I was very interested in trying this model Vitamix as I currently own an older model (the 5000) and have been drooling over the newer features. No, there was nothing at all wrong with my 5000 and it still worked perfectly but I really liked the newer container with the better handle grip…and the grass is always greener, right?

Buying a reconditioned Vitamix Standard Program machine is a great option. Not only is the price significantly discounted, but the only measurable difference between it and a new machine is that the warranty is five instead of seven years.

I bought Vitamix (Reconditioned) 45 days ago and I am loving it. I am basically doing smoothies for my breakfast. Didn’t try the soups or frozen deserts yet. It blends so quickly and smoothly. When I got the Vitamix , I did a test for black specs i.e to run plain water at high speed for 30-60 sec to see if there are any black specs/particles. I did find those black specs and I contacted customer service immediately. They responded quickly and told me that sometimes those specs are found in some jars and they replaced me with a new container. And the new container passed the test .. wohooo so happy 🙂 Of course the shipping took some time but hey I got a problem free container that’s enough for me.Then I started my everyday smoothies and I have so many recipes to try like soups , peanut butter , frozen ice cream but I know that vitamix is not going to disappoint. The clean up is so easy, just add 1 drop of soap with 1.5 cups of water and run it on high for 10 secs , that’s it so simple , after that rinse it with plain water. Vitamix comes in a sturdy packaging along with recipe book, CD and a tamper tool.

Okay, I am so ready to start the war – Vitamix vs Blendtec vs Ninja vs Bullet (any bullet, nutribullet, baby bullet). NOBODY rocks a blender like Vitamix. This will be my FIFTH Vitamix (and I own the nutribullets and the Ninja and I SCOFF loudly at Blendtec). Here’s the story… My family owned the stainless steel Vtiamix blenders – from the Danbury Fair days! YES – the early 70’s back when there was a REVERSE and the stainless steel container had a spigot! When I moved, I got to take that. A year later I picked up ANOTHER stainless steel 70’s Vitamix at a church fair – for – wait for it – 50 cents!! When I had my first baby 10 years ago, I sold both Vitamixes on ebay to generate the cash to get a brand new Vitamix 4000 series. And we made EVERY single serving of baby food that our two kids ate. At $1++ a tiny serving for organic food – we blended the heck out of every organic squash, rice, banana, apple, cherry, broccoli, YOU NAME IT – we blended it – froze it into cubes and saved THOUSANDS of dollars in baby food. Can I just tell you that my kids are still on p. 1 of their pediatricians booklet – NEVER SICK – food was the key!

Love It!

Wow! What a great machine. Wish I’d bought one long ago. It lived up to’its reputation with one recipe. I make vegan mayonnaise with no oil for a friend. I made in my B & D blender and, as it’s made with cashews, it turned out chunky. Now chunky peanut nut butter is great but not mayonnaise. Next, I tried my food processor. Got grainy mayonnaise. Got my Vitamix and the first thing I did was make cashew mayonnaise. Perfect. Now, my family prefers the vegan version over store bought mayo. If you have one, by all means, use it for more than smoothies. It makes great smoothies but does so much more.

I’m going to review the Vitamix 1888 — a part of the 6300 line. In my short time as a part of the Vitamix club I’ve concluded you won’t find a more worthwhile investment in your health. But there’s more than one reason why, so read on below!

It says refurbished but everything looked, smelled, and works just like new. Every piece, even the cookbook. My brother paid double for the same exact model back when it was available at Costco.

What in the world did I ever do before this Vitamix?

 on October 24, 2016
By TechnologyLovingMom
What in the world did I ever do before this Vitamix? I know, I was always stopping the blender and sticking a wooden spoon into it to stir things up. I was very hesitant about getting a Vitamix because of the price and because the container is plastic. Here’s what I’ve learned. The container is plastic because the blades go at such a high speed, that you need something stronger than glass to contain everything. Otherwise, you’d end up with shards of glass in your smoothie…not yum. Once upon a time, there was an option for stainless steel, but they stopped making it because everyone wanted to see inside the container.

If you make smoothies with greens like spinach or kale, this is a must. This unit emulsifies everything, smoothies are actually smooth. Much better than the Ninja Blender and Nutribullet (both have been taken to Goodwill). Great for making soups, hummus and smoothies. Has different auto settings for smoothies, frozen drinks and soups. Or you can run it manually by pulsing it or allowing it to run. The refurbished unit is a great bargain!

Where have you been all of my life?

Apparently, I am hard on blenders because I have owned quite a few – Black and Decker, Kitchen Aid, Oster – just to name a few. All of these were hard to clean and just didn’t blend well enough to please me. I decided that I would upgrade after this last one died. I was torn between a Vitamix and a Blendtec. As it happens, I was shopping at Home Goods and saw a Blendtec for $200. I was thrilled to find that blender at such a great price and promptly purchased it. I came home with it to make my first smoothie. I put all of the ingredients in the jar. Turned it on only to find smoke coming from the base! Not only was it smoking but it was the LOUDEST blender I have ever used including all the “cheap” brands. I called the 800 number for Blendtec and told them what had just happened. Much to my surprise, the Customer Service Rep said, “That’s to be expected.” I asked her if she heard what I said as I had told her that smoke was coming from the blender base!? She told me she understood precisely what I had said and that I should be patient with it as “the wires in the base need to seat”. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing!!!! I asked her again if this product was defective and if so, should I return it to Blendtec? She again informed me that it would not be necessary but that I should be patient. I questioned her about the blender being so loud? Again, she said that was normal. Well, it was not going to be my normal. I then went on Vitamix.com. When I could not decide on which blender would be best for me, I called their Customer Service Department. Talk about a totally different experience! Day and night. I couldn’t have been more please with their representative. Answered ALL of my questions and took a lot of time helping me choose a blender. I ordered through Amazon (I use smile.amazon.com) and received my blender in a timely fashion. I was so excited to use it that as soon as it arrived, I found something to blend. Wow! What a difference! I have made sauces, smoothies, milkshakes, and even grated Parmesan with great results. I can’t believe I waited so long to purchase this blender.
