Vela Evolution is the natural evolution of Vela. The high-end styling makes this blender the sportiest looking kitchen appliance. The capacity is larger than most blenders. The pulse options are powerful. One offers an automatic blade spin with pulses timed to allow ice chunks to settle and meet the blade. The other allows the cook to take control. The four speeds for blending meet every need. The handy and light jar, made of TRITAN PCT (BPA-free) can be stored on the power base in 4 different positions.
