TanishaLynneStyles: Where could I buy this?
Bobby Fox: Looks tasty. My Vitamix is in transit, and this will be the first recipe I
make when it arrives!
denise true: Where can you buy the peanuts without the shells? Looks fantastic!
Irvin Sahni: Very nice video. I can't wait to make some ;)
kgv1997km3000: I am going to purchase a Vitamix but cannot decide between the new 750 or
cheaper 5200! Besides appearance is the 750 worth the extra price? Thank
you so much!
Tiffany Ott: amazing! i want one!!!
supportrtroopz: I just bought the 7500, I've NEVER made my own smoothies, etc & you have
HELPED me understand how to use, I'm really glad I found you:) thank you
for being sooo helpful,
D Knott: I cant afford a Vita Mix but I am getting one as similar to it as
possible...How many watts is it? Does anyone know what good # is...the one
im looking at is 1500 watts I think and over 2 hp
Jeanette Herbert: Finally! A video that actually explains the differences between the models.
Thank you! I've been wondering what the differences were to try and make an
informed decision. :)
D Baker: Hey Henry...now you need to do a review on the Foodsaver. I heard you
mention it. In the past I've used an older version and my bags always seem
to lose the seal and you'll see air in the item. Can you help with that
Shawn Woodell: You have convinced me to buy one! :)
Amber Sherman: I have been looking into the Vitamix extensively and absolutely love it and
will be getting it next month, but what I need to know is the difference
between the 750 and 5200. The 750 has the presetting's which is more user
friendly to me and makes it easier so that I don't have to look up
everything and memorize a bunch of settings. Is it better to have the
presetting's or to have the regular 5200?? Any info on this would be
captfjb: Love the peanut butter video (I already tried it and he's right - tastes
great!) Does anyone have a recipe for using the 750 to make Apple Pie ice
cream? Found one for another version but still have questions. Thanks,
26inchkick: What the cleanup like? How do you get the jar clean after that??
Amber Sherman: And by the way love your videos!! They have really helped a lot!
Amber Sherman: I forgot to add where else can I get this model I looked on qvc and they
only have a 7500?
Gwyneth Spooner: thanks love it, do I need a wet and dry jug please
scpumpchump: I love my 750. I make so many different hummus's. That is the norm in
addition to smoothies. Great video!
dadou0387: Love love love your video thank you soo much!
s1o1l1i1y1n: I hope vitamix is paying you because you just earned them a sale.
skawtch: Cool video! I'm going for the Omniblend V though.
CalvinCooler: Hello Henry Great video. I was wondering if you knew the model of the
Vitamix thats sold at Costco Wholesale and if it's as good as the one you
use. I'm just like you ice cream peanut butter soup and smoothies nothing
fancy like bread or pizza. Thanks in advance.
tonykara: How is cleanup of the blades and bottom of the container after making
something so oily? Thanks for the videos. :)
Henry PJ: Hi Daniel, thanks so much for your support. If you ever have questions feel
free to ask.
John T: We made batch #1 yesterday with 3 cups unsalted, 1 cup salted, and a
tablespoon of honey. I didn't let it run long enough to swirl freely in the
container so it was a bit thicker than your batch. We did another batch
today that turned out great after letting it run longer. :)
goldenstar50L: Does your peanut butter stay that consistency after it's been
refridgerated? I just tried making it tonight and mine was smooth at first.
I left it in the blender about 2 minutes after blending to get my storing
jars and it hardened up. I suspect I may not have blended long enough. The
book said 1min and that's what I did. The "butter" was more like a very.,
very thick paste. Might you have any ideas?
jaiedub: Currently, I am trying to determine between Ninja and Vitamix because of
your videos. I was initially sold on Ninja, now...not so much. Do you
refrigerate your peanut butter after making?
TZ2OurLittleDogToo: Hi Henry! Your videos are my fav place to get VitaMix info!! Thanks for
your time and all the details you give your viewers, it is VERY helpful!
Peanut butter is a big thing on my list to make. I put in an order for a
basic model, but think I am changing it to a model with pre-sets... I
watched another video of yours and I see how the presets really are
important. And you're so right - there is nothing to compare to freshly
made peanut butter.
Henry PJ: Hi, not everybody gets it right the first time, trust me. :-). Check out my
frozen sorbet video. I knew for a fact I wasn't putting in enough ice but I
didn't have enough ice frozen while making the video so my sorbet came out
more like a frozen smoothie. Make sure to add 3-4 times the amount of ice
against your ingredients. The motor is new so it can smell under heavy load
such as crushing a lot of ice. Mine never smells other than that.
dorus03: great vid! i am going to buy a vitamix 750 soon and i want to make almond
butter with it... is it good to do it on the wet container or will it
damage it? because i'm not sure whether or not i should buy the dry
container to make my almond butter
Crystal VC: I just got one minus the cookbook & dvd. .I'm completely lost. I made a
yummy potato soup using the preset. However, I added more potatoes at the
end and tried to do a manual or pulse blend and it wouldn't do a thing. Is
this normal? Also, we smell the motor and the body gets warm. Again,is this
normal? Next, I attempted to make a frozen dessert and it came out more
like a smoothie. Also wondering if I need the dry container or if this
model an all in one? Thanks,your videos SO HELPFUL!
smart99guy: Hey nice video. Where did you get the bag from to preserve the peanuts and
did you use a special machine to suck the air out of it? You mentioned
Henry PJ: Hi, jaiedub! Yes I do refrigerate the peanut butter. It needs to be
refrigerated in order to stay solid and since there are no preservatives to
protect it from going rancid refrigeration is a must. It will keep for up
to 3 weeks. Please check out my Ninja 1500 vs. Vitamix Showdown video. This
should address your questions and concerns. Thanks for watching.
Henry PJ: Hi Simkmer, you're very welcome. I like the idea of making Brazilian nut
butter, sounds awesome. I was thinking about doing a video with a full nut
mix, need to try it first before doing a video. Taste is important. :-).
Thanks so much for watching and supporting me.
Rubis Pham: WOW
Henry PJ: Hey Goldenstar50L! It depends on which Vitamix you are using as far as
blending times. For the model I'm using in the video the blending time
using the tamper is suppose to be one minute on high. Then the speed dial
is turned down to "7" for an additional 30 seconds to make it smooth. Mine
will not firm up unless it's in the fridge overnight in fact but stays
smooth. Leave it in the blender on high for 90 sec next time. Peanuts may
vary in the amount of oil they have. It shouldn't be a paste.
Exodus Nine: Thanks. The only store around here that has bulk organic didn't have
peanuts, so I thought maybe they are to find. I'll keep a look out if I
Henry PJ: Hey Alex, how's it going? Thanks for dropping by. I felt the same way you
felt at first but if you take a look around almost every manufacturer that
makes a power blender uses plastic and other than Blendtec, while I'm not
certain what other companies are using, I haven't seen or heard any
backlash about the BPA copolyester container from Vitamix.
Henry PJ: Hi Jim, you're spot on. Lemon juice is your best friend when it comes to
saving apples that have already been cut or have had the skin removed. Just
add enough where it doesn't necessarily change the flavor. The citrus is
what saves it. Do the same thing for avocado when making guacamole,
especially if you plan to make it the night before serving it. Apples and
Avocado should keep for several days as long as they are covered in lemon
MsWatchy: Thank you so much for clarifying the "difference" between the 300, 750 and
7500. I was confused looking at the Vitamix website. What's your opinion on
the reconditioned ones? Thanks for any insight. Love your channel!
J-D Robertson: Hey Henry, Waaasaaap! I just picked up the Vitamix 1782 TurboBlend, 2 Speed
for a cool $400. It does not have the dial. Just a simple low high setting.
Is this essentially the same, you just need to time it yourself and start
at low then hit high? Cool vids bro.
Henry PJ: Sending you a message so I can give you full detailed information.
Henry PJ: Stay tuned, I'm working on another special video.
chavitavb: I've had my 5200 since 011 :P but man I'm jelly of your vitamix
Henry PJ: Hi Cormie, I posted your video. When making peanut butter it's important to
use roasted peanuts. I generally use Organic Valencia Peanuts due to the
sweeter flavor and richer texture however any roasted peanuts should work
fine. Raw or roasted won't matter in terms of working the machine harder,
it's about flavor and you should roast your peanuts. Perhaps you should cut
down to 2 cups of nuts if it's causing your Blendtec to overheat. BTW,
where did you get that plastic tamper?
goldenstar50L: Thanks for the help! It was the honey. I tried it for the 3rd time without
adding any honey and it came out perfect. I'll just skip it and drizzle
over my sandwich from now on. Thanks again!
Henry PJ: Right on Nick! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I assure you, you'll never buy
another jar of peanut butter from the store once you make it on your
skawtch: @Henry PJ Cool Henry :) I have subscribed and look forward to trying out
your recipes. I'm all the way down in sunny South Africa by the way - time
to join the food blending revolution!
Brian Knapp: Great, thanks for explaining that. I'm looking forward to trying it this
