Of all the many brands on MetroKitchen, I am certain that Tim Allen of “Home Improvement” fame would be all over Vitamix blenders and food processors. His comic quest for more horse power would lead him on a crash course for an appliance like Vita-Mix. These machines have 2 plus peak horsepower and the blades spin at 240 miles per hour at the highest setting. These products are built in the USA, in Cleveland, Ohio and are built to last! There are two models to chose from, the Turbo Blend 4500 and the CIA Pro Series which is comparable to the Vita-Mix 5200 series.

One of the frequent questions we get here at MetroKitchen customer service is “My stainless steel cookware has become discolored. How can I restore its luminous finish?” Or various iterations of the same question.
Before we get into the solution, let’s talk about some of the reasons your stainless steel cookware may become discolored or end up with a bluish hue:
Lamborghini, Maserati, Miyabi. While most will agree that they roll off the tongue easily, most would then sing the Sesame Street tune, “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things does not belong”. Well, two are Italian sports cars and recently introduced Henckels Miyabi is a line of Japanese knives. I will agree that they have some striking differences but they all are items that stand for extreme performance! Miyabi is a line of cutlery that is second to none when it comes to performance. These are the sharpest knives I’ve ever encountered and I’d venture to say you’ll feel the same way. The Miyabi 7000 series comes in 3 distinct categories: The 7000D, the 7000 Pro and the 7000MC. These knives are made in Japan under the supervision of German knife maker, Zwilling J.A. Henckels.
