Which Omniblend Jar is the best option for you?
All of our 3 options: (1.5 litre, 1.5 litre B-jar, and the 2 litre jar) fit on both manual and electronic Omniblend bases. Each jug has a tamper tool which helps to mix ingredients together in the centre of the blender and scrape the sides down. Sometimes a jiggle with the tamper tool helps get things unstuck. All these jugs are made of BPA-free materials so it is safe for you, your food and your customers, family and friends. Polycarbonate jars are available on order.
But which jar is the best and for what ingredients, foods and recipes? Read on to find the right jar for your home, cafe or restaurant. Note that OmniBlend jars are compatabile with the Vitamix Classic Series blenders
The 2 Litre OmniBlend Jar
The 2 litre Omniblend jar is referred to as the “professional” version. It holds 2 litres (plus has head-space). The convoluted mouldings in the side of the jar aid in the circulation of ingredients back down onto the blades.
The narrow base means there are no “blind” corners, and as the blades are covered more quickly, you can blend smaller quantities. This is the best jar for making sorbets, ice cream and “nice-cream”.
Choose this jug if you are often making large quantities, or like to be able to do smaller quantities – such as baby food, sauces etc., – or if you are using frozen ingredients a lot! The tamper tool is purchased separately.
Note that the 2 litre jar does not fit into the OmniShield (noise dampening enclosue). You must ensure that is on properly, which might be difficult if you have small hands or other problems affecting hand strength (such as arthritis). While it is superior in terms of the quality of blend, the convoluted sides that acheive this are not quite as easy to scrape clean.
