You won’t be surprised to hear that the Kuvings SV-500 has some outstanding features, that really make it stand out from the crowd. With revolutionary vacuum technology that prevents oxidisation, the nutrients are protected, thus making your blends much more nutritious. Not only does it have a fantastic vacuum function, it also has a sound reduction cover which means you won’t need to worry about noisy blending early in the morning.
Oxidisation is when fruit or vegetables react with oxygen, this cause fruit to turn brown and when you use a blender your produce is prone to oxidising. This is because small air bubbles are produced during the blending process. There are many advantages to using a vacuum and it's not just to stop fruit and veg oxidising.
With a vacuum blender, you can create much tastier and colourful blends as the phytonutrient antioxidants persevere much better. When you use a standard blender you may notice after 15 minutes or so your smoothie will separate from the water in your blend. By using a vacuum blender you will see a big difference of little to no water separation. This is all down to the vacuum blending emulsifying ingredients better than traditional blending.
Finally, you will see a decrease in the amount of foam you get when you blend, as small air bubbles won’t be mixed into your smoothie.
The Kuvings SV-500 Vacuum Blender has a maximum speed of 32,000 RPM, which is comparable to many commercial blenders. With this being said, even the toughest of ingredients can be blended into a smooth and creamy consistency.
When it comes to being quick and easy to use, the Kuvings SV-500 Vacuum Blender is one of the simplest blenders to use. Once you have finished blending the vacuum tumbler that is provided can easily be stored, as it has a sealed lid enabling you to keep your delicious blends fresh for much longer. The blending jug is also optimised for the user in mind, made out of BPA Free Tritan plastic, you will be able to keep an eye on how your ingredients are getting processed.
If you intend to use the Kuvings SV-500, not for smoothies, then an additional lid is provided which enables you to use the tamper for denser ingredients, such as houmous. However, you will not be able to use the sound reduction housing or the vacuum function.
The Pre-programmed buttons make it super easy to vacuum or use auto-blending. The auto-blending function is particularly interesting as it calculates the optimal RPM and blending time, so you won’t have to stand around waiting for it to finish.
This simple but helpful feature is what makes the SV-500 unique, the sound reducing cover is only really seen in commercial blenders, so to get it included on a domestic blender is excellent. As the SV has a 3.5 horsepower motor, it can get loud, but the noise reduction lid reduces the noise by a considerable amount, meaning you can entertain guests with no hassle at all.
