The generous people at Luvele kindly gifted me with a Vibe Blender System a few months ago, and I was so happy to receive it, and excited to try it out and see all it could do! I had used a number of types of blenders over the years, from run-of-the mill basic blenders to a Vitamix high speed blender, so I was curious to try this one out!
When it arrived, the first thing I noticed was how heavy and substantial the box was. Opening it up, I was impressed by both the heavy duty packing materials that ensured it arrived safe and sound, as well as the variety of excellent quality pieces this blender system includes.
For starters, I’ve never had a stainless steel canister before for a blender, and was already envisioning the hot soups and sauces I could make in it! It also contains a BPA free heavy duty plastic canister. Both canisters are taller than I’ve had before, with the capacity to hold more volume, and I’ve been so pleased with the amount of food I can blend at a time in them. (In fact, I can now make a quadruple batch of Jim’s Fluffy Pancakes as waffles in one easy batch, saving me time on weekend mornings as I feed my growing boys!).
The blender system also includes some useful and nice-looking accessories: a curved scrubbing brush for cleaning under the blades when hand washing, a special curved spatula, a nut milk bag, a plastic wand to push food around in the blender when the lid is on, and a hot pad.
And we’re not even to the blender base itself, which is amazing! By far exceeding my expectations, the sturdy base contains a computerized control panel with lit touch censors that give choices on things like how long to blend, what type of food you are blending, and the current temperature of your food as it blends (thanks to special temperature probes that report current temperatures).
As a first test, I made Broccoli Cheese Soup. This is a tasty soup, but doesn’t always come out as smooth as I or my family would like even with my Vitamix blender. I’m always a bit hesitant to blend hot soups in my Vitamix as well, because I don’t like the possibility of plastic chemicals leeching into our food. Well, no need for worry when I can now use the stainless steel canister. I put the lightly cooked ingredients in and set the blender to the 194 degree Soup setting, started it up and waited for it to turn off when it reached 194 degrees. Super easy! And our family all agreed it was the creamiest soup we had ever had, even getting raving comments from our boys on how delicious the soup was.
Since then, I’ve been inspired to use the Nuts setting to make homemade almond milk, something I have always been a bit intimidated about and had avoided for the entire 19 years on the SCD (!), but has been made so easy with the Vibe blender. I make almond milk several times a week now, along with some amazing smoothies for the family. We’re all enjoying the rich, creamy textures.
I’m impressed, and definitely would buy this above a Vitamix any day. The price is comparable with a new Vitamix, and I think it’s a much higher quality in every way. Thanks again Luvele for making another superior appliance that we SCDers can enjoy as we cook our way to wellness!
