3. Burning smell? It’s OK! – Brand new Vitamix’s from our roadshows have never been out of the box or turned on, so it’s normal to have that slight burning smell when you first start blending! Depending on how often you use your Vitamix, the smell could go away within a week (if you use it every day), or a few months (if you only use it once a week!) We have a friend who never used their Vitamix for anything other than making smoothies out of fresh fruit for over 10 years, and the first time we showed her how to make an ice cream, there was also the burning smell because she never properly broke in her motor with any hard ingredients like 3 cups of ice! 10 years!
4. Register your Vitamix – If you purchased your Vitamix through us, then your Vitamix is already covered under warranty via the serial number. But if you want to make sure that your Vitamix is registered, you can do that here. All the information is stuck on the back of the machine, including the Vitamix phone number and your serial number 🙂
**Important: If you happened to purchase a 2nd container with your Vitamix machine on the same receipt, then registering it online will ensure that your 2nd container’s warranty extends to 7 years. Otherwise, it will be covered under the standard 3 year container warranty.
5. Join our FB group! – To stay updated, you can always visit our blog for more tips and tricks (and soon, reviews!) We also created a Facebook group to create a supportive Vitamix community. Feel free to ask questions, share recipes, or any of your own tips and tricks from owning your Vitamix!
We will be sure to regularly update this list as we think of more tips for new Vitamix owners, and stay tuned for additional tricks in the next few weeks for different recipes 🙂 Feel free to also ask us any questions via our *CONTACT PAGE LINK*, and we will promptly answer! If you need help making a recipe, let us know and we can even send you a video on how to do it!
If you still haven’t picked up a Vitamix, find us at one of our roadshows, or *SEND US A MESSAGE LINK *and we will make sure you get equipped with the #1 food preparing machine in the world 🙂
Happy holidays and happy blending!
