The futuristic and sleek look of the Kuvings SV500 Vacuum blender wouldn’t look out of place in a Star Trek movie and it easily grabs the title as best looking blender in our range. The unbroken smooth outline of the blender is provided by the domed noise reducing enclosure. Normally reserved for commercial blenders, Kuvings are the first to offer the advantage of quieter blending in a premium household blender and the noise reducing cover also cleverly provides the airway for the vacuum pump in the motor base. This empties the air from the jug before blending, or from the separate vacuum tumbler if you want to store a blended recipe for later with minimal nutrient loss.
Better nutrition is the key feature of vacuum blending and removing the air protects ingredients from the rapid oxidation associated with traditionally blended recipes, maintaining higher levels of nutrition for longer. The vacuum tumbler provided allows you to store recipes under vacuum for later consumption, with extremely low degradation of the nutritional content. This is the big plus with vacuum blenders that we think health enthusiasts will love as this new way of blending becomes more well known. With a few optional extra vacuum tumblers you could make all your smoothies, nut milks or raw soups for the week in one session and store them in the fridge, safe in the knowledge that they will still be fresh and brimming with nutrition when you are ready to use them.
With 3.5 hp peak power the Kuvings Vacuum Blender won’t flinch at the demands of raw and living foods enthusiasts who want to make nut milks, green smoothies, raw soups and any recipes with hard to blend ingredients. Finely broken down fibres and smooth results are easily achieved with the range of simple and intuitive controls on the minimalist LED backlit front panel of the blender. Three buttons across the top of the panel allow you to choose functions for vacuum only, blending only, or one touch auto vacuum plus blending. The central power button is also the speed dial for manually selecting blending speeds up to 20,000 rpm and a flick to the left on the dial gives you the pulse function. With such an intuitive design the new vacuum blending technology is quick and easy to get to grips with, so making the healthiest possible soups and smoothies will rapidly become second nature with the SV500. Highly recommended.
I’ve had one of these blenders now for a few months and it’s just brilliant. It stops rapid oxidation (when using the Vacuum feature) that happens in things like apples and other fruits. I also purchased some extra storage vessels (you get one with the blender) which can also have a vacuum applied to it which helps preserve the contents for a longer period. You also get an excellent warranty. I also own a Kuvings slow juicer and thats another super piece of kit, so easy to clean after my Champion.

My experience with the Kuvings vacuum blender has been very positive. I have used it for 2 months. – After a short time of use, you get accustomed to it – and it is absolutely not difficult to use. Soon it becomes very clear, that this is a very well constructed blender – and this explains the price. This is not a discount-machine, but one that is built for really serious people, who know what they want.
One of the nicest features of the Kuvings vacuum blender is the noise reduction shield. Of course this will not eliminate the noise, but it is quite efficient in reducing the noise, so that it becomes tolerable. If you blend daily, this is quite important.
The noise reduction shield is one of the reasons, that the blender is much bigger and taller, than I had expected …. I was really astonished, when I received it, but because it looks quite good, I am okay today with the size of the machine. I am glad, that I chose a white one and not a black one.
The vacuumization gives you smoothies, who taste better and looks better, because they aren’t oxydized. Therefor carrots keep their original colour and don’t become brown. – Another very important feature is the vacuum storage tumbler: With this you can pour the smoothies into the tumbler, vacuum-seal it, and store it into the refrigerator. This is a huge step forward, because under vacuum the smoothies (or fresh juices from your juicing machine) will keep fresh longer in the fridge, and the taste won’t degrade.
It is fascinating to look at the vacuumization-process, when bubbles go up to the surface: When the vacuumization stage is over, the machine will blend fully automatically. It is really convenient.
But in order to have a perfect vacuum-function you have to clean it immediately after use – and do it thoroughly. Cleaning is made quickly, and it is in no way difficult. But you really have to keep the parts of the machine, who are important to the vacuumization, absolutely clean – and if you don’t, the blender will give you a message, that there are problems with the vacuum-function. – Also, if you overfill the blender, the machine will warn you with a message.
If you clean it – which is super-easy – and if you don’t overfill the blender, it will function absolutely perfectly. I “only” give it 4 stars and not 5, because you do have to take care of this.
The 1.500 watt motor is very strong, and it is air-cooled, so that it will never overheat. There are absolutely no problems with crushing frozen berries or almonds. Therefor the warranty gives you 10 years on the motor, and 2 years on parts. This is completely different from the cheap discount-blenders, who “die” after a few years.
Before I bought the machine, it wasn’t quite clear to me that the aforementioned tumbler – Kuvings Vacuum Blender SV-500 Tumbler – is an accessory that follows the machine – but it really is. Because I didn’t know this, I ordered one, so now I have two tumblers. But this is good, because now I can make two different smoothies in advance and keep them super-fresh in the refrigerator.
I will give the blender my full recommendation. – Jens from Denmark.
