Vitamix Introduces New Tamper Holder

Consumer-Driven Product Provides a Convenient Storage Solution for Vitamix Processing Tool

CLEVELAND―Vitamix® presents the Tamper Holder, the latest introduction to its lineup of quality accessories designed to enhance the overall blending experience. The Tamper Holder was developed as a response to consumer demand for a simple storage solution for the Vitamix tamper tool. It conveniently attaches to the motor base of all Classic Series (C-Series) Vitamix machines.

The Tamper Holder provides quick and easy access to the Tamper while blending. It also frees up valuable countertop and drawer space, and reduces the possibility of misplacement. Plus, the holder fits both classic and mini-Tamper sizes.

Tampers are exclusive to Vitamix blenders and were engineered to help process thick or frozen mixtures and fully incorporate all ingredients into the blend. The tools also help remove air pockets while blending.

“The Tamper Holder is very much a consumer-driven invention,” said Karen Haefling, vice president of marketing, Vitamix. “Vitamix users are very passionate about their machines. When they requested a handy way to keep the tamper off the countertop, but within reach, we created a solution. This tool adds even more convenience to the overall Vitamix blending experience.”

The Tamper Holder is compatible with the following C-Series machines: 5200™, 5300, 6000™, 6300®, Professional Series™ 200®, Professional Series™ 500®, Creations® II, Creations® GC, Creations® Turbo, CIA® Creations®, CIA® Professional Series™, TurboBlend® Two Speed and TurboBlend® VS.

The Tamper Holder is available for purchase on vitamix.com for $29. It requires no installation and is easy to attach and remove for cleaning. It is also dishwasher safe. For additional information on Vitamix blenders and accessories, visit vitamix.com.
