Make Changes

Creating your favourite dishes and treats will be a piece of cake with the Vitamix Aspire GC 48oz 12-in-1 Variable Speed Whole Food Blender! GC refers to the impressive 2.25HP "Galaxy Class" motor and powerful stainless steel hammermill blades. This versatile blender can easily do the work of 12 different appliances, including a whole food juicer, ice cream maker, hot soup maker, blender, cheese grater, chopper, meat grinder, ice crusher, peanut butter maker, stick blender, food processor and hand mixer. A high-performance appliance, this blender will help you prepare healthy meals without needing to change blades or attachments.

With the holidays fast approaching, every host and hostess is in need of a machine that can meet all his or her entertaining needs. This whole food blender allows you to create fruit smoothies, piping hot soups and frozen desserts in minutes so you can impress your guests. The powerful motor, contoured blades and a smart container shape work together to create a virtual vortex inside the BPA-free 48oz jar, which pulls your ingredients down through the blades continuously and back up the sides with variable speed and precision. The variable speed control lets you spin the blades as slow or as quick as needed. The blades can spin slowly at 11 mph, ideal for processing chunky salsas and dips, and they can also spin as fast as 240 mph, great for making ice cream or frozen yogurt in 30 seconds and hot soup in about four minutes.

Vitamix is an award-winning brand (it has won the "Best in Class" award for blenders for seven consecutive years from the Foodservice Equipment & Supplies magazine) and has machines used in over 100,000 restaurants all over the world. The quality company designed this configuration exclusively for The Shopping Channel and this product can only be found here!

This appliance is perfect for the chef at home, so get yours today!

Bronze Reviewer

So it's been a year since I bought this machine...I waited this long because after a year I wanted to see how much I use this mixer... Let's say I got rid of all my other mixers including the hand held ones...This thing is AMAZING! Yes it's loud, but man, I can whip up a fruit smoothie, protein shake or frappe like nobody's business...Also pretty much the only thing I use daily in my kitchen, I even whip up hummus, nut butters, ice cream, you name it, I have made it in this awesome machine!!! LOVE MY VITAMIX!

Black Teflon flakes

By Samantha

from Vancouver, BC

There are four primary reasons this mixer gets a one star rating. Firstly, it is the fact the new machine during the break-in leaves black teflon flakes in liquid or smoothies. While most people will never see it, some do notice it.

Secondly, the above is a known issue with Vitamix. They supposedly have fixed the above flake issue in the fall of 2015.

Thirdly, is the accessories. The extra jars are terribly expensive. Why not just buy the plastic jars without the blade?

Fourthly, these machines are very noisy. If you live in an apartment, you might receive complaints from your neighbors if you use this device in the early morning.

Additionally, we may see this product showcased or demo'ed elsewhere, but the info you get may not be consistent. One rep says there is no real difference between the 2.2 hp unit and the less powered 2.0 hp unit with preset buttons. but, like TSC indicates, there is a difference. You blend or mix faster with the higher horsepower, but you max out at a specific RPM.

I can't recommend this product until the address all the above issues from one to four.

patience rewarded


from HUNTSVILLE Ontario

I bought this superb machine when it was a show stopper in Sept. 2013. I waited to review because I wanted to see if I would still be using it 6 or so months after. The answer is a resounding "yes!" Every morning I make a smoothie: half for now and half for afternoon during that 'lull' period I seem to have. I throw in just about everything that is good for you- fruit, vegetables, other juices and let it go. I've made hot soup, grated chesses- awesome! As an owner of many kitchen hi-tech equipment, there isn't one that I use as much as Vitamix. Not many things in life are perfect- the Vitamix is!

Awesome !

By di

from Redwater , Alberta

Well worth the investment ! I got mine on sale and an extra 20% off on the day I ordered mine . I have used it 3 times a day since I received it and sometimes more ! I am drinking fruits and veggies like crazy and now my body just craves them . I was never a big fruit or veggie eater . I would usually end up throwing out most veggies and fruit as they would spoil before getting eaten . Not anymore ! I have almost cut out junk food completely and crave the nutrients from the fruit and veggies , nothing gets wasted anymore and clean out the fridge weekly using the Vitamix . I usually use half bottle water , ice , fruits and veggies and 2 tablespoons of yogurt and it makes a awesome smoothie which isn't too sweet . I can't drink regular fruit juices due to acid reflux but using the Vitamix I can drink the smoothies and have cut back on the meds that help to control the acid reflux . This machine has paid for itself already just in being able to cut down on meds and using it daily . I am so happy I got this machine . :)

My Best Kitchen Appliance Ever!

By Carmelitz

from Toronto, ON

I've waited so long to own this machine because it is very expensive. Finally, now I am so happy to have it in my kitchen. I use this machine to make my juices every day and it's worth every penny for the health benefits which I derive from using this powerful machine. Heart problems run in my family and I believe I can beat this with the help of this amazing machine, Vitamix, by eating wholesome food and drinking healthy juices. Oh yes, I agree - cleaning is a breeze and you would want to use this anytime of the day.

Love Love My Vitamix!

By Nantol

from Markham (Ontario)

I purchased the Vitamix Aspire GC with 48oz container in white (looks lovely sitting on my countertop btw) during the Showstopper in November.

The instructional and straightforward DVD helped me overcome my fear of using this very powerful and expensive machine. In addition, the recipe book served as inspirations for smoothies as I'd learned from previous reviews that the recipes in the book were measured out for the 64oz sized container.

At first I was sticking to the recipes provided in the booklet but now that I've got the hang of it I've started to experiment more and simply do a clean out my fridge and countertop fruit/veggie smoothie.

I haven't tried the soup or dessert/frozen recipes yet but looking forward at trying my hand at it.

I wholeheartedly recommend Vitamix. It's worth the wait for it to come out on Showstopper especially if you have a particular colour in mind. It also doesn't hurt that I got it on Showstopper for such a great price!

I love that I'm getting in my daily intake of fruit and veggies with very little effort. These Vitamix smoothies are by far better than expensive smoothie drinks offered at juice stands, coffee houses or in stores. Great product and great value. Thanks TSC!

By Norgithflame75

from Alberta, Canada

I have always wanted a vitamix! My mom got hers first and was showing me all the awesome things it can make, like soups and ice cream, and sorbets in all of the healthiest ways! I knew right then I had to get one. Time kept going by and wasting away and I always told myself I can't afford one right now, but really what it was, is that I couldn't afford not too! I needed a way to eat healthier in my life and this was the secret to my success!
So one day I was sitting going through channels when I came to the shopping channel and there is was the Aspire Galaxy Vitamix, show-stopper of the day!!! Welll I got on my computer and ordered one right away. I lost sleep waiting for this blender I was so excited; with what I was going to make with it! It came in 5 short days and I have been using it ever since! I love making broccoli cheese soups and mixing in all other different kinds of veggies and herbs to change it up. I make smooth gravies, and smoothies, and omelettes I grate my cheeses, and well, It is my kitchen GODDESS!!! I recommend a vitamix to everyone I talk to too, because it makes it very easy to eat healthier everyday! This was a must for me, I have a BMI of 41!!! It's gotta change, and so far I have lost 10lbs in less than 2 months!! This is without exercise yet! So go for it! Make a healthy and wise investment on a brand that is trustworthy, With such a great warranty and great quality why wouldn't you?
Don't even think about getting a knock off brand, they have plastic pieces and gears, that will wear out in no time and wastes your money! Get something that has stood the test of time and has great reviews like mine!!!! You won't be sorry, I wasn't and that means a lot as a consumer! Cheers. And Enjoy!!
