Raise your hands if you’re a longtime Vitamix owner or are considering adding one to your countertop! We have some news for you: The iconic brand just launched a 48-ounce Stainless Steel container that pairs with all full-size Vitamix blenders, and honestly, it’s a total game changer! Don’t believe us? Kitchn’s Lifestyle Director, Lisa, swapped her old plastic container for the stainless steel one a few weeks ago and insists it’s made a difference in her daily smoothies: “I swear my drinks feel colder and taste better!” she says.

Besides cutting down on the passage of heat and keeping liquids cooler (or soups hotter!) for a lot longer, the stainless steel container is also a whole lot sturdier than plastic ones, which tend to chip or crack over time. You don’t have to worry about damaging the container’s surface if you accidentally drop it, and if, like Lisa, you “always felt a little weird blending up frozen fruit in a plastic container,” you’ll instantly notice the difference the swap makes. “It just feels right,” she says.

Another major pro? Unlike plastic, stainless steel won’t retain food odors from spice-heavy soups, sauces and dips. The dishwasher-safe container is equipped with a clear BPA-free lid that lets you monitor and adjust blending power without stopping the machine and a low-profile tamper to help move chunky ingredients around to get the perfect blend. It also has measurement markings on the inside to guide you when following recipes.

Function aside, the stainless steel container just looks a whole lot more slick. “Although I don’t have stainless steel appliances, I wish I did, and leaving this out on the counter helps me fake that look just a little bit,” says Lisa. Additionally, the non-reactive stainless steel is resistant to scratches and marks and will retain that shine for years to come.

So there you have it. One tiny upgrade that will make your powerful blender way more functional and durable. The fact that it’s totally gorgeous is just an added bonus!
