Rated 5 out of 5 by Gasser Same Vitamix Quality-Great addition!
I love my VItamix and thanks to QVC, this great little container was a fabulous price. First of all, let me address some of the negative reviews who complained to QVC for NOT including a tamper- VITAMIX never includes a tamper for the Dry Container. It's a VITAMIX product decision, NOT a QVC option. Please understand that PROPER use of the dry container does NOT require a tamper. Although you CAN grind dry grains in your regular wet Vitamix containers, the grains will not spin as evenly inside the wet containers, will need a tamper to prevent packing at the bottom of the container and the dry grains and beans will mar the containers, causing them to become cloudy. Dry containers have a different shaped blade that cause the foods to spin in what Vitamix describes as a "reverse Vortex" so that the contents are pushed away from the blades to prevent packing. By nature, there is no need for a tamper. My favorite use for the dry container is for grinding wheat and using the Vitamix whole wheat waffle recipe. Combined with the Waring Pro 1400W Professional DOUBLE Waffle iron (also available on QVC), these waffles are intoxicating! Because of the easy use and clean up of the dry container, I usually only grind enough grain for one recipe to keep the flour fresh. In addition to grains, you can also use the dry container for coffee beans and for kneading bread.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Alie49 Good price
Returning only because the machine is going back that this fits on. I am saddened because this was a super priced add-on but with nothing to use it with I cannot use it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by US_510 Love it
Bought the excellent priced Vitamix dry grinder 2 week back and have used it since then and just love it.Amazing is the customer service of QVC too. My jar arrived without the Recipe book and when I called in to QVC customer support and reported the same, I received the book via mail last evening.
Will use the powerful jar even more with the help of the recipe book.

I'd have given this 0 stars if I could. This container came with no blade, no lid, no recipe book. It is stamped "Dairy" on the side and states it fits only the Starbuck's "AVG" model which I don't see QVC sells. It's going back.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JoeGr Great addition to my Vitamix
The first thing that I made with my dry container was whole wheat bread. The result was substantially better than store bought whole wheat bread. The store bought bread was so coarse that I stopped buying whole wheat bread. After I got the whole wheat berries and ground it into flour, the bread that was produced was very light in texture.. not coarse at all. The other big advantage of the dry container is that it kneads the bread in seconds without me ever having to touch the bread dough. I stopped making bread the traditional way in part because kneading the bread was very time consuming and messy. The other benefit is that a lot of the freshness and nutrition is lost when buying store bought whole wheat flour. Grinding the berries into flour just before baking seems to produce a much lighter and flavorful bread with more nutrition and the bread seems to stay fresher longer. This accessory great enhances the uses for the Vitamix. and once again proves the superiority of the Vitamix to any other machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AJERSEYGIRL129 No bonus value without the tamper!
Purchased this as a bonus value with the Vitamix TSV.
My Vitamix was on a waitlist since I wanted the platinum, so when my dry container arrived prior to the Vitamix itself, I put the box away.
My Vitamix finally arrived so I opened both boxes and unpacked everything, only to realize they don't include the tamper with the dry blade container. I am appalled, that's an essential part of the process! So much for the "bonus value" when you still need to purchase the tamper that fits this container. the one for the Vitamix is too long for this shorter one.
I would rather have the tamper for the dry blade container instead of the recipe book that contains many recipes that tell you to use the wet blade container!??

Come on QVC--how disappointing to get this container and have to go out and buy a tamper for another $15. Next time, keep the recipe book and include the tamper.

You can do all the dry grinding and mix all you batters the way the machine was designed to be used. This was half the price of my local Costco.

I do not know why I waited so long to purchase this - and the vitamix. I easily ground teff to make gluten free teff bread. I LOVE this!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Debideedog The best purchase I've made all year!
I've been following the Eat to Live program and tried making oat flour from oatmeal for a 3 ingredient cookie recipe but I couldn't do it until I got this baby. It turned the oatmeal into flour in about 30 seconds! And on QVC it was HALF the price of what Vitamix charges!
I'm thrilled with this purchase and can't wait to make some chick pea flour next!
Thank you for helping me to live a healthier lifestyle at a great cost!
