While Vita-Mix is best known for its juicers, the company is dedicated to making many different small appliances that can help us eat healthier. The Vita-Mix Grain Container is one, making it significantly easier to cook with whole grains at home. This appliance may look like a blender, but it can actually grind up all sorts of dry ingredients. It comes with 45 recipes that will let you cook with whole grains, but even if you aren't sure how much baking you want to do with whole grains, there are still plenty of reasons to have the Vita-Mix Grain Container.
The Vita-Mix Grain Container can grind spices and seeds just as easily as it handles grains. If you want to mix up the perfect rub for barbecue, for instance, you can just start adding in spices. It has measuring marks along the side, to let you add ingredients without stopping. It can hold up to 32 ounces, so you can grind up big batches ahead of time. The container and lid are made from BPA-free plastic and are dishwasher-safe. The lid locks in place to keep clean-up to a minimum. The Vita-Mix Grain Container is available for $144 from Sur La Table.
