicioius juice and all of the nutritious whole food fiber. Unlike a juice extractor that discards the pulp, the Professional Series starts with the whole fruit or vegetable and, delivers all the health benefits of both the juice and the fiber.The Professional Series has the motor power, speed, container and blade design to make it happen smoothly by pulverizing the whole food fiber and breaking it into microscopic pieces that are easy to digest. You get a creamy, smooth juice full of fiber with no fiber "feel"!Preparing Hot SoupsPreparing hot soups in the Professional Series starts with fresh, whole produce and in 4 to 6 minutes you?ll get a steaming hot soup complete with all the nutrients. The Professional Series blades turn so fast they generate enough friction to bring soup up to serving temperature. Simply toss in the ingredients identified in the recipe, secure the lid, flip the switch, and you?ll experience a delicious, whole vegetable soup with no peeling or seeding required! To make a chunky soup, cooked meat or seafood may be added on low speed durning the last few seconds.The Professional Series doesn?t stop at soups! You will be making lump-free sauces, gravies and puddings almost effortlessly. Fresh or canned fruits can be turned into delicious fruit syrups to use on ice cream, pancakes or waffles.Dry ChoppingDry chopping is used for such things as carrots, olives, nuts, coconut, onions, eggs and cheese. With the Professional Series, these tasks are quick, easy and require little cleanup. For best results, chop only one cup at a time. You decide how coarse or fine you want the finished product by adjusting the Variable Speed Dial. The faster the speed...the finer the chop.Remember, the precision?crafted stainless steel blades do all the work, so you don?t have to. You can even combine some items used in the same recipe to save more time.Wet ChoppingWater draws the item into the blades resulting in a uniform chop. The type of chop, whether coarse or fine, is determined by the speed selected on the Variable Dial. With wet chopping, you can easily prepare vegetables for soups, salads, stir-frying, side dishes and coleslaw. Wet chopping is also the recommended preparation for all raw vegetables where a uniform chop is required (e.g., salsa). However, when wet chopping ingredients for salsa, the moisture released by the vegetables is sufficient for the vegetables to circulate into the blades.Dry GrindingFreshly-ground flours take only 1 minute in your new Professional Series. Take whole wheat berries, such as hard red, soft winter white or Golden 86 and turn them into wonderful fresh breads, rolls and hot cereals. Even beans, rice and tapioca are easily ground into flours for use in gluten-free recipes. Grinding your own grains will give you all the nutritional benefits of fiber-rich, preservative-free homemade bread. Wet GrindingThe precision-crafted stainless steel blades draw the mixture down and into the blender for proper processing and do all the work for you. Making Frozen TreatsAnd what's even more amazing is that you'll make it in under a minute! Frozen desserts start with a frozen fruit ingredient. The secret is the high performance precision-crafted stainless steel blades that crush and cut up frozen ingredients in seconds. The blade action produces a larger frozen surface area that releases coldness. The Professional Series works so fast that it all happens in about 30 seconds. And there's no time for the mixture to melt. With the help of the accelerator tool, the mixture actually refreezes itself instantly and creates a smooth and scrumptious soft-serve frozen treat.KneadingYes the Professional Series even kneads dough so you won't ever have to touch it. Making bread from start to finish is so quick and easy, you can make healthy, preservative-free bread fresh daily. Bread made the Professional Series way is superior to commercially produced white bread in many different ways...more dietary fiber, more vitamins and fabulous, fresh, home-baked taste!
