You can’t go wrong with this machine, but no need to upgrade from earlier models.

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!

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.

Upgraded from a regular Nutribullet. It has made eating vegetables and fruit waaay easier. Did you know orange peels, green carrot tops, and banana peels contain a lot of nutrition? I’ve been filling mine almost to the brim with raw vegetables and fruit and the smoothies come out super smooth using the smoothie preset.

My goodness this thing is amazing. My husband’s parents used to have a Vitamix that he would make fruit smoothies in and so we found this great deal and purchased this one hoping that it would be similar and work just as good but this thing is even better! We have been using it to make plenty of fruit smoothies and they are sooo yummy. Comment if you’d like my secret recipe. Additionally, I have also made some awesome coffee blends in it and am looking forward to using it for other types of foods too. I definitely recommend it though and would invest in a good one like this if you’re able because they last forever too.

It definitely meets my expectations in the few months I have owned this blender. I have made milkshakes, smoothies and hot soups so far. I really like the presets. It’s nice to be able to walk away from the blender and let it go to work for me. With the blenders I had in the past, I was often frustrated with chunks of this and pieces of that in my smoothies. I have no problem with chewing my smoothies anymore with the Vitamix.

This is a life-changing appliance!

I bought this blender as a Valentine’s Day gift for my wife. Normally, buying electronics for your wife on Valentine’s results in the gift being thrown at your head, but this got me a huge kiss from her. We love our Vitamix.

Easily my favorite and most used kitchen appliance. Other blenders just can’t compete, plus it makes salsa, sauces, hot soup and ice cream/sorbet. I use it at least once a day, often more. It easily blends whole fruits and vegetables so you can get their full nutritional benefits and pulverizes chia and flax seeds, ginger root, etc. There are so many delicious things you can do with this machine! Plus, it’s super easy to clean!
