Vitamix 5200 vs 2200 Recipe Comparison: Raw Tahini Ginger Dressing

Posted on

"BPA-free"or Got BPA? Here you can see Waring® Commercial stainless steel container on the Vitamix base.

When I found out that the Vitamix® container may NOT in fact be as claimed "BPA-Free" I thought I was stuck with my "BPA-Free" blender.

After much research, I found out that there is a VERY EASY way to replace or some might say 'upgrade' the Vitamix container with one of the Waring stainless steel container! Waring has many stainless steel containers but only one container fits the Vitamix base! Click this link to buy the container.

The Waring® Commercial stainless steel container fits AND works perfectly on modern Vitamix blender bases.

Both Vitamix® and Waring® do not make any recommendations to use their products together.

Be aware that if you inform Vitamix® or Waring® that you use their products together they might void your product Warranty.

Also, I have added many links in the description area below this video.

What to do with your plastic Vitamix container? 1) Sell on eBay – Include a full disclosure as to why you are selling.

You will be surprised that some people still want to buy it.

2) Repurpose – Use as a flower pot, water your plants since it has a nice handle and pour spout, and any other non-food use.

3) Recycle – Only an option if your recycle company accepts #7 plastic.

Most curb recycle in the U.


do not accept #7.

PLEASE do NOT throw 'away'! Most conventional plastics do not biodegrade and they take about 500 – 1,000 years to break down.

The plastic breaks down into smaller and smaller particles that end up contaminating our soil and water.

Hi, I am Lena Mumma.

In this video I'm going to compare these two blenders.

Stainless steel 2200 model and Vitamix® 5200 model plastic.

I am going to make salad dressing.

I will use recipe from this book "Raw Food Revolution Diet" by Cherie Soria and I'm going to make "Tahini ginger dressing" I am going to modify this recipe a little bit I just made nut butter comparison recipeand I did not wash the blender because there is no reason to wash the blender and when I usually.

If i do several recipes a day I'm planning in a way that I don't have to wash the blender in between because its just nut butter and now i'm going to make salad dressing so there's no difference just a little bit of cashew so it doesn't effect the recipe.

This blender I washed because what happens that the top was falling apart since it's so old some black plastic pieces fell into my blender.

I am not going to use this anymore.

I feel uncomfortable to use that plastic junk.

So, I'm going to use for now just a cloth on top.

I hope it will work.

Let's see.

So we start with 1/2 water.

That's just good enough.

Recipe requires 1 cup of water, but I like it not so thin, I like it thicker.

Also recipe calls for 2 tablespoon Oh, no.

I am not reading the right way.

1/2 cup raw tahini, but there is no point to use blender if you going to use tahini, since you can mix it with a spoon.

The point to use the blender is to blend the seeds So I am going to use hulled sesame seeds.

Tahini is usually made out of hulled sesame seeds.

Once I made this dressing with unhulled sesame seeds and I did not like it.

It had too much fiber.

Than just a soy sauce.

This is tamari, you do not need any special tamari or Nama Shoyu.

Just any organic soy sauce.

And ginger Recipe calls for 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger.

I do not peel ginger I just cut ginger approximately, because what is important for me – is to save time.

And same with garlic – 2 cloves of garlic.

Some times, I do not even peel.

This time they had thick skin, so I peeled the skin.

and It is called for agave syrup.

I do not use agave anymore.

I have dates, I pit them.

One date for each.


It asked for 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice.

I am going to use vinegar instead Apple cider vinegar and I am going to use just 1 Tablespoon we need to use less vinegar I think that is it.

I hope so! I am going to start with 2200 model Blending sound.

I think I need to mix it Oh, I can feel whole piece of ginger.

May be I should grate the ginger.

Blending sound.

OK let's see Towel will get dirty during blending.

Oh, I like the consistency, it is quite thick.

Oh, It worked! Lets see from vitamix 5200.

It looks pretty much the same to me.

I am not very particular/picky.

For me it is more important than my food is safe.

I do not see any clumps from 2200 vitamix blender (stainless steel).

Let me taste the texture.

Oh, it is strong! Very strong taste – ginger and garlic.

By it self – it is very strong! I think it is perfect – both blenders did the same job.

and I just got dirty towel 🙁 I think.

I have to ask my husband to make me wooden top now.

Thank you for watching! Goodbye.
