Every bar or restaurant has a blender, and every blender has a container. But Vitamix’s Aerating Container expands the capabilities of the blender base and allows mixologists and chefs to create delicate blends and expand menu offerings by preparing unique foams and emulsions. The key is the container’s innovative perforated disc replacing the standard chopping blade. “I haven’t seen anything else on the market that aerates in such an effectively frictionless environment,” says Will Hollingsworth, Owner of The Spotted Owl and Hollingsworth Beverage Consulting in Cleveland. “This frictionless aeration allows us to take advantage of the Vitamix’s horsepower without conducting that mechanical energy directly into the contents of the container.” In addition, the disc juices, mousses and infuses contents, as well as stirs ingredients of iced drinks while leaving the ice whole. Hollingsworth, and his staff, appreciate the container’s fresh take on juicing. “We use it every day to aerate our citrus juices. Aeration of fresh citrus makes it more aromatic without the bitterness and astringency associated with old, oxidized juice,” he says. “Besides aerating our juices, we also have experimented with using it to ‘dry-shake’ (emulsify) egg-white cocktails like flips and fizzes, and to stir cocktails over ice.” The 32-oz. container is constructed from BPA-free Eastman Tritan copolyester and double-sealed bearings for strength and durability.
