Vacuum Blenders - Sucking the life back into your blended foods
Vacuum Blenders are relatively new and Vitality 4 Life have been researching this new technology for quite some time. We've rejected many models and worked with designers and suppliers to get the mix right.
To explain a little more, it 'sucks' when you spend time creating the perfect smoothie... thick, colourful, tasty and full of nutrients and by the time kids are called they are faced with an unappetising, watery drink, with brown froth on top? Solve the problem with our vacuum blenders such as the BioChef Astro Vacuum Blender, BioChef Aurora Vacuum Blender and Soup Maker or the BoChef Apollo Vacuum Blender.
Oxygen IS life however oxidation of your blended foods does tend to take, not only the fun, but the life, nutrients, flavour and taste out. Vacuum Blenders suck the life back in to your blended foods and keep it there until YOU are ready to use it.
What is Vacuum Technology?
Vacuum technology in the blending industry is still fairly new. For supermarkets and other food retailers it has been an essential part of food storage since the 1940’s. Vacuum sealed packaging and canning processes helped keep our food fresher for longer and now you can use that technology to prolong the shelf life of your soups, sauces, smoothies, nut butters a
Why are we going nuts for Cashew milk?
For those who choose a dairy free diet almond milk has been the king of the nut milk world. However it seems that soon almond milk maybe knocked off its lofty throne and be replaced by a new king.. cashew milk. Why?
Apart from the incredible health benefits attributed to the cashew nut the cashew milk just tastes better. It has a less nutty flavour than almond milk and won’t overpower the other flavours in your smoothies. Best of all you don’t have to strain them thereby retaining the important fibre, you just soak overnight, add water and blend in your BioChef Nova. Voila!
Here are just five of the reasons that cashew milk is good for all of you.
Good for the heart
High powered blenders are getting better and better and vacuum blenders like the BioChef Airfree vacuum blender are taking blending to the next level. For those who want to gain the most out of their healthy living diet here are just five of the many reasons you should definitely try one.
1. Accessories are key
With the BioChef Airfree Blender the accessories really make the outfit! Now not only can you make superior smoothies and other blended foods you can vacuum pack store them as well. Using the BioChef Airfree’s vacuum function you can suck the air out of the provided containers and vacuum bags keeping your fruits, meats, vegetables, sandwiches, dehydrated snacks and more fresher for longer - perfect for the lunchbox!
The Airfree comes with a full storage solution including 1 x Tumbler, 4 x Storage Containers, 3 Vacuum Bags and 1 Wine Stopper.
2. Less oxidation, longer shelf life
High powered blenders are amazingly fast and powerful making them extremely popular with blending enthusiasts. However, similar to when we chew, slice and chop, the blend will immediately be subjected to the surrounding air. When food meets air the process is called ‘oxidation’ and as you have probably noticed it pretty much immediately starts to breakdown. It doesn’t just look bad when it turns an unappetising, browny colour, also the all important nutrients,
In a nutshell YES it is a perfect kitchen pair to have a juicer and a blender. People are becoming more and more discerning about what they eat and how they can get the best nutrient filled drink or meal for their healthy body buck. The high powered BioChef blenders and cold press BioChef juicers offer different ways for the body to ingest healthy nutrients, enzymes and just plain deliciousness. Put simply the blender will retain the fibre and the juicer will give you a quicker nutrient blast that can be absorbed more easily. Both a juicer and a blender are important for different reasons but together they are unstoppable.
What does a cold press Oscar or BioChef juicer do?
Cold pressed juicers are masticating cold pressed juice extractors that also double as a living food kitchen appliance. The horizontal style auger design crushes almost any type of vegetables and fruits including leafy greens (kale, wheatgrass, herbs, aloe). The crushing and squeezing action mimics our own chewing action by correctly breaking open the cell wall, releasing the nutrients and organic water content while expelling the insoluble fibre.
Without all this indigestible fibre, your body doesn't have to work as hard to break down the vegetables and fruits. Cold pressed vegetable juices deliver nutrients into our bloodstream quickly and in a bio-available form. Juices are included in almost all types of healing and detoxification programs. The cold press juicer is named so
Is there such a thing as a ‘best blender’?
Vitality 4 Life believes it is neither a myth or a reality. It is simply that the ‘best blender’ is the one that suits your personal needs, what you want to make and your budget. Don’t know how to choose? We are here to help. Whether you are daily blender user or weekly, are dedicated to healthy living or you simply want to make fast, simple, healthy soups and smoothies Vitality 4 Life are here to help you make the right choice.
Vitality 4 Life have listened to our customers and taken that feedback back to the manufacturers to help create superior products. We have had the opportunity to test many models of blenders (personal, vacuum, high performance, heating, etc) to help you choose a best blender that suits your personal needs.
Let’s start with the basics...
What is a blender?
Simply put, a blender is used to grind and mix. It has a high bowl that has an average capacity of 1 to 2 litres. Compared with a classic mixer (plunge mixer type) it is much more powerful and allows you to get smoother textures. There are vacuum blenders that will considerably reduce oxidation of your food for a longer shelf life and that heat your soup as you blend.
Mostly the engine is located below the bowl, turning blades that will grind the food. Some heated blenders have the motor above and below
Since the introduction of the Nutribullet, which has taken the kitchen appliance category by storm, there has been a flood of like-for-like copycat blenders emerge on the market. They come in vastly different price ranges, promising different nutritional benefits and are heavily marketed online, on TV and in-store. With so many models, which one is best?
The leading consumer authority in Australia, Choice, tested single-serve blenders otherwise known as 'bullet blenders' and found the following three brands to be rated as best of category: Nutribullet Pro 900, Trent & Steele TS200 Nutritional Blender and the Vitamix S30 Personal Blender. BioChef, Vitality 4 Life's own kitchen appliance range has released it's own bullet blender, called the NutriBoost Bullet Blender, so we thought we would compare the Choice rated, best bullet blenders on the market against this newest model.

The BioChef Living Food Blender is by far one of our most exciting products to date, and we truly believe that this product will surpass blender standards globally by giving customer access to the very latest technology without the exuberant price tag. This BioChef Living Food Blender Review will outline the reasons why the BioChef Living Blender is the easiest blender to use and operate in the world.
One of the main priorities of a blender is to essentially speed up the process of crushing, grinding or chopping your produce. We all want a blender which will save us time and which should help you create smoothies, juices, soups etc easily and quickly. There are specific features of blenders which make some easier and quicker to use than others.
Touch Screen Controls & Preset Functions
Generally the controls of a blender are an indication of how simple the machine is to use. A machine which has limited to no controls means that the blending will stay at the same speed throughout and will result in uneven consistency and varying results. Also it will mean that the process is completely reliant on your judgement and you will have to watch over the blender for the processing time, meaning you can't do other things in the kitchen while this is happening.
We have heard time and time again of customers who love the theatre of a blender demonstration and if your in the market for a high powered blender you will have seen them. However when they get the product home, whipping up the demonstrated recipes just isn't that easy. Customers become disappointed with their new appliance and it sits in the bottom cupboard and gathers dust. The BioChef Living Food Blender
The BioChef Blender range is quickly becoming the best blender range in the world. The BioChef Blenders are high quality, high performance blenders which are giving the competitors a run for their money! The BioChef Blenders are part of the BioChef Living Kitchen range, which was designed and developed by Vitality 4 Life to create a shift in the way the blender market was moving - no longer are consumers expected to pay upwards of $1000 for a high powered, commercial grade blender; the BioChef range of blenders start at below half that price.
The BioChef range was developed after more than 20 years of listening to our customers and as such, the BioChef products exceed their counterparts in customer expectations of performance, product life and value for money.
The BioChef High Performance Blender was released in 2012 and a quick search in Google will quickly tell you that this blender has received 5 star reviews consistently with customers amazed at the quality and value of this product.
The BioChef Living Blender was released late in 2014 at a time when the market had grown and more customers were starting to look specifically for high powered blenders and as a result there was a lot more blenders on the market. With competition very strong, we wanted to develop a product which stood in a class of it's own. And the result was the BioChef Living Blender. Innovation and technology come together to bring you a blender which takes guesswork out of the equation and takes simplicity to a new level. Being "easy to use" is an under-statement with the BioChef Living Blender.
Let's compare the specifications...
