When Costco had a representative for the Vitamix at our local store, he showed us the benefits of the Vitamix and what the awesome machine can produce. Aside from their famous Tortilla Soup and ice creams he made for us. He showed us the easy task of cleaning it! Wow! To my amaze, it was so easy to clean and that sealed the deal for me. So we came home with an awesome Vitamix 6300 model. The current and new model on the market! We have had this baby for over 5 months and it’s been a dream come true!! In the video below found on Youtube, she shows the ease in cleaning the Vitamix. If you haven’t seen a representative from Vitamix at Costco, call up your local Costco and find out the schedule of when the next show will be at your store. Here is a video demo of how to clean your Vitamix pitcher. Below are images of how I clean my Vitamix. I will also add that when I clean my container, I use the spray function on my faucet to remove any seeds or residue by spraying it down first before adding the water and a drop of Dawn Dish Washing soap into the container. After running the machine for about 30 seconds, I remove the access cap and cap from the container, pour the soap suds onto the cap and lid and run them under hot water. Also, if you have the need to use a sponge to wipe down your container, be sure to not use the scour side of the sponge as it will scratch the pitcher. There you will have a clean Vitamix in less than a minute! Towel dry to avoid water marks and your Vitamix is ready to go for your next use!
