Vitamix Debuts Food Processor Attachment

Vitamix has debuted a 12-cup food processor attachment designed for precision slicing, chopping and processing when paired with the motor base of the Ascent or Venturist blender models.

The food processor attachment features self-detect technology. The motor base wirelessly connects to the food processor, and all other Vitamix Smart System attachments and accessories, making any necessary power adjustments.

In addition, the new attachment is said to introduce extreme precision, with sharp blades for chopping, shredding and mincing garlic, onion or carrots, even in very small quantities. Fragile ingredients are sliced consistently, dough and peanut butter are processed with more ease, and partially frozen meats are ground cleanly, the company said.

“This is a versatile tool that raises the quality of my work across the board. I can cut full, consistent slices of tomato or super thin slices of cucumber. It also excels at processing and emulsifying flavorful sauces and pastes,” said Adam Wilson, manager of culinary exploration for Vitamix.

Vitamix said storage is easy as all the parts nest inside one another, forming one compact unit that can be tucked into a kitchen cabinet or pantry and easily pulled out for regular use.

The Vitamix 12-cup food processor attachment with self-detect technology comes with a three-year warranty on all parts. Most parts are dishwasher safe. It is available at for $199.95. The motor base must be purchased separately.
